Poll results: Do you think the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is worth $100 more than the regular S6?

Poll results: Do you think the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is worth $100 more than the regular S6?
Available to pre-order since March, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are Samsung's most advanced smartphones to date. They're also the company's first handsets to offer up to 128 GB of internal memory, which means that the most expensive models cost almost $1,000.

Obviously, the Galaxy S6 edge is more expensive than the regular S6. To be exact, it's about $100 more expensive (it doesn't matter if you buy it on contract, off contract, or unlocked).

As you may know, the difference between the regular S6 and the S6 edge is mainly a design-related one: the latter has a curved display that covers its left and right edges, and certainly looks unique among all other smartphones out there. The curved screen does bring some exclusive software features, but owners of the regular S6 can perfectly live without them. Perhaps a slightly more important difference is in the battery department: the Galaxy S6 edge comes with a 2600 mAh battery, while the Galaxy S6 packs a 2550 one.

Not long ago, we asked you if you thought that the $100 price difference between the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge was justified. We now have the answers: 44.46% of all voters (1,151 people) believe that the S6 edge is actually worth $100 more, thus the higher price is justified. On the other hand, 55.54% of voters (1,438 people) aren't convinced that paying $100 more for the Galaxy S6 edge is a good idea.

If you didn't manage to vote in our poll while it was still active, you can let us know what you think about the higher price of the Galaxy S6 edge in the comments section.

As a reminder, both the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will be officially released around the world on April 10.

Pay $100 more for Samsung's best product ever? Why wouldn't you? Seriously, you have a strong research and development team putting together the world's best mobile phone. This takes some heavy overhead costs. With that said, I cannot wait to get my hands on this. Much better offering than anything that stupid fruity company came out with. Maybe Apple would do better if they put a little less focus on sucking butts.

No it's not for everyone. I'd take a 64GB regular S6 over a 32 GB edge any day. It depends on what you prefer more. Design or 100$.

It's fair to say the edge is a gimmick, and not very useful. Having said that, it looks completely kick ass, and I want one, and am willing to pay the $100 premium.

I agree with you 100%, the kind of gimmick that actually nice...

I can agree with this. To me $100.00 for the one of a kind design is really not that much. This phone is special & this phone showcases to the world that Samsung truly can make an awesome sexy device that is durable. Something Apple has YET to master! Samsung flexed some serious muscle & I can't imagine what the Note 5 Edge will look like. All I know is that when the Note 5 comes out, I will be all over it. 128G Note 5 Edge all the way! Developer Edition by the way!!!

I'd definitely pay $100 for Edge given R & D work behind this great device... It's worth paying $100 for Edge rather than paying $300 extra for another row of icons :p

its a gimmick you stuuupid gorilla screw that extra $100, gimme extra storage on my S6

The best "advantage" of the Edge is that it FEELS smaller in the hand. The Edge should have been the ONLY version of the S6. It's pathetic that Samsung is nickle and diming people and extra $100 for the Edge instead of it being the ONLY version of the S6. I am buying a G4 for the removable battery and SD.

In South Africa. The difference per month on contract between the 2 works out to more than $253. Is that worth it. Not so much

Absolutely yes. Who will pay for their newer factory and all their investments in curved displays? The thing is, there are no features that makes it worth it but the S6 Edge gives a more immersive experience when consuming media.

Please explain how outward curves gives a person a more immersive experience? I'm sorry, but that make absolutely no sense. Keep in mind, I plan on buying one, but let's not get carried away here.

When you buy one. You will understand. Watch MKBHD's S6 Edge impressions for more info.

Every hands on review that i have seen says that paying $100 extra for the Edge is worth it just for the design.

8. yoosufmuneer

Posts: 1518; Member since: Feb 14, 2015

Yes. It is worth it. But It depends on the consumer. If he cares about the design and the immersive experience, He could go for it. But if he doens't care about the Edge, there is the GS6 for him.

I was far from impressed when I saw the edge, especially from a design perspective. Some might commend the edge for it's "immersive experience" but others will say that always having all your videos and content curved at the edges is distracting and unnecessary. The standard S6 is a better value and also looks more attractive. But we all have our opinions

Engadget and the Verge say otherwise, but maybe you skipped those.
