Samsung Galaxy S6

Samsung's latest smartphone, the Galaxy S6 Edge, has a unique display that curves over both edges of the phone. If you don't want that edge display, the Galaxy S6 has the same features in a more classic design. It's made entirely out of metal and glass, and has a 5.1" Quad HD Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2560x1440 and 577 pixels per inch. It runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop).

One convenient update from previous Samsung phone models is the new fingerprint sensor that is now included in the phone's home button. This works much more like Apple's Touch ID, and you only need to rest your finger on it instead of swiping.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has a 16MP camera, takes Auto HDR pictures, and can capture 4K video. It's also faster to activate the camera, at just 0.7 seconds. The selfie camera on the front is 5MP and has a wider 120 degree angle.

Samsung's Galaxy S6 comes equipped with a 2550 mAh battery that is capable of "fast charging," which will charge your battery from 0 to 50% in just 30 minutes. It also has wireless charging built-in.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has a 64-bit, octa-core processor. It no longer features an SD card slot, but internal storage options range from 32GB to 128GB. It comes in there color options -- Black Sapphire, White Pearl, and Gold Platinum. It costs $199.99 with a 2 year contract, or $699.99 without a contract.
