What's the difference between Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge in Malaysia??

Other than the major difference - The shape and the curved edge screen, the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge has this special Edge software, which includes ways to quickly reach and respond to the five most important people in your life. There is also a night mode that can displays the date and time after lights-out.

In Malaysia, there is another additional difference. Where the Blue Topaz Color only available for Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Green Emerald only available on Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Which means if I saw you using the blue one, it is definitely S6; if you are using a Green Emerald, it definitely is Galaxy S6 edge.

Fast and Bright Images with F1.9 Aperture on S6 and S6 Edge


As a photographer myself, I am very happy that Samsung finally did a major upgrade to their smartphone's camera. Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge both has his incredibly vivid, fast and bright f1.9 aperture camera. With the 0.7 seconds "Quick Launch"feature, you can access to your camera in less than a camera and start snapping away.

Aside from the fast camera launch, it capture photos in fast speed too. Even low light photos can be captured in no time with your face smoothen and eye become larger (Samsung built-in Beauty Face in front camera)

As for videography, I find the Smart Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) will be very helpful for you to record stable video footage. Even for a YouTube Vlog. Oh well, I still need to try it out myself to double confirm the quality =)

 You might be spoiled with choices on which cover you want to choose for your brand new Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 edge. There are phone cover with flip cover, and even a semi-transparent flip cover that allows you to answer your call by just swiping on top of the cover. That's quite cool for me =)

I personally think that it doesn't matter what color is your phone, because the screen protector and screen cover is going to personalise your phone even more. You can make it blinky with Swarovski elements like the one below.

If the phone color you are going to buy is out of color, no worries. Just choose a unique casing to make the phone belongs only to you =)

It seems like I forgot to take a photo of the new feature for Galaxy S6. Which is the Wireless Charger. The brand new S6 and S6 Edge has built-in wireless charging device hence you can save the hassle to plug/unplug the cableby charging your phone wirelessly.

I personally think that if the Samsung Galaxy S6 was built with water-resistant like the Samsung Galaxy S5. With additional wireless-charging capability, the S6 will become an even more attractive gadget for traveler likes me. Because I have no worries of bringing it snorkeling in the sea haha. Maybe they are keeping this feature to their next smartphone launch??

I am happy to see that Samsung Galaxy S6 is finally coming to Malaysia and will be made available starting 17 April 2015. I saw the major upgrade from the shape, specs and camera. In Malaysia, S6 is currently only available with 32 GB storage option only but I think it is good enough for most of the smartphone user out there. Just remember to backup your photos and videos from time to time with the provided cloud service kay??

PS: On a side note, after five generation of GALAXY Smartphone, the word "GALAXY"is no longer all caps in their new Galaxy S6 Smartphone Series. Even the worde edge is in small capital. I wonder why =)
