  • Samsung Galaxy S6

    With a metal body and a new focus, Samsung’s Galaxy S6 is designed to make up for ground lost to competitors in the past year or two. The company has focused its efforts on giving end-users the experience they now demand from flagship phones, and if that means sacrificing features such as a removable battery and expandable storage, then so be it. Luckily, performance is phenomenal, and so is the camera. Battery life is strong and the screen is vibrant. Samsung’s software bloat has finally been reined in though fans of pure Android should look elsewhere. The Galaxy S6 is a winner and should make everyone very happy.

  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

    Samsung has rightly been accused of producing boring, generic phones in the past, but the Galaxy S6 Edge is a welcome departure. The metal frame, bold colors, and gorgeous curved glass front together make this phone a style statement the likes of which we haven’t seen in years. Performance is absolutely phenomenal and the quality of photos you can take with this phone’s camera is just staggering. The benefits of the curved-screen are largely cosmetic, and the few software tweaks aren’t enough to justify the price premium this phone commands over its flat twin, the Galaxy S6. Of course, most of what you’re really paying for is the “wow” factor, and in that respect the Galaxy S6 Edge is unmatched.

  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

    The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ appears to be nothing more than an elongated S6 Edge at first glance but dig a little deeper and you’ll find some nifty additions. The new additions include 4GB of RAM and Bluetooth 4.2 on the hardware front, for a bit more future-proofing. Samsung has also added Pro mode in the camera app which now lets you save pictures in RAW format as well as give you manual options to adjust your photo before you take the shot. The new Live Broadcast feature also lets you Livestream to your YouTube channel. The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a well-rounded phone but Samsung is charging a premium over the S6 Edge, which makes you think twice before taking the plunge.

  • Samsung Galaxy S7

    Samsung’s brand new Galaxy S7 is a subtle improvement over its predecessor on the outside, but a whole new beast on the inside. Powered by the Exynos 8890 SoC, this phone can blaze through absolutely anything you throw at it, with power to spare. The camera is absolutely amazing, especially in low light. This is a pragmatic phone, compared to its sibling the Galaxy S7 Edge, and is better value for money if you don’t want to show off. However, with competition at an all-time high, you can also get most of its features and functions for one third this price.
