I've had a Huawei and it only lasted for only 2 months than after that it got slower and slower. It's cheap Chinese shit. Huawei didn't invent 6inch phones Samsung,Sony,lg and htc invented them way before useless Huawei.
I thought that the note 1 was the original phone who made it big??? long before huawei even existed
This is the best stuff from Samsung... Better choice than iPhone6 Plus
if A series come with android 6, samsung will simply rule the midrange market for next 6 months. From gamers to developers, everyone will go for these phones. Samsung should not cannibalize this midrange market for flagships.... Flagship buyer will anyway buy flagship. Mass of software ecosystem is more important than hardware to bind consumers in your services.
Not. Its a flop. Android 5 is a very bad decision. 6 inch phone market is very small. To make it more compelling, it should have android 6. And further, a month later at mwc, more models will come. So why give android 5 to mid range customers? Won't those custumers go to other companies?

No one knows how to go 'big' like Samsung. Samsung is the very definition of 'largeness'. Let's see if Huawei can make something like Galaxy View without borrowing Samsung technology.
I voted for Hot, though I am not interested as its a midrange phone and the screen to body is still not enough for me to consider this, but good attempt.
i am getting it in either black or gold. i'll be searching for a 128gb class 10 90mbs micro sd to pop in. this is my january birthday gift to myself. does it have a notification led up top. plz do
manoj, 03 Jan 2016Not hot at all !! why so much bezel at the top and bottom on an 6 incher device ? it's so heav... moreA9 is the most compact 6 inch phone with about 76% screen to body ratio. So has smallest bezels.

Competition is great. I agree that Samsung is a premium brand and they should charge more than some Chinese manufacturers but not twice more than Meizu or Xiaomi. There are a lot of great phones nowadays that high price cannot be justified by the name itself.
Only two coroners keeps me away from buying this -
1. Screen size should have been 5 or 5.2 inch(Super AMOLED 1080P Display)
2. Very IMP removable battery.
Rest of the specs are great.
