Samsung no doubt has been known for making their display so clear and crisp, and the S6 is not an exception. With display pixels of up to 1440 x 2560 and 577 PPI, the device rocks a display even better than the Galaxy Note 4. You are right if you guessed a Super AMOLED 5.1” display.
I can’t stop loving this feature of the Samsung Galaxy series; they sport the best out there, at least in my opinion. This device sports a 2988 x 5312 pixels and 16MP camera sensor for the rear camera with 4K shooting. Talking about taking slow-motion videos, you can get up to 240fps with your videos in full HD.
The selfie secondary camera is rated at 8MP with videos at 30fps.
With 3GB RAM, quad 1.5GHz, and 2.1GHz cores processor each to power this device, you should expect that it is one of the most fluid and smooth running interfaces you have yet to see in the mobile market.
The device, of course, comes with the Lollipop 5.0.2 OS and also the Touchwiz UI. It has 32, 64, and 128GB variants.
Seriously, 2550mAh? That’s a retrogression. The battery this time is not as good as the Samsung Galaxy S5, and why, for Pete’s sake, should such a device be packed with this? Well, the battery on this device isn’t good enough. The HTC One M9 has got better battery life.
What Else To Consider
Unlike the predecessor, a fingerprint scanner that would rarely fail you has finally come to stay in this build. The scanner can be compared to the likes on the iPhone 6.
Wireless charging is the rave right now, and the Samsung Galaxy S6 decided not to leave out on this. This device is built into one smartphone with two competing wireless charging technologies (PMA and QI). Whatever the reason might be, it’s simply amazing, I must say.
From the price this device is placed at, it doesn’t come at an affordable deal and is way too much for the smartphone, especially considering its poor battery life. Anyway, if you need a smartphone with a great camera, performance, and display, it should be your best bet.
