Bought Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 64 GB yesterday.

MRP- 56300/-
Offer- 3% off
Dealer offer- 2000 cashback + 500 off
Exhange value of Note 2- 9500/-
Final cost- 42,500/- INR

First impressions-
* Amazing display
* Edge effect is significant
* Edge notifications are pretty darn thing
* Android 5.0.2 out of the box
* Phone is FAST !
* Super camera, both back & front

Bought a transparent case as the camera protrudes out of the body making it first point of contact when kept on the back.

Yes, dad's 2007 Innova has no BT/AUX in the stock system and my FM transmitter is dead.
Do you have FM transmitter in your phone? Most phone comes with FM receiver. Which phone is that? Otherwise easier way is buy FM transmitter like this one. Does pretty good job.

I've got two android phones I want to dump. A Motorola Atrix 2 and a Xolo Intel powered X900. The Motorola is a fully functional phone. Except for some surface blemishes, it is scratch free. The Xolo has a problem with catching cellular data. What would be a decent selling price for these two phones?

That's a pretty cool deal, did you get it from a Samsung Store?

I got it from Reliance DigiXpress. The competition was between iPhone6 and S6 Edge. But Edge won hands down for the stunning display.

Ok I didn't know that. I though it was a wifi antenna which can work two ways.

I've a redmi note 4g BTW.

Yes, I have a simpler version of the product which can play music from phone/iPod only.

Such a good deal..!! I fail to understand if this is the case why people continue to buy mobiles from eCommerce sites. I don't see any discount for this phone in these sites.

Does Samsung India honour warranty for its phones bought outside India? The S6 is selling for about a 10K less in the ME (Approx 30K). I think that is a steal for a phone that was launched a couple of months ago.

ps: After the S3, I had vowed not to buy a Samsung again, but the camera in the S6 is tempting me. And I am hearing that Touchwiz has been trimmed down.

My Note 2 was 3 years old. 8500 is a decent price IMO.

I picked a note 4. I find EDGE's design primitive.. The ergonomics are bad making the usual operations tricky.

Note 4 is great too. But can you elaborate your observations of Edge?

I assume that you are looking at note 4 edge.
I'm right handed and i'm used to handling the phones with one hand. While trying out Edge, i was often finding myself activating the edge panel while reaching out to left top or notifications. And i think Edge is more broader affecting the ergonomics further. On the other side, note 4 was pretty handy to operate. And i would say most of the Edge features like lock screen notifications are now available with Lollipop update in note 4. This further reduces the utility value of having edge panel (a key advantage for which i would have picked one myself)

IMO, Edge is just an aesthetic feature if you like to go far. Else Note 4 does everything + with lesser effort.

Spot on. I had a white note 4 which i had used for 6 months. Sold it and got a note edge. As they say a note user can only stay with a note phone. Thats the reason why i didnt get an s6 edge. But on using note edge my experience was downright horrible. Poor ergonomics. Worse battery life and poor touch response compared to note 4. So 10 days later i sold it and returned back to note 4.
