Having finally seen the device after all the hype and rumours, everything seemed business as usual with the new flagship. Nothing here excited me, and I realised that has been the case with Samsung devices for a couple of years.

As was rumoured, at this year’s MWC conference in Barcelona, Samsung indeed unveiled two flagship devices. The first, of course, is highly anticipated Galaxy S6 – the latest iteration has seen only slight design changes (be sure to read about them here). But Samsung had the other flagship up their sleeves as well, with the launch of the Galaxy S6 Edge.

galaxys6-1What used to be the most anticipated smartphone release of the year has kind of fizzled out to something, let’s just say less exciting.
