Anonymous, 27 Jun 2015But it does matter to a lot of people still. Though it is also indeed enough for the average personYeh even i wud love to have micro sd card slot but not at the cost of performance (with 3rd party microsd cards phone goes a little slow and yeh i know there r good quality micro sd cards but it still does not make a big diffrence) and usability ( like moving app data to sd card is not allowed in android without root) hope note5 has some decent solution to this problem may be a internal 64 or 128gb model with a microsd card slot all of that without making a compromise with phone speed.i know i am asking too much but again i am the end user.

I'm surprised that nobody ask: is this can go snorkeling on beach?
Listed as salt resistant, does it include sea water anybody know?

But these can be happened to all smartphone even with removable sd card if u dont trust the service center. In that case, u have to think of other ways to protect ur private data such as using applock.

I can live with the processing power of even the S2. I don't really need superfast devices, maybe you can help to add this series using you S6, 1+1/2+1/3+1/4+1/5+..., let's see. thanks in advance.

Was OTG supported in S5 Active by the way? IF not, then its not likely supported in S6 Active either.

My experience is since the first Galaxy Note. I even connected an external HDD, but you need to format it to exFAT format. But any USB thumb drive can work. I have a spare 120GB SSD, but I don't see the point as I can always get a micro SD card if I really need to carry that much data on the go.

You seems to assume it, but I nothing in the review or the specs indicate that. OTG on a 32GB phone without SD-card is a dealbreaker for me.
Is this can stand sea water? I look everywhere but GSM Arena won't say.
It just stated salt resistance. Does that include snorkeling activity?

If these businesses gave costumers all the things that they want and need at a good price, no businesses will be alive today. Also how does that make Samsung greedy and milking costumers, when its the costumers choice to buy samsung products and there are other alternatives to chose from like sony, htc and LG who also makes SD card support? yet costumers still prefers samsung S6? and that makes samsung greedy now? and plz dont reply back if your gonna tell me a stupid reason.

Looks ... moreI do know the new internal solid state drive in the S6 is blazing fast, but I don't see your point of not needing a memory expansion. Even if I do get the highest capacity, it won't still be enough. I'd get a 128GB model and still want a high capacity expansion of 128GB micro SD card which can do 80mbps speeds. If Samsung can do two SIM slots for their S6 duos version, they can provide an OPTIONAL memory slot. It's about marketing strategy to milk the customers... I bet they come out with an S6 version which has memory expansion within 3 months.
TheNeighbor, 26 Jun 2015Latest micro SD cards can go 80-90mb/s. Always a great thing to have the main internal storage... moreStill a memory card slows down the entire interface. The S6 is proof of the phenomenon. Looks like a a super high speed internal memory like the S6 is perfect for regular use. And OTG are still much faster in file transfers. That is definite.
