Reminder: HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Pre-orders Now Live

It’s pre-order day for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and One M9. Well, at least on carriers not named Verizon. Big Red pre-orders for these phones won’t start up until April 1, so keep that in mind.

Regardless, each of these phones is now purchasable through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. You can also get them from many retail locations, such as Best Buy. And as a bonus, if you order the Galaxy S6 through Best Buy, you get a free wireless charger.  (more…)

Thursday Poll: Which Flagship are You Ordering? Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, or One M9?

Tomorrow, pre-orders go up for the all-new HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge. There is a lot of hype surrounding each device, so it is only natural that we would want to find out which way you are all leaning.

Pre-orders for each device will take place through numerous carriers and retailers (One M9 details, GS6 and GS6 Edge details), so getting your hands on these phones should not be too difficult. The only question is, which one should you get?

Samsung introduced a revamped TouchWiz experience and hardware design for the Galaxy S6 Edge, while also incorporating glass and metal into the standard Galaxy S6. As for the One M9, HTC stuck to its guns on the overall design, but threw in a 20MP rear-facing camera, updated Sense UI with custom themes, and the device still features HTC’s beloved BoomSound speakers. Needless to say, you can’t really go wrong with any choice.

So, which flagship are you ordering?
