Design and Display
The device features the same beautiful design as its smaller sibling, including the metal frame, glass panels up front and on the back, and the sloping, curved sides on the display that give the phone its name.Galaxy S6 Edge plus design

There is no longer an IR blaster to be found, so up top is only the microphone and the SIM card slot, while at the bottom are the headphone jack, microUSB port, a single speaker unit, and a secondary microphone.

Samsung phone only had the Galaxy S6 Edge plus to fall back on. It’s essentially a jumbo version of the regular S6 Edge , adding a large 5.7in display that came complete with those lovely curved sides.Galaxy S6 Edge plus display

It also shares the same 2,560×1,440 resolution as the smaller phone. With the same number of pixels stretched over a larger screen size, this means pixel density is actually a fraction lower on the S6 Edge plus, at 515ppi compared to the S6’s 576ppi.

However, this is still incredibly sharp even for a big screen handset, and you’ll be hard pressed to notice the difference in day-to-day use.

With such high-end specs on the existing Galaxy S6 models, it’s not really a shock that things haven’t changed for the Edge+.Galaxy S6 Edge plus Camera

This means there are still top-notch cameras at 16Mp at the rear with optical image stabilisation (it still sticks out a few millimetres but is one of the best on any smartphone), a single LED flash and support for 4K video at 30fps.

There’s also still a decent 5Mp camera at the front.

Hardware and processor
Squeezing in Samsung’s own octa-core Exynos processor and ditching the Qualcomm chipset it’s often used in UK handsets.

That’s a quad-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A53, paired with a quad-core 2.1GHz Cortext-A57, alongside 4GB RAM. The extra 1GB RAM over the smaller S6 edge gives a little more breathing room, allowing the phone to handle multiple apps running at a time without issues.

Only once did we have TouchWiz glitch out on us, otherwise it’s been a swift and easy-to-use experience.

On the storage front you might be sad to hear there’s still no Micro-SD card slot and the 128GB model has been dropped from the line-up, leaving just 32- and 64GB choices. It runs an operating system of Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop)

Galaxy S6 edge plus as been proved to be water resistant and not waterproof, when tested, it is likely to survive accident, but not when submerged.

BatteryGalaxy S6 Edge plus charging
The larger physical size means there’s room for a 3000mAh battery inside and the Edge+ also offers wireless charging which is something we always want to see from a high-end handset.

Fingerprint sensor
The S6 edge plus holds up well, delivering a press-to-access fingerprint sensor that’s on par with the best competition, including Apple TouchID.Galaxy S6 Edge plus fingerprint

Whether you like the look of Samsung’s protruding home button or not (where the scanner is houses), it does mean you’ll know exactly where to pop your thumb or finger in order to sign into the device
