Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review

 

One of the best phones out made better

Great screen ; Superb camera ; Low price for phablet

Battery life poor ; Edge screens not well used ; Easy to hit the screen accidentally

A superb phone for those in love with phablets - this is aesethetics combined with stellar performance at a decent price... just a shame the battery still suffers.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review: the best phone just got better

 

It's a bigger S6 Edge and that's awesome

Quality screen ; Strong camera ; Iconic design

Battery life not brilliant ; Edge tab under-used ; Slippery

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Plus review: The edge of reason - Pocket-lint

 

It's radical, it's a head-turner, and it's certainly not for everyone. As much as we love the S6 edge+, it kind of leaves us pining for a Note 5 at this

It's head-turningly incredible to look at, fast user experience without overheating, better battery life than S6 edge, great camera results, excellent fingerprint scanner

Screen vignette, no microSD slot, limited edge functionality compared to Note Edge, slow shutter speed nuisance, very expensive

As the big brother to the already excellent S6 edge, the edge+ gets off to a flying start, showing off visual design flair like no other.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review

 

In the absence of the Note 5, the S6 Edge+ is the best Android phablet around, but at current prices it's just not good value for money

With its top class performance and superb camera, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ rightly deserves its title as the best Android phablet since the Note 4. However, when its specs are nigh-on identical to the regular S6 Edge, it can't help but feel like a rather...

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review

 

Samsung's Edge experience gets bigger and better - a seriously desirable smartphone...

Gorgeous screen Premium, compact build Great video performance Punchy, exciting audio with high-res support Strong camera

Expensive No expandable storage

The overall premise of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is very simple – to bring a bigger screen to the Edge experience. There’s not a lot more to it, but that's no bad thing – it's still as desirable in both looks and performance, with a few additions...

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

 

Samsung has made a bold statement with its Galaxy S6 range of smartphones. Plastic painted as metal and faux leather backs have been consigned to Room 101 and Samsung has finally put style and design at the core of its smartphone offering.

Stunningly beautiful ; Fantastic screen ; Decent battery life ; Speedy performance ; Great camera

Tricky to handle ; Hugely expensive ; Lacks Note features

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review

 

You'll need a thick chunk of wedge for this brilliant Edge

Superb screen ; Sublime camera ; High quality build and design

High price ; No IR transmitter

More than a blown-up S6 Edge, this big-screen beauty is also a worthy follow-up to the Note 4

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review

 

Do we really need a bigger edge screen phone?

At £700 the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a seriously expensive phone, and we were happy enough with the size of the regular model. If you do want a larger version then great and the increased memory and bigger battery are nice upgrades. However, the IR blaster...

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ review - hands on

 

The S6 Edge+ is bigger, but is it better than the regular S6 Edge?

In terms of size, I feel as though Samsung has got the S6 Edge+ just right. It fits neatly in the hand, but gives you plenty of screen space. Its excellent built quality and fast CPU make this one of the most desirable phones that I’ve laid eyes on....
