I've got a Galaxy S6 Edge and an iPhone 6 (work). I prefer the S6 myself. I've owned the Galaxy Slide, SII, S3 and S5 in the past and I will say I
hated the Galaxy Slide so much I almost didn't go with another Galaxy model. Ended up liking the next two, skipped 4 and then my S5 was meh and the
microphone kept cutting out.
The S6 has been by far the best. Screen is beautiful and tough. I don't use a case for it and I usually carry that phone in a front pocket and not a
scratch. I actually dropped it coming down the steps to leave for the airport about a month ago and it fell maybe 7 feet or so and bounced off the
pavers. The glass on the BACK cracked a little (it hit top corner) but the chassis was perfectly fine and the phone was otherwise unscathed.
This was the first Galaxy that had the heft and feel that makes the iPhone seem well built. The rapid charge is quick. Pictures are great. Video is
great even in low light and the image stablization works like a champ. Overall, it's the best phone I've owned even if the whole "edge" thing is a
The iPhone on the other hand is... an iPhone. My wife has had iPhones all along and to me, my iPhone 6 doesn't seem drastically different from the 5,
4S, etc she's owned in the past. Though, I've got something of anti-Apple bias so maybe I'm not the best to judge. I will say that the battery life is
impressive even compared to the S6 which was great new and remains solid even after all these charge/discharge cycles.
I haven't owned an S7 but I've had a little hands on with an S7 Edge and it was extremely similar to the S6 Edge. It's also of course water resistant
(and champagne resistant judging by the Lil Wayne commercials). I don't think you could go "wrong" with either of the two — there's a reason why
they are the most popular brands/models.
