Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge review: Samsung’s best phones in years

dashcrab galaxy s6

Samsung found itself in sort of a bind last year: Its flagship Galaxy S5 wasn’t the blockbuster the company hoped it would be. That, coupled with the news that Samsung was going to focus on a smaller number of devices in 2015, signaled a pretty dramatic change for a brand that seemed like it was unstoppable. As if to silence the doubters, Samsung has not one, but two flagships on offer — the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge — and they’re surrounded by questions. Can they restore Samsung to its former glory? Has the company figured out how to build a truly interesting smartphone again? It’s too early to make a call on the former, but after a week of testing, the answer to the latter is a clear and definite “yes.”.


Before we go any further, know this: Aside from the obvious differences — the Edge has a wrap-around screen and a few software tricks that take advantage of it — the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge are basically identical. Same screen size, same 16-megapixel cameras, same octa-core Exynos 7420 brains, and so on. They’re two devices crafted with the same metal, glass and silicon, which makes the dramatic design differences between them all the more meaningful.

Looking at it dead on, though, the S6 is pretty plain. Your eyes will immediately get sucked into the 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen, but a 5-megapixel selfie camera sits above it while the Home button lies below, flanked by discrete Back and Recent Apps keys. High on the S6’s back is a squarish plateau that houses the 16-megapixel camera, and to the right lies a tiny black divot where the LED flash and heart rate sensor live. Unlike the crater that marked the Galaxy S5’s back, the assembly here is almost flush with the S6’s rear. It’s a small touch, but it makes taking heart rate and blood oxygen readings in S Health quite a bit easier.

Really, it’s details like these that speak most loudly to Samsung’s new design philosophy. Let’s put aside for a moment the fact that Samsung traded its trademark plastic bodies for sturdy metal frames and Gorilla Glass 4 panels lining the S6’s front and back. What’s more important — and consequently harder to express in words — are the little touches that tie everything together. The S6’s rounded sides are punctuated by a flat edge for your fingers to rest on. The gaps between the metal and Gorilla Glass are so fine as to be imperceptible. The sole speaker has been moved to the phone’s bottom so you’re not blasting tunes straight into your desk. I could go on, but the S6 just feels seamless in a way its predecessor never did.

And no, your eyes don’t deceive you: The Galaxy S6 looks (and feels) an awful lot like an iPhone. From those rounded sides to the chrome-rimmed, fingerprint-sensing Home button to placement of the volume buttons on the left edge and the power button on the right, there’s an odd air of familiarity surrounding the thing. (A brief aside: One of Samsung’s spokespeople picked up my iPhone 6 during our hands-on time in February and it seemed to take him a few moments to realize what he was actually holding.) Flame wars on the matter are already starting to brew, but I’m not too concerned; Samsung’s end result is lovely, and that’s all most people will care about.

Alas, though, streamlining the S6’s design meant taking an axe to some of the things that endeared the Galaxy line to persnickety nerds — namely, the removable battery and microSD card slot. My T-Mobile review unit came with 32GB of internal storage ($0 down with monthly payments on T-Mo, or $199 with a contract elsewhere), but you’ll soon be able to buy 64GB and 128GB models too. And the biggest heartbreak? The S6 breaks tradition by dying when you drop it in a pool. The news will be more tragic for some than others but not having to handle the S5 with kid gloves was a treat. Hopefully Samsung figures out a way to waterproof a design like this before next year rolls around.

Now, about the Edge ($299 with a contract). It’s equal parts gorgeous and gimmicky, but if money is no object, the former definitely outweighs the latter. Unlike the G Flex2, the Edge’s curved screen falls away from you at the sides instead of angling toward you from the top and bottom. The design does nothing to make the screen more immersive, but that doesn’t matter; the screen’s novelty and beauty still mean it’s hard to tear your eyes off it. The S6 Edge feels substantially thinner than its basic cousin because of how its sides taper to a super-slim edge. This trick is a familiar one — Motorola has done it with every Moto X to date — but it keeps getting recycled for a reason. The thing is, the Edge will probably never nestle comfortably into your hands as a result; if your fingers are like mine, they’ll forever arch over its back, which can sometimes feel a little precarious. In fact, at times I wished the curve were on the opposite side just so the rest of my hand had something to hang onto. On the plus side, that extra space along the Edge’s sides gives you room to swipe up, down, left and right without your thumb ever obscuring the action. Really, though, these navigational benefits feel like an afterthought, like happy little accidents that came about thanks to Samsung’s screen-shape decision. Make no mistake: The Edge’s main job is to look good.

