Conclusion – Why you should buy S6 over Galaxy S5?

Since last 7 months Samsung’s research team is doing lots and lot of experiment and they decided to come up with the flagship phone that has large internal memory (ROM), good RAM and higher Camera features. It is for a sure that Galaxy S7 would be the first flexible smartphone from the company and S6 is going to be far better in term of CPU performance and lookwise.  Since last three series they mostly didn’t made any big changes in design but now they are planning for that and you will see the difference too. When S5 was released in March 2014, it was so costly and that’s why so many people avoid it but now Samsung decided to launch S6 at less price or with some launch offer, so that potential customer attract to buy it without any hesitation.

  1. This is the best phone I have ever had! I love it! If it’s not working for you, take it back and have it replaced. I love my G6!

  2. The claims for standby time for the S6 are a total crock. Fully charged at 10pm, 53% left at 7am the next morning. No use, “power saving” mode on, no GPS. This truly sucks!

  3. This information isn’t right. This is what I do for a loving.. the s5 is only a 13 megapixle when the s6 is only 16 megapixle not 16 vs 20.

  4. Either I have a bad phone or Samsung just completely made these numbers up.
    I have to charge my S6 3 times a day with about 1 hour or solid usage throughout the day.
    The battery is the worst battery I’ve ever seen in any phone.

    I guess I need to take mine back.

    1. You have got to be taking pretty bad care of it to get that… although, these numbers are probably accurate if you completely run the battery out of charge and fully charge it before using it… that’s sort of cheap, I have to admit. Better luck next time and I hope you enjoy your phone. (personally, I can’t wait till I get mine☺)

    2. It’s true that s6 has 32 hours talk time….
      If you charge it for at least 10 times!!

      I hate myself for spending that much money for a crappy phone like s6!! Should have chosen s5 instead!
