grahamkdt, 02 Mar 2015... no microSD, non-removable battery does not equal FAIL! Apple have never had removable batt... moreWell, guess who's *not* buying Apple, I think this is a bad mistake.
But I don't think they are that foolish to make that mistake, they probably have a microSD/replaceable battery version coming up in a few months. They are testing the market, simply because they can afford it.
SD card slot is not MUST HAVE. when you have an SD card larger then 16GB you have big problems with saving your videos and photos on it. videos and photos are chrashing an you can't play them any more. and about that non-removal battery i think that is not problem. for me it is not a problem because i never change my battery ,but i u se it every day from the morning to tge evening
And bottom headphone jack on top of it all. Well samsung, if your goal was to lose even more market share, its a success.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015Ah crap! No SD card and removable battery? So i HAVE to buy the 128Gig version? No thanks! ... moreEventually Samsung follow suit to produce flagship smrtphone with Non removable battery. It will not be too long that we will see LG also follow suit to produce the LG G4 flagship phone with non removable battery and No micro SD card slot. This is just the trend that the smart phone industry is moving towards and every major phone manufacturer is following. Stop complaining and adjust our mind to adapt to this trend.
W T F no SD card and removebale battery now Consumer are on loosing end.
No sd card, no expanded battery option. Might as well buy a crapple phone.

The reason we get a Galaxy is for the OS and expandeble memory. I see no reason to upgrade Ill stay with my S5. Also saw nothing about the S6 being as durable as the 5.
no radio, no SD csrd.... its a worst version of S series. now let me choice another phone... !
My deepest sympathies for all the Samsung fans out there... Who stays with their ugly plastic crap phone, rather than buying an iPhone 6. Mocking iPhone for the battery, memory and it's "outdated" specs...
And after months of waiting, what they're expecting was just a simply clone of iPhone 6.
So sad for you guys. I really do...
there is no sdcard slot
oooooh man Wtf
ooooh samsung what are u doing
this is the main thing that u missed?

So, please go and use an iPhone first before talking.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015Ah crap! No SD card and removable battery? So i HAVE to buy the 128Gig version? No thanks! ... moreSamsung devices sucks cause they just launch new products which reduces the old devices.
i understand some of the complaints about lack of sd slot and removable battery, but you guys brought this on yourselves. At the end of the day, samsung is solely concerned about moving product... apple sold a record amount of smartphones with the lack of the aforementioned features while the s5 and note4 had mediocre numbers. So you guys are sending a pretty loud and resounding message. Samsung is just replying.
harlekkin, 02 Mar 2015That's only one component of managing your phone, but I agree. It's doable.
But most non-s... moreIf you want to expose your itunes knowledge, Kies 3 does all of that too (and i bet LG Suite too).
On android, you can also use software directly from your phone to do your backups/restores on the fly : sprite backup, titanium etc..
But originally, you were bragging about managing your contents, not full backups etc.., so make up your mind. If you need to launch such an app to copy 3 directories before going to work, it's your problem.
Android and Galaxy S are about choices, it's not the debate here : but if you don't know them, try to look for Airdroid, Kies Air etc. Maybe you can learn 1 thing or 2.
