Review: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge for Sprint
To put it simply, Samsung killed it with the Galaxy S6 Edge. This is by far the company's best effort. It's well designed and well made with quality materials. The phone is a winner in most respects.
The metal and glass design lends a premium feel to the Edge not previously available from Samsung's lineup. The phone is small and light enough to use comfortably, and the quad HD screen will knock your socks off. Some may be put off by the locked-in battery and lack of memory card, but these are acceptable trade-offs to me to gain such an attractive phone.
The phone was a star performer on Sprint's network in terms of both data and voice calls. Battery life is maybe the weakest link in the Edge's armor, but it's not a deal-breaker by any stretch. The Quick Charge feature works as advertised and being able to drop it on any wireless charging pad is a bonus. (It might be time to invest in one.) The curved Edge Screen isn't as useful as on the Note Edge, but it gives the S6 Edge a boost in personality.

Samsung and Sprint stuffed the phone to the max with unwanted and unneeded apps, but they all work perfectly thanks to the zippy processor. The camera does a fantastic job and the new camera app is a joy to use. With advanced features such as Samsung Pay coming in a few months, there's hardly anything the S6 Edge can't do.
If you're in the market for a premium Android phone, this is the one to get. Sure, it's pricey, and you can get most of the same experience from the standard S6 model, but the Galaxy S6 Edge is an excellent phone and worth the extra cash.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one of the more interesting smartphones to reach the market this year. It offers excellent build quality, an impressive feature set, and unique curved glass.
It's zero secret what Samsung is "revealing" today, but plenty of details remain unconfirmed. We're live at Samsung's Unpacked event at MWC in Barcelona for the launch of the Galaxy S6.
Samsung trotted out two versions of its flagship smartphone for 2015 and took them in a new direction with respect to design. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge boast the highest quality materials and build we've seen from Samsung.
Samsung's curvy S6 Edge is a fantastic Android smartphone that deserves your attention. Verizon's model is solid, but has a few surprising weaknesses.
