Anonymous, 06 Jun 2015I cannot see any new thing in recent smartphone.Hardware wise.I can see everywhere same thing ... moreWireless charging and Samsung Pay--which soon to be available--are innovations....and in near future there will be more cars that can highly interact with most of smartphones...isn't that exciting...?
Random User, 06 Jun 2015I have used Nokia, Sony, Motorola, Samsung, HTC and iphone. Personally i think Samsung is over... moreFrom what benchmark shows, S6 processing is really fast compared to the other phones...plus another reason it being expensive is because it comes with lots of innovation...Samsung Pay and wireless charging..^0^.....
missy11, 07 Jun 2015Samsung Galaxy S6 is more expensive comparing to other Smartphone, here the some reason. 1.... moreWell I know it is expensive, but the overall experience of using this great phone really delivers...and you can just for for afew months if money is an issue before you buy it...^~~^
Random User, 06 Jun 2015I have used Nokia, Sony, Motorola, Samsung, HTC and iphone. Personally i think Samsung is over... moreMobile hardware may be cheap as you said but the assembling process is very complicated by using a lot of machinery and equipment. Even the manucfacturing of this hardware itself is complicated. We pay the manufacture labor put into this. How easy is it to assemble glass and metal into 6.8mm thin phone compare to assembling plastic and glass into 8/9mm phone. Samsung also do big marketing and advertising for their phone unlike other phone and run numerous physical store around the world. Other android sells cheaper because they are made from plastic and aluminum with simple manufacture process. They barely do any marketing except for online poster or ads. Smartphone like Xiaomi amd Huawei sell their phone online instead of physical store which brings down the price even more. These cheap one usually have good spec on camera and display but never impress on the chipset or CPU with low ram and low internal memory. Some cheap phone would go with high spec chipset and cpu performance but fails on display and camera. Price is made genuinely based on the real cost and allocated profit. There is no such thing as illegal pricing yet since no phone is overprice because if there is, Samsung would be in court by now for overprice phone.
Used S6 not even 1 month. S6 battery is too bad. 2hrs of untouch.. Battery from 100% goes to 87%.. used Asus Zenphone 5 for a year.. 2hrs of untouched.. only 2-3% dropped..
Samsung Galaxy S6 is more expensive comparing to other Smartphone, here the some reason.
1. Premium and Rare Design
2. 3GB of Ram and Octacore Soc (Samsung)
3. 64 Bit
4. Curve SuperAmoled Display and Metal Frame
5. High Quality Camera Lenses
6. Premium Interface display of Android firmware that cannot see on other devices
I have used Nokia, Sony, Motorola, Samsung, HTC and iphone. Personally i think Samsung is overpriced, why?. Any android phone can perform well with high speed hardware specs and the hardware specs are very very cheap($10USD maybe cheaper). Mobile Software design is not easy and kinda expensive to develop. In a long run Samsung failed to perform well and Why other android phones selling way cheaper than Samsung ??. Kindly don't get fooled by hardware specs.
SpaceWarrior, 06 Jun 2015So you rather see S6 be exclusive to Tizen? Sadly, most people use Android throughout the worl... moreSorry to interrupt....i want to see tizen,meego,sailfish or ubuntu, firefox or any new os on s6 rather than android.bcoz now a days 90% manufact uses android.so samsung there is nthng invovativ on software side. its come from google.

Display: ppi race.Battery :more mAh.Same form factor,front side touch screen behind cover.no new design. I want to see something new invovative thing.

Sadly, most people use Android throughout the world...that probably will not happen. Glad you are a loyal fan to S6 like me, I hope S6 will do better later this quarter. S6 is a masterpiece just like Note 4. It is so beautiful and easy to use holding in hand....^~^
Purchased 4 days ago.ago . observed poor battery life. Except this overall phone is good in every aspect
Samsung company I've been like | I just fell in love with the Samsung Galaxy S 6 phone. Samsung takes all the products I accomplish. But one thing I've been wanting for the Samsung phone to create your own operating system and saying goodbye to the Android.

S6 user here.super fast,many useful features.can play any games.camera been praise by a lot of my friends.battery can last for a day(working day).2/3day top on non working day for me.reception is ok in remote area.still got connected in elevator.can change theme everyday.this is 1 of my good choice.tq
Battery life of S6 is really cool, possibly due to the 14nm cpu !!!
Running the S6 dual 32GB, card1 always with 4G connection, card2 with 2G phone sim.
8 hours (12am to 8am) with data always on, whatsapp, email, weather sync always on. 4% used. ~0.5%/hour.
Working day with over 200+ email per days, tons of whatsapp, consumption is around 0.85%/hour (screen off).
Consumption during screen on and internet surfing,whatsapp,email with 4G is around 12%/hour.
I am a previous user of S4, comment to S6 is it last much longer than S4, roughly 30% min, particular cool in standby consumption ! No difficulty to last for a full day for heavy user.
Forgot to mention, I rooted the phone and stopped all Samsung apps.
So I'm using the S6 from 5 days. I am a normal user who plays games, listens to music and chats a lot on facebook and serfs in internet.I managed to get 35 hours using this device.For a device which haves QHD RESOLUTION AND 577PPI handels alot better than the S4 ir even the S5. I get 4 hours and half on screen time of the device. So whats my opinion? ITS GREATE. I haven used such a powerfull and sexxy device before.
ankush, 06 Jun 2015Frnd what about his battery life...??? Does it last a day.?? I want real opinion from you ... moreI am using this phone abt 2 month and tbh batterry life is excellent wid normal usgae i can get 2 days without charging and in heavy use 1 day.
Ed, 06 Jun 2015I won't say that this phone is beautiful...from the front it looks like dozens of other Samsun... moreI think that is why people want S6 Edge than S6, because~~~~just like you said~~~~S6 looks not thay different from other Samsung phones. However, the hardware specs are the same, but S6 is cheaper, so that's one of its advantages over S6 Edge..:-)
