Great display and sound with bad battery backup
pintu65430 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I've had my S6 for about 1year 4months. Still very fast, no noticeable slow down at all.
I haven't gotten Marshmallow yet, but it can only come with improvements such as doze, which will increase the battery life (which is dreadful). On the topic of battery life, its pretty bad, but fast charging makes up for it imo.

Great phone,Not so great battery
omar98 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
The phone is great in every single aspect, including touchwiz which hasn't caused any lags thankfully!yet I still have my own complaints.Very high unexplained ram usage.pretty weird for a 3gb ram phone. Battery life could have been better,hoping updates could fix this

Finally a good Galaxy s phone
E34V8 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Near perfect phone, but not quite. Battery could be bigger. TouchWiz needs more trimming down. The screen is the best mobile screen. Amazing sharpness and detail (not like the 326ppi ones). Excellent colour calibration and white balance. The camera is incredible. Finally Samsung made a good Galaxy S phone, since the S2.

the best from samsung
willywanta has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
A very lovely phone from Samsung. Finally samsung managed to build a true flagship phone. Build quality = superb.
Screen = don't ask, you have to see it yourself.
Processor and s**t = i don't care.
UI = i like touchwiz. I can't see why many people despise it.
Customisability = it's Android. And you get Samsung theme shop!
Camera = best. My favorite, that wide angle front camera!!!! Selfies can't get any better.
Battery = meh. But fast charging really step up the game.
No micro sd card slot = no problem

Best flagship from Samsung
Fialho has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
This is a great phone for everyday usage as well as for any type of user.
The screen is great for either games and videos, the camera is feature rich and great at any situation.
The UI has been refined into a much smoother one, while keeping many features that I value on Samsung phones.

Good job, Sammy :)

Anybody can tell you how nice this phone feels in the hand, but you have to touch it and that sensation will stay in your mind for the rest of the day.
Amazing display. Very bright, you can surf the internet in direct sunlight without any problems. Has the highest pixel density display, so the images come really sharp and natural looking.
Then comes the camera. This beats any other phone camera available on the market. Period.
Videos can be taken in slow motion and that can be a lot of fun.
Then you just double tap the home button and the cam opens in like half a second, no matter what you were doing, like playing a game or just took it from the pocket in sleep mode.
The touch wizz got slimmer. No lag at all. Really. Stories.
Battery life is OK, not amazing, but it charges like 2% per minute with the fast charger you get in the box. Then there is wireless charging, working even with a thick case on it. This one is pretty slow, but incredibly convenient as you can just keep the phone on the pad.
I have the 32 GB of memory, enough for my needs, considering it comes with 110 g for free on ONE DRIVE, Microsoft.
I got the "black sapphire" one, its black most of the time, but turns into a splendid blue when its sunny. My wife has the gold version and that turns silver when not in direct sunlight.
I payed 700 euro for it, kind of pricey if you ask me, but if you decide to go for it, you will feel like you bought the best the market has to offer you today.

A leap forward, but TouchWiz still abides
Eclectech has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The phone is handsome and well made. It's slippery, thanks to the glass all around and it is a fingerprint magnet, which sours things a bit. You're going to be compelled to buy a case, which makes you wonder why Samsung opted to use a glass back in the first place.
There are so many settings, which is awesome for a power user. There is no uniformity to where you find all those settings which will prove cumbersome, even to the power user.
There aren't many theme options (and most of the themes are ugly). There's likely plenty of software you'll want to uninstall, disable or hide (e.g. - Briefing).
Ringtones and speaker quality are pretty terrible, if compared to the HTC One M7, M8 or M9. There are some other quirks about the software that are a bit jarring too (e.g. - notifications halt music coming from Spotify/Tidal/Pandora | 2nd e.g. - Samsung nags you about the volume being too high when bluetoothing to another device | 3rd e.g. - the all apps icon can't be moved...it's just stuck on the right - whose idea was that? | 4th e.g - when you install new apps, you have to constantly click 'A-Z' to get things to sort alphabetically).
Battery life is a bit disappointing for a 2015 phone - Not only did they make this year's Galaxy battery smaller (2800Mah for the GS5 vs. 2550Mah for the GS6), but they sealed it up too. As a consolation prize, charging time is quick ... yeah -_- .
For great pictures, this is the phone. Really impressed with the photos. The screen display is nice...

Real Galaxy S6 review
Clars123 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
This is my third phone from the Galaxy S series..and the S6 doesn't disappoint(much).I really love the new design among other things as well as the theming options.As a user of Sony,Samsung and Apple devices I have to say that this is a massive step-up(and a little step back) for Samsung and I'm really looking forward to this year's Galaxy Note.

Samsung Galaxy S6 User!
Tripax has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Overall, I can only say good S6 and beautiful, as my analysis suggests, it works very well at all and does what it promises, the battery could be a bit stronger, radio was to bring, and battery should be removable , since the card is not possible to use SD Card, but sufficient 32GB.

