Unboxing: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

April 13, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Finally. We have our hands on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Big shout out to Sprint for hooking us up. We have the 32GB Pearl White model of the Galaxy S6 Edge in hand, and it looks just as great as it did in Barcelona. It’s super thin, but the curved display doesn’t really make it tough to hold onto, which is definitely a surprise. And was one of the biggest complaints from users when it was announced last month.

Out of the box, the Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge has 24.74GB free, on the 32GB model. There’s also quite a bit of bloatware installed on the Galaxy S6 Edge, from Sprint. This includes OneDrive, OneNote, Hancom Office 2014, Milk Music, Smart Remote, Instagram, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, 1Weather, Amazon, App Pass, App Spotlight, Familywall for Sprint, Galaxy Apps, Lookout, Messaging+, NASCAR Mobile 2014, NBA GameTime, NextRadio, Scout, Sprint Family, Sprint Fun & Games, Sprint Music Plus, Sprint TV & Movies, Spotify, Sprint Worldwide, and Sprint Zone.

The Galaxy S6 Edge camera does poke out a bit, it’s not too bad. But Samsung does have Sapphire glass on the camera so that it won’t get scratched up. Which is good. After some quick time with the camera, I’m pretty impressed. Not only does it take some fantastic photos, but it also is very fast at taking photos. Almost as fast as the HTC One M9. We’ll have a nice camera shootout with the Galaxy S6 Edge/S6, Galaxy Note 4, HTC One M9, Xperia Z3 and the Nexus 6 soon. So make sure you stay tuned for that.

Samsung has put a 2560×1440 resolution Super AMOLED display on the Galaxy S6 Edge, and then curved it. It’s a pretty good looking display, in fact, I think it’s even better than the Galaxy Note 4. It’s a really good display, probably one of the best ones out there, right now.

We’ll be working on our full review of the Galaxy S6 Edge over the next few days, so make sure you stay tuned to Android Headlines for the full review of the Galaxy S6 Edge as well as more content, as we begin to break down all the features of the Galaxy S6 Edge.
