Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Review

Rather than sporting one curved edge like the Note Edge last fall, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge favors a uniform approach by sporting a dual curved display – where the left and right sides are subtly curved...

ikr with just a 50mah difference the edge has an hour more life. if only they could have done 2800mah like the s5. and the note 5 is going to be a moster bruh

Samsung comes out strong this year. Awesome job. The S6 and S6 Edge totally rock.

As a HUGE Apple fan and a HUGE Samsung fan, I cannot express how happy I am to admit that the Galaxy S6 Edge undeniably destroys the iPhone 6. I cannot wait to buy one (or wait for the note 5 edge). I mean, what are the flaws with this phone? Even if I'm being picky, I just might get on the battery size or the headphone output quality, but still! This phone is the new phone to beat. Drastically improve performance...check Increase specs and efficiency...check Make Camera the best in the industry...check Keep phone thin but don't sacrifice battery life...check Include a 1440p screen but doesn't hamper performance...check Make one of the most unique phone designs ever...check Implement a fingerprint sensor that rivals the iPhone...check Finally give the US some in house processor love...check I'm sure the list is longer, but wow. Samsung did it.

Samsung is the world changer. The S6 edge is a perfect example.

wow the edge(2600mah) only has a slightly bigger battery than the s6(2550mah) and yet it gets and hour more of life, thats amazing.

That seems to be more like a flawed test than amazing. I think PA did a half-assed review of S6. See, even the benchmarks are much worse for s6 but that's not true. Or maybe regular s6 is running a non-final software build. But still the benchmarks are BS.

Did you actually read the review ? He stated that the edge's brightness couldn't be adjusted to 200nits like the regular S6, so the edge was tested at 180 nits.

Still 20 nits almost don't make a difference. It'll barely affect the test by 5-10 min.

The s6 is thinner that why and does not have the glass sides to move heat and it shows in the bechmarks

s6 & s6 edge has same score, but s6 edge is better than regular s6 because of battery life.

"Based on our usage, we feel as though the S6 edge eats up battery quicker than its sibling", yet in actuality it lasts longer than S6 based on the battery test chart ??

It's good I am not a reviewer cos if it was me I would rate this phone a 10. Lol 1. I don't use micro SD and removable batteries because I'm an IPhone user 2. The edge is sexier than any phone on the planet. 3. Best screen by a mile 4. Killer camera and functionality 5. The power of android plus touchwiz features all circling around a powerful yet efficient processor and memory. 6. Adequate battery life 7. Apple like finger print scanner on a android phone. 8. Samsung pay that works in my country unlike Apple pay 9. Fast charging, very important since we're facing power issues in my country. 10. It's a samsung for Christ seek, which means it will be cheaper than an iPhone in my country. Hurray!!! I have fallen in love with this company.

Wow. Just wow. I want to throw my GS5 now. Good Job Sammy. The only thing missing is the front firing stereo speakers.

Exactly the way I feel, except .. I wouldn't bother about the front firing stereo speakers :P!

This phone will steal so many iPhone costumers... They won't need an sd card. Meanwhile i found some pretty sick deals for the 128gb version so I won't need a sd card anymore ^^

Sammy you beauty... M9 with bigger battery and 1080p display loses to S6 in battery. have to agree that Touchwiz is always optimize to battery even better than Stock.
