Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge - Beautifully design but not perfect.

The two special color for each of their own version. 

Samsung has finally revealed their new flagship for this year; The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.  It is definitely a beautiful designed smartphone, a much more premium feel than the previous Galaxy S series.

Personally I would prefer the Galaxy Edge version, as it feels much more special and looks much better than the original version. This time round is curved on the both side of the screen, which make it less abrupt like the Galaxy Note Edge?  I always feel the curved side for the Galaxy Note Edge is quite forcefully bend and implemented. (Like they are rushing to send out to the market)

Other Feature: IR remote, Wireless Charging.

In order to achieve this kind of design, they have to sacrifice some of their previous features. In this case, they removed the ability of changing the battery and also the ability of expending your phone with MicroSD card.  I find it quite disappointing, I also find the reason people would prefer Samsung over iPhone due to the ability of changing your battery easily.

However, apart from those disappointing news, Samsung actually implemented the wireless charging function. Wireless Charging is actually a very useful feature as it is wireless, they wouldn’t have any tangling wireless to your phone anymore.

Even though these two flagships lacked of the removable back and MicroSD slot, many consumers would still go crazy and help Samsung to break their previous sales record. These two phones really do look premium and awesome. Even though they said they start to designed from scratch, but it still look almost like the predecessor.

As for me, I would definitely go for the S6 Edge as the curved edges fit in so perfectly and make the S6 look more boring right now.

Question of the day:
Do you think they have make a right choice of losing the ability of removing the back cover and the expansion slot?
