[deleted post]At least with the s6 you can still connect otg drives and memory sticks . iphone will always have the most boring os in phone history and the s6 edge still kills it in design and specs . iphone has not really changed since it was first introduced . its the phone for dummy's and the elderly and will always be laughed at .
[deleted post]We may say that this S6 is the "non legitimate" son of a Z3 and iPhone6...
Good phone, there are some things inevitable:
Design is an Apple ripoff
The Double glass will cause problems to Samsung, specially cause there is a lot of "moony" people that will break it and then claim warranty
There isn't that much of wow factor on this version, instead of the pulse sensor they should include an innovative but utility new gimmick, like a laser pointer or something like that (just to mention a rough example)
I like the edge version, at least looks a little bit more "original"
The SGS6 has many compelling features and of course predicts the features that the next Note will have.
I'm disappointed about the battery life as well as no SD support (128gb internal storage is great but a lot of carriers in the USA will likely not carry the 128gb version).
I will definitely not be buying this phone, however I'll wait and see what the Note 5 has in store.
If anyone from Samsung is reading this please do the following for the Note 5
1. Retain the removable battery (one of the cardinal reasons I only buy Samsung phones).
2. Please retain the SD support or make the 128gb available on day one on all USA carriers (I currently have a note 4 with 128gb micro SD card and I'm already running out of space)
3. Please make the phone much thinner and lighter than the Note 4
4. Would be nice not to have a glass, fingerprint magnet back like the Galaxy S6.
If the battery is disappointing and or if I can't get 128gb internal storage (in case SD support is removed), then it pains me that I will not be getting the Note 5
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2015Yes @30fps, it's written in the review.Yeah... nice upgrade from the s4.. 64gb would be perfect.. most of the people in the world uses their phone for point and shoot listen to music on the go and of course call and text.. at home you have ur computer and music players for that. . So even though it doesnt have replaceable batt its ok.. if you want to have best battery life you buy the z3 plain and simple
[deleted post]Most of these points are wrong
- Snapdragon same as the Exynos??? Have u seen the benchmarks
- Also the battery is dependent on the user, not this review
- Front Camera is much better than that of the S5
I have been a loyal Samsung owner through the years and I was going to buy the Samsung S6 but with no removable battery I would not even consider it. I also prefer plastic (resilient and light weight) to a phone that looks like an iPhone. Why are people so in love with metal and glass? Most people put covers on their phones anyway.
The slow motion quality finally looks decent but still wish it records in at 480fps at least for nicer slow motion effect though. Hmmm, wondering why there are no low light samples, this is one of the more exciting upgrades of this camera.

finally.. the battery performance just average..huh. Samsung need to learn from this.. better processor dont really give you better battery life.. they should add 4000mAh battery instead of 2550mAh.. I usually dont like to charging my phone at least one day of use. It a bit annoying really.. how about others?
no one, 14 Mar 2015its a good phone on paper but in reality its not that great: 1.amoleds-inevitable burning col... moreBlinded by marketing,you must be talking about Apple. The amoled screen story wont wash here anymore, millions apon millions of us have had multiple amoled phones and NO burn in, 5 no 6 in this house right now from the jet phone right thru till the s5 NO BURN IN. Trolls awayy
Love this review. Reminds me of an article made for the unique Nokia N9 features in the blog section a few years back.
Hats of to the one writing it :)

AnonD-309678, 14 Mar 2015 Check the 360 degree picture. Display turns very green when turned to the right unlike the Note 4.lol seriously ?
Don't you see that it's not representative of the display but it's made for watching the phone globally?
