    Depends. Edge will give you light up notifications for calls when face down, quick access to your top 5 contacts, night clock, and the ability to scroll through some notifications and such. The case and accessories selection will not be as good as the regular S6. And I hear the equivalent Edge vs S6 will be $100 more.

    I don't think either is better than the other.

    Also, Blue Topaz is only the S6. Green Emerald is only on the Edge.... subject to carrier avalibility of course.

    Personally, I would go for the Edge just because it's different.

    I don't think either is really better, the Edge has some nice features that will come at a price. While I like the features of the Edge, I don't see myself paying the extra cash for it, but I'll decide in the store....unless the Edge really isn't coming out for another month.

    Both models come in Platinum Gold, White, and Sapphire Black. But the S6 also comes in Topaz Blue while the S6 Edge also comes in an Emerald Green. A lot of people love the Emerald Green, which forces you to go with the Edge.

    Personally, I want the Edge because it's so gorgeous to look at. I'll probably never use any of the Edge gimmicks -- I only care about the curved screen on an aesthetic level.

    Cant say which one is better but im personally going with the regular S6. I just dont see any of the Edge features justifying the extra cost. Plus like someone else said more options for cases and accessories will be available for the S6. Also the Edge seems like it would awkward to hold and use one handed due to the curved screen.

    I am almost for sure getting the Edge. The only thing stopping me from being 100% sure is how hard it will be to avoid getting scratches on the screen due to how hard making a good screen protector for it will be. That would be the only reason I go with the regular S6, the edge just looks so much nicer and even though the features aren't what sells it, they are certainly nice features to have.

    It looks hella cooler. HELLA cooler. There's no function other than looks. The stuff they've come up for it could easily be done on the regular S6 other than the strobing lights for the contacts. But who lays their phone face down?

    If the rumor is true that the Edge will be coming out a month after the regular, then I'm getting the regular. If it's within a couple weeks, I'll probably go with the Edge, but still not sure. Worried mostly about durability.

    if i do get an s6, it'll just be the plain s6. i see no real benefit to the edge at all for the added cost. i dont think it looks 'cooler' at all.

    im still waiting for the verge review to help me decide whether to jump to android with the s6 or just wait for iphone 6s.

    Thinking edge but need to hold both in person first. Edge may not be as comfortable/secure in the hand.

    Based on what I've seen i can't justify spending the extra $100 for the Edge…it looks great and if it was only $50 id be more inclined to get it instead of S6.

    Well, if you're going to make your decision between the S6 and the iPhone based on The Verge review, it's been nice knowing you.

    Ha! The Verge does tend to be very iPhone friendly

    Here's the Verge review: The Samsung S6 looks like a very nice phone, but there is no "i" in front of it, so I can't recommend it.

    I'm personally looking forward to the Anandtech review which should hopefully be out any day now.

    I'm anxious for their review too. Read their review of the M9 and I felt it was one of the more honest reviews compared to the Android sites out there, but I sort of expect that from them (just a personal preference).

    Hi guys, which one you think is better? s6 or s6 edge and why?
    I voted Edge, but I'm honestly not sure which I think is better at this point. Without having touched the S6 or S6 Edge, I'd go with the S6 based on the few YouTube videos I've seen. I don't think the Edge screen adds much, but it makes it look really different and the features it does add are kind of nifty.

    I'll play/hold an Edge before I buy though. Some people have said it's super uncomfortable and others have said it doesn't feel any different. I'm also kind of surprised at the amount of interest in the Edge by YouTubers.

    Seems to me if there is any functionality on the edges, you would constantly be hitting it by accident when just holding the phone normally. I asked that question over on XDA and somebody said the edges were deactivated for that reason, that it was only for looks but touching the edges would not do anything. I guess we will have to wait and see.

    i have no problem with theverge. just like anandtech loved the iphone 6. obviously the more 'real' reviews are out, the more i will read them. at this time i haven't really seen a well-written review on the s6 yet besides possibly the mobilesyrup one (a site i barely read compared to verge/anandtech).

    Regular S6 for me.

    While I like the look of the S6 Edge, I can't justify paying extra for it. I haven't seen a compelling enough argument to justify the edge.

    Putting the screen face down to see the colours doesn't bother me. I never put my phone face down and don't plan on doing so. Swiping from the side to pull up 5 contacts isn't interesting to me either.

    While it looks cool and is great that they can do that, I think I'll just go with the regular S6.

    I really want to buy the Edge, but I don't think that it has enough added functionality besides looks to justify the price bump. It is great looking, but few will care after a couple of months. I don't think that the $100 is enough for a couple of months of the wow factor.

    Now, I very well may change my mind if the Edge is available at the beginning of May when I plan on upgrading.
