    I'm not playing with you, I promise that this is a fact. The first day I got the edge I went to other stores to see if the demo edges were doing the same thing with the display. They were. Now I'm waiting to hear if this can be fixed ota. This is bothering me a lot bC I bought the phone outright.

    You have 14 days to take it back. If it passes the date what are you going to do?

    I swear I'm not playing with anyone. I'm not an *****. I have better things to do. I always check these pages first to see if other people are having similar problems

    I just called t mobile to try to get a longer grace period. I don't know what I'm going to do yet, hoping for a fix. Still got 12 days

    Because I was the first person to prove that the problem exists with one of their techs.
    That really sticks. Kind of a catch 22 as well if your in the united States because who knows when the fix will be pushed out.

    Very unlikely an OTA will be available so soon but I'm leaning towards returning the phone right away

    I would if it were me. Having fill control of screen brightness is paramount for myself.

    This situation just sucks because I love this phone. I'd rather not return it. I have the galaxy gear s watch. The fact that they missed such an easy glitch b4 they released the phone amazes me.

    Perhaps swap for the standard s6?

    debating that but love the scrolling scores on the off screen. I already got rid of my s5, that was a mistake

    Just got back from Best Buy. I compared my s6 Edge with a regular s6 and s5 and note 4. Funny it looks all the same but wit my G3 and wife's S5 it seems dimmer. I made sure all of them were the same. Full blast with no saving mode....
    Now what??

    The problem is take the edge into dark lighting, the display will darken. Under flurescent light the display looks amazing.

    So it auto darkens even when auto adjust is turned off?

    This seems like its 100% software related. Hope they are able to push a fix soon.

    Just noticed! With the battery saving mode off and the brightness all the way up I was in the dark and it was dim. I took it outside and it got bright. It's not suppose to do that. I have it manual! There's something malfunctioning or it was just designed that way... Can a OTA fix that?

    Is this really a problem I should worry about ..Was going to buy one tomorrow morning. The regular one doesn't have this issue?

    Yes, I'd wait until a fix bc your going to have the same problem. The regular s6 is fine of you want that but every edge is messed up. It might require a recall on all of them if it can't be fixed ota

    Here's my s6 Edge on the right and my wife's s5 on the left. Note that both phones are on max brightness and no battery saving mode... Once you move the phone to a lit room or outside the brightness goes higher. It's either a glitch or Samsung made it this way to conserve battery. I'm sure it can be fix with a OTA but if by the 13th day it doesn't get fixed I'm talking it back

    I spoke to Samsung, this is a fuk up. The regular s6 does not do this. This phone is not supposed to do this unless u want it to which is why they offer powersaving or auto brightness.

    Just did the same test with a LG G2. It's even brighter than the S6.

    Yep...looks like an edge problem. Guessing the flexible screen inside has different properties.
