if I have expandable storage, I can purchase 16 GB version, put a 128 GB SD Card, which will be really cheap as compared to getting the 128 GB version, and I can still gave more that 128 GB storage, whic is removable, if the phone goes bad, I still have my data..
Hope you get my point

But never mind your comment, I know how much I use a phone and...this would be a disaster of batterylife for the money I would pay
This the the best samsung can produce right now. Best display. Brilliant touch response . Best and beast cpu 14 nm a57 and a53 with big little . Average gpu mali t760 mp8. Average battery life.Average sound.Average after sale service. Poor design copied from iPhone 6. Poor pricing policy. poor resale value.not premium as iphone 6
Mico05, 14 Mar 2015 the point is G3 has bigger screen 5.5"and FIRST TO USE QHD! a 2014 flagship not 2015! ... moreG3 was definitely not the first to use QHD and LG sucked at it to begin with. Get your facts right bruh

Please GSMArena review the S6's OIS against other phones. This should have a standard test for all phones that include it, like you do with other tests of yours.
I am a bit confused about the camera. In the still and video parts of the review it appears that the S6 has the best camera ever (lets forget PureView cameras for now ok?). Also when they took pictures with S6 at MWC on low light conditions against Note 4 and iPhone 6, the S6 was clearly getting more light on some shots, but when you read the conclusions part of the review it literally says Note 4's camera is better.
So Note 4's camera is better except that S6 is better for low lighting? And also S6 is less saturated and software sharpening has been reduced but the Note 4 is better? I mean if there was something to criticise about Note 4's camera and every Galaxy before S6 was probably color saturation and software sharpening right?
Can somebody help me with this please?
I hope LG will give a solution to my current problem
then my s5 will be replaced by G4
i prefer a bit thicker phone with bigger removable battery than a thin phone with small non removable battery!

atleast there are two major reasons
1 poor battery life compared to my s5
2 I'm enjoying my s5 for being a water resistant phone and one reason that i'm truly confidence whenever i go with my phone. but now how can i upgrade to s6 for these?
also the importance of micro sd is also a plus factor to me one reason why i loved sammy for long time.
Mico05, 14 Mar 2015Better CPU better RAM?
the real life performance is not that big difference.

Actually it has been said many times the screen is even better than note 4. Hence best screen of any smartphone.

better screen? not a big difference
but the lack of micro sd card slot is a big difference
the non removable battery s a big difference
the poor battery life is MOST IMPORTANT and its a big difference to most people and sammy fans!
WATER RESISTANT is a big difference too. and its really hurting us since our s5 is a water resistant!

It s equivalent or worse in batterylife to iphones, my friend ditched iphone cause that batterlife really annoyed him, in 1 year time he had to charge twice in a day...
So...enjoy your wannabe iphone. Galaxy S6

1. Can the stock camera app shoot in RAW?
2. Can someone confirm that full-disk encryption is off by default?
2. Can we disable Quick Connect and S-Finder from the notification slider (w/o root)?
3. Is there a way to disable immersive mode (full-screen) on stock apps like Calculator and S-Planner?
4. Can you re-run the browser tests to include the stock Samsung browser? The iPhone 6 has proprietary optimizations too.
5. This is a non-final build and the battery life should hopefully improve on the release build. Please update the review when it's released.
6. What's the standby time like? How much % battery does it lose overnight?
6. The low speaker loudness is concerning. But on YouTube, I saw a video comparing the S5 vs. S6, and the S6 was definitely louder.
7. Under direct sunlight, the brightness increases when in auto-brightness mode to 542-784 nits, according to DisplayMate. So shouldn't the sunlight contrast ratio be calculated with auto-brightness mode turned on?
I am also interested in how it compares to the iPhone 6/6+ re:
1. Touch latency
2. Audio latency
3. Storage speed, with h/w encryption
4. Booting and rebooting time
