Samsung Galaxy S6 -The co-beast of the year dished out by Samsung, Samsung galaxy s6 was a rebrand to the way we use android phone, Samsung galaxy s6 came with a metal and glass body which was a big step forward not forgetting the fast processor that came with the mobile device. Best to say, it’s more than a device.
The design of Samsung galaxy s6 was too good that Samsung could not incorporate a lot into their galaxy s7. The body design was made from metal and high quality metal case which is a rear design if I must say.
Samsung galaxy s6 might not be spanking on the eyes of many as Samsung have released other phones after its release. But for the fact that the price has drop has actually made it a phone to really consider because of the features it has compared to the mid-range mobile devices and not to forget that it is also cheaper than the galaxy s7.
So we will be making an extensive review of Samsung galaxy s6 showing you the pros and cons.
That reminds me not to forget the Samsung galaxy s6 Edge which has a very attractive display. Both phones are worth their uniqueness in their own right, for me the major difference between the two phone is just the expensive, more attractive, curved display if not, the two device has the same hardware configuration.

DETAILED SAMSUNG GALAXY S6 REVIEW
Samsung completely took the whole world by storm with the release and incorporation of their processor into their latest mobile device which is way better than LG G4 and HTC One M9 when it comes to raw application speed, not to talk of the body finish which for me is the best of the year, with the metal and high glass quality finishing. Not forgetting the camera and the good Amoled screen the device was designed with. For me this phone is supposed to be among the best phone of the year and it gives iphone users something to think about on their iPhone 6.
A brief pros and cons of Samsung galaxy s6
As good as a device is, we will never have a perfect device in life.
|EXCELLENT BUILD QUALITY||BATTERY IS NOT REPLACEABLE|
|HIGH QUALITY SCREEN||NO MEMORY CARD SLOT|
|VERY FAST PROCESSOR|
Compared to the body design previously designed by Samsung this one is very entailing but with a high quality glass and a metal finishing it really looks beautiful but it’s really slippery as well really do miss Samsung’s faux-leather back panels which is ridged to hold.
Samsung galaxy s6 is designed with a wow 5.1 inch super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560×1440 making it the phone with the best and highest pixel density of 577ppi, beating LG G3, which has the same resolution and a larger 5.5inch screen display.
The screen technology that is used has a perfect colour accuracy and contrast, a good colour calibrator which is returned as an sRGB colour gamut score of 100 percent. The sweet thing about the phone is that it AMOLED screen is on like any AMOLED screen as it has an Auto adjust screen power depending on the environment.
The phone comes with android 5.0 which is upgradable to 6.0. not to mention the TouchWiz interface which Samsung actually worked on as this particular TouchWiz does not come with a lot of application pre-installed which end up clustering the phone.
It comes with latest application and features such as the Google’s clever now on tap that can serve as your assistant when u want to look for an area to see latest movies. And also comes with some permission control for a particular individual.
A lot of other application such as the S Health, S planner, S voice and Samsung smart manager application preinstalled in Samsung galaxy s6. It also comes with Samsung galaxy app store and Microsoft OneDrive application to mention but a few.
The camera used in Samsung galaxy s6 is the same as the one used in S5 but they improved on the accuracy and brighter nature removing the blur and adding optical image stabilization. The HDR mode is not bad at all as when images where taken its color did not seem unnatural and artificial.
Also there is a new mode that allow you take 3D image of object.
Samsung galaxy s6 those not come with a memory card slot but it has different variant of storage you could actually select from. It includes the 32GB,64GB and 128GB.
Samsung galaxy s6 has a 2550mAh power rating which can last up to 13 hours and 37 minutes on normal use without running much heavy and demanding applications.
Of course a lot of users will be disappointed that the device could have come with a removable battery but Samsung actually put their disappointment to rest with the incorporation of wireless charging that supports standard WPC.1.1 and PMA1.0. It also has fast charging mode.
At the performance OMG spoiler alert to many phone brand as Samsung latest 64-bit Exynos 7420 CPU is as fast and swift as anything thing you can think of. Here HTC One M9 and LG G4 has no say. Applications on the phone loads within a blink of an eye.
The processor uses an ARM’s technology which has a four core that is running a 2.1GHz which is put on only when high intensity application is in play and another 1.5GHz for taking care of low scale job without hassle.
All this incorporated with the android 5.0 OS and a 3G RAM my dear I think you have all you need to be with. Don’t blame the adage that a day would come when we would have generation of idiot. Right now am so attached to this Samsung phone that I forget that am with my friends.
Video on Samsung galaxy s6 review
Single core: 1427
Multi core: 4501
This score compared to what I have on HTC One M9 and LG G4 my dear forget this is far more impressive than any of this device.
NOTE: Samsung galaxy s6 comes with IR emitter which helps you control electronic appliance that works with remote control. Are you not trilled.
My verdict on Samsung Galaxy S6
Would I recommend this phone for anyone? wait a minute is that a question, yes of course I would.
But if you have extra money to add for fancy screen you could go for the Samsung galaxy s6 Edge.