Display and sound

If you wanted to skip this section outright, just know this before you go: The S6 and the S6 Edge have absolutely gorgeous screens. They’re both Quad HD panels (2,560 x 1,440, if you haven’t memorized it yet) akin to the one you’ll find in the Note 4, but they only measure at 5.1 inches diagonally. Yep, you guessed it: That means we’re looking at two of the most pixel-dense screens on the market today. As far as your eyes will be able to tell, individual pixels don’t even exist. Whether or not modern smartphone screens actually need to be this insanely crisp is a question that’s up for debate, but my stance is pretty simple: As long as battery life doesn’t tank as a result, bring ’em on.

As is usually the case with Samsung’s AMOLEDs, colors are incredibly vivid, while blacks are deep and sumptuous. A quick bit of screen nerdery for you: AMOLED panels typically skew a little more toward the blue end of the spectrum than LCDs do, which means it’s actually a pleasant surprise that whites appear more neutral here than they do on the new HTC One M9. Some of this is going to be subjective, of course. I’ll admit I like my screens a little punchy, and the S6’s color settings suited me just fine out of the box. If that’s not your taste, you can pop into the settings and swap screen modes to something more appropriate: the “AMOLED cinema” setting pumps up color saturation across the board, while “AMOLED photo” dials it down a bit from the default “Adaptive” setting. Then you’ve got the “Basic” setting, which just sucks the life out of everything. It’s arguably the most accurate mode of the four, but really, where’s the fun in that? Viewing angles on the S6 are great too — a lucky break for the poor soul whose in-flight entertainment system crapped out and has to watch your episodes of The Fall from the side.

So far I’ve been treating both screens as if they were the same, but that’s clearly not true. The Note Edge wanted to cram gobs of functionality into that spillover area. The G Flex and G Flex2 sought to draw you into media with a curved screen reminiscent of high-end TVs. The S6 Edge does none of those things. It just sort of… is. I’ll break down more what the screen’s edges actually can do down in the software section, but Samsung’s overriding concern here was making a screen that looks awesome, and on that front, it succeeded. At its most severe, the Edge’s screen curves away from you at about 35 degrees, as if the sides are retreating into your palms. Let’s put our nitpicker hats on for a second — that means that from some oblique angles, the stuff that flows into those subtle curves will appear much brighter than it does on the flat part of the screen. It’s the mildest of annoyances (I don’t remember ever being bothered by it), but it’ll definitely stand out at first.

So yes, the S6 and the S6 Edge look lovely. How do they sound? Both devices share the same single speaker nestled into the bottom-right corners of their frames, and it’s dramatically louder than the clunker we got in last year’s Galaxy S5. There’s no way it’ll ever hold a candle to the One M9 and its pair of BoomSound speakers, but the S6 duo’s driver brings enough oomph to the table that you can stick the phone into your car’s cupholder, crank up the volume and still hear plenty over the din of the road.



Best Buy rallies with trade-in deal for Surface Pro 3

Best Buy rallies with trade-in deal for Surface Pro 3

The retailer’s promotion scores you a gift card and a coupon good toward the purchase of a new Surface Pro 3 when you trade in your existing tablet.

  • by Lance Whitney

Best Buy is offering a trade-in deal for Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 tablet.

Valid through Saturday, the promotion is straightforward. Trade in your existing tablet, and Best Buy will give you a gift card worth at least $50 as well as a $150 coupon. Both are good toward the purchase of a Surface Pro 3. The tablet you trade in must be in working condition, and the amount of the gift card depends on the tablet’s specific condition.

Microsoft and various retailers have been striving to entice consumers with the Surface Pro 3, which was launched last May. A December promotionfrom Microsoft and another one in February slashed the price of the tablet by $100. Microsoft has been touting the Surface Pro 3 as a suitable replacement for a laptop, even running ads comparing the tablet with Apple’s MacBook Air. The goal is to convince people that the Surface Pro 3 is more versatile because it can double both as a tablet and as a notebook with the addition of the Type cover keyboard.

Microsoft also recently unveiled the Surface 3, a less-expensive version of the Pro 3 that will launch May 5 in the US, Australia and UK, and on May 7 in other countries. Recent rumors claims that Microsoft may also reveal the Surface Pro 4 tablet in July, according to Venture Capital Post.

Best Buy’s promotion imposes typical terms and conditions. The deal is available in-store, but apparently not at all locations. So your best bet would be to call your local Best Buy store ahead of time to make sure it will honor the deal. You’re limited to trade-ins of two tablets per person and of one coupon toward the purchase of the Pro.

The tablet you trade in must be able to power on and cannot have water damage or a cracked screen. You can find out how much Best Buy will give you for your existing tablet by checking the retailer’strade-in page and plugging in the name and condition of the device.

