What on earth is the point of this review if you're putting the below statement underneath each section? It only means you revisiting most of the tests, therefore making this review moot??!? Let's hope this isn't the start of a new trend for GSMA... clearly a rushed review with multiple errors that you've attempted to rectify over the last couple of days... come on GSMA you're better than this!!!
(i.e. rendering most of the review pointless)
"The Samsung SM-G920F Galaxy S6 used for this review is a pre-release unit, using firmware version G920FXXU1A0BN, which was the latest available as of March 10. You can rest assured we will retest all of our proprietary tests once we get a production unit - hopefully within a week or so."

I'm sure you can find confirmation of these if you do some searching.

[deleted post]How much variation do you expect between pre-release and official release?
Based on s5 pre-release review here on gsm i expect this is an honest review of what official release S6 will be like.
Gibby, 17 Mar 2015Hey Samsung - if all the other OEMs jumped off a cliff - would u follow them?? ...Enough said ;)samsung already answered it with s6...YESS!!

alvin.adiwira, 17 Mar 2015The only downside of this phone for me is the QHD display. It's not really needed. 1080 would ... moreqHD resolution on AMOLED does not use any more battery than 1080p resolution as each individual pixels use less power to emit light due to their smaller size.
Combine that with the most power efficient 14nm SoC, DDR4 RAM and UFS 2.0 storage, it's a given that S6 should be one of the most (if not the most) power efficient top-end phone currently announced.
[deleted post]No one can recommend you unbiased site.
All the popular sites are created or overtaken by the Apple's propaganda team. That was the legacy of St.Jobs and his "thermonuclear". LOL. Even now, if some new tech blog get a little popular they overtake it, too.
Ironically even the sites named "Android..blah" and SamMobile are created by apple's shills , to fight from the back. If there are few independent , they are US PATRIOTS and of course bashing Samsung. Otherwise you must read German, but Apple blacklisted them.LOL

Don't flatter yourself iboy. LOL
Galaxy S6 wipes the floor with iPhone6 and 6 Plus, in every and each department. Even with this pre-release device that GSMA "reviewed". And you know it. Shall I mention all the points?
After the release of S6 and first optimization updates will have the best battery life on the market.

...Enough said ;)
The iPhone 6 did surprisingly well compared to the S6. The OIS definitely helps in low light and I have seen similar results between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6+, which does have OIS.
So, the S6 seems to have come to match the iPhone 6+ it seems, which in my experience had the best camera on the market so far.
The S6 seems to have remedied the biggest shortcoming of the S5, which was its poor dynamic range. I am happy to see Samsung finally bring a top notch camera to market.
The only downside of this phone for me is the QHD display. It's not really needed. 1080 would still be a great display and will make better battery life.
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2015What exactly is the metal used in the phone? If it was aluminum, I'm sure Samsung would proud... moreOn the metal side, Samsung is using high-strength 6013 aluminum alloy instead of the more common 6063 aluminum alloy. 6013 is an aerospace alloy designed to be much stronger for use in aircrafts fuselage panels, yachts, and mountain bikes and is 1.5x stronger and 1.2x scratch resistant than 6063 aluminum alloy.
