i have xcover waterproof phone and i wait for xcover 3 to be waterproof than this or lg g4 if itsnt waterproof
Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge won’t be water resistant but Samsung will release a Galaxy S6 later.
seems odd number versions are experimental
even number versions are true users phone, built base on users opinions
s4 are nice. s6 seems very promising
They are just reserving the feature for Galaxy Note 5.. Galaxy Note 5 will be THE ultimate phone. After all it is too much a hassle to design the S6 with waterproofing and then omit it from the S6 Edge.. I have to say that is a good strategy.
Good step Samsung. The reason why S5 (or one of the reasons) sold so bad was because IP made it look ugly, made it thicker and with bigger bezel.
And this is what nobody wants and this is why Sony phones and S5 sell so bad.
If Samsung would sell two versions of the S6 - one with IP 78 and the look of S5 and one without IP 78 but with the look of A7 or Alpha - I bet more than 80% would grab the one without IP 78
No waterproofing for S6, means less competition for xperia, this could be z4's year...
whats matter in todays phones simply :) :
-top spec for media content
(hw(pen,manual settings in camera,sensors...),
AI,build-in offline navi..),support)
-simplicity (for example how fast u can take
photos,panoramas,spheres,hdr and their resolution -
is difference 60Mp and 15/5Mp)
now the samsung is soon goin to become apple but a rotten one... atleast apple has a premium segment but sammy is getting worse n worst is the S6... samsung went oblivion, what they thinking nobody would ever understand... making millions of different models in a yaer and unable to make a decent flagship equipped with good specifications n features while using all knocked up gimmicky software tricks... soon they going to end with billions of losses n their dark phase has already begun...
And when apple finally releases a waterproof device, I guess the galaxy s7 will also have to have it again.
Samsung why can't you stick with one philosophy and go with it. Worst decision makers at samsung, even when they were ahead of the rest.
The disappointing profits of Samsung will drop even more in 2015!
They invest 15 billion $ on a chip factory (WOOOW!)
Do they invest anything on human resources? Are they all sleeping?
-No L5.0 updates for your still under warranty phones, than no new orders for you. This will be your punishment. Now market is full of good phones. Now it is time to show your big resources for updating.
Can Samsung make Galaxy S6 even worse phone than S5? Turns out THEY CAN - congrats! ;)
Good move. No waterproofing makes the phone thinner, lighter, smaller, louder, cheaper...waterproofing is useless. S6 gets more and more interesting to me.

And yes, Xiaomi phones are mostly Low quality (Specs are not everything). Bad battery (And non-removable), extremely bad audio, no sd slots. Cpu power is not everything
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2015Of course it's the users fault if it gets wet, but mostly people don't plan on dropping it in ... moreIf this feature is what 'breaks' the interest in mobiles phones you clearly do not understand what is necessary for a phone to be successful.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2015But of course we can't have it - all phones must be crappy enough to make us replace them soon... moreNoone is pushing you to buy new phones every year. This is capitalism. They have to produce every year to make these devices not only cost efficient but also profitable. Deal with it. You have a choice.
While I agree on that replac. bat. is an advantage, I do not agree on your claim that non-replac. bat. is scam. You consider it is as essential for flagship, for others, unibody premium feel is more important. This depends on person.
Funny to refer Xiaomi as crappy. Xiaomi has top tier specs in some of their phones. Yes, they are not innovative and steal everything from everyone but they are not an unnamed brand.
