Experimenting with curved glass and touchscreen technology in consumer products since late 2014, the S6 Edge Plus is Samsung's newest (and largest) experiment to date!
This incredible smartphone not only boasts some of the highest end mobile technology hardware, the uniquely curved dual-edge display will turn heads and wow all onlookers, especially at a whopping 5.7 inches and Quad HD 1440 x 2560 resolution.
A departure from Samsung devices of the past, the whole S6 range is manufactured from premium materials: aluminium framing and glass coatings, with the best avalable Corning Gorilla Glass 4 to avoid scratches and unsightly marks.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is every bit the premium phone in performance and looks.
The new sealed units do mean that batteries are now sealed in this range of Samsung phones and the storage is fixed at purchase. This is necessary though to achieve the glamourous fold-away effect of a seamless screen to each edge.
With the Edge screen you can customise both the right and left side with shortcuts and messages. Quickly access regular contacts by a swipe or display a clock at night when sat on your bedside table.
If the phone is laid screen face-down, the edges will illuminate with a specific colour to match your favourite contacts when they get in touch - a subtle and ingenious solution.
Power & Connectivity
The Edge isn't all about making a fashionable statement. It's also an incredibly capable and productivity enhancing machine.
Samsung's own octa (8) core processor, coupled with 4GB of super-fast DDR4 RAM makes for an almost ridiculously powerful phone, capable of downloading, streaming and playing the best quality content and games available for mobile.
It's not just media though, Samsung include a wide range of productivity enhancing applications designed to make your work day easier, whether you need to take notes, get into conference calls or access cloud storage for documents.
You can use Microsoft One Drive for 115GB of online storage for 2 years at no extra cost - services such as Google Drive & Dropbox can also be easily integrated with the S6 Edge.
All of the most modern connectivity options are available and ready to use as soon as the Edge Plus is powered up. Basics such as WiFi, Bluetooth & 3G / LTE get you connected to the Internet and your accessories on the move.
You can also benefit from NFC for one-touch pairing to accessories and payments, WiFi direct for instant data/file transfers without a separate wireless network, Samsung Pay using MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) Korea & US only and SideSync for connecting to big screens.
The S6 Edge Plus has the latest version of the Android 5.1 operating system installed from the box. This includes a full suite of Google apps and access to the Google Play store to download many more, as well as a host of Samsung branded extras.
Android 5.1 also offers:
- Material design - a bolder, more colourful interface for Android
- A new power saving mode that can extend battery life by up to 90 minutes
- Better power management tools
- Improved notifications: respond from your lockscreen, or turn on priority mode to reduce them to the bare minimum. If you're watching a movie, notifications are automatically turned off and you're given the choice of whether or not to answer incoming calls.
- Multiple user accounts: have more than one sign-in for your phone or tablet. Previously this feature had been reserved for tablets only, but is now available for phones on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
- Improved security against malware
- SmartLock: pair your Android with another trusted device and it will only unlock when the two are paired.
Formany now a primary feature of their phone, Samsung have been holding the torch for some of the best Android cameras in recent years.
The 16 megapixel camera doesn't just offer a high resolution, Samsung's software makes for quick, simple shooting that stays in focus, with added extra features for those looking for them.
Not just for stills, you'll also find the camera can deliver UDH or 4K video recording at 30 frames per second, or a still high quality 1080p at 60 fps.
The front facing camera is now a cool 5 megapixels which will give even more clarity for those video calls, selfies or dual camera shots.
Enhanced camera functionality ensures lower light shots return better results from the F1.9 aperture and the dual tone LED flash.
We have all had moments when we wish to capture that image but the opportunity passes us by because we cannot load the camera quickly enough. Well, with the S6 Edge, the Quick Launch option will give quick access to the camera with a double tap of the home button. Launch and be ready to capture in just 0.7 seconds.
Protecting our data has become something that is talked about a lot more in recent years.
Android offers a few options to keep your phone safe if it goes walkabout, including password and PIN code security options. More robust options have been floated in the last year or so and Samaung have included a fingerprint scanner into the home button to ensure your phone isn't opened up by unscrupulous other users.
If you're thinking about using the S6 Edge Plus in a corporate environment, you can also make use of Samsung KNOX as an end-to-end solution for a secure mobile platform. KNOX can also be configured to be used as an MDA solution to lock down user access and avoid potential security risks such as app installs and mounting external storage.
Find My Mobile is a feature that secures lost devices and protects information through a number of services. Alll of this offers you peace of mind if the worst should happen.
A larger screen might drain the battery faster than other Samsung phones, so to that end you'll find an extra 400 mAh of cell storage in the Edge Plus.
To help keep you full of juice, the Edge Plus features support for both Qi and PMA wireless charging straight out of the bos with no additional accessories required. All you need is a relevant charging pad.
Also available on the S6 Edge is fast wired charging that, in just 10 minutes, will provide enough power for up to 4 hours of real world usage.
*Since September 2013, Samsung have implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only have access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.
For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.
Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.
Without activation you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.
If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.
**All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.
IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.
