With the market flooded with cheap Chinese phones, they have succeeded in creating niche consumers for themselves.

But there is still the market open for the high-end expensive phones. And Samsung is one brand that always wants to face its competitor with an upgrade. This time to face Apple, it came up with Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+.

How about we have a look at what does it have in store for us.
With its curved edge screen, it is no doubt a stylish phone and be assured when you use it be prepared to have people staring at you.

The entire phone has a top end look, designed to make heads turn. One thing that will amaze you is, its super AMOLED screen and it will cheer you up. Samsung always has a way to have stunning displays. Sure to cheer you up in the mornings. The phone feels exceptionally strong and rigid but is also delicate, in the sense that you unconsciously begin to handle it with extra care.

The volume and power button are easy to reach. The sensors, notification LED, earpiece and 5-megapixel camera are place on top of the screen, while the home button with its incorporated fingerprint scanner and the “Back and Recents” buttons are placed below it.

You will find the Nano SIM Tray and microphone for noise cancellation on the top. At the bottom there is the Micro-USB Port, headset socket and speaker grille. On the rear you will find 16-megapixel camera, LED flash, and heart-rate sensor.
You will not find the phone heavy as the weight of the phone is well distributed. The only issue you will find is using the phone with one hand given it has large curved display. There are chances of you dropping the phone.

On the software front, be assured that you will get Samsung’s TouchWiz interface on top of Android Lollipop 5.1.1. The S6 Edge+ gets some refined changes and few new features compared to its previous family member. The usual collection of Samsung apps such as the Gear app, S Health, S Voice, SideSync, Galaxy App store and S Planner are there in the package.

The Edge screen sub-menu allows you to modify, the edge. You can place a tab on either side of the screen and quickly access five favourite contacts and apps you prefer by swiping up on it. Night Clock is a useful feature which shows you the time, alarm time and battery level along the edge. Apps from Microsoft like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Skype and OneDrive are already installed. You also get 100GB of OneDrive cloud storage space free for two years.

Camera performs very well irrespective of the lighting condition. Colours are vibrant and the level of detail is astonishing, even when you zoom in. Optical image stabilisation does a very good job at getting rid of annoying shakes, and video quality is pretty stunning, even in low-light.
The large 3000mAh battery will manage to last about one full day of regular usage of playing games, using the camera, making calls, and listening to music.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
