Specs comparison: Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ vs Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+
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+.
