Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be officially available on April 10, but T-Mobile customers have already begun receiving them. But many aren’t as happy as you might expect them to be.
It seems there’s a fairly large number of handsets affected — especially when you consider T-Mobile is the only carrier to have sent out these devices so far. Some users report on social media the issues with the comunity.
On Reddit, Drayzen reports:
Have a 32GB Edge, noticed hairline scratches that are straight near the bottom of the device by the homebutton, Additionally, my home button appears to have markings on it, like it had been used or scratched or something.
Some suggest that what are perceived to be tiny scratches are actually “micro fractures” that occur as a result of thecurved glass. But it seems unlikely Samsung would deliver glass with imperfections intentionally. After all, the company is famous for its display technology, which is widely considered some of the best in the mobile industry.
This seems to be a pretty widespread problem, reports gryklin. I went to the store, and the S6 Edge they had there had the same issue, but it can’t be ruled out it’s not from the same batch and they just got the phones a little earlier.
Those who have the problem and contacted T-Mobile received immediately a replacement device, but unfortunately, many of those have arrived with similar issues.
It’s important to note that while there are many of complaints floating around about the S6 Edge, plenty of other users have received perfectly good handsets.
