A month later the Huawei Mate 7 was released and they seem to be within the same price range with some remarkable superb specifications that are quite similar. However, there are differences which need to be pointed and rated to help us know which of them might be better for you. We thought it would be a great idea to compare these gadgets from two separate phone manufacturing giants.

Comparison Review

Their Battery:   Looking at the specifications, it is vivid that the Huawei Ascend Mate 7's battery out-performs the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, and Huawei having a 6 inched display possess bigger body than S6 edge, this should be really good for those that enjoy using phablets.

Their Design:   Apart from the software and internal hardware features the Galaxy S6 edge has, it also has smooth curved edges and an outstanding back design which marks it a premium. Huawei still maintains a very unique front design that is bold and appealing to its users anytime.

Their Memory:   Due to a better memory of 3GB RAM along with powerful processors, the Galaxy S6 edge device might be pretty faster than Huawei Ascend Mate7 (by mili-seconds or so) at multitasking and performing many other operations with installed Apps.

Camera-wise, the Galaxy S6 edge sports a much more powerful 16MP with high end-pixels than Huawei that came with 13MP, this mean the Huawei device isn't going to produce quality videos and pictures, it only means the Galaxy S6 edge will somehow produce a preferred result in that aspect.

Side Attractions and Security   NFC and finger scanner (recently integrated for payment option on Android devices) is used for payment with globally recognized methods, even if Samsung had to come up their Samsung Pay, this may not serve as an edge over other devices, since NFC already covers that purpose on Huawei Ascend Mate 7.

Final Verdict on Both Phones

If you would love to go totally premium on all aspects of hardware design, and coolest picture and video qualities of the smartphone you want to use, we think Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is the best you can choose. However, if you fancy powerful smartphones with more reliable battery and other incredible functionalities, the Huawei Ascend Mate7 should be your choice.
