In case anyone is interested, I now have my 64Gb Edge in Emerald Green, and it looks amazing.

Coming from my old Galaxy S3 this is a massive improvement in every respect.  Running on 2Degrees, 4G is super-fast, and everything is working as expected.

The only downside at this stage, being that this is the SM-G9250 (Taiwan) model, is the lack of dev support for kernels/firmware.  Once the F or I variants are available in green, I'll probably flick this off and buy one, as battery life isn't brilliant with all the bloatware running, and root is irrevocable (in terms of Knox being tripped).

On another note, does anyone know what's up with the Unauthorised Actions Have Been Detected msg that has come up since I turned it on? I have googled it and it doesn't sound too impressive. i actually rang Samsung NZ this-morning who said they weren't aware of this issue.  BTW..loving my new Edge but this message just keeps coming back and is bloody annoying. Anyone....??

1. Install free "Package Disabler" from Google Play Store.

2. Launch this app, search and disable "Security Log Agent".

Nice. Where did you get this from? Ebay? Expansys? I am wanting to get a green one in 64GB as well.

Anyone experiencing the toggle button missing bug issue:

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Samsungs-Galaxy-S6-and-S6-edge-have-caught-a-bug-missing-toggles_id70474

It'd be extremely annoying if you had to factory it to fix the issue with no guarantee that the issue won't come back.

Interesting...the post seems to suggest the bug only affected users that have updated to 5.1

Might have to hold back getting it until there is a resolution

Hey, I got it from Expert Infortech: http://www.einfo.co.nz/samsung-galaxy-s6-edge-sm-g925-64gb-green-eta-mid-april.html

Paid a good deal less than what they're selling them for now too, due to locking my purchase in in April.

Great phone, and so long as you don't want LTE 700 or dev support as mentioned.

L700 Support should almost be top of the list of features to have

Sure. . If you live in Auckland or Wellington maybe.  2Degrees only just got LTE enabled in Dunedin, and it's only in the CBD.  I think having the freedom of colour choices and more realistic pricing over what our Telco's offer is well-worth not having L700.

 

 

 

As always, YMMV.

Huh? if you live in Auckland or Wellington or a main centre you are less likely to benefit from L700 especially in the short term, L700 is about 4g deployment outside of densely populated areas.
