Deal: Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 edge can be purchased for $599
The Galaxy S6 edge has been a rather successful device for Samsung. So much so, in fact, that the company has struggled to cope with the demand at times. Whether you're a fan of Samsung products or not, it cannot be denied that the S6 edge is one of the most beautiful smartphones that the market has ever seen. But despite a strong set of features, it does have its drawbacks. If you can look past the fact that it doesn't include a microSD slot or removable battery, the price tag is, for many, a deal-breaker. If you don't wish to pony up $800+, you can save yourself over $200 on one of the most sought after gadgets in town, with the AT&T model available on eBay for $599.99.

Even at the revised price, it's still more than many other flagships on offer. But with a top-notch display, impeccable camera duo and a processor that doesn't include the number '810' anywhere, the S6 edge is much more than just a pretty face. There's talk of an S6 edge Plus hitting the scene at some point in the future, which may feature an even larger display than the 5.1-inch, quad-HD offering of the standard S6 edge. But the mobile industry seems to have hit something of a plateau in terms of what it can provide with each new handset, so if you do grab the S6 edge for just shy of 600 bucks, it'll tide you over for the next couple of years. 

With a regular retail price of $814.99, it's a tidy little saving, and while it is the AT&T version, the handset is listed as unlocked. eBay can be a bit of a minefield at times, so with the discounted price comes that element of risk attached. But still, if $800 is too rich for your taste, have a look at this offer at the source, and let us know if you'll be getting involved via the comments.

Only imorons will compare a crappy iPhone 6 to a Galaxy S6. The S6 is superior in every way to that old tech junk they call the iPhone 6. The S6 has a curved QHD AMOLED display (2560x1440). The iPhone 6 has a mid to low end HD IPS display (1334x750). The S6 has a 16 MP OIS camera which is better in low light, compared to the iPhone 6 NON OIS 8 MP camera. The S6 starts with 32 GB of the fastest storage on any mobile device, where as the iPhone 6 starts with 16 GB of emmc 5.0 storage, which is much slower. The S6 has 3 GB of DDR4 ram vs the iPhone 6 has only 1 GB of DDR3 ram. Now for the things that only the S6 has like IR blaster (universal remote), Gorilla glass 4, Bluetooth 4.1, Wifi direct, wireless charging, multitasking, and multi-window.

You might be right in some points, but according to my experience with both phones, iOS is million time better and faster than TouchWiz.

That's because iOS can't do a million things at once. The S6 can do many things simultaneously. The iPhones just can't. Get real about the million times better and faster. BTW what experience is that with both devices? Making up stories.

Thing is you can always sell your iPhone and buy something else. They hold there value a lot better.

Is that why I can buy a 64 GB iPhone 6 for $500 off contract on ebay. The same device from Apple off contract with taxes out the door costs around $800. So that device lost $300.
