This post is brought to you by the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. Next is now.

Once 2016 hits, you’re going to be out and about again, taking all life gives you. Jostling between your work and play is already tough to begin with but with a premium pocket companion like the Galaxy S6 edge+, it’ll get easier. Designed with high-end aluminium and glass, the combo makes the 5.7-inch device a pleasure to hold in your hands.
Captivate friends and family with its QHD (2560 x 1440) AMOLED screen, as you browse through shopping lists, and let them notice the nimbleness of the package. You’ll notice the dual-edged display immediately and it offers some great functionality too, making sure your loved ones are just a tap away. Measuring at 154 x 75.8 x 6.9mm, it has a small footprint for a device with such a large screen, while only weighing 153grams.

With those specs, you’d expect the Galaxy S6 edge’s camera to flaunt the same resume, and it does. Testing the same sensor found on the Korean company’s other flagship, the Galaxy Note5; our readers voted for it to be the best of the flagships – across all the other major players.
Pleasing you with the 16-megapixel main camera, it won’t show any compromises while your capturing and sharing photos during the holiday season. Feel free to take images of the things you’d purchase and ask for opinions on gift ideas, the camera won’t disappoint.
The front sensor will hold its ground too with selfies abundant during the festive period, though some might not be as lucky; having to spend this season apart, due to unforeseen circumstances – fret not, the 5-megapixel lens allows 4K video recording, so no pixelated videos during sharing. All that moving around while recording or taking photos during parties won’t hamper the main camera either, since it comes with optical image stabilisation (OIS); there’s also HDR (high dynamic range) on board the two cameras, so the objects and backgrounds of your pictures will have just the right mix of exposure, giving you the best photo.

The device will charge up quickly too, with Samsung’s own fast charge technology on the 3000 mAh battery. You can ditch cables too, if you have the supported Qi Wireless charging dock.
TouchWiz is also less cluttered and more refined, since Samsung streamlining their signature skin based on Android’s operating system. There’s much to love about the Galaxy S6 edge+, a bigger screen, the same great flagship specs, and at a fair price of RM 3,099 (w/ GST), your loved ones would probably love it too.
