    Hey all new here.
    Will i get used to this phone ?
    Had it for 7 hours, and struggling so far. Prevous phones were nexus5, 1+1, nexus 6p. This is my first samsung.
    Why is the back button on the right, can i change this?
    Second issue ive found is the favourites in messenger, phone app and edge favourites don't sync?
    I might be a little biased but i acutally think the nexus6p is quicker?

    Give it a little time. It's always difficult to change from one phone to another. Unfortunately the back button location cannot be changed and is one of the many idiosyncrasies of Samsung.

    I hope i get used to it. Im hating the home button. I now understand why so many manufacturers are ditching it, for starters its slower, and requires far more effort to navigate. Plus its just confusing swaping between the two types of buttons.

    I'm curious, you have a Nexus 6P, which is a relatively new phone. Why bother switching if you hate the phone already? Why do you need to get used to it? I'd switch only if the new phone did stuff the other one didn't or did it in a way I prefer..and I LOVED IT. Makes no sense to me to force yourself to get used to something like a phone when there are already options you've been using that you prefer.

    Accidently destroyed it in the rear door of the car. I loved the 6p. But i wanted to try a samsung. I don't like to knock something until ive tried it. Plus i have kids so the extra water protection helps. The olther issue im finding with the edge, is litterly very sensitve, its hard to hold it watching a movie in bed, as the bezzels are so thin, you end up pressing the back button a lot.
