After 48 hours or so with the Galaxy S6 edge, I'm more than impressed. It's a no brainer for me to recommend the S6 edge to anyone who is in the market for a new smartphone. The S6 edge is a no holds barred smartphone of pure luxury, something that can finally compete against the iPhone in a way that Samsung has never been able to do before.
Last night, I found myself marveling at the S6 edge. Just rolling it over in my hand, glossing over its beautifully smooth Gorilla Glass 4 protected display, and its just-as-smooth backing. The sides are kept together with a super solid metal, which also gives the S6 edge an insanely gorgeous finish. The edge screen itself may not be super useful, but holy hell does it look amazing. It's a smartphone that catches your eye, and it's something you don't want to put down once it's in your hand. I can't say that about any other smartphone I've used, and I have used nearly every flagship pumped out.
Apple makes great phones, they really do. The iPhone is a beautifully engineered smartphone, but it's so heavily flawed. iOS is just such an Apple wrapped garden that I can't enter it. Android is customizable, but Samsung used to throw in its ball and chain TouchWiz UI, which ruined the entire experience. This isn't the case with the S6 edge, in both the hardware and software.
This is a completely new direction for Samsung. It's exciting, and it gives me faith for the future of the South Korean giant. The S6 edge almost feels like it's too new. It's too raw. Every review that I've read of it glosses over it, which is so weird to see for Samsung. Normally every iPhone review is "the best iPhone yet", "marvelous 10/10", "Apple does it again", but these same people are saying very similar things about the Galaxy S6 edge.
Why? Because it's true. The Galaxy S6 edge is Samsung's very best smartphone yet. It is the new Lamborghini of smartphones. It feels so fresh and so new that it feels like Samsung has reached out into the future by 2-3 years, and pulled something back through time and space, and released it as the S6 edge. I'm head over heels in love with the Galaxy S6 edge, which is something I really didn't think I would be saying just a few weeks ago. The S6 edge is a remarkable fusion of great design, next-gen technology, and a stripped raw and improved handset that Samsung should be very, very proud of.
