Looking to buy Samsung’s latest smartphone? You’ll have to pick between these two different models. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are both great-looking devices with plenty of power under the hood, but which one’s right for you?
The two latest Galaxy phones don’t differ much when it comes to specs, though Samsung’s packed a bigger battery into the S6 Edge while somehow cutting down on its overall weight. The main distinctions between the two devices come down to that curved display and the price that comes with it; Samsung hasn’t officially confirmed how much either phone will cost, but we’re pretty sure that curved model will be a little extra.
If you’re willing to pay more for a futuristic design the Galaxy S6 Edge is for you. Otherwise, the standard Galaxy S6 may be the better choice.
