Samsung is going to fail in 2 ,3 years, Because of wrong decisions they are making.
I'd like to see them try this just to see the fallout (of both the comments and their sales). Do it samsung.
SAMSUNG come on now if us as being samsung users would want an non-removeable battery, I'm pretty sure that we would have gone with an apple product. Every year we are looking for something to WOW us not turn us from what we like. I was ready to hear about the release date so i could get my GS6, i might as well go and get the Iphone 6 plus........ just saying
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2015glass back panel + non-removable battery = fail.
Samsung should learn from Sony's mistake ... moreLet's hope at least Sony will learn from their misstake and replace Samsung as a quality manufacturer. But that doesn't seem likely, unfortunately. All companies are insane and not only don't learn from their misstakes, but "fix" them with even more misstakes.
Well thanks, if you don't want to make a good phone, then i'll stick to the cheap crap (The expensive is still crap anyway). And that's only if my old phone breaks. Otherwise, i'll just keep using it
glass back panel + non-removable battery = fail.
Samsung should learn from Sony's mistake with its glass back panel and non-removable battery.
nobody is going to buy that.
really glass at back? i would prefere to wait for galaxy xcover 3 with steel frames
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2015The glass is the WORST material for any phone. It's even worse than the metal.
The plastic ... moreI do agree.
It is a deal breaker!
I will not buy such a phone, for sure.
I had to replace the battery 3 times for my previous Samsung phone.
If the phone has either a glass back or a non-removable battery, I will not buy it.
Glass back panel!
I am 100% sure, it would fail!
It would be a disaster for all Samsung fans.
many of my friends, tend to buy S6, But now, I am sure we should think of buying another phone.
WOW WTF, even worse than aluminium. Full fashionphone mode imminent...
epdm, 19 Jan 2015They should have kept the S-line as it is. Plastic has better reception, is more durable ag... moreThe unfortunate thing for companies is that a whole of people tend to go for looks, which is what sells. They simply has to hopefully lose "some" loyal customers and win back more shallow users.

Material does not matter. Looks should change to premium. User replaceable battery is very good indeed.
Just change the looks of handset to premium. All Samsung phones have same looks,which is absurd.

The plastic is the best.
Anyway, if a phone has non-removable battery or glass back, it's a deal breaker.
I don't mind glass back panel but non-removable battery is a serious problem. Had to buy batteries for my last 2 samsung phones and additional battery for another samsung that belongs to a relative of mine.
Anonynous, 19 Jan 2015Ok anything as long as theres non removable battery, Samsung have to stop living in last decad... moreThe only reason for manufacturers to seal phones, thereby effectively making them irreparable is to let customers pay heavily for repairs in case of accidental damage or cheap replacement of parts such as the battery. It's just a cheap excuse to make you pay more in the end.
Anonynous, 19 Jan 2015Ok anything as long as theres non removable battery, Samsung have to stop living in last decad... morewell you may not have the necessity for a removable battery,but it is a MUST for power users or people who go on hiking,adventures or travel a lot.

And metal phones get much hotter when used medium/heavily, as well as they are much colder during winter (like right now). I'm sensitive to those facts.
