In our review of the Samsung Galaxy S6, we described how the Korean giant, once the undisputable king of the Android domain, had finally recognised that top-tier smartphones need to be more than just pieces of plastic with the latest tech stuffed inside. There isn't much to be gained from only bumping up processor speeds and screen resolutions year-on-year; the overall experience of using a device has to be new and exciting enough to convince people to upgrade. The Galaxy S5 fell short not only because of its unappealing style, but also because of features such as a heart rate sensor that barely worked, a fingerprint reader that was too awkward to use, and software features that no one ever bothered to try discovering.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Summary

Samsung has rightly been accused of producing boring, generic phones in the past, but the Galaxy S6 Edge is a welcome departure. The metal frame, bold colours and gorgeous curved glass front together make this phone a style statement the likes of which we haven’t seen in years. Performance is absolutely phenomenal and the quality of photos you can take with this phone’s camera is just staggering. The benefits of the curved screen are largely cosmetic, and the few software tweaks aren’t enough to justify the price premium this phone commands over its flat twin, the Galaxy S6. Of course most of what you’re really paying for is the “wow” factor, and in that respect the Galaxy S6 Edge is unmatched.

  • Superb phone, already in love
    Bayaraa Koz (May 19, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    After 4 years of staying with Apple phones, I decided to try this phone even though it's an old model and I am already in love. I now see how much Apple limited my choices and preferences, shoved down whatever nonsense they had down my throat. I now say to hell with you Apple and going to try next Galaxy S models, starting with S7 edge and then S8. Just need to save the money heh

  • Product review: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
    Darshan Soni (Feb 13, 2016) on Amazon
    Starting with the design, I'll admit, the S6 Edge is ever so slightly less ergonomic to hold, as where the curved edges taper into the chassis is a little sharp, where the S6 is smoother and nicer to use in that respect.But this is a very light phone, and is primarily screen across the front. It manages the very clever trick of being able to fit a massive screen (5.1-inch) into a frame around the size of an iPhone 6, which should settle the need for many to decide between a compact handset and one with a larger display to play with.Now coming to the screen, the display is something to observe. It's definitely the next generation compared to the Galaxy Note Edge, for instance. That phone looked lopsided and the 'spine' screen looked like it was tacked on later.It's also very impressive that this phone manages to pack QHD resolution into the smaller display and bend it at the sides. Although you could ask what those curves are actually for beyond a headline grabber.Speaking about the operating system (TouchWiz), Samsung has definitely refined it with some nifty abilities to make use of the curved sides of the Edge.For instance, when the phone is flipped on its front the sides will glow a specific colour when one of your favourite contacts calls in, so you can see who it is without having to turn the Edge over.There are definitely some cons in Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge which are: 1) Extremely expensive, 2)battery life is a concern, 3)Touchwiz still needs work.VerdictIt's a bit crazy for a phone, but not too much and that screen looks amazingly next-gen.

  • Best android phone
    Navdeep (Sep 27, 2015) on Amazon
    An awesome looking phone with incredible specs.I have been using this phone for the past 4 months and it's been a delight using it.Screen is crisp,gaming experience is very good and the biggest asset of this phone is the camera.A minor downside is the battery that hardly survives a full day but since the phone supports fast charging one can well manage this small discomfort
