Samsung had started the year with a bang with the introduction of its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge at MWC 2015. Not only it packs more powerful hardware underneath but they have finally made a device that looks and feels more upmarket than anything they have produced before.

Samsung has always been known for its plasticky build even on its flagship models. In each sequel, they had tried almost everything from using faux leather to rubbery textures to make plastic feel more expensive. For the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, you can leave your old perceptions behind as Samsung has finally taken premium materials and design more seriously.

The two Galaxy S6 models are made mostly from glass and metal. Finally it is something on par with its rival iPhone 6 and HTC One M8 in terms of build quality. While the usage of glass isn’t entirely new, they have made the appearance look more stunning and unique with a range of vibrant new colours. In the hands, the back of the device looks like flowing metal and it reflects light beautifully under various angles. This has got to be the best looking smart phone that Samsung has ever made.
