Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is an incredible Android cellphone released in April 2015, which features a very fast Octa-Core CPU (it's actually a Quad-Core at 2.1 GHz and a Quad-Core ticking at 1.5 gigahertz), a pretty large 5.1 inches display, a 16 megapixels back side camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera. Let's take a closer view of what this cellphone can give us.

Regarding its aspect, the S6 Edge is built with Glass and Aluminium, which gives it a high quality finish and improved resistance. This phone is quite a compact device, taking into account that it presents a 5.1" display and it's just 5.59" long and 2.76 inches wide. This device has a beautiful design, with a thickness of just 0.28 inches. This cellphone feels much lighter than what one would expect from a cellphone of this size. Samsung offers this device in many different color variations: black, green, white and gold.

This phone has a great 5.1-inches screen with a 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, which makes everything look perfect. Its screen uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

Samsung decided to power this phone using a Exynos 7 Octa 7420 system chip, backed up by a high speed 64-bit Octa-Core processing unit (actually, it has a Quad-Core clocking at 2.1 GHz and an additional Quad-Core at 1500 megahertz) with a big 3 GB of RAM. To help with graphic rendering, it also counts with a 650 MHz Mali-T760 MP8 GPU. The S6 Edge counts with an excellent 128 GB internal memory and though it doesn't have an SD memory card expansion slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without even thinking about filling it.

This cellphone has wi-fi connectivity (which it can share with other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G super fast connectivity and 3G fast data connection, using HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

This device has two cameras, a 16 megapixels back side camera and a 5 MP front side camera. Its back side camera has a f/1.9 aperture so it can shoot impressive photos even in poor lighting conditions. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge also films videos up to 3840x2160 (4K). In addition, this phone's camera also features a large number of great features like auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, optical image stabilization, face detection shooting, smile detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This phone also includes a wide variety of useful characteristics as Biometric fingerprint, Wireless charger compatibility, NFC, Infrared Port, Bluetooth (4.1) and GPS, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This device uses a 2600 mAh long lasting non-replaceable battery that provides the S6 Edge a marvelous battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that the S6 Edge's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it begins to lose capacity, even though with such a big battery you will probably buy a new cellphone before that becomes a real problem.

Samsung sells the S6 Edge for $ 950, which is a really high price for a phone this level. No matter whether you are looking for a phone for gaming, are looking for a device to mostly use social networks and internet browsing, are a photography fan or need a device for work, you will definitely be very happy with this phone.
