It’s a well-crafted smartphone awesomely built with the mixture of glass and metal – just like the Apple’s iPhone 6 – and a sharp contrast to Samsung’s previous smartphones.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge is an all-metal and glass affair meaning that the company have ditched its trademark chromed plastic construction.

So with a curved metal band that surrounds the edges of the phone, which hold together a glass front and back, Samsung have gone down the “style over substance” route and put the phone in a shiny package.

#3). Improved fingerprint scanner

But its software-side enhancements build a case for Galaxy S6 as the benchmark for fingerprint authentication.

Even though it’s not a full-fledged password manager, Samsung’s finger scanner can securely store login credentials for use in the phone’s web browser.

Also, Galaxy S6 fingerprint scanner has added the ability to login to your favourite websites with just the touch of your finger.

#4). No more credit cards with Samsung Pay

Samsung has launched Samsung Pay, which allows users to pay for goods and services using a credit card swipe terminal. It is another step towards a world without credit cards!

The announcement of Samsung Pay at the press conference means the company wants to offer an Apple Pay competitor that will debut on the Galaxy S6 phones. So, look out for that!

#5). QHD Super AMOLED display, capacitive touchscreen

The 5.1″ screen has a quad HD resolution with a density of 577 pixels per inch (ppi), making it denser than the 432ppi Galaxy S5, 401ppi Apple iPhone 6 Plus– and 43 more pixels per inch than the 534ppi 5.5in LG G3.

The denser the screen the sharper the image, up to a point. Whether users will be able to see the difference is unknown, although quad HD is quickly becoming the new standard for smartphone and tablet screens.
