Samsung Galaxy S6 Features

Last year’s Galaxy S5 wasn’t quite successful for Samsung as the smartphone received lot of flak for its repetitive, plasticky body-design and uninspiring software filled with bloatware. This year the company is back with not just one but two models -- Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Although almost identical, both the phones translate Samsung’s efforts to reboot its phone design strategy by offering beautiful glass and metal-clad bodies, honing top-of-the-line cameras and shipping them with a smoother, bloatware-free software a.ka. TouchWiz.

Here are the specifications of Samsung Galaxy S6:
  • 5.1-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixel) Super AMOLED display, that takes the pixel density to a mind-boggling 577PPI. It is protected by the new Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 on front and back.
  • Octa-core processor (2.1GHz Quad-core Cortex-A57 and 1.5GHz Quad-core Cortex-A53); Exynos 7420 chipset (64-bit) with 14nm architecture and 3GB DDR4 RAM.
  • There’s no microSD card slot and it’s available in 32GB / 64GB / 128GB variants.
  • A non-removable 2550mAh battery is packed in and support for both Qi & PMA Wireless Charging is present.
  • The phone also has fast USB charging which Samsung claims is 1.5 times faster than the Galaxy S5, providing about 4 hours of usage after only 10 minutes of charging.
  • It comes with UFS 2.0 flash memory which provides higher performance and enhanced memory speed with lower power consumption.
  • For the first time, there’s a f/1.9 lens on both front (5MP, 120 degree wide-angle) and rear (16MP) cameras. The camera can be quickly accessed by simply double clicking the home key button.
  • The camera supports Auto Real-time High Dynamic Range (HDR), Smart Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and IR Detect White Balance.
  • For video recording, the camera can record 4K (2160p) at 30fps, 1080p at 60fps, and [email protected]
  • The phone comes with a new fingerprint sensor in the home button that no longer requires a swipe and also an infrared heart-rate monitor sitting besides the rear camera.
  • On the connectivity front, the Galaxy S6 comes with WiFi: 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4/5GHz), Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth: v4.1, USB 2.0, NFC, IR Remote and supports VoLTE as well.
  • The phone runs on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with Samsung’s toned down version of TouchWiz and useful features like Ultra Power Saving Mode, Samsung Pay, and Microsoft Apps (OneDrive 115GB storage for 2 years).
  • The company has also introduced Samsung Pay with the Galaxy S6, a new mobile payment service but its only in the United States for now. It works with both Near Field Communication (NFC) and Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) technology.
  • It’s available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum and Blue Topaz color variants.


Update: Samsung Galaxy S7 is the successor to this phone.

Samsung Galaxy S6 launched in 2015, is a step up from the previous range of Galaxy devices. According to me the S6 stands for 3 things - Sleek, Smart , Savvy. Now when I mean Sleek - This phone is quite sleek in comparison to the previous gen Galaxy range of smartphones, it feels premium to hold and the best part of the design is not curvy nor does it have the plastic back case. The phone is completely ensconced by Gorilla Glass, which does make it delicate to handle but you will like it, it comes across as more premium and a worthy competitor to the iPhone 6. Smart - The phone can be a one stop shop for your family's daily remote tussle in the living room, You can program it according to your rooms requirement (AC, TV and DTH) and voila here it is on the peel remote. Pretty cool I must say for a phone than can completely replace your remote! Savvy as in the phone does know what you need and is clearly adept at fulfilling your requirement's being it the worthy camera or the the finger print sensor or the fast processor (not getting into specs). One more advantage is this phone is for the disabled friendly - visually impaired coupled with the dexterity of the phone makes it a great buy. All in all i would like to conclude the S6 does definitely pack a punch and is a good buy.
The Good
  • Fast Processor
  • No lag
  • Best Camera in Good and Low Lighting
  • Accurate Fingerprint Sensor
  • Premium Design
The Bad
  • Mediocre Battery Life
  • No user replaceable battery or micro SD card slot

The new S6 has a more premium look as it is made up of a mixture of glass and metal It comes with a 16/5 MP rear/front camera along with the auto-HDR feature to automatically control the white balance and smart Optical Image Stabilization to keep the shake away.
The Good
  • The new S6 features a resolution of 557 ppi, the highest ever for a smartphone.
  • Gorilla Glass
  • Latest version of Android
  • 16 MP camera.
The Bad
  • The 2550mAh non-removable battery is a major drawback in S6.
  • The other downside of the S6 is its absence of a microSD card slot.
  • Some also believe that the absence of waterproofing which was available in S5 will also have its consequences.
