2015's Samsung Galaxy S6 remains a fantastic phone that can still compete with many of this year's flagships.
Samsung's Galaxy S6 was a return to form for the Korean manufacturer after a slightly underwhelming Galaxy S5. The S6 replaced the S5's plastic body with a glass and metal construction and improved the camera and screen, although did sacrifice the removable battery and MicroSD card slot in order to make it happen.

Samsung Galaxy S6 review
"The Galaxy S6 was one of the first "flagship" smartphones released in 2015, but it has held its ground in performance terms over the year, even as we’ve seen competing flagship products come to market."
