The S6 was released in 2015 but still looks good. It rocks a thin Gorilla Glass 4 and aluminum build. Its dimensions are 143.4 mm x 70.5 mm x 6.8 mm – you’d agree with us when we say it’s like paper.
Although its glass build makes it look rich, it collects a lot of fingerprints. You might not be a fan of this.
It’s not very big, its screen stretches 5.1 inches across. If you have larger hands, holding it might be hard. Not only is it small, but it’s light too. It weighs 138 grams and we’re fans of mobiles that don’t feel like feathers.
The S6 comes in 4 different shades. The Black Sapphire is the chicest. Our favourite is the Blue Topaz – you’ll catch the most attention.
There’s Super AMOLED on its front. It’s a panel that packs a punch. Considering its size, its resolution makes it pin-sharp. You’re getting a 1440 x 2560-pixel display.
Denting it would be hard, Gorilla Glass 4 is protecting its screen.
Here’s the deal:
There’s some serious bezel action going on. Phones back then weren’t big on infinity displays – its screen-to-body ratio is 70.7%.
Out of the box, it runs Android 5.0.2. Android 10 is around these days, which Android 5 is not as customizable or good-looking. The furthest you’ll be able to upgrade its systems to is Android 8.
Android powers via the Exynos 7420 chipset. It’s not beastly – even the more mid-range Snapdragon 670 beats it.
Moving through its systems would be like butter thanks to its RAM. You’re getting 3 GB of it. You can pick it up with either 32, 64, or 128 GB of space. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to expand its ROM. There is no microSD slot.
Unlike most flagships these days, the S6 has a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Since it’s paper-thin, it’s no surprise that its battery is small. It comes with a 2550 mAh unit. It’ll barely last a day. As you can imagine, its battery is nonremovable. To charge it, you’ll be using a micro USB port, which is considered dated these days.
A 15 W fast charger would have to be inserted. You can expect it to go from 0-100% in about an hour and a half. The icing on the cake is the fact that it has wireless charging capabilities.
Camera-wise, a single shooter is on its front and back. You’re met with a 16 MP wide lens on its rear. On its front, a 5 MP wide one is present. The pictures it takes are super vibrant. Its primary and selfie camera is great in low-light too. There’s an LED flash on its rear – it’s bright.
How much does it cost? You can pick it up for around Rs.30,000. The phone was discontinued, so you might have trouble finding it, though.
