HANDS ON EXPERIENCE:

Taking a look at the pictures will not do justice. You must hold it and have a feel to it. We suggest that you get to visit any Samsung store to experience the Samsung Galaxy S6 first hand.

We’ve read so many reviews of the this phone and it is indeed true. It feels really good in the hand. Paying P35,990 for the 32GB model is worth it! Samsung has really taken smartphone to a whole new and higher level. Afraid of breaking the Galaxy S6? No need to worry. The phone’s chassis is made of metal and glass. The glass front and back is made of Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 so expect this phone to withstand drops.

The display is absolutely beautiful! It is the most beautiful display we’ve ever seen on a smartphone. At 577 ppi, expect the icons on the 5.1-inch display will really pop!

Samsung also made an overhaul not just on the outside but also on its software too. All the bloops and bleeps are gone. All of the bloatware are gone too. Samsung’s Touchwiz may have maintained its design but you’ll notice a speedy and lag free experience when using the phone. The term “Samsung lag” is GONE!
