Announced this morning alongside the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S6 edge+, another device for those who enjoy larger displays.
This device features identical specs to the Galaxy Note 5, with its 5.7″ QHD Super AMOLED display, Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor, 32GB and 64GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM, 16MP rear-facing camera, 5MP front-facing camera, 3,000mAh non-removable battery, with TouchWiz running atop Android 5.1.1.
In-hand, the S6 edge+ is exactly like the first Galaxy S6 edge, but larger. With the 5.7″ display, I found this device somewhat odd to hold, especially since the edges of the display are so thin. On the Galaxy Note 5, this design is reversed, with the edges curving on the back, allowing for a much more comfortable grip of the device. The S6 edge+, however, feels like the exact opposite.
Sadly, this device holds no real value over the Galaxy Note 5, unless you truly want those “edge” features. The device comes equipped with Edge Display and People Edge, but from what I found during my review of the Galaxy S6 edge, these features don’t exactly offer much in terms of value. For its size, an S-Pen would have made sense to me, but if we are talking about just a purely larger Galaxy S6 edge, I struggle to find the point.
