If there is one event we can’t miss, it’s the yearly announcement of Samsung’s flagship line-up. Of course, we are talking about the Samsung Galaxy line, a series of devices that has helped shape the industry, whether we like it or not.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 has been announced and we have given it a very hard look. Is it worth all the hype it created? Let’s take a look at it and find out. It’s all but guaranteed to be one of this year’s best-selling smartphones, so we are sure you want to learn more about it.

So, we have all the specs and hardware this high-end smartphone deserves. The screen is gorgeous, battery life should be fair (probably not amazing), the device offers ample storage and performance is top notch. What really makes the Samsung Galaxy S6 different?
Samsung has gone back to the drawing board and they have adopted an improved design language for the Galaxy S6 (and Galaxy S6 Edge). This phone is made of improved materials, which include mostly metal and glass. This means they have ditched their cheap plastic construction, and that is something you can really feel when you hold this phone.
Aside from the materials, the phone actually looks very similar to what other Samsung Galaxy S smartphones look like. It has its round edges and that iconic look we all know and love (or hate).
You can be sure we will be taking a closer look at the phone when the time for a review comes. The phone is launching in April 10th (in select markets), so you can expect a review relatively soon. By the way, pricing is still not revealed, but expect to pay your regular $600+ high-end price point.
