s6 edge my friend bought last week, whenever we take videos too much overheating phone, camera is good
Have been using the 6 edge for over a week now , here is my thoughts and short review of the phone :
- excellent camera performance , the best in all Samsung phone to date . Low light are one of the best in market , ois works like a charm and the selfie camera are so good in quality (best in market) . They both are very snappy and fast capturing .
- responsive interferface , but do suffer a bit of stagger time to time . Big improvment from all previous Samsung devices .
- fastest charging device ever
- perfect build quality and very luxurious . Compare to all Samsung devices this is yet the best and sturdy phone ever made , Stylish & classy design . Still can't stop looking at it .
- display is truley the best compare to all competitors
- finger print recognition is excellent which works 95% of the time , on par with iPhone 6 .
- loudspeakers has been improved dramatically compare to note edge , note 4 . the speaker produce lots of warmth and crisp that does not suffer distortion on loud volume . Very good job !!
- battery become better after a few cycle of charging , but still need improvement . Specially for heavy phone users . Last full day under normal usage , but not for heavy gaming or YouTube browsing .
- after taking a shot from the camera and if you want to quick browse through your photo , there is some what a second -2 second delay till the photo shows up in true resolution .
- still shows slight lag in the system , but as mentioned above its still the best compare to all Samsung models .
Overall I'm totally satisfy with this phone ! yes there is a few cons with in the device , but which phone doesn't ? There is no doubt that the s6 edge is a big improvement compare to all devices in the past . It's not about how big the upgrade in its function , but it's about how much Samsung has corrected and fixed its downfall from previous generation . To that I give a big thumbs up as 80% of the issue from the past has been addressed , such as : finger print sensor now works like a charm without have to swipe down like previously , camera has a huge improvement in low light and fast shutter speed , loudspeaker now produce amazing sound , more sturdier and duarable build quality compare to all previous devices , improved responsiveness and better optimisation to its interface . This are all evidence of improvements . Yes a bigger battery or a replaceable battery will be appreciated , but is it enough to justifie the true decision of making the purchase ? Are you going to pass up on 10 things Samsung has improved over one thing they didn't ? Regards to sd card , this could mean bad or good to some people . I personally don't like sd card , as previous experience of losing all my files because something went wrong and corrupted the card . So I find them not reliable . The phone probably wont be everyone's liking (no phones are) , but I must give Samsung a big plaw on this one as they really take people's opinion and delivered a better experience to its users . Great job !
Hope this short and unprofessional review help others that are deciding for the purchase .
I bought my s6 edge yesterday and a way better than my previous phones but I have issue on the battery its easy to drain. Well normally if Im using the net regularly its really fast. But I think much faster to drain.
I have to say the S6 Edge (in platinum gold) is the best mobile I've had. Even better than my IPhone 6 plus!

So i had to cancel and re-preorder a Gold Edge 64gb instead and all 64gb Edge won't be available before end of the month here in FR.
It's even worse for 128gb models, not before end of may.
I have been using this device from the last week when it arrived in the market. As the design of this device is unique and sexy also the performance is just awesome & so smooth. I truly recommend this device.
Dont fast charge your S6 Edge device. Fasting charging is causing some units to create excessive heat; thus burning out the gyro and accello sensors. Play it safe, if you have to use the faster USB charger, only leave the unit on it for 10 min intervals or monitor the heat. If it get to warm, disconnect...Another option is to use a regular universal USB charge..It will take longer to charge, but wont break the phones sensors. It took me three phones in one week to find this out. Carriers will have to push a hot fix to control the rate of the charging or at the least fore warn consumers....

rejaz, 18 Apr 2015Got it, thanks for the tip :-)You are welcome. Please don't hesitate posting what's good or bad on your Edge. I'm eagerly waiting for mine to arrive in 10 days...

I have this phone from couple of days, it's really an amazing phone. There is still a little bit lagging while browsing but Samsung improved a lot this time.
There is no other issue except screen lock which I am facing. The problem is that when I use finger print lock or pin lock options but phone can be unlock just swiping on the screen and there is no need to use pin or finger print to open the phone.
Can anybody check out this issue, is same thing happening with you or not?
alexus, 17 Apr 2015Dont use original fast charger use normal charger and battery will last allday i noticed thanks...
robert, 17 Apr 2015almost all high end Samsung smartphones are almost same features, like Samsung Air7 and Samsun... moreI suggest you read both tests and specifications again.
Your A7 compared to a S6 Edge has :
-less powerful cpu
-lower screen resolution
-no fingerprint sensor
-slower network speeds (both LTE and wifi)
-lesser camera (lower resolution, lower quality and less settings to tweak)
-no 4K recording (and no other modes like timelapse or slowmotion, all tunable)
That's for the quick things i noticed only by reading, not even testing both A7 and S6. And these can be applied to any comparison between Galaxy S flagships against Galaxy non S. That totally changes the experience if you are not an average user.
Extra price (and device) isn't worth it for you if you are already thinking that way.
i bought Samsung S6 Edge 32G + additional external memory 32G.. total 64G.... Superb good .. Samsung has come out with superb design,... compare to IPhone6 is much more better.. If someone ask me i would recommend to buy Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge .....I'm really enjoying with a new S6 Edge.. many features. Thank you for Samsung ..
