All You Need to Know About: Samsung GALAXY S6

androidagent

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is a successor of it’s 2014 released Samsung Galaxy S5, as you may know that it is the first smartphone with built-in heartbeat monitor, having a fast autofocus camera with fast capture. Overall, Samsung Galaxy S5 users faced many issues like the battery life, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Camera and some Performance issue, due to this it was not a big hit in the market resulting in less sales comparing to it’s pre-successor Samsung Galaxy S4, Regardless of this Samsung plays a big role in marketing these products irrespective of what they offer.

A good advertisement gets a person buy the thing right? A good advertisement gets a person think that the product must be good.

Enough said, let’s talk about some great features Samsung Galaxy S6 offer.

Battery life:

Today everyone is concerned about their battery life, and when it comes to Samsung Galaxy S6 they back it up with a 2800mAh removable battery with features like Power Saving Mode, which you will find in every coming phone operating on lollipop today, if you’re still not satisfied no need to worry because Samsung galaxy S6 offers an Ultra Power Saving mode as well.

Indeed the battery averages up to a full day usage (24 hours), and if you are running out of battery simply activate the Power Saving Mode or the Ultra Power Saving Mode where your phone goes to grayscale mode, disabling all features like Wi-Fi making the juice lasting a whole day using a gray scale display.

Samsung Galaxy S6 also has a Fast Charging feature, where a 10 minutes of charging will save you 4 hours of usage, much better and faster than the Samsung Galaxy S5.

It has a built-in wireless charging, which is a cool thing to have in a mobile, but there’s a downside it charges slowly.

Having people still complaining about the battery life as it’s not the best, having phones like Droid Turbo which offers 21+ hours of battery life, but Samsung Galaxy S6 is worth buying for due to such great features unless you become dolorous about your battery life.

As you can see the competition is very tough when it comes to Motorola Droid Turbo, Nexus 6 and Sony Xperia Z3, Sony Xperia Z4 is yet to be released and it’s price is huge compared to Samsung Galaxy S6, However, it may seem the biggest is the best but in the end it all depends on your usage.

Design, Screen, and Built:

The old plastic built was the worst thing about Samsung back then which many people hated, but they are no longer continued, as per today’s flagship phones it has a “unibody” design with metal chassis while having the shape resemblance to its flagship smartphones.

It has a metal ring around it’s outside, making it only 138 grams lighter with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 back panel.

Now about the screen it devours with Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 5.1 inches 1440 x 2560 pixels (~577 PPI pixel density) with a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.
