Oh no! Looks like this phone has been discontinued. But worry not, we have phones similar to Samsung Galaxy S6 that are still available.
The Galaxy S, Samsung’s flagship series, added two new phones to its roster when it came out with Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. It was announced back in March and released in April, this year. Following the tradition of its predecessors in the Galaxy S series, S6 also comes bearing the best specifications and features to be found in an Android device, according to Samsung. Although it fails to deliver waterproofing, a removable battery, and a microSD slot, among other minor things, it is still quite an improvement over the Galaxy S5.
As a flagship phone, the phone supports all three network technologies, namely GSM, HSPA, LTE with the obvious variations in band support across the world with all the different region-specific editions of the device. The Gorilla Glass 4 protection is certainly an improvement over its predecessor and with a Super AMOLED screen size of 5.1 inches, the resolution has gone up to 2K which is quite the standard now among the flagship devices.
It comes with Lollipop (5.0.2) out of the box and can go up to (5.1.1). Samsung opted for Exynos 7420 overlooking the Snapdragon chipsets with the Cortex-A53 (Quad-core 1.5GHz) and the Cortex-A57 (Quad-core 2.1GHz) processors on board along with 3 Gigs of RAM. The two separate processors are used for different tasks to keep the phone running smoothly at all times while also taking a lesser toll on the non-removable battery.
The back-camera remaining at 16 megapixels, has also received an improvement in the aperture department with f/1.9 over the predecessors f/2.2. This means the camera now captures more light and performs much better in low-light while also adding a superior bokeh in the pictures. It also has Optical Image Stabilization that will help in keeping your images stable and free of any motion-blur, in most cases. The video resolutions and the image sizes remain the same. The app also provides a lot of customization and is quickly accessible by simply tapping the home button twice.
The front-camera also received an upgrade going from 2 to 5 megapixels and also an aperture of f/1.9, which means a much better low-light performance. It also surprisingly records 2K video at 30 frames per second which is a significant upgrade over the 1080p recording of its predecessor.
All in all, the S6 is surely one of the best Android devices as it has the top-notch specifications and all the fancy features that most of the flagships these days are supposed to have. But all that glamour comes at a price and while there are phones like OnePlus 2, among others, that provide the best of specifications minus the glitter and the features but also are very affordable.
