Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Review
Stylish, Sophisticated and A perfect Competition for its High end competitors.
Over the years, Samsung has emerged as one of the biggest competitions for the universal Gizmo giant ‘APPLE’. Samsung has constructed its own reliable dedicated audience in the Indian subcontinent and around. The South Korean biggie is leaving no stone unturned to capture the major part of Gizmo world. Coming up with Galaxy S6 and S6 edge is one such move.
Samsung’s latest flagship phone is beautiful, Galaxy S6 edge has a curved screen and the phone is immensely powerful. Let’s see how the actual product is!
For the first time ever, Samsung has released an all metal and glass Smartphone. The design is brilliant and elegant but somehow misses on the waterproofing part. The S6 Edge is both thin at 7mm thick and light at 132g and serves a perfect competition to Apple’s iPhone 6 which has a fairly similar dimension. The curved edges of the screen are brilliant making S6 edge feel slightly thinner and lighter than it actually is.
The display is impressive. Both sides of the screen are very subtle and the touch is far better than the previous Samsung devices. This phone manages to pack QHD resolution into the smaller display and bend it at the sides.
The curves in the phone are fun. When someone from your favorite contact calls, the sides will glow a specific color. This way, you don’t even have to check the caller. Although this is the only gradual justified use of the edges.
Undoubtedly, Camera is the best feature of S6 edge. The 16mp primary camera is outstanding and capable of producing rich, detailed and skilledful photos. The quality is impressive and the 5mp front camera simply compliments the primary camera. You can use the heartbeat sensor on the back of the phone to take photos.
Samsung’s fingerprint sensor under the home button is much improved. With this, you don’t have to swipe the sensor, rather just place your finger on the sensor and the work is done.
Although, one must admit that the battery life of this phone is not at all encouraging. It is something that Samsung should’ve bettered. Provided the cost of this phone, battery life really spoils the deal. Also, the battery cannot be removed and the phone is unnecessarily bundled with FB and Microsoft apps.
