Samsung Galaxy S6 uses a Sony IMX240 camera sensor

02 March, 2015
The same 16MP sensor that Samsung used in the Galaxy Note 4 camera. The S6 has improved optics.

How did tell you note 4 presented the best display while a lot of people made some complaints about their dead note 4 display. In addition to this, display quality is a matter of taste. So there would not be a fixed criteria to evaluate that. Regarding innovation, all phones have their unique technology. So some mere add-ons can not be regarded as the new innovations.

How about dethroning the Note 4 to Worlds best display?
Or the introduction of UFS II storage giving it the fastest storage in any phone?
How about the first 14nm chip which is the actual beast?
Or their ability and tweaks to the camera that far overshadow?
Using metal 50% stronger than others?
And yeah Sony made the sensor. But Samsung made it work better. And when they make their own they work better.
So point?

I think they need more improvement to video though. Especially those framerates.

Overall an amazing package though. If you do get it you should share some results/opinions ^^. I'm on the site a lot

The only strong point of Galaxy S6 is it's camera that made by Sony (the Beast)

I bet RAW photos will actually be pretty good.
