Samsung Galaxy S6 Smartphone Review

 

Successor to the throne. Samsung wants to claim the smartphone crown with the Galaxy S6. Those are not just marketing slogans; the South Korean high-end Android device really puts up a convincing performance in our review and can secure the top spot in...

Very sharp display, High build quality, LTE Cat.6, Very high system performance, Excellent camera, Supports wireless charging, Fingerprint reader

No microSD slot, Battery not replaceable

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is a big step ahead in many ways. First of all, you get a classy chassis made of metal and glass, which has an almost perfect build quality and can impress with its light weight and compact dimensions. The South Koreans have also...

Samsung Galaxy S6 (Sprint)

 

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the best Android flagship on Sprint with an attractive design, a brilliant display, a powerful processor, and a crisp new camera.

Attractive glass-and-metal design. Gorgeous display. Fast processor.

Lacks expandable memory and removable battery.

Software and Conclusions The 32GB Galaxy S6 on Sprint runs Android 5.1.1 and comes with 22.78GB of available storage. The bloatware is trimmed down here compared with previous generations of the flagship, but there is still a good amount. On the Sprint...

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active ( camo white)

 

Cloaked in blue or gray camouflage or all-black, the Active series evokes a sense of combat against day-to-day spills, drops and breaks, while also appealing to a class of people who engage in "active" lifestyles.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active's long-lived battery and resistance to water, dust and scuffs make it more appealing than the regular Galaxy S6. Its shortcut button conveniently launches two different apps of your choice.

Built of plastic with thick edging, the S6 Active isn't a particularly attractive device, certainly not as glamorous as metal or glass phones. No expandable storage option means you're locked to 32GB.

AT&T customers looking for a sturdier handset will find the Galaxy S6 Active a worthy upgrade to an already top-caliber phone.

Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge review: Samsung's best phones in years

 

This more expensive version of the Galaxy S6 banks it all on looks. It performs just as well as its cousin in every task we threw at it, but the few software gimmicks that make use of the Edge's beautiful curved display just don't do much to justify...

Sturdy, stylish design ; Impeccable camera experience ; Great day-to-day performance ; TouchWiz is finallyworth using

Battery life could be better ; Fingerprint sensor can be flaky ; It's not waterproof ; No microSD or removable battery

I've never been a huge fan of Samsung phones. For years, the software felt too kludgy, the designs chintzy and scattershot. Not so this time. Samsung has in the S6 a flagship that feels well thought-out and complete in a way I wasn't sure the company...

Review: Samsung Galaxy S6

 

This new Galaxy flagship is beautiful, it's powerful, it's really easy to use. It's the best Android phone you can buy right now.

Gorgeous, sleek design. The screen is so high-res it's ridiculous. The best camera this side of the iPhone 6, and you can launch it in an instant. Fast, powerful hardware everywhere you look

Still too much TouchWiz. The phone can feel a little slick in your hands. A lot of bloatware---but at least you can remove it

Samsung Galaxy S6 ( 32GB, topaz blue)

 

Gone is the utilitarian plastic build of every Galaxy S past. So long; bye-bye. In its place, the electronics giant paves both sides of its marquee phone in glass, and ties the package in an aluminum alloy bow. Samsung even tops itself with a double...

The upscale Samsung Galaxy S6's smooth glass-and-matte-metal body, improved fingerprint reader, and convenient new camera shortcut key make the phone a stunner. Samsung's decluttered take on Android 5.0 brings the beauty inside, too.

Longtime fans will bristle at the Galaxy S6's nonremovable battery and absent expandable storage. The phone has an intensely reflective backing and looks embarrassingly like the iPhone 6. Battery life, while good, falls short of last year's Galaxy.

Worldly looks and top-notch specs make the impressive, metal Samsung Galaxy S6 the Android phone to beat for 2015.
