Features which makes Samsung Galaxy S6 stand out
- Wireless Charging:
S6 features a wireless charging built-in feature using WPC and PMA standards(that includes Qi).Samsung sells its own charging pads but they will be compatible with other brands as well. Quick charging allows it to charge 20% in half hour. This feature might also be integrated in Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
- Finger Print Scanner:
The Home Button would provide authentic finger print scanning for security.This would provide security and make it even more convenient to unlock the phone.
3.Heart Rate Monitor:
For those health concious people,samsung has kept the heart rate monitor from S5 and improved its overall performance.
It may not be used in all the countries but it will make it convenient to make debit/credit card payments. Payments can be made using NFC without using the card itself.
Samsung Galaxy S6 may be expensive but it definately fulfils every need of the android loving crowd.
Quick charging is a feature everyone would prefer as it will reduce the fights around the power charging point when everyone’s battery is down at the same time.
The camera is definitely a major point as it can deliver awesome image and video quality.
