Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of Samsung Galaxy S6 at a Glance:-

Samsung has launched its Flagship phone for 2015 with two Variant in design i.e. Galaxy S6 and Galaxy G6 Edge. The handset featuring 16 MP camera, Exynos 2.1 GHz processor, 3 GB Ram, 128 GB ROM and 2550 mAh battery. The 5.1 inches Smartphone made up of combination of Quality plastic, sturdy metal frames and Gorilla Glass 4 with rounded sides. Display has resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 (Quad HD) with 577 ppi display density has crystal clear and sharp images which are incredibly vivid with great Viewing angles. 
This handset runs on Android Lollipop v5.0.2 and Samsung maintained clean version of TouchWiz without any bloatware causes unwanted battery and performance reduction. 
We have seen a lot of improvement in 16 MP primary camera, The colour production and the details of photographs in sufficient lightening is quite impressive. Performance of camera in low light is finer but as compare to iPhone 6s it shows relative more Noise in photographs. And the 5 MP front camera is not going to Selfie lovers.

Samsung Galaxy S6

Exynos 7420 2.1 GHz, Quad-core processor along with 3 GB RAM gives the super smooth experience and there is no lag in multitasking and Gaming experience is also quite impressive without frame drop and any lag/ hang; but phone slightly heats up in long run of game.
The battery is one of downside in this handset Galaxy S5 has 2800 mAh battery but the S6 has 2550 mAh battery; the battery backup of this handset is average which does not impress at all.
