Samsung has released the Galaxy S7 Edge in the market already, but users are wondering whether or not it is worth buying over the Galaxy S6 Edge+. Both the devices are not too far away from each other in many aspects, and the S6 Edge+ clearly pulls ahead of the S7 Edge is some areas. If you are on Galaxy S6 Edge+ and are considering to upgrade to the Galaxy S7 Edge, we have some reasons why you shouldn’t.
Galaxy S7 Edge gets a 5.5-inch screen, but the S6 Edge+ features a bit larger 5.7-inch display. This small difference can be important for those who prefer larger devices. From watching movies to playing your favourite games, the S6 Edge+ is better.
Battery Life is Almost the Same
Now some people would argue that the 3,000mAh battery on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ does not stand a chance against the 3,600 mAh battery of the Galaxy S7 Edge. But in real-life usage, both the batteries last almost the same. Samsung has optimized the Galaxy S6 Edge+ to last longer, and the device charges faster than the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Galaxy S6 Edge+ is Still Powerful Enough
It’s true that the Galaxy S7 Edge packs the latest mobile chipset, but the S6 Edge+ does not lag far behind. It carries the great Exynos 7420 which gives the same performance as the Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 in regular usage. The performance is similar especially on Marshmallow, and the S6 Edge+ is as capable in multitasking as the S7 Edge.
All the Edge Screen Features are Already There
If you are drooling over the new Edge screen functions that the Galaxy S7 Edge comes with, don’t worry. You can get the same options and functions by downloading the latest Marshmallow update.
The Galaxy S7 Edge gets an excellent low-light camera, but in normal light, the S6 Edge+ is as good as the S7 Edge. The phone can take amazing shots when the lighting conditions are good, and the 16MP sensor provides more detail than the 12MP sensor in the S7 Edge.
All these things that we said about the Galaxy S7 Edge are true. It’s a great phone in itself. But if you are using a Galaxy S6 Edge+, then you’ve already got a great phone in your hands and do not need to get the S7 Edge as it’s not worth much.
