    So I'm looking for a new phone. I can't decide on the Nexus 6P or the Galaxy S6 edge. Please give me your guys opinions! Here are some of the reasons I want both:

    Nexus Pros: Stock android, 5.7 inch Quad HD AMOLED screen (for movies), quick updates, great speakers, great camera

    Nexus Cons: 5.7 screen (too big for me, but I hope I'll get used to it), no OIS, more expensive

    GS6 edge Pros: 5.1 inch screen is more manageable, Quad HD Super AMOLED screen, Gorgeous edge (big deal for me), wide angle front camera, better camera with OIS, cheaper

    GS6 edge Cons: Worse speaker, Touchwiz, May stop updating soon, Older than 6P and the S7 is already out

    If you guys have anymore pros or cons, please let me know!!

    The S6 is good for at least 1 more major update. Typically Samsung updates the flagships for 2 years. Personally I don't mind the updates.

    TouchWiz ain't so bad in my opinion.

    Honestly yoy can't go wrong with either phone. You should just pick the cheaper one and roll with it.

    Since you don't like the big screen size of the Nexus 6p, maybe Nexus 5x is one you want to look at?

    I agree with above, there are a lot of good options to choose at reasonable prices.

    Well since I'm planning on getting the S6 edge, it's pretty close to being the same price. The edge is probably about $50 cheaper, which gives it a point.

    I would get the 5X, but I'm really looking for that Quad HD AMOLED screen... I wish Google would've put one in the 5x, then that would be my dream phone pretty much. What do you guys think about the Nexus 6P not being as popular? I know it sounds kinda weird, but since I haven't seen anybody with a 6P in public, and that kinda lowers the 6P for me... I just feel like there's a bigger community for Samsung phones, even if the S6 is a year old.

    Are you sure? AFAIK the S6 is more expensive than the Nexus, and the Edge is more expensive than regular S6
