The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is an innovative smartphone that was recently announced at MWC 2015. The handset is a twin of the Galaxy S6, but brings innovation to it’s left and right edges. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is a powerful smartphone with a unique design.
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge earns a 9.3 rating out of 10 based on the LaserPost Review Guidelines. The Galaxy S6 Edge is innovative and unique, but may come with a few concerns.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has a 5.1 inch QHD display which sits on the front of the device. The display provides an amazing viewing experience. The front of the Galaxy S6 Edge also features a 5 megapixel camera for selfies and video calls. The front facing camera does a good job when in use. Samsung includes a physical home button as well as two touch buttons at the bottom of the device’s front. The home button hides a much improved fingerprint scanner. Recent Apps and back touch buttons are flanking the home button.
The rear of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge holds a 16 megapixel camera which provides detailed image and video quality. A flash and heart rate monitor are also next to the rear facing camera.
The Galaxy S6 Edge is constructed with Gorilla Glass on it’s front and back providing a premium feel. The handset’s internals are also high quality. The Galaxy S6 Edge comes with 3GB of RAM, Exynos 7 Series chipset, and a non removable 2600mAh battery. The smartphone’s internal storage starts at 32GB and ends at 128GB. Expandable storage is not available.
The most interesting part of the Galaxy S6 Edge would be the display curves found on the left and right side of the device. The edges can be used for looking up the time, viewing information on tickers, and more. The curved display does create some concerns. The curved display is durable, but scratches might be possible.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is the same smartphone as the Galaxy S6. Both devices have the same specifcations, but the Galaxy S6 Edge has a little more battery power and also includes the curved display. The consumer must chose between an innovative feature or an excellent smartphone that lacks the unique curved display.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is an excellent smartphone, but may take some damage to it’s most unique feature. The curves could have had a few more features, but Samsung is moving in the right direction to separate itself from others in the smartphone market. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is an exciting smartphone that should appeal to those willing to try something new.
