S6, or how to conform into planned obsolescence and an inefficient design in the search for more profit.
Too bad, the screen is a gem, but...
No Sd card, no extended battery option, no sale.
AnonD-394862, 12 May 2015Almost good but no water and dust protection as it was in S5.S6 Active

And no it is not easy for most people to remove the glass back. And then reseal it either.
You know darn well it isn't a waterproof phone then you expose it to the elements, you only have yourself to blame.
Just like a car is not a boat and if you drive it into the river hoping it will float and propel like a boat is foolish.
People who bring out non-waterproof phones should bring a few zip bags in case it rains one can zip it up in a Ziploc bag to keep out water.
the only i hate in samsung's design is the physical power button. i hope they will make it capacitive in their next flagship.
Mine is working perfectly, i use it quite heavy during the day and have 35% batteri left at the end of the day also i dont see the real issue with the batteri removal, never had the need for it SD slot was a decent feature however i have never even filled the 16Gb on my other phones, all my pictures are stored on cloud services.
By all means, don't get the Galaxy S6. It is perhaps the least waterproof phone ever made. I can report painful experience... even the dampness to which it was exposed, carried in a case in a backpack on a rainy day under an umbrella, was enough to do it in. And neither AT&T nor Samsung will do nothing (nothing) about it. So the S6 Active presumably will be as rugged as an ordinary cell phone... the S6 itself is no more rugged around water than a pack of sugar...

This would have been the... moreMost people don't care about the microSD card and even less people care about the removable battery. Besides, you can remove it pretty easily once it wears out in a couple years. You can remove it with household items and zero experience, so I don't see it as a big deal. And yeah I would like to have a microSD card but I'd rather have actual 64GB and 128GB of fully usable (since you can't ACTUALLY move apps to microSD without root + FolderMount) and FAST storage options in my country (it was hard to find a 32GB Samsung here, usually only 16GB versions available whenever I'd buy one. The 64GB versions never made it to America).
Samsung is willing to sacrifice the 5% of customers scared off by lack of those 2 features to gain the 10% of iPhone customers that they'll be attracting.
AnonD-384804, 10 Apr 2015The design is nice but its a couple of steps backwards. 1. Samsung ditched a USB 3.0 to go ba... moreIt won't just pop off. It's just like the glass on the front of phones, same adhesive and same concept. Do you see the glass just popping off of phones when someone leaves them in a warm location, like you suggest? I'm pretty sure we'd hear about it if that did happen.
AnonD-385351, 12 Apr 2015Bought a s6..really happy with it ..one major drawback which this retards at samsung didn't no... moreStop using TouchWiz. Install Nova Launcher instead. Set up homescreen and drawer as you wish instead of being forced into stupid 4x4 grid and no options in your app drawer.
Too bad they did not inclued a microSD card and a removable battery ! This would have been the perfect smartphone !
Samsung better include a removable battery and sdCard in the Note 5 otherwise I will choose an other phablet !
ravi, 10 Apr 2015Which phone better s6 edge sony z3Z3. Good performance yet better battery life means you can do more.
ravi, 10 Apr 2015Which phone better s6 edge sony z3They are two different phones in both casing and inside. The glass on the Z3 breaks easily (mine did just a couple of weeks upon recieving it) and that's a problem that may come with the S6 too. I like both phones, but the S6 is my favourite still...
Had my phone for about 2 weeks now, why does it show 1670ma in aboutdevice
full hitting problem in my S6 edge.......& no battery back up very bad phn
AnonD-386019, 14 Apr 2015another's phone with glue... looks cheap when you open the back tempred glass ... just like toy This phone is glued together?
