Voted as the best smartphone at the Mobile World Congress in 2015, the Samsung Galaxy S6 represents the latest in cell phone technology. There are two versions a standard S6 and S6 Edge. The Galaxy S6 is a new day in cell phones at Samsung since much of the S5 was left in the dust. And as the year has progressed so has the software. This article covers some of the features of the Samsung Galaxy S6.
The operating system started with the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS. This has been updated to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. To update your phone if you have one, go to Settings > About Device > Software Update to see if it's available. This is the latest in the over the top offerings from Samsung.
Camera and Video Technology
The camera resolution increased to 2,560 X 1,440 pixels and delivers the best graphics on the market. Pictures and video quality is far superior to most rivals in the cell phone market. With video recording resolution of UHD 3840 X 2160 there isn't anything to compare it to. The picture quality is the same and has auto focus. With all the focus on power, the battery is the biggest drawback.
Battery and RAM
It will last 21 hours and is 3000 mAh. This will go quickly though with all the power the phone is using. The RAM isn't expandable and the batteries can't be removed. You can't replace the battery if you run out of the present one. Not good when you need a working phone or using it alot say in a conference.
The internal memory is either 32 or 64 GB and 4 GB of RAM. Again depending on how you use your phone, this may make a difference. For those doing video conferencing or powerpoint presentations this might not be enough. For the standard consumer using a phone primarily for phone calls and occasional videos, this might be more than enough.
There are several sensors on the phone including accelerometer, barometer, fingerprint sensor, gyro, geomagnetic, light, heart rate sensor among other sensors. The cool thing about the heart rate sensor is you can use the phone for a workout guide.
For most mobile phone users, this is more than enough phone for everyday use. For the tech savvy or heavy graphic and video users, you might feel the battery power isn't enough. But overall this is a heavy duty phone with all the bells and whistles for the consumer.
