Samsung is continuing its promotional campaign for the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ with two new infographics. The smartphone giant is known for taking its advertising seriously, and its efforts usually pays off. You’re sure to hear more of the newest Samsung devices than HTC’s or Sony’s. Since Samsung’s next flagship refresh won’t be until next year, they seem to be focusing on promoting their current devices. The Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ are certainly impressive devices, and Samsung is addressing each of their strengths in a series of well-made illustrations.
In Samsung’s series of infographics, the company focuses on the individual differences between the two devices. For the Galaxy S6 Edge+, this distinction is the screen and the added functionality it provides. Samsung emphasizes the benefits of its QHD Super AMOLED display that curves down each side, saying it allows for a level of immersion not found in rival smartphones. The edges also provide app shortcuts and quick access to contacts. OnCircle is another feature that lets Edge users send out emoji’s or pokes to their friends. On the other hand, the Galaxy S5 lacks a curved display, but it does come with the improved S Pen. Samsung is sure to make note of the pen’s updated pressure sensitivity and ability to write down quick memos.
Although the two handsets are packed with contrasting feature sets, both devices do share many of the same basic qualities. The cameras found in each model are of the same high quality, with the 16 MP rear shooter being a contender for the current generation’s best smartphone camera. The front facing sensor fits any crowd with what the company calls a wide-angle selfie. Samsung also points out the addition of Live Broadcast, a unique feature that enables Samsung users to directly stream live video to friends and family. Of course, both models have the ability to make use of Samsung Pay, the tech company’s payments platform. Samsung Pay appears to have the largest number of compatible storefronts, an important statistic this early in the adoption of mobile payments.
