What gives the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge an 'edge' over the regular S6?

72

What do you get with that higher price tag on the Galaxy S6 edge, and is it worth it?

Samsung is making some bold moves this year, and the Galaxy S6 line of devices is unlikely to be the only place we see such sweeping changes. Both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge represent not only a new hardware design language, but a refined software experience that most of us here are more than a little excited to spend some extra time with. One of the big questions we've seen in the forums about these two devices has a lot to do with Samsung justifying the existence of the Galaxy S6 edge. Specifically, why someone would choose to spend more money on a pair of curved edges and what the benefits to those curves actually are.

It's a question Samsung will undoubtedly be spending quite a bit in the way of marketing dollars to explain soon, but the bottom line with the Galaxy S6 edge is style and convenience. As long as those are things that matter to you, the Galaxy S6 edge is likely calling your name right now.
