The highlight of the amazing look of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is the screen. Samsung chose to make use of a curved AMOLED screen.
At first sight, it is beautiful to behold. Its curved screen seems to have no end and meets with the glass rear giving it an all-glass feel.
The downfall of the sleek design is that it’s slippery. It’s not easy to hold for a long time and is highly susceptible to falls which can be disastrous.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge features KNOX technology, which offers more security than is found in its twin (Samsung Galaxy S6).
The fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button only requires a tap to be used instead of a swipe in its predecessor (Samsung Galaxy S6).

However, you’d have to set this up in the edge screen settings. You can also see notifications, tell the time and weather amongst other information on this edges at every point in time.
