Just like the guy on hot UK deals who keeps saying, at every opportunity, that the s6 is "crippled and is pointing people to buy a note or wait for a note 5 or even buy a dog, anything but let the tally of so purchases rise any higher, Samsung problem is neither battery nor so card, but rival pr filling every Samsung thread. Get an s6 (if your a Samsung person,),an, for the same money as an sd, get a tiny usb on the go dongle and tiny short cable an just swap out, it's only movies or video from the fantastic camera, that's gonna fill it up anyway, leaving the rest for files, games and pics, and the speed that phone and the new speed otg stuff transfers you'll blink and..done, just keep on what you use constantly, (enter rival pr team operative, posing as public member.."I have to keep 500 movies I watch every day on mine, and I have no room to carry a tiny cable with me and a drive the size of my thumb nail in my clothes, just my cigarette packet and lighter and sunglasses....? On and on and on.") Lets be sensible if you are going for a run, a walk, a train ride any passive activity, you cannot use but a tiny amount of what's on the phone storage itself, to keep you busy on the train journey or run, or whatever no cable needed, get home, work, car swap out if you need.Hand bag, pocket, car, desk, anywhere put your dongle. "Oh you'll lose it!" Grow up, back it up, as many times and places as you like and find secure.
The battery is exactly the same principle.
They'd have us believe the difference between a spare battery and a new tech power pack is a logistical issue, get a life. The new charging speed aw well, check it out." I can't be bothered unplugging the darn phone every 2 minutes." Aw, no , of course you can't, you pick it up answer the phone and lay it back down on the wireless charger you picked it up from, that is unless..rival Pr boy's, you neither go to work drive a car, or ever go home, I mean, your always just walkin, right, and your to silly to charge your phone, before you leave home , work, car, right. Here on this site lastly, the very story of how its cheaper to professionally, get this phone battery changed than an iphone , is now a historical fact, and all other privacy, handling issues are identical, that is unless you are of the foolish brand who believe how a jive video showed you, how , blindfolded fairies with retina vision, did it lightning fast, with the concentration of thunder,doubling down (To just be normal, and say doubling up would be an admission of past, inadequacy, now wouldn't it.) on the job as they go , is your thing. O..just get the s6, you know you want to,...and it is the best out there ?
droid, 01 Jul 2015You have just posted why did you don't get a burn in. Looks like you're not keeping a phone lo... moreThe jet and a note and an s2 go with me every week to this day, all week, on business. My wife's note 1 is the only phone she's had since the note came out. The s1, was so good,I never took the s2 out of the house for nearly a year, (See, before some big greedy company induced all the carriers to withdraw from phones4u,because no one got precedence in its shops, and androids filled the walls in equal measure to all the manufacturers there are, leaving the major carriers and cwharehouse to greet us with massive overbalanced overbearing obelisks pointing to just them, whilst sharing phones4u, revenue between them.) I used to get my phones yearly as an upgrade, on a spare contract, I kept only for an extra signal in case of breakdown, so, I simply got it out the box a times and played with it as one of my offspring had one and, 4 of her cousins as well eventually I began to use it parallel to my jet an s1, then note jet an s2, my use is extensive and (I keep my phones thats just me.)my extended family and work colleagues are festooned with samsungs, guess what, faceless people, with unknown motives even to be on the site of a firm they don't like are the only interface I have with so called burn in. If their photos are genuine, their attitudes don't seem to be, and I wouldn't put it past any firm, who has billions, investing in a few dimes in labour, to their Pr team, to leave an amoled screen switched on at full brightness day and night for three months, or whatever, perpetually on , to arrive at pictures to repost, filling the internet, with, so called, users, with the sole aim of destroying samsung public perception, get between the public mind and their product for good, hence the otherwise unanswerable herd of people globaly stuck with 3.5 inch screens, years past their sell by date whilst chanting, lagdroid, well past its sell date , to anyone with an education , I believe its called subliminal manipulation. I don't know may be there's one firm out there, who have mastered this ? Seen any reedicaluus que outside of a phone shop anywhere.
Samsung's designers clearly have made a huge mistake in their design shift towards using non-replaceable batteries in the S6, S6 Edge, and the A and E series. Samsung has forgotten that many of their smartphone customers chose Samsung over the iPhone because they prefer the convenience and practicality of having user-replaceable batteries. Having a phone with a user-replaceable battery means that you will not be forced to leave your phone (for many weeks to even more than a month!) to a technician or service center just to have the battery replaced. With a user-replaceable battery, you just buy a new battery and thereby avoid being terribly inconvenienced (to say the least)of leaving your phone to a service center and not being able to use it for many weeks! Plus your privacy is compromised because the service center technician can view your files, photos, text messages, etc. And with a user-replaceable battery, you can just carry an extra battery along with you, so that when your phone's battery get drained you just replace it with your extra fully-charged spare battery. Changing the battery takes only a couple of minutes. Saves you the trouble of carrying a bulkier/heavier powerbank, because a spare battery is much smaller/slimmer and lighter in weight than a powerbank. Plus you don't have to suffer the inconvenience and difficulty of having a powerbank attached to your phone while you are on the move. So Samsung... wake up! Bring back the design of having phones with user-replaceable batteries, or you will surely be losing many customers who really want phones with user-replaceable batteries. Many Galaxy S5, S4, S3 users have already said that they will not buy the S6 nor the S6 Edge... and instead buy another phone brand that offers a user-replaceable battery design. I myself will never buy a phone with a non-user-replaceable battery.
rasH, 30 Jun 2015the phone is awesome...!!...i am considering to buy it...should i buy it now or wait for note ... moreJust don't buy any of it. This year smartphone model from Samsung is not that good. Note 5 will look exactly like S6 except bigger and have a stylus. No sd slot and no removable battery. Overheating back glass panel. I had one but sold it back. S5 active seem like a better choice. Yup, S5 not S6.

Looks like you're not keeping a phone long enough(can be seen by the phones you've own). Of course you will not notice a burn in in your phone if you will buy a new one before it will have it.
Im using s6 from a week and i have a little problem with 3G.after using 3G for sometime it stops but the sign is still there on top.and than to use it again i have to switch off mobile data and than again switch on it to use it again..how to fix..plz help
Calls dropping. Videos hanging. phone is getting restarted every now and then. Network connectivity very poor. Some of the issues still facing with this new phone.

I have a jet, s1, s2, s3, 2x note 1, had s4 and s5, and have a tab s and zero burn in. You'd have to be fruity loops to leave a y screen on full anyway, blinds you, and drains the battery.Full brightness exists for temporary screen bragin rights only.An amoled screen on full brightness......shoulda gone to spec savers
5.1.1 update for global variant (SM-G920I) will be available within 10 days!
the phone is awesome...!!...i am considering to buy it...should i buy it now or wait for note 5(not consodering note 4)as rumors sujjest that it will come with new usb type C(reversible)....sd card and non removable battery is not an issue for me...thanks in advance :)

It can gives burn to the screen and cause yellowing. This happens especially on the Note Series. That is the main reason why most Samsung low budget and mid range phone are using TFT instead. SuperAmoled are mainly used to attract customer by showing the display having better contrast, almost 180degree viewing angle and higher color accuracy. It is so vivid and bright eventhough it is claim that it use less energy and black color is turn off to give more vivid black.
