The reviews of the new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are starting to roll in. The Verge seems first.
But design at this deeper level matters. And it’s something Samsung has chosen – or been forced – to contend with. The Galaxy S6 is the first time I’ve felt like Samsung might finally be grappling with the idea of what a smartphone ought to be on an ontological level. No, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge don’t fully tick off every single box in that checklist. But they’ve done something better: become phones that are more than the collection of their parts.
Samsung finally copied the right thing: caring about design.
Basically, a good-looking phone that feels great in the hand, crazy fast, good, fast camera, and toned-down TouchWiz.
