Why I Switched To Samsung | Ultimate Test Drive


December is upon us again! Can you believe it? I could have sworn that just a second ago it was summer! I can actually still shake off some sand from my boatshoes. Time really does fly doesn’t it? Especially techie-nally speaking. So, numerous new promos and ads for smartphones! Sure, your phone works fine, camera’s ok to a certain extent. But deep down you know it’s time to upgrade! Speed is what attracted me to Samsung, and inevitably caused me to switch. 

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is powered by 1.5GHz octa-core Exynos 7420 processor with 4GB of RAM. The numbers mean that multi-application switching is seamless and quick.


“The best camera is the one with you” – Chase Jarvis

The Samsung Galaxy Edge + has a 16MP Rear Camera with Optical Image Stabilisation and a 1.9 Aperture lens that outshines the competition in terms of clarity, sharpness and low light performance. It is also wide, so less risk of being run over in the street when trying to fit the Eiffel tower into your frame. I travel and I’m on the go most of the time, I need a camera that is responsive and up to the task. Want fast? Double tap the home button and the camera launches in less than seconds flat. One other thing, it can also shoot 4K video.


The screen is a thing of beauty. Sounds funny especially when talking about a phone, but it really is. The Samsung Galaxy Edge+  screen really is immersive especially with the curved super AMOLED display. I can honestly say that the Samsung Galaxy Edge+ has the best display I’ve seen on a phone barnone. How many times have you gotten an “oh wow” when showing photos or videos on your handset? The Galaxy Edge+ has gotten more compliments than a baby dressed as Santa on Christmas!

Be a voice, not an echo. Be Unique. We all now how customisable Android can be, and how straight up in can be with organizing folders photos and videos. Download something? It goes straight into the download folder, neatly and organised. Changing themes, is also possible, to truly make your phone your own.

Aside from the and features, it’s also nice knowing that when you whip out your phone from your back pocket it’ll stand out. It’s that immeasurable appeal of style, what the french like to term as je ne sais quoi, or maybe even what the italians like to call sprezzatura. There’s just something about it.


“May power bank ka?” must be the most repeated question this year, that and “may charger ka” Two lines that strike fear in us, the ever growing epidemic of nomophobia (fear of being without your phone) 3000mah battery laughs at such queries. Did I mention that charging from fully drained battery takes only 90 minutes. Yes.


 A sleek design, impeccable craftsmanship and a gorgeous screen that won’t die on you. What more can you ask for?

Convinced or otherwise? What if I told you that you could test drive either one of Samsung’s flagship smartphones for a whole month. Yes, it means exactly what it sounds like. For a whole month you can put either the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 or the Samsung Galaxy Edge+ through its paces to decide if Samsung really is the ultimate choice. I know it is for me!
