Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: all the new features

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: all the new features
Samsung got all eyes on its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge flagships today, and it's the Edge that picked everyone's attention with its dual-edged flexible AMOLED display, that is the only thing which separates it from the "plain" S6, if we don't count the slightly different dimensions, and the larger battery.

The Galaxy S6 edge images below give an elaborate illustration to all of the leaks and rumors, showing the very slight curve of the screen that the phone has (much narrower of a curve than what's on the Note Edge, for instance). Take a look at all of the S6 edge new features below, and bear in mind that these are largely the same as the S6, surprise, surprise.

you will get over the micro sd pretty fast. i got over it after i bought the iphone 6.

You're right, and it could happen that the rest of the OEMs might drop the micro SD slot in the future so it's probably best not to rely on them so much now. I used the micro sd cards for various videos, so it was nice to be able to get that much storage without having to pay a premium price for a 128gb on board storage phone. Nice to see HTC was able to keep it this year.

same. im on contract for 4 more months but that will go poof. either they will give me an early upgrade when I complain and say im switching carriers bc the carrier will pay the termination or I already have $900 in my cabinet waiting to be thrown at the cashier

LOL! Aren't 128GB enough for you?

20. GeekMovement unregistered

Lol, I know, crazy, but downloading videos in sign language uses up space pretty quickly for me, especially if they're higher quality like 720p. I can bet 128gb is plenty, but I personally prefer paying the base price and using the micro sd card slot rather than +$200 the price of the standard 32gb model on contract.

I love Samsung phones but never really liked the design part until Note 4, Alpha, A- series but this thing is beautiful.

Phone will lag big time if it did and crap up the phone use, it's also will. E faster to keep thing you do not need on the included 100gb cloud, please come into 2015

Micro SD storage causes the phone to lag?

For now. But in 2 years your device will have it and then it will be innovative.

In the years to come most phones will probably adopt de Edge look , it's the next logical step in terms of design

Why is it that they always take out a ugly color? like does anybody find that green one good looking? -.- Don't get me wrong they are amazing phones, but try keeping the color options to at least some nice decent color options.
