Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

9. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

OS: Android 5.1 | Screen size: 5.7-inch | Resolution: 1440x2560 | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 32GB/64GB | Battery: 3000mAh | Rear camera: 16MP | Front camera: 5MP

If you loved the idea of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge but wished it was a little bigger the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is for you.

It's almost the same phone, with that dual-curved display still the star of the show and yet still a little bit pointless, though undeniably good looking.

But curves aside it's a top notch QHD screen and if anything it's even better for being stretched out to 5.7 inches.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ also has a brilliant 16MP snapper, a speedy fingerprint scanner and oodles of power, packing in an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and pumping the RAM up to 4GB, from 3GB on the standard S6 Edge.

Sadly this phablet version still suffers its compact companion's main issue, namely battery life, which at no more than a day really doesn't cut it for a flagship, despite the inclusion of both fast and wireless charging. That holds it back, but in most other ways this is easily the best phablet money can buy.
