The wait is over, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge are finally here. The main question is; did they deliver? Well, as a Sony user, I was really looking forward to see what Samsung has to offer but sadly the Korean giant managed to disappoint me in 2 departments. First being the departure from the Snapdragon and using the Exynos and the second one being the exclusion of Micro SD card slot. Now, I know the phone is available in 3 different storage options but for a person who carries his music with him, even the highest storage option might fall short. But enough of my own expectations and disappointments, let’s look at the phones.
Samsung Galaxy S6
The first one is the Samsung Galaxy S6, this year’s next big thing. For many, the phone is definitely an improvement over the Galaxy S5. However, the screen size remains the same but we see a bump in the screen resolution. The Galaxy S6 comes with an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor with 4 cores clocked at 2.1 gigahertz and the remaining 4 clocked at 1.4 gigahertz, the processor is only 14nm and has a 64 bit architect. Apart from that, we are given 3 gigs of LPDDR4 RAM. Samsung made sure that the RAM is one of the fastest in the market so you won’t be encountering any lag of sort. The phone is available in 32, 64 and 128 gigs of internal storage and surprisingly, Samsung ditched the micro-sd card slot. On the back we have a 16 megapixel shooter wit OIS and a 5 megapixel shooter sits on the front. The phone supports LTE CAT 6 as the network. In addition to that, there’s a 2,550 mAh of non-removable battery providing the juice to the hardware. The Galaxy S6 will be available in white, black, gold and blue.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge follows the footsteps of the Galaxy S6, the specs are identical. However, the S6 Edge comes with a 3 sided display. Rest of the specs remain the same, apart from the battery. We now get a 2,600 mAh non-removable battery. The Galaxy S6 Edge will be available in 4 colours; white, dark green, gold and black. The home key will be acting as fingerprint sensor once again and will be able to use Samsung Pay. Last but not the least, both phones will have metal exoskeleton. These will be the firs phone of Galaxy S series to have metal bodies.
