Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ (CDMA)
That moment when...
Also, the curved display costs more to make, and that cost is reflected in the retail price. Some people might prefer the Note5 for the lower price.
The flat display of the Note5 also has less glare and is probably more durable, since a case can't really protect those curved glass sides without covering the display.
The S6 edge-plus doesn't replace the S6 edge. It's a larger alternative. It would be more fair to say the S6 edge-plus replaces the Note Edge, although with the lack of stylus, that's not entirely accurate, either. The edge-plus is a new device that sits alongside both the standard S6 edge and the Note5 in Samsung's new lineup, offering a blend of those two phones.
I'll admit I just kind of assumed the edge was just the next S series device. I haven't been keeping up too much on Samsung I guess because I'm sort of "over" the Samsung craze. That's good to know, though.
