HANDS ON EXPERIENCE:
The highlight of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is the curved display and the design. Let’s discuss the design first. Between the regular S6 and S6 Edge, the latter has a more striking look. If you put all the flagship phones side by side – the Sony Xperia Z3, LG G3, Apple iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will stand out. The reason is that curved display.
The display is not just unique because it is curved but it also beautiful. Having an extremely sharp 5.1-inch curved display with 577 pixels per inch really impressed us. Obviously it is perfect for movies and playing games. However, the curved display does not do that much. When it comes to function, we prefer the regular Galaxy S6.
If you want to stand out, get the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. But we strongly suggest that you get the regular Galaxy S6 instead. It is cheaper especially if you are not after the software gimmicks on the S6 Edge.
