Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: Australian Review

Holy crap. This is the best Samsung phone ever made.

Gizmodo loves technology. Our product reviews are presented thanks to Dick Smith.

What Is It?

Specifications
  • Processor: Samsung Exynos Octa-core processor (Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2.1 GHz)
  • RAM: 3GB
  • Screen: 5.1-inch 2560x1440 (577ppi)
  • Memory: 32GB, 64GB, 128GB
  • Camera: 16-megapixel rear-facing, 5-megapixel front-facing
  • Connectivity: 4G (700MHz-2800MHz), Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi (802.11ac)

No wait, it isn't just the best Samsung phone. It's the best Android phone I've ever used.

It’s packing a 5.1-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED screen. That’s a screen resolution of 2560×1440, with 577 pixels per inch. It’s also stocked with an octa-core processor made up of a quad-core 2.1GHz processor and a quad-core 1.5Ghz processor sandwiched together to produce a stupid amount of power. That’s backed up by 3GB of RAM and a 2550mAh battery to keep it all going.

Other features include a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera — complete with Optical Image Stabilisation — a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, the same heart-rate monitor built into the flash unit from the Samsung Galaxy S5, a fingerprint scanner you no longer have to swipe your finger over and Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The S6 and the S6 Edge also have the same drawbacks: no removable battery, no expandable storage, no USB 3.0. They also share another common trait: they’re both gorgeous.

It comes in three models: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, all with the same specs under the hood. You'll pick up the 32GB S6 Edge for $1149, the 64GB model for $1299, and the the 128GB model for a whopping $1449.

Design

I’m actually quite taken with the Samsung Galaxy S6. Like, really taken with it. The model I’m reviewing absolutely has to go back to the PR agency in a few days and they will absolutely have to come and take it from me. It’s that special.

The S6 Edge is such an anomalous device. If you broke down the materials used in Samsung phones up until this one, your graph would be 99 per cent plastic and 1 per cent sadness, because that’s how you felt when you got your mitts around the S III, the S4 and the S5. The S6 Edge makes every Galaxy S device that came before this one look like a plastic lunchbox dressed up as a phone.

Samsung puts the S6 together by heating glass to incredibly high temperatures to bend it around the ultra-light metal chassis, before applying a layer of gorgeous reflective aluminium to give it colour and coating it in super-strong Gorilla Glass 3.

As a result of all the metal in the chassis and the strong glass, this thing doesn’t bend. Trust me. I tried. I put an unfriendly amount of pressure onto the device to see if I could get it to move, and it doesn’t. Gorilla Glass keeps this thing intact.

And don’t for a second think that just because it’s glass it’s going to smash into a million pieces like the iPhone 4S when you drop it. It’s lightweight and rigid so it’s not about to go to bits the first time it has a fall.

Not only is it sturdy, it’s also pretty. I’m testing the black coloured model right now, and the only time it actually looks black is when there’s no natural light shining on it whatsoever. The way Samsung has built the S6 and the S6 Edge is to have them almost shimmer and change colours slightly when natural or artificial light is applied.

I’ve seen the S6 Edge change from a deep black in no light to an intense topaz blue under fluorescents and shades in-between under UV light. It’s gorgeous, and means that your S6 Edge is rarely going to look the same colour twice.

I can’t believe the phone that came directly before this was the S5. It’s so, so much better than the S5.

When we reviewed the Galaxy S5 we complained that its direct competitor, the HTC One M8, ran rings around it in terms of design. Both are back for a rematch in the form of the One M9 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, and HTC is about to leave the ring with a bloodied nose.

While the M9 looks almost identical to the M8, the Galaxy S6 Edge looks like it was designed in a different century. Bam. Design knock-out: S6 Edge wins. The Edge only weighs 25 grams less than the M9, but you really feel the difference. The One M9’s heavy metal loses out to the sleek glass and aluminium of the S6 Edge. The One M9 loses again when it comes to screen size, being beaten out by just 0.1 inches thanks to the glorious dual edge panels.

The dual-edge screen that wraps around the bezel of the device makes the banding around the sides of the device super thin. It isn’t so thin that it’s sharp and annoying to hold like it is on the Galaxy Note Edge. Instead it feels like a wafer-thin slab of future in your hand. And the best part is that because the edge screens hang over the sides of the device, there’s no side-bezel to speak of. It’s edge-to-edge screen, and it couldn’t look any better.

