Introduction of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Samsung launched the much awaited Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone this year in April alongside the Galaxy S6 smartphone. The phone is a refined version of Samsung Galaxy S6 with minor improvements. The phone featured with a Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen powered by Exynos 7420 chipset with octa-core processor making it a very powerful device. The unique selling proposition (USP) of this phone is its bent edges which really add to the beauty of the phone and the fingerprint scanner, the phone is approximately 7 mm thicker than Galaxy S6 and has minor refinements like that of improved battery. The phone is provided with a 16MP primary camera that takes really amazing pictures.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has been designed very carefully thus making it look spectacular, the edges of the phone are bent and are made using aluminum instead of plastic. The phone looks really classy owing to the diamond rolled edges of the phone while the overall lustre of the phone is something to admire. Samsung should really be praised in the respect that they managed to fit a 5.1 inches screen into a body that is not bigger than the Apple iPhone 6 mobile. The home button is integrated with the fingerprint sensor and can sometimes be a little problematic as it’s not flushed with the front surface of the phone, thus there may be few chances where the home button could be accidently pressed when kept inside the pocket which can cause pocket dialing and can drain the battery for no reason.
The phone can be easily used with one hand as its dimensions are 5.59 x 2.76 x 0.28 inches and it’s weight is 132 grams thus making it very light weight. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 which is also used in the back panel. There are four color variants of this phone namely, White, Gold, Blue and Green.
Display Features :
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is provided with 5.1 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen with 16M colors having resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. The phone has approximately 577 pixels per inch, thus making its display a wonder. The display is also multi-touch enabled and something to be proud of. The lopsided look of the phone with its bent edges provides a pleasant experience when you would hold it. The amazing feature of the display includes controlling the video player as all you need to do is swipe around the display and the work is done. The display of Galaxy S6 Edge will really catch your eyes with the crispness and clarity of the images it produces. The Super AMOLED capacitive screen produces beautiful and vibrant colors and we did not find anything wrong with the display of the phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge comes with internal storage of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB which cannot be expanded as there is no MicroSD card slot provided in the phone. The phone also comes with a 3 GB RAM, thus making it work smoothly.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is powered by Exynos 7420 chipset torqued with Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2.1 GHz Cortex-A57 processor, making it have a total of eight cores. The phone works really smooth and we did not observe any lag or delayed touch response from it. We played high end games like Asphalt on this phone and it ran smoothly without any problem. We also watched heavily encoded videos on the phone and were really impressed by its stunning display of video and its ability to process big files easily.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is provided with 16 MP primary camera having 2988 x 5312 pixels powered with optical image stabilization, autofocus, LED flash and check quality feature. The secondary camera is of 5 MP having 1440p@30fps with dual video call and Auto HDR functionality. The video is recorded with 2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps, 720p@120fps quality mode and added options includes HDR, dual-video rec., check quality in the video. The picture quality is really stunning and the videos recorded with the phone were really crisp and clear. The primary camera has various features like Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, Auto HDR and panorama mode. We did not find any problems with the camera as it worked perfectly even in dark places too.
Battery Backup Life:
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is provided with a Non-removable Li-Ion 2600 mAh battery, which is 50 mAh more than Samsung Galaxy S6, which promises a Stand-by talk time up to 18 hours on a 3G Network and music play up to 50 h. When we tested the phone for its battery we were really impressed by its performance. Even though the battery is just 2600 mAh it works great. The technology used in this phone saves a lot of battery usage, which we think is due to the efficient Exynos octa core processor used in the phone which really optimizes the battery usage. Ultra-Power Saving mode is enabled in this phone which lets your battery work for weeks even with a single charge thus making it a perfect travel partner.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Price:
Though Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge price was around 60k rupees, but since its launch the price seems to have reduced nearly 20k. The variations in price of Galaxy S6 Edge can be noticed from the above graph. PriceJugaad also predicts further reduce in prices by 2% to 4% in next few upcoming weeks.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge runs on Android Lollipop platform and can be upgraded to the Marshmallow version when available. The TouchWiz installed in this phone is really amazing and is far more improved than the earlier versions of it that were not user friendly and were a cause of concern for Samsung’s smartphones. The TouchWiz looks exactly like the Google’s Material Design and is really refined so as not to take unnecessary space by providing useless applications. Overall the TouchWiz has improved, but somewhere we still got the feeling of childish and playful use of colors in the user interface. The phone can be installed with single nano SIM and supports wireless charging. The phone doesn’t come with a Radio but that’s not a problem anymore as you can easily listen to the radio stations using the internet.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is an amazing phone and is certainly worth the money even though it has almost identical features like that of Galaxy S6 but the impeccable design is surely something to consider when purchasing the phone. The phone has attained a feature score of 88 on Pricejugaad.com which is really great while it has also scored 70 in user reviews. The phone is something to invest money in as it offers great features and amazing experience.
