Samsung Galaxy S6

The most unique feature in the Samsung Galaxy S6 which makes it very different from its predecessors is the new complete astonishing redesign. There is no doubt that it is the most beautiful smartphone in the Galaxy S series right now, featuring a very thin premium dual-glass design reinforced be a metal frame and also sporting a 5.1" Super AMOLED QHD (1440 x 2560) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The Camera is 16MP and 5MP (selfies have never been better than this) on the rear and front respectively. 3GB of RAM, Exynos 7420 64-bit chipset, octa core processor with four 2.1GHz Cortex-A57's and four 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 cores, Mali-T760 MP8 GPU are the working forces behind the Galaxy S6 and you shouldn't be expecting any Android version later than the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop pre - loaded on it, right ? Huhh... I've almost mentioned all the features and specs ALL in this paragraph. Well, here you go with the full Specifications and features -

  1. This Samsung Galaxy s6 is just powerful. I had an opportunity to glance through it at slot, Mehn! The metal-like body, clear screen display and sleekness makes it one of the best smartphone ever. Samsung mobile is doing a great job. Lest I forget, the price I saw in Slot was N190k

    1. Hi Oge, Wow... It's good you've had the chance to glance through that beast. I can't dispute the fact that it's one of the best Smartphones ever. Seems the phone is more expensive in Slot's outlet than on their official website. Thanks for dropping by bro.
