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
Hahaha..., 15 Mar 2015No memory card slot, Non-replaceable battery, No water proofing, Very pricey... Sure,they want... moreExactly,
Not to go to deep and mention that Apple already have beaten them with lesser hardware, lesser ads and in the meanwhile they have managed to be the top phone manufacturer with just 1-2 phones..... go figure.
[deleted post]Attack? When did I attack someone? All I have been doing is replying to people who replied to me.
Would you please point out my bias and misleading info?
Perhaps I'm wording things wrong, but as far as I know, I only state something that is present, or in this case, isn't present, and explaining the cons of this?
Am I not being "attack"ed by people telling me that Samsung is the best at everything and I'm an apple fanboy?

[deleted post]Are you referring to my Ferrari statement?
I'm not saying I'd not care. I put the original statement of 'sales matter more than what consumers want' by someone else in a different context to show them how ridiculous they sound.
Terrible story and date fate Samsung to come....
Won't say much besides:
Xperia Z meets iPhone6
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2015The display is better fact.
The SoC is much faster in cpu and faster in graphics, lesser powe... moreYes, there are many things the GS6 has improved on over the GS5 and its competitors. I agree with all the pros. However, I am merely saying it's not as good as it could easily have been, and there are some phones out there that are marginally slower, but include the missing features.
Yes, fast charging and wireless charging can be useful, but they will matter a lot less if one can have a battery that will last longer anyway. Charging is considered a nuisance whereas a big battery just means it'll last longer from an overnight charge. Sure, it'll be useful, but not as much as it would have been with a big battery as well.
ironbat, 15 Mar 2015Actually what's your point? will you ever stop criticising samsung. Me? I'll stop when I stop criticising every other phone out there.
I think it's our obligation as consumers to criticise and drive producers into the direction that is best for us.
For me, the two best phones are the LG G2 and the Xperia Z3.
They still aren't perfect because:
G2 - no expandable storage, quite a lot of devices (incl mine) have a display problem related to touch. Replaceable battery? Not needed on a phone with that good battery life.
Z3 - glass design makes it fragile, no IR port, quite big for screen size, similar to G2 but a lot more expensive. Same as G2 for battery
As a message to everyone, I am not a fanboy of any sort.
I can and will criticise everything.
Sorry if I am spamming and somehow wasting time online, causing the global economic slump.
Well this is crap. A glass back and a shit battery. How can they make a worse phone than the predecessor??? If this goes on I don't even want to know what shit the Note 5 will be.
AnonD-225521, 15 Mar 2015I agree that the screen will probably be better.
Are you sure they are better for the users? ... moreThe display is better fact.
The SoC is much faster in cpu and faster in graphics, lesser power consuming, and with throttle a good bit less than others. And it brings along with it Wolfson Audio DAC.
Yet because you are opposed to this device you pull the side track....Well it's only a little better. Does it really matter....
And fast and wireless charging are still useful regardless of battery capacity. That's just as bad as someone telling you that you don't need the larger battery or removable.
AnonD-374800, 14 Mar 2015Mico5 is a troll. He just keeps saying the same thing over and over. GSM can you please block ... moreUseful conversations?
I see his contributions as more useful than yours.
Listing negative things people may have to consider is more useful than basically saying "shut up and buy it because you're a dumb consumer and don't need to care about anything"
Would you not care if you bought a new Ferrari and it could only go 50km/hr?
Surely you wouldn't as they had to focus on the design to make the car sell, right?
Actually what's your point? will you ever stop criticising samsung.
