Do you intend to switch to a new Galaxy S6 Android phone? This is a great choice as long as the handset has beastly specs and a new look that you’ll adore. The smooth glass-and-matte-metal body, the home-made Exynos processor running on none other than Android Lollipop out of the box, the 5.1-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,560×1,440 pixels (and a density of 577 pixels per inch) are making it such an ideal choice!
