    MKBHD just uploaded his Samsung Galaxy s6 review! He is (in my opinion) the best phone reviewer on YouTube so you can trust what he says for sure, no bias and gives all phones a fair chance.
    So yeah, here you go you

    Always impressed by Marques reviews. Speaks it like he sees it .Haven't got mine as yet as I am waiting for the green edge variant, but the s6 will be my next phone.

    Very good review. Definitely will subscribe. Like the way he didn't make a big deal about the battery in that he tried to qualify his remarks that he is getting a spread of usage times and not consistently bad. Like all reviews I would like to see some consideration for carrier and coverage area to provide context. Overall, he is very objective and gave the phone a big thumbs up. Liked his remarks about Touchwiz.

    Great review, but was weird how he had such inconsistent battery life and managed to get the double tap to launch the camera to go off in his pocket a few times. I was hoping he'd reference whether he's seeing cell standby/Google services drain, but he didn't.

    I think my battery usage has been a little all over the place. When I was traveling, I had it on airplane mode w/bluetooth ON watching a couple of episodes of my sitcoms (So about 45 mins continuous screen on). That day, I had crazy high screen on time. 4-4.5 hours i believe. Normally I get about 3-3.5. Guess those radios are huge drains (though my signal is usally pretty good.)

    One thing I also wish they would do when testing battery life and SOT is to moderate usage as opposed to heavy usage exclusively. Not saying he did. Inconsistencies could be where he is and what he is doing. Who has four hours to play games and other resource intensive tasks and works during the day? I wish I could.

    Saw this earlier.
    The battery comments are a common theme in all reviews. He's not actually a heavy user. He got better battery on the M9 too, but that doesn't have quick charge out of the box (you have to buy your own quick charger, that's lazy just like Motorola!).
    The camera and screen as per usual got a lot of praise. These are the key selling points for this phone.

    I tried out the S6 and edge properly in the shop today myself. I still feel the S6 looks very much like an S2-S5. It didn't look that different to me just because it had metal and glass. It was too 'Samsung-y' for my tastes and I wasn't feeling it. The screen was the best screen I've seen. I watched several trailers, photos and read text on the internet. It all looked pin-sharp and a heck of a lot more vibrant and sharper the iPhone 6 near it.
    The build quality was great (nicer than the iPhone 6 but not quite as good as the M8/M9 yet in my opinion, those look and feel classier), the UI was fast but I got it to lag a few times by flicking through Flipboard, apps, gallery and a video. I'm putting this down to lollipop and the fact every single feature on the phone was switched on.

    As good as it looked, I didn't like the front of the phone because I'm not a fan of the Samsung-y design of the Galaxy S and Note series. It's kinda like a 'design by committee' look and too conservative and safe. Not my thing.

    So I went over to the edge and the screen on this is just amazing -- even better than the S6. I feel the curve gives the illusion that the image is closer to the glass and that makes quite a bit of difference to the experience. The glare wasn't that bad as a trade-off. The overall design was pretty darn good too and it didn't look like previous Samsung devices. The edges were a little sharp in the hand but it's something I can get used to. Really, the screen on this is something special; factor in all the other strong points of the S6, this is the model to get in my opinion. It's a shame the green model isn't available today otherwise I would have immediately bought one.

    Speaking of cell standby and play services, since the push and Google updates I haven't seen them in my list at all no matter what I do. I'm even testing with wifi scanning on right now with VoLTE and wifi never sleeping and I don't think it effectively increase my battery life.
    If this is true (need to test more) than my S6 is better than my m8 by leaps and bounds in battery life.

    Have to agree about the S6 Edge, but it's subjective because not everyone is okay with the in-hand feel. Other than that, I agree. I get people commenting on this thing everyday because of how gorgeous it is.
