Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge: First impressions

Mike Gee | March 2, 2015
Samsung's range of upcoming flagships are a large step in the right direction.

TouchWiz benefits from simpler styling
One of the most important upgrades made to Samsung's next-generation flagships concerns the software. Samsung has simplified TouchWiz and leaned more on the design introduced by Lollipop. The Android 5.0 operating system feels less convoluted and significantly more refined. Other tweaks involve a finger scanner that no longer requires a swipe, and a payment system that will be released in the US and Korea first.

It is unknown when the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will reach Australia. Samsung has revealed the smartphone will be released in 20 countries on 10 April. The smartphones will be made available in storage options of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, and in colours including White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz (Galaxy S6 only) and Green Emerald (Galaxy S6 edge only).
