Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (SIM Free / UK)
Just like the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Edge differs with an angled edge on both sides of the display to offer a unique design but also offers enhanced functionality options such as quick access to contacts and space for a clock at night.

The 2015 model of the successful Samsung Galaxy smartphone series, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge incorporates the very latest mobile technology and boasts a unique dual edge display that can be customised to enhance your use and productivity of the handset.
Virtually re-designed from the ground up the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge no longer uses plastic found on previous Galaxy models, instead, we have a blend of aluminium and Corning Gorilla Glass 4, offering a solid and premium in hand feel.
Such material change means that, no longer, is there a removable back cover; instead the battery is fixed internally, as is the memory.
However, what may be considered a negative is made up for by the immersive display that offers a massive 577 Pixels Per Inch (PPI) thanks to a 5.1” Super AMOLED display with Quad HD resolution.
The Edge takes the display to a whole new level with both the right and left side offering shortcuts and customisation. Quickly access regular contacts by a swipe or display a clock at night when sat on your bedside table.
Lay the screen face down and the edges will illuminate a colour that matches a favourite contact so that you can know who is calling before picking the handset up thanks to a subtle, but ingenious, solution.
A complaint with screens has always been visibility outside in
Whilst the edge display is unique to look at and watch media on, it does not affect the image or the viewing angles. More detail, more clarity and an on-screen experience that is even more impressive than devices of past.
Power & Connectivity
Opting for the Edge will likely mean you are a power hungry user and like to be doing many things on your smartphone. Thanks to an octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM which accompanies the 32, 64 or 128GB of internal storage you should experience no slowdown and be able to remain at the peak of productivity when in the office, home, or on the go.
The provided Microsoft One Drive access offers 115GB of online storage for 2 years for no extra cost and other services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, and more, are all available and easily integrated with the S6 Edge.
Whether you wish to browse the internet for the latest news, fashion trends, or to book your holiday, the super fast 4G connectivity, or WiFi, will allow you to do so.
Use Bluetooth to pair to accessories such as car kits or audio systems and stream audio and files to them.
Wherever you are in the world you should be able to remain connected and in touch with the world around you. Use it for work to send files and documents, or for personal access to websites and social media outlets.
Charged via a micro-USB cable, this same port allows you to connect it to a computer, take advantage of USB hosting and, with the appropriate MHL adapter or cable, you can output the screen of your S6 Edge to a larger HD display. Ideal for sharing content with friends, family and colleagues.
Installed on the internal memory of the S6 Edge is the latest version of the Android 5.0 operating system. From the moment you power on the device you have full access to the Google suite of apps and, of course, Google Play store which is home to hundreds of thousands of free and paid for apps.
Android 5.0 also offers:
- Material design - a bolder, more colourful interface for Android
- A new power saving mode that can extend battery life by up to 90 minutes
- Better power management tools
- Improved notifications: respond from your lock screen, or turn on priority mode to reduce them to the bare minimum. If you're watching a movie, notifications are automatically turned off and you're given the choice of whether or not to answer incoming calls.
- Multiple user accounts: have more than one sign-in for your phone or tablet. Previously this feature had been reserved for tablets only but is now available for phones on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
- Improved security against malware
- SmartLock: pair your Android with another trusted device and it will only unlock when the two are paired.
Capture stunning images from the rear 16-megapixel camera, which is capable of UDH or 4K video recording.
An upgraded front-facing 5-megapixel camera which will give even more clarity for those video calls, selfies or dual camera shots.
Enhanced camera functionality ensures lower light shots return better results from the F1.9 aperture and the dual tone LED flash.
We have all had moments when we wish to capture that image but the opportunity passes us by because we cannot load the camera quickly enough. Well, with the S6 Edge, the Quick Launch option will give quick access to the camera with a double tap of the home button. Launch and be ready to capture in just 0.7 seconds.
Have you ever considered how much data is on your phone and what it is really worth to you?
Whilst Android offers password and PIN code security options, more robust security options like fingerprints ensure the data does not get into the wrong hands. Onboard the S6 is a reworked fingerprint scanner that offers improved security and reliability.
Where corporate data is stored on the phone and is perhaps more sensitive than personal content, Samsung KNOX offers an end-to-end solution for a secure mobile platform. Defence grade features to offer protection from threats.
Find My Mobile is a feature that secures lost devices and protects information through a number of services. All of this offers you peace of mind if the worst should happen.
All of these features if used to their full
Now included in the Galaxy range is Qi wireless charging, but not as an optional extra, this is included out of the box. All you need is a Qi-enabled wireless charging pad.
Also available on the S6 Edge is fast wired charging that, in just 10 minutes, will provide enough power for up to 4 hours of real-world usage.
All of this built into a device that is just 6.8mm thin and weighs 138g.
Available in an array of colours to suit your style and personality, be it White, Black, or Gold you can, in turn, personalise the device and protect it with accessories for the S6 Edge that include S-View covers and wallets.
Stock Origin & Compatibility
All our phones are SIM Free & Factory Unlocked, compatible with UK, EU & most global SIM cards, with support for global GSM & 3G networks. For 4G/LTE & 5G support outside of Europe, please check the specifications.
Clove Technology primarily obtains stock from a manufacturer's official UK supply chains. These products will be displayed as a 'UK Model'.
Occasionally Clove source products from the European mainland. These will be marked as an 'EU Model', supplied factory sealed with a 2pin EU mains charger or 'EU Convert', opened to swap to a UK charger and resealed.
EU sourced phones will have a full warranty and are compatible with all UK networks. We do not source any products from Hong Kong or other Asian markets.
If you order an EU Model or Convert then you may find that Samsung Pay is unavailable, even if it is supported in your country.
This is because Samsung restricts the use of Samsung Pay so that it only works with banks registered in the same country as the phone's origin.
The origin country is recorded in the phone's firmware and cannot be adjusted by end users. At this time we are unable to advertise the exact origin country of EU Models prior to sale.
If you require the use of Samsung Pay in the UK, we would recommend avoiding an EU Model or Convert, although if Google Pay is available and acceptable to you, this will be available to download and unaffected.
Samsung Region Lock
Samsung implements a 'region lock' on all new smartphones. This restricts use of SIM cards to the original region their phones are intended to be sold in.
Clove Technology sells Samsung phones intended for the “European” region, which covers the UK, mainland Europe and some other select territories. The full list is below.
If you are ordering for delivery to a destination outside of this list, we will need to activate the phone prior to shipping, so that you can use a local SIM card.
To activate the phone, we must turn it on, complete set-up with a European SIM installed, then make at least 5 minutes of continuous voice call with this SIM.
Without activation, you can only use the device outside of the listed countries if 'roaming' with a SIM card from the intended sales region.
If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock if you attempt to use a SIM card from outside of these regions.
COUNTRY LIST: **All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.
IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.
