The Best Galaxies Ever

Both the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus were born from the same design elements found on the S6 and S6 Edge. As a result, these new flagships are just as beautiful. Everything about it is premium, from design up to the materials used to build it.

The Note 5 is definitely an upgrade from the Note 4 (which is great on its own). The plastic leather looking back plate is gone, replaced by Gorilla Glass. The flash and the fingerprint sensor moved to the side of the camera. The speaker moved to the bottom (along with a new speaker grill).  And the metal frame and squarish shape is now replaced with subtle curves and a smoother feel. The only thing missing compared to its predecessor are SD card slot and removable battery.

The S6 Edge Plus on the other hand, follows on the success and sexiness of the S6 Edge. This is the phablet to get if you really want a bigger screen. The smartphone itself is slightly taller than the Note 5, but the curved screen makes it easy to hold.
