Samsung Galaxy S6 is undoubtedly among the best Android phones available in the market right now. It’s not been a lot of time since the phone was made available for the customers in India and we’ve already seen the phone getting discounted by a good 8,000 Rupees in this brief period. Launched at Rs 49,990, the phone can be picked for Rs 41,900 on major Indian e-commerce websites.
While this is a welcome change for people looking to pick a new phone in this budget, it will also leave early adopters anguished. Although the Galaxy S6 has been well received by the tech media, rumors about the phone not doing as well as expected have started making rounds on the Internet. In fact, word is in the air that the Galaxy S6 is doing worse than even the Galaxy S5, which in turn, sold less than the Galaxy S4. Samsung has refuted these claims of course and claims that the phone is doing well.
Samsung Galaxy S6 sports a 5.1 inch QHD display, along with an in-house Exynos 7420 processor, which beats any other processor in the market, including the Snapdragon 810. Under the hood, you’ll also find 3GB RAM, 32 gigs of non-expandable storage, and a 2,550mAh battery. The camera department is also well covered with 16MP rear and 5MP front cameras. Samsung has reworked on the aesthetics of the phone as well, designing it from ground up to keep it fresh and different from the earlier models.
At Rs 42,000, the phone would be competing with the likes of the Moto Turbo and Nexus 6, as well as the iPhone 6, which sells at close to Rs 45,000. Do our readers think that Samsung Galaxy S6 is not doing well, or is Samsung trying to gain an edge over the competition with the price cut? Let us know below.
