Utter garbage, this was to expected when they gimped the battery for the apple fan brain dead concept of slimmer metal unibody phones. Don't expect much from the S6 Edge either. The Note 4 is the best buy now for any Samsung user.
WOW, average battery life, no storage card or removable battery... will be sticking with my Note 4 thx Samsung.
I have owned 5 Samsungs now from the S2 but sense that Samsung is in the process of ruining the future Note 5.
I think you need another test unit. Every other reviews shows the loudspeaker blowing away earlier Galaxy versions. Heck, you can even hear it in Youtube hands on reviews.
[deleted post]But do you realize that this QHD 5 inch phone has more battery life than the HD 4.7 inch iPhone 6? :D Funny, right? And how much battery life does your iPhone get after 10 minutes of charge? 7 minute max? Lol
And you don't seem to know that the QHD screen is reserved for virtual reality. You don't know what that is, do you? I understand, but I believe iPhones will eventually get it in around four years from now, just like they did with the big screen :)
But so you may get some idea about VR, I'll give you this
But you can start dreaming that your iPhone is able to do that, because it will be able to, someday.. :D
Less Battery Life then S5. And no chance to replace battery????? NO, THANKS....
Haters are going to hate, especially those iPhone fanboys. IMO, S6 is gorgeous. No way it is a ripped off from iPhone. Some phones have speaker grids at the bottom as well. Having speakers to be at the bottom of the phone is very normal. As well as rounded corners. S6 camera is just so powerful and quick and with its f1.9, the DOV is simply amazing. No more fake bokeh like the ones from HTC. I'm glad that TouchWiz has improved. My Note 4 is working very good with TouchWiz, and I think S6 is even better.
Advise to those haters, just stop following any Samsung related news. Your lives will be easier that way.
Too thin to have decent battery life or any features, glass back so it will slide off of Velcro, and that stupid tactile home button. Save us LG
destro, 14 Mar 2015Good phone, there are some things inevitable:
Design is an Apple ripoff
The Double glass... moreThe design, shape, and frame look like Samsung. The iPhone looks like the Note 1 and Ativ. And the front and back look nothing alike.
The bottom looks similar ish because the round frame iPhone copied. The speaker grill like more like lenovo
[deleted post]So you purposefully exaggerate the downsides and act like they are the only things there. Completely ignoring the benefits. Then even make crap up.
Although the review lacked some detail I had hoped for, The review was to the point and direction was spot on.
Quite rational thoughts from the reviewer as well.
I'd have loved to see details like low light camera performance.
I would like to support to the general sentiment that we need storage/flash memory benchmarks as well.
Keep up the good work and bring more of these. Thumbs up.
AnonD-374655, 14 Mar 2015No SD-Card. No Replacable battery. Awful battery life. Im a Note user. If they do that to Note... moreFirst of all this review of battery life is on a pre release software and secondly the folks at gsmarena are known to jump the gun for giving early verdicts on battery life in the past and then correct the numbers later. Same thing happened for s5, note 4 and iPhone 6, initial sides reported for battery life were low and later they saw a significant increase. Don't trust these initial battery life numbers.
No SD-Card. No Replacable battery. Awful battery life. Im a Note user. If they do that to Note 5 then by by samsung, no real advantages whatsoever. They killed the main reason for their success
destro, 14 Mar 2015We may say that this S6 is the "non legitimate" son of a Z3 and iPhone6... LolFirst You Should Check One S6 Physically Then test the DNA . . LOL
[deleted post]i have had all iphones , i let my employees choose which company phone they want and i can buy any phone i choose and my car cost more that your house you muppit. my points were all facts . are you degenerate ? don't assume people are as broke in life as you are .
Do not worry about the battery life.
It was same with S5 on the first tests. But after first update the battery life got much better.
Same will be with S6 , FOR SURE(it might get update even before the release)
But still we miss the removable battery, even that the fast charging is great feature.
All those moaning and winging will ultimately buy it the moment they see it, the jealousy and pain most be unbearable for haters lol, watch this phone fly off the shelves haha...I feel sorry for Sony
Dear GSM arena,
I think you guys should add a review part of storage performance of a phone as well. things like Read/Write speed etc.
