If you are one of those lucky one who own a Samsung Galaxy S6 then you might want to do and learn everything that you can do with your phone, especially when it comes to its innovative edges. If you are looking to customize your S6 you should know first that only one edge of your phone will be operational at a time. So, before you begin setting up the edge screen, you must first decide the side. You can always change the sides later.

Check out our post in case you're wondering What Odin Version You Need For Your Phone.

People Edge

This option lets you chose 5 contacts as favorites which can be accessed from the edge screen. Through this option you can also assign different colors to each contact. Upon receiving calls or text messages from these contacts your phone will light up in the color assigned to that particular contact. You can also send a quick message or call these favorite contacts without going to the dialer or the messaging app.

Quick Reply/Rejection

This option comes in real handy when someone from your favorite contacts call or text you and you're not able to attend them right away. Through the color of the lights blinking you'll know who the person is and then by simply placing a finger over the heart rate sensor (at the back of your phone), you can send a preconfigured message to the person calling you.

The Smart Edge Screen as a Power Saver

Turning on your screen every time you want to check for a notification or your clock is not something that you love to do. With Samsung Galaxy's smart Edge Screen you can do yourself a world of favor. Missed notifications, clock and things like stock ticks and sports scores can be easily accessed through edge screen (without powering on the main screen). This also helps in saving the battery, big time.

New Theme Engine

The edge screen might be the main reason why you have bought your new S6 but it is not the only thing you can customize. Samsung has introduced its all new theme engine, which lets you customize the overall look of your phone easily. Also, you can easily play around with various fonts.

Home Screen

When it comes to homes screen there is no limit to customization. You can set as many number of pages on your home screen as you like, set their orders and how they appear with different icons and themes. While customizing the home screen on your Samsung Galaxy S6, almost everything that you can imagine is doable.
