With the launch of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Edge at the start of this year’s MWC, Samsung seemed to be a much more mature smartphone manufacturer, having learned from the sins of the past. Finally making the choice to switch to metal, and promising not only amazing battery life but also a vastly improved software interface with an overall improved design, both the Galaxies look to be a remarkable pair of devices indeed. But before you jump to any conclusions, some faults with the device’s touch interface have appeared which could threaten all the positive image created by Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy S6 And Galaxy S6 Edge Appear To Suffer From Significant Hardware Flaw

According to a video straight out of Asia, Samsung might not have been paying that much significant attention to detail when it comes to its most recent flagship launches. While durable materials and an overall stable device were promised, if today’s evidence is to be considered then we could be looking at potential notoriety surrounding the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge. If you’ve taken a look at the video then you’ll know that both the devices appear to be suffering from a hardware flaw that limits the amount of touch inputs that can be entered from the edges and around the bezels. You can also take better look at it in the images below.

As can be seen above, when entering touch inputs from the edges of the device, your experience might not be as smooth as you’d be expecting initially. Since quite a lot of our smartphone use centers around swiping from the top and sides, if the issue is a widespread one then it can end up damaging Samsung’s already declining state in the smartphone industry. The company still has time to rectify the fault however, but how soon can it do it still remains to be seen. All eyes on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge launch later on. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated.
