With the arrival of Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge, the question is no longer, “Is a curved screen useful?” but, “Are two curved edges better than one?”
We haven’t quite had enough time to figure that out, but we like where Samsung is headed. These two devices are unlike anything on the market, and we here at TechnoBuffalo like different; it keeps the mobile market fun, and challenges our perception of what a mobile device can, and should, be.
Let’s be honest: the specs of these two juggernauts is irrelevant. But they do differ in a few key ways, and, no, I’m not talking about the screen. Even though the Galaxy S6 Edge comes with a sleeker design and improved fingerprint scanner, the Note Edge offers a removable battery and microSD slot, two very, very big features Samsung fans love.
Does the allure of two curved edges draw you in?
