With a compelling form factor and high-specced components, the Galaxy S6 edge is a powerful and enticing device. We find out if it holds sway over its non-edge brethren.
Eye-catching form factor; Solidly constructed; Impressive processor and camera performance
Very expensive; Curved edges makes handling difficult
At R15 000 for the 64 GB variant, the S6 edge is more expensive than most (even the iPhone 6), and also R4 000 more expensive than the 32 GB standard Galaxy S6. It therefore seems catered to users who wish to talk about their smartphone's design as much as its performance. For that reason, steer towards the standard S6 instead, as the edges are far easier to handle day in day out and doesn’t cost as much.
