if it's iPhone, nobody ever complain about not having micro sd card slot and removable battery. But if it's Samsung or other brand, people will protest like its the biggest mistake. I don't understand people these days. To me, everything have its sacrifice. I'm sorry if I offended you all. I never meant to start a war. It's just my opinion. Thank you

Second most people will not be paying full price. They will be spending 200-300 on contract.
And even if they paid for it outright does not mean they can blow 800 all the time.
And adding the large data plan on top of that is a lot more to constantly dish out and is ridiculously and outrageously over priced.
Large data plans are not very large in all actuality and hundreds of dollars.

How is apple using Samsung designs Samsung copying apple?
The iphone 6 looks like a Note 1 and Ativ with the shape and rounded frame.
The bottoms only look similar because of the rounded frame apple copied and copying the headphone and speaker on the bottom.
Samsung had phones with headphones on the bottom at least 2 years before apple. And phones that had bottom speakers since at least 2009.
What do you expect them to do? Change their designs just because apple used them? Put the charge port, headphone jack, and speaker grill on the sides? Use squared or triangle shaped frames and speaker holes?
Not use plastic cutouts for antenna performance???
My iPhone 6 doesn't need a SLOW mircosd card, so why should the Galaxy S6 since it's copying Apple it also doesn't need a microsd card, and we didn't want it anyway

AnonD-371083, 12 Mar 2015Wow, even on the camera shootout article the comments section is riddled with anonymous trolls... moreI can't find a very good alternative: Samsung S6 has the best camera, how can you check yourself now.
Sadly on the S6 the battery is fixed and it doesn't have microSD slot.
Very good camera, but I hate its limitations...

If you dont have the money.. buy yourself a Moto G or Nokia 535.. You want to see Series on a smartphone? not the best choice.. Use a Tablet OR a TV for the god sake.. You want listen to MUSIC? download SPOTIFY, PANDORA.. RDIO... etcc etc etc (requires data plan of course, if you can pay) Or simple.. buy the 128GB version (IF you can pay of course).. You need to Put your battery out for a fully charged one like the 1% of the peopple? NO, almost nobody does that.. Stop complaining and buy an iPhone instead and stop your suffering...
Wow, even on the camera shootout article the comments section is riddled with anonymous trolls spouting drivel about microSD cards and how critical they are to all the idiots out there that don't know anything about OTG or Wifi-drives. Can we please stop talking about it? If you don't know about the good alternatives, just stop posting.

Due to googl... moreEven with a slower micro-SD card, I find it very convenient to transfer what media I accumulated with a total of 56GB of a 64GB card. Pictures and apps are default to my internal memory for fast operation.
Spare batteries are VERY useful. You get full charge in a minute than waiting for HOURS. You still wait an hour with fast charger.

Everyone seems to be arguing over the battery and SD slot but don't realise that these are the sacrifices that had to be made to excel in build quality. I think it was a good choice in the end because if they stuck with plastic, I doubt there'd be an S7 next year...

It should have a micro sd card slot. Many people like to keep their music on the mobile. Some people like to keep full seasons on their mobile so they can watch on the go. Google drive always need active internet connection to use. And unfortunately most ppl dont have unlimited mobile data. And even if they did, Its still not acceptable because the battery drainage due to Mobile data is way too high. While having a micro sd slot can give you practically Unlimited storage if you keep lot of sd cards. I don't see single advantage of no sd card slot vs yes sd card slot.
I have my phone memory filled with apps and games. Without sd card i cant even take Pictures.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2015none of them has microsd card, so why bother? their internal storage will be full in a moment.Random comments without factual test is simply making you blind. Isn't that what we think about our SSD on our laptops? It does take a while to fill up a 256 gb one, assuming you aren't a video producer or what not. Majority of people who will own a S6 are people who owns computer, plug it in, transfer, done, problem solved. You want your stuff on the go? Just download google drive into your computer and see your stuff there, it isn't that hard.
What will it take people to understand the engineering behind the design of the phone? I guess everyone that bashes phones that can't remove battery or expand memory are too narrow minded that they can't see where phones are heading. Phones are getting slimmer, faster and better. Most flagship phones are released after extensive test, and judging from HTC and Samsung, they are listening to majority of customers and of course, you just can't have it all. Like seriously, why complain about the phone? If you don't like it, then get something else. Not willing to accept the change? Well its there to stay.

Has everyone forgotten this is a camera test?
If you are that much worried about the SD issues go to one of other million S6 pages for the device in general to talk about the non removable battery and SD slot.
Lets talk camera here.
Jon (Swe), 09 Mar 2015Keep in mind that Google is mostly to blame for the removal of the micro SD slot. Due to googl... moreNot falling victim to these things was one of the best parts of Galaxy/Touchwiz.
Samsung re-enabled app data to sd and had full function of SD. Most others at least had full communication with SD. Sadly some could only read files off it.
And just because Google is doing this does not give a good reason to take the features away and OTG is not an excuse.
Honestly S6 looks more and more like a turkey when compared to edge. It has less battery, worse camera , it's bigger (worse screen to body ratio), it's decidedly less cool to hold and actually has no good reason for the non removable battery (edge has, its unconventional shape).
My only problem is that the S6 was released at all, it takes the light away from edge and S6 is a turkey. "Close Samsung, close but still you managed to fail".
