1.Available with a hybrid dual-SIM/microSD slot
2.No 4K video or 1080p@60fps
3.No MHL (but USB OTG is supported)
4.No notification light
5.Backside Look Are Similar

"far more" remember? you didnt said its depend.
base on what you said now if i watch 2hrs movie in s652 phone ill finish it faster than in s615 phone? lol
and if i play coc do my builder speed the building process? again no. lol
and why s652 is only quad core a72 if its far more power efficient than a53? why not octa instead? rofl

Sounds like you are loo... moreAs a customer who was looking to get one the battery life is not impressive for browsing despite the large battery and modest screen resolution. So why is that you see that feedback as mere 'complaining' hmm?
You sound just like a clergy member, always around to scorn those who question any aspect of the holy book. Only fanboys have this attitude.
Learn not to take criticism personally and then you will realize there is nothing here to think people are simply complaining.
Pretty easy to tell that this phone is not for me. Just read the no notification light in the cons list and that was enough reason to stop right there.
Osiris, 20 Feb 2016No LED notification light, really Samsung??? It's 2016 you knowAlmost nobody gives the LED notification anymore. Everybody is doing those Always On secondary displays, or the cover displays like HTC dot view or the one LG is coming out with.

nganghanimtonla, 20 Feb 2016s615 still consume less power than s652 as a53 consume less power than a72 :)No it doesn't, there is a misconception that slower processor consumes less power. The real answer is "it depends".
A53 is an in-order processor with less transistor budget because no transistors were put towards having instructions executed in out- of-order (OoOE) like the A72, this leads to less power being used because OoOE is power demanding. The caveat here is that this ONLY applies to loads/data sets that require very low processing power to begin with. The moment you start putting heavier loads not only are things done much slowly (therefore sluggish/laggy) you tend to be more at that A53's maximum core clock far longer to get that heavy work done. Where as on the A72 it would be fastest when it comes to the "race-to-sleep" condition. You put a heavy work load on the A72 and it will for sure use more instantaneous power for the time it is active but because the return on OoOE is pretty good that A72 core goes to sleep/low clock sooner and thereby ending up saving more power than the A53 would had it been given the task of handling that heavy workload.
The SD652 has both clusters, A53 and A72, the weak loads are run on the A53 but the heavier loads are tasked to the A72 and it is far more efficient because of the simple reason (yet complicated concept in terms of uArch implementation) "race-to-sleep"
Recall I mentioned "it depends" at the start of this post, this is because we all know the workload in today's smartphone usage is very mixed load, most of the apps today fall into the heavy loads with a large percentage, if the person does only whatsapp messaging, just sends out SMSes and makes cellular calls then you would better off with just A53s but that's not at all the modern smartphone's usage pattern. In the battery constrained mobile world "slow and steady" always fails the race, you need to fast and quick to sleep to deliver maximum battery savings.

but dont expect 30fps more like 20-30 fps you are likely gonna get.
A9 too big for me. Really love the A7, but the SD615 is a dealbreaker for me. They should have put that SD652 also in the A7.
Not for me.
But the Note 6 for me ! :) ?? hmm :D
I witing to the Note 6, only with MicroSD option.
That's the only reason not to buy Note 5.
For me Note to the business class , the A series of fashion mobile

Good for you.
You see, S6 for me can't do more then 5h of SoT (usually 4,5h and have to charge it afternoon) . And no, i do not use it to wach movies, it is a phone for job, some web browsing beside calls and office apps...
But, if you like to believe synthetic benchmarks..that's ok.
Just go and buy what Antutu recommends to you. Forget about what you read about manufactur's fine tuning to cheat at those tests, it is just a make up story from jealous people
