The Samsung Galaxy S6 was a cell phone that distinguishes Samsung, but seems a bit late in 2017, has now been overtaken by the S7 and the S8. We would expect a number of improvements over two generations, but the performance and the camera, the abyss is significant. Add to the fact that you can not add your own microSD card in the S6, and it’s better to look elsewhere, even if you see a really good deal.It was great for the time and brought Samsung on track for unbeatable follow-ups. And those are the phones you should look for now, if you can stretch them.

Choose a word to describe the Samsung Galaxy S6. Wonderful. Mighty Special Other Thanks What will he do? Galaxy S5 has only one of them under his belt and suggestion … it starts with a P.The Samsung Galaxy S6 is not the next big thing. This is the “zero project”. The reboot But was there really something wrong with the S-Line, the standard setter, the house of the super droid? OK, the design had to be safe. But other brands are doing facelifts: Samsung is doing a complete review.It had to be the message they wanted to send.And if that means giving up the memory card slot, the replaceable battery and the water seal, so be it. That’s part of the message too.
Anyway, the Galaxy S6 has been revamped and says goodbye to plastic. Glass and metal are a critically acclaimed combination. In other words, depending on how boring you are with the missing card slot and the sealed battery, copy Apple and Sony. Okay, the memory, the battery and the impregnation are easy to disturb, so let’s see what the Samsung Galaxy S6 in return offers.
The new look is impressive and exciting and Samsung’s AMOLED brand is the perfect combination. This is a 5.1 inch immersion QHD resolution, for the unbelievable 577ppi, though “amazing” does not work for Samsung. They will call him “the best of them all” and he will be right. And thats just the beginning.
The 5.1-inch screen of the Samsung Galaxy S6 is really brilliant and certainly one of the best screens we have seen on a mobile phone. Only G4 LG and the Galaxy Note 4 can take it in terms of sharpness, but the Super AMOLED S6 Panel cuts across all other aspects.Compared to most LCD phones, the Galaxy S6 is more dynamic, although Full HD (1080p) screens are just as strong, unless you can see a few inches on the screen. The screen of the S5 is as lively as the S6, but the S6 produces cleaner, more natural targets. The whites look a bit blue on the S5, while the S6 is closer to the iPhone 6, which is the best in this department.
Just run our battery tests at 170 cd / m2, which is just over half when the car is off, but still get the full daily use of S6, no matter how much you consume. 2.550mAh S6 battery is not as big as the Galaxy S5, S6 or even Edge’s 2.800mAh battery, which is 50mAh larger, but at least we managed a respectable 37m in our 13h video streaming test.It’s true, a little bit disappointed, that we could not reach the battery life of 17 hours and one half of S5, S6 or even Edge, which managed two hours under the same conditions. However, this is still pretty good compared to the rest of the competition as the HTC One M9 lasted just over 9 hours, the LG G4 only two minutes to 12 hours and the iPhone 6 to 13 hours.
Of course, some will be annoyed that the battery is no longer removable, but fortunately, Samsung has added wireless charging. It is compatible with the WPC1.1 and PMA 1.0 standards and should therefore work on virtually any platform. There is also a 10-minute network fast charging mode that can be used for four hours.
Like its predecessor, the Galaxy S6 has a heart rate sensor that measures heart rate. The device also has a fingerprint scanner based on the touch that unlocks the device.
Samsung’s high-end phone cameras have always been at least above average, but that’s no longer enough. Nailing the camera was crucial this time, and in short, Samsung did a great job. But first the broad strokes. The S6 and Edge share the same 16 megapixel camera (no less), which does not sound so impressive compared to other sensors in other cell phones. Nevertheless, the combination of sensor plus optical image stabilization and an f / 1.9 lens is very effective; Almost all the photos I have taken are properly colored, sharp and finely detailed.
Low-light performance is also generally excellent, though sometimes you have to touch it to focus on what you want. HDR mode can be very helpful here when photons are rare, but it is best to take pictures of dark landscapes or objects that remain motionless. The fact that we have a beautiful AMOLED Quad-HD display for viewing is also an advantage (although the color setting of the screen may cause the actual picture on your phone to be different than on a computer or TV). The 5 megapixel wide-angle lens with wide-angle lens makes some selfies very spacious, because they take up much more than you can imagine. So get closer to the phone for the best results. Make sure you activate beauty mode to prevent your face from being covered with foundation. This does not mean that the camera experience is perfect; Auto exposure can sometimes be a little tricky, resulting in extremely hot shots when it gets dark.
If you’re not sure what to think and feel about the Samsung Galaxy S6, you’ve come to the right place. We will do it for you. Here is the case. You can feel what you want. Impressed Annoyed confused? It looks familiar.
We expect every new generation of Galaxy S to add new features and enhance specifications. The Galaxy S6 is removed. It has been encoded in Samsung’s DNA to exceed any competitor’s specifications. The Galaxy S6 renounces the same features as Samsung without a doubt at the top.
Is that your way of saying that we’ll even beat you with one arm on your back? We did not become market leader because the competition was stupid enough not to worry about expanding storage and replaceable batteries.
Who knows, they can be so arrogant. Or maybe the Galaxy S6 is trying to say that the S line can change and is even better than most.
But can it still be the best Galaxy S smartphone without a memory card slot, replaceable battery and waterproof? The best screen and chipset in the business could also help.
Main conclusions of the test
Excellent workmanship, top quality, very good grip, simple pocket size.
The best Quad AM AMED display of its kind with the highest pixel density per inch to date. The contrast ratio, the viewing angles and the readability of the sunlight are high.
The battery life is above average, but significantly worse than the S5.
TouchWiz has become simpler and more customizable (theme downloads), fewer features, but less clutter.
Excellent overall performance, probably the fastest Android smartphone out there
The speaker is medium in size and quieter than the Galaxy S5
Excellent multimedia package outside the box
Solid audio quality
The 16 megapixel main camera is one of the best in terms of detail sharpness, noise and sharpness quality and features, but our test cards show that the Galaxy Note 4 is a little better.
The video quality is excellent in 2160p and 1080p resolution, but the Galaxy Note 4 video is a bit sharper again.
