Apple has already “rocked” the market by capturing record sales for its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Despite having a poor performance through the Q4 2014, Samsung seems to be geared to make a promising comeback with its new Galaxy S6. Samsung’s new flagship phone features better camera, looks and a flawless software.
After years of releasing the Galaxy series, it seems Samsung has learnt how and why to streamline its devices. The 16-megapixel high-resolution camera allows you to capture high-focus images. Colours don’t become so much solid to look unnatural.
The camera is easy and fast to launch – a single tap at the home button. There is no need to waste time on sliding or tapping. A tap at the home button, even when the screen is off, will bring that lens to life.
When it comes to looks and feel, the new Galaxy S6 is closer to the old iPhones than to its own predecessors. It has metal sides and a glass rear. The phone needs careful handling as it can easily slip out of your hands. Interestingly, the flagship phone in the Galaxy series doesn’t have waterproof protection.
Some of the main features of the phone can be summarized as a 5.1inch Super AMOLED display with a staggering 577 ppi density, Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS, a Cortex A53 and Cortex A57 CPU option, 32/64/128 GB internal storage without any expansion slot, 3GB RAM and a 5-megapixel secondary camera. Samsung has replaced several icons with text. The controls are flawless but you will feel them to be too sensitive at times.
The iPhone 6 has found an able competitor in the Galaxy S6. But Apple seems to be flying on a wave of brand value. It will take some time to find out if Samsung will be able to make a comeback with the new release.
Advance orders are already active and deliveries are expected by 10th April. The prices start from $600 for the Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S6 Edge starts from $700.
