Samsung Galaxy S6 Launch Conference can be considered a success according to the feedback of the specialized press. Unfortunately, it seems that the phone is not perfect.
Although they badly needed a resounding success in the market, Samsung might have made a mistake when creating the new Galaxy S6. In theory, the small problems can be solved by software updates, but it seems it will not be the case for the issue detailed in the video below.
Many publications in South Korea, including G for Games, confirmed a hardware defect linked to the touch panel that was used in the new flagship from Samsung. Apparently, the phone does not processes the edge touches that you make with your finger. Typically, most of your interaction with any smartphone is to the middle of the screen, but in many contexts, it is frustrating that you can not interact with interface elements in the edge of the screen, as it was designed to.
To better understand what the problem is about, someone has created a short video, which you can find below. In this video, the phone is running an application which is designed to draw black lines on the touch screen. As you can see, no matter how aggressive a person strives to draw the lines on the phone’s edge, they do not appear in that area. For a reason not very clear, the problem tends to affect more Galaxy S6 devices, rather than Galaxy S6 Edge.
Samsung has not made any comments on this subject yet, but it should not take very long until we see an official answer.
