Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

S6 with curved edges. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has curved edges on both sides of the display. This does not only look good, but also brings several additional features. Otherwise, the configuration is the same as that of the Galaxy S6 and uses high-end materials. Unfortunately, the extra costs for the curves are quite steep.

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 if the extra charge is worth it.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Vs Galaxy S6 Edge
Source: Android Authority English
So there you have it for this comprehensive look at the Galaxy S7 Edge vs Galaxy S6 Edge! While it is rare to see a huge jump in between iterations, this is certainly the case here. With a larger display, refined designed, mandatory upgrade in power, the return of key features like expandable storage and dust and water resistance, an improved camera, and most importantly, far better battery life, the Galaxy S7 Edge brings a lot more to the table, and is definitely a worthy upgrade.

With the S7 Edge Samsung has improved on what was already a winning formula, proving that the brave design choices first seen in last year's flagship were just. On paper the 2016 model wins on nearly all counts, but the margins are minimal. Twelve months on and the S6 Edge can still compete with the best of them.

The Galaxy S6 edge+ can be considered simply an S6 edge with a bigger screen, right? Well, our thorough comparison showed that this statement is true only to an extent. The larger, 5.7” display makes a world of difference when it comes to browsing, watching videos, and even perusing the extra features of the interactive side edges of the two flexible display phones.

As for me personally, my next step is to perform (another) hard reset of my Galaxy S6 Edge in the hope it fixes the issues. If it does, great. If it doesn’t, I’ll need to take a long look at what my next smartphone is. The Galaxy Note 5 will definitely appeal – the lack of S Pen means I probably won’t go for the S6 Edge Plus – but I may opt for another brand. I guess we’ll see!

LG G4 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge – Camera Shootout

So there you have it for this in-depth look at the LG G4 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge camera! As you may have noticed throughout the video, the Galaxy S6 does tend feature very punchy colors, but the color reproduction with the LG G4 is far from bland, and the shots still look really nice. Bottom-line, users will likely be happy regardless of which smartphone camera they end up choosing.

At the end of the day, the main story here is that, while both the G4 and the S6 offer a lot of features, they are as quick and smooth as they need to be. Both companies have received a lot of flak for stutter and lag on previous iterations of TouchWiz and LG UX, but complaints are few and far between this time around, and that is a wonderful development.

Base model priced at Rs 62,000, the S6 Edge is undoubtedly an absurdly expensive phone. I personally don't buy any handset that costs more than Rs 30,000. However, if you have money to splurge, the S6 Edge gives you bragging rights of owning a unique phone with a futuristic screen. People will buy this handset over the normal S6. Not because of features associated with the screen, but simply because it looks fancy.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Review: Beauty AND Beast
Source: Androidbeat English
Add it all up and you’ve got a premium smartphone which could have been insane. Imagine a symmetrically curved polycarbonate or even leather effect back, housing a 3500mAh battery, for example. It would have felt so much better in the hand, day to day. As it is, you’ve spent, say, £750 on a SIM free 4GB Galaxy S6 edge, and then you have to pay another £30 to get the official shell case that provides protection for the rear glass that you’ve just paid for and extra thickness for a more comfortable grip. Madness, I tell you, and I can suggest plenty of other options for that £780.

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Galaxy S6 Edge comparison review: Is the edge screen worth paying extra for?
Source: Tech Advisor English
Apart from the gorgeous bezel-free look of the S6 Edge compared to the regular model, we're not convinced it's worth the extra money. There are only a handful of functions and while this may change over time with software updates it's an unknown and no guarantee.

Despite its largely gimmicky curved screen and so-so battery life, there’s a lot to like about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Its camera is incredibly impressive, while performance, responsiveness and screen quality are all very good. However, you get all these benefits in the curve-less and therefore cheaper Galaxy S6. If you need to buy a high-end Android phone, the standard S6 is far better value.

