After a not-so-good customer response for Galaxy S5, Samsung has made its presence felt in hearts of android phone users with their latest and by far the most successful, Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Released in early 2015, Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are especially designed by keeping in view the current trends because when it comes to style, these handsets beat all the previous models.
The world’s first dual curved display screen is one-of-a-kind and attractive design for people who like to making a style statement with their smartphones. The brand new box of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge contains:
- The handset
- Portable charger
- USB cable
This phone is similar to S6 in many aspects but if you are wondering what to look forward for when buying this particular and stylish handset, then take a look below at features based review:
Design and Display
It has a 5.1 inch display screen which is ideal for people who are looking for not-too-big kind of smartphones. Screen resolution is also outstanding which, combined with curved edges, gives a very attractive look.
While the front of this handset is curved from the edges, the back side is designed flat to give the screen a wider look. This design also enables you to grip the phone comfortably.
According to Samsung, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge provides a longer lasting battery as compared to S6. Its battery, being bigger than S6, lasts up to 12 hours with continuous web browsing via Wi-Fi. The best thing about this phone is that you can charge it from 1% to 100% in less than 2 hours. Though the battery is only 2% bigger than galaxy S, it is surely an attractive feature for users who are upgrading from S5 or any other previous model.
3D gaming is likely to drop your phone’s battery faster than browsing like any other phone but approximately 10% lesser as compared to the previous Galaxy models.
Like other Samsung phones, S6 edge also comes with an ultra-power saving mode which may help your single battery charge last for weeks.
The 16 mega pixel primary camera with auto-focus and image stabilization along with LED flash is a gift for photography lovers. With Samsung claiming the snap time to be as fast as 0.7 seconds, you can capture anything and everything in the blink of an eye. The secondary camera of S6 Edge being 5 MP is also a blessing especially for people who love group selfies because it comes with a 120 degree wide-angle lens. Other camera features include:
- Face detection
- Touch focus
- Auto HDR
Wireless charging has become today’s must-have feature in smartphones and therefore, Samsung has designed galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with wireless charging options. The best thing about S6 Edge is that you do not need any special or particular wireless charging pad to charge your phone, and you can always use those regular pads available at cafes and restaurants easily.
Other noticeable features of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge include:
- Android OS v5.0.2 Lollipop
- Corning gorilla glass 4
- 3 GB RAM
- 32, 64 and 128 GB internal storage
- Up to 50 hours music play
- Multi touch screen
- Finger print sensor
Amazing features of S6 Edge come for a price which may not be very appealing for budget phone users. This is a high-end smartphone but worth it if you are willing to spend generously for a new phone.
Absence of a memory slot can also discourage some users. Especially, if you are used to storing huge amount of pictures or work related documents on phone, fixed storage can be a turn off.
