Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Debuts with Two Curved Edges, High Resolution Screen!
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is Samsung’s other smartphone that they announced at the Mobile World Congress this month in Barcelona, Spain. If you’ve been following the developments, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is the smartphone that was in T-Mobile’s teaser ad for a Samsung Galaxy phone a few days ago.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Galaxy S6 are similar, but the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has the curved screen edge from the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge which released last year. Instead of having one curved edge, it has two. Many of the features of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge have been retained for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. However, because it is not a Note phone, the screen is smaller. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is a 5.1-inch 1440p smartphone.
It has a PPI of around 576, which means the screen will be crystal clear when you use it. It runs the latest version of Android Lollipop too. Perhaps the biggest surprise (other than the edges) is that Samsung opted to go for the Exynos 7420 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 810 chipset like many were predicting. The Snapdragon 810 chipset had overheating rumors, so that could be part of the reason why Samsung decided to go with a different chipset. It has 32/64/128GB storage options as well as 3GB of RAM. Both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are thinner and lighter than last year’s Samsung Galaxy S5. However, this did come somewhat at a cost.
There is no removable battery nor is there a microSD card slot this time around. So, if you use microSD cards, you will want to look for another phone. Many people enjoy having removable batteries so they can quickly swap the batteries in their phone if they need to. However, not having a removable battery isn’t an uncommon feature in many smartphones today.
Most people simply carry around an external battery pack if they are worried about their phone running out of batteries. Nearly every preview of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has been good. Reviewers are much more receptive to the design of this phone than they have with Samsung’s phones in the past. They felt that both of the edges gave the phone a nice feel, and that Samsung did a good job making use of the curved screen.
