I also had a problem with usb transfers and slow or non existent internet in many places in central and south America as well as Africa so moving files to the microsd card has been invaluable. People who live in western countries with cheap fast internet don't seem to realise this.
The performance looks impressive but I require a removable MicroSD card and removable battery. A radio would also be nice. Why you ask when there is the cloud and external batteries and radios? Becaus.
I'm lot living in a country with cheap fast internet like most people who make such comments..I've been traveling the world for three years (I'm a private investor) and like performance without extra gear. I'm still using my Galaxy S2. it won't have the performance of its sucessors but has great flexibility. I've changed the battery a couple of times and also when android has crashed how are you going to do that on the new phone? my photos and videos I move directly onto usb but when the port died I simply swapped microsd cards and moved them onto there for backup as internet cost and speed in many countries is prohibitive for such a move of large amounts of data. can't do that either on the new phones.
so I keep waiting. A S6 with removable battery and microsd would give me cause to upgrade.
JohnHolmes, 11 Mar 2015I figured it was going to be dubbed the best display since the Note 4 was the previous king, b... moreBesides with the 14nm Processor, newer Exynos chipset, DDR4 RAM & UFS 2.0 the battery efficiency is going to be top notch.
More from DisplayMate that I find interesting:
The Galaxy S6 is in fact 23 percent more power efficient than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for mixed image content (that includes
text together with photos, videos, and movies, for example) with a typical 50 percent Average Picture Level, APL. OLEDs have been
rapidly improving in their power efficiency. The balance point has now moved all the way up to 65 percent APL: the OLED Galaxy S6
is more power efficient for all APLs from zero up through 65 percent, and the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus LCDs are more power
efficient for APLs above 65 percent.
Sigle phone means that this phone has all the features in the mentioned ones. So where is the sd slot or the batterry removable option
I figured it was going to be dubbed the best display since the Note 4 was the previous king, but this surprised me a little (from DisplayMate's test):
Comparison with the Galaxy S5:
The Galaxy S6 is 20 percent more power efficient than the Galaxy S5 (for the same Luminance and same screen area).
That should bode well for the smaller battery in the S6.
It's really nice and high performer. Samsung at last made it best ever & ever but missed sd card & removal battery. King of the king.
Who want to buy iphone 6,who want to buy xperia z3,who want to buy s4,who want to buy alpha,now you can get all of these in just one single phone,galaxy s6
s4, 11 Mar 2015Ok i amd m86k. There is 2 more.. cmon lets see uHaha, and what are you going to do if 3 more people that feel like feeding your tr0ll-face tell you they are impressed? Stop posting your drivel?
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2015you can only bet that some of those features were intentionally left out to be included in fut... moreThen their sales would be more pathetic than their S5 sales, which weren't bad by most standards, but by Samsung's standards they were.
LOL, man, I can't believe how many people on the internet are asking "How can you reset the S6 if it freezes? You can't pull the battery!". Are people so oblivious that they don't realize there are already Android phones out there without removable batteries? Even ones with removable batteries could often be hard-reset with a power button long press or power + vol-down. If you waited for the battery to die, you are ignorant.
CNET, whom I despise, says "When challenged by my colleague Jessica Dolcourt, Samsung reps noted that the battery "hard resets" by pressing and holding down the power button." Wow, CNET....just wow.
[deleted post]I'm pretty sure more than half of the general public that sees the S6 is impressed. The only ones not impressed are the 1% of people that swap batteries and SD cards often, and maybe another 10% of people like you that just THINK they want those abilities but never actually use them.
How can you not be impressed by these 2 features?:
World's best mobile screen.
World's best mobile camera.

Apple charges $100 for each step from 16GB to 64GB to 128GB. When a phone has an SD card, the user can put whatever size card they want at about half the price than what the phone manufacturers charge for the internal memory upgrades. And also, I remove my SD card all the time when transferring data to my PC or when putting the SD card into another phone. Data transfer from the SD card directly is WAY faster than through USB.
me alone, 11 Mar 2015no micro SD slot is a bad move . thats something that made samsung much better than AppleAgreed
Can I just say that Samsung is trying to compete just like everyone else... BuT i can say that taking away an sd slot and making the backs unable are things that consumers look for... I dabble with all cell phones and the reason I come back to android is because you arent forced into just do what the company wants us to do... Like little kids. Apple is solid too, but you have to pay for the space and you cant change the battery on your own... Heck you cant even customize something like text messaging... Thats what honestly seperates ios from android, amoung other things. Not all of us can afford to buy the best on the market every year, so things like sd cards help us out. Idk if i like the fact that tge s6 looks like the ip6 cousin... It kinda creeps me out.
Many people still using Iphone without complaining any problem about battery. However, fast charging mode where can last up to 4 hours in 10 minutes charging time.It’s good to hear that both smartphone, Samsung also updated with Android 5.0 lolipop OS which is the latest, plus it will be able to remove pre-installed app.
Its a shame that so many iDiots come here to post comments trying to bash this phone even though its specs are better than the iPhone 6 in quite a few ways.
Yes i accept the phone has some fall backs like the smaller battery and lack of a micro SD slot but overall this phone is a large step in the right direction for Samsung.
So if the iPhone fans want to keep hating they can but your bad grammar comments are not going to convince people that apple is so much better.

"Oh wait i need to put my other memory card in its got my songs on it"
