Another powerful,beautiful beast from Samsung
htainlintha has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I got this phone 2 weeks ago,mine is exynos version,64GB bought form ebay Australia and it is a Korean Variant. Man, this gorgeous phone performance matches its stellar looks. Really amazingly well-done in improvements of TouchWiz and camera has many improvements also. The big selling points for me in this phones are game launchers, Samsung pay, SD card, huge 3600mAh battery, water proof and dust proof. I mean, give it a shot and it won't disappoint you.

The Laggy touch wiz one of the worst UI around
Very Very Expensive mobile phone
No SD slot, no removable battery why ????
The features of the edge are nice but a bit gimmicky
No Radio FM/AM

Poor Battery life,Poor wifi reception and poor signal reception
Gadgetex has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
If it had a better battery life,better Signal reception,faster download speeds for cellular data and wifi,Better/stronger wifi reception and a louder speaker it would be perfect. Cell reception signal killed it for me along with poor wifi reception. Bought mine unlocked in Hong Kong

The real user Galaxy S6 EDGE!
Tripax has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Overall, I can only say good S6 EDGE and beautiful, as my analysis suggests, it works very well at all and does what it promises, the battery could be a bit stronger when we use internet a lot and constantly photos, but when there are days when using little, and uses only calls and messages, the battery has an extremely good behavior, the radio was to bring is some lack certain users, and the battery should be removable, since the card can not use SD card but 32GB enough to be realistic.

Best Smartphone EVER !!!!!!!
stferrari has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I think this is probably the best smartphone built to date. I has an outstanding display and camera, as extremely solid feel to hold, very fluid and speedy interface response, and surprisingly enough very reasonable battery life (and when you do need to charge the battery, it is lightning fast.
Love the wireless changing and the fingerprint scanner in very reliable. I look forward to "Samsung Pay" to see how well this would work.
Wish it had a replaceable battery as this phone is a keeper and eventually the battery will get tired and have to be replaced. While Samsung will do this for only $45 it is very inconvenient to have to ship the phone to them and wait for the turnaround. I do not find the lack of micro-SD support an issue (thought I would but I don't)

A perfect sucessor
Commandant has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The camera is good.
Takes time to get used to the edges, at first the feel is like handling a blunt knife and most of the time accidentally your hand and fingers would touch the side screens.
Fingerprint scanner is not as good as iphone 6.
doesn't worth 200 more than the regular s6, just for a slightly different screen.
user interface has improved.
Don't buy dark colors because you would have to carry a napkin to clean it all the time.
I had the phone for 2 days and returned it.

Like it so far
Windsponge has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
This phone is much smoother than my note 4. I can't speak for others but battery last longer than note 4 and I phone 6 plus did for my usages. I would consider my self moderate user. Not a heavy. Great so far.

Best Galaxy phone yet.
Android has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The premium feel is definitely worth it. I love how fast it is. The camera is very good in low light and is also fast for taking pictures. I would definitely recommend it, although I was kinda worried on how fragile this phone might be. It turns out that this phone can handle a pretty decent amount of abuse.

Great value for the money
margaritm has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Fast and reliable phone. Really good performance in all aspects. The only cons that I can point are the glass back and the curved display, but of course you can always buy the regular s6 version. Good display.
This was good while it lasted
S6S7S8S9123 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Not bad for Samsung's first big change. The only thing I would worry about is the battery life. The display is still absolutely astonishing compared to phones from 2018. I definitely recommend buying this thing. Good job Samsung!!!

One of the most beautiful phone ever made
toma_ichuaidze has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