Screen(s)

The S6 Edge packs in a 5.1-inch screen with a glorious 2560x1440 or 2K display with 577 pixels per inch. What does that mean in Layman’s terms? It means it’s twice as sharp as the screen in last year’s Galaxy S5. More colour, more pixels, more fun!

And then of course there’s the dual-edge screens that curve around the device.

Rather than make the edge screens on the new Galaxy their own individual panels as it was on the Note Edge, Samsung just curved the panel around the body of the unit and made it all one screen.

What’s weird is that with the screen curvature and the eye-popping resolution, it’s almost like the screen has a kind of 3D depth when viewing HD content. It’s awesome.

The edge screens aren’t just visual decoration, either: those curves are used for two things right now. On the one side you get the Information Display. It’s similar to the ticker on the Note Edge and gives you notifications, news and other relevant information.

The new features come from the other edge, known as the People Edge. On it you get five contacts, all colour-coded to a new person. It acts as a drawer you can quickly swipe open to select people to contact. On top of that, the People Edge can be used while the phone is facing down to notify you of new calls and SMS messages. When a contact gets in touch while the phone is facing down, it glows with a the subtle hue of the colour you chose for them. Based on that information, you know who’s calling and decide whether you want to answer it during a meeting.

The edge screen functionality is clever, to be sure, but it could all be better executed. For example, the Information Display doesn’t work when the screen is switched on. That sounds baffling, but stick with me.

Information Display only works when the display is sleeping, and is activated by the user rubbing the edge swiftly back and forth like Aladdin rubbing his magic lamp. From there your Genie pops up to give you everything from notifications through to news, sport and Twitter trending topic updates. It has the same problems as the edge screen on the Galaxy Note Edge, only worse. Not only is there no real point to it right now, it only works when the screen is off, which takes a useless thing and just makes it redundant.

The People Edge is a smart idea. It’s a persistent little drawer on the side of your device that you can pull out whenever you want. It’s like the people drawer in iOS’ multi-tasking window, only you know exactly where you left it and who you put in there.

The edge screens don’t just change the way you interact with the device’s software, either: it changes the entire look and feel of the device. As we mentioned earlier when talking about design, it’s amazing how the edge-to-edge wrap-around glass squashes the whole device and thins out the banding so you feel like you’re holding a super-thin, super-futuristic device.

The only other real complaint I have about the Edge screens is that they seem to pick up a huge amount of glare because of their angle. It’s not a flat panel, and your eyes are never more aware of that than when there’s a bright white light flanging its way down the peaks of your edge screen to remind you where your real screen stops and your edge screens start. That can sort of hem you in a bit, but you can push passed it with a bit of time.

Camera

I’m actually as blown away by the camera on the S6 Edge as I am with its design. It’s another one of those “how did Samsung possible make it this good?!” aspects.

The camera on the Galaxy S5 had great auto-white balance and clarity on its images, but always injected too high a contrast level into the photos and oversaturated the whole affair.

The S6 Edge camera is completely different.

It takes a gorgeous photo in just about any light. I’d almost go as far to say that it takes a better image than the iPhone 6 Plus, which to me is the best phone camera for any scenario. Beating it is something that we’ll figure out over time, but in these review images the device certainly equals the iPhone camera's performance.

Gorgeous. Blown away.

Sound

The sound is where the S6 loses to its main rival, the One M9.

The HTC One M8 ran rings around last year’s Galaxy S5 for sound, and now that the rematch is on, the result is still the same. The S6 Edge’s speakers are tiny, tinny and should be avoided at all costs. If you have any money left after buying the thing, invest in a cool Bluetooth speaker like the UE Boom to get the most out of your music.

Software

The software is another slam dunk. Samsung looks to be letting go of its TouchWiz obsession, shipping the S6 Edge into the market with what looks to be as close as we’ve ever had to stock Android 5.0 Lollipop. Proprietary menus are long gone, gaudy icons are sleek and stock and the only thing that’s really there to bother you is the perpetual Flipboard Briefing screen on the far left of the device.

When you have a little play with it, it feels like Samsung made another Nexus, but, dig a little deeper and you find the TouchWiz beast lurking to make life more than a little annoying for you.

While it might look and feel that Samsung has pulled back on the bloatware pre-installed on the S6 and S6 Edge, it’s a little more complicated than that under the hood.

