The Samaung S6 Edge is light, thin and beautiful. However, every single surface – front, back and curved sides – is a fingerprint magnet. You’ll spend time cleaning your phone. Or just get a cover/case for it. It’s worth it, however.
Particular Edge Features
night mode – the Edge stays lite up during the hours YOU specify in the settings. It’s not so bright it will keep you awake but it’s readable. Well, unless you can’t read without glasses. But if you are young with young eyes you’ll always know what time it is if you happen to be woken up suddenly in the middle of the night.
When a call is missed it makes a tab on the right side of the Edge. I can access this quickly – “pulling” the tap Into the middle of the screen to bring out this graphic to see who I missed. Kinda Kool.
To ADD a credit card, tap ADD. This brings up a screen which has a window in the center. Hold your credit card within that window so the software can scan it. If it is successfully scanned the next screen pops up for you to correct (if necessary) or add the number and name on the card. In order to keep the info within this app secure your fingerprint is required to open it every time. If you do have a credit card they have on their list, the last step in adding it for use is the app software will send a text code to a phone number. Silly me, I used my Google Voice number and I think that’s a mistake. In any case, I’ll keep checking on this feature and in the future I’ll have more info to report.
The EDGE phone comes with the usual AC adapter and the headset comes in plastic case with extra ear buds. This is the new style ear buds.
And, here is my favorite photo taken with the Samsung S6 Edge. Using the BURST mode, I tried to capture a butterfly as it fed on flowers and picked the best picture. I cropped this, but you can see how sharp and perfect it is. Wow!
I really like this particular video feature of the Samsung S6 Edge. Set the Mode to Fast Motion. Make a video, then using the editing app you can program WHEN the video speeds up and WHEN it slows down.
This is a screen grab of the editor where you just scrub the indicators to the spots where the speed changes. You watch the video at the top of the screen to fine tune your efforts. Now, that is damn cool!
This is a beautiful cell phone. Even if I have to keep wiping the screen. Samsung Pay is still too new a feature to fully review. It’s getting there and it’s obvious that Samsung is dedicated to full security – I couldn’t even make screengrabs because the software refuses to during the card scanning procedure. I’m sure Samsung will continue to work out the kinks…and add more banks to their program.
