At first glance, there is no denying that the use of metals has upped the premium factor of the smartphone. But look closely and you will see that Samsung s designers have generously borrowed elements from the Apple iPhone 6. In fact, the company has had to make quite a few sacrifices to make its flagship look like an iPhone.
On the specifications front, not surprisingly everything is top-notch. The Galaxy S6 flaunts a 5.1-inch QHD display, and is powered by an Exynos 7420 octa-core processor with 64-bit capability and paired with 3GB of RAM. It comes in 32/64/128GB internal storage variants, but there is no microSD slot to expand the storage.
The flagship also features a 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, a non-removable 2,550mAh battery with Ultra Power Saving Mode and wireless charging capabilities, and on the software front, it runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box wrapped under an overhauled TouchWiz UI.
