The New Samsung GALAXY S6
Hello folks, it is that time of the year again when Samsung releases their next iteration of the GALAXY S series into their line. However, unlike the last few variations of the GALAXY S series the NEW Galaxy S6 and the GALAXY S6 EDGE is the latest addition in Samsung tech that actually looks and feels promising. Seeing the model’s in person in a Samsung store it truly does raise ones eye brow. A form factor that is so familiar yet something about them being quite new and delightful. For the GALAXY S6 model we will let you know of its features, thoughts and other info that is a must know for all phone owners world wide.
Design & Specs
The design of the GALAXY S6 actually got leaked online to the public a while back so many already knew what was coming. However, the final finished product and announcement provides a bit of a wow factor to many who are in the market for a new smart phone or the tech followers. The good news is that Samsung finally listened to the many requests and demands of Samsung users wanting a more Premium Galaxy device. Samsung’s answer? Metal and glass. Basically, the Galaxy S6 is built from scratch with high quality Gorilla glass 4 and an aluminium alloy housing. From all that we get a stunning device that, as expected, feels great and looks amazing. It feels as though Samsung was also giving an answer to the iPhone 6 quality as well as HTC’s One series. The devices are compact in hand and feels sturdy while handling and still holds a comfortable screen size but with higher resolution capabilities comparable to the iPhone 6. The BIGGEST change to these phones is that they dropped the IP67 certification that made the phone Water and Dust proof. One may call it a sacrifice of functionality for form factor. We believe that not that many will complain about this shift back to being vulnerable to natural dangers as we do not see many people actually taking on the hassle of using the phone in showers and swimming while getting various gunk and unnecessary chemical build up on the phones from shampoo and chlorine.

Power & Capabilities
It is interesting to see Samsung dropping the inclusion of the QUALCOMM series CPU in the GALAXY S6 line but rather, opted for their own home designed Exynos Octa-core processors. The good news is that the Exynos 7420 processor supports the super fast charging which allows up to 2 hour’s of video play back with only 10 minutes of charging. The GALAXY S6 also utilize a new type of FLASH memory feature which led to the decision where Samsung dropped a removable back and microSD slot in the device. The included UFS (universal flash storage) 2.0 provides enhanced data speeds as well as lower power consumption. We also see that the GALAXY S6 still has the heart rate monitor, finger print scanner still intact for users to take advantage of. The camera is quite capable in low light settings due to the aperture feature of f/1.9 and fast capture capabilites.