But the crucial issue with the S6 Edge is that Samsung still hasn’t managed to justify the inclusion of the Edge, and why anyone should pay a $100-200 premium. The software features are somewhat interesting, but I simply didn’t use them at all during my time with the device, and once again most of them could have been implemented on a regular flat display. Unless you want a device with a subjectively “cool” feature, there is no reason to buy the Edge over the regular S6.

LG G4 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 edge

Conversely, we’ll applaud the LG G4 for being a worthy competitor too. If savings is your thing, the $200 on-contract cost is deserving for a high caliber phone like this one – though, you’ll be getting a less premium looking phone with its plastic casing. Regardless of that, LG really impresses us with the G4’s amazing low lighting performance with its camera – and its vibrant IPS Quantum Display. Like we said people, there’s no shame going with one of the phone over the other. It just mainly comes down to what design you find more attractive.

It does have some downsides, namely its extortionate price and the arguable frippery of its curved screen, but if you're after a phone that will make others green with envy, there's nothing else that even comes close.

So there you have it – a closer look at the Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Galaxy S6 Edge! Both of these phones show that Samsung has jumped forward in the flagship game. The Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge will be the phones to beat this year, with their speed and stellar camera experience setting the bar very high for the competition. When it comes to picking one over the other though, it is really a matter of aesthetics and handling, both of which benefits that are actually felt. All things considered, the question that you have to answer is whether you are willing to pay even more for a phone that basically just looks and feels different, without bringing a whole lot else to the table.

The Galaxy S6 Edge is a more elegant version of the Galaxy S6, a device that’s become one of the most handsome phones on the market in its own right. Together, the two phones represent a massive aesthetic upgrade over every Galaxy phone that’s come before them. While the utility of a curved screen is still up in the air, the bends on the S6 Edge’s display don’t come off as a gimmick when you’re holding them. They’re implemented in a way that feels natural, turning the device into a genuine luxury item in the process.

There's just no other way to say it--The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are beasts. We were duly impressed with how Qualcomm's octa-core Snapdragon 810 performed in the HTC One M9, and Samsung's own Exynos octa-core power plant is equally impressive in its own way. The S6 duo chewed through our usual suite of benchmarks, and in real-world use, we found it to be noticably fast.

80% Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge review: Why the edge screen isn't worth paying extra for
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is a beautiful smartphone, one of the most attractive but the design has flaws such as sharp edges. While a non-removable battery is an inevitable outcome, we're surprised about the lack of waterproofing and a microSD card slot. Hardware is strong with a gorgeous screen, fast processor and great all-round camera. The key point here is that while dual edge display sounds like an amazing innovation it has very limited in functionality so simply isn't worth the extra money compared to the regular Galaxy S6.

That’s why you buy this phone. It catches the eye better than almost any other handheld out there without being too ostentatious about it, and it oozes the same feeling of quality construction as its non-edgy brother. You probably won’t get much mileage out of its fancy screen features, and it’s got room for improvement in software and battery life … but it’s easily one of the most beautiful smartphones of the year thus far, with one of the best Android cameras ever. The Galaxy S6 edge is a pricey but solid buy if you want a flagship phone with the looks to match … and you don’t mind being a wall-hugger.

The first most critical aspect of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, more than any other, is the change in design. Samsung has clearly identified a problem in their previously iterative approach, and they reacted appropriately by completely changing the materials that they use in their phones, even if the overall industrial design clearly retains a link to past Galaxy phone designs.

Not everyone wants the same phone, and while we can customise the wallpaper, change the ringtone, add a case, throw some stickers on, and do everything possible to the outside to make it a little bit more you, sometimes, that’s just not enough. Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge seems skewed to people who find themselves in that category, where they want the same phone as everyone else, and yet they also don’t, with something crafted with the same care and ingenuity, but with a little more spectacle.

From a cost standpoint, all fingers point to the Sony Xperia Z3, which, at this point, can be grabbed at a fantastic discount if you search in the right places. To be fair, though, the lower cost attached to the Xperia Z3 now makes perfect sense, as the Xperia Z3 has been on the market for some time. Conversely, the Galaxy S6 edge has just recently become available, so it’s going to cost a pretty amount to pick up at the moment.

