If you want a flagship phone but don’t want the latest in the series, then why not save big and go for a phone that was the top of its class when it was first released? Samsung’s Galaxy S6 is still an impressive unit, able to be upgraded to Android 7.0 and sporting an excellent processor, display and camera.
How does the screen hold up?
The display is one of the Galaxy S6’s finest features, with a gorgeous Super AMOLED panel for deep blacks and rich contrast, and a stunning Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) resolution crammed into the 5.1-inch size.
Can it take decent photos?
A talking point about the Galaxy S6 upon release was its incredible camera, the design hasn’t changed all that much with the Galaxy S7 and even the S8, so you know you’re in for a treat here. Not only will it take excellent photos, you get a 4K video shooter here too to really bring out the detail in the action.
Is it still worth buying?
Considering the Samsung Galaxy S6 was widely deemed to be the best Android phone of 2015, the fact that you can nab all of that power and premium-style for a massive discount means that it’s perfect for power- and casual users alike. If you’re not dying to spend top dollar to be ahead of the curve, why not save a bucketload of money and still end up with a premium handset.
