Samsung Galaxy S6 and the larger Galaxy S6 Edge have been around for only a week, yet reports concerning the first problems already appeared. According to these reports, both flagships have touchscreen sensitivity issues near the bezels.

Asia Today revealed a video that shows a touch input test ran on both handsets. The results of this test may be bad news for Samsung, as it appears that touch input is not recognized near the bezels. The problem seems worse for the Galaxy S6 than for the Galaxy S6 Edge and it does not seem to be software-related. While LG Electronics handsets do not have such a problem, Samsung users claim all their smartphones have it and in the end it appears to be a feature, not an issue.

Asia Today has just updated the article with an answer from Samsung that says "It is Samsung's user interface (UI) concept to provide accurate usability to prevent the input to the edge 1mm" so remains to see if those Galaxy S6 handsets with a larger non-responsive area are having real problems or not. We will keep you posted.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
