When the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge made their debut at the 2015 Mobile World Conference, Android users worldwide rejoiced—finally! Samsung has given us an Android phone to stand up to the iPhone in terms of aesthetic and cool, new features. Unsurprisingly, Samsung is touting the new Galaxy smartphones as “reimagined from the inside out” and they aren’t kidding—the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge are by far Samsung’s coolest phones yet. Here are our three reasons why you, too, should get excited for their release on April 10:
#1. Both are the sleekest, slimmest Galaxy models ever.
Encased in beautiful metal and Gorilla glass, the days of bulbous, heavy-duty plastic are long gone. Both phones are thin and gorgeous, and nearly identical in size. The most notable difference between the two, however, is the Edge’s dual-curved display. This glass “edge” (hence the name) can be set up to display a clock and flash notifications (text messages, phone calls, emails, etc.) at you. It’s the perfect innovation for the gadget-loving enthusiast.
#2. Both feature Samsung’s most advanced camera to date.
The camera comes with an impressive Sony IMX240 16 mega-pixel sensor with a F1.9 lens that launches in the blink of an eye. The real-time HDR allows you to accurately capture things as they move, plus it gives you even more customizable settings and shooting modes. And, for the avid selfie-taker, you can now further feed your obsession with the handy Selfie Cam that’s located directly next to the regular camera lens.
#3. New and improved features give other phones a run for their money.
Internal memory up to 128 GB, wireless charging, a much-improved fingerprint sensor, and a Smart Manager App that allows you to manage battery life, storage settings, etc., in one convenient place—these are just some of the most prominent and impressive new features on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
Now, to be fair, some users may have a few gripes about the non-removable battery, the lack of an SD card slot, and the fragility of the new design. But given all of the awesome new updates and features, we can predict that even the hardest-to-please Android user will be satisfied. Which will you buy on April 10?
