    Are the "Samsung" and "Galaxy S6" brandings etched onto the rear glass?

    Hey Andrew,

    What is it like to type with the S6 edge while in landscape? Does the curve affect the keyboard?
    I find it awkward to type landscape on a phone no matter what, but no the curve doesn't seem to make that big of a difference.

    It should be said that the keyboard is in no way changed on the S6 edge to keep it off of the curved portions. So the keys on the left and right edges (in portrait) are on the top of the curve. Its noticeable, but I don't think it hurts the typing experience much.

    Are the "Samsung" and "Galaxy S6" brandings etched onto the rear glass?
    I can't feel anything when I rub my fingers over the glass on the back, so I have a feeling they're etched on the inside of the glass (which is super thin, btw).

    Hello!

    Maybe this first question has been asked but, does the notification light have different colors depending on the app that the notification is coming from?

    And do you feel that the current cases for the S6 will sufficiently cover the protuberance of the camera so that it doesnt get scratched super easy?

    Yeah I've seen a few different colors. But there don't seem to be any settings to configure the LED for notifications.

    And do you feel that the current cases for the S6 will sufficiently cover the protuberance of the camera so that it doesnt get scratched super easy?
    Considering the large lip and bezel around the camera, a case would have to be pretty significantly thick in order to "protect" it. Thing is, as it stands now with no case I'm not particularly worried about the camera lens scratching. As I said earlier in this thread, I've owned dozens of phones and never had a single one with a scratched camera lens... no matter how much the camera stuck out of the back.

    I'll be doing a more in-depth comparison of the two, but it's really going to come down to size and features. The Note 4 is just too big for me to use regularly, as is the case for many people, while the S6 is actually manageable in one hand on a regular basis.

    Of course the Note 4 also has its S Pen and the big screen features. Both phones have about the same software, display quality, performance and camera, so that part is a bit of a wash. And no matter how you slice it, the larger battery in the Note 4 is just going to last longer.

    Hi Andrew,

    Sorry if this has been asked before - Is it possible to disable the camera activation from double home button press? I have a nasty habit of mashing my home button on my phones multiple times and wouldn't want the camera to launch.

    Hello Andrew,

    I wanted to know how is the browsing experience on the S6 edge (in addition, watching videos in other formats other than 16:9). I read an S6 edge review on Frandroid, a dedicated android website for my fellow french speaking users, and the reviewer noted that the curve screen makes reading on the web less pleasurable than the S6. What do you think?

    Yup, just a toggle in the camera settings you can turn on/off as you wish.

    I mean you'd be crazy to think that the curved screen doesn't do something to change how web pages and videos look, but I think it's going overboard to say that it hinders your ability to do any of those things. Web pages with text or images that go all the way to the edges do look a little funky on the S6 edge, and you can notice on videos where the curve is, but I don't think it's a reason not to buy the phone. I just think it's another thing to consider when you put it in perspective with the few positive software things that the S6 edge offers.

    Maybe Ive missed this. But Ive noticed the branding on the back. Where is says Galaxy s6 or Edge. Will that be on all the phones? OR is this because you have review units.... Didnt notice them in any of the pictures at the launch. Maybe thats just common practice though.

    Probably because the people who need to go and get help are the people who don't know or care about replacing the launcher.

    That's definitely on all of the phones. It'll say the model at the bottom of the back, with a Samsung logo at the top. Carriers are replacing the back Samsung logo with their own logos, but the phone name will stay at the bottom regardless.

    I'm currently using a Note4, previously from Note3... From your point of view, Do you think is it worth it to change from Note4 to S6?? If yes, what would be the best reasons... thanks..
    As I mentioned above, it'll be a tough decision there. I'm not immediately seeing any reasons to drop a Note 4 for the S6, assuming you have no problems witih the Note 4's physical size and actually enjoy its extra features.

    Awesome work. Thanks for putting so many hours into answering everybody's questions.
    Of course, all part of the job.

    Hi Andrew, I want to know does S6 has the Chinese language?
    On these T-Mobile units, I see German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Korean and Japanese in the "language" settings.

    Is there any way you could test the edge features with GO launcher? That will be the only thing that will stop me from getting the edge. It would be greatly appreciated Thank you.

    Covered already. Smart Lock is here and working.

    Pretty clear at this point that after the initial bug/reboot the edge swiping is working with third party launchers.

    I read the specs online about the S6 models. I noticed that there is no external memory card slot and that the battery is not removable. If this is true, Samsung is trying to turn their flagship phone into the next iPhone! The reasons I bought the Samsung models in the past was because there was an SD slot to expand the phones memory and a removable battery! I am an electronics technician, and being able to remove a battery to sever connection to the mother board is essential. One of the things I tell people having trouble with their electronic devices is this: turn it off and unplug the power source (power cord or battery), and leave it unplugged for about a minute before reconnecting and powering back on the device. This is the only way to get rid of the extra 1's & 0's that cause problems in all electronic devices. Has Apple bought Samsung or has Samsung lost its identity and trying to be like the popular kids
