Samsung Galaxy S7 edge size comparison vs Note 5, 6s Plus, Nexus 6P, and others

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge size comparison vs Note 5, 6s Plus, Nexus 6P, and others
Unlike last year, when the Galaxy S6 edge was mostly similar to the regular S6, this time around Samsung decided to differentiate the S7 edge from the S7. That's why the former arrives with a larger display and a bigger battery. 

Apart from these two, the rest of the specs are identical, but let's be real here: display size and battery capacity are some rather important metrics.

Indeed, the S7 edge looks like a dream come true for all fans of big-screen phones. We mean, what's not to love? With potent hardware and outstanding design, the S7 edge is ticking all the right boxes. It certainly has our full attention. Still, how does it fare against most of its rivals in terms of size? Check out right below.

The next iPhone must significantly reduce the bezels.

iPhone 6s plus looks bulkiest of the lot.

It's the tallest not bulkiest. Most people associate bulk with thickness.

It's tallest and widest...

Yes, yes it is.

Why must it? It's gonna have larger bezels, and still sell like hot cakes. One thing I hope it keeps, are its side bezels. I hate using my Note 5 without a case, cause the bezels are so thin I get hella accidental screen presses. It looks good, but ergonomically, it's a disaster.

Indeed! Bezels have always been a double-edged sword to me. I actually like the asthetic that the iPhone 6 bezels give, yet the S7 Edge bezels (or lack thereof) are equally alluring. Like you said, though, small side bezels make accidental touches annoyingly common. It will be interesting to see what Apple's next move will be, as Samsung is overtaking them in the design department with the S7 Edge, IMO.

To me they already overtook them in design with the edge and Note. The standard s6 was bland, but the Edge/plus blew away everything.

Really? I used mine without a case the first week as I waited for the case to ship, and I don't remember a single accidental press. I do get them when hovering over the screen just barely - it's very sensitive.

That's you bro lol, I get tons of them and it's very annoying. Don't know how big your hands are, but mine are good size, and it drives me crazy. As I said, it looks good, but it's an ergonomic disaster. Using my iPhone without a case is great. No accidents at all, cause there's some bezel there. No design is gonna be perfect for everyone, they both look great to me, and get the job done and then some. Note is better looking, the iPhone is ergonomically better to me.

Wow, that's quite compact. Samsung finally got the edge right. This year it actually offers 100$ worth more than regular variant.

Any word on whether it is using UFS or NVMe?

It uses ufs, it's faster anyways, it the control that was faster in the iPhone, but mean nothing as you can jot transfer files I.e. Apple iPhone get 0 out of 10, why Samsung get 10 out of 10

15. MedLEB unregistered

I'm sure they are using UFS (Even with SD-Card support).

Humongous iFone looks outdated. Too bad they will stick with that ugly bloated design until the next decade.
