Galaxy S6 Edge vs Galaxy S7 Edge: 5 Key Differences





Samsung's always had amazing screens inside of their smartphones, and the new Galaxy S7 Edge is no exception. In fact, it has the same 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD resolution, but Samsung still made it better than last year. It has already won some awards, and will likely win more.

The Galaxy S6 Edge was only 5.1-inches, while the new Galaxy S7 Edge is 5.5-inches in size. Meaning the pixel density won't be as high, but the screen should still look amazing.

The Galaxy S7 Edge coming in at 5.5-inches makes it the perfect middle ground between the two options last year. The regular Galaxy S6 Edge was too small for some, and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and its 5.7-inch screen was too big. This year we have one, the Galaxy S7 Edge, as a perfect middle ground suited for any and all users.

It's a smart move that many will love, but this could mean we won't get a Galaxy S7 Edge Plus later this year along with the Note 6. Or we could, and it will be 6-inches. We'll have to wait and see.

All you need to know is the Galaxy S7 Edge is slightly bigger this year, being 5.5-inches. It also has extra features. The "Edge Apps" and features that appear when users slide a finger on the Edge of the screen now comes out twice as far. Taking up nearly half the screen, instead of a fourth. There are nine panels to swipe through, shortcuts, tools like a compass or measuring tape, and much more. Samsung made the Edge bigger, easier to access, and have tons more functionality. We'll have to wait for review units to fully try it, but this year it should be far more useful, rather than just a gimmick and nice looking phone.

    “Samsung Expects Galaxy S7 to Sell Much Better than Galaxy S6” Keep dreaming. I bet most will come from those people who have an GS4 or GS5. We know Samsung can mass produce phone when it wants, but has it shown the public that it can keep up with the OS (and it’s own bloatware) running them?
