#MobileInsider - Callout! Would you like to review the new Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 edge?

Answered

The release of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge were greatly anticipated by many – but what we were greatly anticipating was getting to share them with you!

 

And now, finally, we can.

We are now looking for Mobile Insiders to review this amazing new handset.

 

“What is a Mobile Insider?”

 

 

The Mobile Insider team are Telstra customers that are selected to be part of a social review team. If you’re selected you will trial new devices free of charge, provide honest opinions on them and you get to keep the products afterwards. If you want to know more, you can go here. 

 

Basically, we’re looking for two engaged digital community members to provide us with an in-depth review of the handset over a period of two weeks, here on CrowdSupport and on social media.

 

“What will increase my chances of getting picked?”

 

Being a CrowdSupport member will increase your chances.

 

We’ll also note if you have integrated Klout with your CrowdSupport profile.

 

Lastly we’ll review how well you do at the challenge set out below.

 

“How do I register my interest?”

 

Post below responding to this challenge:

 

In less than 100 characters (characters, NOT words!) review your current phone without mentioning the brand, the model and keeping it G rated. Include your twitter handle if you have one.

 

I've provided examples below. I used this format so you could get a rough idea of the character count expected, but your posts should just be text.

Please note, we may tweet some runner-up's entries and tag them with #MobileInsider. If you’d prefer that didn’t happen with your entry that’s cool, just let us know in your post. 

 

EDIT: This S6 is now available to all just here and S6 Edge here

The finalists for this round of Mobile Insiders have now been notified. 

 

The review will begin in the next couple of days or so over here. Please feel free to post on this thread asking the reviewers what you would like them to keep in mind when they're unboxing. 

 

If you weren't chosen this time, take heart! There are future opportunities to become a part of the Mobile Insider team. 

 

Remember that interacting with the Mobile Insiders as they review the product will stand you in good stead for consideration to be a part of future rounds. Asking questions, leaving encouraging comments and setting out challenges for the reviewer may also lead to some fun surprises. 

 

Thanks for participating everyone!

I was after a big, fast phone, and this was the biggest, fastest one available, a premium handset.

Large high-res screen, decent batterly life, lack of app store options. Mid-weight and solid, but not sleek.

Being waterproof, my phone can survive being dropped in the toilet.  But being so slow, it may as well stay there. @yadekul

dying in my bed many years from now, I am willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell that they may take my three year old Jailbroken four inch phone but they’ll never take my chance for a free phone

I need something smaller than my note 3 because it hurts when I drop it on my head whilst using it laying in bed. At least a curved edge wouldn't hurt as much!!

My current phone doesn't work properly, the apps are jumpy, the touch screen it's jumpy, I might be going back to an dumb phone til my contact is up. A new Samsung S6 wild be nice, but probably dreaming. I never get picked.

My phone although large, its frame rate is very slow, has only 1 speaker on the back making it bad for movie streaming and extremely fragile display. @jackelliott128

Re: #MobileInsider - Callout! Would you like to review the new Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 edge?

This is a flagship phone from last year, and it was out to compete with galaxy S5, the htc one and others. So what does this phone bring. This is a phone with the highest resoloution of any phone, at a resoloution 2560x1440 or 2K. With that said, the phone's QHD display does NOT affect the performance, nor the batterie life. These are 2 of the most important thing to consider when buying a new smart phone. The phone has a unique design with the button placement on the back...

 

please let me review the galaxy S6 edge :~)

Evolutionary premium design, amazing camera, all-day battery. Huge size could be a downer for some.

Ultra HD screen, it's good if you know what I mean. Quad Core, just as fast as your foot to the floor. Slim, ergonomic, and battery that last all day.
