Samsung unveiled its latest and greatest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, at its Unpacked event in Barcelona on Sunday. Despite multiple leaks already giving away most details of both devices, especially the design, Samsung had a few tricks up its sleeve in the form of new additions and some interesting new cutbacks. We managed to play around with both the smartphones at Samsung's booth at MWC in Barcelona and have our first impressions of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.
From the looks of it, Samsung seems to be listening to its critics and the consumers what with use of newer, arguably better, materials on both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Both the smartphones have all-glass front and back panels with a metal trim running along the edges. Samsung adds Corning's Gorilla Glass 4 which aids in adding durability to the devices. Unfortunately, the use of glass also means that the rear is a fingerprint magnet. In our limited time with the devices we noticed that it attracted a lot of smudges instantly. Samsung has used soft metal for the trim which combined with its chamfered edges allowed us to grip it easily. The reduced bezels on the Samsung Galaxy S6 ensures that gripping the phone with one hand is not too hard. Add to it, the 6.8mm thickness of the phone is a huge advantage as well.
