A 32 & 64Gb sized S6 would be absolutely useless to me, a 128Gb would be viable for no more than 3-4 months, I have so much data, music & video on board.
That's data that can't be erased, music is 20Gb and growing & video is used for work purposes amongst other things.

guys, just for your info, while I don't care about none removable battery, I enquire from Samsung and they charge you a rip off figure of £200 to change your GS6 battery if one day dies.. remember battery is NOT part of your 2 years guarantee.
how about water proofing though?
they deliberately make this NOT water proof, to rip you off more, which the phone sees a splashes of water it is just good for the bin, and I hope you never replace it with another Samsung.
Samsung failed, I truly don't care how much technology they packed in there, if they don't care to protect it with water proofing features, then that tells me something sucks so badly here.
so no matter how you want to argue this, but lack of water proofing is a serious issue here.
technology moved on, and many phones are no offering water proofing feature as standard now, and Samsung gone a step back wards by removing the water proofing, so they offered it in GS5 but not GS6!!?
I know the reason, but I hope you have a serious thought about it before buying this piece of useless gimmick, if it sees the water it would be useless.

resisted to buy any of the latest model , they truly not offer much for the money.
S2 still amazing phone, still relevant, still performing, and so nice to carry
shame the mother board died on my, so make sure you back up everything, I lost loads of nice pictures

to me it is just so stupid to make the unibody phone, with no removable battery but STILL UNABLE to offer a water proofing!! that truly sucks. splashes if water and then your £800 phone is good for the bin! yes that is how sensitive they make it to empty your pocket after you water damaged it.
also glass all over the phone might look nice, but certainly NOT PRACTICAL
on a simple drop the both side of the phone is exposed to be shatter to pieces, secondly with the glass on both side, means finger prints will be all over your slick phone like a shit! I don't want that.
the rest of the gimmicks will be absolute standard in couple of months on all the new smart phones, so Samsung achieved nothing special here,
don't fall for this and don't throw your money after this fragile phone, you will truly regret it,
I can't stand apple, HTC, but really so eager to see what Sony will offer, and I think they are the one who will be the big winner this year.
buying this phone is like throwing your money into a bin
have some respect for yourself and just wait more exciting phone are soon coming to the market

Also it's known that microsd card is slower than ufs 2.0 used in S6 and S6 edge. So why would someone hinder the performance of device by putting in sd card slot. Please if you don't know simply do some research and then comment.

This is pure greed. Non removable battery? Now if your battery gives up you need to go to a technition to replace it. no memory card slot forces you to buy the phone with bigger memory, because you wont be able to expand the memory afterwards. next move will be in store android updates and chargers that only works on samsungs(again)... capitalism

so they studied and found that not many people uses SD cards however , more and more applications are developed to be stored in SD cards ?!!!!!
some people in Samsung needs a quick termination if so !!
Very disappointed from Samsung. They turned their galaxy to iphone.
What make us like android more?
For those saying "128gb is TOO BIG to store anything"
You can't judge your memory usage with others.
What happen if your phone just bricked suddenly? Samsung will fix it. You lose all your data and screwed no way to restore them. Happened to my mom S4. But if you have SD no worries, plus when buy new phone you can move all your data easily.
For battery people might want to swap batteries insted of buying charger pack and wait for xx min to charge.
But it's all to user prefernce. It is certain no for me. We can call this phone "android iphone".
I guess that was Samsung goal to pull Apple user to their markets by relasing iphone duplicate.

Samsung did a study and found out only a small number used microsd and extra battery. With regards to fm radio, well refer to what was said earlier.
galaxy range has many advantages some include superamoled screen, more ram, better processor.
Now lets get to S6, the new ufs 2.0 is superior to others in terms of read and write speed, exynos 7420 is unmatched, qhd super amoled screen is the best in market. Lets not forget fast charging and wireless charging built in. So removal of sd card, battery doesn't matter.
Now to Ip67 rating. Unless you live underwater, it won't make a difference. Also with regards to lowlight performance a review was done and S5 out performed S3.
Samsung put thought into S6, unlike apple. Finally yes what you're doing is trolling.
l'm disappointed. I've still got the S2 after waiting through all following models hoping for at least the same features but with added performance. Sure the S6 has killer performance but no redundancy like my S2 which has a removable battery, microSD and FM radio. People go on about OTG memory and cloud storage but that was no good to me when I was traveling in south America and Africa and my charging port died. let's see what you do in the practical world when the same happens on your S6 and your not in your comfy western neighborhood.
The mighty S2 lives on while more come and go...
aod, 18 Mar 2015Now we know for sure you don't have the S5. But please continue trolling.I dont need to prove somethings to anybody. I bought all S series except S4. yes agree S5 takes beautiful photos in day light.. I tested them at the same time. S3 have night mode .. S5 have picture stabilisation for night shot. and S5 really bad about night shot. Im sure S6 will have a wonderful camera and I never criticized about this.
What was our advantage against to iphone as galaxy users?
removable battery , micro sd slot , fm radio , waterproofing(S5 only) ... and now? same with iphone.
so Im angry .. and I never trolling

Other than that you'll have to buy a battery bank which cost more than a replaceable battery too. Also if their phones are selling for £700 just maybe the back shouldn't break easily.
