    Does the shape of the Galaxy S6 Edge create "mistakes" and "mis-touches"? Because it wraps around, do the edges cause problems with accidental taps and touches?

    It absolutely would for me. My fat fingers have issues with thin bezels now. Don't need/want no bezel.

    I recall reading that the phone knows the difference when held, tapped or swiped.

    I did not have any issues of that when I was playing with it in the store. But interested in seeing real world everyday use as 10 mins in the store vs everyday use is different in some issues may not have been encountered during the 10 mins I played with it.

    If it is the same technology as my Note Edge then this is not something you would have to worry about.

    I've got the worst big finger problem- have NO problem with use of the EDGE, in fact, putting most often used icons on the edge makes all more convenient-can continue doing screen related stuff while on phone call, etc. By far, EDGE is easiest cell to use ever.

    Also, as demonstation of my finger size, I've used BBKD (Big Buttons Keyboard Deluxe) which solves my problem & it's really huge on edge. Having built-in S-Pen also solves f finger issue.

    Since I got the s6 edge on Friday I have not had any issues. There is one area where you swipe to access the edge info and it has no bearing on how I how the phone to talk or text.

    That's pretty cool. Even though the S6 Edge has less functionality than the Note Edge that I have it makes sense that the activation area on the S6 Edge is smaller.

    Thanks cr6 I got the 128GB version so I'm hoping it will be somewhat future proof.
