Samsung is creating waves around the globe with its latest flagship model – the Samsung Galaxy S6, and with this release, the company seems to end all the criticism it has been receiving over the years for the mediocre appearance of their Smartphone. After failing to impress tech lovers last year with its S5 model, it seems that Samsung pulled up its socks and has worked hard to put its best foot forward in the form of its latest high-end Smartphone – The Galaxy S6.
With power packed performance features loaded in a sturdy and stylish unit, the Galaxy S6 is receiving accolades not only from tech lovers but from other critics as well. In terms of its features, the Galaxy S6 sports an impressive 5.1 inch super AMOLED capacitive display with a TouchWIZ UI and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The phone runs the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop operating system and is powered by a 1.5 GHz Quad Core processor. Other features in the list include a 16 Mega pixel rear camera with HD video recording, a 5 Megapixel front facing camera, multiple connectivity options, wireless charging, a fingerprint sensor, a Samsung Pay feature, 3GB RAM, and memory options of 32/64 or128 GB.
Packed with features, the Galaxy S6 is one of the most advanced handsets to date and to support our claim of smartphone superiority; we have picked out a few features that definitely prove that the S6 is better than its little brother, the GalaxyS5.
Looks and Design:
Breaking from its traditional looks, Samsung has finally launched a good looking, sturdy, and impressive handset. In terms of looks and design, the Galaxy S6 definitely scores better compared to the Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S6 has a premium looking design with a metal chassis and mirror finish. The protection of the Gorilla Glass 4 on the front as well as on the back further enhances the handset’s sturdiness and strength.
One of the prominent features that may make you want you to trade in your Galaxy S5 for an S6 is the amazing display. We can’t deny the fact that the display of Samsung handsets are superior to all other device displays present on the market, but when it comes to the Galaxy S6 model, it can be stated that it is the best of all. The latest smartphone sports an impressive 5.1 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display which supports 1440 X 2560 pixel resolutions along with a whopping 577 pixels per inch. The color accuracy of the handset is remarkable and the device also has a feature that enables you to manipulate the screen’s brightness and color so that the display of the phone in outdoor lighting is clear.
As far as storage is concerned, if you own the Galaxy S6, you will not have to bother worrying about space for storing your important data and files. The handset is made available in multiple storage versions including 32GB, 64 GB and 128 GB. Because the Galaxy S6 is sold with multiple memory options, Samsung has removed the option of an SD card slot and so external storage expansion is not possible in the latest model. This may be a matter of concern for few users.
Another impressive feature of the Galaxy S6 is its fingerprint scanner. This feature is improved upon from the Galaxy S5 fingerprint scanning feature and now you simply have to rest your finger on the scanner rather than swiping on the scanning plate. The feature works smoothly and effectively.
Memory and processor:
Memory and processor are definitely the main specifications of any handset that plays a major role in influencing the decisions of the buyer and when it comes to Galaxy S6 it scores quite well on these fronts. Fuelled by a quad core 1.5GHz, a 2.1 GHz processor with Exynos 7420 chipset, and a Mali-T 760 the handset comes loaded with 3GB RAM which offers impressive performance speed. Whether you are downloading files or playing games, all your tasks will be super quick with the S6.
For all you photography enthusiasts, the Galaxy S6 is definitely a worthwhile purchase because it is capable of capturing inspiring images with its 16MP rear end camera. The f/1.9 lens of the camera is fast which along with the optical image stabilization feature, allows you to take decent quality pictures not only during daylight but also at night. The handset also comes with an impressive 5 MP front facing camera that allows you to take some of your best selfies.
As it is often said that all good things comes at a price, the same holds true for the Galaxy S6 because this latest flagship model by Samsung will weigh heavily on your pocket. The base 32GB model of the S6 starts somewhere around $680. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is one of the most expensive handset launched by the company and if you are ready to spend the big bucks on this beauty then be rest assured that it’s a good value because you are paying for the top of the line features and performance in any smartphone to date.
