Bolded your idiocy so others can mock you too.
EDIT: and if you don't want me giving you a hard time, don't "back up" a poster who is dumb enough to claim data plans are dirt cheap all over the world and or no one needs / wants the radio - this very thread is proof a lot of people miss it.

Hate to say it but I agree, I mean, I don't dislike it! It's not too bad but ....... it's not amazing either and 2 people posting very similar pics has me worried it's legit.
So no SD card? How much extra are they gonna sting us, like Apple do?
I don't need SUPER EXPENSIVE, HIGH END, LATEST MODEL FLASH RAM in 128gb, I need 32gb onboard my phone and 64 to 128gb of mid speed ram for my photos or movies - hence SD Card :/ (40$ for 64gb,...)
I bet the difference from 32 to 64 is more like $100 and 64 to 128? $100 more again :/

The Edge version looks great, though (Except for the back. The back looks awful). I'm just worried the Edge variant will cost much more, be in short supply, and have worse specs than the original.

I'm praying this not the real galaxy s6. Biggest disappointment if it is. Very amateurish. Samsung will go down as the stupidest company ever!

Yeah, the naming thing could get people thinking about the Note 4 Edge.
I just think that S6 Edge is actually visually appealing, so it'll catch a lot of attention, regardless of its name.

And FYI, it boots although I booted one I had permission to do so on. I left the other alone, same model. Definitely glass back, feels solid as heck, runs android 5.0.2., no more finger swipe, just press like iPhone/iPad. This thread has gotten a bit out of hand. My fault, my curiosity has led to craziness. Im going to let others do the work going forward. Also, this IS the s6 whether you like it or not albeit not final version. I confirmed by turning the 2nd unit I got my hands on obviously. Pictures have not done this phone justice, it's actually pretty nice. It's weird, people complain about Samsung's build quality and point at HTC and Apple as examples of solid build quality, Samsung takes cues from them and they get ripped? I guess you can't make everyone happy. I'm fine without removable battery but the SD card being gone does piss me off..... To each their own, I know people are passionate about what they want or need. Anyways..... Voila

What started this subthread was someone claiming online IP based radio is hte future and it is if you're on wifi or in the USA or Asia - but a lot of places do not hand out big amounts of data for nothing.

It's a huge waste of bandwidth (mobile / cellular bandwidth IS a limited thing, it's not like fibre) - if everyone streamed radio it would completely go to the ****ter for performance.
People should be keeping their media locally, it's inefficient to do otherwise.

I pay equivelant to $17 US per month for ONE GB of data, it's with a good provider and it's reliable.
1gb... ONE.
I use about 400mb per month.

That's absurd!! That's a ****load of money for not much data.
Ofcourse in your circumstance it would be wise to save data as much as you can.

But I don't agree with you about keeping media local, never stream 3G/4G etc.
Yes, in your case it makes sense, but a lot of places it doesn't.

I my case I pay 30$ a month for unlimited 4G, I have speeds around 50-100mbit anywhere I go (Copenhagen, Denmark) and there is no data throttling at all. So for people living in places like that it does make sense to stream.

Heck, I never even turn on wifi cuz it's so slow compared to LTE, lol.

In Korea they have even faster speeds and better coverage.. I've heard of people in Seoul getting 40 mbit LTE inside a METAL ELEVATOR!

Internet is the future man, I'm telling you... that also applies for radio
The data prices will come down eventually.. also where you live.

Ok, those pics actually do make it look a lot better. Maybe it's down to the angle?

BTW, how's the UI? Does it lag or stutter?

It does! It looks sexy. And i really want them to succeed again, they seem to be taking a lot of steps in the right direction lately. Dont want people to write them off - a la HTC.

You are right. They seem to be taking a lot of steps in the right direction and deserve credit.
So do you, inspite of your apprehensions you did give us a lot of info. Thanks a lot!
Overall did you seem to be satisfied though? With the build quality and especially the UI?

No lag, video might get posted by someone else, anything is possible. UI is classic Samsung garbage. Slightly different than Note 4. But buttery smooth.
