Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge First Impression: Designing from Zero Creates Impressive Phones

It is March again so it is time for Samsung to unveil its new flagship smartphone. Last year’s Samsung Galaxy S5 was a disappointment to many, including me, and Samsung felt the need to make the change so the rumoured Project Zero was started: to design the flagship from zero. So here’s the results from their effort, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Both phones are quite similar, except for the dual-curve display found on the S6 Edge.

Samsung Galaxy S6

Let’s start with the ‘ordinary’ S6. The plastic build and the bandage back of the Samsung Galaxy S5 received much more mocking than compliments and Samsung has omitted that design language. This time around, Samsung has opted glass and metal to build the flagship and the results are impressive. The front and back of the phone are covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and the sides are framed by metal, resulting in a design that looks good and feels premium. Even though the glass back is a fingerprint magnet, the way it reflects the light is awesome and the sacrifice is worth the price. Coming at 6.8mm, it is a hair thinner than the iPhone 6. I feel that this is the best-looking phone Samsung has ever made.

HTC One M9 First Impression: The New One that is Haunted by the Successful Old Ones

HTC One M8 is one of my favourite Android phones from 2014 and I really had high expectation for its successor. Finally, HTC is ready to show the world its flagship for 2015, the HTC One M9. The announcement turns out to be quite unsurprising, due to the fact that almost everything has been leaked before the event and the phone itself is lackluster, at least in my opinion.

The Outside

Like the two previous ‘One’s, the industrial design is the highlight on the new HTC One M9. HTC took the best part of the two predecessors and merge them. So what we get is a new phone with a very similar appearance. The aluminium unibody of the One M9 has a dual-tone metal with different finishing: the curved back with brushed hairline finish and the mirror-polished side. It is amazing that HTC can anodize two different colours and provide two kinds of finishes to the same piece of metal. It comes in gold/silver, gold, gunmetal grey and pink/gold This is something unseen and I really like this.

Windows 10 is Upgradable for Free

The most important announcements of the event was that Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for a year for anyone who already owns Windows 7 and Windows 8. This means that you have one year to upgrade your devices after the new Windows is launched, free of charge. This is a great move by Microsoft in convincing more people to try out their new operating system (OS). To be more specific, Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 users will be able to upgrade to Windows 10. However, Windows RT will not receive the upgrade and will instead receive  parts of the new features only.
