    My HTC Hero did that too, 6 years ago

    Edit: to expand on that, it looks like a jutting out "chin" to the phone. In this case it could be that the screen curves round the chin too, so the main app launchers you have on Android would be at a 30 degree angle. I predict a new phrase "chin launching" when you accidentally start apps while talking on the phone.

    Also guess it's not going to be very comfortable in your jeans.

    Yeah, I was going to comment on the HTC Hero jutting chin. I don't believe that is going to happen.

    I think it's just artistic, to suggest a bezel and curves.

    And you really need 128GB of external storage? But in hindsight if you've had problems with 2 previous Samsung phones I can't believe you went for the trinity and then moan at it.
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    Re: Samsung Galaxy Unpacked image teases curved Galaxy S6 design

    Never had any curruption issues with mSD cards on any S series phone I've had, only time I did have any such issues it was because of non-class 10 cards with cheap tat memory chips. So that might be your issue rather than the phone perhaps.

    Re: Samsung Galaxy Unpacked image teases curved Galaxy S6 design

    Will be interested in how this turns out, will be out a few months by the time my next upgrade comes around, so depending upon if theres a follow up to the LG G3, One (M8) and Xperia Z3 by then will likely be a strong likelyhood of this being my next phone (after S2 and S4). Needs to be a bit of a game changer after seeing how lacklustre the S5 was in comparison to the S4.

    Re: Samsung Galaxy Unpacked image teases curved Galaxy S6 design

    I don't care if it's curved. I don't care if it a solid case. I don't care about the camera.
    I only care if it's 64 bit or not (finally).

    Ass shaped phone so when you put it in your back pocket it doesn't dig into you?

    There are quite a lot of counterfeit MicroSD cards on the market which are known to cause issues like you're describing. Essentially, some random cheap card of random capacity (generally far smaller than advertised) is taken and the contents modified to make it appear to the device as a large card. These are sometimes called 'upgraded' cards.

    However since you can't just magic up free space, what actually happens is, when you fill the card past its real capacity (often before this because of non-sequential addressing) data starts getting dumped into oblivion. Sure, the files will still show up because the file table is intact, but the contents are never written to memory.

    For this reason it's a good idea to stick to reputable suppliers for cards. Even some which claim to be branded are fakes, so just picking out a brand name one is no guarantee.

    To check for stuff like this, a utility called h2testw_1.4 exists. It writes to the entire card then reads it back to check it's all working correctly.

    If you've had 3 phones end up with corrupted files on one card, there's one common element there - it's worth checking if it's actually the card. I expect the manufacturers of these cards either hope most users won't fill the actual memory of the card, or will blame something else e.g. the device it's in.
