The latest iteration of the Samsung Galaxy line is made up of two devices, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. The Galaxy S6 Edge is the top-flight device available from the manufacturer, offering its revolutionary panoramic screen at a premium when compared to the base model S6, but the attractive package of features the standard Galaxy S6 offers means the difference may not be worthwhile for everyone in the market for a new Android phone.
While the S6 Edge challenges the limits of the smartphone form factor at large by wrapping its Gorilla Glass screen slightly over the front edges of the device, both it and the base Galaxy S6 employ the same 5.1 inch Super AMOLED screen rated for 577 pixels per square inch. Both devices benefit from upgraded internal processors that promote faster operation than ever before and improved 4G LTE connectivity. Standard S6 models include 32GB of onboard memory to double the amount offered by the Galaxy S5, and you can get the Samsung Galaxy S6 at Harvey Norman today.
The most visible improvement offered by the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge when compared with the base model is the design of the screen. This groundbreaking design element is designed to deliver a more engaging experience when media streaming, 3D gaming or simple Internet browsing due to its slimmed down bezel and panoramic display.
The Edge system is designed for more than simple optics, it is integrated into several core features of the phone to give it a new dimension of utility. One of these new features is called People Edge, which allows users to assign up to 5 contacts with a corresponding color that will emanate from the edges of the device even when it is face down for a more intuitive version of Caller ID.
Information Stream is another feature that makes use of Edge functionality, delivering customized updates that can be set to scroll along an edge of the device for access at a glance, and the unique new features of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge are all powered by a slightly larger internal battery than the standard S6, delivering over 25 hours of talk time on a single charge.
While the S6 Edge is undoubtedly the star of this year’s twin Samsung releases, the base Galaxy S6 is still engineered as the finest of the conventional smartphone experience. Nevertheless, those who find new technologies irresistible or frequently use their smartphones as mobile entertainment devices may consider an upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge a worthwhile investment.
