I have been using the indian version of galaxy s6 black sapphire for a week now and so far it has been a great phone.
Internal storage of 25gb in 32gb model.
Screen looks gorgeous and Camera is superb. Even low light shots turn out to be great.
It felt a bit slippery initially though due to back glass but I got used to it now.
Overall it is a very fast device but occasionally slight stutter is there, but thats negligible.
Charging is super fast, from 30 to 100% in about 50 min.
Battery is neither too great nor too bad. I easily get 5 hrs sot with 20% brightness since I work indoors mostly. Standby is too good.I lose 2% overnight at most in power save mode.
I consider myself a moderate user and usually I come back in evening with battery around 50 to 60%.
I havent experienced overheating or battery drain problem so far.
Overall I would say if you want android phone, s6 is the best.
Anonymous, 23 May 2015Sony Z3 released on 3 Sept and iphone 6 on 9 Sept but with surprisingly similar design. Now Sa... moreWow. Next they will be making rectangular shaped phones with a few buttons around the frame and a big touch screen on the one side and a camera on the back. Who'd have thought, eh?
Can anyone on here actually post a personal review or is it above all of you?
You can all brand bash and moan as much as you like (wah wah wah I'm an adult who can't get over that some companies use other companies good idea) but as far as I'm concerned and in my own opinion the S6 is the best phone I've ever had and used. I've sampled and owned a hell of a lot of phones over the years and FOR ME it is great. You can have and are entitled to your own opinions but jesus I swear some of you don't actually have lives that these phones fit into. You all sound like you sit in your mother's basements running benchmark tests. Not everyone is a power user. Not everyone needs *insert petty hardware/software feature here*. Samsung identified that people like an eye popping screen, a quick SoC, premium materials and a particular layout (because hey that's smartphone evolution for you!) and as far as I'M concerned (wow my own opinion) they delivered. It's like watching a bunch of children argue over which is the best superhero...
Rahul, 23 May 2015Guys please get your basics right if you have haven't used Samsung phones just don't criticize... moreI can understand that you are defending Samsung fair enough but to claim you know better than everyone else because you work with phones is a bit narrow minded. I to have used the all the galaxy s line so I think my opinion would be as valid as yours. I work with computers does that make my opinion better than everyone else's when dealing in hardware. No it doesn't.
Guys please get your basics right if you have haven't used Samsung phones just don't criticize it if you haven't used S5 you wouldn't say it was full of gimmicks i have haves all galaxy S series phone currently using S5 & S6 s5 was a good phone still a very nice phone i know it because its my Work to deal in phones so i know it better if you don't know anything about Samsung please don't talk rubbish without getting your basics right

Using your logic all the smartphones out there is a copy of IBM Simon(the first smartphones). Know your facts.
[deleted post]Well like you said it's your opinion not mine. HTC one m9 is to much like the previous models and you can't really see a difference. To top that up the M8 has a more reliable Qualcomm processor with the SD 801 than the overheating SD 810. I would prefer to go with the M8 over the M9 any day.

Des... morein short, all phones are copy MOTOROLA. because...
Motorola was the first company to produce a handheld mobile phone. On 3 April 1973 when Martin Cooper, a Motorola researcher and executive, made the first mobile telephone call from handheld subscriber equipment, placing a call to Dr. Joel S. Engel of Bell Labs.
Sam Cheong, 23 May 2015Can you give the actual proof that S6 is copying Sony and iPhone?Proof that Samsung Gamaly S6 copies sony and apple
Camera : Sony Sensor (sony and apple)
Design : metal design sandwiched on 2 glass (iphone 4 and sony xperia z2 and 3)
No expandable memory : iphone
Non removable battery : iphone and sony
Need I say more?
[deleted post]If you don't like the phone that's up to you. Then go buy another phone. I personally like the phone and think they have produced a great device but that's my opinion. and don't get calling me a fool how old are you 10...
Anyway don't bother to reply. I have more creative things to do than arguing with smartphone obsessed people without lifes.
Sam Cheong, 23 May 2015Can you give the actual proof that S6 is copying Sony and iPhone?Sony was using the glass design since xperia z. So originally the glass design started with Sony. 1-0
iphone 6's round design with stripes was also original, so originally the slim rounder corners design was apples 2-0
Dont ask stupid questions

Is Samsung forcing you to purchase its products? if you don't like the phone don't buy it, it's that simple really. No need to be calling us fools!!! If they are getting richer it's only because people are buying their products. Same could of been said about all manufacturers.
AnonD-365011, 23 May 2015Do you mean buy a S6 back case to cover it so that the protruding camera won't look that obvio... moreTo stop the protruding camera they would of needed to make the s6 thicker. The cameras on iPhone 6 and s6 are only protruding because how thin both the phones are.
Sam Cheong, 23 May 2015Can you give the actual proof that S6 is copying Sony and iPhone?Sony Z3 released on 3 Sept and iphone 6 on 9 Sept but with surprisingly similar design. Now Samsung join that design too. Especially if you compare the metal chasis on all three phones. I don't think they copied it but i assume it as a trend. Beside, the rounded edge instead of flat is more comfortable to the hand.
