Apple's supersized iPhone, the iPhone 6 Plus, has continued to dominate the market since it was released last year. The handset's big screen has caused fans to do away with their tablets, and the phone's great battery life is an added advantage.
However, Samsung's latest release, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, is out to challenge Apple's best seller with its ingenious design and clear and bright screen, which, though not as large as the iPhone 6 Plus, is still pretty impressive due to its high resolution.

HTC and Samsung took the Mobile World Congress 2015 by storm when they announced their new flagship phones for the year. HTC released its One M9, while Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge on March 1 at the Barcelona event. Both devices were the subject of much speculation and rumors prior to their launch, as their predecessors—the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5—have impressed tech fans worldwide. So naturally, both tech manufacturers have taken a lot of care to do even better with the new handsets.
Here, we compare the two devices.
Design: The HTC One M9 has a metal body just like its predecessor, but the difference is the phone now has defined edges and flattened sides. The phone measures 5.69 x 2.74 x 0.37 inches and weighs 5.5 ounces. The edge of the phone has a slightly different color than the back panel, which gives a dual tone effect. The color variations include a gold edge around a silver body, a silver edge around a dark grey body, and a gold body with a black edge. more >>