At first glance, the new S6 and S6 Edge appear to be less cluttered, but you’ll actually find some 56 applications pre-installed. That’s 6 more than the 50 you’ll find on the Galaxy Note 4! Between the Google Apps you’ll find on every phone (Play Newstand? Come on), Samsung’s apps like S Voice and S Health, the new Microsoft apps like OneDrive (intended to soften the blow of no microSD slot), assorted social apps like Whatsapp and Instagram and carrier apps, there’s a lot of cruft. A Moto G I have hanging around — which runs near stock Android — starts with just 33.

And despite statements from Samsung that “Samsung has allowed users to remove the pre-installed applications on Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge“, the most severe action you can take is “disabling” them. This removes them from the app drawer and the homescreen, but not from the phone entirely. You’re basically opting instead to put them in a sort of stasis, out of sight but not out of storage.

So what is different from last time around, software-wise? Not much. The new Lollipop version of Samsung’s TouchWiz Android skin makes it slightly less painful to disable apps in rapid succession. You can disable the calculator on the S6, which you couldn’t on the Note 4. But that’s about it. Minor, minor stuff. This is, for the most part, the same old bloat despite all our wild hopes.

Samsung made the following tweaks to its statement when I asked for a little clarification:

Simplicity is critical for usability and functionality, so Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge offer a refined and optimised user experience and the offering of core and preloaded apps has been streamlined. Some apps can be uninstalled while some can be disabled, and this varies by region and carrier. Further, 40% of the features and steps have been deleted compared to previous models.

Weaaaaaak.

That’s not to say there aren’t improvements though. The newest version of TouchWiz is slimmer and slicker and prettier than it’s ever been. The extras Samsung puts around the actual operating system are less intrusive than ever, and in some ways actually make Android better. Samsung surfaces things like a media volume slider, which stock Android inexplicably buries.

The annoying new-phone chore of disabling all the bloatware apps is also at least slightly simpler than it has been in the past. The new UI makes it a four or five minute task as opposed to a seven or eight minute one if you’re going so far as to disable the apps and dive into settings to delete all their stored data. Even if you don’t, the bloatware doesn’t take up that much room; not more than 100 MB or so as far as I can tell. That’s a whole ton in the 32GB-at-minimum (but-more-like-24GB-once-you account-for-system-files-and-whatnot) scheme of things.

But the S6 was supposed to be a close-to-stock dream come true, and having to deal with any of this cruft at all is a pain in the arse that makes Samsung’s sweet new redesigned phone seem like a budget offering, crammed with excess software to help keep the price down.

That’s a terrific way to make a great phone feel gross right out of the box.

Pricing

I hope you're ready to empty your wallets: the Galaxy S6 Edge is super expensive.

How expensive, you ask? Well, to put what you're about to read into perspective, take this into account. The Galaxy S6 Edge's less curvy sibling, the Galaxy S6 starts at $999 and goes right up to $1299 for the 128GB model. The S6 Edge because of all its bendy bits starts at $1149.

That's right: you'll pick up the 32GB S6 Edge for $1149, the 64GB model for $1299, and the the 128GB model for a whopping $1449.

$1449.

Sure, that's the same price as the iPhone 6 Plus, but that's still a stupid thing. Both companies are charging too much money for these gadgets.

What’s Not So Good?

We’ve talked a lot about what’s good about the S6 Edge, but there are some clear drawbacks that may rule this out of contention for some people.

There’s no microSD card slot, which sucks from Samsung which has taunted its competitor — Apple — for not having the same thing for ages. It’s going to turn a lot of people off, even though Samsung is throwing in 100GB of Microsoft OneDrive storage to make up for it.

Just on that bonus offer too: does anyone on Android use Microsoft OneDrive? Maybe if you’re a very forward-thinking cross-platform user, but not if you’ve been on Android your whole life. You’ll be a Google Drive user! I hate to look a gift horse in the mouth here, but what’s the point of free storage space to a service nobody really uses?

Then there’s the fact that there’s no removable battery. Every Samsung phone I’ve had for more than a year has started to have battery problems. The company assures us it has it right this year, but only time will tell. It’s enough of a worry to keep some people away, I’m sure.

And finally, Samsung has ditched the waterproof and dustproof aspect of the device, so it’s still just as susceptible to water as ever. If you want an Android flagship that you can immerse in liquid, look Sony’s way.

