Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge Q&A: ask us anything about Samsung's flagships


We're willing to bet that the hottest smartphones in the world right now are the Samsung Galaxy S6 and its curvier sibling, the Galaxy S6 edge. Since their announcement at MWC several weeks ago, geeks, tech enthusiasts, and smartphone aficionados from around the world have been eagerly awaiting the two phones' commercial release. Well, they'll have to wait a bit longer as Samsung won't be launching the S6 and S6 edge before April 10, even though pre-orders for both handsets are set to start on March 27, at least in the U.S. 

Luckily, we happen to have a Samsung Galaxy S6 and a Galaxy S6 edge in our possession. As a matter of fact, our in-depth reviews are now live, and you can go check them out if you want to learn more about Samsung's new flagships. And in case our Galaxy S6 review and Galaxy S6 edge review don't hold the answers you seek, there's always our Q&A session – the post you're currently reading. 

Feel free to ask us anything you wish to know about the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S6 edge in the comments below. After making sure we've not answered your query in our reviews, of course. We'll do our best to answer the questions that we know (or can find) the answer to. Don't be looking for our answers in the comments section, however.

S6 Edge has better battery life, but is more expensive

I think you shouldn;t consider S6 edge "cosmetics aside". Its looks is the main selling point.

Its look would trump the hands on feel any day.

I wouldn't do it, you'll miss the screen and the battery life

I will do it. I might miss the bigger screen, but I won't miss the battery life, since i am always home by 5-6 pm. What i would a gain is a lot, better screen, camera, fingerprint scanner, theme engine, latest and greatest chip, a compact phone, and a hell of a sexy phone with these curves. Anyways, you can ask me anything you want in 3 hours, i am on my way to test the S6 and S6 Edge in Samsung's showroom.

S6 doesn;t have better screen or camera than Note 4.

69. TechieXP1969

YES!!!! It does. The camera is an upgrade over what the Note 4 has. the Note 4 camera on the rear is 2.2Aperture, while its 1.9 on both cameras on the S6/S6 Edge. The display? Though they are both 1440p, the S6 is not using the same display as the Note 4. It is a slightly upgraded one as DisplayMate has already stated. So yes, the cameras and display are better. Display Mate states the S6/S6 Edge display is more power efficient and has better color accuracy

Camera quality which one is better S6 or S6 Edge?

They have the same cameras. Does that answer your question?

hi there, can u pls tell me if the s6 has the same one handed mode like on the note 4 where the whole interface shrinks to an adjustable screen size. i really liked that feature on my friend's s5 and am really looking forward to having it on this as its going to be my next phone, but since i'm upgrading from a 4.5 inch screen, it will be a welcome feature for me.

I have not had the chance to mess with it yet obviously due to it not being out yet but if I were you dude I'd just wait till the note 5 comes out and get that, it will probably have a similar design with a larger screen and longer battery life that's what I'm going to do. This is coming from a fellow note 4 owner

How did the edge feel in the hand for daily use? Did it seem to be "slipperier" than the s6 due to the thinner edges?

Hows the screen on time on both?

Why samsung still uses physical button? I want to know the philosophy behind it.

I prefer the single button that samsung has to be honest.

On screen buttons take up valuable screen real-estate.

real buttons feel better to push then FAKE ONES

Physical buttons are easier to use plus they're not eating 0,35" off the screen.

Can you see any pixels when you try to do it from a very small distance?

What color edge should I get. I really like the white, but on the note 4 the light around back and menu buttons bleed really bad and made it look ugly imo, so I'm nervous that it's going to do the same thing on the s6 edge. Then I would be stuck with a phone that I think is ugly.

What color edge should you get.? Umm i know they said ask anything, but color choice should be all on you.! That's like a personal preference kinda question Lolz, if you need help deciding on what color you should get, then you got more problems then you think.
