Tyrion Lannister, 10 Jul 2015Any comparison between iPhone and other android devices will be utter foolishness and meaningl... moreApple do that because smaller ram consume less battery. 1gb ram give their devices longer battery life. Most of their battery are less than 2000mah. This is also due to Apple supplies of mobile RAM at sufficient quantities and densities is quite constrained, especially at the quantities that Apple needs. Samsung put bigger ram simply because they could and they manufacture their own mobile DRAM. Samsung can control their DRAM chips supply unlike Apple. However, Samsung don't control their OS like Apple. If Samsung able to control Android OS like Google they too could optimized the performances of their Samsung Galaxy devices. That is why the only direct rival to Apple devices is the Google Nexus devices made by Google.
Samsung galaxy s6 and iphone 6, both are fastest phones atm on earth.
I find Samsung has the upper hand on Apple because, like everyone says apple can produce outstanding benchmark with just 1GB ram and Dual core processor (mainly they are charging for their software expertise), which is good for a company. However (this is for samsung haters specially) (Iam not a fan of Samsung or Apple)
Samsung may not be efficient to sync their software with their hardware but at least when they are charging more they are providing you that big quad core/octa core processor and high end GPU and 3GB+ rams (which we may not require but at least have that peace of mind that we have good hardware) as far as software is concerned, Touchwiz (samsung software) could be replaced with CyanogenMod (free OS for android devices - chech youtube on how to do it) which would run like Usain bolt with high end hardware.
Best phone out rite now, defenetly worth buying..far more better then iPhone...
I have to say I am liking this phone very much. I am coming from an LG G3.
The size and feel is more comfortable. The first real difference was in my car, i ansewerd the phone on speaker and the callers voice was extremely crisp, clear, so crisp and clear that it kind of startled me. On the LG I had to close the windows and turn the heater/Aircon off to hear the caller clearly.
The next thing that took me by surprise was the double power saver. As usual it was near the end of the day and I forgot to charge the night before. I was under 10% battery. I swithed to powersaver regular and it read 1.5 hours left, I still needed more so I switched to double saver and managed to get 4 hours out of it. Impressive. Even Scotty would have been in awe. I need more power scotty!!!
On double save the screen goes to black and white and you get min. icons.
I give it a 10/10
Any comparison between iPhone and other android devices will be utter foolishness and meaningless. To those who do, just one question, how Apple manages to score equal or more performance scores(benchmarks) with their 1.4GHz Cpu and 1GB of RAM?. They run all the iOS versions of top graphics games in the market. Smoothness and flawless UI of apple is worth mentioning. All android flagships in the market with more than 2Ghz quad-octa core cpu and 3gigs of RAM performs only up to iphone's mark, why? It is where Apple excels. They know the chemistry between hardware n software. I don't own an apple device by the way...And dont wanna compare the prices. it is up to those buy a smartphone
neha.amsal, 10 Jul 2015So u mean to say its useless to switch from s4 to s6? :/ :(I can't be useless. Come on. It is a very fluid, fast, well built phone. And very good camera, the best along with lg g4.
Has wireless charging, has good resilience. Simple Ui, not as good as Htc's, but good, efficient and simple.
I like htc and apples as looks, but for me this is the best package at the moment.
Hi guys! I have read pretty much all major reviews and one thing which is keeping me away from buying this phone is that it has low in call volume (as per reviews). I'm getting rid of my Xperia Z3 for the same reason and dont want to get stuck with something with a similar issue. Kindly help...
aadhi , 05 Jul 2015Not like others but u know it is Samsung.day by day usage making it slowerSo u mean to say its useless to switch from s4 to s6? :/ :(
You, basically have been the only one to hit this nail on its head. People should understand the fact that iOS itself is more efficient and still more powerful on small hardware size. Even in comparison to a 3gig ram android, the difference is still clear. I can proudly say my iphone 6 has been running for months and I haven't thought about turning it off, I run my game minimize it then come back to the same game 2days Lata and still find it in that same spot where I left it. I doubt the galaxy s6 can do that.
Best smartphone ever made... It is faster and good looking over iphone 6,htc one m9,lg g4. And specially with gorilla glass 4.. With a 2k resolution with 577 ppi.. Battery life is also very nice.. For browsing over 3g it is more than 10 hours.. And its sound quality is awesome.. And worlds fastest performence phone... Buy it..it will never make you unhappy Thanks samsung for such a good product.
S6 in India got the android 5.1.1 update yesterday night. I have upgraded my phone. I don't think memory leak has been fixed ,though it does not effect my phone.
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2015If ios is so great why Apple don't share it with other OEM? Oh, thats right, because Apple is ... moreThats the business strategy.. Apple has something "power" and "difference" that other companies have, so that is their power to have their influence in electronic business. Therefore they better keep their own power and unique.. Android is more "open" than ios. Its easier to use than ios (which for somebody ios is so restricted and limited), but i realize that the work of android is not so efficient as ios. Thats why with 3Gb of ram sometimes android is still heavier and laggy. Is different with ios with just only 1gb of ram but can run faster.. I dont hate any samsungs; i just imagine if someday android can be as faster as ios. Lol
So my Galaxy S5 has a 2700 mAp battery.
I go on ebay and find a 4800 once of same size.
My real world test shows it lasts almost twice as long as the original.
Imagine a third party battery of the same size but double the power!
Makes you wonder why Samsung doesn't include these batteries instead of the weaker one.
FYI - I opted for the 7700 one, though this one is twice as thick as the original Samsung one.
But I prefer the longer life.
Tam, 09 Jul 2015Yeah, the software itself makes the difference. Thats why apply is very awesome to make ios, s... moreIf ios is so great why Apple don't share it with other OEM? Oh, thats right, because Apple is greedy and patent everything and sue every company for anything that look like a fruit. Apple is no different than a selfish brat.
I'm impressed by the significant improvement in the build quality of this device. The Galaxy S6 feels like a solidly made phone, separating itself from its #S5 predecessor with the more flimsy "plasticky" feel.
It's obvious that Samsung has been coming under heavy fire to make a better looking and feeling device. I can honestly say the phone truly looks and feels good. There is a smoothness yet comfortable unbothered grip when you hold the device.
You can see the look of wealth and splendor from the glassy and glossy lines of the designs, extending along the sides and the back glass.
Without much testing, I can say the S6 runs pretty well. Very fast in the execution of tasks and moving from app to app. Nevertheless rest assured that your share of app crashes will however come as those are intrinsically just #Android.
Hats off to #Samsung on this device.

Sam Cheong, 09 Jul 2015To be honest, the battery draining problem that you have facing on S6 is not Samsung's problem... moreYeah, the software itself makes the difference. Thats why apply is very awesome to make ios, so efficient, fast, and effective that with only one Gb of Ram is enough to do all the job. Just hope someday android can make software that as light as ios.
Is Samsung Galaxy S6 Duos SM-G920FD model compatible with Wi-Fi calling? Anyone using this model who can check the settings for me?

Other Android OEM makers also facing this problem.
