Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – Worth the Upgrade?

S6 Edge+_vs_Note_4

Samsung have recently unveiled a stunning new smartphone called the Galaxy S6 Edge+.

The S6 Edge+ is a larger and more powerful version of the original S6 Edge which was launched earlier this year. Samsung have announced that at present they have no plans to release the Galaxy Note 5 in the UK as they expect the new S6 Edge+ to fulfil the needs of Galaxy Note fans in the UK.

So we thought we’d compare the S6 Edge+ with the Note 4 (predecessor to the Note 5) and so Note users can see if it’s worth upgrading.

Similar Specs?

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is similar in size to the Galaxy Note 4. Both boast a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen although the S6 Edge+ offers a slightly better screen resolution at 518 pixels per inch compared to 515 ppi for the Note 4.

The design of the Edge+ is obviously more curvy in shape thanks to the screen which cleverly wraps over both sides of the handset. The Edge+ is also slimmer at just 6.9mm in depth and lighter weighing in at 153 grams as opposed to a thickness of 8.5mm and a weight of 176 grams for the Note 4.

The unique ‘edge’ screens on the S6 Edge+ also offer an advantage over the Note 4 with quick access to contacts to make calls or send emails and messages on one side and frequently used apps on the other.

The Lowdown on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Note 5

Samsung_Galaxy_S6_Edge+Samsung have recently announced two new smartphones, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5. There were rumours that Samsung were keen to unveil the new handsets before Apple launched the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus and they have done just that. Here’s what you need to know about these two high spec mobile phones:

Super Sized Version

The Galaxy  S6 Edge+ is a super sized version of the original S6 Edge with a stunning 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display which compares to the 5.1-inch screen on the S6 Edge. Both the S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ are similar in design boasting a glass and metal build and a curvy shape with the screen wrapping over the sides of the handset. The Edge+ is marginally slimmer than the Edge at just 6.9mm and it weighs in at a pretty light 153 grams.

Motorola have kept the display the same size at 5 inches with a 720p HD resolution screen which gives it a decent but not world beating 294 pixels per inch. Both of the cameras have been improved with a 13-megapixel snapper on the rear and a 5-megapixel camera on the front.

The new Moto G runs on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 with a Snapdragon 410 processor and a minimum of 1GB of RAM. There’s the option of 8GB or 16GB of expandable onboard storage which can be increased to a maximum of 32GB with a MicroSD card.
