Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+: Dual-curve screen, super sizedThis bigger, better follow-up to the curvy Edge is pretty, but comes with caveats.
[MUSIC] Okay, so you know the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge? Well, supersize it and now you have the Edge Plus. This is a big 5.7 inch Android phone that immerses you with a large, beautiful screen and those very cool, curved sides. Unfortunately, it's one of the most expensive phones you can buy. And some folks aren't going to like that there's no removable battery or expandable storage options. What you do get is a really interesting design with these two waterfall sides and a customizable menu bar that offers some shortcuts to apps, which you can pull up from any screen. There's also a side bar for up to five favorite contacts or it's just kind of a speed dial. You'll also get a subtle night clock and the options to receive notifications on your side bar. The edge screen can hang out on either side and you can move the tab position around to make it easier for your thumb to grab. Apart from this Edge display, the S6 Edge + is pretty much just like the less expensive Note 5, but without the stylus. It has the same great specs inside, like a 16 megapixel rear camera and a five megapixel front facing camera. And also, an octocore processor. It, too, runs Android 5.1 Lollipop right out of the box and comes with a ton of other settings, like two power saving modes, private mode and flip screen view. At the end of the day, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is [INAUDIBLE] It's a great phone but one that you'll buy only to rack up points for that wraparound Design. Or you could save yourself a little cash and buy the Note 5 or some other large screen phone. Whatever you do, make sure you read my full edge plus review and tweet me with any questions.
