- The dual curve edge just look damn cool.
- No more plastics and cheap material. Samsung is finally giving us the hardware that we've long desired. By far, the best designed Galaxy phone to date imo. If you have played with the Galaxy S6 edge, just imagine a larger version of that.
- 5.7 in, QHD Super AMOLED screen.
- 16MP Camera with Smart OIS and 5MP front camera. This is the same camera as the one in the Galaxy S6. You will not have any buyer remorse when it come to this camera. IMO, it rivals those photos that are taken on the Iphone 6 and the LG G4. Of course, each have their own strengths and weaknesses.
- I notice that the front camera has a wide angle when taking picture. As in comparison to the iPhone 6, i feel that I can capture alot more and fit more ppl into my selfie without the extension of a selfie stick.
- Gorilla Glass 4 panels for front and back. Gorilla Glass are known to be tough and scratch resistance. But get ready for the fingerprint magnet. Being glass, I notice I constantly have to whip the screen (back and front). Not really a big issue, but it's a pain at time.
- Comes in various colors: White, black, gold, titanium This really annoys me. Yet, ATT only carry the gold and black right now.
- Comes in 32, 64 of built-in memory. (I don't know why there are no 128gb version in the US)
- Less of the TouchWiz’s gimmicky features like the eye scroll, eye away from the screen pause. So we will not be experiencing the same slowdown or low storage as we did with earlier versions. If the GS4/5 were all about the features, this phone is all about the design. I do like the camera app and how they add a "close all" into the recent screen.
- There are some plus feature that they add that I like. For instance, the side swipe for your favorite contacts and app. I think there are so many more potential feature for the curved edge. But so far, I only notice a few.
- Rapid charging (this feature is available with wired or wireless but you need the correct product for this to work)
- Wireless charging - So if you have extra money that you want to drop for a wireless charging dock, you will be able to use it with this phone.
Cons (Not necessarily apply to everyone):
- The curve screen make it difficult at time to pick up the phone due to the narrower side.
- I sometime feel that the curve screen make my video, pictures, etc to feel a bit distorted when I'm viewing it on the phone.
- No removable back panel.
- No removable battery. I’m a battery hog, so I’m always draining my battery by 3-4pm. Not being able to just swap out my battery will be a pain. I got about 15 hours of normal usage from this phone. Wont be able to get a 2nd day out of it but being in a mostly idle user hand, it might not be a problem
- Lower battery capacity - 3000mAh compared to other phablet. With the new processor and 4G of RAM, battery usage should be more efficient so it should not be a big deal, but end-users would rather the capacity to increase than decrease. In my experience, you wont be able to make the 2nd day without a charge. So keep a charger handy.
- Still no on-screen navigation button – Might only be a problem for "pure" Android fan.
- Rear Camera and Flash sticks out a bit and not flush with the back panel.
- Front and back glass is a potential problem as we all experiences with iPhone 4 and Galaxy s6. Glass will break if you drop your phone at the right angle regardless how much stronger it is, so "case up".
- The 1 speaker at the bottom is louder, however when you turn it on max, you will get some distortions in the audio quality. You wont get the audio level of those Dual front facing stereo on the G4.
- I have been experiencing some weird stutters/lags while messing around the phone. The phone seems to have to reload the app when I do app switching. It's only takes a sec for it to reload when you switch app back and forth but with all that RAM, I do not know why they are doing that.
- The price is a little more expensive than I thought. With myself being on the ATT Next plan, you might have to purchased the phone outright for over $800 after tax. It's a bit to chew on, but Bestbuy is running this promotion that if you trade in a working smartphone, you can get a instant $200 rebate which is what I went with.
Overall, this feels like a this is a solid device. Though I do think having difficulty handling and just picking up the device from the table is an issue that need to be address one way or another. Not really a big deal for some other user. Just something to keep in mind before purchasing. If you can overcome these small issues, I’m confident that you will enjoy this smartphone.But I will gradually update this post if I see any other pros/cons.
Please visit your local carrier store to have some hand-on time with the actual phone as what listed here is my own personal opinions.
First off, I went back and forth over whether or not I wanted the Note 5 vs the Edge + for quite some time. I finally settled on the Edge simply for the "wow" factor, for which this phone has LOADS. The gold edition is just wicked cool. The build quality equals anything iPhones have ever manufactured. I'll stipulate that iPhones have always done a great job of build quality. But I don't dislike plastics on a phone either. What I want more than a super sleek device which "looks" nice is one that will actually do what I want it to do. While working for AT&T, almost daily we had iPhone 4 and 4S phones come in with cracked screens. It seemed to be the most prone to those types of issues of any device ever manufactured at that point (the Nexus 4 wasn't far behind for ease of breaking, too). I'm sure the Edge is better manufactured than either of those, but still, it isn't impervious to accidents, so a case is absolutely critical no matter WHICH smart phone you buy. I went with the Tech 21 case that is a dirty, almost see-thru, which covers up the majority of the gold, but you gotta sacrifice a little if you want to protect your new product from the eventual spills it will take at some point no matter how careful you may be.
