This can push the techie in any of us over the “Edge”
– Editor : Jason “The Bok” –
A couple weeks back I was sent Samsung’s latest flagship device the 128 GB Galaxy S6 Edge series. Not only is this device an incredibly good looker, it weighs a mere 138g and is slim enough and smooth enough to fit beautifully in the tightest of spaces.
The device features a 5.1inch eye popping 577ppi display which is composed of Corning Gorilla Glass 4. This brings to life all images, and the AMOLED display technology makes and colour pop right out at you! The device comes loaded out of the box running Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, and this coupled with its snappy Exynos 7420 processor makes using this device under any situation a breeze.
The phone also features 3 GB RAM, so processing of multiple applications and gaming is also a totally fluid experience. For your location based services, the device features GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS support.
The unit which I was sent came in a colour known as ” Black Sapphire,” this deep ocean blue/black shade compliments the device amazingly well, and makes it stand out even further from the crowd, as if the edge display was not enough of a show piece.
When it comes to operation, the device is fitted with a non user removable 2600 MAh battery which only managed to get me eight to ten hours of heavy usage on any given day, I am however hopeful that this will be improved with a further software update. On the plus side of the battery performance, the device does feature quick charge and is able to get from zero to fifty percent battery within your first cup of cocoa.
