File this one under “What would journalists do if they could not review hardware and had to focus attention only on the software used in a computer?” Still, Zach Epstein tries.
I have been pretty hard on Samsung over the past few years, but let’s be honest: the company deserved it. Time and time again, we’ve seen Samsung launch fantastic flagship smartphones that are class leaders in almost every key area. Samsung’s mobile displays are the best in the world, many of its software additions have mass appeal, and its phones are always among the best available when it comes to performance.
But where design, build quality and materials are concerned, Samsung has always been at the bottom of the pile.
BGR folks need to get out more. There are many, many crummy Android phones out there that make Samsung’s Galaxy class look positively Apple-like.
The absence of a removable battery, a memory card slot and waterproofing certainly doesn’t seem to be slowing Apple’s iPhone lineup down… But there is one thing I can guarantee: Whichever Android phone one might choose over the Galaxy S6, it won’t be as powerful, the display won’t be as stunning, and the design won’t be as sleek.
Except the iPhone 6 has a more powerful CPU, the Galaxy S6 looks exactly like an iPhone 6, but the Samsung display is good for AMOLED fans.
