Now that the Samsung has finally acknowledged the rumors going around in the tech town by announcing a dual curve screen variant. Though, the question no longer is an edge screen useful, but whether if the two curved edges would be better than one? We find out in this showdown between the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
With new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, Samsung finally achieved to a point where it has to offer metal body, which means no flimsy plastic body in consumer’s hands. Company now knows how to make their handsets feels premium rather than just pricing them higher. Both the devices are obsessively crafted from metal and glass, covered in toughest Gorilla Glass 4 protection. While the dimensions and weight are almost similar between these two flagships, but you can’t ignore the fact that S6 Edge looks more beautiful and has Edge over S6 when it comes to the attractiveness. As well as the dual-Edge screen makes it feel compact when holding in one hand, from either side. While that was not the case with Note Edge, which just felt weird. If one keeps an open mind, then, S6 Edge is a combination of innovation and great usability, which is a step forward from Note Edge, company’s first curved display smartphone.
The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are rolled out with Super AMOLED Quad-HD (2560 x 1440) display, which has packs a massive 3,686,400 pixels on its panel, i.e. only 5.1-inch. It results in the highest pixel density on any 5.1-inch smartphone, which is around 576 PPI (pixel per inch). While it’s all sharp and beautiful on both the displays on S6 and S6 Edge, we couldn’t stop and recall our experience with Note Edge. As if ever the S6 edge falls, it will be more prone to damages on display rather than the S6. As with dual edge screen, the fall of these two may result in injuring S6 Edge more over the S6.

According to the company, they have tweaked the edge screen interface that we found on Note Edge. There are few more utility apps on S6 Edge apps, which makes it more useful than the S6. There can be real life usage scenarios for the Edge Screen. When Edge is lying on the desk upside down, and your notifications comes, you don’t necessarily need to pick up the device. It would blink a familiar light by which you would understand if it’s a message/call from someone important or not. While there can’t be any such operation seen on S6, as it has no curved screen.
Samsung Equipped Galaxy S6 Edge with 2600mAh battery, which is slightly larger than what can be seen on S6. According to the company, the battery on S6 Edge would give you up to 12 hours of browsing on a full charge. Though, it cannot be said right now if that rating would hold up or not, we would know once the curvy flagship comes in hand for review.
There is no final saying until both the devices come into our hands. Though, to conclude this chapter here, it can be said that Samsung Galaxy S6 should be your choice if you’re not into the edge screen display, and the all metal body upgrade is enough for you. While for those who craves innovation and something unique, it would be a smart choice to go with Galaxy S6 Edge.
