If there's one part of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge that stands out, it's the camera. Let me show you why...
As the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge were launched at MWC last month, Samsung's JK Shin promised that the camera would outperform the units currently winning critical acclaim on the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. It was a direct challenge from Seoul to Cupertino. JK Shin was right, the camera on the Galaxy S6 is not just a match for the iPhone, but in almost every situation outperforms Apple's smartphone.

Samsung's marketing department will be happy to read everyone calling the S6 Edge a 'sold out smartphone'. That's "mission accomplished", even if the source is not particularly strong.
Samsung's marketing team get the headline that it needed to build on the momentum from the critic's strong reception to the Galaxy S6 family. Not only has the Galaxy S6 Edge sold out, but it is proving to be the more attractive handset, selling in an almost one to one ratio against the vanilla Galaxy S6 handset.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is now on sale. I've spent the last week with the handset to find out if the 'edge' is useful or useless. It's tending towards the latter, but it's worth pointing out that under the screen is one of the best Android devices on today's market.

Samsung's rush to bring out 'something new' lead to the S6 Edge variant. With awkward hardware, poor software, and now issues in manufacturing leading to a shortage compared to demand, Samsung's lust to be seen as innovative has backfired.
With the public availability of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge opening up tomorrow (alongside the vanilla Galaxy S6), news that the South Korean company is struggling to meet demand for the curved screen smartphone is a double-edged sword.

It's another step towards 'cloud first, mobile first' as Microsoft apps are bundled in Cyanogen's distro
The recently announced deal between Microsoft and Cyanogen to bundle Redmond's software with the alternative Android distribution from Palo Alto is a win for everyone concerned - Microsoft proves it can be as nimble as a start-up, Cyanogen build up its presence and respectability with one of the giants of software, and users can make the choice to keep or delete the applications and increased functionality on offer.

Google send out Android (and they like it), Samsung change it (and they like it), then the carriers change it (and they like it), and then the user is left with a  muddled vision and can't remove the bloatware.
Who knows what is best for your smartphone? I'd argue that the best person to judge a smartphone is its owner, but as the recent release of the Samsung Galaxy S6 in the US illustrates, manufacturers and carriers still believe that they know better than their customers.

With Android Lollipop's share of the platform passing 5% (for 5.0 and greater), and the release of flagship handsets from HTC, LG, and Samsung, the mental barrier of double-figures should be breached this summer.
Google has released the monthly update to the Android version adoption numbers on its Developer Dashboard, and the slow adoption of Lollipop continues. The good news is that the uptake has risen over the last quarter, and is expected to accelerate with the latest smartphone releases.

I want to say something less hipster than "Gonzo 2.0", but cooler than "bumming off the internet for a living"...
