Samsung Galaxy S6 have similar specifications. In fact the only real difference between the two phones is the battery capacity. The Edge has a slightly larger battery, at 2600mAh, the S6 has 2550mAh. Both are down from the S5, which has a 2800mAh battery. Some of Samsung’s first words at the briefing were that it has put battery life at the top of the list of priorities.
The big question though is how will Samsung’s Exynos processor compare, both in performance terms and battery consumption, to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810. Only time will tell, but Samsung is using an octa-core processor which runs four cores at 2.1GHz and four at 1.5GHz. When the firm first announced this new generation of processors, it said that battery savings of 35 per cent were possible. If that’s true, then the slightly downsized battery shouldn’t make a huge difference.
