When lounch android nougat on galaxy s6... Or not even any other cheap companies give ota of naugat on your cheapest devices... What the heck samsung
Despite all those negative disadvantages of the Galaxy S6, the first few positive features, that I noticed and I waited years for, when I went to the tech shop, are:
Â• Ability to view more camera modes without scrolling (but the opposite actually happened to the settings)
Â• Slow motion video recording in real-time and with sound! Finally‼ (one of Samsung's biggest improvements)
Â• Camera quick launcher (Sony's physical shutter button is something the GT-i8000 had and I really miss it. The camera quick launcher of the S6 with Lollipop (TouchWiz NatureUX V5) actually worked much better than the one from Marshmallow (TouchWiz NatureUX6) (I will state more details about that later)
Â• Flashlight torch shortcut from quick toggle settings | despite that part of the user interface was messed up on NatureUX 5 and fixed with NatureUX 6, a flashlight shortcut was something iOS 7 had in it's new control center, which could be called by sliding up from the bottom of the screen. The flashlight could be altered even while the camera is running, while that was not possible on iOS. For the S6 (and S7 with Marshmallow pre-installed), the torch shortcut will be blocked while the camera is running. This makes it impossible to alter the flashlight for burst shots and DURlNG video recording. Actually, Sony's HOMANi camera user interface offers the torch setting during video recording. HTC also can do that.
Take an example from the Sony HandyCam FDR-AX33p (or AXP33), where some camera settings can be adjusted during video recording. Some settings such as resolution, framerate and bitrate can not be altered during video recording. It would be good, if it could be adjusted during video recording, but apply automatically for the next time, and the ability to discard those changes before the video recording has ended.
Since Android Marshmallow for Samsung phones (the HTC One M9 also had that for Lollipop, like Nokia 108 and Samsung Omnia i8000 too): the pause/record button could be pressed without any delay. You could press it as many times as you can press the iPhone's shutter key (only if exposure time is short enough) per second, and it would also react.
The Galaxy S7 also could preserve close to zero shutter lag. But as far as I know, to achieve that, the camera application needs to be excluded from all power saving procedures. The camera application should not be affected by power saving anyways, and only supported MultiWindow on the Note 4, where that glorious legacy mulWin tray was available, which had many advantages over the new system since S6. But since Android Marshmallow on S6, pressing the multi window icon on the recnet task switcher (fortunately no longer limited to 14/16 applications, but since Marshmellow affected by the rotation of the background app, which can actually be locked by tapping and holding the screen), does not cause that application to be added to the running application, but a completely new multi window session will be started.
Additionally, the Galaxy S7 will disable zero shutter lag, if the battery temperature thereshold (probably 25 degrees of celsius.).
3742, 10 Jan 2017There is no such thins as fakes, as those who make the fakes cannot use the actual logo & ... moreNot true, there ARE fake Samsung devices with SAMSUNG branding. My friend bought S3 replica, from outside exacty the same as the real S3 (with SAMSUNG logo), inside MTK processor, 256MB RAM, 128MB ROM.
TheWeepingCorpse, 13 Jan 2017Quote "RAM is nothing to do with memory" RAM = Random-access MEMORY.I'm sure what he is going to say is memory for storage
Guys how's the battery timing of s6? And overall is it a good phone to buy or should i wait for A3 2017?
Lee, 11 Jan 2017Very disappointed to now find out after the purchase of the Samsung 6 that we cannot have an S... moreRAM is nothing to do with memory. I have had a smartfone since SE P900 and don't ever recall after having 50 smartphones having out of RAM (memory) messages except My Nokia N97 and Nokia N8 displaying "Not enough memory to perform operation".
I think your storage is full not RAM.
Very disappointed to now find out after the purchase of the Samsung 6 that we cannot have an SD card or add memory. I have started to accumulate things I want to keep and now my phone is giving me all these stupid messages and telling me my ram is full etc. this should have been told by Samsung and optus who supplied the phone that this option was not available. I have had Samsung's for years and love them up until now. I have even converted people from Iphone to Samsung as they are so user friendly. I feel cheated this time.
galaxy, 23 Dec 2016can the battery of S6 be replaced in case of any fault? and is this conveniently done?Battery can be replace but it need certain tools to open the phone.
As battery is non removable, meaning not like those phone with just a battery only.
The battery come with wiring and need to open the phone in order to replace the battery.
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2016Clean your screen thoroughly, yank your battery and leave it out for a few minutes then put it... moreYou are not S6 user.
S6 has no card slot and battery is fixed, non removable.
vinay, 07 Jan 2017how long does it take to charge if fast charging is offFast charge mean when charging for 30 minutes, it can charge to 40% of the battery.
I always do fast charge in the morning, as i takes about 30 minutes to go out.
This give me an additional of 40% of battery life, never carry power bank.
Using the phone while on the power bank will cause the phone to heat up faster.
B, 10 Jan 2017Can you insert an external memory card into this phone?On the top click on the Specification.
As stated in the Memory: No card slot.
Lev, 08 Jan 2017I see a lot of posts with strange issues with "S6" like small memory, bad camera etc and that ... moreThere is no such thins as fakes, as those who make the fakes cannot use the actual logo & other wording as Samsung will sue for copyright issues.
The issue is because it cannot be used in certain countries.
This is why handset manufacturer have to make several models for S6.
For example: S6
Select the "Specifications" on top and look at the top of the specification.
There are listed on which model be able to use to which countries.
Another sign to look out for is your country Authority on handset, there is a logo sticker to said that this model can be used &or accepted.
If there is no logo sticker, the chances is that it is a Export sets.
Export sets meaning not for local use, as no local Authority logo sticker.
There is nothing to do with what you had mentioned.
(S6 should have Exynos 7420 Octa, not sure it there is a Snapdragon 820 version)
For S5 i do have 2 different models.
S5 with 16GB and another with 32GB.
Both are different specification, as what you mentioned.
When updating on one version, i did use the same update on the other version.
Then one of the phone gone into serious problem as the screen & keys unable to control.
Upon doing factory reset, then the problem go away.
Another confirmation i had is that i play the game.
The game is working without problem on one model.
The other model is giving problem cause the screen issue.
The game developer then told me the specification is not the same.
These 2 proof that different versions do have different specifications.
If as what you said about the fakes, then i bought from 2 different Telco(s).
This mean that one Telco sold me a fakes.
Telco(s) do not sell fakes.
Should i make a complaint to the Authority...
Some of the issue is to buy the model not for local use....for Export, the staff will said.
Sometime it is due to the apps that cause the issue.
There is a need to know how well these apps are written.
Do you know ANYONE can create a APP without any experience & knowledge.
