    Just saw a summary of specs for both the S6 and S6 Edge. It appears that the battery is larger and a possibly different graphics processor on the Edge? I thought that the only difference was the screen design, flat versus curved on both edges. I know that the Edge also has screen functionality and notifications. Can someone please clarify?

    I was under the assumption they were the same other than the screen.

    The Edge has a little bigger battery, I think 2950 vs 2900. That and the screen is it.

    I believe I read that the batteries were 2550 vs 2600 in AC's mini review. Where did you see 2900 and 2950?

    2900 and 2950 would be great.

    It would. :-) My whole point was there was only a difference of 50 between the two batteries.

    Thanks. Guess I will have to wait and try both. I haven't decided if stereo curves are a novelty to me but it makes the Edge appear more narrow. I am guessing that pricing will be $50 more at each model level for the Edge. I am the Edge will make it challenging for rugged case makers like Otterbox.

    I hope you are right. Thinking it'll be more like $100 more for the Edge....

    Do we know how much cheaper the S6 to the S6 Edge is???
    cnet said the regular S6 is 100 bucks cheaper than the S6 edge. We can get a lot of accessories for $100 or use it for storage upgrade.

    I've seen some good ones thus far from Spigen and Versus.

    Just noticed something on the Edge models now that we're getting photos from the journo-samples. On the Edge models the display spills over onto the side displays, it's NOT kept completely on the flat section. I don't think I like this....
    I don't think it's a concern. Notice how you can still see EVERYTHING on the screen... Nothing is "hidden" from view even if it's displayed on the edge of the screen.

    Yeah, I know, I'm thinking more along the lines of full-screen games, a lot of them place UI elements along the top and bottom edge of the screen (in landscape mode that would land on the curved parts). Yeah, they'll be visible from the front, but how usable will they be since they're sitting on that curve? I'm not interested in finding out by experimentation, I have a feeling it won't be as clean to use as a flat screen.

    I guess I am a die-hard Otterbox and Lifeproof fan. I am planning on getting one of either series rugged case.

    Read somewhere that they letterbox pictures and videos so there's no wrapping around the curve.

    This would make sense. No one would want the top and bottom to wrap around.

    Edge because I like the Note Edge and feel that the curved screen adds value. I would also move to the S6 Edge because I feel that having an Edge screen on both sides would better balance the phone. My only concern is to whether or not they would make glass screen protectors because the only ones available for the Note Edge are film right now.

    If one is released, that's icing on the cake. I would imagine it would be tough to manufacturer with the small edges and not damage them. And shipping would be costly as you'd have to have a molded piece there too.

    I don't think there'll be tempered glass for the S6 Edge. However, I have the Zagg Invisible Shield on my Note Edge and it looks and feels really good. You can barely tell it's there.

    For the GS6, Otterbox has announced the Commuter, Defender and Symmetry. So far, nothing yet for the GS6 Edge.

    Not on their site that I see. You under NDA on it? Definite possibility, they don't even look that bulky.
