The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge also comes packed with the same stuffs as seen on the Galaxy S6. The S6 Edge is 7mm thick and weight is 132 grams. This handset is using a 2600 mAh Li-ion battery. Key difference between the S6 and S6 Edge is the curved screen that gives it a completely unique look and feel.

The edge is slightly different when compared with the Galaxy Edge. The curved screen will show notification, colour hint (you can assign different colors to users, it will blink giving you hint who is calling – works best when the handset is placed face down or in pocket when you are not able to see who is calling.

At the MWC event Samsung mentioned that the S6 / S6 Edge when compared to iPhone charges much faster, shoots better images / videos and S6 / S6 Edge doesn’t bend.

The Galaxy S6 Edge will cost more than the Galaxy S6. No word about the launch of these handsets in India, but when they do it will cost over Rs. 50,000.

  1. you people stop criticizing it may be priced on the higher side but its a hell of a device toppling the antutu base mark scores and 14nm 64bit chipset and also pretty slim too and camera is also very much improved .

    1. Hi Arun,

      FYI, for the same chip fabricated in 28nm and 14nm, 14nm process approximately takes half the power compared to 28nm even though the chip is same…Other than that Organic LED takes lesser power than the conventional Thin Film Transistors panel!!…..See the battery performance in their presentation, its pretty decent only!! not that bad!!

  2. Gogi you didn’t mention faster internal drives that give 2X read write speed and 30% battery savings and 14nm manufacturing process.

  3. Not very impressive, only gorilla glass 4 got my attention.(of course price too).

  4. धत् तेरी की…….खोदा पहाड पर निकला मरा हुआ चुहा……

  5. Samsung has made too much compromise to make it look very premium. for the first time this flagship model will have no micro SD card and also the battery is sealed and not user replaceable. also handset is no longer water resistant like older S5. its a great looking handset for those who appreciate beauty over functionality….specially iPhone owners will like galaxy S6.

    1. I agree they’ve been following their same 3-4 years old design language for each & every device they launch irrespective of the price bracket, what a shame in seeing the future of mobility & communication lies in the hands of oem’s like these. Lack of originality is something that bothers me these days.

    2. +1,without SD slot, non removable battery, same design pattern just metal upgrade. They just simply try to follow apple. Apple have loyal izombies who simply buy anything apple sales. I will buy rather copycat xiaomi then this shit.

  6. You have not mention fast and wireless charger, battery charged 4 hrs usable only 10 min charge.

    1. Really, then whats gonna happen when s8 realeases… You just need to beg…. No more kidneys to give… Lol…. D___ A__

      1. Guys,I was just joking.I will never ever buy Sammy Shit in my lifetime.I am just going to try and buy Yureka this Thursday!

  7. Everything is fine except the battery 2500 mah ?? I think it wont last more than a day maximum .

    1. Mohit bro
