Launching both the phones at the same time seems to put the move a back a bit. Samsung would have been better off launching only S6 edge as it is better as a phone with the edge.

Design of S6 and S6 edge

Both the models are good in ergonomics and design. The lightweight and smooth metal finish is the first in Samsung phones. S6 is better to hold and S6 edge has a more classy look. Also add to it the 5.1 inch screen and it will give competition to iPhone 6, but how much time will tell.

Display

Display is the clincher for the phones. With QHD packeted in a relatively small size it tries to challenge the display of iPhone 6.The S6 edge loses here as there is no real need for the curve if not just good looks. Overall the display packs a punch.

So where does the curve edge comes handy it is of course the Touchwiz.

Touchwiz

The phone has taken a cue from HTC responding gestures like the phone vibrating when in pocket and going silent when flipped over.The specific color glow on the edges for specific calls is a new feature. But is this a clincher for Samsung the users will express when it comes in the market.

Overall I think it is a bit overpriced for a phone which does not bring anything extraordinary to the smart phone market. I would give it a try though.