Whichever phone you end up choosing, just know that it’s going to cost you quite a handful to buy – whether it’s outright or with a contract. Luckily, the pricing structure for the Nexus 6 is pretty uniform whichever outlet you end up going with. So if we’re to look at it from an outright level, you’ll need to fork over a beastly $699.99 to snag the Google Nexus 6.

With a much nicer design, a smaller but superior display, faster hardware, a better camera, and added goodies such as quick charging, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is a genuine superphone that's a worthy upgrade over the LG G3. However, the LG G3 remains more attractive from a price-oriented perspective. Being a year old and nicely discounted, it is one of the cheapest Quad-HD resolution smartphones you can buy new and unlocked. It's also a very nice smartphone overall, and while its looks and performance, admittedly, can't hold a candle to Samsung's latest and greatest, this doesn't make it anything less than a bargain!

The Galaxy Note Edge comes close, though asymmetry and beauty don't always mix - a curve on both sides definitely looks better. Outside the night clock, the added software features around the curve of the Galaxy S6 edge are a mixed bags, borderline gimmicky, but perhaps third-party devs will come up with new ideas. In every other respect, the Galaxy S6 edge was as good as its regular sibling. The shares some unique features like the only 14nm chipset in mass production, which enabled great performance and good battery life. That's on a smaller battery and feeding a sharper, brighter display - one of the best in its class.

The advantage of the S6 Edge over the standard S6 isn't about any functionality. It's just that it's pretty. You wouldn't be the first person to spend $100 extra for something pretty. Otherwise, this is the best Android-powered phone on the market, just in a slightly different shape.

So, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge has slightly longer battery life, and a few extra features over the standard S6. It’s a touch easier to hold, too, and there’s no doubt it will spark more than its fair share of covetous glances when you take it out of your pocket.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Source: Phone Arena English
Yet we must admit that the Galaxy S6 edge is better than the Note 4 in many ways, and we're not talking only about the outstanding design and build quality it draws so much attention with. Samsung's curvy flagship phone shines with its blazing hardware performance and with the responsiveness of its software, which is enough for us to recommend it over “older” Samsung handsets. Not that the Galaxy Note 4 is a slow phone – its Snapdragon 805 can handle anything thrown at it – but the Galaxy S6 edge is more refined of a smartphone with its superior hardware configuration, and that's a plus.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one of those phones that sets a line in the sand for smartphones. It makes curved edges viable, offering them in a phone that doesn't look bonkers just for the sake of it. It won't sell anywhere near as well as the standard S6, simply because it's very expensive and users are always reticent to try something new when there's no proven need for it, and rightly so.

It’s easy to dismiss the Galaxy S6 Edge as a folly, but you shouldn’t. It has one of the best cameras on a phone ever, it looks incredible and its minor shortcomings are forgivable. It’s not a perfect 10 – better battery life and ergonomics would have made it that – but it’s damn close.

This is a great phone in just about every respect. And as part of the bargain you get something that feels better than any phone Samsung has made before. The high price keeps it out of reach of many, but rarely do we so want to get on-board with something that is likely to be seen by so many as a bit of a gimmick.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus
Source: Phone Arena English
We can't deny that both the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus are two of the better, if not the best smartphones in the world right now. Both are extremely polished and designed with a pretty intricate attention to detail. The Galaxy S6 edge is certainly the ultimate embodiment of Samsung's engineering and design prowess.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is the ultimate money-no-object phone. It looks good, feels good, has more power than a small nuclear power station and more features than most people will ever use. Really, it's a terrific phone. Its curvy USP may be more about style than anything else, but that doesn't mean it's not useful. And come on, it's pretty damn cool.

