Samsung Galaxy S6 edge vs. Huawei Mate S: premium smartphones in the video comparison [IFA 2015]

A duel between China and South Korea in the offing. Because in addition to the established manufacturers stepped up especially Huawei, Samsung smartphones with good to fair prices to pressure. The most recent result of this effort is the Mate S. We have compared the quality phablet with the equally high quality Galaxy S6 edge on camera.

In fact, the direct competitor to Huawei Mate S the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is rather positive due to the screen diagonal. Since the South Korean phablet but only now comes and (4 September 2015) in the sale also costs 150 euros more, the comparison to the now similar bepreisten Galaxy S6 edge is not inappropriate. Because with fingerprint sensor AMOLED screen and elegant housing, there is a lot of overlap between the two high-end smartphones.

To the test reports: Huawei Mate S in the test and Samsung Galaxy S6 (edge) in the test.

The most significant is the difference in the display: Because in addition to the diagonal and the resolution of both displays is different. The Galaxy S6 edge builds WQHD and offers an extremely sharp image, meanwhile, the screen of Mate S dissolves only with full HD and has on top of that on the unpleasant PenTile matrix. As a result, the display on the Huawei phablet is indeed fine, but by far on a par with Samsung's flagship model. For this, the look of the S Mate a bit like the colleague Amir subjectively better than the Galaxy S6.
