Last updated: March 29th, 2017 at 17:19 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy S6 edge+ was probably the curved Galaxy S flagship that received the least attention, given it came in between when the Galaxy S6 edge took everyone’s breath away and when the Galaxy S7 edge came out as one of the most perfect Samsung flagships we had ever seen. But the Galaxy S6 edge+ wasn’t far from perfection, either, and many owners of the device are likely thinking of upgrading to the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8+.

Our full review of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will arrive in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, if you are wondering how the S6 edge+ compares to Samsung’s new flagships on paper, check out the comparison table below.
