it's a sad day for android lovers and samsung. People who loved galaxy s series preferred extendable memory and removable battery over looks. it's the choice of having all the available option was the main charm of Samsung's flagship series. People who cheered for galaxy loved the convenience of the phone, if they really wanted a beautiful phone, then they would have bought iphone or htc one series in the first place. this s6 is not better than any of those in terms of looks. so they have scarified galaxy's intrinsic characteristics for nothing, because its just another iphone shelled in a samsung galaxy moniker phone. Alas. We the geeks and android lovers finally lost the battle against iphone's beauty in this day.
Galaxy S6 is a big disappoinment for S5, Note3 & Note4 users e.g. like me. But if u are having S3, S4 or Note2, u can consider upgrading.
I recently sold my S5 and bought a Not4. So, I won't upgrade to S6 no matter how cool it looks. My first smart phone from Samsung was OMNIA i8910 HD. Since then I used OMNIA-II, S, S2, S3, Note2, Grand Neo, Tab S 8.4, S5, Note4 ... Now I also think it's time to test some other brands like Sony, HTC & LG.
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2015I don't need this phone , my galaxy note 2 is working perfectly to this days. Even galaxy core... moreGood for you it will save your money but for us geeks at cutting edge I am buying one,, white colour so far.With potent CPU/GPU and fast DDR4 Ram and high speed SSD it should fly.

i hawe note 3 and s5 there are plastik made but it hawe removable battery and back panel and note 3 have 3 gb ram 2.3 quad core 13 mp a big and good skreen a big 3200 battery and what new have s6 A COPY of apple iphone 6 a samsung procesor 3 gb ram (like note 3 who is almoust 2 year old model ) no sd non removable 2550 battery ... it will cost a lot of $ for what ???
wow better and cheaper than note 4, like g3 cost 600 eur and now is abowt 350 eur
The Best Features
1. 2nd Generation Fingerprint scanner is very good like the scanner in Iphone 5,6 and 6+.
2. 3GB RAM
3. The same camera of the Galaxy Note 4 is used in this phone which was regarded the best camera experience by many people.
4. 3.5mm jack placed on the bottom like the the Iphone.
5. Has Samsung's own chipset that is Exynos 7420 which is more efficient and faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
6. Has an upgraded resolution
7. Very good metal finish at the back instead of the band-aid like rubber finish
The Worst Features
1. Has a small battery ( 2600mAH )
2. Has 2K dislpay which will suck the battery very fast
3. Not IP58 or IP568 certified that is it is not waterproof
4. No MicroSD slot
5. Not Removable Battery
i dont know how many $ will cost to change the non removable back plate when you will broke GLASSpanel and the litle battery ???
If you don’t want to use cloud, then according to your theory (for me never in existence) if you fry(putting your phone in oven) for device, alteast cloud will have your data is it not? Or you think the moment Samsung gives Memory card back this will save your data irrespective of if you want to fry your phone? Or you think just because they have not included the memory slot which means you will have your data corruptions? Goosh what you eat to have such thinking mate??? Sorry to ask this?
Colour wise, it’s our own taste. Just for saying males usually go with most colours but females prefer starting with white colour. I have used black on S4 then white on S5 which is nice never used gold. Between what I tried will go with white if not then black
I think this one is indeed a great release by samsung. Previously owned an S4 & moved to iPhone because I suddenly began hating TouchWiz. In my opinion, non removable batteries are the future and users will get used to non expandable memory - I did on a 16Gig iPhone. The build quality is also boss. I can't wait to own one.
Guys which color of s6 is the best i am confused between Black And Gold.. plz help.
Praveen, 04 Mar 2015S6 and S6 edge has not even hit the market and panic has already started due to its strengths ... moreWhy should I have to rely on cloud services and always worrying that I might have weak or no Internet connection at a time I need it when I could have everything on the phone plus on cloud services?
Fahad , 04 Mar 2015All specs are like note 4 only s6 has bettre processor then it nothing more improvement and th... moreYou have certainly got S6's specs wrong then, please always read a products spec just not from GSM Arena alone research about it from other sources too.
S6 is better than Note 4 in multiple areas:
Processor, RAM, UFS 2.0, Camera, etc.
Honestly and seriously will say, if you have not used android phones especially Samsung galaxy flagships phone, then give a try and you will never think of anything else thereafter in smart phones and the one which we talking about, its master of all phones. Only death has to make it apart. Also the customization the android offers its too good... than any other OS I have seen
No removable battery!
No higher battery capacity!
No water resistant!
No humidity sensor!
No MicroSD card! (I should decide whether I use it or no and I do use it and need it)
So much expectations.... so disappointed :(
I hope that this is all that is missing!
For now, I'll stick with my current S4.
