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.

This phone has been designed for the fashion conscious rather than the practical user.

For your info I own the S6 but the camera on S6 is worst than my nexus 6 and my iPhone 6 plus when it comes to indoor shoot totally YELLOWISH white balance everything even nexus 6 has way better camera than that leave a lone iPhone 6 and 6 plus.

Well, can you stop repeating same and same, without reading my comment??? Please!
I've said, that this review is made on NON RELEASED YET device. I've said also that S5 before the first updates AFTER the release DIDN'T have same battery life as now.
What is so difficult to understand my point????
Bet on that S6 battery life will be better. No way back.
I am so much surprized on those people wholike samsung,so much cheep compny,having no innovation,copy maker and sold their product only on markiting bases,their best innovatin is amoled,plz try yourself a hd video in s5 with sams video in xperia z3, x-reality must b on and then see the huge difrence,xperia gives you fantastic an stunning detail, and s5 miles behind
AnonD-126854, 16 Mar 2015While agree with your remarks about non-removable battery and no-SD support, I can not agree w... moreThe review indicates that the S6 battery is worse than the S5, Samsung has thus gone backwards. Fast and wireless charging are great if you happen to be near a power socket but irrelevant if you are not. Its no good having a really pretty phone with a wonderul screen if your constantly worrying if its going to die on you before the end of the day. That was acceptable even two years ago but its 2015 now and users expect a phone to last more than a day even with heavy useage.
Just received quotes for the standard model which stated that I would need to pay £44.50 a month plus £100 upfront for the 64 GB model with 4gb of data. Didn't bother asking what the Edge would be but I guess it wil be over the £50 quid mark. IMO asethetics of the phone are secondary to the functionality of the device as I would obviously buy a case for it.
Based on funtionality alone this phone seems pretty poor value in comparison to previous models, no expandable memory, worse battery life, no waterproofing and the camera isn't even as good as the one in the Note 4 in certain aspects. I think I will wait and see what LG and Sony come up with over the next couple of months. If anyone seriously wants this phone I would recommend waiting till October/November as the price for the Edge version may have dropped significantly by then.

And you all sammy fans have to get to a cath... moreYes , S6 is meant for ppl brainwashed by the huge apple's propaganda. We know what all the tech media and all other media were nagging all the time to "prove" their lovely Apple "supremacy". Right?
Well Samsung did it now. But not "all the way" as you said.
Yes, Samsung made us mad with no removable battery and no SD support. But battery of S6 is good and will be even better with the first updates(it has happen same with S5 before)
Display, camera , SoC , memory.....leave iPhone6 in the dust too, so how could you say "all the way"???
BTW how could you even have guts to come with your Xperia here???? LOL lol lol
No water or dust protection
Rather pricey at launch, including really steep memory upgrade premiums
No user-replaceable battery
No microSD slot
No FM radio
No stereo speakers
These are dreadful disadvantages for a priceyupgrade. Come to think of it s5 or a7 can still match it.

S6 battery is good even now(read the article) and better than iPhone6.
Remember how S5 also didn't have such good battery before the first updates????
S6 is not released yet.
Bet on , that after the release and first updates will have even better battery life than now.
Making review before the release is nothing but US iPatriotic move.

And you all sammy fans have to get to a catharsis...samsung has always tried to compete with apples flagship sales, and now has gone the iphone way, all the way...

All the phones , even your iCrap, before the release are not optimized, and after that get update. GS5 before the first software updates had not so good battery life like now.
BTW: Even now S6 has better battery life than iPhone6 though.
The only potential rival to S6 is iPhone 6, so I guess that's the reason why Samsung has abandoned the removable battery and the sd card slot.
