Samsung s6 has got one of the smallest design issues with a stunning 5.1 in Super AMOLED display. With a resolution of 2,560×1,440, the phone has the highest pixel density (577ppi) of any handset, beating phones like the LG G3, which has the same resolution and a larger 5.5in screen.

Samsung phones are known for their stunning screens, the galaxy s6 AMOLED displays a color contrast which is just straight to the point. In fact, screen brightness is a more contentious issue, as Samsung claims the screen can reach as high as 600cd/m2, which is higher than even most LCD screens are capable of producing.

Samsung Galaxy s6 Software

The Samsung Galaxy s6 is powered by Android 6.0 for its current flagship smartphones and includes features like Google’s clever Now on Tap, which scans whatever’s on your phone’s screen and then provides useful additional information. Let’s say you can scan an email asking if you’d like to go and see a film that night and Now on Tap will automatically find the nearest screenings.

There’s also permission system that limits other users from accessing specific apps such as camera once the app is still running.

It doesn’t matter if your Samsung Galaxy is running Android 5.0 or 6.0, most of the mobile Apps can be located from the play store or Galaxy store. Some Apps such as WhatsApp and Skype come with placeholder apps installed on the device which will link you up to the real Apps on Google Play store.

Samsung Galaxy s6 Battery life

When it comes to this simple but most important spec, the Samsung Galaxy is powered by 2,550mAh which is slightly less compared its predecessors the Galaxy s5.

Unfortunately, the battery is also non-removable which was covered by introducing wireless charging for extra convenience. There’s also a fast charging mode, with 10 minutes on the mains providing four hours of use.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Performance Review

The phone runs a brand new 64-bit Samsung Exynos 7420 CPU inside which is snappy at some point. As compared to its predecessor, the s5, the phone apps load very fast without any complaint of lags or delay. This can be appreciated to its processor’s 14nm fabrication process, which means it will run cooler and use less power than the S5’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip.

Samsung Galaxy s6 Camera Review

The 16 Mega Pixel in the Samsung Galaxy s6 is just the same as that in the s6 Edge though with a slightly different twist. There’s a brighter f/1.9 aperture lens, which Samsung claims lets in 34% more light than the f/2.2 lens on the S5.

There’s also Optical Image Stabilisation to reduce blur in low-light shooting and the double tap of the home button/fingerprint sensor will automatically fire up the camera in less than 0.7ms making sure you don’t miss out on any shoots.

Samsung Galaxy s6: Storage

The Samsung Galaxy s6 doesn’t provide a slot for the microSD card, this may seem unfortunate but we may understand why. Without the slot, Samsung can make the phone a more sturdy product, but it also means you don’t need a cheap flap to cover it up on the outside.

The phone comes with 32GB, 64GB and 128GB versions available, you should be able to find the version that matches your storage requirements.

A brand new Samsung s6 in Uganda will cost you $600 which is approximately UGx. 2,000,000 in town or Jumia. However, you can also get a second-hand version on sites such as OLX. Please read these buyers guide on buying used smartphones in Uganda before investing your hard earned cash.

Final Verdict.

It’s no question that Samsung Galaxy s6 is a better phone in terms of features and build than the original s5. There is a lot you should love about this device, however, its only up-down is the battery which was also compensated by the inbuilt wireless charging that uses fast charging technology
