With the announcement of the Galaxy S6 during Mobile World Congress 2015, one can admit that it’s sporting an edgier look than ever before. Quite literally, though, that’s exactly what its variant in the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is donning – where it flaunts curved edges on both sides of its display, to give it one unique look. Of course, the Nokia Lumia 930 has long established its reputation in the smartphone space for quite some time. Not only is it a great Windows Phone, but it’s an amazingly good smartphone in general. And hey, it helps that it caters to the needs of hardcore shutterbugs too!
It’s really tough saying which of these two smartphones offer the superior design, since each are distinct and offer their own specific qualities. For the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, folks might be drawn to its drastically updated design – one that’s a stark departure from what we’ve seen previously. From its change in materials, like its metal trim border and glass covers, to the reflective qualities of its casing, the Galaxy S6 edge shines brilliantly and evokes a design that’s undeniably premium. Oh yeah, we can’t neglect to talk about its dual curved display, especially when it adds a neat and cool look to the phone. Honestly, it’s meant to be more of an aesthetic thing, as opposed to being more functional.
Conversely, rather than exhibiting a premium look and feel, the Nokia Lumia 930 has a stylish edge thanks to its distinctively Lumia design language. Better yet, its availability in bright and fun colors has enough appeal, as well as that standout factor, to catch the eyes of bystanders. However, when it comes to the in-the-hand feel, we find the Galaxy S6 to be more comfortable because it’s thinner, lighter, and rounded on its sides to better ergonomically fit our hand.
