Unlike the Galaxy S5, Samsung’s latest flagships are not water-resistant. It’s not that Samsung just forgot to announce this feature, either; the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge really do not like water — as demonstrated in the video below.

CyanogenMod fans with a Galaxy S5 can now get their hands on an unofficial CM 12.1 ROM based on Google’s latest Lollipop firmware. Compatible with both the international and CDMA models, the ROM brings everything you would expect to get with an Android 5.1 upgrade.

Samsung’s love affair with cheap, tacky plastic is on hold for its stunning new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

Unveiled today at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the new handsets pull out all the stops in an effort to reverse Samsung’s declining smartphone sales and mount a new challenge against Apple’s most popular iPhones to date.

They sport all-new designs made out of premium materials, and vastly improved software that promises a better user experience. But they aren’t without their own compromises.

It's better than the real thing.

Samsung’s handy Toolbox feature, which made its debut inside Android 4.4 KitKat on the Galaxy S5, hasn’t really been reproduced inside other Android skins — not even Samsung’s latest devices have adopted it. But now you can get a third-party clone on almost any Android device.

Samsung’s major overhaul of the Galaxy S6 won’t stop at a brand-new design and vastly improved software. We’re also expecting the best internal components available, including a new rear-facing camera that will have a 20-megapixel sensor and optical image stabilization.

Of course, Samsung won’t confirm that until its Unpacked event on March 1, but the South Korean company has promised that you’ll get effortlessly “amazing pictures” from the Galaxy S6.
