Wireless chargers for the Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge

New Samsung Galaxy range top class but battery life a problem.

With advances in transparent and flexible displays, foldable smartphones could start rolling out as early as 2016, a Korean news site reported this week.The price hike was evident again yesterday when South Korean manufacturer Samsung revealed the cost of its two latest premium models, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

While most will welcome the axing of the not-so-fantastic plastic casing for a new glass body and aluminium alloy sides, there is collateral damage: the battery is no longer removable and there’s no slot for a microSD card, until now articles of faith for the Galaxy S range.Not just buffed up with the end of a smelly tee shirt, the way one might with any other smudge-prone phone, but polished it good and proper, with a special soft cloth I’ve taken to carrying around for the express purpose. Business Korea also quoted a senior official from LG Display as saying the development of display technology that creates a virtual space on glass is already completed. “However, it will take time until the product becomes commercialized due to mass production according to demand and stable supply,” the LG official was quoted as saying. One consequence of no microSD is that the S6 and S6 Edge are being sold in 32 gigabyte, 64GB and 128GB storage variants with a price structure similar to the iPhone.

Flexible displays are paper-like displays that produce the same picture quality even if bent by users. “The invention just isn’t about a flexible display but also a completely flexible frame that could be bent forwards and backwards with relative ease,” it said. One can like and enjoy Samsung’s phones – I happen to like the Galaxy Note 4 very much – I find it extremely functional and use it every chance I get – but they’re not the sort of things one forms an emotional attachment with, to the point where you want the best for them. Market researcher Gartner said Apple had reported its best quarter ever in the fourth quarter of last year, in which it sold 74.8 million units globally and moved to No 1 in the global market. “The increase in handset prices is drawing people into looking at repayment plans with the carriers,” said Foad Fadaghi, managing director of Australian research firm Telsyte.

Yet the S6 Edge, which has the bigger battery of the two, struggled to get through each day I used it, mainly for basic functions: calls, texts, emails and surfing the web. The world’s largest consumer electronics company has finally listened to little ol’ me (and, truth be told, to the billion other voices saying the exact same thing). Our benchmarks show it to be the fastest phone we’ve ever tested, by some considerable margin, and combined with the largely Lollipop interface, it could barely be more fluid or pleasant to use. Even Samsung’s software touches, like the TouchWiz interface overlay, is surprisingly OK, probably due to how much it tries to stay out of the way and let Android Lollipop have its way.

Apart from auto mode, there’s “pro” mode where you manually set focus, white balance, ISO and light variations, and a “selective focus” mode. The fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy now works the way you hope it would, too: the way the scanner on an iPhone does, from any angle and without the need for an awkward swipe. And, for some reason I haven’t got to the bottom of, it seems to work with corporate security policies, so you can use your fingerprint to unlock your phone even when your company policy requires a PIN or password. But the coloured “People edge” flashing is really only effective if you happen to leave your phone face down, say on a desk or a table or something, so the edges are visible when the rest of the screen is not visible, and the colours shine out the side. There’s one feature of Android Lollipop that important to point out: lock screen alerts or notifications which hadn’t been built into Android with any pizzazz.