Not quite up to the hype!
sharks has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Samsung copied the iPhone as closely as they could with this version and the S7 is bound to make it even more iPhone-like. However, TouchWiz still lags sometimes and the lack of removable battery and no SD card make this a weak contender compared to other flagships like the G4.

Best phone I have ever had
except the battery and no MicroSD Card slot
It is having multiple advance features and offers more user friendly interface. Camera is fantastic and the display is awesome. The phone is very light which makes it very easy to carry.
A decent phone
sljivan has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
It is my second android phone. I got used to android. It is OK. What I miss are high quality apps from WP. Apps in microsoft store are much better - Visualy, and they work better with the phone. Even my bank apps, that is not some low end app, is better for WP.
But all this, has nothing to do with the phone itself.
Phone is nice. It feels decent, and works decent. I don't mind having it, even though it doesn't blow my mind.
Terrible. More trouble than it's worth.
lucky.thirteen has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I had the Galaxy s4 before this and loved it. Never had an issue with it. The s6, on the other hand, has been nothing but trouble. I've had to replace it at least 4 times due to "manufacturer defect". The first time was because it kept freezing whenever I would open and use certain apps. The second time was because it would constantly tell me I had no 4G service when I knew I was in an area that I always had service and would constantly disconnect from WiFi for no reason. The third time was because it would freeze up randomly and restart itself. The fourth time was because the battery would go down ridiculously fast even in power saver mode and I couldn't use it while it was charging or the battery would continue to go down. Even though I was always conscious of not overcharging it and would rarely leave it on the charger past 100% or overnight (only did a few times on accident). I'm sure my cell phone carrier keeps giving me refurbished replacements that aren't actually fully fixed. Also all my pictures tend to be way lower quality than I expected of this phone especially when using zoom. This phone has been nothing but frustration for me. I constantly have issues with people not being able to hear me clearly on calls. However, I will say that I have dropped it many times and have never even scratched my screen and I have a very simple case on it.
Awesome phone but could improve in battery life.
frank_android has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Overall awesome phone from Samsung. I got this device recently in 2017 and still performs extremely well and better than most midrangers for an outdated flagship. Only thing of concern is the low battery life which can get me through a day barely with moderate usage.
Awesome phone, but poor battery life
renjithr712 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Phone is great in my opinion. And ever after using it for more than one year and two months, it gets the job done. I am a heavy user and the only thing I didn't like is the battery back up. Waiting for the nougat update.
Samsung Galaxy s6 is exceptionally great
yusu123 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
the samsung galaxy s6 is one of the best phons on the market Like any smartphone, the Galaxy S6 isn’t without compromise,its battery life is seriously disappointing, and it’s an open question how well the sometimes shaky software will age over time. But the Galaxy S6 remains one of the best Android phones you can buy today and with one possible exception, it’s probably the best Samsung smartphone in history.

Awesome phone, wonderful build quality, 2k display, great camera, the UI speed really are really good, but there messed it up with one thing, the battery!
A Flagship with 2.550 mAh battery capacity, Samsung, WTF?
abhishekahuja238 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Samsung Galaxy S6 is one of the most amazing smartphone. It is having multiple advance features and offers more user friendly interface. Camera is fantastic and the display is awesome. The phone is very light which makes it very easy to carry.
CMON DUDE IT'S a FLAGSHIP
ad_sir has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
the battery life is not as good and truly ram usage is always above 59% but its performance is of a beast.
After the price drop its an easy decision. It feels great in hands awesome display. Future proof(on the grounds of compatibility with gearVR)its light;charging speed is just awesome but what blows my mind is the camera
Well Designed Smartphone

Everything is perfect except the battery and no MicroSD Card slot. The battery only last 4-10 hours on Heavy and regular usage. Probably because the leaked RAM, hope samsung fix it in marshmallow update.
The Smartphone Beast
mhf20 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Ok so its been 5 months since im using this phone and I can say that this is the best smartphone you can get right now.It gives you some world -class perfomance,Stunning Visuals,Great Multitasking,The worlds best camera performance In short it gives amazing all round performance.The only disadvantage is the battery life because its only 2550 mah which is not ideal for a QHD Phone.But the fast charger helps me overcome this problem.I love playing High-end games on this phone like MC5, Asphalt 8 ,Fifa 16 as it handles them quite easily and makes gameplay smoother.The UI os well polished and gives you a silk smooth performance.Its design is quite impressive and it offers you premium build quality.So the Verdict is that get this phone as soon as you can or you'll regret it.
Best Phone I've Had!
JoshuaSD has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
If you're looking for a phone that's new and and gets the job done, the Samsung Galaxy s6 is the best for you. With a new look and new interphase, Samsung has made a phone that stands out from the rest. The s6 shows that this company can still compete with the Apple iPhone line.
