Below are 2 photos of the same scene, taken with 2 different phones. First shot is taken with the LG G4.
The same scene but taken using the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
Now the original shots from each show were superb. I’ll be honest, the G4 snapped a better shot, however the difference was so marginal with this particular scene. If you owned either phone you would have been really happy with your photo.
But does the quality matter if you apply a filter. For this test I have used 2 different photo apps to make the comparison deliberately harder. The first shot taken with the G4 was edited in Snapseed using the HDRscape filter. The second shot taken with the S6 Edge was edited in Adobe Photoshop Express using the Autumn filter.
So which shot do you prefer? And does the quality really matter now?
Below is the original from the G4.
And now the original from the S6 Edge.
Has your preference changed?
Sammobile recorded a video detailing the new changes with Android 5.1.1. The good news is that currently the camera app adds the option to adjust exposure at the point of focus from within the viewfinder. RAW and shutter support and not within this build at the moment.
Within the notification menu you can now disable the S Finder and Quick Connect buttons. This is a good move. Samsung has also added an alphabetical app sort button for the app drawer, a floating-icon wallpaper motion effect and some visual tweaks to themes. Below is the video.
Is this enough?

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 now comes with themes. Nike created a theme which was ok but today BMW’s theme was live and it looks great on my phone.
Above is the lock screen which dynamically moves and you tilt the phone.
My main home screen with colours and shades matching BMW’s colours.
Even the settings menus and throughout the phone are changed.
Amazon.de now has the pre order pages for both the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Galaxy S6.
The pricing is as follows –
S6 Edge 128gb – €1,049
S6 Edge 64gb – €949 (this has had a 5% discount already applied)
S6 Edge 32gb – €999 (this is correct, same as 64gb at the moment)
S6 32/64/128gb – €999 (amazon clearly doesn’t want to reveal it hand yet on the pricing, but you can preorder and you will only be charged the lowest price at the time)
To add some perspective, €1,049 equals £759. So is the S6 or S6 Edge to expensive?

First let’s talk about the Samsung Galaxy S6.
The new Samsung Galaxy S6 as shown above is a 5.1 inch screen with an all metal body. This means no user replaceable battery. The remaining specs should be 2K display, a 2.1GHz Samsung Exynos 7240 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32+ GB of storage, a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
Bloomberg has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will definitely have 2 curved edged panels. This is going to be one hot handset. Based on my time with the Note Edge I do hope the battery lasts longer too.
I personally can’t wait to see both of these phones and get my hands on them for a proper review.
