1701, 31 Mar 2015I did like design of Z3, but that IPS display was horrible and lacked features of S5. iPhone 6... moreYes, many people around like to make stories of what they believe to be true against reality.
I liked Sony Xperia Z/Z2 series design at first, but top/bottom bezels were too big and they had no amoled. People (here) like pure/stock android design. I don't. Sony's launcher has no personality and lack of many options.
I've met someone this afternoon who loves iphones (and owns a 6+) and who has gone through many HTC/Nexus 4, 5 and Sony Z2. He loved Sony Z2 for its screen. He told me he hated Samsung AMOLED for their saturation. I said really? What's wrong with them? Since S3 or S4 you can change the display mode. And while saying that, i pulled out my S5 from my pocket, with standard display setting and showed him my TripAdvisor automatic lockscreen. I said so ? He said "well" and didn't say anything anymore about amoleds. I still went to the settings menu to show him the pro mode [Adobe RGB certification] and told him, "just in case, since S4, we have that now".
m86k, 31 Mar 2015Yes, apparently black and white Edge will be the first colors available in many countries. I ... moreJust checked S6 and S6 edge 128GB are already sold out since pre-order open yesterday.
1701, 31 Mar 2015Looks like I have to wait for a while, to get green S6 edge only black and white is available ... moreYes, apparently black and white Edge will be the first colors available in many countries.
I have preordered my Green Edge too, i check several times a day my email to see if any news about it :D
I'll get the official back cover this week normaly, it has already been shipped.
Just a few points :
-i've met 1st person ever in my life with a spare battery last friday, and it was a battery for some "dumbphone" so a small one.
-I know only 2 persons with powerbanks and only 1 of them is using it really.
-I know only 1 person who bought S2 then S4 LTEA for microsd slot
-I don't know anybody listening to radio on their phone. Even teenagers listening to music loudly on speakers are playing mp3 files.
-Among all people i know owning a S5, none bought it for any of the reasons all guys are claiming here. Reasons for buying were : powerfull, camera, Android, size and screen.
This is what i notice while living in a 2 millions people city.
-About waterproof, 3 things :
1- Sony phones are bad example since i've read their warranty don't cover water damage.
2- Read that link http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s6_edge_survives_over_20_minutes_under_water-news-11720.php
3- S6 Active soon
And i'm sure if everyone is checking people in his/her life, they can come up with about same conclusions.

nance, 31 Mar 2015frst thing there is no BENDING on the iphone 6 or 6 plus,(if you want to bend a phone you will... moreI did like design of Z3, but that IPS display was horrible and lacked features of S5. iPhone 6 back is copy of htc m7/m8 the front is very ugly. Samsung was not about micro sd and removable battery, it was about features and amoled screen just to name a few.
1701, 31 Mar 2015gizmodo claims S6 has 56 bloatware installed. I did check out the phone, 16 apps were from goo... moreYeah, Apple just don't know how they will face S6 this year with just their autumn "refreshments".
They even validated a patent for using screens on phone sides right after S6 Edge announcement @ MWC.
They felt so secure after the bad image they gave to Samsung with their lame trial now i'm sure they are scratching their heads for finding a way to prevent Samsung entering their own market.
nance, 31 Mar 2015frst thing there is no BENDING on the iphone 6 or 6 plus,(if you want to bend a phone you will... moreLol, first sentence was a lie. But now here comes samsung giving in to the whispers and making a phone like all the rest of brands nothing to stop people from scattering other phones. What's the price difference between the 32, 64 and 128gb models? Non removable battery was a selling point which most of the other brands didn't offer, still haven't added radio and remove water proofing. One step forward two steps back sigh
nance, 31 Mar 2015frst thing there is no BENDING on the iphone 6 or 6 plus,(if you want to bend a phone you will... moreActually iPhone 6 plus does bend, with smallest pressure. Aluminium 6013 is used to make air-plane fuselage, and it's used in S6 and S6 edge. I did try other brands, I own both Z3 and S5. With regards to iPhone 6 it lacks features than android has, that's why it has dual core
The rest of what you said don't even make sense.
m86k, 31 Mar 2015Haha, no, i need to check that then :)
Apple talking with their own iAll bloatware, 24/7 pe... moregizmodo claims S6 has 56 bloatware installed. I did check out the phone, 16 apps were from google, 10 were core apps, 3 from Microsoft and the rest were just music and video app, milk music and video, email, facebook, messenger among others.
