SAMSUNG GALAXY S6 VS HTC ONE M9 : WHICH ONE SHOULD YOU GET ?

Sunday, 1 March 2015

SAMSUNG GALAXY S6 & S6 EDGE ANNOUNCED



Samsung unveiled its latest addition to its Galaxy series in the shape of S6, with 5.1 inches of  Quad Hd Display and Exynos processor, better low light camera and video capability, gorilla glass on the back and front with metal frame and built in battery.

Display

Samsung Galaxy S6 has 5.1 inches of Super Amoled Quad HD Display with 577 pixels per inch which people expecting from the new flagship from Samsung and finally we have got a better display on S6 not even that its also a first device to feature that much pixel density. On the other hand S6 Edge has same display but its display curves from both side and make it a unique phone in the market with these type of high display specs. 

Hardware:

S6 & S6 Edge are powered with mighty Exynos 7420 chip which is build on 14nm processor and 3gbs LDDR 4 ram which offcourse brings more power on the device as compared to many high end hand sets in the market. Its also packed with Mali-T760 MP8 gpu that supports hardware tessellation and gives you better graphics performance while playing games.

Design

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are same in design, but at some extent they are different from each other as Edge curves from both sides with Corning Gorilla Glass 4, whereas S6 is packed with straight glass on the front. S6 & Edge have metal frame on the sides but these metal frame are more visible on S6 rather than Edge because most area of Edge is covered with its glass. However, a good thing is their build quality from the back side because this time Samsung have put a Gorilla glass at the back side of these devices and eliminated a plastic cover found on their Galaxy flag ships to make them a premium build quality phones.


Software

S6 will comes up with Android Lollipop 5.0 and Samsung Touch Wiz with some of the extra and clean features as compared to S5, but all other features remains the same like  Ultra Power Saving Mode which will enable your device last up to 20hrs on standby, if your battery goes at 10%, kide mode, private mode and many more motion sensors. Moreover one of the great features is a fast battery charging of the phone because when you connect your phone with charger for 10 minutes you phone will give you a 4 hrs of battery timing which is really quick and fast enough to handle all day long busy life. Its now also capable of making payments from phone on the go with NFC capabilities and Samsung Payment feature. 

Internal Storage


There is 32GB of built-in storage in the device, but you can buy 64gbs and 128gbs variant of both phones and there is a option to put a sd card on these devices as well.

Connectivity

S6 packs Advanced 4G LTE connectivity, NFC, Bluetooth,  Ultra Wifi (this is the fastest wifi speed you can get on your phones, GPS, AGPS, Wifi Tethering and packs all other connectivity options that we have on S4.

Battery

Samsung Galaxy S6 is equipped with 2550 MAh battery while Edge is powered with 2600 MAh batttery which seems to me 200 MAh lower than the power of S5, but it has very fast charging capability and give you 4hrs of battery timing with only 10 minutes of charging which is really good and this time its also supports wireless charging . However, it would be much better if they have tipped it with 3000 MAh.

Camera

S6 has 16 MP camera at the back which is capable of recording 1080p (4k) videos at 30 Fps which is big improvement in terms of video recording and camera as now it has the capability of capturing photos and videos in low lightning condition in normal settings. Another good thing about S6 is its 5mp front camera with better lense which will offcourse help out users in taking self shots in low lightning conditions as well as supports fast auto focus to catch moving things more quicker. 

Final Verdict

To give my final verdict we are going to use a SWOT analysis below

Strength

S6 packs a eye catching  5.1 inches of Quad Hd display with 577 pixels per inch, Finger Print Sensor with fast mobile payments through NFC, Heart Rate Sensor with mute sensor, metal frame with glass on the back and front and as well as it has very nice back and 5Mp front facing camera to capture photos and videos in low light conditions. Moreover it has fast charging capabilities which off course more eye catching for busy users and as well as it has fast processor and Gpu with LDDR 3gbs of ram

Weakness

I have not find out any main weakness in the phone at all the things seems to me good as now a phone is a premium build  quality phone with many extra features. However nothing is 100% perfect in the world and may be when we will have our hand on phone slowly and steady we will see some of the weaknesses.

Opportunity

S6 and Edge can avail lot of opportunity in the market as these phones have premium build quality as well as they are powered with Exynos 7420 processor with 14nm which makes them better than Snapdragon 810 processor that is built on 20nm processor and found out on many of its competitor like Z4 and Htc One M9.

Threats

The biggest threat to Samsung Galaxy S6 is M9  and Sony Xperia Z4 and many more devices that release in 2015. 