No phone is perfect, and the Edge + is no different. Picking it up with the super slim bezels on the side can be tricky, but you get used to it. Those who have a major issue with this need to get over it. You bought a phone that has a pretty nifty feature that allows for just this kind of thing, deal with it. Coming from the LG G3 this phone is about the same width, but noticeably taller. I became rather adept at learning to use it one-handed after some initial period of figuring it out, so it isn't that big of a deal for me, after all, I knew what I was getting into. However, if you are coming from a phone with a screen smaller than 5" you're going to want to go into a store and handle one in person FIRST, because if you have tiny hands, this is going to be akin to operate a 7" tablet for many. Be aware of what you are getting first so you don't have any surprises after you get home and become frustrated that your new purchase is too damn big.
The screen is magnificent. That's all there is to it. I've heard and watched all the YouTube videos touting this or that and how the iPhone 6+ has a higher brightness scale or whatnot, but in the end, what matters is what you SEE with your own eyes. This screen is amazing, pure and simple. Over 100 pixels per inch MORE than the iPhone 6+, and you can tell. That isn't to say that the iPhone screen isn't great as well, it just doesn't have the "wow" factor that this one does I don't care WHAT anyone says.
Let me say I have been disappointed in the battery life right up front. The G3 had impressive battery consumption, especially compared to my older Nexus 4 which had abysmal battery life from the get-go. With all of Samsung's claims about optimization and whatnot with its newer and faster processor, I expected the battery life to be at the very least as good as the older G3. I'm sorry to say it does not. I'd say that the Edge+ is a good 10-15% worse (that isn't scientific mind you, just a guess, but it IS worse I can assure you). On the flip side the quick charging and ability to use wireless charging IS a nice way to side step this issue, but clearly Samsung focused on form over function when it came to this particular model of phone. I keep hearing that Samsung is "possibly" going with a 4K screen within the next year...please, PLEASE don't! You honestly don't NEED a screen with any more than the QHD displays we already have...especially with the battery life we currently have. I haven't spoken with ANYONE who'd sacrifice battery life for screen quality, and I sure hope Samsung is listening. Unless and until they can dramatically increase battery life, going with anything above and beyond QHD is utterly a waste of time IMO.
With Samsung's newest chips, I expected the Edge+ to be screamingly fast. In most ways, it is. However when I checked the RAM usage, I was shocked to see that 81% of the RAM--which is 4 freakin' gigs by the way--was being taxed. This is Androids BIGGEST problem in my opinion. How can they NOT make a phone that doesn't automatically turn on apps without you asking it to after all these years? When I close off the apps, I would dearly love them to not use up precious RAM from that point forward til I want to use that app again. I know some apps run in the background for obvious reasons like G-Mail, but I don't need my game of Solitaire to be open and ready at a moments notice now do I? If Android could figure this problem out, no iPhone could ever catch it. But unfortunately that isn't today.
In most ways I love the phone. The speaker phone on the bottom is a noticeable improvement over the one on the back of my old G3, and not that it wasn't good, but the placement left a lot to be desired. Front facing is almost ideal, except for the times you have your phone set down face first. On the bottom is about as perfect as you can get without it being covered accidentally because of how you place it down. They copied apple in this, and I agree it was a copy worth making.
I'm not a huge fan of TouchWhiz, and I seriously considered not going with this phone specifically for this reason. Yes, I know that since the introduction of the GS6 and the GS6 Edge that its been toned way down, but in my opinion, not nearly enough. Samsung, for all its cool and nifty things that their phones can do that others cannot (and lets be honest, NO phone comes with as many bells and whistles as Samsung crams into theirs, but unfortunately, the vast majority of which are entirely gimmicky at best) still hasn't figured out how to optimize their own OS so their incredible processors have to be so much more powerful than apple's simply to make up for all the glitches it tends to foster. Come ON guys, figure it out. If you optimized your devices even HALF as well as apple does, your phones would slaughter theirs on every conceivable scale known to man. With that said, I'm much happier with this version of TouchWhiz than what I experienced when I had the original Note. Some things are great and intuitive, some are buried so deep in the settings menu's that you almost have to Google How To video's in order to discover what your phone is capable of.
One thing I saw before I bought my phone was that the Edge+ had an Auto Restart feature (FINALLY!). Something my 9 year old Blackberry used to have and I used regularly. Unfortunately, the version I have didn't come with it (T-Mobile) and I'm wondering why? Its a feature that Android really ought to put in as standard as it helps to make your device run smoother when you restart your phone on at least a semi regular basis. I gotta say I'm a bit disappointed it was left out of the software on my phone.
