When you’re on the go and short on time, fear not – the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge feature the ability to fast charge your battery – letting you watch 2 hours of HD video from just 10 minutes charging. Isn’t that smart?

And with their built-in wireless charging capabilities, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge offer you all the convenience of charging without the need to plug in – ensuring you are always powered and ready for what’s next.


#2). Sharp, crystal clear metal and glass frame

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.


#6). Better and improved camera

With a launch time of just 0.7 seconds, you can capture more of your favourite moments, as they happen. And thanks to its Optical Image Stabilisation, fast tracking auto focus and bigger, f1.9 aperture for better low light results, every shot will be as amazing as the next.
