Review: Samsung Galaxy S6 for AT&T
Samsung simply killed it with the Galaxy S6. It may not have the raw sex appeal of its curvy brother, but the S6 offers an experience that is almost entirely the same. The Galaxy S6 is well designed and well made, with quality materials. The phone is a winner in most respects.
The metal and glass design lends a premium feel to the S6 not previously available from Samsung's lineup. The phone is small and light enough to use comfortably, and the quad-HD screen will knock your socks off. Some may be put off by the locked-in battery and lack of memory card. For me, these are acceptable trade-offs to gain such an attractive phone.
The phone performed great on AT&T's network in terms of data, and call quality was slightly improved compared to competing variants. The Quick Charge feature works as advertised and being able to drop it on any wireless charging pad is a bonus. (It might be time to invest in one.) I do wish the phone coughed up a few more hours of battery life. In fact, at 15 hours, it's almost a deal-breaker. You can squeeze more from the S6 if you use Power Saver Mode, but that defeats the purpose of owning such a powerful device.

Samsung and AT&T stuffed the phone to the max with unwanted and unneeded apps, but they all work perfectly thanks to the zippy processor. The camera does a fantastic job and the new camera app is a joy to use. With advanced features such as Samsung Pay coming in a few months, there's hardly anything the S6 can't do.
I think the Edge is the better of the two new Galaxy phones, but you're not missing all that much if you opt for the S6 instead. If you can throw caution to the wind (i.e., you're not constrained by money,) I say go for the Edge. If you're more interested in a standard handset that still sets the bar for quality Android devices, the Galaxy S6 is an excellent selection. At $100 less than the Edge, the S6 is also more affordable.
The Galaxy S6 is the phone we've always known Samsung could make. I'm glad it's finally here.
Samsung trotted out two versions of its flagship smartphone for 2015 and took them in a new direction with respect to design. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge boast the highest quality materials and build we've seen from Samsung.
Samsung's 2015 flagship Android smartphone impresses in almost every respect. The company dug deep and produced a class-leading handset capable of pleasing nearly all potential users.
It's zero secret what Samsung is "revealing" today, but plenty of details remain unconfirmed. We're live at Samsung's Unpacked event at MWC in Barcelona for the launch of the Galaxy S6.
