Well, it is a tricky question indeed. A brief comparison between the Samsung Galaxy S6 and One Plus Two yields the following inferences-
Design and Build
In terms of build, both the devices tend to look premium. One Plus Two has a metal frame and steel accents. The rear cover is made of "real Wood". The finger print scanner included in the Home button has a touch type implementation. Then there is an Alert Slider which lets you set notification preferences without the need to wake up the phone. This is the first time introduction on an Android device. The Galaxy S6 features a metal and glass unibody design. It has the standard Samsung look and feel.
One Plus Two is bigger than Galaxy S6. So, as such, the S6 will offer more handling comfort than its competitor.
One Plus One comes with a 5.5 inch full HD display with an impressive pixel density of 401 ppi. The in-cell IPS display ensures better viewing angles. It does have a good outdoor visibility. Galaxy S6 has a smaller 5.1 inch screen, but has a better display by having a quad HD resolution. It offers a massive 577 ppi pixel density. The AMOLED screen provides amazing colors.

One Plus Two is powered by , Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Octacore processor v2.1, with a clock speed of 1.8 GHz. It comes with 3 or 4 GB of RAM depending on the internal storage variant. The Snapdragon processor has some overheating issues reported, but One Plus claims that it has been working closely with the Qualcomm engineers to make the phone " cooler than ever".
Galaxy S6 skipped the Snapdragon processor and has employed the in house Octacore Exynos processor which appears to be good move. It offers an onboard RAM of 3 GB. The processor has been better optimized to offer lag free operation.
One Plus has two memory variants in 16 and 64 GB, while Galaxy S6 comes in an additional variant of 128 GB. Both of them lack expandable memory though.
The Galaxy S6 has a 16 MP rear camera with improved Optical Image Stabilisation. The HDR feature has received a facelift. It boasts of a Tracking Focus feature which tracks moving objects while shooting.
The One Plus Two comes with a 13 MP camera with f/2.0 aperture. It has a Laser Auto Focus system which can focus in just 0.3 seconds. It supports 4K video recording.
One Plus Two runs on Oxygen OS which is developed by One Plus. The software is based on Android Lollipop 5.0. It has a near stock android experience which is refreshing. It does not come with any fancy feature apart from a few gesture controls.
Galaxy S6 runs on the same Android Lollipop 5.0 with customization from TouchWiz. The TouchWiz skin has been optimized for faster performance than that used to be earlier. It is much leaner now with less bloatware.
What I would think
I do not think either of them play any one upmanship. They appear almost similar in terms of features and spec sheet. Only plus point for One Plus Two is its price. The device is available at half the price of a Galaxy S6. Other than that, I do not think either of them overtake each other.
