One noticeable feature is missing from the Galaxy S6 and that is its IP certification. This smartphone is not resistant to dust and water, and we couldn’t care less. Adding this feature to the Galaxy S5 made it wider, fatter and heavier. It made it ugly. Those interested in tough credentials can pursue one of Samsung’s Galaxy Active smartphones, or better still, Sony’s Xperia Z3.
Samsung has gone from making the least desirable flagship to the ‘must have’ phone. How hard it must have been to concede the company’s older tricks were not working and that it was time for change.
The design needed change, and now it is at the forefront of the smartphone market. The hardware remains as innovative as ever, but it now works better with software that is easier to use.
A critical point was when the company had to recognise not everyone is going to be happy if it is to make the best phone in the world. Few people would dislike the lack of expandable storage, a removable battery or missing tough credentials. This is the price the company made to make a smartphone the masses can love.
Change would’ve had to ripple throughout the company’s many divisions. Five years of tradition and custom forsaken so that it could start again. And in recognising its priorities had to change to put customer needs first, Samsung revealed its greatest strength.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
