Beauty Meets Purpose

Carefully crafted from metal and glass, the GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge blend purposeful design with powerful features. The GALAXY S6 edge, particularly, shows unique and outstanding beauty while also providing a solid grip and an immersive viewing experience with the world’s first curved display on both sides. Its glass body, made from the toughest glass to date, Corning® Gorilla Glass® 4, is available in an array of colorful jewel tones, including White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz and Green Emerald, which elicit a unique visual texture as it reflects natural light. This timeless design required first-of-its-kind glass crafting technology and unmatched quality control, setting the GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge apart from every other mobile device on the market. The premium device aesthetics deliver true value and are complemented by a totally new and lighter interface that greatly enhances usability and functionality. A refined and fully optimised user experience simplifies applications and offers features and settings in a more intuitive way.

Vivid Images with a Fast, Bright Camera

The GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge are equipped with incredibly vivid, bright and fast front and rear cameras. The F1.9 lenses and high resolution sensors on both front (5MP) and rear (16MP) cameras provide the most superior image quality in a smartphone, even in low light conditions. In addition, Auto Real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR), Smart Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and White Balance Detect through IR provide advanced light sensitivities and crisp camera solutions. Furthermore, a new “Quick Launch” feature give users fast, direct access to the camera from any screen in just 0.7 seconds* by simply double clicking the home key button. These advanced camera functions enable users to capture their most precious and personal moments in uncompromising quality, however and wherever they want.

Super Charging and Cord Free

With fully embedded WPC and PMA certified wireless charging technology, the GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge are setting a new industry standard for universal wireless charging. The devices work with any wireless pad available in the market that supports WPC and PMA standards. They also sport incredibly fast wired charging, 1.5 times faster than the GALAXY S5, providing about 4 hours of usage after only 10 minutes of charging.*

Cutting-edge Core Technology

The thin (6.8 mm/7.0mm edge) and lightweight (138g /132g edge) GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge integrate the most advanced, cutting-edge, Samsung core technology available today. The world’s first 14nm mobile processor with 64-bit platform, new LPDDR4 memory system and UFS 2.0 flash memory provides higher performance and enhanced memory speed with lower power consumption. Moreover, the world’s first mobile 1440P/VP9 hardware based decoder enables users to enjoy high resolution streaming video while also using less power. In addition, the 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen offers users the highest pixel density of 577ppi. Enhanced outdoor visibility with a brighter display (600cd/mm) lets consumers experience content without compromise – anywhere, at any time.

Easy and Protected Mobile Payment

Samsung Pay, a new, easy-to-use mobile payment service that will be compatible with more locations than any competing offering in a single application, will launch on GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge in the United States during the second half of this year. Protected by Samsung KNOX, fingerprint scanning, and advanced tokenisation, Samsung Pay works with both Near Field Communication (NFC) and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology to make it device, merchant and card issuer agnostic.

Enhanced Security

The GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge are built on the upgraded Samsung KNOX, end-to-end secure mobile platform, offering defense-grade features for real-time protection from potential malicious attacks. Both of these new devices are also ready for immediate enterprise adoption, with market leading MDMs and KNOX enhancements enabled at launch to simplify and improve mobile device management. Additionally, the Find My Mobile feature secures lost devices and protects personal information through a number of services, including the all new remotely controlled “Reactivation lock.” With an enhanced touch-type fingerprint scanner, it also provides quick authentication and saves encrypted data in secure device storage.

The GALAXY S6 and GALAXY S6 edge will be available globally starting from April 10, 2015 with 32/64/128GB storage options available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz (GALAXY S6 only) and Green Emerald (GALAXY S6 edge only).

Drake: ”If you reading this, its too late” album

So while Drake has been in the media alot lately, for a whole bunch of reasons in which some was good and others not at all. He was secretively working on a full 17 track album mixtape, which in saying has more tracks than his ”Nothing was the same” album. The album went by the title ”If you reading this, it’s too late”.

Drake released the album over a tweet and than saw the album being dropped in iTunes on Thursday the 12 February. The full 17 tracks show a variety of big name producers which we have seen in other albums which was nothing short than banger beats. Producers such as Boi-1da, PartyNextDoor, Travis Scott and Wondagirl all add the killer beats to allow Drake to release a top-quality album. The album had been trendy on twitter all weekend with comments of appreciation, surprise, respect, love and hate.

What are your thoughts of the album? Let us know what you think and if you were ever ready.

The album which has already topped charts world-wide (and it has not even been a week) with reaching number 1 spots and is also projected to sell over 500 000 copies over the weekend alone.

The ”Ripped Jeans” Trend

It quite funny how all these fashion styles and trends all seems to make it’s way back onto the run way and back into our closet’s. But when we think back to when we were growing up, as kids our mom bought us clothes and because of our nature or that sense of adventure, these new items of clothes soon became ripped and teared. Your mother would let you continue wearing it until it no longer fitted or it was just past the stage of wear and tear. But as soon as you visited your grandparent’s house, you knew that you would get a little scolding as you were not allowed to be in their house wearing any broken clothes at all.

As an adult, if you walked into your grandparents house today wearing or let me say rocking your ‘’Ripped Jeans’’ that same reaction you got when you were a kid would still be waiting for you. Having to explain that it is a trend or the latest fashion trend still seems an endless discussion in which you still walk away after having to apologise to grandma for wearing broken ripped jeans.

So why not lets see if we can help you out on this one, it has been seen on street-styles all across the world and even the biggest celebs in the scene would have been seen rocking the ripped jeans.

Check out the latest looks in the trend and let us know what you think? Are you buying the ready-made ripped jeans this season or would you be creative enough to be ripping your own jeans.
