I rounded up the most asked questions from the forums and answered them in a more succinct way.

Also dropped a lot of feelings on the phones on the podcast today. 
We have a Galaxy S6 and S6 edge in the house, and that means we spent the last two days in the forums answering all of your burning questions on the phones. As we expected, questions flooded in by the dozens, and before we knew it there were nine pages of questions and answers in a single Android Central Forums thread. That's pretty awesome, as it both answers your questions...

LG's skin is still to heavy. I'll be curious to see if they tone it down a bit with the G4.

The new Samsung Qi charger has a neat green glow when the phone is fully charged. It's blue while charging. Color is actually only noticeable when it's darker in the room.

+Joaquim Santos​ battery life was my concern. My G3 was getting hot... Uncomfortably hot. With the S6 not having the ability to change batteries, the wireless charger might decrease the life of the battery.

Took a few pictures with the GS6 as I walked to get some donuts today. In bright sun auto mode the phone does as good as predicted.

Alright folks, ask your burning questions here and I'll do my best to keep up and answer!
We've got both Galaxy S6 models, you've got questions. As we learned this morning, from Friday March 27 you'll be able to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. This is one of the year's biggest Android phone releases, and if you're in the market for a new handset then chances are you'll be paying close attention. We'll have a full review for you soon, but in the meantime we'...

We'll see if this fixes a little bit of the random lag I've seen. No immediate user-facing UI changes that I can see.

(Also, take this in mind when you read U.S. reviews that were done after ~24 hours without a big update like this.)
When T-Mobile customers receive their recently-purchased Galaxy S6 and S6 edges, they'll be in for an OTA update as soon as they start them up. A heftily-sized 177MB update is hitting both phones on T-Mobile, with a very generic changelog listed indicating that there are bug fixes, performance improvements and potential feature enhancements. The software makes the jump to build number...

+Jason Hamel Oh I'm sorry I wasn't aware that you've been using a Galaxy S6 and comparing to your time with the S5...

I've been doing that since I received it (well, them, I have two S6s) and I can only tell you what I see. The S6 software is improved, but its nothing to get excited about compared to other devices today. That's unfortunate, but it's true.

The hardware is much better, absolutely. And the camera is one of the best available right now. But the software is a big and important part of a phone, and it's still not great.

Top Pot sold donuts out of a cool Airstream style trailer in the parking lot at Mclendon's Hardware in Renton. Last time I went there it was gone 😞 I guess people buying fertilizer didn't buy enough donuts

Put down your pitchforks, nothing that interesting here. 23.5GB free of 32GB is pretty standard, and about what we see on the One M9.
Samsung chose to drop the SDcard slot from its latest flagship phones, but the bump in internal storage available on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge should help remedy the worries. As we all know though, the amount of storage you actually have access to in the end is smaller than the number on the box. On the 32GB models of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge — in our case T-Mobile versions — which...

And so it begins. Info on pricing and which storage options are from each carrier/retailer.
Orders for Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge begin March 27, and here is where you can get them. Samsung's newest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, pre-orders are beginning in the US on March 27. Following Samsung's announcement of availability, which starts in stores on April 10, carriers have begun releasing pricing details. If you are looking to get your...
