Review: How is it using the Galaxy S6 edge more than a year later?

2015 saw a drastic change in Samsung’s vision for its smartphones. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge brought the company’s flagship lineup into the big league in terms of design; Samsung did away with the plastic bodies and substituted them with one that incorporates glass and metal for an extremely premium look and feel. Of course, those curves on the Galaxy S6 edge were another major attraction, and that phone was probably the most beautiful smartphone of all time when it launched last year. Samsung also overhauled TouchWiz, making it smoother, faster and hiccup-free and more pleasing to the eye as well.

Not everything was rosy, however. Their premium designs didn’t leave much room for large batteries, and Samsung decided it would make up for that by offering wireless and fast charging. There was no microSD slot either, limiting users to 32GB and 64GB of storage (the 128GB model was extremely hard to get), depending on which variant they managed to get their hands on. But other than these limitations, the S6 and S6 edge were at the top of the game and a welcome departure from Samsung’s pre-2015 smartphones.

With the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung improved on everything it introduced with the S6 and S6 edge, including putting in larger batteries and adding features like fast wireless charging to the mix. Then came the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge – these phones brought back the microSD slot, had really big batteries (at least the S7 edge did) and cameras with amazing low-light capabilities, and were also water resistant. If there was ever a thing called a perfect smartphone, you could argue the S7 and S7 edge came closest to the definition.
