Samsung has always provided stiff competition to Apple in the form of its Galaxy line up, which is a worthy competitor to the IPhone series. But lately, the Korean manufacturer’s sales have been declining, probably due to Samsung’s outdated design philosophy that doesn’t have the premium elegance that the iPhone’s industrial design so beautifully exhibits.

In a major design overhaul, Samsung has completely redesigned its flagship device by constructing it with a metal chassis and a glass front and back. The new look Galaxy S6 is beautiful, elegant and gives off a premium feel when held.

Curved Edges

What’s more, Samsung has equipped the device with a rather unique display that has curved edges on both sides. A first of its kind, the curved edges might be seen as a gimmick by Samsung to provide something different but its practical uses on the Note edge may prove otherwise.

The full extent of the display’s practical uses will be proved only after extensive hands-on use. The edges will display notifications so that users can look at them even when the phone lies face down.

MST Mobile Payments

The new flagship is also loaded with top of the line features that may help it to edge out the iPhone 6 as one of the best phones out there. The device boasts of a new flash memory technology that will facilitate faster data access. To rival Apple Pay, the Galaxy S6 features NFC and MST mobile payments. Also, the new device is one of the first Samsung devices to feature wireless charging support. You can buy this amazing gadget from top online stores like Amazon, Flipkart, Shopclues and more.

More Powerful than the iPhone 6?

With an all powerful 64 bit chip and 3GB RAM, the Galaxy S6 Edge is considerably more powerful that the iPhone 6, at least on paper. Now with ravishing looks to compete with the likes of Apple, implementation of newer technology, a 16 MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization and that brilliant and unique curved display, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge might prove to be the stiffest competitor that the Apple IPhone 6 has faced yet.