The Surface Pro 3 is thinner and lighter than the previous two models and offers a 12-inch, high-resolution display. A kickstand and a digital pen are included, but you’ll have to pay extra for the keyboard : $130 for the Type cover.

Excluding any trade-in discounts, Best Buy sells the Surface Pro 3 lineup at the following prices:

  • Surface Pro 3 Intel Core i3 64GB, $799
  • Surface Pro 3 Intel Core i5 128GB, $999
  • Surface Pro 3 Intel Core i5 256GB, $1,299
  • Surface Pro 3 Intel Core i7 256GB, $1,549
  • Surface Pro 3 Intel Core i7 512GB, $1,949

Samsung Galaxy S6 dual-SIM phone pops up in online photos

Samsung Galaxy S6 dual-SIM phone pops up in online photos

Allegedly dubbed the S6 Duo, this additional variant of Samsung’s upcoming flagship phone supposedly comes packed with two SIM card slots, allowing the owner to use two phone numbers.

  • by Lance Whitney  


  • April 8, 2015 7:17 AM PD
  • Samsung will offer yet another version of its Galaxy S6 smartphone, this one dual-SIM cards, according to photos allegedly leaked online.
  • Pictures of the purported phone snagged by blog site Phone Arena show a device with two SIM card trays. The device itself is a prototype model, says Phone Arena, so the external shell is just a disguise. But the internal components are reportedly the same as those found on the regular Galaxy S6. The model number seen on the screen is SM-G920, the same number assigned to the S6.
    Why offer a dual-SIM phone? Such phones are designed to hold two different phone numbersand therefore two different identities as the same time. So you can make and receive phone calls and texts using either number. Further, a dual-SIM phone makes it easier for you to jump from one carrier to another, especially handy if you constantly travel from one country to another and need to switch between carriers.
    In late March, the Galaxy S6 Duo appeared on a Russian retail website, popping up alongside the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge phones. An alleged photo of the S6 Duo also was leaked online by an Italian journalist revealing the dual-SIM trays, as spotted by Forbes.
    Beyond the dual-SIM functionality, the core specs for the purported Galaxy S6 Duo would likely be the same as those for the S6 and S6 Edge. The new S6 models come with a 5.1-inch quad HD display, an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and a 16-megapixel rear camera. For internal storage, you can opt for 32GB, 64GB or 128GB.
    Assuming the Duo is or becomes a reality, no reports have suggested when or where it might be available.
    The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are both available now for preorder. Consumers in the US can preorder the phones from any of the four major carriers: AT&TVerizonT-Mobile or Sprint. The phones will officially hit retail and online markets this Friday.
    A spokeswoman for Samsung declined CNET’s request for comment.

How to stay safe online: CNET’s security checklist

Do you have good habits? Safeguard your personal information against the most common Internet perils by taking these security measures.

It’s always better to be safe than sorry. Especially when it comes to your personal information. Keeping your info secure online requires you to take more time and care, but what you lose in moments you’ll surely make up in peace of mind.

Follow the steps below to increase your online security.

Protecting your password

Sure, you’re not likely to openly share your password with people you don’t trust, but unfortunately you don’t have to go that far for it to be compromised. Yes, keeping passwords to yourself is a smart first step, but there is room to go further.

One tip is to choose a password that isn’t easy for others to guess. Computer security expert, Bruce Scheier, suggests to “Combine a personally memorable sentence with some personally memorable tricks to modify that sentence into a password.” So if your sentence is “When I was eleven my sister made me fight the neighborhood bully”, your password could be “Wiw11msmmFtnbully”. Obviously, don’t use that one, but instead come up with your own.

Keep your email from getting hacked

Believe it or not, even in the age of Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and text messages, people still use email to communicate. And as a consequence, emails still get hacked. As many times as computer users have been told not to click attachments from untrustworthy sources — or sometimes even from people you doknow — apparently we still click on them. Which unfortunately can lead to your email being hacked or some nefarious program being installed on your machine. So seriously, stop doing that.

If you get an attachment from someone you know that you were not expecting, check with the sender to confirm it was sent on purpose. Clicking on a malicious attachment can install malware on your machine, like a worm or virus.

Here are no less than 10 other ways protect your email from being compromised.

Shopping online

If you’re using your credit card to shop online, there is risk that your information will be stolen and used to buy something against your will. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Only use your credit on websites with the prefix, “https”. The “s” in https indicates that the site in question is using a secure protocol to encrypt communications between you and the website. You’ll see this protocol used on online banking sites and shopping sites if you’re looking at sensitive information.

