I have been using the Samsung S6 for almost a month now. It has been a excellent experience so far, as for as H/W concerned. Only thing I have to fight, compared to iPhone5S I had earlier, is the confusion created to Android and Google applications. Being privacy conscious, I am always worried about various ways, Google apps tries to steal all the information from phone. Even though there are settings to disable lot of these open doors, lot of it is hidden, complicated and differently worded in each place. Some of this get reset when you end up crashing the system and restart.
S6 is a great phone, much better than my previous one, as long as you don't care about the Google data issues. I wish, I can run iOS on this or some other OS, to escape from privacy concerns.

Also if your bringing up battery why not Sony which has got 2 days. Or HTC one again stop being a salesman for a certain manufacturer they owe you nothing. It's up to him don't push because he might be stuck with a device he don't want for 2 years or more. Don't lie either Samsung has been making phones a lot longer then iPhone so don't make false claims because it just make you look more stupid.

If you are choosing S6 after one year you will definitely face lots of problem like copitability problem with the new OS version of Android and is the basic reason and problem with any Samsung Smartphone secondly battery drains very fast. These are the major issue and some minor problem you have to face like touch issue camera quality.

The problem is apple users will swear by the iPhone for the software and android users will go for the best hardware. It comes down to what's good to you after all you are the one that will be using it. What I did was look on YouTube and watched lots of reviews. Also I went in stores and played around with the phones. I nearly purchased the iPhone 6 but I have the 5s which is still a top performer and the ip6 didn't seem to much different to what I already had other than a larger screen with a slightly better camera. Then I moved towards the HTC m9 but again seemed to much like what was already out there in previous models. Then I had a look at the s6 edge and had a play with it and it stood out from the rest. I'm no Samsung loyalists because I had a Samsung s4 in the past and found the build and the software annoying and jumped straight to the iPhone 5s when it was released. My wife stuck to Samsung and got the s5 which is basically another s4 with a better processor. I have also got a Sony z3 compact which is good but I wasn't fully satisfied. I like to have better so ended up with my s6 edge. My choice my phone.
From the specs sheet the phone looks promising, other than the non-removable battery, but I can live with that like I did with my old Moto E. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to experience it yet.
seriously confused between iphone 6 and galaxy S6, i love the smoothness of iphone and open ecosystem of android....iam using iphone 4s now,want to upgrade...but in confusion....anyone please say me a solid reason to stick with any of the two

Sorry you spent money on another device and now trying to shoot down other top phones that are better to make you feel good. Trolls tut!!!

Don't try using little issues from the internet before making out your an expert. I use my hard earned cash to pay for a device that quite frankly is the best. If you want a review about the phone just have a look on YouTube there are plenty all saying the same thing the s6 is at top of the food chain so don't be a hater just go in a shop and have a play with one like I did and you will see why it's the top device. I have no reason to put one manufacturer against another I just want the best technology for my hard earned money. At the moment it's Samsung next year it could be iPhone. I just go for what's best at the time, loyal to myself not a manufacturer.

Why so poor rating on this phone?
I have Samsung Galaxy s6 for a month and I can say that this is the best Samsung phone ever built. You have best productivity phone in your hands. No lags,best performance, fluid in everything, it has very solid build and it is beautifull. 32Gb is enough for everything. You have cloud integration 100Gb free so storage is not problem for me at all. No issues at all.
Do not misguide the people about this phone. This is the phone that is worth to buy. Forget about LG G4 , HTC M9, IPhone 6... They will catch up this phone features and speed after maybe two years. This SGS6 will still be better and faster than HTC M10 and LG G5 even after one year. They don't have samsungs technology yet.
Hope that this helps for someone.
Yaskur, 10 May 2015Why not like other s series cause it non removable battery???Because Samsung wants to attract iPhone users
OS1990, 09 May 2015specs wise LG G4 is better than S6 but i still love S6 coz its slim and lightLG G4 isnt bettervthan Samsung S6 in any way
Better you read the comparisons before you jump into such silly conclusions!!!
Yaskur, 10 May 2015Why not like other s series cause it non removable battery???You have fast charging which is really functioning
Why do you need to remove the battery !!!
i had owned my S6 for almost a 3 weeks.. sharing my experiences to u all who planning to get 1 for them self.
1. Non removable battery is not problem for me. For 2550mah battery can last 9-10 hrs for heavy usage, and 10-12 hrs for average usage. The longest last me for 15 hrs. Enough for a daily use for work hour.
2. Performance very good & smooth. Haven't see any freezing yet. Internet or call quality work very well.
3. The camera work very well, it took very nice & fast photo. Low light shooting is better cos I compared it with my wife Note4 in some darker place. And the 2k screen is just beautiful & sharp.
4. Very nice designed, slim & light. Sound nice & loud
5. The improved finger print & fast charging is nice
1. Sometimes might feel quite hot.
2. No SDcards. Actually im fine with 32GB memory.
3. RAM issue made app f.close sometimes,wait 4 update.
