Appearance

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has a full aluminium trim body, unlike previous models that come with a plastic body.

The front and back are covered fully in glass making it slippery to hold. You should be careful when handling so it doesn’t fall. It lacks a microSD space so you’d have to make do with the internal storage space.

It has slightly bulging rear camera that makes it impossible to lie completely flat face-up.

Altogether, these make the Samsung Galaxy S6 have a very sleek and attractive appearance.
