In response to the intense competition between Samsung and Apple, Samsung recently released the new Samsung Galaxy S6 phone. There are a few key features on Samsung’s new handsets that could make iPhone 6 owners a bit jealous.
Here are some of the best features on the new Samsung Galaxy S6:
1. Fast Charging
Apple’s iPhone 6 is pretty quick to charge, but it’s nowhere near as fast as the Galaxy S6, which includes fast-charging technology. For phone owners who always seem to have a dying phone battery, this can be a major perk! In just 10 minutes, you can add hours of standby time to your Galaxy S6’s battery.
2. Ability to Run More than One App at a Time
Apple’s iOS platform supports multitasking, but only one app can be used at a time. With the S6 and S6 edge, you can open two apps side by side and even copy content from one and paste it in the other.
3. Wake a Small Part of the Screen to See Notifications
Samsung’s rub-to-wake gesture allows you to wake the side panel on the Galaxy S6 edge to see notifications without having to unlock or even pick up your phone.
4. See Who’s Calling without Picking up Your Phone
If you have your Galaxy S6 edge face-down on your desk and one of your favorite contacts calls, the edges will glow with a specific color associated with that contact. Pretty cool, right?
5. Make Mobile Payments Anywhere
Apple Pay is a fantastic service that couldn’t be easier to use, but it’s still not available in most stores. Samsung Pay, on the other hand, uses a hybrid technology that’s compatible with newer NFC payment terminals as well as older standard credit card terminals.
6. Tracking Auto-Focus
Samsung’s new camera in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge is phenomenal, and a few features are of particular interest. One is tracking auto-focus; simply tap on an object and the Galaxy S6’s camera will constantly adjust focus as it moves, or as you move. The feature works for still photos or while you’re recording a video.
7. Fast-Opening Camera
If you double-tap the Galaxy S6’s home button even while the phone is asleep, the camera will open and be ready to capture a photo in a lightning-fast 0.7 seconds. Don’t miss another perfect photo opportunity again due to a slow camera.
8. Use Your Phone as a TV Remote
iPhone 6 users can buy third-party accessories if they want to use their handset as a TV remote, or some apps include compatibility with specific set-top boxes. The Galaxy S6, however, packs in infrared blaster that can control just about any device you want.
9. Monitor Your Heart Rate
The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge pack a dedicated heart rate monitor that reads your pulse instantly and is very accurate.
With each new release the competition ups the game with bigger, better, faster. It’s difficult for the consumer to keep up. It will be interesting to see how Apple responds to the competition with their next release.
