Many reviews have opined that it has the best cameras that are perhaps available in any smart phone. The design features are quite innovative and the quality is also quite brilliant and sturdy. For many the talking point is the screen which according to them is simply awesome. On the whole there are reasons to believe that it offers the best possible performance on all fronts. The touch is also of the highest quality and lasts for a long time. The Android OS is superb and comes with easy upgradable features.
Though there has been much talk about the curve screen for many it is just a superficial design and there is nothing much to go crazy about. Though the design is quite good it could be tricky when holding in hand and there is the real risk of it slipping down and falling. The cost is also a deterrent which will make it only a high end smart phone. It does not come with any SD card slot though there are internal memory storage provisions. Hence removing the memory card and making use of it is not possible. Though the battery has been much talked about, there are many gaming enthusiasts who feel that gaming hurts the battery very badly and it drains off rapidly requiring regular charging.
At the end of the day, there is no doubt that Samsung Galaxy S6 edge (SM-G925F) is a mixed bag. While it delivers on almost all performance parameters, the design features and absence of SD card is something that not many customers like.
