Good luck selling that at iphone prices. Apple owns the high end market. Samsung phones need to be cheap to sell, for similar price, they wont be able to move serious numbers.

I currently have an S5 which is amazing and clearly blows away any iPhone since the creation of iPhone. I have never and will never purchase an iPhone. I would rather go back to my Symbian Nokia (which still has more features than any iPhone). For those of you who love to come to Galaxy forums and talk about iPhones, let me tell you 15 reasons why I wouldn't purchase an iPhone:
You know to each their own but personally I think every iPhone is a rip off. Here are 12 reasons why I wouldn't waste my money on an iPhone:
No smart dialing
Poor performing loudspeaker (nobody wants to miss calls, especially important ones)
Bluetooth doesn't support file transfers
No Flash support in the web browser
No true multitasking for all applications
No file transfer over Bluetooth or USB Mass Storage mode
No microSD card slot
Has unimpressive screen to body ratio
Too dependent on iTunes for loading multimedia content
Protruding camera lens makes the phone wobble if you don't have a case on
Camera is still merely 8MP four years in a row
NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay
No 4K video and video sound is still mono
No enhanced resistance to liquids or dust
As somebody once said an iPhone is a phone, web browser and an ipod. It's NOT a smartphone which even Eldar Murtazin from Mobile-Review blatantly said. Nobody can say that about any Samsung Galaxy which is a true smartphone.
Anonymous, 03 Feb 2015China is innovating the days. It's the west that replicates. Look at OPPO rotating camera, or ... moreYou call a rotating camera an innovation???
It's a mechanized gimmick that will most likely fail within six months.
lets just expect something great, with this price. Not just another phone...

Your comment made me smile. Apple rips off people and these people (puppets) don't even realise it. I happen to venture over the iPhone 6 forum right here on GSMArena and came across this very interesting and FACTUAL opinion. This one takes the cake...
"I had no idea this phone came out. Somehow I thought people have moved on from iphones...pretty much everybody I know stopped using these about 2 years ago...they are terrible cheap phones made for people that think expensive=quality...
Now i had the misfortune of researching this phone today and I saw that it is not waterproof, does not have Mirrorlink, cannot do split-screen, does not have widgets, no expandable memory, no replacable bigger battery, no full HD screen, an 8MP camera with no image stabilizer, etc...
I am sorry to say but people who actually think they have a good and modern smartphone on their hands are just lying to themselves and are simply targets of a con-product...
Anybody who is gullible enough to pay over $200 for this, should seriously re-evaluate their logic/life/thinking process..."
Having shared that quote...for me personally I would rather spend the same money on an innovative product (whether Samsung or otherwise) rather than spending it on an iPhone which doesn't focus on improving anything really expect the looks...example an 8MP camera four years in a row??? If you upgrade a gadget then new technology should revolve around that new gadget. Plain and simple.
[deleted post]very smart buying a phone for 1000$ to just call sms and maybe a little facebook...thats apple....and limited os with n95 specs and very inovative in 6 years a fps and biger screen....very smart
Its stupid to pay for a phone more than 500€.
I understand apple pricing its worth the money little expensive at the moment but excellent resale.
If you sell your iPhone before the new model show up you can regain 70%-80% of its initial value
No other brand can do that.
Plus new IOS is available for every device so not getting never old is another plus. Just the facts folks.
Death by greed. Now I know why companies like Nokia and Blackberry virtually disappeared while relatively still unknowns like Xiaomi, Meizu and OnePlus will be replacing Samsung and Apple within 2-3 years. Is there a Chinese Mobile phone manufacturer's ETF I can invest in now?
Samsung ! R U Crazy... 1050$??? For that kind of money I can buy a Lumia 930 or Nexus 5 + a very good Core i3 Laptop , and also that move left me with some money for a new Asus tablet . Look ... if you want a very nice and powerfull phone , you can buy Xperia Z3 or Iphone 6 with sub 700$ / Eur or whatever , but for a piece of Samsung plastic you cannot pay more than 500$ or 450Eur , and that`s it !
Meanwhile in d making is the s6 mini,s6 plus ,s6 zoom and many more lol hahahaha ...
