    The S6 Edge has a special "People " panel to assign your favourite contacts. You can also assign a specific color to a contact. When that contact calls you, the phone will emit light of that particular color.

    Finger print scanner

    The Fi get print scanner has a changed configuration. You now hold your finger on the button unlike swiping it in S5.

    Both devices support wireless charging and fast charging technology. Samsung says the device can be charge to 50% in 30 minutes. Any commercially available charging pad is compatible.
