The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is the closest thing we"ve got to a "Samsung greatest hits" phone. There"s the sleek, curved glass from the S6 Edge coupled with the larger 5.7-inch screen from the lưu ý lineup. Together, they hóa trang one of Samsung"s most memorable smartphones yet. But while the Galaxy S6 Edge+ ($300 on-contract; $768 to $815 off) is certainly striking, the Korean electronics giant clearly still has some kinks khổng lồ work out around curved screens. It"s a feature that"s slightly more useful here than on the S6 Edge, but fundamentally it"s still just about aesthetics, rather than function. That might not be a problem for some, but Samsung still has lớn prove why curved screens are more than a gimmick.

Take the Galaxy S6 Edge & make it bigger. That"s basically all Samsung did here. The Edge+ still has Gorilla Glass panels on the front and back, along with a strong metal frame, but the form size of its curved screen has been bumped up lớn 5.7 inches from 5.1. Yes, it"s gorgeous -- even more so than its smaller sibling since the overall effect of its curves is more pronounced. It"s the most confident thiết kế statement we"ve seen from Samsung yet.

Looks aren"t everything, though. I was almost ready lớn give up my iPhone 6 for the GS6 Edge earlier this year -- that is, until I actually held it for several minutes. While the curved screen looks cool, it also works directly against the natural contour of your hand, digging into your flesh rather than resting comfortably. That same problem rears its head again with the Edge+ -- và it"s an even bigger issue since there"s so much more phone lớn hold. It makes the phone awkward to lớn wield with one hand (even with my large paws) & tougher lớn grasp for extended periods. The curves also make it tougher khổng lồ use apps that put buttons and options on the edges of the screen, as you"ll inevitably hit those by accident when merely holding the phone. Basically, if you"re considering the Edge+, be sure khổng lồ get some real hands-on time with it before you commit.

As for its other thiết kế elements, the Edge+ also shares quite a bit with Samsung"s other S6 phones. Gone are the days when Samsung phones were made of cheap plastic; everything here feels premium, from the glass back to the metal. But just lượt thích with the iPhone 4 and 4s, having a glass rear still feels lượt thích a questionable choice, especially if you"re prone khổng lồ dropping your phone. And while the metal components are nice, it"s hard not to lớn notice that the S6 Edge+, like Samsung"s other recent phones, looks just lượt thích the iPhone 6 và 6 Plus from certain angles. The company"s inspiration is clear, but at least it"s a tasteful remix (and it"s not as if táo apple didn"t take some cues from Samsung"s pioneering work with big-screen phones.)

The Edge+ also includes the same fingerprint reader on its home button as the other S6 models, và it works surprisingly well. I didn"t spend a significant amount of time with those earlier phones, so it was refreshing lớn see a well-implemented fingerprint reader on an game android phone. Adding your fingerprints simply involves holding down your finger several times, and the authentication process was typically fast and error-free. Of course, the entire process works just lượt thích Apple"s cảm ứng ID implementation, but at this point, did you really expect anything different?

If you"re confused why Samsung didn"t just gọi this phone the "Note Edge 2," after last year"s foray into a curved-screen phablet, it"s because it simply has more in common with the S6 Edge. It also lacks some of the note Edge"s screen widgets (since that phone had a much bigger curve to lớn work with). Really, though, a more appropriate name for the S6 Edge+ might be the "Note 5 Edge." It"s surprisingly tough khổng lồ tell the difference between this phone & the note 5 side by side, as they chia sẻ many of the same thiết kế flourishes. But where the Edge+ has a curved display on the front, the chú ý 5 has curves on its back, allowing it lớn rest more comfortably in your hand. Under the hood, the two phones are exactly the same (more on that later). But while the Edge+ is the same kích cỡ as the Note, there"s no S Pen stylus; it"s geared more toward consuming nội dung than being productive.

Display

If there"s one thing Samsung can vày without much effort, it"s make a gorgeous display. Và the Edge+ is yet another example of that. Its 5.7-inch, Quad HD (2,560 by 1,440) Super AMOLED display is vibrant & colorful, even in direct sunlight. Given its size, it"s ideal for watching movies or perusing photos, but it"s also sharp enough to lớn make text look great. It basically packs in everything you"d want from a modern điện thoại screen.

None of this should be a surprise, though: Samsung"s had a great run with Quad HD panels over the last year, starting with the Galaxy Tab S slates. Now you could argue that such a high resolution might be overkill on a phone screen, and you"d probably be right. The Edge+ packs in a whopping 518 pixels per inch in its display, but you"d have to lớn be superhuman lớn see the difference between that và the 386 pixels per inch on a similarly sized 1080p display. Those extra pixels might actually be useful if you plan to lớn use the Edge+ in Samsung"s Galaxy Gear VR headset, but that"s a $200 accessory most people won"t buy (and will probably never even see in person). All of that being said, it"s hard to knock the phone"s display in real-world use. Samsung is positioning the phone as an ideal media-consumption device, and it"s succeeded at making a screen that you can easily spend hours gawking at.

Software

*

Another year, another slimmed-down software offering from Samsung. The Edge+ ships with a lightly skinned version of app android Lollipop 5.1.1. While Samsung"s TouchWiz interface isn"t as clean as stock Android, it"s nowhere near as intrusive as the company"s earlier software attempts. Even the preinstalled apps are pretty useful, including Microsoft Word, OneDrive and Skype (which are also more signs of Microsoft"s ever-broadening smartphone ambitions). Samsung also offers a choice selection of software via "Galaxy Apps," which is where you can also pick up Samsung-built apps like "S Translator" và its custom chat phầm mềm "AllTogether." The beauty of this approach is that there"s less crap installed on your phone that you might not need.
