Back when Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, consumers quickly edited an image of the Emerald Green Galaxy S6 Edge to include a photo of the Hulk.

At that time, Samsung Mobile global marketing lead, Lee Young-hee, suggested that they might offer an Avengers Edition of the phone assuming they could strike a deal with Marvel to include themed wallpapers and such. Now Samsung Electronics Vice President of Design for Samsung Mobile Lee Min-hyuk is saying that fans will be able to enjoy cases based on each character in the upcoming Avengers movie.

Amazon Prime Music radio stations coming to Android Prime Music app

Amazon_Prime_Music_logoAmazon’s Prime Music service offers a great radio station feature, but unfortunately, it hasn’t been available in the Android app. Compared to other apps like Google’s own All Access and things like Milk Music, Pandora, or Spotify, that puts Prime Music at a serious disadvantage if your Android phone is your primary music streaming device.

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 sales off to a blistering start; T-Mobile claims their Galaxy S6 sales have nearly doubled their total sales of the Galaxy S5

s6

If T-Mobile’s sales are indicative of how the other carriers are faring, the little traction and sales Samsung may have lost last year with their Galaxy S5 are now nothing to worry about considering the numbers their new Galaxy S6 is putting up. According to T-Mobile, sales of the Galaxy S6 have already nearly doubled the total sales of the previous S5. Consumers have wanted Samsung to change things up a bit as they viewed the S4 and S5 as minor iterations rather than a new device. With the new S6, Samsung decided to finally change things up a bit with a revamped look and finally parted with their plastic materials and opted for a more “premium” look/feel. The reviews of the S6 have bode very well for Samsung and it seems nothing will slow this train down.

What do you guys think of the S6? I know not everyone is on board with Samsung’s decision to go with glass and removing expandable storage alongside the removable battery (including myself), but it is refreshing to see Samsung listening to it’s critics and changing things up a bit.