The Camera is nothing short of stellar. Before I bought my phone I did a ton of research, and it was down to the LG G4 and the Note 5/Edge+ for best Camera on a mobile device...until I saw a quick look at the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, and they bumped their Camera's up to 13MP and without even TESTING them, the horribly biased reviewer automatically claimed them to be the best new Camera's on the market today. Now I'm not going to say they are or not, but I just find it interesting that without even getting to test one this reviewer online chose the iPhone as the new champ. Sheesh. How stupid. Let's get some hands on experience and THEN make your claims, okay? Until then, the Camera on this phone is wicked fast, takes unbelievable pictures as well as video. I just wish the OIS feature was also there for 4K recording. Since I don't have anything to watch the video on in 4K, I don't even use that feature. I'm big on taking lots of photos, so this was another HUGE selling point for me. Love the new features, too. I'm interested to really try out the Pro and Raw photo abilities to see how it stacks up. VERY excited to see my photos from here on out take a noticeable bump in quality.
The fingerprint scanner works--at least so far--flawlessly. I was worried that it would have the glitches of the S5, but I'm happy to say it works, and does so reliably so. I must say it takes a bit to scan your finger into the phone--at first. But TRUST me, the reason why is so you can hold your finger even at odd angles or as I've discovered, even sideways and it will still work. Unlike the S5 where you had to slide your finger across, this one you simply hold it in place and it very quickly unlocks the phone. I have seen it open faster, and sometimes slower than the iPhone--but I have also seen this same reaction from the iPhone. But the truth is it always unlocks pretty quickly.
One of my few gripes with my old G3 was that you would unlock the phone, but couldn't do a single thing until the Android on-screen keys appeared FIRST. It didn't bother me--at first--but it just slowly ate at me until the last several months it bugged me horribly. I have since tested the G4 and noticed that the keys appeared much quicker, almost immediately, compared with the G3, which sometimes took as long as 3 seconds. Yes, I know 3 seconds isn't long, but it seemed like an eternity on occasion trust me. The Edge+ has NONE of that lag, though if I'm being honest, I imagine it will show up eventually as I fill up the memory more and more. However, so far I am also happy to report that its as snappy as the first moment I turned it on.
Some have made a big deal out of the phone missing the ability to add memory or include a removable battery, and this is either going to be a deal-breaker for some or it won't. While I'm still a bit surprised at the amount of battery consumption for what Samsung claimed was especially optimized to give users as good if not better battery performance as the Note 4--that simply hasn't turned out to be the case. My original Note 1 I personally believe had seriously better battery life. Say what you want, but after nearly 4 years, I expect MORE life, not less out of a flagship device such as this. But with that all aside, iPhones have proven that you don't need a removable battery in order to get through the day. If you're going to go to the trouble of buying a separate battery for some devices, why not just get a couple of decent portable charger/batteries (which cost much less, btw). This way you won't have to power down your device to swap out, and you'll have all the power you need. With the cloud based services available these days, some argue the need for additional memory is moot--but I submit that no matter how convenient that might be, it certainly isn't faster to have to link up to a cloud-based storage location to find a photo, or song then it is when you have it ON your phone already. Plus, what happens if you are in an area with spotty to no service, what then? Too many variables. I just don't see why they couldn't add another drawer on the side or top similarly to where you place the SIM card where you could also add an expansion card. That's my .02. I really think that if Samsung wants to lure a lot of those who stayed away from these new devices simply for those reasons to consider some kind of workaround on the next model if they want to get back to being the market leader like they were a couple years back. Come on, nobody can tell me it can't be done rather simply given what they did to redesign these phones in the first place.
Oh yeah, if you so desire, you can actually use your phone as an actual PHONE, which is tremendously convenient to be honest. The ear speaker works great, sounds great and the call quality I found to be good to excellent. The loud speaker was fantastic, but at higher volume sounded a bit scratchy--but that's to be expected from such a smaller speaker no matter what anyone says. Sure, the iPhone's might be clearer at higher volume, which IS a strong selling point if I'm being honest, but I don't use my speaker for anything other than phone conversations, so if you plan on using yours to listen to music, I would strongly reconsider. These phones really shouldn't replace an actual stereo speaker to listen to music on. Your experience may vary however.
I think that basically covers it all. I'm sure over the next few weeks I'll come up with a few additional things that will pop into my mind to share, and if they are worthy of note, I'll come and add them on an as needed basis. Otherwise, my summary is this: is the phone perfect? No. Is it great? Absolutely. I love it MUCH more than the G3, which I also loved. If you happen to be an apple fan, stick with what you know and love. Just because I prefer Android doesn't mean iPhone's don't perform admirably. I just prefer Android--issues and all--to what apple does...and their phones are by no means trouble free either. Both have strong points, both have weaknesses. It'll be a long time before a perfect phone comes along, so until then, I personally believe you cannot go wrong if you do your research and buy accordingly. Happy computing!
