Samsung Talks Through Galaxy S6 Hardware, Samsung Pay, Charging and More in Latest Video

In the third installment for Samsung’s official hands-on videos of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, the company takes a nerdier approach to explaining the phone by diving into the processor, RAM, UFS 2.0 memory, before going through software-related features like Smart Manager and Ultra Power Saving Mode. From there, it’s on to the phone’s “Fast Charge” capabilities, support for multiple wireless charging standards, and Samsung Pay.

This isn’t the best of the videos thus far, but it’s something, especially for those who can’t get enough of Samsung’s two new flagship phones.

To watch the camera hands-on and unboxing, check out the videos here and here

    I think I may have spoken too soon about the s6 and s6 edge. My first gut was Sammy was just copying apple but after hearing more about it and seeing it in a few videos from all sides I’m actually impressed. TouchWiz seems a little better and the hardware is much much better, still not a fan of the hardware buttons but I think I can look past that if everything else is on point.

  • ScoobySnack

    I still can’t believe they added native wireless charging, but dropped water resistance.

  • Chippah

    I think it looks great in Blue and Green, but as always, in North America especially on Verizon we will
    guaranteed only be able to get Black & white. (until 9 months later when they do a best buy blue.)

  • Cory S

    These ads presented as third party tech bloggers are rather deceptive imo.

  • Droid

    Original name… samesung pay. Looks like they copied more than just the look of the iPhone.

    • Dan Letsch

      So, because they can pay with their phone (which has been available for 3 years on Android), they are copying Iphone? This is even with the fact that it works at 100x more places than apple pay, but they are copying, really?

    The best feature
    I like in it is faster charging powered by Qualcomm quick charge 2.0-technology.
    Well, I even bought a quick charge 2.0 car charger from Amazon: http://goo.gl/sNoUJq at discounted rate that
    comes with a dedicated quick charge 2.0-port and 3 Smart USB Ports. I find it on their official facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ChoeTech

    Surprised DL isnt mentioning (well, not focusing on anyway) the THEME MANAGER of the s6?

    For me that’s HUGE as it allows us to finally ditch the god awful look of TW and someone will almost certainly make a Nexus theme…looking forward to that!

    • Cory S

      Yeah, lets wait and see what the limitations are on it.

      • mcdonsco

        From what I’ve seen in the video it resolves most of my hatred of TW.

    • Josh Matthews

      should’ve rooted your phone, we’ve had the touchwiz theme engine for years

      • mcdonsco

        Never knew about it

        • Josh Matthews

          The Korean versions have had it, they get more wonky features than us. Although this is obviously a cool feature. Sammobile is a good way to check that stuff out

          • mcdonsco

            For me I always hated TW for the lag but also, and maybe even more importantly for me, the looks of it; just horrid looking. So knowing with the s6 without rooting or roming I can make it look like a nexus, is very appealing to me.

    • the_real_patrick_bateman

      I don’t think the theme functionality is that robust. It looked to me like changes were limited to colors, fonts, app icons, wallpapers, etc. It doesn’t look like you can actually change the layout and design of the notification area and quick settings beyond the colors… but please someone correct me if I’m wrong.

      • mcdonsco

        Well, for me that’s a great start just being able to ditch the nasty ass TW colors.

        • the_real_patrick_bateman

          Oh yeah, don’t get me wrong, having control to change the colors will make a huge difference… it’s just pretty far from developing a theme indistinguishable from something that looks like AOSP.


  • NeveloII

    I’m sorry but the s6 edge is beast especially in gold I’m so getting one! Welcome back samsung

  • DanSan

    is it me or does that “Clean All” button the smart manager just scream Clean Master?

    • Cory S

      It literally is clean master.

  • bnm27

    there is nothing new in this video that wasn’t in their previous videos, why would they put this out? Seriously, this just bits from their other videos edited together.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Unlocked US Model? That’s what I need…

    • Jay Holm

      Yes! Topaz Blue, 128GB’s, and all of T-Mobile’s LTE bands including Band 12!

      • mcdonsco

        Seriously, wtf do you need 128gb’s on a phone for?

        Obviously 16gb wasn’t anywhere near enough room so, glad they squashed that, but 128gb’s? For what? You can do everything via cloud storage now.

        Maybe I’m just weird, but all my photos and video is in google photos on my drive, which I get instant access to (and instant uploads to of new stuff I take) with no worries about filling up my free space on my phone.

        Music? Pandora and google music, all cloud.

        • Jay Holm

          What does it matter if it’s “just a phone”, or a laptop, or a pc, when determining memory? That’s what I would like to know. Memory usage doesn’t change based on the type of “device” a person is using. Also, it isn’t up to you to determine how much memory I would like on my smartphone!

          • mcdonsco

            Nope, its not…for sure…I just couldn’t guess what someone would need that level of storage for on a phone *except* if they are no where near coverage areas regularly and take all their music with them (but even then for most people, that’s still less than 20gb’s or so)…maybe they’re taking their movie collection too?

  • Anoneyemou5e

    Any word on if there will be a Dev. Edition?

  • Detonation

    First words of the video – “…has a faster performance and…”

    I know what they’re trying to say, but that doesn’t make sense. Nobody says “my processor has a faster performance than yours”

    • Dusty

      If you think about it there are a couple assumptions you can come up with. Some of the assumptions i came up with are:
      1. has a faster performance processor?
      2. he simply said the line wrong and meant to say “has faster performance and increased battery life.”

    • Steve

      Pork Chop Sandwiches!

  • tu3218

    Very interested to hear more about the new payment system with it working at any card machine. Should be pretty awesome to use the phone anywhere even without NFC.

    • Christopher Moore

      Here is the company that Samsung bought; it’s called loop pay. I assume that they built the tech into the S6 thus not requiring the dongle. Or maybe Samsung will have dongles that you would hand over to a waitress.


      • _elliothunter_

        I can only say that Samsung really did a good job on the S6 and S6 Edge. No wonder if it’l be a big hit like the S5 and Note 4 which received high review ratings from the consumer. (see review site such as http://www.allreport.org/phones/ my favorite…)

          hahaha, most awesome spam reply ever.

      • MistaButters

        Credit is safer than cash. Plus, why would you not want points/miles for spending you do anyways?

        • MKader17

          Because people spend 8-12% more when using credit over cash.

          Yes, I know you are not one of those people. Neither was I until I stopped using my credit car for everyday purchases.

          • MistaButters

            I definitely eat out more than I would if I didn’t have a credit card. It’s a lot easier to swipe for a meal than it is to count out $50 and realize you are paying that much just for freaking food.

  • Grandchild David

    “So clearly, the battery life is great (if you carry a charging cable and use the ultra saving mode all the time).” Oh Samsung and your marketing…

  • Jose Romero

    They should do a detailed video of the manufacturing process. Those videos are always awesome.

    • michael arazan

      Love the testing videos of how they try to damage the phones, and create artificial wear and tear to see how long till the device breaks, scratches and such.
