Samsung is just full of excuses. Considering that they don't give out quarterly sales numbers for smartphones or tablets, or even shipping numbers (because they were caught in an apparent lie by Lenovo, end of 2010), we have no way of knowing whether what Samsung is saying is true, as far as their excuses are concerned. The Edge is selling better than expected, or the 6 is selling worse than expected? We don't know. Considering the lack of truthfulness Samsung is traditionally credited with, as well as their general lawlessness as a corporation over the years, I don't really believe anything they say. Are these good phones? Well, the 6 is, and the Edge has had plenty of criticism. But it's the lack of reason why android buyers buy phones that's a major reason why sales aren't where Samsung wants them to be. But the lack of a removable battery and a memory card slot doesn't explain the drop in sales last year of the S5 from S4 levels. The iPhone 6 and 6+ explains that. Perhaps the S6 models are still suffering from that competition, as well as the lack of those features. Edge supplies are just a smokescreen.
