Samsung Galaxy S6 is a totally fascinating phone released more than a year ago, provisioned with a high-tech Octa-Core CPU (as a matter of fact they are really a Quad-Core running at 2100 megahertz and another Quad-Core at 1500 MHz), a comfortable 5.1" screen, a 16 megapixels back camera and a 5 mega-pixels front facing camera.
The S6 is offerred in many different color variations like black, blue, white and gold. Being just 0.27" thick,this cellphone is incredibly slim and good-looking. The S6 is quite a compact cellphone, considering it packs a 5.1 inches display and it is only 5.65 inches long. This phone is much lighter than what you would expect from a cellphone of this size. This phone design uses Glass and Aluminium, giving this phone a high quality look and a better resistance.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is equipped with a spectacular 5.1-inches screen with a 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels that compose the screen. Its screen uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.
This cellphone ships with a Exynos 7 Octa 7420 system chip, including a very powerful 64-bit Octa-Core processor (it's actually a Quad-Core clocking at 2100 megahertz and another Quad-Core speeding at 1.5 gigahertz) with a great 3 GB RAM. Graphic rendering usually eats lots of CPU time, so this device also uses a Mali-T760 MP8 graphic processing unit running at 650 megahertz to take care of them, leaving the CPU free for other tasks. A good advantage of this phone is the 128 GB large internal storage memory and although it doesn't have an external memory slot, it it is more than enough to install hundreds of apps without thinking about filling the device.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 has two cameras, a 16 MP back camera and a 5 megapixels front facing camera. the S6's back camera lens has a maximum f/1.9 aperture so it can shoot clear pictures even in low-light conditions. This cellphone can also film 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 frames per second. The camera also counts with a lot of useful characteristics: auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, optical image stabilization, face detection shooting, HDR mode, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 provides wi-fi connection (which can be provided to other devices around, acting as a router), 4G LTE-A ultra fast connection type or fast 3G internet connection, supported by HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This phone comes with two Nano SIM cards so it is able to work with two different phone lines and even different carriers in the same cellphone.
The S6 also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.1), Fingerprint ID, GPS (Global Positioning System), Infrared Blaster and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.
This phone features a big capacity 2550 mAh non-replaceable battery, which is quite poor for a demanding cellphone like this. A possible problem to evaluate is that this phone's battery isn't replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to lose capacity, having to change the whole cellphone.
Samsung is offering this phone for only $ 950, which is an incredible price comparing with other similar phones. This phone is the right one for you no matter whether you want this phone mainly for social networks and internet browsing, love photography, want it to play lots of games or will use it for work.
