Samsung has a pretty solid family of phones right now. The Galaxy Note 4 is still one of our favorite Android handsets on the market, and now it’s joined by the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. We decided to put the Galaxy S6 and the Note 4 together in a video, just to show you some of the design differences.
Samsung’s move to an aluminum frame on the Galaxy S6 is a nice bump, even though we still dig the metal edges on the Galaxy Note 4, too. You’ll find Quad HD displays on both, though a smaller 5.1-inch display on the Galaxy S6, which also lacks some of the other Note 4 features like an S Pen. The camera module should be pretty similar, but Samsung said it boosted the performance of the camera on the Galaxy S6, so it sounds like it might take better pictures. The Note 4 also has a swipe-based fingerprint reader, while the Galaxy S6 now only requires you to tap and hold your finger to register a scan.
There are many other differences, several of which we cover in the video above.
