Reviews surrounding this smartphone have noted that it is even larger than the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, now at a size of 5.7 inches. However, other features of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ remain identical to its older model, with the same incredibly detailed display of 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED and a 8-core Exynos processor. Additional positive reviews surrounding the smartphone remark that the screen size, quality and design are one of a kind. Plus, the phone charges faster than its previous model, and includes other minor improvements that make it impressive. Other positive reviews comment on the octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and the newly added 4GB RAM, which make the smartphone extremely fast. Also, there is a new camera feature that includes a button which immediately connects to a user’s Youtube account and broadcasts live. Negative reviews have pointed out the larger phone size alters the ease and comfort when holding the smartphone. Additional negative reviews have highlighted the lack of a microSD card slot on the smartphone, which means users must rely on the 32GB/64GB storage that the phone includes.

This smartphone is already available for purchase across the globe.

The latest iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will include colors like rose gold, silver, gold and space gray. A 12 MP rear camera sensor, as well as a brand new A9 chip with 64-bit architecture are some of the most exciting internal changes. Plus, the 3D Touch feature will also be a great addition that allows different responses depending on the force used when touching the screen. For instance, using your thumb to press down on the screen forcefully and for a longer time will allow the smartphones to reveal different options. Another new addition is the improvement of Touch ID, which can now unlock the smartphones even faster via faster thumbprint recognition.

The phone is now available for purchase online, and will be available within stores as of September 25th.
