After rumors about the S6 build quality, Samsung has issued a statement complete with a video detailing its own bending test. The company claims that the SquareTrade test does not indicate typical usage scenarios and is also not indicative of the phone's face-down rigidity.
In the Samsung video, which opens up with a quick disclaimer, that it's not inspired by sadistic desires, the complete bend test routine is shown on both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. A three point rig is set up with the appropriate software to measure the applied force.
To put an everyday meaning into the numbers a set of 5 pencils is subjected to the same test and reaches a breaking point just shy of the 80lbf (108Nm) mark. Then the Galaxy S6 takes the stage and survives a slightly larger force just fine, returning to its original shape. The Galaxy S6 edge fares equally well, both face down and up.
Samsung's latest television commercial for the Samsung Galaxy S6 is all about the wireless charging. Well, that is unless you're a fan of British singer Rita Oro, who saunters into the commercial carrying her brand new Galaxy S6. Obviously concerned by the dwindling amount of battery life on her spanking new handset, she plops it onto the wireless charging pad.
The small print at the bottom of the ad tells us that the average time to recharge from 0% to 100% wirelessly is 180 minutes, or 3 hours. Oro must have spent a few hours at the studio because the ad shows the battery progressively filling up with energy until it reaches 100% at the end of the ad. Watch the video Below!

We already posted first Exclusive Teaser of the Lexus Hoverboard, which the company's claims it's the World's first ridable hoverboard. Today, Lexus published the 2nd Teaser showing its hover board "floating on air", giving us a closer look at it.
This "Back to the future" Hoverboard is using a very complicated superconductive technology. The team is using magnetic levitation with liquid nitrogen-cooled superconductors and permanent magnets to give the hoverboard frictionless movement of a kind that had been thought impossible.
Lexus is said to officially announce this hoverboard later this year and we are waiting on fire for it. Check out the two mind-blowing Teasers below.
In the last few weeks, LG made it clear that it's going to announce its next flagship smartphone LG G4 on April 28th, while also revealing some of the handset's features.
The LG G4 will feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS display. However, LG mentioned that this is a new IPS panel, one that's brighter, while offering a wider color range. That's what LG is also telling us in its first G4 official teaser video, which was released a few hours ago.
The teaser video includes the G4 itself, though it's showing the device in a way that makes it impossible for us to properly study it. Anyway, from what we're seeing thus far, these leaked G4 images seem to be spot on. Check the Teaser Video below!
Surprisingly, T-Mobile's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925T) got an Over-the-air (OTA) update to the recently released Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Google published the Android 5.1.1 factory image only a week ago, this could be the fastest OTA update for Samsung in the records so far!
Android 5.1.1 Update
The Update was posted in XDA forums by a member who got the update and installed it on his device, only to find out its the Android build 5.1.1. After the update the device feels a lot faster and snappier as the member described. The update hasn't rolled-out to any other Galaxy S6 Edge variant yet.
This Firmware build was only a 2 days ago (April,28th 2015), this means this might be a test release. The same update will also come to the Samsung Galaxy S6 too, there is no ETA yet but it looks like it won't take long. The Update also carry the fix for the Memory Leak bug that was reported before to Google.
Samsung Guest Mode
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Lollipop 5.1.1 update enables the "Guest Mode" for the device. This feature will allow any of your friends or family members to use your phone without access to your personal files and social accounts (Facebook, Google, Twitter.. etc). This is a new major feature that was added to the Lollipop firmware, we hope it will be available to all other Lollipop-running Samsung devices very soon.
The XDA member also uploaded a video showing his Galaxy S6 edge booting up with the kernel version and Android version 5.1.1 appearing, which confirms this is a legitimate build. We will upload the official Galaxy S6 Edge 5.1.1 Lollipop Firmware in our YouFirmware section Here. The Video showing te update is below!
