Alien, 27 Mar 2015I'm not a sammy boy by all means, but this new model looks rather sexy. Specially the S6 Edge ... moreActually, it is in a sense waterproof, it's IP 67 certified, which means if you were to say, drop it in a bucket/pot of water the only thing to worry about is at least grabbing it quickly. But you could buy a charging protector and just use wireless pads so you don't have to worry about water in the screen. And as a note, microSD cards would slow it down and aren't enabled to download android applications making it a minimalistic feature and a laggy one.

But frankly, Samsung's gold color on Alpha and S6 is the nicest gold among all brands i have seen.
BTW, i'll order one of those Zaggs invisibleshield films pack to snap both on front and back of the phone : problem solved for fingerprints rant when it's not in its back cover.

Still can't decide between gold or green edge, so I might have to check them both at experience store.
1701, 28 Mar 2015Wonder what the sceptics about S6 and S6 edge's battery life going to say now.They are trying hard this year :)
But i don't even pay attention to them anymore, since my preorder (just 25h ago), i can see now at official online french retailers that initial 64gb stocks are almost gone from both versions. A few online shops still list black and/or white now for end of april/early may delivery.. Just WOW, that was fast. Even samsung shop now says delivery end of April for new orders.
m86k, 28 Mar 2015While preordering my unit, i noticed that warranty from Samsung will last 2 years for information. Wonder what the sceptics about S6 and S6 edge's battery life going to say now.

Lets not mention Aluminium 6013 used in S6 which is used in aircraft fuselage And gorilla glass 4 which is very tough. Other brands use cheap aluminium in their devices.
I'm fan of Samsung, actually I have the galaxy S4, but now when I read the especification of the new S6 I don't think I will buy it,
No SD memory slot, not remobable battery and no water proof, what is happen Samsung? This is not new tecnology, I'm sorry but I will look for someting better this time.

Battery has fast charging 78 minutes and has better life than iPhone 6 and 6 plus. Further more S6 has active version.
It actually won't cost much to swap screen and battery, but it's high quality and nothing will happen. The design is clearly Samsung, iPhone 6 on the other hand is copy of Samsung ativ s.
So there you are presented with some facts, but I doubt you will even read them.

Most flagship devices have non removable battery, also UFS 2.0 memory in S6 is most advanced and fastest in the market including card slot would hinder performance.

omg. non-removable battery? why? wth? no sd card? c'mon! I was freaking out over this s6 but now its just like wtf! It's rather sexy tho!

I jailbreaked it but got bored with it and give it to another friend. I am an android user since 2010.
Sony Xperia Z, HTC Desire, Nokia N70. Chronological order.
I am 110% with android, but what i meant is that those features are very important to me and a for a lot of other people. Sammy is copying apple by limiting the device which
HHMMM!!!... I'd rather buy Galaxy s5 than having this kind of phone. Lol. NO SD CARD Non-removable battery? Hell no.
No expandable memory? No water proof? No replaceable battery? Au revoir, Samsung. I bought the S, the S2, the S3, the S4 and the S5 (which already had serious sound issues)...but not buying the S6...I will wait to see what the LG G4 will offer.
Stores already have demo units, i tested one today, the experience was ruined by the cold white temperature, making a truly awful display. Very disappointing. The build was not as expected also, despite all the changes they managed to retain the cheap feel, and from the front it looks as bad S5 also. Try it before preordering, it has no premium feel or premium look.
