Tech Storm tells us if the new Samsung Galaxy series will make a dent in Apple
Samsung is stealing the headlines once again with the launch of its latest Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
This time around, Samsung has redesigned every aspect of the S6 and S6 Edge, from the gorgeous outer shell to the amazing camera. Apple could learn a thing or two from Samsung about innovation.
Haters are going to hate and Apple fan boys are just going to cry foul over this article. But before you decide which team to be on, here are some hard facts as to why the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are clearly better.
Sleek Eye Candy
On the inside, both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have the same internal infrastructure. The distinctive difference is clearly reflected in the S6 Edge’s dual curved screen.
Both models come with a large 5.1” Super AMOLED screen, which translates to a more vivid and vibrant display. Weighing at just 138g (S6) and 132g (S6 Edge) they do not feel too heavy or plastic and will fit comfortably even if you have smaller hands.
The S6 and S6 Edge will first be available in three standard colours: Black Sapphire, White Pearl and Gold Platinum. The fourth colour is model-specific – the S6 will also come in Blue Topaz and the S6 Edge also in Green Emerald – and will be launched at a later date, undisclosed as yet.
With such eye-catching colours and designs to match any lifestyle, the S6 and S6 Edge are all set to be the next must-
Two Highly-Effective Cameras
Samsung recognises that we rely on our smartphones’ cameras more than ever before, and has equipped the new S6 and S6 Edge with not one but two amazing cameras. Both models are fitted with a 16MP rear camera that comes with an LED flash and a 5MP front camera.
With f1.9 aperture lens on both cameras, coupled with Smart Optical Image Stabilisation and IR Detect White Balance, expect superior quality images taken all the time and at any time, even in dim light. Taking images at night or in a club will now no longer pose a problem!
To prove how awesome the camera really is, Samsung conducted an image test between the S6 and iPhone 6. Images and videos taken by the iPhone 6 failed terribly when compared side by side to those captured by the S6; it was really a huge difference in both colour intensity and clarity.
Samsung has also incorporated another nifty feature in the S6 and S6 Edge, named the Quick Launch Camera function. This gives the user direct access to the camera regardless of any screen he or she is on in less than a second, by simply double-tapping the Home button.
If you prefer inner beauty over outer beauty, the S6 and S6 Edge have definitely got that covered. Cutting-edge specifications for the S6 and S6 Edge include 4G LTE, 3GB RAM, internal memory 32/64/128GB, Octa-core processor, Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, Ultra Power Saving Mode, Download Booster and UHD video recording capabilities.
Do you really need any more reason?
Cool Additional Features
A really cool feature of the S6 and S6 Edge is that they have in-built wireless charging capability that works with most wireless charging pads that are currently in the market. No more searching for cables and replacing worn out ones when all you need to do now is to place the smartphone over the charging pad.
Did I mention that the battery now charges 1.5 times faster than the S5 and a quick 10-minute charge can provide up to four hours of usage? More juice, less time wasting!
