The S6 had an extremely poor repairability (just check iFixIt), just getting the glass back off is a pain. I doubt many service centers will accept having the S6 for battery replacement, or if they do will either do it poorly (they'll probably break the glass back or won't get it back on properly) or charge really high prices. And looking at it, the Note 5 is probably gonna be a pain to have teh battery replaced.
I'm not really impressed by these results, the note series was always much faster than the S series, they should have given the exynos in the note 5 a slight over clock...
Bunyip22, 16 Aug 2015I use a spare battery about once a month on average. My typical situations using spare batteri... moreLong haul=Most do.
long car trips= illegal to use phone whilst driving, The whole world is using the phone from a cradle in their car windscreen or dash, pick it up , put it back,simple. Cable is long, and this applies to any make. Question ?, do you now drive illegally, you swap batteries, and keep picking up your phone whilst driving, no, then you keep pulling up and stopping, no, ..get a cradle, no matter who's phone you buy, Fun ?
camping trips= you can carry a spare battery, and unless you carry 12 of them , your second one will run out, use the room of the second battery in your rucksack for a neat powerpack, whilst your walking or setting up camp , if your second battery isnt inconvenient in you rucksack neither is a ppack and, with fast charge and the ppack containing more than one charge,it will take no more room than 2 xtra batteries.
storm outage=Power pack would have given you more than 12 hours
Mountain biking/hiking=no phone company designs their phones with this use in mind, and rightly so, but if a little tiny cheap effective gps unit is orff the menu, then a well endowed powerpack, velcro-ed, underneath the bike frame wil give way better service than any second battery. Hiking and back pack were made for each other, fit young thing like yourself, could carry a truck battery in their, let alone a neat slim hi cap, ppack.
Battery life tends to degrade=your spot on here, but, as I'm still using my note 1 battery every day, (I have bought a second one, in case they become unobtainable, when the original chucks it, but, jet, gs1, gs2 and our 2 n1's and s3 are still on their original oem batteries without probs, well one note is beginning to show its age, but the queen is on and off it , all day and evening.), your right about a quick purchase, of a second battery, but our experience, shows if you change your phone every 2/3 years, you aren't going to need one, and if its defective, get it switched out.
Plus its good to know, all your , "i" , friends are in the same boat.

Anonymous, 16 Aug 2015No they can't be excused! Because those 64GB and 128GB devices will be ridiculously expensive ... moreNon of these invented gripes fill the internet on apples behalf, who have been doing it since the beginning. This is just being BIGGED up as an anti sales tactic. Go on the apple sites with this tack, and see if their Pr guys , mingling in with joe public, will let you get away with your sd and battery supposed argument's. If what you are saying is true, DONT buy apple or samsung. Well, that's removed @80% of the market for you, your new choice of phone should be quite easy now , shouldn't it.
Bunyip22, 16 Aug 2015:-).... and it looks pretty (almost like an iphone)And...the white iphone 6+, looks just like my white note 1 in its slim black case, only with a round home button, and , biiiiiig ugly bezels, what low speck tripe, A , turned out, just to try and get part of the phablet market, SAMSUNG CREATED.
Orch, 16 Aug 2015Wait 1 more month and all of these will be crushed by iPhone6s. YAAAAThe only thing crushed, will be your head, by the i6 home button lag.

Please include single core Geekbench results as well!
They are the single best indicator of actual application performance.
Just wait . Samsung will sell GN4 and GN5 almost same price in near future ... Coz after releasing note 5, demand for note 4 increased ..
