You are a full weekend in. You have had time to familiarize yourself. You watched our tips and tricks videos. You are becoming one with your new smartphone, that being an HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6, or Galaxy S6 Edge. What do you love about it?
I know it seems early in the relationship to be asking such personal questions, but come on, everyone has first impressions after a first date. We want to know yours. After all, there has to be something you love or else you probably already returned it and re-activated your PhoneMatch.com profile.
Are you loving the display in the Galaxy S6? Maybe it’s the camera? How is the Edge treating your hand? Band-aids on it yet? Do you love the 2013 design of your HTC One
M7 M8 M9? I kid, I kid. Seriously, though, we would love to hear those first impressions.
I didn’t even realize this until 2 minutes ago, but the flash and heart rate monitor on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge has a clear sticker over it. Look closely, yours probably does too, you just didn’t see it. Both my S6 and S6 Edge had them and I didn’t even notice because the stickers are so perfectly cut and fit to the little glass covering.
Most stickers on things like the camera or edges of a phone almost always show themselves depending on the angle, but this little guy might go unnoticed unless someone pointed it out. So, we are doing that right now. Remove that thing! (more…)
The Galaxy S6 Edge from Samsung, a device launched side by side to the regular Galaxy S6, is available in the US on all major carriers starting today. We have had the phone in our possession for a week now, and with that in mind, are confident that we have a solid answer for whether or not you should buy this over the other Galaxy S6.
Now, please be aware that this review will be significantly shorter than Kellen’s Galaxy S6 review, as both phones are nearly identical, with the exception of the Galaxy S6 Edge’s slightly bigger battery and dual-rounded edge display. Be sure to check our official Galaxy S6 Review for further detail into TouchWiz, performance, wireless charging, the awesome fingerprint sensor, and other important topics.
Without further ado, here is our Galaxy S6 Edge review. (more…)
Verizon might not have been first to launch Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE), but they are ready to talk about how awesome they think their version of the service is, especially with it being nationwide since late last year, while other carriers are still slowly rolling out on a market-by-market basis.

I don’t know that I’ve ever had that tingling sensation in my toes before opening up a new phone, like I may have before jumping off a cliff, but I guess it’s possible. And not that I’ve jumped off a cliff before, but imagining it already has my little toesies feeling funny.
A number of you have expressed interest in purchasing an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6, even though Samsung hasn’t officially announced one for the US. I can’t say I blame you for wanting the carrier-removed variant, as it doesn’t contain (as much) bloatware and can be taken to any of your favorite GSM carriers without first needing someone to unlock it. These also tend to be the versions that get the first wave of updates as they are pushed out by Samsung. Unlocked phones are awesome. (more…)
April 10 is here! Did you order your Apple Watch yet? Errr, that’s not what we care about. What is happening today….oh yeah! Star Wars is now available digitally! No…well, that’s awesome news, but that’s not what we care about either at this moment. Ahh yes, it’s Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and HTC One M9 day! Did you get/order yours?
Below, we have links for all and to each carrier, in case you can’t figure out how to use Google Search.
If you need more info, well, we have that too. Our Galaxy S6 Review is out. That’s probably a must read. Our One M9 review will be here next week. We also have who knows how many videos of each phone over at our YouTube channel. Go watch them. Here is a pricing breakdown of the Galaxy S6s. Fun stuff. (more…)
According to Samsung’s firmware website, the Sprint variant of the Galaxy Note 3 is receiving its Lollipop update, labeled as version PVPUEOC5. Inside, Android 5.0 is the OS of choice, not to be mistaken with Android 5.0.2 or Android 5.1. This is apparently pure Android 5.0. (more…)
