High perf mode, that was this mode yes. I was waiting for an ultimate version of clean rom with kitkat or something but the guy dropped support and sold his tablet. And so did i.
if you dont like the phone then dont buy the phone simple as that or if you dont have the money then dont talk about the phone because is expensive atleast is better than the iphone go somewhere else there are plenty of phones you complaint alot about the removable battery and the sd slot they are not goin to change that so get out of here

I am not a Samsung fan. In fact, I vowed to never get another after I saw how they really hate rooting and unlocking of bootloader. I'd rather get an Apple device, and in fact sold my Note 10.1 2014 for an Air 2 because there just wasn't any Android tablet that was even 75% as good as the Air 2 (including the 10.5" Galaxy Tab S with the same laggy Exynos and UI as my Note 10.1). The new Sony Z4 tablet would be my choice probably if I hadn't gotten the Air 2. I had also vowed to never get another Apple device after I got the iPad 4 and tried using it without jailbreak for a couple months (it took them awhile to jailbreak it), but the Air 2 was just too sexy, especially gold 64GB for $499 after selling my Note 10.1 for $370.
Yet despite my hatred for Apple and Samsung as companies due to their business practices, I can't help but appreciate fine craftsmanship like the Air 2 and this Galaxy S6. I wanted the M9 to make my decision easier, but the S6 is checking more boxes than the M9. I want to wait for the Z4 and G4 to see if they're going to best the S6, but it's going to be a tough wait.
The 2600mah battery in the S6 Edge will provide similar battery life to the S5 and your 6plus, I guarantee it. I think it will be just slightly worse than both, but I think it will be close enough to where you can go 48 hours of normal usage between charges if you need to. Heck, I was fine with my Galaxy Nexus and its TERRIBLE battery life because I use docks at work and home, so anything better than 24 hours of normal use is icing on my cake.

I put a custom rom on it (CleanROM I think?) that had the full speed enabled by default all the time, so I didn't ever use anything less. Kind of like how I turn off TurboBoost on my Intel CPU so it hits the full 4.6GHz whenever it's busy instead of 2.8GHz or whatever. My TF700 was probably getting hot and thermal-throttling, but I didn't even notice because of other issues bugging me more.
I had the 32GB version with 32GB microSD and 64GB full SD in the dock. Was nice having that much storage for music, emulator roms, and videos, but ASUS just couldn't ever quite get it right with their high-end Transformers.

maybe you could try to watch full unpacked event first then wait for final reviews ?
I've got a link for you to check, don't hesitate :
Alternatively, you can start from the beginning, but i gave you a little hand to your questions.
m86k, 06 Mar 2015lol. True. I didn't even paid attention So lame that even Apple gave up fixing it for windows :)They released Safari for Windows?!? Wow. And then stopped supporting it, lol! Gee I wonder why...maybe because no one used it. The only people that do use Safari are iSh33p on iDevices or Macs that either a) Don't know other browsers exist in iOS/OSX, or b) Don't trust other browsers cuz they aren't made by Apple. Or they're just super lazy so they use the built-in browser. It's pretty much just like it was back in IE7 days when IE was really bad but was still the #1 used browser, but it's worse with Safari because of the cultist attitude that Apple fanb0ys have, and the low level of technological expertise that most Apple users have to where the thought of installing a different browser is too foreign and difficult for them to EXPLORER (pun intended), so they take the stance of "why would I use a different browser?".

The overheating was appearing mostly if you were setting in "turbo mode" (forgot the name of the option) instead of eco/normal, that was needed for playing advanced 3D games/TegraHD games smoothly.
It had many flaws which i don't remember too and autobrightness was really bad yeah. (And you had too washed colors in eco mode).
I was glad to be able to sell it 350$.
whitedragem, 06 Mar 2015bob.. I like the nic 'bob'.. it is sooo much classier than 'anonymous' all the same, I ... moreand how about s6 battery ???? it is big 2550 mah , you espected this battery with such specs of the s 6 to hold more then s5 .you ar Samsung fanboy, THIS phone have NON removable battery and no sd card ,desing same like iphone 6 and a price very espensive . i like the Remuvable batteries and micro sd on all samsung phones,but this ??i will by NOTE 4 then this copy of apple 6 (i have iphone 6 plus and i am wery happy ) i coment because samsung make a copy and not a genuine s6 , and all who have used samsung will by this phone because they have used just galaxy series , i dont tel what to by apple or samsung or htc .try from other brends an compare them and you will see the diference .for me this phone is not hood from samsung yust a NOTE series not this ..
ProfessionalCONSUMER, 06 Mar 2015hehe..just don't get the bootloader unlocked :)By the time Samsung drops S5 support, my warranty should be over :)
422000 hits on S6 page, not bad for such an "useless phone" i guess ;)
Now waiting eagerly for first reviews to pop-up. Go GSMA
m86k, 06 Mar 2015I feel the same way. The only custom roms i try, are on chinese phones now to get.
My S5 ha... moreI really wanted to like the Transformer tablet + keyboard dock, but that storage speed was just terrible. I didn't notice the overheating that you mention. I didn't like a couple other things about it like the way the auto-brightness was abrupt and annoying.
A year later, I got the TF701, hoping it would be a winner. I bought a Note 10.1 2014 at the same time and compared them side-by-side. The Note blew away the TF701 in 3D graphics speed, almost twice the framerate at the same 2560x1600 resolution. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a single person online that would root the TF701 and install the app that shows you your framerate, then play some games and see how it performs. I did exactly that and posted a bunch of screenshots and stuff, but no one seemed to care.
I was dumb and got the TF701 at newegg instead of amazon so I had to pay a 15% restocking fee to return it, but oh well! If it can't play basic 3D games at over 25fps at native resolution, it's worthless to me.
[deleted post]Those specs are not correct and were just guesses. They are WAY off in several areas, like:
Height: off by 10mm
Weight: off by 28g-38g
Battery: off by 1400mah
It says external memory = yes (meaning it has microSD slot)
Camera specs are not even close AT ALL (720p front camera? 20mp rear shooter? lol)
Sensors list is lacking some of the sensors (like heart rate monitor)

My S5 hasn't been rooted so far, maybe when Samsung will end its support.
BTW, i had also that Asus TF700 with its bad internal storage i/o and overheating combo of cute aluminium+tegra 3 :)

I was an addict when it comes to flashing roms back in the days when knox wasn't a priority but at the introduction of knox, my scale of flashing roms reduced drastically if not none. I haven't even rooted my s5 yet though their of roms out their to flash. Feel bad for the guy that paid buck loads to get his gadget repaired.