I must hand it to Samsung for a couple of things, despite the battery issue I talked about earlier, at least the phone has two major--and I DO mean MAJOR advantages over the latest apple devices: fast charging and wireless charging. If you order the special Samsung wireless fast charger it will charge even faster than the typical wireless dock, but honestly, I'm not THAT concerned about it. I'd rather buy 2 or 3 fast charging cables which would save me a bundle. But the point is, the choice is yours...AND its a choice you simply don't get to make, as with so many other things, with the iPhone. The fast charging, I must say, WOW. It really charges quite rapidly. I knew that going into this, but I was still amazed and thrilled with how quick you can boost your battery--but again, ONLY if you use the cord which comes with the Edge+ or if you purchase another cord online, and thankfully, they ARE available. I got a 3rd party wireless charging dock and it works brilliantly with my Edge+. Yes, its darned slow (as almost ALL wireless chargers are) but freakin' convenient I must say.
I have noticed that while in a car, answering a call has a distinct disadvantage so far: the ear speaker just doesn't get all that loud in my opinion. I found a way around that by using my ear buds or just placing it on speaker phone. That bottom speaker is mighty impressive I must say. Easily the loudest I've experienced in a mobile phone personally (I'd bet the boom speakers on the HTC models and the newest Nexus probably out perform it handily). VERY impressed with that.
I am still super impressed with the screen. And no matter what anyone says, the curved edges garner more attention than the iPhone, period. Everywhere I go I get comments, many by die hard apple fans, which is no small victory as far as I'm concerned. I just showed a coworker how the camera takes much better pics than his iPhone and even HE admitted they were better--which I didn't think I'd ever hear.
One tiny--but significant complaint I have is that on previous androids I had the option of creating a shortcut to dial or text a group of people. All I had to do was tap on their face and voila! I'd go directly into the texting app. For some reason they eliminated this feature with the S6, the S6 Edge and the Edge+. Not sure but I suspect they did away with it on the Note 5, too. So now, it takes an additional 2-3 extra taps to text where it used to only take one. I understand that I can download a 3rd party Launcher and get that feature right back--at least I THINK I could--but doing so would take away all the edge features that admittedly I bought this phone for in the first place. Yes, its minor, but I thought I'd pass that along anyway. I just wish Samsung would give us that option back and let us decide if we want to use it or not.
The camera is just unbelievably well made. It takes exceptional low-light photos that I've never seen the equal to--at least not on a cell phone anyways. The zoom feature is great, even from far away its ability to focus with the OIS ability is nothing short of phenomenal, MUCH better than my LG G3 camera. If you zoomed in too much, the laser focus simply couldn't handle it. I never took a pic that was zoomed in all the way that came out anything but blurry on my G3. NOT so with the Edge+. Impressed is all I have to say. I WILL add that some features that the phone is capable of using you have to download and are not immediately available ON the device right away, like snapping a photo or video taping with the front & back camera's at the same time. Keep in mind when you touch the 'More' button down by the shutter button, if you see a circle with an arrow pointing downward, that is what you press to access other features that you can download that the phone doesn't come with natively when you first turn it on. FYI.
All in all I am not only STILL impressed, but very happy that I went with the Edge+.
I mentioned in my initial review how the GS6 Edge+ had a built-in feature that I used to have with my Blackberry which allowed the phone to auto re-start at a pre-determined time but for some reason the T-Mobile version didn't have it...I received an update a couple days ago and on a whim I decided to go check again and VOILA! It was there! It won't allow you to auto re-start it more than once a week, but at least its there. Just one more thing I thought I'd point out that I now love about the Edge+. I wish, however, that this device had the productivity on the Edge feature like the original Note Edge came with, and I must say that I'm a little mystified as to why it didn't come available right out of the box like that, but I'm still unlocking new and improved features of my phone almost daily. If/when I come up with any that are truly ground breaking I'll try and remember to update this review accordingly.
> Phone charging time got increased ( from 40% to 100%,initially it was taking approx 45mins but now it is taking approx 2 hours) -- not sure problem with battery Or charger....
> Hang Problem - Sometimes phone is getting hanged when trying to unlock screen( getting full black screen for 1-2 minutes). No action can be performed on that time and you can only wait OR press power off button .....in last 4 months it happened 4-5 times
> Initially with very less usage of Mobile Internet Or wireless internet,Phone battery used to drain out 20%-30% only in full day (internet usage approx1 hour) but now battery is getting drained out too fast and with same usage on Internet 50%-60% battery is getting drained out in full day
Photo quality is too good for this phone.
