Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 Edge+ has a 5.7 inch display and is more of a phablet than a smartphone. Last year Samsung launched two note devices one was with edge and other one was without the edge curved display.
This year Samsung has changed the strategy and instead of launched a Note 5 Edge (with the curved display) has instead extended the Samsung S6 Edge to 5.7 inch phablet design.
The new Samsung Edge+ offers great performance, camera, design and a large size screen for power users.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge are almost identical in Specs and features, barring the S-Pen on the Note 5 and the curved edge display which is their only on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus – What is new in the S6 Edge Plus that was not there in the Samsung Edge?
The Edge+ offers a bigger display 5.7 inch compared to the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge’s 5.2 inch. The battery capacity has been bumped up in the Samsung S6 Edge+ to 5.7 inches. The screen is Super AMOLED and has a 2K Quad HD (2560*1440) resolution with 518 PPI.
The edge screen comes with features like people edge which lets you quickly connect with people from the edged screen. It also has Edge Apps which lets you quickly launch your favorites apps quickly from the edged display.
The Samsung Galaxy Edge+ is powered by the Samsung Exynos 7420 Octa-Core processor clocked at 2.2 Ghz. It is manufactured using 14 Nm process and is world’s most advanced mobile chipset. The processor is accompanied by the LPDDR4 RAM – 4GB which again is much better and faster than the LPDDR3 Ram that comes on most other smartphones.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ runs on the latest Android OS lollipop along with the touch wiz UI. The battery capacity on the Smartphone is 15% more compared to the Galaxy S6 with a size of 3000 mAH. The only low point I felt with the Galaxy S6 was the low battery capacity which Samsung has rectified in the S6 Edge+.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has support for faster 4G LTE advanced network and offer upto 300 MBPS data speeds theoretically. The smartphone does support the native 3G/HSPA/2G/Edge data connectivity options as well.
The Rear Camera on the S6 Edge+ is 16 MP with optical image stabilization and quick auto- focus with f/1.9 aperture. The camera is the same what we saw on the Samsung S6, and has a really good lens.
The Front camera is 5 MP with wide angle and ability to click great photographs even in the low light scenarios.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus youtube App allows you to stream the videos directly from native App to the Youtube directly.The Samsung S6 Edge+ has quick charging and wireless charging feature which helps it to get charged really quickly.
