Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 edge selfie camera comparison: vs iPhone 6, Note 4, and S5
UPDATE: You can now read our Samsung Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6s vs LG G4 and iPhone 6 Camera comparison!

According to Samsung, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are the results of 'relentless innovation'. Now, while both phones may look decidedly innovative, we can't just take such statements for granted, can we? We need to put the new devices through a complete set of tests, in order to evaluate their capabilities correctly. And you know what? That's exactly what we're about to do now for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, and their front facing cameras!

So, Samsung's new flagships are equipped with 5 MP front cameras - that's all well and good, but we wonder how their selfie quality is going to compete against some of the top performance in this category? Well, welcome to our selfie camera comparison, featuring the Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6, and the tried and true iPhone 6, Note 4, and Galaxy S5!

Before you go ahead and compare the selfies in the gallery below, please note that the S6 and S6 edge units that we've used here may be running unfinished software, so do keep in mind that their performance may change a bit by the time they hit retail. With that out of the way, browse through the gallery below and let us know if you like what's coming out of the S6's front camera!
