Gsmarena why have you almost stopped detailed comparison of phones. I remember i used to see your comparison of various flagship offering from popular brands before buying a phone. I am going to buy a new phone soon and was confused between iphone6 / 6s(due next month) and samsung S6 edge..
My s6 cracked! In less than a meter. It fell face down now it had web like crack. The touch screen stopped responding. How much does it cost to repair it. I am from canada
I have been using this phone for a month now, and I love every aspects of it, amazing pictures, amazing performance, and amazing phone in every single category, only few small things which really bugs me that Samsung haven't got right.
so if any of you have a solution for this, I will be most appreciated if you can kindly share the answers with me, here are my questions:
1. I can't change the dialer screen from that stupid ugly colour "green" to anything else. this specially confusing because when you dial a number it stays green, when someone answers the phone it will continue to stays green!, the previous Galaxy where only turning green when someone were answered the phone, so I find this stupid to be honest and can't believe Samsung allow that to happen.
2. If I make a phone call and the phone number engage there is NO OPTION to activate the re-dial!! again very stupid miss by Samsung, because even my Galaxy S2, S3 had that; before I change to this phone! how could they not include such a important feature! the "auto redial" is the must and Samsung miss that!! how!!????
3. this is minor complain, but the default alarm is rubbish! why? because it doesn't allow you to change the snooze time from every 5 min to something else! I know you can download loads of other apps to over come this problem but I quite liked the default alarm on my S2, .
4. The samsung theme market to change the screen/theme are so ugly and the green dialer screen ALWAYS stays that colour no matter what theme you download, and so limited options there, please bring back the old look of dialer screen and get rid of this stupid green and white colour scheme !
any comments are much appreciated, I hope I hear a good discussion regarding the about 4 topics
anyone else share the same view? ANY SOLUTION please?
thanks very much for your time,
rejaz, 26 Aug 2015I have used both of them so I shall suggest G4, it's a piece of mind.
No worries about batter... moreG models of LG always had one if the worst battery life and G4 is still not in par at all with S6!
U want Android without lag? Then S6 and it'll remain the best phone on earth till Q3 2016!

Even i had that doubt.....
Can anyone answer this question?
I've observed that the app animations are inconsistent in lollipop. Sometimes when there are no tasks running in the background and if i switch from lets say the chrome browser to the settings directly from the notification toggle, there's always a frame drop in the animations. It's not much of an issue for others but it's kind of like an eye sore to me. I've had no issues like these with stock kitkat.
Is it because it's poorly optimized or the phone is at fault?
Currently I'm rocking a moto g 3rd gen but I've used my friend's nexus 6 for a while and I've observed the same app animation stuttering issues on it similar to the one on my phone.
Is samsung sending to the stores for testing purposes fine integrated camera sensor and actually selling unit with less quality on the camera??
Any one heard or knows about this?
My-Name-Is-SAM, 27 Aug 2015OK I've been using this phone for 2 weeks now and I have to say I am impressed. Ya it has so... morehow many free space to use of user in the 32GB version???& how many GBs we have to inztal apps??or can any app derectly inztl to internal mmry..???
OK I've been using this phone for 2 weeks now and I have to say I am impressed. Ya it has some issues like over heating and battery problem but here is the solution-
Since it has a qhd display and also the brightest display in the market so you can use it with half of it's brightness which is still brighter than most of the phones. It last full day with normal use and for full day gaming it needs to charge twice a day.
I don't have any other problems with this device. I played HD games like- thor, asphalt airborne, modern combat 5 and many more without any lag.
Here is my comparison to other phones- I never take my phone to shower if you know what I mean, none of my phone has ever encountered water splash. This is the most vivid and brightest display in the market. I love bigger display phone but this one feels good in hand. I got the platinum gold version which looks awesome, I love android because of its new games but iPhone also good for some features so it depends on your personal preferences. I never changed battery or added memory card in my life so 32 gb storage is good enough for me and if the battery drain more than now than I will change to a better phone.
So if you know how to customise your phone with your personal preferences I don't think you will complain about the phone at all but if you like bigger display then you should buy note 5.
At the end I know lots of you will start arguing with me so here is my reply to you in advance-
I DON'T CARE. If you have problems with new phones then go to your older phone page. The up coming phones will beat this phone in every features and I won't start arguing with them like a stupid person.

john vincent, 26 Aug 2015g4 or s6??? help meI have used both of them so I shall suggest G4, it's a piece of mind.
No worries about battery life, memory increase etc. The screen size is more than S6. Camera quality is same even G4 is better in low light.
