By now you would be thinking, the title of this article reads “comparison” whereas all of above describe “similarity”.

Well, the difference is the looks. If looks could kill, Galaxy S6 edge will take the honours.

Experts are claiming it to be hands down the best looking and best feeling phone Samsung has ever produced.

5.1-inch screen of S6 edge has a smooth curve at the edges and leaves just enough space on the edges for the usual power and volume buttons. Curving of the display screen makes S6 edge a phone that is greatly comfortable in the user’s hand, and Samsung has done it brilliantly.

To some extent, S6 will remind you of HTC One M8.

While talking about the looks of S6 edge, it’s important to note that S6 looks good as well with the usual flat screen with glass & metal updating of the Galaxy S5. Because both phones are being launched at same time, there is an unavoidable comparison between the two. If S6 was on its own, it isn’t bad looking either.