Ultra HD 4K TV color, part II: The (near) future

Ultra HD 4K TV color, part II: The (near) future

We’re on the cusp of a revolution in TV color. Whether via DCI P3 or Rec. 2020, richer, more lifelike colors are coming soon to content and TV screens near you. Here’s what you need to know.

  • by Geoffrey Morrison 
  • March 20, 2015 11:21 AM PDT

One of the least appreciated, and frequently overlooked, aspects of a TV’s performance is the realism of its colors. The more accurate the colors, the more lifelike the picture.

Despite the advent of high-def, we’re still stuck with colors largely based on the limitations of CRT technology. Today’s televisions are technically capable of better color but are held back by the content and specifications of HD.

That’s all about to change. Upcoming color standards aim to improve color and bring it, finally, into the 21st century.

If you haven’t read through Part I of this article, I highly encourage you to do so. It covers the basics of how TVs create color today.

In this part, I’ll discuss how color is set to improve tomorrow. To get more realistic color, there are two aspects that must be improved: color gamut and bit depth. Let’s start with color gamut as it’s the easier to understand.

Color gamut

A TV (or TV signal’s) color gamut is all the color that’s possible for it to create. The greenest green, the bluest blue and the reddest red (and by extension, yellow, cyan, magenta, and so on). The easiest way to visualize this is with a triangle. Check out the image at the top of the page. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

The smallest triangle is the “Rec. 709” color space, also known as “HDTV.” Your eye can see colors far beyond what’s possible on today’s televisions (obviously). Two commonly used examples are the red of a fire truck (below) and the purple of an eggplant (aubergine). These can’t be accurately represented with Rec. 709.

Daniel Terdiman/CNET

Expanding the color gamut (making the triangle wider) lets your TV show those colors and many more. A “redder” red, so to speak. We’ll discuss them more later, but the two larger triangles (P3 and Rec. 2020) on the chart above represent the two main potential upcoming color gamuts. As you can see, they’re capable of including a lot more colors.

Bit depth

The other aspect is bit depth, which is a bit more complex to understand. TVs don’t have an infinite color palette to choose from. Being digital, each color has to be represented by a number. Current HDTV uses an 8-bit system. This means there are 256 shades possible for each color (it’s not quite that, but let’s not overcomplicate it).

So a blue of “20” is so dark as to be almost black (but still blue), and a “220” is a bright blue.

This may not seem like a lot or range, but it’s enough — it gives the potential of over 16.7 million colors (256 green x 256 blue x 256 red). Even with that many potential colors, you still have the possibility of banding (which is exactly what it sounds like: bands instead of smooth transitions of colors), and you can miss out on in-between shades.

What TVs (and 4K Blu-rays) are moving toward now is a 10-bit system. This means 1,024 shades per color. That means many more steps or “shades of gray” and access to over a billion colors.

Combine greater bit depth with greater color gamut and color realism takes a big leap.

By the way, 8-bit is also rather limiting in the amount of detail you can have, in terms of overall brightness, in any given shot. For more on that, check out High Dynamic Range Arrives.

And then there’s your eye

For years, I, as well as other TV reviewers, have discussed how TVs with RGB LEDs (or quantum dots) just had richer, more realistic color reproduction, even when objectively measuring the same color accuracy as other TVs.

One TV designer put it this way: RGB LEDs (and by extension, LEDs augmented by laser and QD), are like painting with better, purer paint. What he meant was this: sure, any paint will let you create an image, but you can get a more realistic image with better paint.

Turns out (not surprisingly), there’s a reason for this. The human eye (and brain) see pure colors as brighter. The more “pure” the red, the brighter it seems. So a wide-spectrum red, which is pretty typical on most TVs, won’t seem as bright as a more focused red, such as that from a laser, LED, or quantum dot. The result is a more realistic representation of the colors intended by the content creators.

However, there is a potential drawback. The more pure the wavelengths used, the more potential variation there is among the viewers. That’s the fascinating part. Because all our eyes are subtly and slightly different, the way we see these pure colors will vary, the purer they are.

In other words, on one future TV I might see a perfect red, exactly how I see an apple or a fire truck. You might see it as close to that, but not quite that realistic. We’re both right, as that’s how our eyes and brain see it.

Video screenshot by Anthony Domanico/CNET

It goes back to the hoopla about the white/gold/blue/black dress. We have no way of knowing how someone sees a particular color, and neither of us is wrong no matter what. It’s how we see it, and in that, it’s innately personal.