Solid phone, but has aging problems
Phone_Enthusiast has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I got this phone on verizon almost two years ago. Its build quality was second to none at the time, solid frame, smooth glass blended in between aluminum framing.
Screen resolution is still fantastic, even with newwr phones like the Galaxy S8 now in people's hands. The result is a gorgeous display rendering vibrant colors with little to no bleed, and not oversaturated. Viewing photos, movies, etc, is a pure joy on this device.
The cameras are a bit of a mixed bag. The rear/main camera takes phenomenal photos with great xlarity, no wash out, little noise, not to warm or cool in hue. What you see in the view finder is very, very accurate to the final image produced once you snap the photo. However, the front/selfie cam can be underwhelming at times. Images are often dark and granulated, with some noise artefacts, and doesn't quite line up with what is shown in tge view finder prior to snapping. Selfies are sufficient, but just a tad underwhelming for what isvsupposed to be a very strong front camera.
Reception is good, only breaking up in the usual circumstances-- lots of tree coverage, etc.
Internet is good for tte most part. Wrb browsing iscfenerally quick and smooth, only minor hiccups here and there that are likely associated with the age of the device.
Calling is decent, but tgere is better out there. It gets the job done, but there is some muffling on the other end. Though the person on the other end says sound is clear and crisp from my end.
UI is still quick and...
Non-Existent warranty - Do not buy the Edge
mcbsteve has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
NON-EXISTENT WARRANTY. I have a Galaxy S6 Edge. The night clock does not work and if you are like me, that is the only portion of the "Edge" that I use. I have tried erasing and resetting the phone(3 times), clearing the system cache, and even running it in safe mode. I have sent the phone into a Samsung approved repair centre 3 times in one month! Instead of physically looking at the device, they plug it into a computer and tell me that "it meets "manufacturer specifications".
Samsung Executive Customer Service then refused to replace the device and, when I refused to send it a 4th time (ridiculous), they asked me to video tape the problem and email it to them. What a joke and what horrible customer service. I have never been treated like this by a company. Shameful customer service.

its an empty piece of premium glass
youngevans has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I migrated from the galaxy s5 lte-a (sm-g906k) to the galaxy s6 edge (sm-g925p) and am not impressed at all. It cannot be compared to the s5 lte-a at all. Apart from appearance that looks premium than the s5, within both phones the galaxy s6 edge is a lil piece of s**t. I mean how can a 1050 euro cell phone doesn't have a video call option, the duration spoken on a call will not be seen, menu items cannot be customized nor organized, touch button lights cannot be turn off, camera shotcut on lockscreen cannot be turned off even with the latest update of lollipop 5.1.1 And some useful features like air view, air gesture, motions and gesture, reactivation lock and many more? Photocopying iphone which is behind you doesn't make sense to me. IPhone lovers buy iphone and will buy iphone no matter what you samsung do to thier phones. And now here we are saying samsung did a bulls**t phone and i will not recommend it to anyone.

Best phone I have ever owned.
JP314 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Overall 9/10. Everything about the phone is great. Only thing I wish was better was the battery life however the fast charging does make up for it. Physically it is not to bigg or small but it is delicate as it is made of glass.
User of iPhone using also new Samsung S6 Edge.
makrem2141 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I have 2 Iphones I decide it to change one of them to a samsung S6 Edge,what I don't like on this new phone S6 ,that there is always background apps running,no matter what you do in settings,that make the battery drown alway.battery on iPhone much better. I love the shape of it,nice hold on the hand,camera best of the best so far,front camera is as well is good but give a strange face like oval face. I have to say this,if iPhone would have a better camera I will be back to IOS is better secure and easy to use.
zac_attack has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Love this phone great mix between Android and IOS experience, The edge is definitely worth the 100$ it looks cool and features are very helpful, i use them all everyday (Especially Night Clock and People Edge)
Build quality: Everyone says the phone is slippery and will break easily but in my opinion this is a quite sturdy phone that feels great in the hand and looks absolutely sexy as hell best looking phone of all times.
Reception: Really good reception compared to iPhone 6 on same Carrier and it usually has 1-2 more bars.
Call quality: Great sound from speaker both ear and from phone very loud and clear.
Internet: Works great no problems
Multimedia: All media plays well and works very well on phone.
Camera: Absolutely AMAZING camera the pictures are to good to be real video is also really nice.
UI speed: Phone is extremely fast, and touchwiz has been improved a lot making is much nicer looking and much faster.
Everyday Usage: Works well for day to day use, consistent and feels like it will last a while.
Text input: Good
Display: Display is amazing love the 2k resolution very sharp and glass is very smooth and strong
Battery: Only thing I would complain about is this makes it through the day but just barely, although it performs well for 577ppi and its powerful processor. But charging is extremely fast.

Phone Okay but not great !
dlucio75 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Forced to switch carriers and wasn't happy about. I previously had the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active from Att . In my opinion. Best phone ever made. I now have the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge from T-Mobile which is okay.Last night I had phone on 100% with it not being plugged and it died with me not using it by the morning. My Active lasted at night even at work for my full 8 hours and plus more and with my Edge, it was was 50% with hardly any use so bottom line battery sucks!! Edge has no external memory and Active does. Edge not waterproof nor water resistant and the Active is. I guess I can say is the speakers are loud and clear with no distortion and screen quality is awesome on the Edge.
