People can't help but compare the Samsung Galaxy S5 to the Galaxy S6.

Samsung Galaxy S5 received negative reviews because of its plastic rear-cover to "nothing-knew" upgrades. The device was expected to have exceptional features compared to its predecessors.

On the other hand, the Galaxy S6 is made of metal and Corning Gorilla Glass 4. When natural lights strike the device, it creates a colorful visual texture, which is kind of cool. Samsung Galaxy S6 will be running Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
