Samsung have unveiled the inherently refreshed Galaxy S6 Edge, their latest flagship that not only sports a premium built quality but also have a dual curve screen, which was only a mere concept few years back. If, with this beautiful bezel-less look, you are wondering what its cool features are, then we have got you covered. Find out what all cool things that Samsung has to offer on its latest flagship.
Well, you can’t ignore the fact that all metal body of the new Galaxy S6 Edge isn’t the talk of the tech talk town. But, what’s more, exciting about this device is its Gorilla Glass 4 protection. It is present not only on the display, but has been put on the back of the device, which makes this whole body a nearly scratch resistant. Other than the fact that it is Quad HD display, the curved screen on both sides of the display makes it even more unique and appealing to the audience. It is very classy and is worth gawking at. It’s hardware buttons flow well with the design, as the power button is placed on the right, and volume buttons on the left making it easier to reach.
It is established that two Edge screen looks way cooler than one, but it gets more amazing once you learn what these screens can do. You can directly swipe from any edge screen and should see your favourite list of contacts. Therefore, you don’t have to go through all the clutters to call, message or eve mail your favourite contacts. Well, that might be convenient, but the cool thing about this feature is that it also allows assigns a different colors to the favourite contacts in the list. And it will glow whenever a notification comes, you would be easily able to understand from whom it is, as the contacts are color coded. Moreover, if the device is lying upside down on the desk, you can notice the color and decide whether to pick up the phone or not. Interesting, right.
While everybody’s talking about how crazy and ridiculously cool, it’s dual-screen looks. Many might have ignored the fact that it is just 6.8mm thin. Yes, it is true, even with all metal body and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, Samsung managed to make it slimmer than most of the flagships. For instance, iPhone 6 Plus has a thickness of 7.1mm, and we can’t deny that it was shocking when the bent gate news hit the market, as Apple may have compromised the quality or its design. On the other hand, Samsung also have a unibody design, and it may have its own drawbacks too, but it can’t be denied that the S6 Edge feels exquisite in the hand.
Samsung has introduced its wireless payment service, the Samsung Pay, which would be directly rivalling against the Apple Pay. This service is currently being offered exclusively only on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Though, company’s payment service won’t come until this summer and would be available in the United States and South Korea at first.
Samsung Pay will work with only NFC-enabled payment machines. But Samsung is supplementing NFC with technology from LoopPay, which it is buying. The LoopPay replicates the magnetic-strip signals on plastic cards, which would allow it to work with more merchants.
If you thought, the non-removable battery was a bummer for S6. But you do, however, get this wireless charging feature on S6, which was absent on S5 and Note 4. All thanks to the support of WPC and PMA certified wireless charging technology, which means you don’t have to deal with the pesky wires anymore. Additionally, the wireless charging has been improved, it is 1.5 times faster than the external wireless charging pad that comes with Samsung Galaxy S5, which would give you approximately 4 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charge.
