I like the regular S6 just thinking twice because I'm satisfied with S5 and has better battery life.

I am quite upset that at the unveiling there were all these awesome colors, and these carriers are only selling them in the blandest iPhone-like colors possible. I wanted it in blue, but no go. I will stick with my iPhone 5S for now until it is available in some of the really nice colors it was unveiled in.

I don't haave a full answer, but based on previous models this is what I came up with. The White and Black are available now. The Gold will start shipping in May. I know this because I preorder the Gold color with Verizon and it said it won't ship until May. The Green and Blue are likely the International versions or can only be purchased directly from Samsung. I say this because the S5 was also available in colors other than Black and White, but you could only get them in certain regions or you had to buy the unlock International model from Samsung directly. To see the other colors if available, try visiting a carrier site of Samsung site that is not the USA site as those sites will only show USA available models.

For you guys !http://smartcam.club/node/3284 "Most important for this post is how the Samsung Galaxy S6 is acually performing against the other high-end smartcams, like the 808 PureView, the Lumia 1020, Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 - but also against the brand new HTC One M9" ..." it looks like Samsung has a potential winner with the Galaxy S6 (and S6 Edge)."

Got mine and it had a small abrasion on the aluminum frame. I am going to take it back for exchange. It was a preorder but placed in store. Should I take it back to the store or call T-Mobile? Any one else have out of the box problems? This phone should hold me over until a beast Lumia launches

Yes because the Gold wont be available until MAY. Same with Verizon. So I assume all carriers will have the gold as of May. Best Buy wont be taking orders for the Gold here until May.

Really wanted the blue Samsung Galaxy S6, but there are only ultra bland iPhone colors available. I'll pass for now.

All I have to say is wow!! The speed on this phone is awsome. Faster than my nexus 6. I'm loving the space theme. One thing I have to complaint on is Verizon shipped me a white one when I had preordered a gold one. I called them and they said I can keep this one till I get the gold one. So far I'm using it more than my iPhone 6 plus. The camera has a way faster auto focus than my iphone. I took some pictures with both phones of my 3 year old that can't sit still for one second. The pictures of the S6 are clearer and smoother a lot less blurr on the S6. The other thing I hate is the keyboard I can't type as fast or accurate as the iPhone hands down best key board is the 6 plus. So far really good phone from Samsung.

Ordered a S6 Edge 128GB Platinum Gold version from T-Mobile at 8am PST this morning with the option of overnight shipping. I already had my credit card charged, so it is safe to say tomorrow or Monday is my lucky day!!!! :-)

I will buy it after a year when its price will drop like the s5 dropped to 369$ in my country. I would prefer to buy s6 edge . (Yes I can't afford it now :) )
