m86k, 14 Mar 2015I disagree, until S3/S4, Amoled screens were dimmer and maybe other brands. But not since S5. ... moreYes, At 50% it may be brighter, but do you really use your screen that dim?
Everyone I know uses their phone at 100% outside and very bright even indoors during the day. So a 75%+ brightness equivalent on a GS6 would be or nearly be 100%, so battery life will not be that good.
Eh, maybe it'll be okay for you, but I am just saying this to warn others who may be like me and others around me
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2015This makes me laugh and want to buy it more. Sorry apple fan. Apple Fan? Really?
I've only had android-running devices: Moto Defy, Galaxy Nexus, Optimus G, LG G2, Xperia Z3..
However, I know what Samsung phones are like from friends and family, as well as display units (I always go to retailers in malls to have a look around).
I dislike iPhones; I consider myself a power user who also likes to be able to customise their phone with ROMs and kernels
AnonD-373771, 15 Mar 2015That does not alter the fact the moto atrix was the first phone with finger print scanner and ... moreDoesn't change the fact that Samsung is a copycat.
Apple at least make a technology simple and easy to use.
But Samsung blindly copy.
Don't introduced waterproofing,sammy copied immediately.
Touch Id same story.
AnonD-375137, 15 Mar 2015no low-light shot test? still test version guys, don't be such a hurryExactly what I wanted to say. They included the test shots from that pre-retail unit, not good. I hoped for a much expanded camera section samples, and comments, especially low light shots as you say.
no low-light shot test?
still test version
guys, don't be such a hurry

No memory card slot, Non-replaceable battery, No water proofing, Very pricey... Sure,they want to be as premium like Apple but they can't... They can only dream of becoming like Apple...LOL...!!!

You could not be more wrong about apple. Apple iPhone 6 is copy of samsung ativ s, and htc one m7 and m8. Furthermore all features in ios and iPhone have been copied from android, including nfc and swipe just to name a few.
Also apple pay is copy of Google wallet. The fact is apple copied SGH-Z610 and LG Prada and apple did steal names iPad, iPhone and ios.
furthermore no company is a parasite, but let me tell you apple is the one that copies. In fact headphone jack was moved to the bottom in iPhone 5 after Samsung moved had it in nexus s, among a long list.
Another fact S3, S4 and S5 are hardly medicore, their design is superior to iPhone. Touchwiz is not that bad at all.
The fact is you seem to apple fanboy, who makes up incorrect facts and believes them. might want to take it easy as you are very angry and want to troll and bash Samsung with made up facts.
[deleted post]I love the USB OTG feature on my note 4 for transferring files BUT it simply isn't a substitute for a micro SD card.
You can't comfortably watch a movie with an adapter and USB stick plugged into your phone.
I have had 5 Samsungs in a row now (S2 and all the Notes) but it looks like Samsung is starting to take their customers for fools (much like apple). Less features for more money.
I simply won't buy a Note 5 without an external battery and micro sd card.

Apple was the first to bring their touch based fingerprint scanner to phones. And you know what, the implementation was excellent and hassle free. It wasn't like the swipe to unlock bullshit in the atrix or gs5. I ask you this, why didn't Samsung have a touch based fingerprint scanner in the first place? Why did they even bother with a swipe based one? Because they're a joke of a company that thrives off theft as it was with the first Galaxy S to today's GS6
The names/trademarks of iPhone, iPad, and iOS were absolutely unheard of as in no one was talking about them, knew, or even cared about what these things were until apple put a product behind these names.
The difference between Apple and Samsung in terms of copying is one takes things that fits into its design language, the other one looks at who's number one and makes sure to take notes. One legitimately leads and the other follows. In this sense Samsung is a leech, a parasite, thriving off of someone else's legitimate work. Now that is infuriating.
We know Samsung's design language, look at the GS3, GS4, and GS5. Look at touchwizz. That is bonafide Samsung, and it's mediocre and disgusting. The shame of all android. They are, first and foremost, not designers. What they do well is make good hardware components, that is all.
Likewise, people who support this shit are disgusting. But that's just the way the world is, lots of terrible people sprinkled in with some truly decent ones.
AnonD-341196, 15 Mar 2015Fandroids have excuses for everything. Face it, the camera bump is ugly.just because you know something new from apple products, it doesn't mean apple is the inventor...
I think the S5 is better. Samsung really dropped the ball with the 6. My 5 is waterproof, has a bad ass camera, a removable battery and an SD card. The 6 is just an iPhone.
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2015The iphone camera sensor is smaller and lacking OIS so even slightly more smaller.
And is p... moreWhat exactly is the metal used in the phone? If it was aluminum, I'm sure Samsung would proudly say so. If it was steel, I'm sure Samsung would proudly say so. If it was 50% stronger than an iPhones aluminium frame I'm positive Samsung would boast about it.
No, I bet it's some tin, zinc or copper alloy with a painted on "brushed aluminum" finish.
Samsung missed the mark on these phones, should have stuck with the features that made the Galaxy phones popular and just upgraded to a higher quality of plastic.
AnonD-341196, 15 Mar 2015Is no one going to mention the fact that the bottom is a rip off of the iphone? Why cant Samsu... moreIt only looks similar because the speaker and headphone jack are on the bottom.
And because the frame and design apple copied from Samsung like the note 1 and ativ.
And the speaker grill is designed more like lenovos.
Should they have put the headset and speaker on the side? Or used square speaker holes?
Or use a triangle shaped frame?
And Samsung be original in reference to apple??? Lol.
Apple who stole the names iPhone, iOS, and iPad? Who copied the Samsung SGH-Z610 and LG Prada for design? And biya everyone's parts for their device? And uses all thought of tech.....how original indeed
AnonD-341196, 15 Mar 2015Fandroids have excuses for everything. Face it, the camera bump is ugly.Ithings have a denial and side track to everything.
Did I say I care how you think it looks or that people have to like it? Nope. You can think its ugly if you want. That is just side tracking from the facts I just pointed out. Without moving the camera or making the S6 a lot thicker there will be a hump.
For the iphone there is no reason or excuse
Is no one going to mention the fact that the bottom is a rip off of the iphone? Why cant Samsung be original?
