Samsung has released their new phone Samsung Galaxy S6 which presents on the market like something never seen before. In fact, it is. It is the first phone with curved edges which caused a great hype around Android and Samsung fans. Let’s take a look at the specifications and how the new phone does in the overall!
Not any other feature on this phone is as remarkable as the design to be honest. Even though it is slightly thicker than the Samsung Galaxy S6, it feels incredibly light in the hand. However, the thing that may be problematic (especially for those who have big hands) is that you have little space to hold on to because of the edges. If you have enabled edge buttons, then you may end up pressing buttons and taking actions such as calling people on your list.
But all in all, we must admit that is a really great looking phone, more elegant than any other phone on the market.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge uses non-removable Li-Ion 2600 mAh battery, which is a strong battery indeed. However, what we noticed and what existing Samsung users say is that the battery isn’t that durable. Still, it pretty much depend on how you use the phone. The big screen undoubtedly needs battery to function, yet the other ways you use your phone will determine the duration of the battery. If you are one of those people who spend their entire day on the phones, then it is only logical that you will need to charge the phone maybe even twice a day.
