Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
This more expensive version of the Galaxy S6 banks it all on looks. It performs just as well as its cousin in every task we threw at it, but the few software gimmicks that make use of the Edge's beautiful curved display just don't do much to justify the extra cost. Buy it for its looks, not because it's any more functional.

It feels premium in the hand and has all the specs under the hood. And there is something about that edge that is... euphoric.Engadget Reader90May 10, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Excelente review!!!!! Aqui vÃ³s deixo uma em PT caso queiram comparar.http://newesc.com/pt/review-samsung-s6-edge-preco-caracteristicas-portugal/Engadget Reader100May 5, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I chose the 64GB Edge. The edges create a very cool infinite pool kind of effect which I really enjoy. Even though features are lacking, there are things that make you feel good when you hole this phone compared to other phones.The 14nm fabrication with UFS 2 storage and DDR4 make this an incredibly fast experience. But the battery seems to have some issue. Compared to my old Galaxy S4 and iPhone 6, it does't last longer in fact, the life is shorter. Right now I can go 7am to 10pm and still have about 15% left with my average use. But you can go full day with this. With added wireless charging and especially fast charge, I don't have too much problems with it. Make sure you use the benefit of fast charge. It is simply the best thing you can have on your phone right now.And you can't forget the camera. Having iPhone 6, I can say that the Samsung cameras are top notch. The iPhone 6 was great, but sadly it lacked control over it. It is like a camera that just needs little bit of light and bam! take the greatest picture I have experienced in Phones.Engadget Reader60April 26, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The Galaxy S6 Edge is a stunning and great phone - when it works as advertised. The single speaker outputs a surprising amount of sound, the display is absolutely stunning, and the performance is generally excellent. The biggest downside to this phone is dealing with Samsung support if there is a problem. For example, you may find yourself having the well known auto-rotate problem with the phone that even a hard reset does not fix.Their support pretends to be clueless on the problem and that you are the only person in the world to ever report it. Samsung thinks it is okay to have to send the phone to them and be without it for 2 weeks, despite them having known about this issue since day 1. They should not be knowingly selling defective devices and expecting people to mail them a phone for a device that was defective out of the box unless they are going to provide an immediate replacement. For a phone of this price, anything less is unacceptable.No doubt if your phone functions fine and never develops the problem, you will greatly enjoy the phone. If you are worried about the high probability of needing to deal with Samsung's subpar customer support, go for the vanilla S6 which does not seem to have any majorly reported problems.meringo90April 21, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The phone lives up to the hype. I chose the 64GB Edge version on Verizon. The edges create a very cool infinite pool kind of effect which I really enjoy. I know edge features are lacking, but I see this as just a well executed design element. No need for fancy, likely useless features to muck it up.The new class leading SoC, combined with UFS 2 storage and DDR4 make this an incredibly zippy experience. Since visual appeareance and performance are both top notch with this, the only complaints could come from the software - including the battery issues. It seems as though most of the battery drain problems being reported can be fixed with software updates. Right now I can go 8am to 8pm and still have about 15% left with my average use.O, and the camera. I was lucky enough to have an iPhone 6 Plus before this. I by no means needed to upgrade, but had the opportunity to try something new. As a photographer rocking a 60D with a small collection of glass, I can say that the Samsung camera is top notch in the cell phone arena. The iPhone was great, but lacked control. The "auto" settings aren't as good on the Samsung, but the camera can perform noticeably better using manual controls.If you want an Android phone, get it. It's by far the best option out there.Engadget Reader90April 17, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - Engadget
