What about weight added to a phone with a larger battery ? Safety (in case of explosion for example)? Charging time? Average battery usage ratio per day which Samsung surely has surveyed with their autoreports ?
And i'm sure there are many other questions/factors which we all can't think about since none of us is working for them.
So it's cool to try to look smart on a blog, but i would find you way cooler if you had designed the internals of a S6 or any superior phone.
You are trying to make points just to entertain yourself. In the end, we will buy S6 and enjoy it as all MWC visitors did while you'll go on debating about how you are right.
[deleted post]So you insult others and pretty much anyone who doesn't agree with you is illogical, good luck with that mindset.
Also might want to separate out your argument so it's easier to read. Thank you for your comment

You... moreQuite funny you're trying to get rise out of me, sorry not going to work. You can't simply be more wrong about my response it's actually on point and valid, I did back up what I said. Only if you would please read my post again and do some research.
As a person who claims my knowledge is limited, you have don't know why 14 nm exynos is more energy efficient. Exynos 7420 has reduced size, hence there is smaller distance between transistors which in turn results in better energy efficiency and greater processing power. However there is drawback due to current leakage which is overcome with including thin silicon which encompasses conducting channel.
Also as you claim to be a professional you called the new memory of S6, usb 2.0 instead of UFS 2.0. I'm sure that the innovative S6 battery which charges in mere 78 minutes is cheap. Also 14 nm achievement actually resulted in samsung manufacting them for qualcomm and possibly nvidia.

The qhd screen of S6 and S6 edge actually use less power than screen on S5. I'm sure you must know about 14 nm exynos 7420 which is well more power efficient than current snapdragon 810 and new UFS 2.0 memory which consumes less power compared to memory of other smartphones plus faster read and write speeds.
I can tell from first hand experience, try loading a 4k or even full hd file from microsd on S5, it takes quite bit to load certainly longer than it should.
Please don't generalize, did you ask every Samsung user why they choose the galaxy brand. Some like features of touchwiz, some the super amoled screen which is the best screen of any smartphone. It only Takes 78 and 83 minutes to charge S6 and S6 edge respectively.
Display mate already crowned S6 as having the best display among all smartphones. Let me ask you settle for inter core 2 duo when there is core i7 cpu around, this is the same case for exynos 7420.
With regards to qhd display yes you can see the difference, the whole rumour of not being able to see the difference is apple's marketing since they have not yet incorporated that in their handsets (just like apple's stance on larger screen and nfc mobile payments).
Radio can be useful, but that's one feature which was removed from S4 onwards.
Also Z3 compact is great device albeit not being flagship, sony xperia z4 or even lg g4.

Your knowledge about electronic devices as well as OS architecture is very basic and it would be really difficult for you discussing with professionals. However, Concerning energy consuming it is not Samsung`s but electronic industry achievement that led to reducing in power consumption specifically in the code efficiency and semiconductor areas. Meanwhile, Samsung achievement can be summarized as using cheaper battery and selling their internal memories.

AnonD-336560, 03 Apr 2015It is more ridiculously priced! Now remove my comment since I told the truthWell this device is not cheap. But since the use stronger aluminium 6013, best display, camera, memory and processor. The price is justified, I think many will agree with me based on both white and black S6 and S6 edge 128 gb are sold out in my country and 32 , 64 are low on stock. You can check this via visting telstra online store.

You mentioned... moreThe memory used is actually ufs 2.0, not usb 2.0. Moving on that is very lengthy post, which makes no sense. With regards to battery life, I understand you can have your doubts. But might want to check phone arena did a battery life test. S6 has the same battery life as S5 and S6 edge battery life is same as note 4. I'm sure you can do google search for phone arena galaxy s6 edge battery life test.
Would you elaborate on loyalty, in my humble opinion S4 was much better device than S5. However S6 I cannot find any faults in it.

You mentioned some reseaons justifying the Samsung battery issue. To my mind however it didn't back up with supporting evidences. Energy consumption and storage is one of the most important areas that has been conducted by almost all prestigious universities' faculty professors and students. This fact covers a wide applications but in Mobile phones it could be a key factor. It is due to the fact that the concept of Energy for mobile phone (as you could infere from the word of "mobile") can be regarded as vital liquid (water) for human since mobile phones don't connect to the infinite source of energy (as human relationship to the water). A prefect Example of this claim is the remarkable attempts of researchers to reduce the energy consumption via electronic circuit as well as algorithm code architecture optimization.
Going on to the next point, regarding to USB 2.0, I think I would say that this technology is not a replacement for SD cards but is an aid for people who are not satisfied with their phones internal+external storage.
Acelyn, 02 Apr 2015wow this is definitely overpricedIt is more ridiculously priced! Now remove my comment since I told the truth

What about the convenience it provided for the some customers? The reason most people chose android over ios and samsung over other brands was because of freedom, freedom to use sd card to expand memory as one likes, freedom to switch battery as one likes.
Whatever ideas brought about a smaller non removable battery were witless given that the device now requires more energy to run a 2K screen with more ppi than the human eyes can see (300ppi being the limit), and an octa core processor and the phone's no longer waterproof.
So does a phone necessarily need 2k screen, does it need octa core to run smoothly (my quad core s5 mini runs very smooth to me)? No not really but they refuse to add something as simple as radio. Why is samsung trapping its customers like apple?
Design upgraded is the only good thing they did this year but not the earphone jack at the bottom after years of having it on top. There aren't many good removable battery phones now if I upgrade it'll more than likely be to the z3 compact.
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2015no memory expansion and no removable battery equals no me.
why do these cellphone makers have... moreVery good question. When manufacturers want to design phone they need to take into account many aspects. Also imagine if they only focus on battery and disregard other areas. It will have great battery life but at what cost.
For instance if the phone is very thick with a very large battery, would you be able to hold it comfortably! Or if your phone has to have larger footprint only because of battery, would it be comfortable.
Bigger battery size is not everything, little bit of optimization and more efficient hardware goes a long way. You can check the s6 and S6 edge battery life review from phone arena to see for yourself. With regards to memory it's because of ufs 2.0 that microsd slot is gone.
no memory expansion and no removable battery equals no me.
why do these cellphone makers have such weak batteries?
I have the galaxy s5 and I bought an extended battery (twice as powerful as the original factory battery) and it's the same size as the original.
so basically I now have a phone that lasts twice as long and is the same size and weight.
FYI - they have a battery 3X as powerful also, but it makes the phone thicker.

Manex, 02 Apr 2015Too much expencive that S6 most of people can't afford itI think you find people can afford it. It is already almost sold out here in aus.

But then because it exposes design flaw in iPhone 6 and bending issue, then it must be false. That's very good joke.
Also apple never addressed the issue; they simply pretended that there are no issues, when clearly there is.

You might want to look again, there are 100% legit sources posted that prove iPhone 6 plus does have bending issue. So you simply cannot deny that it doesn't, yet you insist on them being false and pushing your own agenda and false information.
Actually the grip on S6 is very good, so you wont end up dropping it, even if you do it's the same as other with other galaxies. As I mentioned please do some research before posting.
