    If it were me, I'd wait - you don't seem fully sold on the S6. If that changes, buy it! Especially if you can get one of those awesome emerald ones or the iron man edition.

    Was going to order a Edge 64GB Green, but after following it for weeks and reading all kind of problems it having. Decided to go for S6 Flat 64GB Blue instead. Now waiting for it to arrive (around 1-3 days) and hopes for a perfect unit without any problems.

    Congrats. Passed in the Edge as I couldn't justify the vslue of the additional functionality and it didn't feel as premium as the regular GS6. Hit us back with feedback when you get it. Enjoy!

    I thought this phone was selling well but early indications are that it's doing worse than the S5
    http://uk.businessinsider.com/samsun...es-2015-5?r=US

    The article isn't explicit about the edge variant so maybe those aren't included?

    Never let sales figures prevent you from buying anything that meets your needs way to many people just fall for marketing and hurd buy.

    Aside from the card slot, waterproof and larger battery, how? Sure battery life will better being larger. Same tired, plastic design, are you really going to be in aquatic environment needing water proofing. Analog recent app and back buttons versus capacitive. Don't miss the card slot or swappable battery. That just my take. If you like it, get whatever works best for you and that you like.
    he said the smaller, non removable battery is the issue, so assuming he's on at&t that would be a better solution for him.

    a lot of people, myself included, don't care about aesthetics as much as a removable, larger battery ... especially if they're gonna slap a case on it anyway.

    Get a 64GB Galaxy S6 for the price of the 32GB model with T-Mobile's Memorial Day sale http://www.androidcentral.com/t-mobi...-cost-and-more

    Sounds like a great deal.

    Touchwizz is slower and uglier than Sense from two years ago, I would definitely take stock over tw anyday.

    dreaming of electric sheep
    Having just come from an HTC Droid DNA I can tell you that touch whiz on the S6 is not slower than sense was on a Kit Kat DNA

    There is no "aside from". The reasons you listed are the reasons why it's better. Who really gives a crap on what it looks like? Function over form.

    People that are more concerned on how a phone looks (mainly women but sometimes men as well) and pick a phone on what they perceive others will say are plain sad. If someone really cares about looking 'cool' might as well get the stupid Iphone. Hahaha.

    What's my priority, fast stable, force close free, great camera, root ability and Roms down the line over everything . All else is 2nd place.

    Why are you constantly on this forum arguing and making your point? Waterproof does not add function, what's are you trying to say? We, the owners of the S6, don't care for the removable battery and SD card....can't you accept it? You need to deal with it finally rather than coming here crying how the Active S6 (rumored) is the proper S6...removing battery is also not functional in my books, my last 4 phones had not removable battery and never once did I have concerns.

    You madr your point, we get it...why do you keep regenerating it???

    Wth the exception of the battery, both variants are equally spec'd. Tomorrow is throwback Thursday.

    I have always been consistently about function and performance over form. You just want what you felt you were entitled to I the first place, a great device with soon-to-be, possibly throwback features. It's like having a 2026 Challenger with the throwback headlights and state of the art 21st century muscle car. Nothing wrong with that. Just making my choice to look forward. If the Active works best for you...

    Battery life is fine for me, but the battery on my Galaxy s3 was going bad before I got the Galaxy s6 so perhaps I'm just use to the poor battery life. Overall the hardware is great, but there are many software customizations which are available on the Galaxy s3 which are no longer available on the s6. The software is quite a regression from the s3 and I really wish I had gone with buying a new battery for the old phone rather than upgrading.

    Some of the features can be downloaded in the Samsung App Store. There's a section just for the Galaxy S6.

    Options I used in the past that are not present in the Samsung Galaxy s6 include:

    1. Show only contacts with phone numbers in the contacts menu.
    2. Control LED notifications beyond on and off
    3. Holding down on a text message to add the number to contacts.
    4. Cyclical scrolling through the app menu.
    5. Having a button to bring up the settings menu in an app.

    I found an app that sort of fixes the issue of (2) (Although not perfectly.), but the others are just annoying changes for which I have found no fix.

    I'm sure that there are many more software regressions as well. I've read about a few of them that other people are having trouble with today. All and all the ability to customize the phone is decreased over previous versions.
