Galaxy S6 vs Galaxy S6 Edge
Samsung has just released its two new devices, the Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6.
The Galaxy S5 appears to stand out from its predecessors, but how much does it differ from its sibling, the Galaxy S6 Edge?
Does the Edge’s seriously cool curved screen cause it to pip the S6 on design and usability? Here are some of the device’s key features to help you decide.
Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge feature 5.1 inch quad HD Super AMOLED displays of the same 2560x1140 dimensions. So in terms of specs, they match up, however the Galaxy S6 Edge has a curved, dual-edge screen.
At this stage it really comes down for what you’re looking for in a new device.
Technically the Galaxy S6 should be faster as a result of its 6GHz. Both devices feature 3GB of RAM.
Again, the device match up, with both available featuring 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of storage with no support from a microSD card.
A key feature of Galaxy S6 is its wireless charging facility, with a 2550mAh battery. The Edge has wireless charging as well but a larger battery of 2600mAh.
That is a significant difference, especially with a demanding screen display that will eat up a lot of battery.
There are no real camera differences between the two, with both of them owning F.19 lenses and high-res sensors on the 5 megapixels and 16-megapixel rear cameras.
Galaxy S6 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop software as does the Galaxy S6 Edge, so no difference there.
Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have very similar specs, though the S6 has a slightly more powerful battery, but then again a smaller one than the Edge.
In terms of standing out, S6 Edge’s dual-edge display is a unique and quirky feature, so really it comes down to whether you’re looking for the most powerful device, one with a longer lasting battery, or one with a feature like no other.
We have a range of colorful and innovative protective Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge cases now available. They feature FlexShock, a hybrid energy absorbing material that absorbs, dissipates and repels impact away from your device.
