An outstanding flagship phone with a great camera

Key features:
  • 5.1-inch, 2,560 x 1,440 AMOLED screen
  • 16-megapixel camera with OIS
  • 2,550mAh battery
Samsung has finally decided to make a flagship smartphone that looks the part. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is far prettier than its older brothers, featuring metal sides and a glass rear instead of that pesky plastic. It’s comfortable to hold too, and the fingerprint scanner on the back has been much-improved. However, water resistance, the removable battery and microSD slot have been chucked out of the window.
The screen is a 5.1-inch, 2,560 x 1,440 AMOLED panel, which is bright and offers vivid colours and exceptional contrast. It’s one of the most impressive on the market. The 16-megapixel main camera with OIS and 5-megapixel front-facing camera are designed to be good in all light conditions but are especially great in low light.
Under the hood are the Samsung-designed octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset and 3GB of RAM. The 2,800mAh battery of the S5 has been replaced with a smaller 2,550mAh one that supports wireless charging. Android 5.0 Lollipop runs the show, though the latest version of TouchWiz is the best we’ve seen.
