Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Smartphone Review

 

A new standard. The conventional Galaxy S6 was already very convincing in our review. Samsung now offers a smartphone with two rounded display edges with the Galaxy S6 Edge for the first time, but the additional price is pretty steep. Our review shows...

Good display, Sophisticated materials, Great build quality, Thin and light, Fast SoC, Great camera, Good WLAN signal, High Bluetooth range, Great voice quality, Wireless charging, Quick charge

Storage not expandable, Neither MHL nor DLNA, No IP certification anymore, Mediocre GPS accuracy, Poor headset, Weak speaker

With or without a rounded display, the smartphones from the Galaxy S6-series are equipped with the latest hardware components and the Galaxy S6 Edge once again shows how innovative the Koreans can be. You will have to decide for yourself whether the...

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ (AT&T)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ on AT&T is a big, beautiful, powerful smartphone, with a sky-high price that's tough to justify.

Fast performance. Premium materials. Excellent cameras.

Extremely expensive. Edge functionality is limited.

Comparisons and Conclusions This phone costs $814. That's a lot of money. As the AT&T edge+ doesn't have better battery life than the AT&T Galaxy Note 5, you really are paying $75 for curved glass here, and I don't think that's the best deal. The...

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge review

 

The curved screen on the Galaxy S6 Edge looks beautiful but harms the experience. We highly recommend a standard Galaxy S6.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are both absolutely gorgeous phones. They borrow a lot of design traits from the iPhone line, and that’s fantastic, because the iPhone is the most beautiful phone out there. But of the two, we do recommend the Galaxy S6 Edge.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Review

 

As recently as the Galaxy S5, Samsung had a fundamentally different strategy from companies like HTC and Apple. While design wasn't ignored completely, Samsung Mobile had a different set of priorities. In general, it felt like Samsung wanted the phone...

Taking everything together, the Galaxy S6 is the phone to beat right now. I’m not sure I’m the biggest fan of the glass back, but the display, camera, SoC, fingerprint sensor, battery life, and design are all strong points in favor of the Galaxy S6. In...

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Review

 

Samsung has a lackluster track record making flagship smartphones with serious lust-appeal. Its plastic-bodied Galaxy range was the Camry trying to play in Mercedes and Audi territory, earnestly ticking the boxes on the spec sheet, but failing to grasp...

At first glance, it should be easy to make a flagship smartphone. Scoop off the cream at the top of the component chain, throw in some premium materials – you can take your pick, but metal and glass seem good places to start – and bingo. Problem is,...

Galaxy S6 Edge review: Samsung's vanity phone

 

This is one of Samsung's most beautiful products, but it may not be worth the extra Benjamin it costs to bring home.

Fantastic 16-megapixel camera that works well in all lighting situations ; Battery efficient, despite its Quad HD display

A bit of light leak in the display around the curved edges

The Galaxy S6 Edge is all beauty and brains, but you should only spend the extra cash if you absolutely want the novelty of a curved edge.
