Both devices offer some improvements and new appearance, which have finally ditched its traditional plastic builds in favor of a premium metal and glass finish. The Galaxy S6 edge in particular, comes with an added curve to its display that makes it even more striking. In addition, they also posses some key differences that are worth noting.

This makes it stand out significantly from the more traditional appearance of the standard Galaxy S6 model. Aside from the physical appearance, both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge come with the same 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display (2560 x 1440px) with a pixel density of 577ppi.
The Galaxy S6 measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8mm and weighted 138g compared to the Galaxy S6 edge’s dimensions of 142.1 x 70.1 x 7.0mm and weighted 132g, so the Galaxy S6 is slimmer but slightly heavier than the Galaxy S6 edge.
When it comes to battery capacities, the Galaxy S6 offers a 2550mAh non-removable battery while the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge has a slightly bigger capacity which is 2600mAh non-removable battery .
Both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge are available in a wide range of colour options, including white pearl, black sapphire, and gold platinum. However, the Galaxy S6 has an additional blue topaz colour, while the Galaxy S6 edge has a green emerald colour.
The other major difference between the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge is the price. The Galaxy S6 Edge will costs you about $100 more than the regular Galaxy S6. This difference is probably to recoup production costs. if you’re looking for something more stylish, the Galaxy S6 edge is a great choice. However, if you simply want a new smartphone, then go for the Galaxy S6.
Other than that, both devices are mostly the same in terms of specs and the experience from both devices is excellent. Whichever you choose, you’re getting one of the best Android experiences around.
