Recent reports claim the handsets face touch sensitivity issues near the screen edges, more prominent on the Samsung Galaxy S6.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
