It was Samsung’s biggest and best phone ever, and it has been plagued with constant issues since its launch in 2013.
The Galaxy S5 was also released in the same year, and its problems were similarly well documented.
The S6’s launch has seen the device get some great updates and, thanks to a series of software updates, it has finally landed on the Android 7.0 Nougat OS, which is arguably more stable than Android Marshmallow.
However, Samsung’s software has only just hit the big 3.1 update, which has been rolled out to the Galaxy S7, and this has led to the biggest issue the company has faced for the last year.
So why is Samsung’s latest flagship still suffering?
The biggest reason is battery life.
The company has consistently claimed that the Galaxy Note7 battery lasted for two days and eight hours on a single charge, but we’ve now tested this claim against the devices that are currently on sale.
Samsung claims that the S6 has a battery life of “around 7 hours” when we used the phone for three days.
While this is a fairly accurate statement, it’s still way short of what most people would be expected to get out of a phone with such a powerful processor and the Galaxy’s biggest screen.
That said, Samsung has kept its word, with the Galaxy A7, S7 and S7 Edge being the only phones to get around 7 hours out of their batteries when we tested them over a single day.
It’s important to note that we’ve used the S7 as a benchmark because it’s not a high-end device.
It can’t compete with the best flagship phones, such as the iPhone 7 Plus or the Galaxy Nexus, but the S5 and S6 are the most powerful and powerful phones on the market.
It should be noted that the battery life claims of the S8 and S9 were made in September, while the S9 is currently on its way to the market, so it’s more accurate to say that the performance claims of this phone are closer to those of the Galaxy 5, which was the first phone to come with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
However that’s not to say we’re not interested in using the S10 as a high performance phone, because we absolutely are.
If Samsung were to come out with a flagship phone that could hold its own against the iPhone, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, then we’d be excited about buying it.
We don’t think it’s realistic that Samsung could make a flagship that would make up for its battery woes.
If it’s going to make a high end phone, it needs to be a high quality phone.
And it’s the quality that will decide whether you’ll be able to justify buying this phone.
We’ve got some more phones that we think are as good as or better than the Galaxy 10.
We think the S1 is one of the best smartphones ever, so the Galaxy 9 is definitely worth a look, as is the HTC 10, LG G6, OnePlus 5, Sony Xperia Z1, Motorola Moto G, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Samsung Edge.