Should You Buy It?

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

Price: from $1149

Like
  • Beautiful design, insanely light.
  • Amazingly sharp screen.
  • Great camera.
Don't Like
  • Punishingly expensive.
  • No longer waterproof.
  • No removable battery or expandable storage.

Absolutely. If you have the money and can justify the purchase, you’ll be getting the absolute best that Samsung and Android have to offer.

It’s not so much a return to form for Samsung with the S6 Edge: it’s an entirely new thing, completely out of left field.

It’s brilliant software, a gorgeous screen, an amazing camera and a battery that goes for two whole days, wrapped up in a light, futuristic, sexy package.

Get one.

Comments

    I use onedrive for al my photos and documents. Google drive is on automatically, but I prefer one drive as I still use one of many hotmail or outlook emails

    I wonder what sort of case would you need to protect your SGS 6 Edge. Will you even need one? No amount of Gorilla glass tech is going to fool me into thinking the phone's indestructable from keys and a 1.5 metre fall onto concrete.

    Both companies are charging too much money for these gadgets.

    What do you base that claim on?
    What should they be charging for it, and again, what are you basing that on?

    I understand they are both expensive, more than I would like to pay, and Apple makes a bloody good profit while Samsung is hurting. However unless something is just insanely over the top, saying what a company should or shouldn’t charge for its own product without having a solid reason how you came up with that argument is baseless. Calling them “gadgets” is a disservice to all the tech and work involved.
    The fact they sell millions of these things would say that they aren’t charging too much. The underpaid overworked labour would argue that they should charge more.

      I would love to see a break down of what it costs Apple and Samsung to make the 2 phones mentioned.

        See this for iPhone 6 - http://www.techinsights.com/teardown.com/apple-iphone-6/

        Of course any breakdown is pretty irrelevant when it comes to the retail price of a product, since they don't take into account the R&D costs. Software costs next to nothing to manufacture, yet we still can pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for it.

    I like that Samsung has stepped up to produce an interesting phone for the first time in a while (they became a bit of an unexciting allrounder). It doesn't really have a standout piece of functionality, but the construction is every bit as gorgeous as HTC's.

    But as a guy who takes lots of RAW photos, I'm kinda sad at the exclusion of the sd slot. It's.not even missing for waterproofing reasons.

    I'll sit this cycle of phones out, but it's cool to see manufacturing taking good steps forward.

      Indeed.
      I'm in the market for a new phone, but the lack of SD card and replaceable battery rollout the S6 series. Oh well, the S5 or Note 4 will have to do...

    Usually love the reviews on here but this one seems a bit lacking, a lot of the content in this review is just cut and paste from other articles which is made obvious with "you’ll pick up the 32GB S6 Edge for $1149, the 64GB model for $1299, and the the 128GB model for a whopping $1449." where "the" is used twice repeatedly twice in this article and the same mistake is present in yesterday's article detailing the pricing of the edge.
    On another note, the Galaxy S6/Edge both use Corning Gorilla Glass 4, not 3 as specified in the review.
    I'm excited for this phone and like @amfomy, I share the same concerns for how it's gonna look inside a case.

      it's so expensive it needs its own announcement.. as in..

      The "The 128gb Model"

      like... The "The Rock!"

    Preordered mine on Telstra, can't wait. After using Windows since WM6.1 and choosing WP over Android due to its smoother and (imo) better looking UI, i've finally decided its time to ship due to the improved hardware we now have and optimisations/UI tweaks google has done to Android making it look somewhat better looking (flat metro-ish UI) and run butter smooth. Can't wait. Onedrive and OneNote will definitely be of great use to me :D

    Yo Luke, Gorilla Glass 4 is in that thing!

    I don't understand why people whinge about no more removable storage when the majority probably order the smallest capacity phone and stick no more than a 16 or 32gb class 4 card in it. Just order a large storage capacity phone! It's a simple compromise.

    Last edited 31/03/15 3:43 pm

      Maybe because adds so much more to the already-crazy price? The 64GB model is an extra $150(!!) compared to under $20 for a 32GB add-on microSD. And I could buy *two* 128GB microSD cards - and be able to swap between them - for the upgrade cost of the 128GB model.

        Adding extra memory (in the form of s microSD card) is slow... run some benchmarks on your additonal memory. However, when you are talking about built-in (internal) memory you will be getting very fast transfer rates (both read and write).

