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.
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2015nothing can beat a phone with removable battery and extra battery kit.... lolAgree
But bashing the battery life of pre-released S6 device is PATHETIC.
Even now S6 battery life is better than iPhone 6 , so imagine what will be after the release and first optimization updates.
I hope they'll improve battery life. At least 70h endurance, 9h web browsing with final firmware. Current results are unacceptable.
suck battery life and now worsen with non removable battery... samsung goes down for sure
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2015So you talk about your beautiful planet. But you didn's say how Z3 is better than S6. Only men... moreYou just dont have a sense of humor do you...
Wasnt comparing z3 to s6 but xperia flagships to samsung flagships.
The comparison was in ui fluidity and responsivness which s6 just as any samsung lacks...its TWizz after all

I... moreInteresting indeed. A massive improvement over S5.
Oh God, hope Samsung will keep their good work continue until Note 5, I am expecting 8 hours screen on time then.
Interesting information about battery life.
The white option so boring, blue for S6 and emerald for S6 Edge look better.
darkraver, 16 Mar 2015Well , certainly not on yours, duh... Its like, you sammyfans live on a mass overpopulated ... moreSo you talk about your beautiful planet. But you didn's say how Z3 is better than S6. Only mention the UI that is only metter of taste(and functionality)
NeMo, 16 Mar 2015hmmmm, battery life is terrible and I doubt that wireless charging helps much :(
Now, we al... moreTerrible?
Are you insane? Or you didn't read the article? The battery is GOOD even now.
Besides this is prerelease S6 unit. S5 was also not so good battery before the first updates.
Wait for M9 ignorant, and enjoy. LOL
hmmmm, battery life is terrible and I doubt that wireless charging helps much :(
Now, we all waiting for m9 endurance!
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2015Better?;)
May be on your planet?Well , certainly not on yours, duh...
Its like, you sammyfans live on a mass overpopulated giant city planet, all messy and fastliving...
Whereas us sony fans...we love our nature nourished planet, peacefull, quiet and bohemianlike....
For those who were to smart to think :
It's officialy said in the review :
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.
Scamsung, 16 Mar 2015Please don't compare high quilaty phone (iPhone) with copycat master (Samsung). For your info ... moreso u got samsung s6 before GSM arena could get it(production version)...
it amazes me as to what extent people can go up to ..
dude, ur druunk.. go home.
Be Cool, 16 Mar 2015"The review indicates that the S6 battery is worse than the S5" Well, can you stop ... moreWell the evidence to date suggests otherwise and to be honest it doesn't come as a huge surprise given that it has a smaller battery to feed a more power hungry screen. This phone has been designed for the fashion conscious rather than the practical user.
