Samsung Galaxy S6 is a breath-taking cellphone launched in April 2015, having a 5.1-inches screen, a very powerful 64 bits Octa-Core processor (composed by a Quad-Core speeding at 2100 MHz and an extra Quad-Core running at 1.5 gigahertz), and 2 cameras, a 16 MP back camera and a 5 megapixels front side camera. Let's take a closer view of what this phone can do.

This device is a very compact device, taking into account that it features a 5.1 inches display and it is just 5.65" long and 2.78" wide. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is incredibly thin and comfortable, with a thickness of just 0.27". Samsung made an excellent job making this cellphone as lightweight as 4.87 oz. Samsung sells this phone in a lot of color options like black, blue, white and gold. Talking about its materials, the S6 is majorly built with Glass and Aluminium, which gives a premium design and improved resistance.

Samsung packed this cellphone with an absolutely amazing 5.1" display, and a 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, giving this cellphone a very detailed image quality. Its display uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

Samsung decided to power this phone with a Exynos 7 Octa 7420 system chip, backed up by an extremely fast 64-bit Octa-Core CPU (as a matter of fact they are really a Quad-Core running at 2100 megahertz and another Quad-Core at 1500 MHz) with a great 3 GB RAM. Collaborating with graphic rendering, this phone also counts with a Mali-T760 MP8 graphic processing unit working at 650 MHz. The S6 comes with an excellent 64 GB internal storage memory and although it doesn't include an external SD slot, it it is more than enough to install tons of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without worrying about how much storage capacity is left.

This phone provides wi-fi capability (and it can be shared with other devices acting as a wireless router or modem), LTE-A (4G) , the fastest connection type and the fastest 3G data connection, over HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

The S6 is equipped with two cameras, a 16 MP back camera and a 5 mega-pixels front side camera. Its back camera lens has a maximum F1.9 aperture so it can capture very nice photographs even in low-light environments. This device can also capture 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 fps. To complete the camera, it also counts with a large number of cool features: auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, optical image stabilization, HDR mode, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.

This phone also includes a wide range of useful characteristics like Fingerprint Scanner, Wireless charging compatibility, Near Field Communication (NFC), Infrared Port, Bluetooth (4.1) and GPS Geolocation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone uses a 2550 mAh inmense non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the S6 with an incredibly long battery duration. An issue to evaluate is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to last shorter, although with such a huge battery size you will probably buy a new device before it becomes a real problem.

Samsung is offering this phone for 499 dollars, which is not so cheap for a cellphone this level. No matter if you want a cellphone for work, want a phone to mostly use social networks and internet browsing, are a photography fan or are looking for a gamer cellphone, you will probably love this cellphone.
