Samsung continues to push boundaries with premium Galaxy smartphones that offer users the best in media consumption and the ultimate in productivity.

Engineers took on the challenge to combine glass and metal in one timeless piece achieved through advanced technological research. The thin and beautiful, yet strong device is typified by an expertly crafted frame from premium metal (Aluminum 7000 alloy) and the toughest glass (Gorilla Glass® 4). The S6 Edge Plus demonstrates beautiful form and materials with purposeful technology innovation to deliver true value and usability to consumers.

    lm struggling to use it! It is my first S chakuti galaxy phone having used the Galaxy Note version 1 to 5. l couldnt find a Note 6 on my desired colour so l went for the s6 edge. Its a very good phone but there is something missing considering that lm used to the Note range.

    l find the edge display very handy though especially at night. One day it banged on the hard surface face down. l picked it up expecting cracked screen like my previous note 4! Every time l think about it now whilst walking, l put it back straight it secure pocket.

    Very interesting article you have here but I want to understand why you are reviewing the s6 edge + right now when we have the cutting edge s7 /edge to play with

    1. Macd Chip says:

      That cutting edge is not yet in their hands and no telco or tech company in Zim can borrow you one for a review

  3. Trey says:

    Why are you reviewing the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge when there is now a recent version of the phone, the S7. Let stale news be.

    1. Macd Chip says:

      You can review only what is in your hands to feel the experience and validate your opinion.

      Smart move l would say

    2. Beatnyama says:

      Had it not been for your comment, in my mind i’m thinking they are reviewing the S7 Edge. Damn. Didn’t that phone come out like a year ago (the S6 Edge Plus?)

  4. J Stevens says:

    It came out last August if memory serves.
