Wiki Info: Rumours surrounding the Galaxy S5’s successor began to surface in January 2015, it was reported that Samsung would be using an in-house Exynos system-on-chip rather than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 on the S6 due to concerns surrounding overheating. Later that month, Qualcomm affirmed in an earnings report that its products would not be included in ” large customer’s flagship device”. Fellow competitor LG Electronics disputed the allegations surrounding the 810; although demo units of the 810-equipped LG G Flex 2 at Consumer Electronics Show experienced signs of possible overheating, the company emphasized that they were pre-release models.

Final Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy S6 was the first smartphone to work with the Gear VR headset and is still compatible with almost all Gear VR apps and games. Even the new Gear VR motion controller works with it. But sadly some of the more graphically heavy games and apps to have a tendency to overheat this phone within mere minutes. So do make sure you get a Gear VR fan to keep your phone cool. It was my first Samsung phone and one of the very best. Even using it for several years I never had any complains while using it as my daily driver.
