If this is continuing the trend of Glass/ Metal nonsense, then here are three words for you from me Samsung,
I. Don't. Care.
matt00112233, 19 Oct 2015and if the phone doesn't sell well, the Galaxy S8 will launch in May 2016correct
Just please make it water resistant like the Samsung S5, S4, etc. but that got dropped for the S6. I just want a phone I won't damage when I get it wet accidentally.
A Note 4 user, 19 Oct 2015It better have a microsd card slot, AND a removable battery, AND a reasonable price. otherwi... moreI would say you need to forget about Samsung altogether.. They will not come back and make high-end phones with removable batteries, or micro sd slots.. Maybe mid-rangers but not high-end devices..The Note 4 is the last of a dying breed.. that and the LG G4.
In Hungary these flagship phones sell for around 1000 usd including our insane 27% VAT. now the problem is that we earn around 700 per month.
Just make one flagship galaxy S phone, samsung. Put all your efforts in that one phone and watch your sales improve... Or still plummet if the people don't like it, but still the important thing is to stop wasting resources in making too many variants of one phone.
matt00112233, 19 Oct 2015and if the phone doesn't sell well, the Galaxy S8 will launch in May 2016hahaha that's true
For now, perfectly hapy with my S6 Ege 64 GB...but still interested how Samsung can make it better...probably marginally, so will wait for S8 and its night vision camera or holographic screen to change my phone.
And hereeeee we go again. Another unfinished unnecessarily rushed product.
When will Samsung learn? God!
Cpt. Power, 19 Oct 2015Having an asus laptop for 1200 eurs. So high end phone its just a waste of money. Anyway thu... moreI agree with you 10000%.. Most folks have laptops in office and desktops at home to carry out major tasks.. Why to pay 600$ for a small phone?.. Any simple phone with 150-250$ range is enough..
It better have a microsd card slot, AND a removable battery, AND a reasonable price.
otherwise we will be skipping it like the Note 5.
K.C.S, 19 Oct 2015What do you think A8, A7 are then? They're the mid range flagship which will substitute those ... moreAs you mentioned, they are mid-rangers. I was talking about Samsung FLAGSHIP variants (ala HTC, but more meaningful variants) with removal battery and SD card slot OR with 1080p display for very high performance.
Umbilical Noose, 19 Oct 2015Same old same old :)He's in the trend of decreasing battery capacity and reducing obesity, S7 will have a 2300 mAh battery, of course irreplaceable
matt00112233, 19 Oct 2015and if the phone doesn't sell well, the Galaxy S8 will launch in May 2016Not too much to look forward to, would not have expandable memory and a replaceable battery. SAMSUNG turned into APPLE. IMPORTANT IM ONLY PROFIT,

Anyway thu... moreI for one, in the same boat as you, using the phone mainly for mundane SMS and web browsing. I've been keeping updated with new devices for last half decade but I can't justify my compulsive spending on phones anymore. To be honest, I'm probably going to be perfectly fine with a mid-range device sporting a large screen.
Having said that, my SO just has her mobile to do absolutely everything. At first, I thought she could just use a mid-ranger to take care of everything, but it turns out mid-rangers in fact can't handle "everything". Too much of hassle with slowdowns, picture quality not good enough, not enough storage, etc. People like you and me who rely heavily on big screened computers may not understand them. I only understand because I witness her just using a phone for everything.

Anyway thumbs up. Who uses his high end phone with all its offers.
Most of us use phone for just calling and sending messages.
Some of us use it for internet but when we are at home we rather switch to faster computers with keyboard.
Than using phone touch screen which takes much longer to type and it have much slower internet connection than PC or Notebook. No matter if your phone supports LTE or not.
Also lots of people use phone for making nice photos but thats it.
Big new and super expensive phone Like S7 or Iphone 7 is just a waste of money.
Unless you use it as a workstation. Which is maybe 2-3% of total population.
And now i am expecting a lot of comments.
