Samsung Galaxy S6 Quick Review: The Samsung Galaxy S6, right now when I am writing this, is available for the best price of Rs. 37,900 on an online shopping website. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is the most beautiful and the best performing phone in the Galaxy S-series from the house of Samsung. We might just call it the best android phone of 2015. The Galaxy S6 is blazing fast, well built and it has a brilliant screen.


Samsung has made some welcome changes to its usually boring TouchWiz. The fingerprint scanner on the S6 sees significant improvement and the addition of the heart-rate scanner in the device comes as a very good addition. The Galaxy S6 comes with a faster wireless charging technology. In addition, the recent price drops have made the S6 a total dealmaker.

The exclusion of the microSD and removable battery option from the device might just hurt a lot of Galaxy fans.

Sony Xperia Z3 Plus Quick Review:

The Sony Xperia Z3 Plus looks very much similar to its predecessor; the Xperia Z3 and does not offer much improvement too. The few changes that are evident in the phone are in the department of optics and the device is rugged.

The fact that goes against the device is that there are other smartphones in the market that offer better specifications and features at a lower price. The Xperia Z3 + looks more of like a filler before Sony comes up with the new flagship device.


Though with the few changes, Sony Xperia Z3+ classifies as a great, high performing phone and the best yet from the house of Sony. But Sony’s rivals offer better hardware and software presently. The complaints of heating issue do more harm to the reputation of the device.

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Plus: Final Verdict

In my usage of both the devices, I have felt that the Samsung Galaxy S6 sports a better camera, gives an improved performance, and the software is better. The Sony Xperia Z3+ has few benefits in the department of battery life, being water resistant, and the microSD support but these few strengths are not as strong as what the Galaxy S6 offers. Moreover, one cannot ignore the fact that the Xperia Z3 + Plus is much more expensive. Therefore, for me in this Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Plus battle, the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes out bruised but clearly victorious.
