Interestingly, it looks like the major specs for the Note 5 and the S6 edge+ are basically the same. The major difference is just that the Note 5 has a standard flat display while the S6 edge+ has a display with curved edges that Samsung first debuted with the Galaxy S6 edge earlier this year.

At any rate, here are the specs shared by both devices:

  • 5.7-inch quad HD super AMOLED display at 518 pixels per inch
  • Exnyos 7420 processor, a 64-bit octa-core chipset
  • 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 3,000mAh battery
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. Bluetooth v4.2m NFC and USB 2.0

Other than the differences in the devices’ display shapes, you should also note that the Note 5 is slightly thicker and heavier than the S6 edge+. In total, the Note 5 is 7.6 millimeters thick and weighs 171 grams, while the S6 edge+ is 6.9 millimeters thick and weighs 153 grams.