        I have a 64GB microSD card that is rated by the manufacturer (Samsung) to have a transfer rate of 90MB per second. This is the theoretical read speed. When I benchmarked it, the read speed comes in at around 65MB p/s. The write speed comes it at an abysmal at 15MB p/s.

        I am betting that having a larger internal memory is going to improve the phones performance, especially when you are taking photos.

        If you really need more memory but do not want to fork out extra dollars, then get the 32GB version phone and invest in an OTG (On The Go) USB memory stick. That's what I'll be doing.

          Surely OTG + USB dongles would be just as slow - and highly awkward to carry around and use regularly as well.

          I agree faster internal storage is important for apps etc, but much of my phone's space is taken up with music, photos and video, none of which need high speeds. I'd much rather have large amounts of cheap storage always with me than have to manage an OTG dongle and stick, or have to pay through the nose for it.

          Honestly, I don't understand the confusion here. Internal storage is good, but internal + cheap expandable storage via microSD is surely better in every way. What advantage is there in *not* having microSD?

      Well the difference between the 32gb and 128gb model is 300 wingwangs. A 128gb class 10 micro sd is what, 130?

        you enjoy 15mb/s write to your Micro SD? you must love USB 1.0 speed too then? or bluetooth transfers? lol I for one was one of those SD card users, can't stand it anymore once you get used to the speed (ie HDD vs SSD) difference.

      Got a note 4 and love my sd card support, I've only got a 32gb class10 sd card, but it means I have a bunch of movies and music on the sd card for when I'm travelling or just driving around. And sd cards will matter until mobile data gets better, the new plans will help for streaming but won't help me when away from home on the old plans. My local cache of my google play music data is 24gb alone. Plus a few movies at 720p to save space and bam that's my sd card full. And still got internal for photos.

      Because it takes away one more reason they can scoff at the iPhone? :)

    Hmm.. ok I haven't seen an S6 Edge up close myself, but apart from the slick-looking but apparently non-useful curved edges (do they make holding it awkward?) and a nice metal back (finally), it sounds a lot like every other flagship phone in the last year.

    Compared to e.g. the LG G3, the S6 has a similar size/res screen, comparable CPU, same RAM, similar OIS camera (a little better?), same wifi etc. You get a really pretty case, AMOLED screen, a fingerprint scanner and a heart rate monitor, but you lose the so-useful microSD slot, IR blaster and huge, exchangeable battery that the G3 has, not to mention the G3's much better speaker and laser focus. And Touchwiz still haunts the edges, while I'd be driven mad by the backwards back/menu buttons.

    And then there's the price. Even the base 32GB S6E costs well over *twice* the 32GB G3. That's a heck of a lot of money to add to all that usefulness you're trading away for a sexy body.

      You seem happy with buying a G3? Then go buy one. It's ugly and the LG skin is horrible. (worst than Touchwiz or Sense, and they call these horrendous compared to AOSP)

        Bought one months ago. I think it's the best value full-featured phone on the market right now.

        I certainly agree its body isn't as pretty as the new S6 (far from ugly though IMHO), but I *much* prefer the LG skin to Touchwiz - it's a lot lighter, and I can get it a lot closer to stock. No doubt some people are happy to spend an extra $600-800 for good looks and no microSD slot, but I've got better things to do with that much cash.

    The Edge has a 2600mah battery, the regular S6 has 2550mah. So what's the battery life like with constant web browsing?

    Wonder what the battery life will be, most likely not much different from the s5 considering efficiencies have been made in certain technologies and more beef has been packed into the phone. It's sad that technology is continuing to grow at exponential rates yet battery tech is at a standstill.

    I’ve seen the S6 Edge change from a deep black in no light to an intense topaz blue under fluorescents and shades in-between under UV light. It’s gorgeous, and means that your S6 Edge is rarely going to look the same colour twice.

    Hugely important in a phone.

      Hugely important in a phone.

      Yeah, since it's pretty much proven that people don't care what their phone looks like. Or, you know... not.

    It's like trying to sell a Kia Rio for twice the price between models.

    Stick to cheap, Samsung. The only people buying in the high-end are iPhone users.

      Haha you must live in a rock

        In a rock, eh? I tend to agree that Android users aren't going to be forking out almost $1.5K for their phones. It's damn near laughable.

