Samsung Galaxy S6 32 GB UK SIM-Free Smartphone - White.
From the manufacturer
Better Design and Technology
Carefully crafted from metal and glass, the Galaxy S6 also provides a solid grip. The glass body - made from Corning Gorilla Glass 4 - is available in an array of colourful jewel tones which elicit a visual texture as it reflects natural light. This design required enhanced glass crafting technology and more quality control, setting the Galaxy S6 apart from every other mobile device on the market. The premium device aesthetics deliver better value and are complemented by a lighter interface that highly enhances usability and functionality. A refined and fully optimised user experience simplifies applications and offers features and settings in a more intuitive way.
A Better Crafted
With a slim, seamless, full metal and glass construction, the sleek, ultra-thin edged Galaxy S6 is crafted from one of the finest materials.
And while it may be the thinnest smartphone Samsung have created, when it comes to cutting-edge technology and flagship Galaxy experience, this 5.1 inch QHD Super AMOLED smartphone is certainly no lightweight.
When you're on the go and short on time, fear not - the Galaxy S6 features the ability to fast charge your battery - letting you watch 2 hours of HD video from just 10 minutes charging.
And with built-in wireless charging capabilities, the Galaxy S6 offers you all the convenience of charging without the need to plug in, ensuring you’re always powered and ready for what's next. (wireless charging pad sold separately).
A Better Camera
Whether you're into capturing selfies or sunsets, the 5 MP front camera and 16 MP rear camera are ready when you are.
With a launch time of just 0.7 seconds, you can capture more of your favourite moments, as they happen. And thanks to its optical image stabilisation, fast tracking auto focus and bigger, f1.9 aperture for better low light results.
A Crisper Display
Protected by the very latest Gorilla Glass, the 5.1 inch QHD Super AMOLED display, with real RGB colour, delivers images and film so life-like, your only problem will be what to enjoy next.

Firstly, I had to cut down my current sim from micro to nano. A bit nerve racking but in the end, easy with a sim cutter I bought from Amazon. Once I logged onto wi-fi and signed into my Google and Samsung accounts, all of my contacts etc came across seamlessly with most of my applications. However, presumably due to this being a later version of Android, some apps didn't download. One is not given any indication of which apps are missing, so I had to go through the installed apps to find out what wasn't there. I then had to find equivalent apps where necessary. A little tedious.
A nice touch was that even my wi-fi settings were restored, so no need to re input passwords etc.
The phone then wanted to apply an Android update (5.1.1) which I OK'd. Using wi-fi the download took a few minutes and the installation a few minutes more. Quite painless.
I use a WD My Cloud device at home for music, documents and movies etc. So no need for me to copy files to the phone. Indeed, the S6 connects to the My Cloud using my home wi-fi and via 4G without issue, however far from home I am (well it worked fine from Dieppe in France).
Obviously, as I was upgrading from a similar Samsung model, my life was made much easier and I didn't have many issues learning to use the device. Anyone coming from a non Android environment will have more difficulty though these later versions of the OS are much more intuitive.
Being glass the phone has a nice weight and feel, and is very thin. I am scared of dropping it so I bought a genuine Samsung flip/wallet case which fits the phone like a glove and isn't bulky. These cases are a rip off from Samsung but can be bought for a reasonable £12 on Amazon. I also bought and fitted a tempered glass screen protector which is effectively invisible in use. I bought the Aukey Premium glass protector as they were on special offer on Amazon.
The S6 is a very straightforward phone to use though I am still on a voyage of discovery! All of the features I've tried so far (including the finger print reader) work well. The rear facing camera has a good 16 mp resolution and takes good photos. I was a little nervous about filling up the phone memory, but, as I set the option to automatically upload camera files to Drop Box, this isn't an issue. Indeed, having installed a shed load of apps, I still have over 20 gb of memory free.
I haven't used the the forward facing camera much, but a couple of Skype calls went fine.
My only real gripe is battery life. I have not been able to get through a full day without a recharge. This may be an issue with all smartphones, but is very annoying. With my previous S5 Mini, the battery lasted much longer and I was able to keep a spare battery in my pocket. Alas, this isn't an option with the S6. My way round this is to use a Samsung Qi charger. It works great and is so easy to use being wireless. It fully charges the S6 in less than 2 hours, so I just pop the phone on the charger pad sometime during the day and again overnight. Quite easy now I'm used to it and much better than having lug a portable power pack or similar about. BTW, the charger works just as well with my phone in its Samsung case.
So, all in all, I am very pleased with this phone. It looks great, feels nice in the hand, has a really fantastic display and everything seems to work well. Battery life is an issue but is not unique to this phone.
Overall, highly recommended.
NOTE. I deliberately bought my S6 direct from Amazon (rather than another supplier 'fullfilled' by Amazon or via Amazon Marketplace) to ensure I received a factory sim free device. You see from other reviews, some of the seller's provide unlocked but logo and app ridden devices originally from mobile providers such as Vodafone. These are not "factory unlocked" devices and I would rather avoid them. IMHO Amazon should make it clearer which phones are truly "factory unlocked" and those which are not. It only cost me about £5 more to buy direct from Amazon - which I consider good value.
UPDATE: I have found that turning display brightness to 'auto' has enhanced battery life considerably and I can get through a day's used of the mobile easily. Indeed, battery performance is now similar to my old S5 Mini.
UPDATE-2: I have recently upgraded the S6 to Android 6 (Marshmallow). This was painless and quick. Importantly this has improved battery life considerably. Marshmallow is also easier to use and noticeably quicker. A big improvement.
I was advised by a colleague that cases that wake-up the phone when the cover is opened are bad for battery life. So, as the Samsung wallet case I purchased with the S6 was looking a little worse for wear, and the "cradle" corners were beginning to crack, I bought an OtterBox Strada (real leather, black). This case is rather expensive (about £23 on Amazon) but is great quality, looks good, and offers true protection. Indeed, it's probably the best S6 case out there. Importantly, it doesn't have the front cover "wake-up" feature and my battery life has improved even more.
As such, I've gone from a battery charge lasting less than a day initially to about 2 days now! That's better.
I have reviewed the OtterBox Strada separately on Amazon.
I gave this one to my auntie who uses her old phone because of the same problem I had, we have sent it back multiple times and it doesn't get fixed, it seems like nothing has even been tried, I cannot recommend you do not buy from this seller enough, there is a no refund policy.
BAD QUALITY, BAD SERVICE, NO REFUNDS.
