Galaxy S6 and S6 edge

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.

That's pretty awesome, as it both answers your questions specifically and also gives us a feel for what you all want to know about these phones going forward.

32GB Galaxy S6 and S6 edge have just over 23GB storage free

187

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 are the base models of each, you'll find about 23.5GB available on first boot. That's after signing into a Google account and updating all of the pre-installed apps from the Play Store, which presumably anyone who opens up a new Galaxy S6 will do.

Farewell, bloops and whistles: Annoying TouchWiz sounds are no more on the Galaxy S6

89

Samsung has finally done away with two of our pet hates in its TouchWiz UI.

If you've ever used a Samsung Galaxy phone — or even sat near anyone else using one — you'll be familiar with the manufacturer's widely derided default sound effects. Since the Galaxy S3, each button press or icon tap has been punctuated by an obnoxious "bloop" — supposedly a water droplet sound — a remnant of the GS3's whole "inspired by nature" thing. Same deal with the default notification sound, the unmistakeable Samsung whistle that accompanies each email, text and social alert out of the box.
