Almost everything crammed into the Galaxy S6 and its slanted brother is new smartphone technology never used before.
Each phone arrives within the next two months, but if you had to pick today, which one are you going with?

But with those, we started seeing carriers adopt a single model, bringing consistency and a brand explosion to the Galaxy line. As you probably guessed, we went ahead and added the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge to the list to show how far Samsung has come over the years. (more…)
