Samsung is a company that almost everyone have heard about regardless of where you’re from.Samsung has just recently released the Samsung Galaxy S6.But the Samsung Galaxy S6 is very different from the rest of the smartphones from the Samsung Galaxy S Series.
Samsung has decided to leave much of the Galaxy S5 traits behind and make a more different smartphone.And boom that’s how they made the Galaxy S6.A few difference that the Galaxy S6 has when compared to the Galaxy S5,is that the Galaxy S6 has a unremoveable battery and does not have a microSD card slot resulting in the Galaxy S6 being slimmer.
The dimension of the Galaxy S6 is 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8mm and it weighs 138g.I think that it is good that Samsung kept the S6’s size at check as you don’t really want to have a phone that is too big or too small.Even though the Galaxy S6 is 0.1mm thinner than the Iphone 6,I does not bend like the Iphone 6 which is great as you don’t one to worry about whether your phone which you pay S$998 for will bend or not.
Samsung also improved it’s fingerprint reader,and it’s not only for unlocking your home screen, it now allows you to make mobile payment using Samsung Pay.Which in my opinion might change how business will work in the future, maybe 10 to 20 years later people will no longer bring their wallets and they’ll use their smartphone choose the credit card of their choice and pay.
The Galaxy S6 uses a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen,16M colours.The size of the screen is 5.1 inches.It has a screen resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (577 pixel density) It also has Multitouch which is something you should expect from the S6.In my opinion I think that the screen resolution is wonderful.When you compare the Galaxy S6 screen resolution to the Iphone 6, the Galaxy S6 is clearly the winner as the Iphone 6 has a screen resolution of 1334 x 750 (326 pixel density)
The Galaxy S6 runs on Android OS, v5.0.2 (Lollipop) it’s CPU is a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2.1 GHz Cortex-A57.Since it has a Quad-core, it is able to run smoothly and process things very quickly.For the GPU it uses a Mali-T760MP8 which is a energy efficient GPU but still produces best quality graphics.And with such good performance, it makes the Galaxy S6 even more worth it.
One of the biggest diffrence from the Galaxy S6 has when compared to the Galaxy S5 is that it does not have a microSD card slot which I mentioned just now already.Well, in my opinion I even though the Galaxy S6 does not have a microSD card slot I think it just gives user slight inconvenience.The Galaxy S6 internal memory is enough for me so I think it would not be much of a problem.The Galaxy S6 comes with internal of 32/64/128 GB and has a 3GB RAM
The Galaxy S6 front camera has 16 MP, 2988 x 5312 pixels, optical image stabilization, autofocus,and LED flash.The front camera has video quality of 2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps, 720p@120fps.It’s rear camera has 5 MP.The rear camera has video quality of 1440p@30fps
Another one of the Galaxy S6’s feature is that it now can be charged without wires using inductive charging which uses a electromagnetic field to transfer energy from the charger to the Galaxy S6.Well with this method perhaps when wireless charging will become the way people charges things in the future and in a family that uses smartphone of different brand no longer need to worry about a clump of different charging cable everywhere.
The Galaxy S6 has a 2,550 mAh battery and in a standard video loop test it took 12.4 hours to run down.The battery last nearly a day when I use it like how I would normally use a smartphone daily.I surfed the net,played Clash of Clans occasionally and listened to music and the battery lasted for almost a day.So I think the battery life is good but it’s not like crazy long like some smartphone which has 3 day battery life.And with ultra power saving mode on you can charge your Galaxy S6 battery to a 100% very quickly.
The Galaxy S6 is also not waterproof but I don’t really think it will be a huge problem.
So overall in my opinion, the Galaxy S6 is the best android phone out on the market right now.So far the only android smartphone which might be better is the S6 Edge which has not been out yet.Based on it’s performance I think this smartphone is worth it.It cost S$998 and I think I would not mind paying even more for a phone which is this good.And I think that this is a warning to other companies like Apple,HTC and many more as this shows how capable Samsung is at when it comes to producing smartphones of top-notch quality.
