    So we're being fed marketing hype about a toned down phone and they're installing 56 apps on it? Really? Come on Samsung...

    "Out of the box, 32GB versions of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have just 24GB of free space. This isn’t actually much greater than the Galaxy S4 and S5, which also have about 8GB of non-removable bloat, but it remains a far cry from the image of super slick, stripped back software that Samsung is selling...While it is possible to ‘disable’ apps all this does is hide them from view. The storage impact of these apps remains...it starts to become more obvious why Samsung felt the need to increase the entry level Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge to 32GB."

    Forbes is always laughable, I don't know why they pretend to be a tech site.

    For starters, 32GB storage were never physically 32GB to begin with, and they are pretending somehow the android system takes no space at all, or do they consider the OS itself is also "Bloat"? I'd like to see they remove that.

    Its stupid.

    It's still 56 pre-installed apps though right? Who needs that crap.

    Forbs's article is filled with misinformation and magical dusts. I would not believe their number until they show proof. They want to claim 56 pre-installed app? They should go ahead produce a list.

    We'll wait and see once the phone is in consumers' hands.

    Still, the "toned-down" and "completely lag-free" Touchwiz was paraded endlessly with last year's S5 - it's good to sceptical this time around too.
