How Samsung's new Galaxy S 6 phones compare against their biggest rivals

Samsung just announced its newest smartphones: the Galaxy S 6 and Galaxy S 6 edge. They’re both very different from the phones Samsung has released in the past — the company gave each device a completely new design and improved on a few key features rather than adding a bunch of new capabilities.

Here’s exactly how the Galaxy S 6 and S 6 edge stand up to their biggest competitors in terms of hardware and features. We’ll have more precise comparisons after our full review.

(Note: At the time of writing, final images of the Galaxy S 6 and HTC One M9 were unavailable. We’ll update this post with the correct photos as soon as we can.)
