    Since we have such an amazing community of Android fans, we thought it would be useful to create a list of the 12 most Frequently Asked Questions we could think of regarding the Samsung Galaxy S6 and/or Galaxy S6 Edge. We culled some data and came up with the following 12 questions. Obviously, there could be some additional questions that we didn't think of, so feel free to post them in this thread.

    Below we shared the questions as well as individual links to the questions. We purposefully didn't answer them, because we felt it would be more beneficial for our fellow members who own either of these devices to share their more experienced perspective. Please, if you have a Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge (or have spent time with one), click on each of these threads below and answer the question with your point of view. Thanks!

    I was very Disappointed Holding the S6 Edge. Nothing like the Note Edge with its edge having Usability.

    My question is.. Why did they make the s6 edge with less functionality than the note edge?? I would've thought they would've built and added in to it.. Especially with both sides now "edged"... I don't get it..

    That was my thought till i held it. S6 edge is Slim. Dont want to say it but seems gimmicky. The Note Edge's Edge Screen has its own use. You can do this with it. Not the S6 Edge. It looks nice but Since there is no functional difference it think it becomes a liability protecting it. I was hoping it was like the Note Edge but on both Sides. Lets see what the Note 5 Brings. I hear it will be awesome.

    That's interesting.. I didn't know that the Edge screen was just a wrap around screen with no functionality. That certainly changes my plan to buy one...

    There is some functionality to it, but nothing on the level of the Note Edge. Most reviews that I've read of the S6 Edge say it looks really cool, but that they recommend going with the standard S6 given the price difference and minimal functionality of the curved edges on the S6 Edge.

    That's carrier dependent. Most carriers lock the bootloader. International variants typically have unlocked bootloaders.

    I am expecting Samsung to lock the bootloader on the 6 and especially the edge.

    As far as edge functionality I saw a review that showed it featured the alarm clock, sports ticker, and some of the same features I saw on the note edge. I don't own either so can not say for sure they have all the same features.
