[deleted post]S6 uses exynos 7420 which is 14 nm built, thus no overheating issues is present. Snapdragon 810 used in other andriod devices has overheating issues.
Before its launch Active is announced with sd card ad removable battery, back to pavilion Sammy. Maybe you survived on these primitive commotions. But look out 800$ will be a myth, maximum sales at 500 when ever reached.

Having said that do check the devices in store before choosing handset.
1701, 27 Mar 2015The best course of action is to check out both products in store, then decide.Thanks, but GSMArena says battery backup of S6 is very bad, thats why I am confuse. Because I need better battery life for my smartphone.

1701, 27 Mar 2015I have said this before, you can't go wrong with any of the android handsets this year.
How... moreTrue. Even ph...arena stated that after the "thermal update" M9 took a hit in performance.
Word is Qualcomm is trying to shift as soon as possible out of its 20nm but since those changes won't come before late this year, SD810 phones won't be usable to their full potential :
Be sure to check ph...arena S6 battery tests article. It is totally on par with S5 according to them.

However Overheating is major issue, if it happens manufacturers have to reduce performance of the device. Some claim that SD810 is not overheating, review of g flex 2 from gsm and android police and m9 state otherwise. Also if you check video of flex 2 from gsm review on the third page you notice a slight lag right at the start.
So Samsung did the right thing by using exynos and not taking any chances.
Heating will be major problem . The company must solve this problem. Pricing will be on higher side. Thin but not worth paying 50000/- note four is better.

But SD810 overheating and throttling in all reviews and even before in news, this is not deniable. I woudn't imagine using that if it's such a noticeable.
All signs are pointing to that since a few months, people were even accusing Samsung of trolling in news just because of that.

Despite reviews saying it does overheat. What do you expect lg to say, that our device is overheating and we either have to reduce performance or just let it be.
Michael Parker, 26 Mar 2015Micro SD, removable battery, radio, on Galaxy S3 they tried to remove the ability to move Apps... moreApps to SD removal was part of some android update, not Samsung's fault by being compliant.
Same rants again? Radio is gone since S3, it's time to move on or go for another model/brand (that may satisfy better your needs).
Numerous news (apparently unread judging by the ammount of comments) have popped up since MWC talking about S6 active and dual sim versions, featuring : bigger battery, water resistance, and even MicroSD slot. But then, if design is "not enough", as usual, there are other phones/brands to look at.
Michael Parker, 26 Mar 2015Micro SD, removable battery, radio, on Galaxy S3 they tried to remove the ability to move Apps... moreFor IP67 rating there is S6 active. So you would rather have software that no one uses rather than putting focus on user interface and making faster device.
ufs 2.0 storage is more advanced and faster than micro sd and other built-in storage of other device, thus including card slot would hinder performance. Last time I checked most flagships have built-in battery. With regards to radio, I just won't even comment on that since others already talked about streaming.
I see few people complaining about this or that. I would be able to point out many issues with other devices if I focus on trying to find negative things about a device.

You do realize that each new galaxy has more features than the previous generation. Also so by your logic, not including things that only minority use this is not a good handset.

Please do explain how this ... moreIt's a problem because every year Samsung keep cutting and cutting and cutting away at the features they include and becoming ever more like iPhone by only giving features that the majority use instead of giving a phone that does everything like Samsung always used to excel at.
And this is from me who has bought and enjoyed every Galaxy S since the beginning.
