The wait is over! Samsung Canada has launched the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge which is now available in black sapphire, white pearl, and gold platinum* styles. If you got in the #S6Lineup or pre-ordered your device through your carrier you will soon have the sleek and powerful Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge in the palm of your hand.
I’ve been playing with the Galaxy S6 over the last week, mostly for taking photos and using apps which is the main extent of my smartphone usage. The biggest feature I noticed was the screen (5.1″ Quad HD Super AMOLED® display) and its intensity. Colours popped and were much more bold than on other devices. The auto HDR was also helpful for capturing vivid scenes:
I used Quick Launch exclusively, calling up the camera without unlocking the phone and ready to shoot in under 0.7 seconds. The all-new, front-facing 5MP camera also comes with the world’s first, real-time, shadow-reduced (HDR) selective focus, so even in low light you can take clearer, brighter pictures.
The power was great too. I started writing when the battery was at 42% and in 9 minutes it has charged up to 50% (even while I was editing and pulling photos off to include in this post). I have also been using Smart Manager to check in on the battery status, storage, RAM, and security at a glance.
