AndroidForums.com discussion: Galaxy S6
Out with the old, in with the new. Just like that last year’s Samsung Galaxy S5 is old news. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is here to dominate the Android landscape in 2015. With every new Samsung Galaxy device there are people with the old model wondering if they should upgrade. Let’s compare the new with the old and find out.
The last couple of Samsung Galaxy devices have not made compelling cases for upgraders. The design was becoming stake and overused, and the new features were gimmicky. This year Samsung went back to the drawing board and made some big changes. The S6 is glass on the front and back with metal all around the edges. It blows the S5 out of the water in terms of design.
Samsung has also done a great job at improving core features. They’ve bumped the screen resolution to 2560×1440, and the front-facing camera to 5MP. The rear camera resolution has stayed the same, but Samsung has done a lot to improve performance. The fingerprint scanner doesn’t require a swipe up on the screen anymore, and the S6 has built-in wireless Qi and PMA wireless charging.
Samsung has made the Galaxy S a hot phone again. This device should do very well this year, and it’s obviously worth the upgrade from the Galaxy S5. What do you think? Has Samsung made a comeback? Are you getting the Galaxy S6?
