The Samsung Galaxy s6 has been out for a year now but is it still worth it in 2016? Let’s find out. Samsung has always been known for their great build quality and here with the S6 you are getting what you pay for. The whole phone is constructed with a metal strip around the sides and a glass finish to round it all off. While using the phone I found it to be quite slippery in the hand as the back of the device is made out of glass. At the front of the device you will see your Samsung logo at the top and your typical home button from Samsung with a fingerprint reader. The fingerprint reader works well and if you have big thumbs you may find it hard to unlock your device. The screen on this device is a 5. 1 1440 by2560 pixels per inch.
This screen is a super a could screen so you will expect a lot of inky blacks and some great colors. On the back of the device you will get a camera hump sticking out so one drop with this device on its back that’s it’s shattered. On the camera you will get a 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization. The camera takes great photos with a decent amount of light and these photos are totally usable for today’s standards. I like how Samsung’s image processing always pops out those colors and makes those images vibrant. The phone can also record 4K UHD at 30 frames per second which is brilliant.
On the performance you are getting Samsung’s Exynos 7420 octa-core CPU with 3GB of RAM. In my opinion 2 or more gigabyte bytes of RAM will run android with no slowdown. All these specs in this phone will out pass any mid-ranged phone. The device is running android Marshmallow with Samsung’s Touch wiz which is a heavily skinned UI over stock android. This device is confirmed to get android Nougat in the future but at the moment it’s still on Marshmallow. To be honest in my opinion I like clean android and if you do then I guess the only way you can resolve this is by using nova launcher and downloading a stock android theme for the S6.
The battery on this phone is a 2600mah battery. This is probably the worst thing I found with this phone. Now there are devices with 3000mah batteries like the One plus 3 or the bezel-less Xiaomi Mi Mix with a massive 4400mah battery. It does come with what Samsung call it adaptive fast charging but it’s still a shame to have a small battery in this phone. The phone also comes with some extra features like a heart rate monitor on the back and an accelerator. So is the Samsung Galaxy S6 worth it? Yes it’s definitely worth the money. You are not getting a crappy phone here. You are getting a phone with great build quality great performance camera with OIS and the only thing that is really disappointing the battery but otherwise that I still recommend it.
