Samsung S6 Special Edition

Keeping you in-charge Samsung’s super snapper THE camera on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge has all the right ingredients to produce a decent mobile snapper to use no matter where you are. It features a 16-megapixel sensor, optical image stabilisation and a very wide aperture at F/1.9 – on paper this all looks great and I’m sure it will appeal to those who want to take pro-like photos and not just ‘selfi es’. Spec is one thing, but when it comes down to it, it’s all about the picture quality and the user experience – and I was not disappointed, Pictures are super sharp, full of detail, and quite colourful. The shutter speed MOBILE Samsung special edition is also extremely quick. The tracking autofocus is a nice touch, especially for moving objects such as cars, and the F/1.9 aperture produces a ‘natural’ true-to-life look that just can’t be beaten by using editing software. 4K video recording is also possible and comes as standard, and even though video stabilisation is off during this mode, the built-in OIS prevents the video from becoming too shaky. The camera modes have also been slimmed down – there’s just a few including selective focus, panorama, and a pro mode for full manual controls, with users being given the option to download more. A new mode called Virtual Shot has been added, which lets you take a full 360-degree view of an object. The camera UI has been simplifi ed and looks very clean, making it far easier to navigate around. Basic camera settings such as fi lters and HDR mode are all available. Camera modes are easily accessible by swiping to the right, or by tapping the mode button in the bottomright corner. This camera really delivers. Samsung cameras have historically been pretty good, but Samsung has exceeded expectations with its latest offerings, and it’s going to be up to other manufacturers to keep up.

It’s this kind of thinking that will appeal to the mass market, allowing Samsung to stand out from the competition, and maybe even come out of it as the wireless hero.
