Samsung made a lot of bold moves in the run up to the Galaxy S6 launch at Mobile World Congress in March, including a shake-up in its phone division's management and design teams to completely rethink its handset offering.
The Galaxy S6 unveiling showed, on paper, that the move paid off, and Samsung has loaded the handset with new technologies and software features.

10. New design
The fairly cheap-feeling polycarbonate designs of past Samsung handsets have been a constant sticking point, and many buyers feel that they lack the premium feel and allure of competing Apple, Sony and HTC handsets.
Aware of the complaints Samsung radically changed its design practices with the Galaxy S6. Specifically, Samsung borrowed design elements from Apple and Sony and loaded the Galaxy S6 with metal sides and Gorilla Glass back and front.
In bid to further allay buyers' build quality concerns Samsung promised that the metal used in the Galaxy S6 is 50 percent stronger than in other high-end smartphone cases and "unlike other smartphones, will not bend".
The design isn't the most original on the market, but it's a definite step up from past Samsung handsets and is a key selling point for the Galaxy S6.
