How do you choose between two luxury supercars? That’s the dilemma a lot of Samsung fans are probably finding themselves in right now.
You already know that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are among the top Android phones available. Now the question becomes: which version should you choose? The two are virtually identical, save for one major difference: the S6 Edge has two miraculous, sloping edges, giving it a distinctive look and feel compared to other phones on the market.
To be fair, Samsung hasn’t quite figured out how to best utilize the Galaxy S6 Edge’s unique design. But the device is still a joy to use, and the main thing is that the curved screen doesn’t detract from the experience. You might not actually find yourself putting the device facedown and screening calls based on what color the display glows. But, hey, there’s no arguing how cool the feature is.
Based on my time with the regular Galaxy S6, I can say that the flat screen is more than enough, especially since the curved sides of the Galaxy S6 Edge don’t really add any killer features. Not to mention the Galaxy S6 is $100 cheaper than the Galaxy S6 Edge, which is no small sum.
Below you can see the full spec sheet for each device, along with a handy gallery to see how the designs differ. For more extensive thoughts on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, check out the video above.