They even listed s health, s voice, facebook, instagram, milk video and music, messenger as bloatware. I'm glad I know every useful app is bloatware.
1701, 30 Mar 2015Few things there, Apple uses cheapest and weakest aluminium hence why you get the bending. ... morefrst thing there is no BENDING on the iphone 6 or 6 plus,(if you want to bend a phone you will bend ,try with note 4 it have a big display like iphone 6 plus )and sekond thing apple is using a premium materijals (samsung a chep plastic )And now the s6 and edge hawe aluminium (it is a ALUMINIUM not a titanium)but... the whole phone is cheep make,every fuc..g pice inside is with GLUE(if you want to change battery or the display you will hawe to paid a lot of money) thet is NOT A PREMIUM desing,compare disasembly on iphone 6 or 6 plus with s6 or s6 edge you vill see how apple have perfection in evrything ,it is wery easy to change battery or the display with NO PROFESIONAL HELP ,thet is ,not a air craft aluminum EVRYTHING is important,And another thing ...everybody loved samsung because it have SD card,removable bateries,not for the ALUMINIUM ,not for the quality and for the desing,if anybody want a good desing they will peak apple or sony or now in this moment xiaomy ,so if you ever used a iphones or sony or another brand you will know this .And for the specs i hawe samsung s5 ,iphone 6plus and note 3.there are wery simular in day to day use in the speed(iphone 6 plus is faster in a lot of thimes)it hawe only a dual core and 1 gb ram stil no laging and fast .It is important everything software and hardware not octa quad core ... (try and you will see thet i am teling the trye)so dont be a samsung fanboy try another brends and compare to see the reality and not the numbers and specs on the paper !!
ozzy, 30 Mar 2015Yes it has. but what does that help. After 2 years you would need replacement.. Will they repl... moreA few pages ago, it was after 1 year, now that we noticed S6 has 2 years warranty, it's a replacement after 2 years.. What's next? :)
Just don't buy it mate. It's like buying a supercar and complaining about its tyres you have to change after a while. If you look at it people buying it, are assuming it. (and don't go with "but they can change them themselves", they can but they won't).
1701, 30 Mar 2015Did you hear how apple publish article via gizmodo saying S6 has bloatware. Didn't know Google... moreHaha, no, i need to check that then :)
Apple talking with their own iAll bloatware, 24/7 personal tracking, unencrypted passwords etc.. So many scandals and yet people forget about them.

S6 uses aluminium 6013 used in aircraft fuselage, so it's very strong. The screen, camera, processor and memory of S6 are better than iPhone 6. Lets not mention multitasking and other features which are on shown on YouTube.
Design wise, S6 has great design and S6 edge is even better.
m86k, 30 Mar 2015S5 hadn't a terrific look, so they had to advertise for features. Now that S6 is fitting in... moreDid you hear how apple publish article via gizmodo saying S6 has bloatware. Didn't know Google apps, Microsoft apps and core phone apps count as bloatware. Apple's desperation is clearly desperate.
ozzy, 30 Mar 2015Yes it has. but what does that help. After 2 years you would need replacement.. Will they repl... moreFirst off by your logic pretty much every single person in the world must be clueless, since most upgrade after two years. Second you're buying a flagship phone if anything goes wrong which is highly unlikely, I'm sure you can afford to have the battery swapped.
1701, 30 Mar 2015Samsung has two year warranty for the battery. Yes it has. but what does that help. After 2 years you would need replacement.. Will they replace worn out battery?? They will not! After 2 years you loose capacity of the battery. You will need to replace it and pay for it. After 2 years the phone will cost maybe 250 USD used.. and you will pay 100 for replacement or buy a new phone. Non removable battery is just a trick to buy new phones after 2 years.. its clever and suckers fall for it.
