Speaking about companies, I think america is a place like any other, it has some good and bad companies...when it comes to technology, Apple is just like any other company, they have some decent and some weaker products. I, for one, like their iMac desktops and i think i will continue buying those...however, in the phone category, flagships from LG, Samsung, Sony and HTC will always have the upper hand, because Apple just isn't innovative enough...they rather spend millions on marketing which obviously works for them. Howver, you can't win critics, tech magazines or techy people with marketing, you need a bit more than that. Until that happens, the iphone will never even see a top 5 best smartphones in the world....
dear True Words. do not get me wrong. s6 as i said is by far the best phone on the market. super fast and very good quality feel. is just a shame not to work 100% and all the time the same. i tried using iphone but i hate the fact they want to use blinkers on you and also basic features of usability are given to people with a dropper. unfortunatly for android they just work. if that was not the case, apple would have been last in sales

But I think people envy Americans and their way of life, big cities, big cars etc. and associate anything American (Apple is an American company) as being glamorous and that perhaps by being seen with an American product will make others look at them and envy them thereby giving them an ego boost. It's just a perception I have.
Is it possible for Samsung to equip S6 with card slot, Radio and Java?
I love my Samsung S6 I have always had iphones but decided to switch to android and I love the design and layout of the S6 its easy to use and good features 10/10 samsung

I for example have a heavily dislike feeling about American products! Only people who think that American products are good or great are the people of America themselves! LOL
Besides, Apple can't be called American anyway. TSMC, LG, Samsung, how many companies help Apple to make that darn iPhone anyway?

Apple are successful because they are very good at advertising and promoting and will viciously attack anyone that gets in their way.
steliosm, 18 May 2015moved from galaxy s4 last week thinking it was a serious upgrade. battery improved a lot since... moreIt's just been released and I also had the s4 and remember how the phone was when first released it wasn't anywhere as good as it is now. I expect Samsung will be true to its word and release updates and improvements just as they did back then. To be fair if you don't use the phone for the web or gaming a lot any phone would of suited you. I'm quite a heavy user so I gain the benefits and see the speed difference. If you are still not satisfied you could always sell the device for a good price and get an older model plus you would have a lot of left over cash to put towards something else.
moved from galaxy s4 last week thinking it was a serious upgrade. battery improved a lot since the first 2 days but is the same as s4 as far as time of use. i only use the phone for calls-texts-email-viber and some browsing the net. never games or video & music playback. it easily takes me from 5.30 till midnight with 15 to 25% available. there were some widgets missing but i found them at play store and work fine. i am missing the carousel type scrolling of apps and home pages. though working on s4 lollipop it does not on s6. my biggest disappointment is that i was expecting a big improvement over the stability of the software. this did not happened. it feels and it is, the most powerful phone in the market now with the best camera and packed with features. since samsung decided to remove a lot of things to make the phone better on that part i wish it had more impact. i still get a lot of hick ups and occasional restarting is needed to reactivate the connectivity of 4g- wireless and bluetooth connection. wireless strength it is considerably lower for sure, compared to s4 and note 4. another thing that i did not like was the fact that they made the phone taller making it less comfortable to use with one hand. to finalise i want to say that samsung made a big effort but it didn't make the home run i was hoping for. for euro 745 and a contract for 2 years i do feel chained and sad hoping that samsung will come up with updates to improve it.
can anyone suggest me which one is the best phone. I m confused between s6 m9+ and lg g4.specs wise g4 is much better as compair to any.should I go for g4
krish, 18 May 2015I am not specifically commenting on s6 but all the phones of samsung has too many pree instoll... moreS6 doesn't have lots of bloat ware. HTC one m8 is an older phone and the rating would be for when it was released. Not many sites give the s6 a bad review only biased sites. You clearly don't know what you are talking about!!!!

Mr Apple, 16 May 2015Samsung stole lot of features from Apple, as for that feature its only iphone thar have it. Those who steal/copy a lot from iPhone are Chinese brands from China, not Samsung!
Pear, 16 May 2015It doesn't matter who the real boss is, because most people will still go for iphones year aft... moreI have a theory that Apple is mainly popular and well regarded because it is American. People have the impression (rightly or wrongly) that anything American is the latest and the greatest with the very best and latest technology. Certainly the very first iphone was a game changer but I think that others have now either caught up or surpassed Apple. The i6 is undoubtedly good but is it better?
Austraveler, 16 May 2015I left Australia at the start of March in 2012 to travel the world indefinitely. I'm currently... moreWow what an amazing experience. I am also in Australia (Melbourne) and I also had an S2 which was very good but now have an S4 which a massive step forward. Will soon upgrade again to an S6 or iphone6. Out of interest how do you spend 11 days in Antarctica. I wasn't aware of accommodation there.
