This Is Probably What The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Looks Like

With all the rumors and now some FCC documents to go on, it seems a foregone conclusion that Samsung will be releasing a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge called the S6 Edge Plus. Now there are a few leaked images that seem to show a dummy Edge Plus unit, which gives you a good idea what the real device will look like. It's sitting next to a Note 4 dummy in the pics to illustrate the increased size.

At the time this seemed like a pretty fantastic phone with few drawbacks. Samsung made a lot of changes with this year's Galaxy flagship, so does it also avoid some of the long-term pitfalls of past phones? Let's find out.

SamMobile Reports That The Galaxy Note 5 And Galaxy S6 Edge+ Will Be Announced August 12th, Released On The 21st

A rumor has been circulating that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 5 earlier than usual this year. Instead of debuting at IFA in Berlin sometime in September, it looks like the device will make its first appearance in mid-August. Well, now we have dates. SamMobile seems pretty confident that the Note 5 will get announced on August 12th before hitting store shelves on the 21st. And it won't be alone. The rumored Galaxy S6 Edge+ is apparently coming along for the ride.

Despite the differences in name, think of both devices as larger versions of the S6 and S6 Edge.

[Deal Alert] Unlocked 32GB Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Only $670 On eBay (Over $100 Off)

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge isn't different from the regular S6 on the inside, but the outside is another story. The phone tapers down on both sides to form something that's arguably prettier and harder to hold. Either way, it comes at a higher cost. T-Mobile sells the phone for $780. AT&T wants $815.

Fortunately, you can currently snag one on eBay for $670. That undercuts T-Mobile's price by $110.


The units on sale come with 32GB of storage. They're unlocked, and folks in the States can use them on either AT&T or T-Mobile. Colors offered include black, white, and green.

[Deal Alert] 32GB GSM Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 (G920F) Is Available For $500 Brand New On eBay

You can get the international unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 for $500 with free shipping in the USA right now on eBay in black, white, gold, and that horrific blue. It is brand new and should work on most GSM networks, including AT&T and T-Mobile in the USA. This is an extra $30 cheaper than the deal we found just a couple of weeks ago, not to mention the added benefit of color choice.


For comparison's sake, if you were to buy the AT&T equivalent (G920A), it would run you $685 before tax. Needless to say, this is a substantial discount. The seller describes it as brand new and sealed in its box, which supposedly comes directly from Samsung.

International Galaxy S2 Says Goodbye To CyanogenMod 11, Skips 12.0 Entirely For Fresh Nightly Build Of 12.1 Instead

At this point, custom ROMs are the only things keeping old Galaxy S2s feeling fresh and vaguely modern. If you turned to CyanogenMod as your experience of choice, you've been left stranded on version 11 running Android KitKat. Now you're in for a treat. Fresh builds of CyanogenMod 12.1 are ready for download.

These nightly builds bring Android 5.1 to the four-year-old device. That's nothing to take lightly. These nightlies may not provide the most stable experience, but at this point, that old version of TouchWiz probably isn't either.

The downloads come in at around 230MB and are meant for the international model (i9100).

    MOTA Battery Case For Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: Affordable, Functional, And Some Drawbacks

    If you aren't familiar with the controversy over Samsung's decision to make the S6 and S6 Edge's batteries non-replaceable, you probably don't follow Android news very much. Because you can't just swap out another battery, more people have gotten interested in figuring out how to ensure they have an operating phone after a long day. One method that owners of many smartphones have been using for years is the battery case. While there are tradeoffs involved in putting a case on your phone that is big enough to house a battery, there is a payoff too: no need to find an outlet or juggle wires when your device would normally be running out of juice.
