Back in 2014, Samsung experienced a serious downturn regarding the sales of the Galaxy S5 device. But not to worry, Samsung is back on track and came out with something big this year. The unveiling of the two stellar devices, the S6 and the S6 Edge happened at the MWC in Barcelona (2015). Enough with the small talk and let’s get down to it and have a look at their specs:

Samsung Galaxy 6 Specs: This device has a 5.1 inch screen, 1440 x 2560 Quad-HD Super AMOLED measuring 143.4×70.5 6.8mm and merely weighing 138g. It comes packed with 64-bit 14nm Samsung Exynos 7 Octa processor and 4 cores are clocked at 1.5GHz and four run at 2.1GHz. As far as RAM and storage, it has 3GB of LP DDR4 RAM and you have the following sizes with the storage: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. It operates on Android 5.0 Lollipop (including Touchwiz) and as for connectivity you can opt for: Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, 802.11ac MIMO and so on. Wondering about the camera? Don’t because you have a 5MP front facing one with Auto HDR and a rear 16 MP snapper that has optical image stabilization. This device has a 2550mAh battery which can resist for up to 12 hours (Wi-Fi) , 11 hours on LTE and up to 13 hours for videos and 49 hours for music. The charging process is a wireless one and you can get the phone in white, gold, a light blue shade as well as the traditional black.

Moving on to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: The screen is a 5.1 inch one measuring 1440×2660 with a Quad-HD Super AMOLED curved display. The phone weights 132 g and measures 142×70.1x70mm. It comes equipped with 64-bit 14nm Samsung Exynos 7 Octa processor (4 of them being clocked at 1.5GHz and the other 4 at 2.1GHz). It has 3GB of LP DDR4 RAM and the storage options are the following: 32GB, 64GB as well as 128GB. It also functions on Android 5.0 Lollipop (with Touchwiz as well) and as far as connectivity it works just like the Galaxy 6. It also has 2 cameras included: the front one is a 5MP camera (AutoHDR included) and the rear one which is a 16 MP one, again packed with optical image stabilization. The battery is a 2600mAh one which can last up to 12 on WiFi, 11 hours on LTE, you get up to 13 hours of videos and 49 hours of music. You can buy the Galaxy S6 Edge device in a black shade, white, gold and a green hue.

Final thoughts: In the end these devices mirror one another in more than one way. They come packed with an identical processor, storage & RAM, camera features as well as wireless options. A major difference between the two consists in their overall display. To remind you, the Galaxy S6 has a flat display whereas the Galaxy S6 Edge has a curved displayed instead. Of course, because the Edge gizmo has a curvy look, it gives it that cool appeal and unique touch. And even if the Samsung Edge device doesn’t really offer too many features with its curvy design, users still can’t help but fancy it. Which one do you prefer?
