Samsung Galaxy S6 edge vs Samsung Galaxy Note Edge vs LG G Flex 2: specs comparison
Ladies and gentlemen, a new handset with a curved screen has entered the futuristic smartphone arena – after the Galaxy Note Edge with its one-side wrap, and the second iteration of the banana-shaped LG G Flex (the G Flex 2), we now have another phone with a curvy glass – the Galaxy S6 edge, sibling to Samsung's Galaxy S6 flagship.

So, let's compare the new arrival to the already established members in the curved screen arena. Now, since the Note Edge hails from last year's September, its hardware is ever so slightly outdated – it sports the 32-bit, but still potent Snapdragon 805, but it is still armed with the quite prevalent 3 GB of RAM. The G Flex 2 and Galaxy S6 edge are both born in the 64-bit era, so their hardware is a bit more bleeding edge. Let's check all three of them out, side by side!
