Galaxy S6 was released in April, to start with it comes in with more better features and body. Starting with the body Samsung has changed its back of the body from plastic to glass back, not only this aluminum edges have also been introduced. The dimensions of this latest smartphone are 5.65 x 2.78 x 0.27 inches and it weighs about approximately 140 g to the nearest 10th digit. If you are looking for a slimmer phone. That’s not it, it now has a Gorilla Glass 4 back panel plus this one takes on the Nano SIM along with fingerprint sensor. The world slimmest smart phone also support the Nano SIM.
Now hovering over to the specs of Samsung Galaxy S6 we have a Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, the screen size is slightly above 5 inches and this one provides a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. On the inside we have an Android 5.0.2 Lollipop operating system and it is a quad core 1.5/2.1 GHz. But there is no card slot available instead it comes with internal storage of 32/64/128 GB and almost forgot to mention this one has 3GB RAM. 
Samsung Galaxy S6 has a camera of 16 MP, the features include GEO tagging, touch focus, face detection and Auto HDR. In the sound system Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with a loud speaker and a 3.5mm jack is also included and at last coming onto its battery which is not removable is a Li-Ion 2550 mAh one.
According to user’s experience the camera quality is exceptional also it seems faster to them. The phone is almost as light as an IPhone even though it has a bigger than that plus it has a good display quality which makes it even better.
In general the Samsung Galaxy S6 is a perfect competitor to the IPhone 6 and 6 Plus although IPhone took the lead in the screen size but still this one is cheaper and focuses more onto the specs. The price of Galaxy S6 starts about $700.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 :

Samsung Galaxy Note 4
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was released in October 2014 and has managed to attract a large part of community towards it. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a stylish smart phone with slightly curved edges and it comes along with a S Pen (Stylus) . This product of Samsung was first announced in September 2014. The Note 4 supports a Micro SIM card and has with it a finger-print sensor. 
Describing it we can first of all take a look at the weight of the Galaxy Note 4 which is about 176 grams and its dimensions are as follows : 6.04 x 3.09 x 0.33 inches. This Samsung product does not only have the attractive looks but it also has good features which make customers want to have it. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 as in case with the S6 also has a super AMOLED capacitive touch screen along with the 16M colors.
If we compare the screen size of Note 4 with the previous S6 we would come to notice that the this one has a screen which is bigger, to be exact the screen size is 5.7 inches and its resolution is 1440 x 2560 pixels, not only this but multi-touch is also available and it includes Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. Again the operating system of this smart phone is also Android but it has a 4.4 KitKat version which can be further upgraded to a 5.0.1 Lollipop version.
Coming onto the inside, its chipset is Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 and it is also a quad-core mobile and this just keeps on getting more better since it has a processor of 2.7 GHz and this one includes a micro SD card slot plus an internal storage of 32 GB, still remembering it’s ram which is 3 GB now this ram is a similarity between S6 and Note 4. 
Galaxy Note 4 has a camera of 16 MP and features include optical image stabilization, LED Flash plus auto-focus. We can expect the picture quality to be good in this case since the pixels are 5312 x 2988. The smart phone also includes alert features which are basically vibration, MP3 or WAV ringtones. Obviously we have a loudspeaker and 3.5mm jack available in this case as well.
 Other things included are a GPS system, an infrared port along with a micro-usb slot available, but too bad it does not have a radio availability. Good point is sensors such as heart rate and accelerometer are also included. That’s not the end for it, it has availability of quick charging, air gestures and some other features are also included. Battery type for this smart phone is Li Ion 3220 mAh which enables it to give a battery timing on 20 hours in case of talk time and 82 hours for playing music.
Coming back to the appearance we will now have a word about the colors in which it is available, these are white, black, bronze-gold and pink. Talking about its price that is about $713 (American Dollars) and well that’s all there is to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

Samsung Grand Prime :

Samsung Grand Prime
Well Samsung Grand Prime is more of an economical smart phone made for those who want good features in low costs, even though this mobile is not that much highly enriched with the exact features as those found in the other galaxy series but still this one is quite elegant in its own way.   
The Samsung Grand Prime after being announced in September was made available for purchase in October. This is a smart phone which is lighter than the ones we have previously mentioned, it weight about 156 grams however the main reason seems its screen size which is 5 inches. The dimensions of this phone are 5.70 x 2.84 x 0.34 inches and the unique thing is that it supports dual SIM’s. This smart phone does not support Nano SIM’s though but rather micro-SIM, it’s still fair. Grand Prime does not have an LED screen, alternatively it has a TFT touch screen (capacitive) and 16M colors. Talking about resolution which is 540 x 960 pixels with multi-touch also made available.
Prime attains Android operating system while the version is 4.4.4 KitKat with Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410, which is the chip-set. Again we are seeing a quad-core phone however with a 1.2 GHz processor but it is reasonable. The GPU is Adreno 306. Making our way to its memory which is 8 GB internal along with the 1 GB ram and this smart phone supports micro SD of up to 64 GB. 
The main camera is of 8 MP which has a resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels, here the auto-focus and LED flash are still available. Looking on to the features of the camera, the noticeable ones are geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection and panorama. Samsung Grand Prime also has a second camera which is of 5 MP. 
The loudspeaker and the 3.5mm jack are again included plus the alert types which are WAV ringtones, vibration and MP3, so as we see these are same for all three the prime, S6 and Note 4. Well Samsung Grand Prime supports FM radio along with the GPS. Other features included are the accelerometer, proximity and compass so Prime is actually quite decent in specs as well. 
It consists of a Li Ion 2600 mAh battery which provides the user with a talk time of about 17 hours while it allows playing music for about 75 hours. In its color range we have 3 colors available, you can guess them quite easily, these are white, grey and golden, there should have been a black one included also but turns out it’s not an option. The Grand Prime gets 7 out of 10 using statistics available to us.

Comparing Samsung GALAXY S6, NOTE 4, Grand Prime and S5 :

In this section, we would compare designs, features and specs of these Samsung Smart phones, starting with the body we can see that the Galaxy Note 4 takes the lead over here as the S6 and Grand Prime have nearly about the same screen sizes. However at this stage Nexus 6 can be also seen as a choice if you want some good screen size.

Talking about S6 and S6 edge, these do not have that much extremely distinct features, so that is why we would not focus much onto S6 edge. Only Grand Prime has a camera which is 8 MP while the rest two are set equally as previously mentioned, although other sound related features are the same for all three mobiles. 
Putting some light onto the Android versions, we can notice that Samsung’s S6 has a plus point in this case, the Note 4 has a KitKat version although that is upgradable while the one in Prime does not seem to be upgradable. One noticeable point is that S6 does not have a card slot while that has been included in the latter ones, so in this case we can give some credit to the latter ones. 
Comparing like this can rather seem to be boring so we would now be straight-forward in what we want to actually say. According to what we have talked about in this post, we have come to the conclusion that if you have budget and want a quality smart phone you should probably choose the Galaxy Note 4 over the S6, since it has a good long lasting battery as well, on the other side if you do not want to over-spend on a smart phone then you can choose the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime, it might not be highly competitive to the ones mentioned above but still it cannot be degraded as it is a decent model as well.
