Possible distortion on images taken with S6 Edge

So, I finally had the chance to play with an Edge too. My main concern, among others is something that I have never read before (which keeps me hopeful that it was the problem with the store’s unit): There was very prominent distortion on the sides of photos that it took, with objects dimension changing as they do for example in Street View or Photospheres. It was so obvious that it was dizzying, and I tried to capture it. Take a look here: http://imgur.com/a/4tSdT Focus on the cooling pad box. In the first picture it’s on the right side of the image, in the second it’s at the center and on the third it’s on the left. Notice the change of the box dimensions? Ok, I know that cameras generally do that, or that the angle isn’t the perfect that could be, but it really was as if the phone had a fisheye lens permanently attached to it!Thoughts? Did anybody notice something similar? Or am I too nitpicky and just noticed something that was there in all phones? Sponsored News Happy Harvest Festival 2015

[Meta] We’re looking for volunteer AMA coordinators!

Last week we sought applications for a writing position. Those applications are still under review, but we’re almost done!This week, we’re seeking volunteers to help find, schedule, and assist with the running of AMAs (Ask Me Anythings – see /r/iama for examples). We’ve done a few AMAs here, most notably with One Plus, a few developers here and there (such as the Xposed dev), and other impromptu AMAs from users with new devices, but we’re seeking to expand the diversity of the AMAs we host by recruiting AMA coordinators.As an AMA coordinator for /r/Android, you’ll be contacting people who you think the /r/android subscribers would be interested in. Eventually, we hope that people will come to /r/android seeking to do an AMA on their own. But the first step is to reach out on our part.What you will be doing:We’re looking for coordinators to do the following:Contact industry persons to request them to do an AMA here.Along with the other AMA coordinators (we haven’t yet decided how many to recruit), schedule a date/time for these to be posted.Keep in contact with the person to know of any changes in the schedule, and potentially prepare them for the AMA by asking them to provide answers to questions they would anticipate.Assist the person doing the AMA with using reddit, as many people are not familiar with how to navigate this site.About the position:This is strictly a voluntary position. You will be added to the moderator list, but you won’t have any permissions as you won’t actually be doing any moderating. You will be given special flair to indicate that you’re an AMA coordinator.We can’t make any guarantees about how becoming an AMA coordinator will help you, but I personally think it’s a good opportunity to build networking skills.How to apply:Send an e-mail to anonlorenipsem@gmail.com with the following information:1) Your reddit username. (You don’t have to use an existing reddit account for this, but if you do create a new account please send me a PM with the e-mail you’re messaging us from so we can verify it’s you.)2) Your location/time-zone. (Just so we know when you’re available if we need to contact you if you’re selected as a coordinator.)3) A little bit about you. How long have you been interested in the Android tech scene? What was your first Android device, and what device(s) do you currently use? Any other details that you feel paints a clear picture of yourself would be nice.4) Your experience, if any. What can you show us that demonstrates your ability to network? Sponsored News Happy Harvest Festival 2015
