Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge Get MS Office Apps In Latest Update

September 17, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones are the company’s flagship phones for 2015. Samsung has also introduced the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus phablets last month, and now basically has four flagship devices out in the market. That being said, as you all know, Samsung always puts the company’s TouchWiz UI on top of Android when their devices are concerned, and neither of the aforementioned devices is an exception to this rule. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones have been available in the market for quite some time now, and Samsung has decided to push a new update to these two phones, an update some people might not like, read on.

The company’s TouchWiz UI was, for a long time, considered to be filled with bloatware. Samsung has improved upon that when they release the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, but the skin is still heavier than some people want it to be. Well, the latest update certainly won’t make that any less true considering Samsung is pushing out a new update which brings several Microsoft applications to these two handsets. The build number is LMY47X.G925FXXU2COH2, and it weighs approximately 220MB. The update will install Microsoft Office applications for Android on your Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge device, including mobile versions of Word, PowerPoint, OneNote and Excel. Some people might appreciate these inclusions, but the vast majority probably will not. Users can always install these apps if they want, and forcing them to have them installed on their devices and use up the phone’s storage might not be the best idea Samsung has had recently.

The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets sport quite similar specifications. The major difference between these two devices is the general build, the Galaxy S6 is a rather regular looking smartphones, while the S6 Edge sports a curved display on both its left and right side. The devices are powered by the Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core SoC, and they pack in 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The 16-megapixel OIS camera is available on the back of these two phones, and Android Lollipop comes pre-installed on them with the aforementioned TouchWiz UI placed on top of Google’s OS.
