Why it's a must-have: Samsung's Note line has been pretty consistent in coming up with solid products, and the Galaxy Note 5 should be part of the tradition.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is the Note 5's literally curvier sibling. The follow-up to the Galaxy S6 Edge, it comes with a curved display that shows visuals even on the sides, offering added ways on how to use the device (e.g. displaying notifications on the sides for easier viewing at an angle).

Compared to its predecessor (which is already a souped-up device in its own right), the Galaxy S6 Edge+ packs a larger frame and a bit more power. Like the Galaxy Note 5, it now has a 5.7-inch display (compared to the Galaxy S6 Edge's 5.1 inches) and 4GB of RAM (compared to the first-gen's 3GB).

Hardware highlights: 5.7-inch QHD display (2560 x 1440 resolution), Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, up to 64GB capacity, 16-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel secondary, 3,000mAh battery, Wi-Fi, 3G, LTE, Android Lollipop
