Samsung Galaxy S6 Review
Here I will explain about the Samsung Galaxy S6. The Android Nougat samsung galaxy update is now rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S6 Review devices across the globe, but you’ll still have to wait a while until the Android 7.1.1 update is added to the standard Nougat build. Samsung Galaxy S6 Review gone bold on the design, taking away the usual plastic covering that festooned previous models and finally stepping into the world of metal for its flagships.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: Build quality and appearance
Where previous Samsung flagships had plastic bodies or, in the case of the Note 4, plastic backs and metal sides, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is made of glass and metal. Samsung seems to have taken a lot of the design cues from both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 4/4S.
Its back and front use panes of Gorilla Glass 4, the latest version of Corning’s ultra-tough glass. It feels a lot tougher and more expensive than plastic, textured or otherwise. There’s a valid concern that owners might end up smashing the Samsung Galaxy S6’s back, but Samsung has done its best on this front by using what is the most suitable glass readily available.
Even if Sapphire crystal was not prohibitively expensive for this role — and it is — its additional hardness actually makes it more shatter-prone than Gorilla Glass 4. The glass panels are joined by aluminium sides which have been contoured for comfort. In terms of feeling like a phone worth its asking price, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is a huge step up over the Galaxy S5.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: storage and fingerprint Reader
After the best part of a decade making Android phones, Samsung is finally acknowledging that a phone feeling expensive has its own value, shallow as it may be. This is a very Apple-like sentiment, and unfortunately that Apple approach has bled into the approach to storage.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 does not have an SD card slot. Instead, there is a wider choice of built-in storage capacities – 32GB, 64GB and 128GB versions with a £80 price jump between each tier. If you find you need more storage than you have built-in, then your only recourse is to either use online storage or to delete or move extraneous files to your PC. By making storage non-expandable, Samsung can capitalise on the greater margins of the higher-storage versions at the risk of losing some customers.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: Knox security
Some of Samsung’s Knox security software has now been built into Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is pre-installed on the Samsung Galaxy S6. Android for Work is Google’s name for this subset of Knox. It’s more than just the ability to keep your work and personal apps and data separate, though – it’s the basis for Google’s own MDM service as our separate review details.
Samsung has kept some Knox features for its own phones, such as the ability for IT managers to prevent users from using unauthorised boot loaders on their S6, VPN settings customised on an app-by-app basis and federated logins.
For consumers with simpler security needs, the Private mode will be of interest. It locks selected files, including pictures and videos behind a security measure of choice. This can be the same fingerprint used for the lock screen or a separate password.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: Screen
What it also does better than rivals is screen quality. Like other Galaxy S phones, the S6 has a Super AMOLED display. This one is 5.1 inches across and has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (also called QHD).
Its high pixel density of 577ppi means text is very sharp. Black levels are immaculate and, with the right setting, colours are excellent. The Samsung Galaxy S6 has several screen quality modes, although some can make colours look washed out while others make colours look oversaturated.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: Software
Samsung still insists on including its own TouchWiz interface on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop, but it’s far less intrusive and annoying compared to previous versions on older Galaxy phones.
It’s less cluttered with fewer extraneous dialogue boxes and far fewer needless pre-installed apps. Much of Samsung’s older TouchWiz-specific animations and appearance have been thankfully superceded by those native to Google’s Material Design. It’s a very welcome change.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: Performance
Unlike some older Samsung phones, the Samsung Galaxy S6’s performance is also very good from day one. In the past, its devices have been prone to significant lag that had to be fixed with post-release performance updates, but speed is great here.
While phone processor power is becoming largely academic for most users’ needs, this phone’s processor performance was still nonetheless impressive. Rather than using a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor like the UK variant of the Galaxy S5, all current versions of the Samsung Galaxy S6 use Samsung’s Exynos 7420 processor.
This is an eight-core CPU with four power cores clocked at 2.1GHz and four efficiency cores at 1.5GHz. This is fairly similar to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, but the chipset is manufactured using a 14nm process, allowing for greater efficiency than the 20nm Qualcomm.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: Battery Life
The Samsung Galaxy S6 no longer has a user replaceable battery, unlike older Galaxy S phones. This would be fine, except its battery life when playing H.264 videos wasn’t as lengthy as the S5. It lasted 13 hours and 40 minutes compared to the S5’s 17 hours and 18 minutes.
In general everyday use, when connected to Vodafone’s 4G network in central London, the battery still managed to last a full working day but we had to make greater use of Samsung’s power-saving modes than we did with the S5.
As with the last lead Samsung phone, there are two main battery-saver modes: a standard one that limits screen brightness and CPU power just a little, and an ultra mode that takes more drastic action by effectively turning the S6 into a black and white feature phone by limiting you to just phone calls and texts.
While the lack of an easily removable battery will be off-putting to many, the Galaxy S6 does have a fast-charge ability. Charging the battery from empty for just ten minutes using the included charger was enough to give four hours of H.264 video playback.
