When Samsung finally unveiled its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 in March, everybody was fascinated by the sleek looks of the new handsets. We cannot deny the fact that Samsung is offering us a premium phone with a sturdy aluminum frame in the Galaxy S6 and an elegant look, but the omission of two important features is more than disappointing.
Samsung has always offered us a user replaceable battery and a microSD storage expansion slot, but with its latest Galaxy S6 things have changed. After years praising the advantages of a removable battery, Samsung finally shifted to a fixed one. Is this a problem for? Hot swaps, however, are now a thing of the past, but you should also know in mind that after charging for just 10 minutes, you get no less than 4 hours of usage.
When you need to save battery, Ultra Power Saving Mode will be there, help you, not to mention the Qi wireless charging which comes as standard, so at least you’ll have the chance to refresh your power pack by pluging the S6 down on a compatible pad.
Another change that disappointed us is the microSD card slot, or better said, the lack of it. You won’t be able to just pop in a bigger card when you need more storage with the S6, so what should you do in such a case? Forgetting all about those old photos or videos from last year is not an option. We are aware of the fact that there is an explanation for the company’s decision and that internal storage is faster and better than microSD cards, but what can you do if you ever find yourself in such a difficulty?
Being hard-limited to the phone’s internal SD is a problem for Samsung’s Galaxy S6 owners, but we have some solutions:
