Here are some key reasons why Galaxy S6 Edge+ is better than S6 Edge :
Looks of S6 Edge+ and S6 Edge are almost same. If you see both the Mobiles separately, you can not find the difference. Some times pictures peak better than words. Check the pictures below and judge yourself.
S6 Edge weighs only 131 g as compared to 153 g of S6 Edge+.
This is where you will find the major difference in size. Galaxy S6 Edge+ is 5.7 ” as compared to 5.1″ of Galaxy S6 Edge. Though there is not much of the resolution difference and with naked eyes its not possible to differentiate the quality. Both have Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

Processor / RAM
Both the devices have same processor Exynos 7420 Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2.1 GHz Cortex-A57, except the difference that S6 Edge got 3 GB LP DDR3 and S6 Edge+ 4GB LPDDR4.
S6 Edge comes in three variants 32/54/128 GB and no card Slot vs S6 Edge+ 32/64 GB and no card slot.
Both devices have same camera Rear 16 MP and selfie 5 MP with f/1.9 .
The main difference is in the Video recording wherein S6 Edge+ camera is equipped with VDIS ( Video Digital Imaging Stabilization ) + OIS for steady video recording and Live Broadcast and recording upto UHD 4K (3840 x 2160).
Both the Devices run on Android Lollipop. The key difference is S6 Edge is on 5.0.2 and S6 Edge+ on 5.1.1. S6 Edge+ is also equipped with the latest version of Touchviz UI.
One of the good feature in S6 Edge+ is added function on Home button like single / double / triple tab. Another good functionality is added to the People Edge like user defined applications.
S6 Edge comes with a Non-removable Li-Ion 2600 mAh battery and S6 Edge+ 3000 mAh Non-removable battery. But do not judge by Battery capacity as S6 Edge+ got 5.7″ screen which tends to consume more battery.
Both the phones have fast and wireless charging. S6 Edge+ battrey is claimed to be charged with 90 minutes from Flat to full.
It’s very early to say anything as both the Devices are new, but for me if I like small size , I will opt for S6 Edge and for bigger screens S6 Edge+. Honestly speaking, for me both the devices are same except screen size.
