Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Review

Photo credit: BGR

In addition to being one of the first handsets to feature built-in, dual-standard wireless charging technology, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge boasts a curved display where the notifications appear on either the right or left-hand side, depending on which hand the owner uses. Up to five contacts can be programmed to appear on this edge, and each contact is assigned a color. Contacts can be accessed when users swipe the relevant color to reveal recent interactions and details about that person. On the other hand, swiping the long edge of the screen shows the time, weather or other customized notifications. Accidentally placed your phone face down? No worries, as the edge glows to show a phone call, text or email has been received. If these messages are from a saved contact, the edge will glow the relevant color.

Samsung Artists Camera Selfies

Samsung's NX Mini has the tagline: "For Self-Portraits. Not Selfies." So it's only fitting that ad agency Leo Burnett Switzerland throw in some tongue-in-cheek humor for their latest campaign showcasing the camera. These posters show three iconic artists - Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, and Albrecht Durer - snapping selfies of themselves using the camera, and watching all of the action on its flip-up LCD display. For those more interested in the NX Mini, DP Review says this: "The Samsung NX mini is an impressive camera purely because of the amount of technology that Samsung has managed to place inside such a tiny body. The [...] lenses currently available for the mini are of a high quality, and the camera is capable of excellent results from its 1in sensor." More information.
