MKBHD has reviewed the new Samsung Galaxy S6, which features a new design with a non-removable battery and non-removable storage at up to 128GB capacity. The all metal design provides a great feel and a major change from the prior plastic look and feel on older Samsung Galaxy models.
The Galaxy S6 has a solid 2560 x 1440 resolution and what MKBHD calls the best smartphone display, hands down. Touch Wiz has also been toned down for much better performance in day-to-day use. The 16MP camera has optical image stabilization and MKBHD thinks its the best camera of any Android phone and rivals even the iPhone 6+.
All in all, MKBHD thinks it is an awesome phone with some minor battery issues and minor complaints about Touch Wiz. You can find the Galaxy S6 here on Amazon.
MKBHD has published his review of the new HTC One M9. Check it out in the video above.
As he points out, the key changes to the HTC One M9 come on the inside. The outside remains very similar to the HTC One M8.
The HTC One M9 is still using Android 5.0.2 (no word when it will get the 5.1 upgrade) with the Sense 7 skin, which has a ton of built-in skins from which to choose. Performance is solid and very responsive with its 3GB RAM and Snapdragon processor.
The camera gets a big upgrade to a 20MP camera, which MKBHD says it still isn’t quite up to snuff with a lackluster dynamic range and sad performance with its 4K video capture.
You can find the HTC One M9 here on Amazon.com.
Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 earlier this week at Mobile World Congress 2015. The new handset is a complete about-face with the design on which Samsung has relied for so many years. Gone is the plastic body from previous Samsung Galaxy handsets – now we have a full metal and glass exterior with the Galaxy S6. [Read more…]
