Dumb idea to copy Apple's downfalls. No expandable memory & non-replaceable battery. Two reason I picked the Samsung S5 over the IPhone! I won't be upgrading to the new S6!

When ... moreI guess Samsung is copying ridiculous ideas such as not having expandable memory from Apple. Android users will eventually migrate to other brands now, Samsung will no longer be the preferred.
Saw this phone today at store very much disappointed. I thought it is samsung galaxy e5. When i came very close and picked it found little bit difference. The person standing told that this is samsung galaxy s6. There is no memory expandable in this phone which makes this one worst for me. The best option now is samsung galaxy note 4.
not a goodinstrument samsung misladen no sd card no radio nospace second sim
I would never buy a phone that has non replaceble battery. Samsung went the wrong was.YOu will need to replaceit after a year.. it will cost up to 100 dolars instead 20-25.
i dont know everyone keep saying no removable battery and micros sd i agree the expandable storage is important for some people but removable battery i have never seen anybody using 2 batteries in my life
no waterproof is something additional but not necessary
but see the camera the best the screen is the best ever the design is nice but not the best but i am getting the s6
nice mobile we are not forget it this mobile is verry verry god job

Anonymous, 25 Mar 2015C'mon people we are in 2015 there is no need for an fm radio anymore now that there is online ... moreYoung man, i do not waste my money on data plans so I can stream music. I listen to the radio. I also load my phone and SD cards with music. Why pay for streaming/Data plans which young people foolishly buy? Streaming is great, but only via wifi! Load your music...
1701, 27 Mar 2015How exactly is Samsung copying apple, would you care to explain. Most flagship devices have no... moreI keep hearing the word "hinder". It will NOT slow down apps once loaded. What is 1/2 second wait when you can watch 30 movies on your sd card, swap out IF needed. You younger people are easily swayed with hype.
Platosminion, 28 Mar 2015Actually, it is in a sense waterproof, it's IP 67 certified, which means if you were to say, ... more"Laggy" is irrelevant as far as watching a movie goes or listening to music. There is never any lag time when using SD card for either media. It does slow the phone down, when opening files but not enough to get rid of it. If movies were jerky and music stuttered, then get rid of the SD slots. There are very fast micro sd cards out there, phones should use them.

aod, 28 Mar 2015Few things to help you out. Design of S6 is evolution of Samsung ativ s, which apple copied in... moreHTC One M9 will benefit from this "evolution" of the S phone. We now officially have 2 iPhone mfgs.
I remember some people were concerned about glass of S6/S6 Edge etc... Real concerns/trolling, well, here for your answers about "what if..." :
Pear, 29 Mar 2015I am always confused when people say that. My G3 has really decent battery life and never over... moreMe too, i wasn't believing threads of G3 stating overheating since i use it as a secondary phone.
But one day, i spent an afternoon at a friend with it, doing various things like snapping photos, recording 3 very short slow motion clips and looking for a few apps to download/update on Play store and it's there i noticed the problems.
It's simple, i had more battery on my G3 than on my S5 when i arrived, like 95% on G3 and 50% on S5, after 1hour while i was browsing playstore i saw battery was at 60%, i thought WTH? It's not a phone for heavy usage since it doesn't even hold moderate like this.
For double tap, it's cool at first but got bored after not even 1 month. I only have to hover my hand over my S5 to check for notifications unlike G3. Even multitap unlocking sometimes frustrates me if i use both hands to unlock since G3 is too big for some 1 hand operations, so i can't imagine G4 with will be slightly bigger.
Also let's not mention the lack of sensitivity of the touch panel sometimes or its bugginess when reaching the edges.. A friend of mine noticed same thing on his unit. While we text, problems may appear with keys on far right. I used different keyboard apps of course, hence the touchpanel cause.
On the contrary, Galaxy S4-5 have extremely sensitive touchscreens even without ticking the setting to enhance them more.
And I was surprised that this phone is not able to make timelapse whereas my twice cheaper ZTE Blade S6 can.
I can speak all day long about G3 cons as you can see, i really own one, but it's not the thread for that.
Much better is to do Samsung Galaxy S6 with 3K screen, 4 GB RAM and Snapdragon 820, that's have to be really monster
Pear, 29 Mar 2015I am always confused when people say that. My G3 has really decent battery life and never over... moreIt's in comparison with other devices. Please check out Phone arena they did comparison of S6, S6 edge, G3, M9 among other devices.
With regards to your other question, no one can answer it for sure. I can list pros or cons of both devices, but that might not help.
Thus it's 100% your choice; and it comes down to your personal preference. In my opinion S6 and S6 edge are great devices, so far G4 also seems like a great device.
So I think you can check out S6 and S6 edge and then make a decision.

I am still debating whether to stick with LG once the G4 comes out or go back to Samsung. For me, the fact that there are no buttons on the LG G3 and the double tap on the screen thing is the most useful and innovative thing in the last 2 years in mobile phone industry...
