This recent addition to the Samsung smartphone market is definitely worth a second, third and even a fourth look. Who could have thought a simple curve would augment a phone from a plain slab of metal and glass to a thing of beauty and elegance. The curved edges not only look great but also enhance the display manifold.
This is definitely a power packed phone with a Quad-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 and Quad-core 2.1GHz Cortex-A57 processors that run on Android v5.0.2 (Lollipop). The thing does not slow down no matter how much you multitask and the display is superlative. The curved design gives an added depth that is lacking in flat phones while the 5.1 inch super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen is nothing to scoff about either.
S6 Edge has a 16 megapixel rear camera and a 5megapixel front one. Both the cameras are capable of taking sharp pictures consistently, even when the light is dim. The phone is available in 32/64/128 GB options and has a 3GB RAM. It is a good idea to go for the higher internal storage handset if you love your music or videos as there is no option of inflating the memory using a microSD card.
Here is a handset that definitely has an edge over its counterparts and is worth splurging on if you are looking for efficiency coupled with elegance.
