Samsung Galaxy S6 review

 

The best Android phone you can buy right now

Great for media ; Super sharp screen ; Amazing camera

Battery not good enough ; Price too high

So close to perfect, but a high price and iffy battery really let it down.

Samsung Galaxy S6 review: Samsung's crowning moment - Pocket-lint

 

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is a excellent smartphone. Samsung needed change and the S6 brings it by the bucketload. There's performance at plenty of levels,

Great metal and glass design, plenty of power for fluid and fast experience, excellent camera, some great user interface refinement, great display

No microSD support, battery life isn't great, resolution increase doesn't bring great returns, no wireless charger in the box

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is a phone that ushers in change on a number of levels. Its new design could have been a disaster, but Samsung needed change, it needed to refresh its flagship Galaxy line, and the SGS6 is the embodiment of that.

Samsung Galaxy S6

 

The Galaxy S6 arrives during a dark period for Samsung where it's lead on arch rival Apple is diminishing. Designed to reverse this trend the Galaxy S6 works to completely rethink Samsung's smartphone offering.

Excellent camera ; Quality look and feel ; Wireless and fast charging ; Superb screen ; Powerful performance

So-so battery life ; Some App crashing issues

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs S6 comparison: S5 & S6 - what's the difference?

 

It's lost a microSD slot, waterproofing, a removable battery and many fans because of it, but the S6 is still a brilliant upgrade

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is significantly faster than the Galaxy S5, with a beautiful Quad HD screen that's significantly higher in resolution and much brighter than that on the S5. The new Galaxy shows a vast improvement in design, too, and there are...

Samsung Galaxy S6 review: 4 months on with the best phone of 2015

 

Samsung's Galaxy S6 is the phone I loved so much when I reviewed it I went out and bought one. Here are my experiences 4 months on

Samsung's Galaxy S6 is the best Android phone of 2015 so far, although we've yet to see what's to come from the LG G4 and Sony Xperia Z4. It's fast, it's well built, it has a gorgeous screen and the software isn't overly intrusive. The fingerprint...

It’s virtually impossible to pick a winner here, as both are fantastic phones. Choosing between them is difficult, unless you have a specific need for a feature which is available only on one phone, or if you’re already tied into either iOS or Android...
