5 things that the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge has over the Apple iPhone 6s Plus

The Galaxy S7 edge is out in all its dual-curved glory, and it is a beauty to behold. Samsung didn't change much about its design language, when compared to the Galaxy S6 edge+, but gave it a facelift, softening the corners and making it look noticeably more refined than its predecessor. As can be expected, the Galaxy S7 edge also rocks the best of the best in terms of currently available hardware – the Snapdragon 820 (or Exynos 8890 outside of the US), 4 GB of RAM, a very impressive camera, and a 5.5-inch QHD (1440 x 2560) Super AMOLED display.

While last year Samsung may have overdone it a bit, with a 5.1-inch Galaxy S6, a 5.1-inch Galaxy S6 edge, and then a 5.5-inch Galaxy S6 edge+ after some months, this time around the manufacturer seems to have narrowed its focus down a bit. The “regular” Galaxy S7 is the standart-sized 5.1-inch flagship from the company, while the Galaxy S7 edge has a phablet-class 5.5-inch display, creating a much more obvious difference between the duo of announced handsets.

It's only natural that comparisons will be drawn and decisions will have to be made by customers who are looking to buy a new phablet early this year. And one of Sammy's biggest competitors is, of course Apple, who's newest smartphones are the regular-sized iPhone 6s and its giant sibling – the iPhone 6s Plus. So, phablet-a-phablet, what does the Galaxy S7 edge have over the iPhone 6s Plus? Let's check it out!
