    Samsung has announced their new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones, and The Verge has a nice photo essay and a detailed article on the phones.

    Macrumors did a decent job of collecting a lot of specs in one compact paragraph:

    Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have improved hardware specifications in most areas, each featuring a 5.1-inch 2560×1440 Super AMOLED display at 577 ppi, Exynos 8-core processor, 3GB of RAM up, 32GB to 128GB of internal storage, Category 6 LTE, 802.11/a/c Wi-Fi, Bluetooth LE, NFC and 2,550 mAh and 2,600 mAh batteries respectively. The devices will run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

    I am hoping my employer will upgrade us to the S6. They upgraded our sales group to the iPhone 6 a few months back and the service side uses The S3, S4 and S5. I have had an S3 for almost 2 years and I am ready for an S6 and have been careful with the S3 to avoid upgrading to an S5.

    From a design perspective it's the phone that Samsung customers have been clamoring about. However, there has been a large amount of backlash due to the lack of a removable battery and MicroSD card.

    The glare on the sides of the screen where the glass bends is terrible.

    So they got rid of water resistance, removable battery and expandable storage? Those features are what kept people loyal to Samsung.

    Bend gate is stupid and so is this. The only real problem Apple has had over the years is the reception problems of the iphone 4. Everything else is just clickbait.

    I don't know if the news reached this forum about the supposed gap between the screen and the frame when the Note 4 first came out, but where did all those people go? I'm typing this from a Note 4 as we speak and it looks perfect. In fact that supposed manufacturing issue was actually in the Note 4 manual :lol:

    These things are only blown out of proportion to get clicks and views. Where did all the bending iphone people go? Exactly.

    Stop getting so bent out of shape. We all had to sit back and endure the barrage of crap from Android fans when "bendgate" happened to Apple and the media jumped all over it (where are the media now, one wonders?). It's not personal.

    Was me being "bent out of shape" a bad pun? :)

    I don't know what you're talking about. I'm an Android fan and I'm defending Apple here if you didn't notice.

    To be honest, it wasn't until after I typed it that I saw what I had posted. :D

    Does this mean S6 and S6 Edge owners will be wallhuggers.
