Report: mobile networks love Galaxy S6 Edge design, ‘better than iPhone 6’

Report: mobile networks love Galaxy S6 Edge design, ‘better than iPhone 6’It’s now widely accepted that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will launch on Sunday with not one but two Edge displays, but it remains to be seen how much consumer enthusiasm there’ll be for such an unorthodox device.

Interestingly, network peeps who’ve had a sneak preview are reportedly rather taken with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge’s design, suggesting it’s even sexier than the ultra-popular iPhone 6.

That’s the story over on The Korea Herald, where we’re told Samsung has been showing off the Galaxy S6 Edge behind closed doors, in the final days before its Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 launch.

The reaction to both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge has been largely positive, we're told, but it’s the latter that’s really blowing people away.

“Some executives said the new phones were the best of the best among Samsung-made phones,” reveals “a source close to the matter”.

The anonymous chap adds: “They said the Edge was better than Apple’s iPhone 6 in terms of design.”

Of course, as the article acknowledges, network enthusiasm won’t necessarily translate to sales. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge price will of course be crucial, and we’ve been told before it’ll start at €849 (circa £625).

Again, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge launch this Sunday. In the meantime, check out Five things you should know about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

Yes, because mobile networks have taste. They like that Samsung devices give them, relatively speaking, more profit, and that they can put their cr*p branding on them...
If they cared about design - where are the networks in Europe that sell the BB Passport?
Etc etc....
Also: fact: register your 'interest' in an upcoming device on a network, and you're counted as a
'pre-order' in some statistics.
