    Does anybody have any feedback on how speed compares to the standard s6 edge? I know they are identical in almost all respects but does that extra 1gig memory make any noticeable difference?

    I got mine and it seems quite a lot faster actually. No lag or anything. It's really fast

    I had to return my regular s6 Edge due to several issues. One being the lag and the sporadic freezing of apps and keyboard. I received my S6 Edge+ yesterday and have really put it through a workout. So far, not one instance of lag or freezing up. I am using several PlayStore apps for messaging and email, and not one issue. My device is super smooth and quick and I am super happy with the battery life so far. I hope this might help.

    It does help. Makes me wonder if those same issue I am seeing in my s6 edge are just a matter of a little more memory. I wish that companies did not skimp on such trivialities. That increase in memory is a trivial increase in cost.

    The edge+ may not overcome my main complaint of Samsung phones.

    You did see that the note was faster, right? The edge+ has the same internals as the note

    No it was not faster when it came to moving amongst apps. It fell apart. I do that all day long. The cpu tests which it won hands down is nothing I do. Who transcodes video or audio files on their phone? I had hoped that extra gig of memory would have made a difference.

    Fastest phone I've ever owned. Especially rocking Nova Launcher Prime with animations turned to "Fast as Lightning". WOW. The 4GB RAM really shows

    Compared to the iPhone 6+, the edge+ is noticeably faster. I notice the speed difference also compared to the Note 4, where at times on the note 4 I would notice lags. Nothing like that on the edge+. In addition, the scrolling, and other operations are extremely smooth. As smooth as the IPhone 6+, if not smoother.

    Samsung has really refined the technology. I am very impressed with this phone, and I suspect the Note 5 would be similar.

    The edge plus is fast, no lag or stuttering. Coming from a Nexus, I am very surprised by how well it's working so far.

    I have the s6 edge and I notice the same thing. It also messes with notifications. Sometimes I don't get certain notifications till I wake up the phone. I never had this issue with any of my other phones. Samsung really messed up this time and if this isn't fixed soon I'm sure it'll lose a lot more customers.

    B-b-but the spec sheet says 4GB of RAM. That automatically means the Samsung is better!!!!!

    I had the regular S6, not the S6 Edge, but the comparison should be similar. Overall, things seem pretty much on par between my recently purchased S6 Edge+ and my previous S6. I do, however, notice that Chrome tabs do not reload as often on my Edge+ compared to the S6. I haven't done any testing like in the videos, but it sure seems very snappy to me. I don't notice any lag or stutter like I have on many previous Android phones I've used. I think it feels faster than my iPhone 6+ to be honest, but of course that has a lot less RAM.
