    It will be interesting to hear if the public really wants "the curve" in the up and coming Galaxy S6.

    Or would you rather have a more traditional look?

    Traditional, it's a gimmick, like the Galaxy Nexus curve, served no function.

    Nope. Then again I think I'm done with Samsung. Galaxy Nexus to s4, think it's about time to move on to another company. Hopefully Verizon gets another Sony phone, would love to have an Xperia device.

    I chose the first option simply because it said defiantly instead of definitely. :)

    That said, after seeing posts about @Ollie's experience with the Note Edge, I'd consider it for sure if I was in the market for a new device. I like new and different things and edge screens seem to be about the only thing kinda new and different Samsung is doing these days...

    I think they have gone over the edge, in innovation. ;)

    I've played around with the Note Edge, and I firmly believe that with the right software support, curved edges are not a gimmick. It's actually very useful for a variety of things. But ongoing software support from Samsung and from app developers is what will make or break it.

    A curved variant of the S6 would definitely get my attention. I'm curious to see how it differs from the Note Edge in form and function (if it differs at all).

    I'm curious to know, from those that throw the word "gimmick" around, what you would consider innovative?

    Pick the top OEMs and look at what they have done that is even close to innovative.

    Apple: They created the smartphone craze and short of TouchID they have always allowed other OEMs to lead the way and then copy them while trying to make the new stuff look like their creation. From the slew of features stolen from Android to their latest hardware design stolen from HTC.

    Samsung: Samsung brought Android to the masses. From high end phones to low tier phones they slayed everyone in sales until their sales started slumping recently. They are still the number one OEM in the world arena. Samsung brought in a lot of hardware specs that were initially mocked and then adopted. Octacore chips, Amoled displays, dual core chips that outperform Octacores, software that offers far more than other OEMs, 3G technologies, etc.

    HTC: Front facing dual speakers, unibody designs.

    Mororola: They used to have some of the best radios in the business, always "on" listening software.

    Xiaomi: Low cost copies of everyone else's designs.

    I'm hoping the Galaxy S8 will have a built in sub woofer.
