buyer, 22 Oct 2015will the s6 lag if it was already used for a year ? should i get the s6 or the OP2 ?Galaxy S6 is definitely better and more future proof than Oneplus 2, no matter how much OnePlus wants you to believe against it
So I have been using Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920FD) and here's my insight on it:
==》 Design & Handling:
The design is somewhat industrial. It looks good and everything but it's just too common. Also, the back is a fingerprint magnet (visible even on my white device) and the frame tends to warm up (not scorching hot!!) when used intensively and could be a bit uncomfortable. Very slightly raised corners helps a great deal with handling too.
==》 General Performance:
The device is quite snappy and has a lot of raw power, however don't think you won't run into a couple of hiccups every once in a while. While they might be small, they are still noticeable. Also, watch out for RAM usage, Touchwiz uses a lot and autostarting applications can bog it down even more.
==》 Screen and Audio:
Screen is just so superb. It's supremely sharp and combining that with infinite contrast and maximum brightness, it remains perfectly legible even in the brightest of conditions. Viewing angels and colour rendition also strike home runs. Overall, it's the best screen I've seen on any device yet.
Audio is not the loudest, but good enough. The output quality is amazing though, and 24-bit FLAC support is also appreciated.
All I'm going to say is that it's good enough. But I've seen better.
Superb sharpness, excellent dynamic range, great contrast and colour rendition. However, no native RAW support (third party applications needed, best result "Camera FV-5") and no manual shutter (max 0.5 seconds time limit using third party applications).
This must be noted that all this subjective to personal opinion, I myself is a power hungry user and while I'm writing this, my phone is at 14% and I've been using it with WiFi on for the last 6 hours, with on screen time 3.5 hours. It was at 94% at 8 o'clock in the morning.
One of the best mobile Phone i"ve ever used.. i use to dislike samsungs, but this one is simply the best.
will the s6 lag if it was already used for a year ?
should i get the s6 or the OP2 ?
I heard that they are rolling out android 6.0 for s6. So are there any hardware changes expected and a new model will be launched or its just a software update and I shouldn't wait for a new model of s6 and just grab one and expect an updated on that.
Cristopher , 21 Oct 2015Has anyone bought the blue one?... How does it look? I find blue ugly, black or white are better. In my opinion, blue is too shiny

Overall great phone, BUT....
Samsung's losing battle with RAM consumption: Coming from an S3 which was an incredible device, it had 2GB RAM, on average you would have about 850MB free. Now with the S6, 3GB available, yet somehow you still get about 900MB free.
Call/Text issues: At times calls will go straight to voicemail with no indication that you have received/missed a call. This happens at random so you wouldn't know when to expect it. This issue somewhat applies to texting as well, although they will eventually come through....all at once.
Random irrelevant issues: not a lot of variety for the homescreen/lockscreen clocks, (personal preference) the phone could use a better "Black Theme" with more appealing icons, and finally on the clock icon - the second hand does not continuously update, seems like they tried to go for an iPhone style icon and failed.
Other than that, the hardware is excellent, it's quick, both cameras produce great quality pictures, the display is brilliant, its speakers produce a very rich and enhanced sound for both calls and media.
I posted the screen shots of battery life of my s6 on Google plus. You can see them by clicking link above.
On screen time is 5 hours 25 minutes and 17% battery remaining yet.
It is all how better you understand your smartphone.
I keep WiFI, location and auto sync always on but use network mode on 2g and keep
Motion sensor off
Smart stay off
lori, 20 Oct 2015Go for S6 edge plus. Much better.in today's technological world, it is hard to make something original, all borrow from each other and make similar devices. This time Samsung with future model s7 copies lg v10 dual selfi camera and hi fi audio
It's the really the best. The performance is great. The display is perfect. Camera captures perfectly. And there are alot of functions that is mind blowing and fun.

P.S I am not much into games,And I prefer a Good Camera with better Battery..
Help me Decide,
I purchased note 5 one month ago but was very disturb with its size. Thank God that I found as a defective piece and I return it and got a s6. S6 now comes with 5.1.1 and I am very pleased with its battery performance which was the only concern to me. It gives around 5 hours of on screen time which is very good in my opinion. It's quite comfortable for single handed use and have IR Blaster. Of course memory slot would be better, else everything is great. I don't have any problem with non removable battery, my old phone was LG G2.