Does this mean that we might have TVs that get great reviews from one reviewer and bad reviews from another (an opinion echoed in stores and bars and homes around the country)? Perhaps. More likely, the TV manufacturers will figure out what that point is where nearly everyone sees “really good” color, avoiding going beyond so that a few see “amazing” color and others see “meh” color.

This is all pretty new territory for the TV world, so it will be interesting to see (pun intended) how it all plays out.

For more info, I talk about this further and have additional links in the Quantum Dot article.

4K BD and streaming

The best part of this, and why it’s so much more likely to happen, is that the additional data can be on the disc (or in the feed), and still have legacy compatibility. No separate “Expanded Color” discs. Run a disc on a “normal” 4K TV, and it runs with Rec. 709. Run it on a TV with expanded color compatibility, and you get the expanded color.

In a way, it’s a lot like how color was implemented on the old black-and-white over-the-air broadcasts. The transmission was black and white, but the color data was included in a way that black-and-white TVs never saw it, but color TVs could strip it out, and rebuild it.

Rec. 2020 or DCI P3

One of the discussions going on right now is by how much the new standards will take us beyond what we have now. On one hand is Rec. 2020, which is way more color than the current Rec. 709. There’s some off-the-record comments that Rec. 2020 is a step too far, that current technology can’t really do it. That, to me, sounds like a good thing. Something to aim for.

What’s we’re likely to get is DCI P3. This is the color section of the Digital Cinema Initiative. In other words, it’s what you’re seeing in movie theaters. P3 is far more likely to be implemented than Rec. 2020, since P3 color is what the studios already have. They’re a lazy bunch and would rather give you what they’ve got than go back and remaster a bunch of old films (again). Also, any movie shot digitally in the past few years might have P3 (or less), and it certainly can’t have more since the camera didn’t capture it.

While P3 is more likely, there doesn’t seem to be a technical reason why both possibilities can’t exist. As in, P3 for now, Rec. 2020 later. Since it’s just changing what the extra data is on the disc, it would be like adding an additional or new soundtrack, not changing a format.

Why now; why it’s possible

Discussions of wider color gamuts are nothing new. A few years ago there was a span of about 10 minutes where a few people got excited about xvYCC, a way to incorporate wider colors gamuts into regular HDTV signals. It was used basically never.

Today is different. We have a new storage medium incoming, it’s easy to change streaming content, and everything is now digital. No more being hampered by component video. Adding new data to the huge pipe provided by HDMI 2.0 is relatively easy.

Making all the pieces provide and work with that signal certainly isn’t a walk in the park, but it’s easier now than it had been.

Bottom line

The beauty of these new color possibilities is that TV manufacturers are already starting to implement them. While not “easy,” like adding a new app or changing a remote, the technologies that make these expanded colors possible come with other benefits (like energy efficiency). The likelihood your next TV will have expanded color potential if you buy in the next year or so is pretty good. If you buy in the next several years, it’s quite high.

Presuming the content comes with the additional data, we should see a big improvement in color realism as soon as later this year. Well, for those few people with the TVs and 4K BDs that are capable of it.

After that, the sky’s a multicolored rainbow of loveliness.

iOS 8.3 settings: skip password for free apps, Siri makes speakerphone calls

iOS 8.3 settings: skip password for free apps, Siri makes speakerphone calls

 Mar 22, 2015phone_icon-1

Adam Westlake

As Apple recently released the latest beta version of iOS 8.3, several new settings options have been discovered by testers. Among them is a new option related to entering an Apple ID password when free apps are downloaded, as well the ability for virtual assistant Siri to make calls via speakerphone. The current version of iOS 8.2 still requires passwords to be entered when choosing to download a free app, while having Siri place call, even when using the hands-free “Hey Siri” method, would automatically switch the audio to the ear piece.

With iOS 8.3, when users go to iTunes & App Store in Settings, a new set of options labeled Password Setting can be found. Under this, users can configure how often an Apple ID password must be entered for purchases, an option that already exists in iOS, and a new toggle setting that allows the password to be skipped altogether when downloading free apps or iTunes content.

Users running the iOS 8.3 beta who’ve spotted this setting say they can view the option, but it’s currently disabled. Also, this setting is only viewable when Touch ID for purchases is disabled. Authentication will still be required as it is now according to user settings for any paid apps or iTunes content.

As for Siri, now when users are taking advantage of hands-free mode, allowing the assistant to be activated with the phrase “Hey Siri” as long as the device is plugged in for charging, giving the command to place a call will have it remain on speakerphone. Other features to expect in the final release of iOS 8.3 include new,diversified and customizable emoji, as well as wireless CarPlay connectivity, and, presumably, features and settings related to Apple Watch pairing.
