Poll results: Galaxy Note Edge vs Galaxy S6 edge - which curved screen do you like more?

Just a few days ago, Samsung finally unveiled the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge – its double-curved sibling. There's been a lot of speculation on how the latter is going to look, function, and – most importantly – handle, as the two arches were often rumored about, but seldom had any reliable information leaked about them.

Well, now we know – the Galaxy S6 edge's arches are much shallower than what we saw on the Galaxy Note Edge, which came half a year before it. This allows for the phone to sport a thicker frame around its sides, making it easier to hold. On the flip side, Samsung chose to do away with the Edge panels, which were introduced on the phablet, and gave the S6 edge's curves a limited set of functions – a night clock, favorite contacts, and color-coded glowing for when select contacts are calling were among the ones showcased at MWC 2015.

So, we asked you, our readers – do you prefer the asymmetrical curve of the Note Edge, which houses various Edge panels, or the functionally simplified, but sleeker and balanced looks of the Galaxy S6 edge? Well, according to the poll, two thirds of modern smartphone consumers are interested in simplified, straightforward functions and symmetrical looks more than feature-packed, but unorthodox designs with debatable levels of practical usability.

So, will you be buying a Galaxy S6 edge?

Phablets are nice, but reasonable sizes are still better for general usage and pockets. I'm waiting for S6Edge preorders.

Can't wait to see what the Note 5 Edge will look like. It should be beautiful and a powerhouse.

You mean the same type of curved edge that the Galaxy S3 had three years ago?

The Note Edge is a beautiful piece of hardware and is not the fingerprint magnet that the S6 is. I use my smartphone to watch TV shows, movies and a lot of streaming from Hulu and Netflix. My LG G2 with it's 5.2" screen has fared well in this task. Now I'm ready for for a bigger screen such as the 5.6" Note Edge provides or the 5.5" of the LG G3, We still have to wait to see what LG G4 will bring. I'll go bigger but never smaller than the 5.2. Everyday I notice that I use my computer less so a phablet sized phone will serve me better than the S6 Edge,

I don't have the biggest hands and I actually feel the Note Edge as compact, even a bit small. Definitely not bulky like other people keep saying.

That colour coded notifications, that only works for favourite contacts? I thought it was a way of notification for any calls or texts or any missed event etc.!

I saw the polls and quite honestly I'm surprised. Either the android folks have list their way or the apple people have voted like crazy. If an Android user is picking looks over functionality, that should be the end of android.

Edge for sure! It's all about function!
