Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge Cases – Differences Explained

There are a wide range of official Samsung cases available for the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge.

The standard S6 has more case options than the S6 Edge, but what are the differences between them all?  In this post I hope to explain.

So first, lets start with a list of what cases are available for each device.  These are the official Samsung cases only.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

You will be able to see that the S6 Edge does not have the offer of an S-View cover, which is interesting given the popularity of this case on other Samsung Galaxy devices. However this is likely due to the notifications that are visible on the edge display, almost making the S-View element redundant.

The differences between the cases for the S6 and S6 Edge are that the edge cases do have a slight curvature to the face of the case to accommodate the edge display.  There are also slight tweaks in those cases that do not have front cover, such as the Protective Cover as the contours to the device are slightly different.

What this means is that you can not use an S6 case with an S6 Edge or vise versa.

Now to the differences between each case.

To make this as clear as possible I have put a bullet point list for what each case offers along with images of each case.
