How fast is the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge? We already know the phone is tough and ready for rough use according to a recent drop test video we've seen but is the phone speedy enough? The South Korean tech giant boasts that the Samsung Exynos 7 Octacore processor makes the Galaxy S6 edge very fast. This is the first time Samsung has ditched the Qualcomm Snapdragon for its very own Exynos processor. It seems to be a good decision now that there's a demo video proof that the Samsung Exynos 7 is faster than the A8 processor used on the iPhone 6.
