Samsung Galaxy S6
lol, the S6 is the reason I switched over to the iPhone.
The screen did look good and it was a good phone for web surfing and watching videos. The S6 was reliable 98% of the time but every once in a while it would freeze or lock-up.
On Black Friday 2016 my carrier had a great deal on the S6 so I got one for myself and one for my daughter.
The battery was atrocious. I never downloaded any apps or played any music because the battery life struggle to keep up with the basics. When I had a couple apps on the phone, the battery was lucky to make it through the day.
When my daughter's S6 hit the 23 month mark, the phone would randomly power off. So we traded her S6 in for an S8.
After 18 months the battery life on my S6 got worse than it already was. Once the phone hit the 23 month mark, I would have to charge the phone halfway through the day. At the 25 month mark it was almost unbearable. On the last day I had the phone, it was almost too hot to touch just from using a web-browser and the phone had lost 40% of it's battery life within an hour. I couldn't stand the s6 anymore so I went to my carrier and got an iPhone.
I had the s3, s4, and Note 3 and those were all good phones. My daughter has an S8 which she's had for over 2 years and she's happy with it. The S6 was clearly a bust by Samsung. I guess that's why my carrier practically gave me the phone.

Bought it in 2015, accidentally dropped it lots of times and it's still working fine. Have to say I'm very surprised.
If you don't actively use your phone I guess it's a nice purchase. I can't complain about the camera, and it gets the job done.
However, do mind the low memory capacity (less than 32GB and you can't add any memory card) and battery problems. Oh, and the overheating issues. You could probably cook an egg with it. The bright side: you have a portable microwave.

I kinda regret selling it. Beautiful and well capable phone even to this day, except for the battery issue of course.

khub, 30 Dec 2019please is the phone still ok in 2019/2020, for light usage? i am... moreIf you are buying a brand new phone it will be ok for moderate daily usage.
Just dont expect what you dont pay, I mean it is not fast and slick as S10 but it is stable, reliable and gets jobs done. Mine is like 5 yrs now and still in everyday use with original battery inside which would be nice to replace.

used this phone for 5,6 months as a backup phone in 2019. except terrible battery, everything was good. decent camera and no performance issue (not for heavy and smooth gaming). although i dont like samsung much. but i have to admit, s6 screen is still better than 95% of the phones today

Battery drain is REALLY bad, like 10% in 10 minutes during light usage. I wonder if changing the battery will solve the problem because it's still a damn good phone to this day, did some of you do the same and what's it like with a new battery?
