Samsung Galaxy S6

Considered to dominate the smartphone’s world this year together with the iPhone 6 the Samsung Galaxy S6 is remarkably similar, in design, features and cost, but addresses to a totally different crowd. If we were to underline some of its great features, we would have to mention:

Premium material and design

The Galaxy S6 is made with the top-of-the-line materials. It has a metal frame and Gorilla Glass 4 front and back panels. Gorilla Glass is designed to be tough and resistant against scratches and shattering. Comes in several color options and have a high-end look and feel that bests other phones on the market.

Fixed storage

The Galaxy S6 has either 32GB, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. You cannot add extra storage with a microSD card -- once you hit your limit, you'll need to delete files or apps for more space. If you need to backup photos, videos and other files, you'll need to rely on cloud storage.

Performance

Being provided with a quad core Exynos 7420 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, Samsung Galaxy S6 comes factory installed with Android v5.0.2 Lollipop OS. This super fast processor is accompanied by 3GB RAM and Mali T760 GPU. Overall the combination of processor and RAM is an awesome coupling which will allow users to use and install vast number of Applications without worrying about lagging and space.

Non removable battery

The Galaxy S6 has embedded battery which means you can't swap out the battery when you need extra power. We must admit that we are not very please with this, but there are alternative options, of course.

Wireless charging and quick charging

Like many other top Android phones, the Galaxy S6 supports wireless charging with a separate wireless charger, which you can find in many stores today. The phone needs to be placed on a wireless charging pad to add juice without fumbling with wires. It promises to charge quickly...but we’ll see.

A big high resolution screen

The Galaxy S6 benefits from a large, super sharp screen that looks impressive in person and has an even higher resolution than the iPhone 6.

Mobile payments

The Galaxy S6 has it’s own NFC-based mobile payment systems but the Samsung Pay promises much wider availability, thanks to built-in technology that lets you pay with your phone at older credit card terminals that don't have NFC. However, it's not slated to launch until later this year in South Korea and the US. In the meantime, you can use Google Wallet, which solely uses NFC.

Fingerprint scanner

The Galaxy S6 has fingerprint scanner built into the home buttons that you let you unlock the phone and authorize payments by tapping or swiping your fingers. You can program several fingers into the phone and the experience of using the scanner is comparable to the one on the iPhone 6.

A dedicated VR accessory

The Samsung Gear VR headset pairs with the Galaxy S6 to create an immersive video-watching and game-playing experience. VR might still be a bit ahead of its time, but if you're into it, you'll be able to use it with the S6.

Built-in heart-rate monitor

If you want to test your resting heart rate, or while exercising to see how hard you're pushing, you will be able to do it with the S6's LED flash doubles as a heart-rate monitor that can also measure your blood oxygen saturation. Of course, they aren't the most accurate heart monitors, but it's nice to have the option on hand.

Step tracking

The S6 has sensors and motion processors that track your movement in steps and elevation, acting as pedometers. You can see your activity in dedicated apps on the phones and keep tabs on how much you move throughout the day.
