Design and display

Magnificent design

Metal and glass give the Samsung Galaxy S6 a look and feel of supreme quality. A smooth, super-slim profile looks modern and sits comfortably in your hand, while the glass back gives a satisfying depth to the colour of the phone.

The slimmest Galaxy yet

At just 6.8mm thick, the Galaxy S6 is the slimmest Samsung smartphone yet. That makes it comfortable to hold and easy to slip into any pocket.

A stunning screen

With an amazing 5.1-inch Quad HD screen, everything you do will look epic on the Samsung Galaxy S6. Its super-high resolution means it shows twice as much detail as a Full HD screen. Plus, it uses Samsung's Super AMOLED technology for vivid colours and deep blacks that are perfect for movies.


Next is a better camera

Whether you like to take quick snaps of your family and friends or are an ambitious amateur photographer, the only camera you need is the Samsung Galaxy S6. An incredible 16 megapixel sensor, optical image stabilisation and a super-wide angle lens give brilliant detail in every shot.

Next is sharper selfies

If you love to shoot selfies, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is perfect. Its 5MP front camera takes sharp photos, and with a wide f/1.9 lens, you’ll be able to squeeze more friends into every shot.

Under the hood

Next is powerful performance

Games, apps, web browsing, movies and everything else will run quickly on the Samsung Galaxy S6. Its new processor is unbelievably fast. And with 3GB RAM, you'll be able to have loads of apps running in the background without being slowed down.

Next is all-day battery life

Thanks to advanced battery technology and hyper-efficient hardware, the Samsung Galaxy S6 can keep going all day without sacrificing performance.

Next is effortless charging

When it does come time to recharge your Galaxy S6, it won’t be a chore. With advanced fast-charging, you can get up to four hours’ use from a 10-minute charge. And if you’ve got a wireless charging pad, you won’t need to fiddle with cables as the Galaxy S6 supports the two main wireless charging standards.

Other features


With an advanced fingerprint scanner and KNOX security software keeping your stuff safe, the Galaxy S6 gives you unrivalled peace of mind.


The Galaxy S6 has a handy heart rate monitor and new S Health app to help you stay in shape, monitor your stress levels and hit fitness goals.

Smart Manager

The new Smart Manager app lets you run antivirus scans, clear storage space and boost performance with the tap of a button.

Samsung Galaxy S6 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 355.
Rated 2 out of 5 by none from samsung galaxy s6 love the phone but case broke on magnet strip and can't get a replacement anywhere. cheaper compatible cases dont switch screen off automatically and hard to get to buttons Can't fit a memory card which I was totally unaware if when upgrading and could have gone for larger memory phone but not in stock at the time. if I had known this I would have gone for the s7 or another phone due to memory available I now have to wait another 18 months for an upgrade and am a little disappointed in tgis model although I normally love samsung phones just a shame they have stopped supplying the accessories for these phones Not a problem with customer service and sale of item just purely a lack of ongoing accessories and could have got 2 covers if I'd known at the time of purchase, therefore wouldn't recommend buying it now. only had the phone 4 months when magnet strip broke!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mr MC from Nice looking phone, but... For first two months I loved this phone. After that troubles started. One day, it simply turned off and I couldn't get it back to work anymore, so I took it for repair to Carphone Warehouse. They repaired it under warranty. Currently, I'm nearly out of warranty (one month left), this phone was taken to repair 4 times and latest fault still persists. Something is rattling inside the phone and that appeared after one of repairs, so I went back and requested for the issue to be fixed. Now I'm in dispute with Carphone Warehouse to replace this phone with new one, or refund the money, so I can purchase different handset. As much, as I like the S6, I never had so many problems with any other make/model. And not sure what happened with Carphone Warehouse customer service, but currently, it's really poor...
