ooops- in my opinion big mistake. An SD card slot and removable/replaceable battery were the two main features of awesomeness that distinguished the Galaxy S series from the iPhone. Luckily I am not a Galaxy S series user. My heart is with the note series and I currently own a note 3. Here's hoping they don't make the same mistake with the Note 5!!! (however, if they actually release the 128GB version here in the US that would mitigate things....a little)
I remember back a few years ago, i was wishing for a 3.5mm jack at the bottom of my Galaxy S phones, to be able to see tons of audio accessories just like for Apple products : docks and various HIFI/Stereo systems.
For speakers, there are only 3 possibilities (while waiting for the invisible ones) : back, sides and front.. So smart people will think about pros and cons about each ones with the materials used.
People don't see the usability behind each design decision but prefer staying blind and pick the easiest for their mind "copycat" (just like kids).

Apple is the perfect example : despite being criticized in blogs, they are the top dog to match in every comparison/reviews each time.

The rest has been discussed before and it doesn't mean it's a copy. By your logic the scree size of iphone 6, nfc chip and mobile payments means iphone 6 is a copy. Speaker grill is not unique and putting it down the bottom doesn't mean apple invented it. Not really with all due respect it is nothing like iPhone 6.

The headphone jack is now located at the bottom along with the perforated speaker holes. the rounded edge and the non-removable battery along with the non-extendable storage. device storage at 32, 64, and 128GB. Youd have to be really ridiculous not to see it

You do have one valid point however samsung did excellent job, S6 has excellent design that is unique. That competition comment made me laugh, are you for real!

T... moreWith regards to iPhone 6's design I would direct your attention to Samsung Ativ S from 2012, it is clear were apple copied the design of iPhone 6 from. Moving on the back of iPhone 6 also takes design queues from HTC M8.
Now to S6 it's using aluminium 6013 which is much more stronger than aluminium in other devices. As mentioned earlier S6 design is actually a evolution of Samsung Ativ S and noting like apple iPhone 6.
[deleted post]Just few things to help, with ufs 2.0 memory being very advanced including microsd would hinder not only performance of on board memory but also the performance of exynos 7420.
The 2550 battery does provide the same battery life as S5 and S6 edge with 2600 mah battery has battery life of note 4. furthermore it takes only 78 and 83 minutes to charges S6 and S6 edge to 100%. I'm sure you can find the article by phone arena.

What are you talking about. The only resemblance of Iphone 6 is iPod touch, it also may have copied the Htc phones with respect to the antenna lines behind it. iPhone 6 in overall design does not look like any phone before it except the iPod touch. Unlike the new S6 which looks so much like the iPhone 6 that you have to conclude that Samsung was clearly targeting the iPhone users. Even with the removal of the sd card and also non removable battery it made it look more and more like the i6. The phone is just an iPhone with a Samsung logo on it and a monster spec inside it. I guess it is really tempting for me an apple user all my life, I'll have to agree that Samsung made a really beautiful phone and a powerful one too. This is the first real completion that apple will have in a long time. I guess apple will have to step up now with the 6s.
[deleted post]I am not questioning your intelligence but this is not the right place to ask this question. You should try at some iOS/iPhone/iPad thread. If you are trolling then you should be ashamed of yourself because you are terrible at trolling.

If everyone chooses to remember, when the iphone 6 came out, EVERYONE was shocked by how much it resembled the Galaxy S5. It's amazing that someone would believe that the Galaxy S6 resembles the Iphone 6. We live in a world of lemmings. I'm sure there is a cliff somewhere.
I think Samsung should allow their designer's or engineers to use smartphones of other brands so that they can fall out of their standard design.It looks like they have updated the previous flagship doesn't seems as a new design.
What! No removable battery or SD card! That sucks.This is looking more like the icrap If your battery has only 15 % left in it from just doing this presentation then I will pass and wait for the S7 or ?
Hopefully by then Samsung will go back to the replaceable battery and SD card feature and should have " night vision" with the infrared emitter.Like my Sony camcorder does from the 90's! That's 30 year old technology that worked very good back then.
That's what I'm talking about! And to make it even better, where's the external mic accessory ? To record audio without holding the phone out like a nerd!
If you really do all the research and look into both apple and galaxy they both are great phones, however, apple tends to copy everything that samsung does. Apple's last biggest update updated their phone to do everything that my current galaxy s3 has been doing since i got the phone almost 3 years ago now. Along with the fact that the iphone 6 looks just lke the galaxy s2 and we sumsung comes out with a watch and now apple is doing it to. They are both fine phones but it is evident to which one is better, but there are obviously samsung people and apple people
