Looks more premium

One thing to note is that the S7 Edge feels extremely fantastic in the hand, but the S6 Edge feels more premium. The reason behind this is that the smoother curves and edges on the S7 Edge make it awesome for ergonomics but it also makes the metal at the sides less noticeable.

The metal rim on the Galaxy S6 Edge cuts comfortably in your hand and provides a sharper feel. This results in being the more premium than the S7, The Galaxy S6 Edge is fantastic if you are one who prefers a phone to feel like it is a flagship smartphone that is worth the flagship price tag.

The S6 takes higher resolution 16:9 photos

The Galaxy S7’s camera is one of the best in the current market. It is far much better in the low light conditions than any other Sammy flagship. The downside is that is only a 12MP unit and captures photos in the 4:3 ratio. Those upgrading to the S7 from the S6 wound find themselves being limited in terms of how much they can zoom in a pic for finer details.

With 4:3 ratio, seeing these photos on another big screen device shows you black bars on the sides and this is also the case on a phone’s display. It is never a good feeling to see pictures like that, but it is what you get bearing in mind how most display use the 16:9 ration nowadays.

It has been updated with Android Marshmallow

Unlike other manufacturers who release an update to the new models, Samsung had an awesome idea of going steps further by establishing a beta test period. This enabled the S6 series to be updated before they were launched at the MWC 2016 in Barcelona.

The price is quite reasonable

The Samsung S6 has a more reasonable price that when it was announced. The handset was launched with a price tag of $750, but it is now priced at $500. With Christmas holidays just around the corner, there are many offers that are expected to lower the price to $450. Just be a little patient.
