Galaxy S6 Edge vs HTC One M9 spec shootout

by Brandon Russell | March 4, 2015March 4, 2015 1:15 pm PDT

There are situations where we wish there could be two winners. In this case, there’s no reason we can’t like both phones. Or, how about we just dream of combining the two into one? No, that’s not right.

Despite our early infatuation with both phones, they are quite different, a divide between these two companies that’s been there for years. I won’t bore you with descriptions of each phone, or break them down feature for feature.

Instead, take a look at the spec sheets below. That should clear up any questions you might have. If you’re like me, it’ll just further reinforce your hope that one day we can combine the two into one amazing dream phone.
