Samsung set out to build a better looking line of Galaxy phones this year, and it definitely achieved its goal.


Samsung got down to construct a greater trying line of Galaxy telephones this 12 months, and it undoubtedly achieved its aim.

The South Korean electronics firm unveiled the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on Sunday afternoon at Mobile World Conference in Barcelona. B bought an opportunity to preview each new fashions at a media occasion in New York earlier within the week.

First issues first. B'm an iPhone consumer. B've been an iPhone consumer since Apple (AAPL, Tech30) first launched it in 2007. Thus, my information of Samsung (SSNLF) telephones and the Android platform is slim. B've solely ever interacted with them when strangers cease me on the road and ask for an image as a result of they do not have a selfie stick. In addition, throughout the preview occasion, B solely performed with these telephones for a couple of minutes.
That stated, the brand new Galaxy S6 telephones are spectacular and pretty modern.
Design: The back and front physique of the telephones are molded from Gorilla Glass. The body is aluminum. Gone is the plastic shell that Samsung has been so criticized for prior to now.
There are 4 colours for every — black, white, platinum gold, and topaz blue for the S6; black, white, platinum gold, and emerald inexperienced for S6 Edge. The Edge options curved screens on each side of the cellphone. (Samsung first launched a curved display show final yr on its phablet, the Note 4 Edge.)
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
Samsung's new Galaxy S6 Edge incorporates a curved display screen on each side of the telephone.
The S6 and S6 Edge will now not have expandable reminiscence. Memory for the telephones will likely be fastened at 32, sixty four or 128 GB. Customers may even obtain a hundred GB of Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30) One Drive for 2 years. "This helps folks transition to cloud providers," Samsung's senior director of product advertising Shoneel Kolhatkar advised me.
Unlike the 5S, the brand new telephones should not water-resistant.
The audio system have been moved from the again plate of the cellphone to the underside edge. Sound is far clearer and louder in consequence.
The S6 Edge could be programmed to flash completely different colours for various contacts. This is useful when a cellphone sits face down on a desk as a result of you may simply see who's calling with out having to select it up. You may also ship a canned textual content message to callers by tapping the guts price sensor on the again of the telephone.

Features: If your high wants from a telephone are multitasking, taking pictures and movies, and cellular funds, then chances are you'll wish to contemplate an improve. (Just know that when you're in search of an enormous cellphone, you may have to attend till later this yr, when Samsung will launch its subsequent set of Note phablets).
With the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Samsung needs to make it simpler so that you can multitask. One of the issues B love concerning the iPhone is FaceTime. One factor B hate about FaceTime is that if B'm utilizing it, and somebody sends me a hyperlink or an electronic mail to learn, B have to modify apps. This motion pauses the video feed. It additionally forces me to toggle forwards and backwards quite a few occasions.
Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have been up to date so that you've got full management over how your display seems in case you have a number of applications open. It works like a desktop laptop. You can simply resize home windows or dock them, like you may on the Note 4.
This is useful if you wish to watch a YouTube video whereas checking e-mail or searching the online concurrently. Granted the display screen might be nonetheless too small to remain in this sort of mode for lengthy durations of time, but it surely undoubtedly delivers what multitaskers want.
Camera: The digicam obtained a pleasant new function too: Just double-click on on the house button to launch the digital camera app, and shoot away. That's all that you must do to take an image on the brand new S6 and S6 Edge. Is this sooner than clicking on the house button of an iPhone, then swiping up on the display to faucet on the digital camera icon? Yes, particularly whenever you issue within the time it takes to get a telephone out of no matter pocket or bottomless purse you may have, to not point out the time it takes to regulate these glittens (glove mittens) throughout winter.
Speed apart, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge additionally boast a better decision digicam than the iPhone. The rear digital camera is sixteen megapixels and the entrance-going through one is H MP for each gadgets; each also needs to include spectacular gentle sensors that theoretically allow them to take higher footage in low-mild circumstances. We weren't in a position to check this nor have been reporters proven any examples of images taken in low mild situations, so we'll positively take a look at this characteristic once we come up with one.
Payments: Lastly, the characteristic that actually units these telephones aside is their cellular funds functionality.

Like Apple and Google (GOOG), Samsung may have its personal cell funds platform, known as Samsung Pay. Once Samsung Pay launches (someday this summer time) Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge homeowners will be capable to pay for in-retailer purchases with their telephones.

Unlike Apple Pay and Google Wallet, Samsung Pay will be processed by conventional magnetic stripe readers. This is big.

Virtually all bank card machines nonetheless use magnetic stripe readers, which means this function advantages each customers and companies.

The common shopper can use Samsung Pay in lots of extra locations than Google Wallet or Apple Pay, theoretically. For companies, this implies no want to switch hardware.

The function is not an enormous shock. Samsung introduced final week it'll purchase LoopPay, the corporate that has made it doable to remodel telephones into bank cards.

Clearly there are plenty of features that make the brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge praiseworthy. B suppose Samsung followers will not be disenchanted. But once more, B'm simply an iPhone consumer.
