Three brand new Samsung phones off the conveyor belt, the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ all bring a host of features and an ever-beautiful design. But how do they compare to the likes of the older Galaxy S5 and Note 4, which held the Samsung flag aloft for so long?
As always, Samsung put in plenty of effort to produce a selection of new phones which not only look better than ever before, but also cram in a serious amount of power under the hood. Obviously the new Edge display is the biggest change in design on two of these devices, whilst the full metallic construction also shows a big shift in Samsung’s design plans for all three handsets.
Looking past their stylish new chassis’, the S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ all upgrade their internal hardware as well. This includes the likes of the new Exynos 7420 chipsets, which improve speed, and the addition of 3GB RAM, which helps when multitasking. On top of this, the Super AMOLED display has been thrown into action once again for all three phones – with all of them providing QHD quality for an improved viewing experience.
If photography is more your cup of tea, then none of these new Samsung smartphones will disappoint. All three handsets sport a 16 megapixel lense with 2160p (4K) video recording quality. Meanwhile, selfies will be handled with by 5 megapixel front facing cameras, all of which do a great job in snapping the perfect self-portrait.
New features on the Edge displays allow you to access favourite contacts and settings faster than you could on the likes of the S6 and Note 4, whilst Android Lollipop comes pre-installed on all three – with a planned Marshmallow update on the cards as well.
So, whilst the S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ might all cost a little bit more than their older compatriots, they’re certainly worth the increased cost, providing more power, better designs and sharper snappers.
