Since their debut into the Android platform with the release of their Galaxy S2, Samsung has managed to influence the world of smartphones. Though in the recent years, there have been a variant of smartphones with a competing advantage, Samsung still holds the top spot with their lineup of smartphone devices in the market today. Most users who are familiar with the Android devices in their portfolio, know the ‘Galaxy’ models all too well, but what are some of the Samsung high-end devices that stand out:
Galaxy Note 5
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 was first launched in August 2015. Featuring a new language design of the Galaxy S device, the Note 5 is a 5.7 inch smartphone similar to Galaxy S6 Edge + with a slightly curved back and is complemented with a handy S pen. Its software and hardware has been revamped for pen input and it features an excellent camera. However, it doesn’t come with an expandable storage and its 3000 mAh battery is irremovable.
Galaxy S6 is Samsung’s 2015 flagship smartphone, released in April 2015, it succeeds the preceding Galaxy S devices which are updated year after year. The Galaxy S6 has all the features you would expect from a flagship. With an improved software including a few Microsoft apps, this device also moved from plastic to a glass cover both at the front and at the back.Though it features a non-removable battery and lacks an expandable memory, the S6 has a 32 GB built-in memory and its 2550 mAh battery capacity is equipped with quick and wireless charging.
Galaxy S6 Edge
A follow up of Galaxy S6, the S6 Edge is somewhat similar to Galaxy S6 with a few omissions. With the curves on both the left and the right edges, the phone has an extremely thin look which adds a cool visual to the screen. This includes an interesting desk clock mode, notifications even when the phone is face-down and a favorite contact list feature on the edge of the phone. These outstanding edge screen features are definitely worth a try.
Galaxy S6 Edge+
Released in August 2015, Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a cousin to Galaxy S6 Edge only that it is bigger with an increased battery capacity.
Galaxy Note 4
Galaxy Note 4 pushed the boundaries of Galaxy S5 with its refreshed new Samsung technology. Trading the plastic casing, the Note 4 is coated with metal all-round and is complemented with a 5.7inch QHD display. Its powerful 16 MP camera is equipped with an OIS sensor. The Note 4 also comes with an S Pen which has a handful of useful benefits especially on the device’s multi-window setup. If you love big phones, the Note 4 is for you.
Galaxy Note Edge
A revised version of the Note 4, the Galaxy Note Edge was also a September 2014 release right after the Note 4. The Note Edge is refined with curve screen on the right side of the phone’s display. This screen referred to as the ‘Edge Screen’ offers a separate innovative panel serving as an app launcher for smaller running apps. This software panel is one of the notable features of the Galaxy Note Edge, other than that it is similar to the Note 4.
The 5.1- inch Galaxy S5 is better hold than most of the Samsung devices on the list. This Galaxy S4 upgrade features everything you would expect from Samsung. The last of the Galaxy S devices with plastic covering the edges, the S4 is powered by Snapdragon 801 processor which runs on a 2GB RAM. Galaxy S5 also happens to be waterproof, which make it worth it.
