Samsung Galaxy S6

 

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the predecessor of the Samsung Galaxy S7.

The Design

As expected, Samsung decided to go full-metal with the Galaxy S6. The metal design is indeed an impressive one, with the use of matte aluminium alloy frame. It is a marked departure from its predecessors in this regard.

The straight-sided smartphone has slightly-rounded corners and is protected on the front with state-of-the-art Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

Display and Camera

Samsung thought it well to leave the screen unchanged as it was on the Galaxy S5. Samsung Galaxy S6 is fitted with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with an impressive resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and an amazing 577 pixels per inch!

In short, you have a crispy clear screen here. But the screen is not as curved as that on the Galaxy S6 Edge.

For the camera, Samsung provided a 16 megapixels sensor with an F1.9 lens, which at the launch event outperformed Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus in terms of low-light pictures.

The super-fast snapper can be quickly launched by double-tapping the Home button. There is also a quality 5 megapixels front-facing camera on the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Processor and Software

Just as it had been speculated in some quarters, Samsung’s own 64-bit, octa-core Exynos processor was chosen for the Samsung Galaxy S6 over the more popular and tested Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset.

There must be something which we don’t see but that the smartphone manufacturer knows about the Exynos processor here.

LPDDR4 RAM of 3GB, which the company described as 88 percent faster, supports the processor.

The device will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB internal storage models. Samsung Galaxy S6 runs on the latest Android 5.0 (Lollipop) operating system with an improved TouchWiz user interface.
