I was a bit sceptical about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. But one look at the device and I was sold. This is one stunning flagship, like Note Edge. However, despite the curved glass edges on both sides they don’t display notifications like the Note Edge. This is more curved glass for awe than effectiveness.

The device is extremely smooth and fluid to navigate. The camera is impressive too, especially in low light.

The simple S6 on the other hand looks a bit of a mix between the Sony Xperia Z3 and the iPhone 6. However, performance Is not an issue with this phone. It is also lightweight and stylish, though not particularly original.
