I thought I could wait until the new iPhone was announced to make up my mind. My 1520 on W10M was getting too frustrating to use (twitter tells me a few did the same and just reverted back to 8.1).
So now, after my stint with Android on the Note 4 (good but then infuriating experience with lag and abysmal battery life) I’ve masochistically gone for round 2, this time for the stunning Edge 6 Plus version is Gold Platinum. In a previous post, I mentioned it reminded me a bit of the N9’s curved edges. Here the Edge Plus.
Here’s an unboxing:
Picked this up from Carphone Warehouse. It’s the 64GB version. Unlocked. Apparently it should come with that fast wireless charger to be sent to my house on Tuesday.
Voila. I think it’s pretty. Ever since the S6 Edge (normal) it has been turning my head where ever I see it.
Included key for nano sim that kinda looks like a pin map. Which reminds me to install HERE as the auto reinstaller does do that (only google play store apps, not samsung store)
Included headphones, USB cable and fast charger. Those headphones aren’t in ear so to me they feel weird.
Plastic film is still on. Don’t worry.
Oof. The way the edges bleed to the side.
There’s a pretty decent front facing camera and a single press finger print reader as per s6/s6 edge originals. No more swipe and fails (maybe the fails) like the note 4.
The bottom looks like an iPhone. The S6 regular more so.
It’s 157g or so. It feels light. Like it doesn’t have a battery. The way the% went from 50 to 37 in a few minutes, it might as well not be. But it was installing loads of things and updating at the same time…
Nothing at the top, just the nano sim tray.
Power button/lock this side.
Already full of finger prints. The case at carphone warehouse was £40 for one! I took up the insurance instead.
The screen looks like a sticker.
Now the screen is on, there’s a bit of a dark rim on the side where the panel meets the phone.
Anyway that’s it for now.