Samsung Galaxy S6  is expected to fall on shelves on 10th April, price is not confirmed yet

If you have not found CF Auto Root file for you Note 4 Variant then you can directly go to CF Auto Root Site and search for your Model CF Auto Root Files from a below link

CF AUTO ROOT SITE: http://autoroot.chainfire.eu/


After downloading CF-Auto-Root for your Note 4, extract it using winrar and you will get 3 files like a below picture, but you have to ignore two odin files because we have already installed odin in our system. However if you have not installed odin then install odin in your PC.






STEP 1:

Now once you have installed a Samsung Kies and open it with your Note 3 connected with your computer,  it will automatically detect your phone and install all the necessary hardware of your phone in your computer. When you connect your phone with your pc it will look like a below picture in Samsung Kies.





After doing this step, make sure you have closed down a Samsung Kies as well as you have disconnected your phone from computer.


STEP 2:


After installing drivers through Samsung Kies  you have to open Odin. Now from a ODIN Folder you have to press a third file which is Odin3 (Run as Administrator and make sure your phone is disconnected from computer). After opening it you will see a window like below picture.





After opening this Odin file you have to turn off your Note 3 by pressing power on and off key on your Note 3 until its get completely off. Once it gets completely off PRESS (POWER ON AND OFF KEY + HOME BUTTON + VOLUME DOWN KEY AT THE SAME TIME). This will get you in to a downloading mode like a below picture in your phone.

Now when you see a above window connect your Note 4 with your pc through micro usb lead and you will see a below picture like window on your PC




Here you can witness that Odin (Id-com) section has become blue in above picture. Now you have to press PDA in Odin and you have to search for a file CF-Auto-Root-trlte-trltedt-smn910g.tar (if you are on different variant than you will have something else instead of smn910f) which is in your downloaded CF-Auto folder.  Look at below picture to see how this file looks like




Now double tap on the file it will be added to Odin and press Start in Odin and leave your phone as it is. After starting a process you will see a window like below picture in your phone with downloading bar and then let process to go complete until your phone get restarted (make sure you dont touch your phone unless its restarted

                                           


In your PC you will see a picture like below in Odin



Green Box will be highlighted in Odin just above the blue box which illustrates that you have did all the things correct. After your phone restarted you will see Super User  in your mobile which means you have successfully rooted your phone :), like below picture

HOW TO UNROOT


Its very easy to Unroot Note 4 after rooting it. Make sure you have installed proper drivers by installing Kies on your PC. If you have followed my steps to root your device, you must have all the drivers installed by now. If you have not did rooting by looking at the above tutorial, then just have a quick go at Rooting process (Step 1). To unroot  your Note 4  you need three things which are going to take little bit longer than rooting your phone. 

1. Download a firmware  for Note 3 from sam mobile site: 

http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-N910G/XSP/
When you press the above link you will see a window like a below picture to download a Note 4 firmware.









This site needs registration, but registration is free and after that you can download a firmware. This file is going to take a little bit more time to download because file size is around 1.8 giga bytes. 

After downloading a file you have to extract it using a winrar and after extracting it you will find two files inside a folder like below picture


No here again you have to open Odin to unroot your device





Now shut down your device and after shutting down your mobile Press Power On Key + Home Button + Down Volume key at the same time and you will see a  window like like below picture on your phone 

                                    
  


Now here you have to press Up Volume Key to continue and you will be entered in a window like below picture  

                                        


Now connect your phone with PC and open Odin in your PC (Run as Administrator) and Odin first box will go sky blue like a below picture, if you have successfully installed all the drivers. Make sure you have closed Samsung Kies in your PC.





Now press PDA  to find out your downloaded Note 3 Firmware which you have downloaded from Sam mobile (make sure you have extracted the file using winrar). Your firmware should be look like a below picture on your PC. Make sure only two things are ticked in Odin: Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time like a below picture when you add a firmware to ODIN.





Now press start and if Odin gives you a message dont responding like a below picture now worries because its going to respond after taking its time 






Now when its start responding you will see a below like picture on your Pc and Phone, dont touch anything now

                             






After all the downloading process get complete you will see a picture like below in your PC and your phone will be restarted automatically.





Now you have to make a backup of your files  using Samsung Kies, so you will not loose your internal storage files, if you have saved all the things in your external sd card no worries. After making a backup, power off your phone and Press Power Key + Up Volume Key + Home Button at the same time and you will see a below like picture on your phone.






Now here from down volume key go to wipe data/ factory reset and press power button. Now you will see a below like picture 






Now use down volume key again and select Yes--delete user data by pressing power button
and  below picture like window comes up and here you have to press reboot system now by pressing power  key. Now reboot will take little bit longer because we are installing a firmware. Thats it you have successfully unrooted your device, claim your warranty or else sell your phone if you want to :).
