Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 active: What's the difference?

45
Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 active

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 active look very different, but in reality they're almost the same phone.

Of course at first glance you wouldn't guess much about these two phones is shared beyond the name and manufacturer — one with metal and glass all around it, and the other looking like it belongs in a tool belt. But actually, the Galaxy S6 active is nearly identical inside to its flagship predecessor, with just a couple of spec changes underneath the hardened exterior that sets it apart.

Want to know all of the differences between the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 active? We have you covered — read on.

The year of Android Wear — An Android Central Roundtable

18
Android Wear watches

Android Wear — Google's operating system for wearables — is more than a year old. But in the tech world, a year can seem like an eternity. Or at least time enough to see a healthy leap from one generation to the next, whether we're talking about hardware, or software, or both.

There are currently seven Android Wear watches in the wild, with five of them still available for purchase directly from Google. The LG Watch Urbane, ASUS ZenWatch, LG G Watch R, Sony SmartWatch 3, Moto 360, Samsung Gear Live, and LG G Watch. They range from bland displays on your wrist to timepieces that could well pass for a decent-looking analog watch. They're still very much the first generation of Android Wear hardware, though the software has progressed quite a bit in their lifetime.

So let's take a look back at the past year of Android Wear, and where it stands for us, the editors of Android Central.
