Our weekly poll stretched for a fortnight this time, but it was only for the better. It gave you the opportunity to gain a better perspective on the Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6 edge+ and cast a more informed vote on the matter of their hotness.
Far from a raving reception the two have gotten, but the response is positive overall. The first glance at the results may evoke a bewildered look on your face – the Note5 getting more upvotes than the S6 edge+ in a mostly superficial poll, where design would seem to matter more?
That proved not to be the case and productivity won over looks, with the S Pen tipping the scales in the Note’s direction, flawed design or not. That’s not say that the Galaxy S6 edge+ doesn’t have its fans, it gets a similar 3 out of 5 positive votes.
The approval rates, however, are among the lowest of late – the Sony Xperia M5 and C5 Ultra gathered upwards of 80% two weeks ago, and so did the Moto X Style a while earlier. It’s perhaps a bit too early, though, for these numbers to be considered a cause for concern for Samsung.
