Any idea why the S6 has nothing in the standby time section in the stats? I thought GSM Arena did their tests?

Lack of space however is ridiculous. It is one of the thickest flagship's ever to exist. And it's battery capacity is week for its size.
" The camera lens does not offer optical image stabilization, which according to HTC is mostly due to lack of physical space inside the device, as well as quality control issues, meaning it's hard to mass produce up to high standards."
Hence, HTC's ignorance and arrogance continues.

Sorry to burst your bubble but both of them brought HTC near bankruptcy. Other than the front facing camera the M9 is nothing but a downgrade and i bet lots of people who were waiting for the M9 reviews bought iPhones after reading the M9 misery.
Using the same, but refined design is only logical.
It would be silly to change it
But no ois?
Same volume speakers? When even last year they are practically the same as speakers in 2009?
Same screen.... Except it's actually slightly dimmer and more reflective?
Thicker than before with a tiny increase in battery capacity and much worse battery life?
Those are some of the things that just don't cut it. In the end the phone is still nice, but so held back.
It's tempting for the speakers and now that it has a decent camera.
But no OIS is just ridiculous for a flagship.
And I have trouble bringing myself to buy another phone with the mediocre Qualcomm Fluence noise cancellation (which sadly has come to dominate the market). I wish HTC would go back to the Audience chip, like they used whay back with the One X (and which Samsung still uses in the Galaxy and Note phones).

Aadrian, 23 Mar 2015Nice design, so much better than samsung galaxy s6. This phone is better in the android world.... more
In terms of look htc one m7 and one max are the best. Performance wise m8 is the best but the asymmetrical speakers in m8 and m9 looks weird. There may not be any boom box or any stereo device having one small speaker/grill and the other one larger in this world expect m8 and m9. Htc may be the only company coming with such an odd design for some meagre improvement in sound. Like in m7 and one max They should have placed the sensors on one side and the front cam on the other side on the top bezel so there would have been enough space in between to put a speaker grill equal to the size of speaker grill on the bottom bezel.
Exynoss 5433 on note4 provides worse battery saving than 14nm 7420 on S6 . Note4 has battery not much bigger Than M9s and smaller than Z4, and yet better battery life. So I'm pretty sure the Sd810 will never be better on battery drain than Exynoss 7420.
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2015Yikes... Toshiba makes camera for phones? You learn something new every day. Thnx :) Nokia uses Toshiba sensors for the purviews
Disappointed with M9's rear camera. Still waiting for LG G4 and XPERIA Z4's announcement.
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2015Yes, we know, but something went seriously wrong with the SD 810 development.
If you take a... moreExynoss 5433 hits ~4500 on Geekbench. Almost as high as the 7420, which has the same architecture, but faster ram and 64bit enabled.
And it does that inside a phone. So I really doubt the Sd810 has the potential to get there... sd820 may surpass it and compete with 7420, but hey 5433 was released past year...
Quit your fanboyism, read whole review and do some maths before spamming darkraver, you re annoying.
