Samsung Galaxy S6 or the S6 edge? Spot the six differences

Samsung Galaxy S6 or the S6 edge? Spot the six differences
Samsung took the stage today, and unveiled not a flagship, but rather two - the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge - which are seemingly one and the same handset, just that the S6 edge comes with a slightly bent display on the sides.

Upon closer inspection, however, the Galaxy S6 edge is different enough from the stock S6 to (nudge, wink) warrant a higher price tag, just as the Note Edge is to the Note 4

Some of these differences are artificially created by Samsung, like the exclusive colors that are only present on one of the two devices, while others separate the two in a more organic way, such as the dimensions and weight. Check out all the differences between the two new Samsung flagship, and tell us which one would you like to grab.

"6. Weight With glass substrate comes a heavier 138g chassis for the Galaxy S6, while the S6 edge and its light, flexible display, will feel slightly different in your hand at 4.66oz (132g)" Isn't the "light, flexible display" of S6E made of glass? Hasn't the S6E less metal, so it's lighter because of it?

I will thinking for next month or so which one to take and than G4 will come out. Than I will have to think even harder and when I decide Z4 will get out. Than the hype will start making around IP 6s and Note 5. Sht, this way I will never change Alpha...

What's ugly is that shade of green on you. Especially when it's lit by the red glow from your hurt butt.

If it comes to T-Mobile in green, I may just trade my N5 in for the Edge to hold me over until the next Nexus season. I haven't been this interested in a Samsung phone since 2011 brought us the S2 and Galaxy Nexus.

Unfortunately, T-Mobile almost never picks up the special colors. I'd be surprised if either came in anything other than black or white for the carrier.

Can't you read that he said "I think"

33. g2a5b0e unregistered

I can read just fine, *ssh*le. People don't always say what they mean.

S6 Edge- just not sure if the $100+ higher price will convince me.

well it is a premium version like the note edge. harder to make so more costs i guess

9. GeekMovement unregistered

Yeah, the Note Edge I was a bit iffy about since it only had the curve to one side along with a smaller battery size, but the S6 Edge is shaping up to be great and worth it.

Garbage from Samsung. Now I will wait for the Note 5 for sure..Bring back my micro SD, Bigger battery, and S Pent + slimmed touchwhiz and dare I say it 4 GB of DDR 4 RAM.

25. g2a5b0e unregistered

Don't be surprised if the Note 5 has a smaller, non-replaceable battery than the Note 4 & no micro SD too. Wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing in my eyes (as long as the battery life is just as good or better than the Note 4), but the trend seems to be heading that way.

And how much will you be ready to pay for it?
