The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are equipped with an incredibly vivid, bright and fast front and rear camera. The F1.9 lenses and high resolution sensors on both front (5MP) and rear (16MP) cameras provide the most superior image quality in a smartphone, even in the dark.

    1. hmm, day by day more phones companies are turning their phones into a non-removable battery. The non-removable battery allows samsung to build slimmer and more stylish phone. Like, usually, it will have a steel finish on the phone which makes it look sexy and elegant :)

  9. Actually i think the newest design on S6 is pretty good where there's a reason why they make it a non-removable battery smartphone. The battery now has a fast charging mode, u can just charge ur phone for like 10mins and can use it for 4 hours continuously.. Pretty sick right.. And now the phone is smaller so its much more mobile IMO. and for SD card slot, who actually still rely on external memory storage, u can always backup ur phone what.. Use internal memory the phone will run faster lehhh.

  11. I’m happy to hear that Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge launched soon, but the price is impossible that low. As I known so far it should be around RM3k. Actually I’m quite interested for both S6 and S6 Edge new characteristic and design. It also quite impressive!!I was wondering if the specification is good enough compare to nowadays smartphones.

  12. what i think from my own opinion is that a non removable battery would be better cuz can avoid ppl from opening the phone easily hence the non removable battery it also helps make the phone less likely to break or damaged
    i always drop my phone then the cover and battery flies out and i have to pick it up as if money fell from the sky LOL
    when that happens my phone will need to reboot again and take time lerrr

    ReplyDelete
  13. well what i want to know is what happens when the battery degrades and how i wanna change it
    it'll only be harder to change the battery and it sounds troublesome going to the service centres just to change a battery
    when i want to travel i prefer carrying a spare battery as it is thinner and lighter compare to bigass power banks and bulky

    1. noo you got it wrong, samsung is really rather helping us instead of making our lives more harder.. you mentioned spare battery right? have you thought about it being not suitable to your phone? well a lot of time it is not!, so really would you rather go to the service centre for a change of battery instead of going to the shop for a new phone, because your old phone got fried (electrically)

  14. I’m not agree many people said that the design is similar to iphone one. For iphone spec is still the best, I love the apple’s new custom ISP (Image Signal Processor).It’s can capture within 1.1 seconds now.

  15. So far I had checked out the phone spec everything is good but non-removable battery is troublesome. It makes me feel disappointed when I had found out this problem.

  16. Honestly to say that most people like to spend for their money to try latest stuff and without think about it. After using it, dissatisfaction starts to pop out.

    As u might knw S6 non-removable battery now is 2550mAh which supports Powermat and Qi for both wireless and wired supercharging. Thats why their battery is longer lasting compared to the other non-removable battery in the market now. Check out my finding on the specs of both S6 and S6 edge which include the battery specs as well:

  18. can't wait to see how s6 works since it's non removable battery.. will it works better than previous models..

    ReplyDelete
  19. Battery problem? Look at iphone user still dint complaining anything. Battery now may have a fast charging mode which can shorter the duration of charging time and also Samsung also updated to the latest Android 5.0 lolipop OS which will be able to remove pre-installed app.

    1. Good to see that S6 doing a great job compare to previous galaxy series there are much a lot of upgrade in S6. Btw I like the larger phone storage and 3GB RAM, it’s so cool. This smartphone I’m still looking forward for more info and review. It’s worth to do more research about it.

  20. there are already so many smartphones that has a non-removable battery like htc and apple now only samsung gonna adapt this too late lol
    dont think there's problem with having a built in battery but if there's anything wrong with the phone u'll need to go back to the service centre to diagnosed
    now samsung is in competition with their rival
