Samsung Galaxy S6 reviews
UK tech site Recombu and Android Authority have posted reviews of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and both are equally impressed with the flagship. The positives include a gorgeous display, great performance, camera, fingerprint sensor and most importantly the build quality. These positives far outweigh the cons that include a smudge-loving glossy body, and the company’s decision to do away with a removable battery, expandable storage and water resistant capabilities.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge reviews
The Edge variant has been reviewed by the folks at BeginnersTech and MobileSyrup. The positives of the Galaxy S6 continue over to the Edge variant as well. In essence these include the build quality, performance, camera and the curved display. But the variant has its share of negatives as well, and the latter especially claims that it is not as comfortable to hold as the Galaxy S6.
