For edge owners, how's the curved screen shaping up for watching videos - my impression is that it could give a distracting effect along each of the curved edges for extended viewing? How's your experience?

One thing I only noticed last night and I did not even know this was a feature is the fast charge. I assume this is only when using the supplied charger. Wonder if it lessens the life of the battery at all.

I am more than happy with battery life and would only be a moderate user and by the time I hit the sack I still have about 40% left.

Still impressed with mine but I guess that will wear off in time.

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Yes 700 , 1800 , 2600 all the LTE bands used in NZ

Here in Takapuna I get 4G+ CA (carrier aggregation) CAT6 off 1800 and 2600 off Barry's point Road site

I thought the Apple fanboys were all P&W about the S6 being 'inspired' by the iPhone 6 until I went into a local retailer and saw them side by side. From a distance it's only the home button that differentiates them to my old eyes. That's not to say that the S6 is not in serious contention for my next phone but I want to be confident in how much of the Samsung bloat can be removed andto what level Touchwiz can be suppressed. Having been a long term HTC fan and with them loading more and more of their features onto the Play Store I'm wondering if I can have the best of both worlds. Almost Sense 7 toys on an S6 if that is possible.

I was in Auckland this week and had a coffee with JohnR... The Samsung S6 Edge is the first Galaxy series device I actually thought was a good looking device. Very nice.

Agreed, yesterday was grabbing a Semble SIM and had a look at one in the VF shop. I asked about the 128G version but after the chicklet told me just tp put an SD card in it, I didnt purse that conversation any further.

First time I have seen iPhone 6 as well. Edge kills it for looks and feel.

It is indeed a fine looking thing but I still struggle to see the curved edge's utility. However, people probably said something similar when the wheel was invented.

What shop was this and did you point out it does not have a micro SD slot?
