Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ vs Galaxy S6 edge vs Galaxy S6: specs comparison
While Samsung vowed to reduce the number of devices it churns out per year, it made no promises in terms of stuffing existing lines with new products. The Galaxy S series is a prime example this year, with the Galaxy S6 edge coming out together with the regular, traditional even, Galaxy S6, and now, 5 months later — the Galaxy S6 edge+.

In a sense, knowing the Galaxy S6 means you know the Galaxy S6 edge, which means you also understand the value proposition of the Galaxy S6 edge+. It's the S6 edge on steroids, with a larger footprint and more space for you to go nuts whilst riding the tube on your Wednesday morning. That exhilarating  Hey, there's also a gig of RAM extra. But not much else.

Here's exactly how its specs sheet compares to that of its brethren:
