One thing you failed to mention in the review that I noticed, is the wider angle view of the new camera lens perhaps 24mm.
Guys if im correct this tested S6 has pre-release edition of software so lets wait for release version
any way let it be what ever specs might be there
with 5.1" screen only is real step back, 5.5-6.0 was better idea
By the way what's up with that inefficient Exynos inside?A bit of heavy usage and the battery goes flat in less than 3hrs.
Also it heats the back of the phone hard?
The S6 is the best looking phone from Samsung in a long time, and the Edge is just gorgeous.
Sadly, that battery life and mono speaker makes me prefer the HTC M9. The real surprise is the lack of a memory card. I'd expect that from a phone with a more closed OS, but an Android? Madness.
What I would like to see is a S6 compact: As fast as the S6 but smaller... with IP67, microSD, FM radio and good battery life.... I jumped from the S4 to the Z3c....

My question is: Did Samsung fire the whole idiot ... moreYou are not supposed to ask such savvy questions it hurts the fanboys and the sites that try to put on a brave spin for the colossal flop the S6 and S6 edge are proving it be once you put it to use. Those people who made pre-orders will be mighty angry if they cant cancel their pre-orders with no penalty. They should simply go ahead and buy the Note 4 or if they want something smaller, the S5.
It would be nice to know how much space a full hd video will take per min of footage. Especially considering the storage cannot be expanded.
I'm really torn between this and the htc m9 (when's that review coming out), latter reported to have poor camera picture quality, but has sd slot and better ui. Guess it all depends on price when finally announced

This phone is much more expansive than the iPhone. Look at the value conservation of Samsung Smartphones and compare them to apple. A 800 $ SGS6 will by no more than 400 $ in one year I guess. A 800 $ iphone can be sold for maybe 550-600 $ in one year. Thats mainly due to Samsung's bad software update policy.
Galaxy S5' settings app consumes 100 MB RAM. My question is: Did Samsung fire the whole idiot team of programmers?
My SGS5 is super-fast after full wipe. Install some apps and RAM is out because system consumes 75 % of it. Then it just gets laggy as hell.
How does the SGS6 behave in real-world circumstances where you have a lot of apps installed? How high is the memory usage of a clean install?

And as stated the Note 4 already provided these claims b... moreSony at least uses real innovation, like dedicated screen refresh rate and x-reality chipset.
Go have a look at z4 tabs 10 inch 2k ips screen, with sd 810 soc and only 6000mah battery it accomplishes upto 17h onscreen video. Cant wait for that review...
Same will be in z4 flagship, so...it ll eat this devices underwhelming results
Samsung as Upset alot of Galaxy phone uses who have been Loyal to them,and they have not Realised there Big Mistakes they have made Creating the Galaxy S6,the Galaxy S6 looks like Samsung are Trying to get the iPhone uses to Switch to there Phones,But then losing Galaxy uses who have got used to the Offers Samsung Offered but the iPhones did not Offer,Thats Why people chose Samsung phones instead of the iPhones,Even the Note 4 uses will turn there backs on getting the Galaxy S6,an they will be Worried if Samsung will do the same idea with the Galaxy Note 5,What will Samsungs Reaction be if the Galaxy S6 Fails to be Succesful,and will we get another Galaxy S6 Version that will offer the Option of Removable Battery or Micro Sd Card Slot,Galaxy S5 worth Better Value now than the Galaxy S6,as i am Charging Up my Galaxy S5 Spare Batteries now before i Going Abroad

Iff that is the logic....this exynos sucks bigtime in energy consumption
Choose one word to describe the Samsung Galaxy S6. Gorgeous. Powerful. Special. You better damn believe it
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2015That is far from what you have been saying and you just completely side tracked on what I call... moreSorry, too many people (or perhaps just you; dunno since you're anonymous, sorry) replying so I have to discuss many things. Might have got sidetracked.
Yes, the performance of the SOC is great. It's phenomenal.
If it's what you care about, great. But personally, I find that after the SD800, for the moment, the difference in everyday tasks is only a few milliseconds, and seldom, seconds. This is even more so in the SD810 phones of this year.
I just thought people would care more about hours and minutes of having a phone still running than being able to open and run things slightly faster.
I guess it's up to everyone's needs. Sorry if I was too aggressive with my opinion
