Comparisson review

The Galaxy S6 Edge has a global score of 9.12, which is better than Sony Xperia Z1's 8.15 overall score. The Galaxy S6 Edge design is newer, noticeably lighter and thinner than Sony Xperia Z1. Both phones in this comparisson work with Android OS (operating system), but Galaxy S6 Edge has the newer 5.0 version and Sony Xperia Z1 has Android 4.4.2.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has a greater performance than Xperia Z1, because it has a greater amount of RAM memory, a 64 bits processor, a much better 650 MHz graphics processor and more CPU cores (although slower). The Galaxy S6 Edge features a bit better looking display than Sony Xperia Z1, because it has a higher resolution of 2560 x 1440px, a greater display pixel density and a bit larger display.

Sony Xperia Z1's camera is just as good as the camera in Galaxy S6 Edge, because although the Sony Xperia Z1 has a smaller aperture which is not nice for low light photography, and they both have the same 1920x1080 (Full HD) video quality and the same video frame rates, it also counts with a much more megapixels back-facing camera and a bigger back camera sensor capturing higher quality pictures.

The Xperia Z1 has a little bit more memory for applications, games, photos and videos than Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, because although it has just 16 GB internal storage, it also counts with a slot for SD memory cards that allows up to 64 GB. The Sony Xperia Z1 features a way better battery duration than Galaxy S6 Edge, because it has a 15% more battery size.

The Galaxy S6 Edge costs a bit more than Xperia Z1, but it's still a good choice, as you can get a lot more for that extra money.
