william c, 01 Feb 2016just out of curiosity which features are you looking for to come back, removable batteries are... moreI assume you're one of those "rich bitches" whom can buy a new flagship device each and every year? Unfortunately the majority of us have other costs of life like rent, taxes, food, taxes, utilities, taxes... Not to mention that our jobs don't earn as much as what (some) CEO's get. And I haven't gotten a big heritage either from an super-wealthy aunt. :-(
Despite the fact that not all of us are super-rich, a lot of us donate their "former" flagship devices to other family-members or friends. What with those devices without removable batteries after 2 years of use (when their batteries reach their end-of-live)? You can't expect to pay a significant sum to replace these batteries. Not to mention that most of these repair/service-companies are a bunch of morons whom do more harm than fix stuff. So you can expect your perfectly cared for device to come back with cracks, bad assembly, chipped frames and missing screws (or glue all over the glass) etc...
Naah, I'd rather have removable backs. Besides it's not that hard as someone pointed out. Some cheap chinese phones (e.g. Jiayu) with metal designs have had removable batteries without problems so why is this suddenly a problem for Samsung and company?
They only want to enfore people to buy new (expensive) every 2 years. The greedy basterds. :-(
Equinox Hydroid, 01 Feb 2016well nothing new in the design it only brought the edged back like note 5 it's a small note 5 ... moreplease educate yourself on how cameras work...dont be one of those fools who thinks more megapixels= better camera
I hope there is s7 plus variant flat 6 inch I want buy it when released
well nothing new in the design it only brought the edged back like note 5 it's a small note 5
and if it's real that the camera will be 12 MP so it will be very bad from samsung supposed to be improved 16 MP or 20 MP
A cousin and aunt asked me last year what to choose, i spoke against samsung because of this and advised them to wait one year to renew their mobile, instead they went for apple. Didn't see that one coming. Samsung is loosing money by word of mouth. Really a shame.
I wish samsung brings back the removable battery... Until then, no deal.
william c, 01 Feb 2016just out of curiosity which features are you looking for to come back, removable batteries are... moreYou can have a premium look with removable batteries. Even a Chinese company managed that: http://www.etotalk.com/products_img/2013/Jiayu%20G5/Jiayu_G5_TB01.jpg (metal, glass).
Certainly Samsung can too. All they sacrifice is planned obsoscense , with which plan of course they won't go, which is why I hope that customers will turn their back on them like they did with S6 over S5 sales...
BTW HTC severely failed too, apparently customers don't dig unibodies if they come with so many problems.
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2016They definitely lost the plot. Iphone clone will not get you sammy over the line. Bring back ... morejust out of curiosity which features are you looking for to come back, removable batteries aren't coming back that was sacrifice of having a premium design, like HTC and the iPhone, SD card is already coming back so what are you looking for? And iPhone clone? In what way?
Simon, 01 Feb 2016Ha, the fact that they look so potato made me happy that I went with the S6. It seems like eve... moreAre you drunk? Note 5 was a severe downgrade to Note 4, all it had was a slightly better SoC. In everything else was almost the same or far, far worse (no removable SD and battery on a pro phone? Seriously Samsung??!?)
Ha, the fact that they look so potato made me happy that I went with the S6. It seems like every second generation is worth it. I was thinking the S7 might change it because of the lucky number, but fortunately this is the filler year for Samsung again.
It's like they have a flagship series every 2 years for both the S-series and Note-series, then a mediocre in-between that's almost a downgrade between those.
zigec, 01 Feb 2016MicroSD is supposed to return and bigger non-removable battery plus waterproofingI support your idea.. bigger battery
zigec, 01 Feb 2016MicroSD is supposed to return and bigger non-removable battery plus waterproofingThey definitely lost the plot. Iphone clone will not get you sammy over the line. Bring back all the features that made you top contender, otherwise goodbye for good.
QuikSilver, 01 Feb 2016The plus range defeats the purpose of the having the Note.question is will note 6 be avaible world wide becouse note 5 is not.
Too many variants, that's why they even fail to give support to their devices

Another fail from Samsung to match their lower S6 sales. I predict that S7 would sell worse than S6 which in turn sold less than S5.
When will they learn that a great core of their customers need useful features like removable battery and SD? If they continue sealing their phones I predict them to end up like HTC or Sony...
The Chinese will EAT YOU alive, change or prepare for the wave.
