Our Verdict for Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Galaxy S6

We have analyzed both the models and bring certain conclusions that these models are not at all economic. Sometimes you would think that you are overpaying while comparing what actually we are getting but quality is something Samsung the name itself brings from long ago. There is a distinct audience of Samsung who can shower the trust and proceed with these models. Reliability is no doubt in blood of Samsung phones by keeping that in mind we can go with adaption of these phones. Though it has certain CONS and PROS.


  • Great design
  • Super sharp screen
  • Fast camera with good low light
  • Smooth glass-and-matte-metal body
  • Improved fingerprint reader, and convenient new camera shortcut key make the phone a stunner.
  • Android 5.0 brings the beauty inside.


  • TouchWiz seemstoo cartoony
  • Likely to be expensive
  • Smaller Battery life

We found modicum amount of differences among Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge and our evaluation of both the phones.

As the name suggests displays are Straight Or Curved

  • Galaxy S6 – 5.1-inch flat panel, 2560 x 1440 pixels, Super AMOLED display
  • Galaxy S6 Edge – 5.1-inch curved panel, 2560 x 1440 pixels, Super AMOLED display

Aside from the curves, both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have identical main screens and, as expected, they step up to native 2k panels from the 1080p resolution seen in the Galaxy S5.

Glass Backs for both the models is a hard decision taken by Samsung We find it very risky though we believe as per the price of phone it should be robust enough.

We see that the backs are no longer removable which seems disappointing we can think that there would be a good motto behind doing it but users may find this clumsy to go with.

Despite of such an expensive phone costs more or less than a laptop user is not guaranteed with the water proofing.

Besides all those points Samsung put a compensation for losses in both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge represent a significant step up in the quality of build materials from the entire previous phone series this is where Samsung may have put money on.

Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge feature upgraded fingerprint sensors which work with a touch rather than needing a swipe which is really cool.

  • Galaxy S6 – 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm (5.64 x 2.77 x 0.27 in) and 138g (4.86 oz)
  • S6 Edge – 142.1 x 70.1 x 7 mm (5.59 x 2.76 x 0.27 in) and 132g (4.65 oz)

Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have actually reduced both their footprints and weight compared to the Galaxy S5. The LG G3 still carries the most compact size/screen size ratio (5.5-inch display in 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9 mm and 149g) which is a very appreciable work from Samsung.

  • Galaxy S6 – 2550 mAh
  • Galaxy S6 Edge – 2600 mAh

The good thing is Samsung boasts that the move to its own Exynos 7420 chipset (more below) is 35% more efficient as is its heavily optimised new version of TouchWiz .
