The most striking element of the S6 Edge is the much talked about display that curves around the sides of the smartphone. The dual-curved 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display is impressive from any angle and it works well outside and as it is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass you can be assured of a durable long lasting display. The curved edges of the display allow you to check and respond to messages making them highly functional.
