In the recent past, we’ve seen many instances of screens being curvy, flexible and even being rolled up like a paper. While you would normally associate curves with women, such trends are now also popping up in the touch-screen industry with demonstrations of many types of such screens at different events. Samsung has taken a similar step with the Galaxy S6 Edge, boasting some of the best hardware around, just like its sibling Galaxy S6. But how can adding curved edges to the Galaxy S6 make Galaxy S6 Edge a completely different experience?
Let’s start with how both the phones feel and it is pretty evident from right there that the Edge has a very different feel due to the curves on both sides of the screen. Although it looks great from a certain angle, kind of putting a 3D perspective to things, but there certainly is a price that comes with it, and I’m not referring to the added $100 on the price of Galaxy S6. After using it for some time, you will notice that holding it tight or firmly sometimes triggers touches on the sides which can be a little annoying and that is a real problem with the usage of the device.
The curves come with a set of features of their own, involving the display of notification on the edges, or lighting them up with a certain color for different notifications. However, they are not used very frequently and really don’t make up for the extra bread you’d be spending on it.
Internally, both the phones, S6 and S6 Edge are identical in specifications. Both use the Exynos 7420 chipset, a Quad-core 1.5GHz Cortex-Ag3 and a Quad-core 2.1 GHz Cortex-A57 side by side along with the 3 Gigs of RAM. These specifications do stand for one of the best in the market and the performance proves this point even more. It is certainly one of the fastest phones in the market, just like its sibling and it is a device you can hold onto for the foreseeable future without worrying about upgrading.
Dimensions-wise, S6 Edge is slightly thicker than its sibling i.e. 7mm thick, which maybe because it hosts a larger battery at 2600mAh and even with heavy use involving Web browsing and such activities, you can last pretty long and will require a charger on the second day. It possesses a 16 megapixel camera which allows for 4K-video shooting at 30-frames per second and gives you a slow-mo of up to 120-frames per second at 720p, which pretty much is the market standard, at the moment.
The final verdict is that the Galaxy S6 Edge is a fancy phone on the outside, and a beast of a phone on the inside, but performance aside it still is very expensive considering all the other flagship phones in the market and the additional $100 don’t really seem to make up for the curves.