          Android phone have always come out costing as much as the new iphones -when you get the top models. Many times they've cost a bit more. And people have bought them.
          I suspect that pbnj is just a dedicated troll.

            Many people buy the high end Androids after a couple of months because they start dropping price on the outright cost and on plans as well. There's only a handful of rich kids who decide its actually worth dishing out $1k on an Android that will never see a decent resell price after a year. I agree with comments by @pbnj and @shaun2k. Androids are popular because their flexible functionality and price are agreeable to the majority of people.

              Mostly price.

              Average users (who account for the majority of smartphone users) don't care about customisation and flexibility. Most never change anything beyond the background of their phone or the ringtone.

              If Apple released a phone as cheap as the highest selling Android devices, you would see market share shift dramatically. The bulk of Android users are people who can't/won't justify the cost of an iPhone.

              In the high end bracket, you are not going to have people lining up around the block for an S6.

                Generally agreed. However, one aspect of people not lining up for an S6 is because even at the flagship level in Android there are at least 4 companies offering awesome phones which fractures that fanboi lining up potential.

              The price drop hasn't really been much of a factor in recent years unfortunately and resale value of top modelsfrom HTC and Samsung has bee pretty good for the last couple of years.
              There are a LOT of reasons people buy Adroids or iphones, Those include style, functionality, features, price, investment in the ecosystem etc.
              The characterisation you're talking about is a little out of date.

    It looks so gorgeous! The body is gorgeous, as well as the photos.

    I can't believe how gorgeous it is

    Gorilla Glass 4 my dude, no snark, just an edit for ya.

    Nope I don't use Google Drive. Have a 1TB Dropbox account. I prefer OneDrive to Google Drive,

    A few questions:

    Does it have an inbuilt file manager?
    Does it have inbuilt network sharing?
    What instant messaging solutions does it have built in?
    How is call quality? (I'm not sure if this is pertinent to a phone review)
    How effectively does Android make use of all those cores, given that it's using a unified memory architecture?
    What's the battery life like? (I'm not sure if this is pertinent to a phone review)

      If you want an in-depth review, I would suggest to check with anandtech (just google it)

    Well, it seems like Samsung is starting to get the message that QUALITY is more important than quantity - it's why the iPhones are so popular. However there is more than just the quality of the phone itself that drives their popularity, there is also the quality of the support behind them. Once Samsung nails that then I will seriously consider switching from my current iPhone 6.

    It means it’s twice as sharp as the screen in last year’s Galaxy S5. More colour, more pixels, more fun!
    More battery drain to push all those pixels on your screen!

    Proprietary menus are long gone, gaudy icons are sleek and stock
    Lets also give Samsung credit for now adding the ability for users to download themes for further customisation. Sure, HTC did it first, but as long as Samsung has addressed this issue its all good. HTC's Sense never looked as ugly as Samsung's TouchWiz.

    This removes them from the app drawer and the homescreen, but not from the phone entirely. You’re basically opting instead to put them in a sort of stasis, out of sight but not out of storage.
    True, but by at least disabling them they wont be constantly running and chewing on RAM and battery unnecessarily.

    Just on that bonus offer too: does anyone on Android use Microsoft OneDrive? Maybe if you’re a very forward-thinking cross-platform user, but not if you’ve been on Android your whole life. You’ll be a Google Drive user!
    Yes, I use OneDrive, Box and Google Drive to back up my photos and videos. I dont like to put all my stuff in one basket, so I have them backed up in 3 services. Especially since now I have about 130GB on OneDrive, 27GB on Google Drive, and I think I have 20GB on Box. I also have Dropbox, but that mainly has documents on it, and only have about 5GB on that.

    Is this the new iPhone?
    Wow Apple make good products.

    It actually feels better to hold backwards, with the curved glass against your palm.

    The back should have been the curve and the front a flat glass screen. Try it out for yourself.

    How does the edge of the S6 one compare to that of the Note edge? When I saw the S6 in store, it appeared that there was no edge to the screen really, that it was more the glass was curved and the screen just went up to the far edge of the curve, where the Note edge actually seemed to have a bit more of a curved screen. I couldn't do a side by side but I did feel a bit disappointed at how flat the S6 edge screen actually was. It's a great concept and I was really excited, but I do recommend people see it in person just in case they end up underwhelmed like I was
