Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge at the on-going 2015 Mobile World Congress. As with other flagship devices, the S6 range has received a highly glorified promotion and here we have it today, borne unto us. Yay or Nay? You decide later!
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are built in a pure glass and metal body all round plus they both have a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen protecting the display. You might like to know that the S5 has a plastic casing and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 instead. Similar to other devices in the series, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge features the conventional Home button but with a better fingerprint sensor this time. Fomerly, one has to swipe a finger across the sensor; now, you only need to place your finger!
Both phones come packed with 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display, 3GB RAM and a Quad Core Exynos processor. As for operating system, both devices come with Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop) out of the box and Samsung TouchWiz UI slapped on top of it. Speaking of TouchWIz, Samsung has gotten rid of most Google Apps for Microsoft services. The S6 and Edge colleague now come with Microsoft OneDrive cloud storage, OneNote and Skype pre-loaded. Microsoft also added some icing by giving 115GB of free OneDrive storage to anyone who buys these devices for two years. TouchWiz is still TouchWiz here though, there’s not much difference as to what we have seen in the past.
Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are built with 16MP back camera with optical image stabilization. LED flash, autofocus, touchfocus, panorama, HDR and HD video recording are not missing here. On the front part of it, there’s a 5MP camera in place.
There are three variants of S6 and S6 Edge based on on-board storage. The 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage variant and there is no SD card slot for both devices, sorry. The new thing (as a reply to Apple Pay) is Samsung Pay which we hope will gain good grounds as we move on.
