Galaxy S6 contains masses of bloatware. The phone comes with 56 pre-installed applications that can't be removed.

Also those who have t-mobile version of s6 and s6 edge, might want to go to setting, more connection settings, wifi calling settings, turn off wifi calling and switch to mobile data that will improve battery life significantly.

Just to add a little bit, I did compare the speed of running videos from micro sd card as compared with ufs 2.0 built-in memory. It took forever to load it off sd card in both m8 and s5. One more thing the qhd supersmoled display is the best I have seen, made my other phones look like entry level phones.
The camera quality upgrade is great, the new design is ok only (headphone jack at the bottom when people got use to it being on top for years, sealed in battery and sacrificed battery life to create a super thin phone).
Everything else is minor, benchmark numbers may look big but in real life use the phone's only a few nano seconds faster than quad core and up phones which doesn't justify the price on this phone, in such things as browser and opening apps. Lagging usually occurs when a app or video stream is large which uses up a large amount of a phone's ram and cache.
A ram of at least 1gb will prevent lags, fps (frames per second) also go a long way in having smooth video streaming and gaming so try using stream quality and gaming quality matching or just below your screen's display pixels (480p, 720p or 1080p). Not much content out there for 4k and especially 2k so you'll be stuck watching stretch 1080p vids.
Memory ram and Gpu is the main over 500mhz will help in lagless smooth gaming for gaming quality fitting your display. High gpu speed is the main reason why although iphones have 1gb ram and a dual core processor high end gaming is still excellent and some of the best on their phones.
I know its a lot to read but people do some research for yourselves to see if sacrificing sd card really made a huge humanly difference in read speed. Also with non removable battery, removal of water proofing and no radio still (seriously I found and old samsung phone probably worth $35 and it had radio why can't a $700 phone have it)
The new galaxy s6 I a humiliation to galaxy 1 / 5..
G6s ugliest galaxy ever made & easiest to crack.. "don't forget ur insurance"
i have new s6 32 gb ,and iphone 6 plus for about 5 mounth,here are my opinion..
desing are good on the both phones ,i dont like back glass on s6 ,easy to break and a lot of fingerprints
screen is a litle bether on s6 ,but on 6 plus is biger ,and a camera a litle bether ,but not very much of a diference
on performance there are no big diferences,some time s6 is faster on some pages,some time 6plus,very close in reality not in benchmarks test!!!
i thing on graphics 6 plus is a litle bether like on playing games
and the more important thing ...battery
on s6 i have from 3 .30 to max 5 hours on screen time
but on my 6 plus i have from my usage from 7.30 to 9 hours !!!

Double tap will launch the camera app. With regards to it being overpriced, well you do get the best hardware and performance and When you get it as part of plan it's only slightly higher than m9.
ijaz.ali, 12 Apr 2015can any body just tell me please , should i replace my s5 with s6 or not ? is it worth the money ?S6 is massive upgrade over S5. Having said that you already have one flagship handset, if you really want to upgrade you can do so upon expiration of your contract.

I think that phone is overpriced and first of all if you buy a original cover from Samsung it's very difficult to use left side controls

Until now, all my smartphones have been HTC. I've always preferred the build quality and Sense. My previous phone was an HTC One. It's been a brilliant phone with little to pick fault with. It's only flaw has been the camera. It's OK but not great. So my next phone was going to be an HTC One (M9). However I had a chance to compare this with the S6 and there was really no competition. The build quality on the S6 is great. It's a bit slippery in the hand but apart from that it's fine. The other thing that put me off Samsung phones in the past has been TouchWiz. It has always looked like it had been designed by 'Fisher Price'. This is no longer the case. It's still not as polished as Sense but it's vastly improved and very liveable with. The M9 isn't a vast leap on from the M7. The S6 is. All the reviews and comparisons of the S6 are generally fair and accurate. Finally, as nice looking as the S6 Edge is, it isn't as nice as the S6. The screen edges reflects light too much and when it's on it's back it's difficult to pick up as the edges are too thin. These simple things made the Edge unusable for me.

While I like the overall design and quality of the S6, it won't matter how nice it looks once there is a case on it. I used my Note 4 with a case, so I'm definitely putting one on this. I'll miss being able to put in SD cards and having all my media, but I'll use the cloud. I wish there was a bigger battery, my only complaint.