Although exact pricing will be revealed through carrier announcement here in the US, there’s no denying that it’ll more than likely receive a cost that’s higher than its sibling. If you have the money, we would vouch heavily to go with this one. Being an attractive looking, solidly constructed smartphone gets it to a higher level, especially when it’s accompanied with the same impeccable performance that already graces its sibling in the Galaxy S6.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge vs Galaxy Note Edge comparison review: Which edge is best?
Source: Tech Advisor English
Although the Galaxy S6 Edge has some better hardware than the Note Edge and a nicer design we don't think it's worth the large sum of money extra - perhaps when the price drops. Unless you're left handed, the Galaxy Note Edge does the feature better.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge review - pre-order, hands on, price, specs and release date
Source: Expert Reviews English
With the S6 Edge Samsung is back in full force. While this handset may have the same specs, bar the curved screen, of the regular S6, this is the phone that everybody's going to want. It's beautifully made, the colour options all look fantastic and it's a handset like no other. Memories of a plastic build will be vanquished and Samsung now has the best-looking and best-made Android phone, and it looks to have completely overtaken the HTC One m9; even iPhone 6 owners will be sorely tempted by this handset. We'll bring you our full in-depth review as soon as review samples are available.

Once again, the videos give off that huge difference in white balance, but the resulting imagery may leave you debating realistic colors against almost HDR-like image brightness balancing. As mentioned, don’t let this be the end of your research if you are comparing these two devices for purchase.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Review: In Depth
Source: Recombu English
Every year I’m persuaded by the combination of beauty and performance that HTC offers up to side with their latest handset over Samsung’s top smartphone of the moment, but for the first time I’ve found myself on the other side of that divide. Whilst we still haven’t had a chance to put the One M9 under the microscope, everything the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge offers has convinced me that it is the smartphone to beat in 2015 and I want one, badly.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
Let’s get right down to it – we’re bloody excited about the S6 Edge. As a response to the criticisms levelled at the S5 for not feeling premium enough, it’s an out-of-the-park smasher. We probably won’t miss the removable battery and we’ll happily ride the wave of people saying that its design is derivative of other well-known smartphones. The big question at this stage is what the price difference between this and the non-edgy S6 will be.

Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge First Impressions: Curving in a New Direction
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Undoubtedly, Samsung is ahead of the curve (no, this is not a pun) in the smartphone technology innovation front. Its closest competition comes in the form of the LG G Flex2. Although, the Galaxy S6 Edge and the G Flex 2 are unique in their own respect. We are more excited by the prospects of the Galaxy S6 Edge. That said, the Galaxy S6 also has a huge role to play for Samsung if the company intends to win back its loyal customers and make new ones as well. All said and done, this year Samsung's flagship game looks stronger than ever.

Naturally, it is impossible to really judge these phone by their specs or by several minutes of handling them in controlled circumstances. We hope to have full reviews of them when they ship, but there's no doubt that the race is on to try to offer smartphone enthusiasts high-end devices that not only offer improved performance, photography, video and displays, but that look really good.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are just what the doctor ordered for the Korean manufacturer. The duo combine the Samsung's best efforts to date in both design and hardware.

Comment

Model: The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S6 in most aspects baring the curved screen at both sides. This feature allows users to take opportunity of several notification capabilities even if the device is facing down. Some say even the ergonomics are improved with specialized functions that can be performed from the curved screen. Design-wise, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge comes with a similar layout to the more traditional Samsung Galaxy S6 up to the glass back cover.

There is no longer an SD card slot and removable battery instead wireless charging is on board right off the bat. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge features a gorgeous 5.1 inch Super AMOLED screen. The entire front and back of the smartphone is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Hardware consists of an Exynos 7420 quad-core processor, 3 GB RAM, a Mali-T760MP8 GPU and an option of 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB device storage. Cameras on the device is very impressive with a 16 MP rear shooter and 5 megapixel front shooter. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is feature packed to the brim and even the fingerprint scanner has been replaced by a touch model. Battery life is good even if the capacity might seem smaller than other flagships with a Li-Ion 2600 mAh battery.

ARM Mali-T760 MP8: Mobile graphics solution for tablets and smartphones, which can be found in ARM SoCs like the Exynos 7420 Octa.
