While it’s not the newest phone on the block, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is still probably your best bet when it comes to buying a smart device. This is especially true if you are a dedicated Android user. But why is the Samsung Galaxy S6 the best option? Glad you asked. Here is a list of some of the greatest features of the Samsung Galaxy S6, available now at iiNet.
1. It still looks amazing
Samsung certainly made a good first impression with the Galaxy S6, as critics from sites and publications large and small marveled at its aesthetics. Samsung ditched the chunky plastic body of previous versions and instead opted for a sleek, stylish, attractive metal and glass build that is visually stunning. They also bucked the trend of companies following the theory that bigger is always better by keeping the screen size at 5.1 inches, which still dwarfs some competitors. Great to look at and easy to use – what more do you need?
2. The camera is killer
Samsung made a concerted effort to improve its camera to stand against iPhone 6, and it shows. The Galaxy S6’s photo snapping abilities are incredible, and the feature is easy to use. A quick double-tap of the home button pulls up the camera interface. The camera itself is 16 megapixels and has an improved lens from the former Galaxy S5. Users that often find themselves left with blurry shots will appreciate the optical image stabilization and automatic high dynamic range (HDR) capabilities.
3. Have it your way
This is more of a tick in the win column for Android, as the operating system provides loads of options for customization. Digging deeper into the Samsung Galaxy S6 sees a simpler user interface that will help you get the most out of Android 5.0 Lollipop. Addressing complaints from previous editions, Samsung has made it much easier to set up the phone according to your specific needs and desires.
4. Samsung Pay could be here to stay
Mobile wallet technology has been a recent bone of contention for tech heads. Some think it is the wave of the future, while others are convinced it will never be accepted widely enough to be a convenient alternative to standard physical wallets. If you’re interested in checking out the possibilities of a mobile wallet, the Samsung Galaxy S6’s Samsung Pay system is what you’re after. The system’s magnetic secure transmission method of transmitting data is already accepted at many outlets, meaning you don’t have to wait for your favorite stores to get up to speed with special readers.
5. Leave your cords at home
Much like the aforementioned mobile payment technology, wireless charging is another relatively new technology that users are excited to try out. While some phones require the purchase of extra gear in order to utilise the feature, the Samsung Galaxy S6 isn’t one of them. The phone comes prepared to handle wireless charging, giving you more freedom when it comes to juicing up your battery.
