Samsung made many big changes for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge — not only to deliver brand new designs made from premium materials, but also to give adopters a better user experience. But has Samsung really scaled back its bloatware in TouchWiz?

According to the reports it has, but in reality, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge come with just as much bloatware as the Samsung devices that came before them. In fact, they have more pre-installed apps than the Galaxy Note 4.

Samsung’s smartphone sales may have dipped in recent months, but its new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are already off to an excellent start. Since their unveiling at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this month, more than 20 million handsets have been pre-ordered.

Samsung’s love affair with cheap, tacky plastic is on hold for its stunning new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

Unveiled today at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the new handsets pull out all the stops in an effort to reverse Samsung’s declining smartphone sales and mount a new challenge against Apple’s most popular iPhones to date.

They sport all-new designs made out of premium materials, and vastly improved software that promises a better user experience. But they aren’t without their own compromises.
