Samsung has been consecutively focused on display rather then the overall performance of the handset. i think this is where they should stop focusing on display and start making some good phone
JohnHolmes, 12 Mar 2015Yeah I can't wait to see the reaction by all the people freaking out over a smaller battery wh... morer you trying to convince yourself?? how do you know what people want? apple sold 700 mil iphone last quarter; which android phone hit that mark in such a short time?? stay with the fact don't just make things up out of no-ware, no one is getting any benefit from this. instead you are humiliating your self.
aod, 10 Mar 2015Once again you are comparing phones that are released two years apart. Multi window is not gim... moreit is true that if you doesn't live under water the waterproof function doesn't bother much
Samsung took a great step to remove the SD card slot for faster experience (No card virus & dump stuff)+ Non removable battery.Body is Elegant (relief from plastic stuff) With greater camera options.
adpk, 11 Mar 2015Hahaha m86k and u there r 2 left Because 2 + 2 = 5? Your math is as good as your spelling is as good as your reasoning and logic with smart-phones.

Oh but that 2.5k/QuadHD/1440p screen is so power hungry! Except for the fact that is uses 20% less power than the S5 screen, lol.
The S6 battery is a non-issue for most, especially with good, cheap power blocks.
The S6 lack of microSD is a small issue for most. I believe the sexiness of the S6 will outweigh the lack of microSD. Data-hoarders should get the 64GB or 128GB model and if they really need more room just use a wifi-drive or OTG adapter with any USB storage attached to it...or the cloud when on wifi.
Yeah, I get it, people get the Galaxy instead of the iPhone for features like the removable battery and microSD slot. That was a big differentiator. However, most people realize they need neither. The big differentiator is the OS. I believe that anyone that can afford an S6 or iPhone6 has already decided on which OS they want on their phone, and the lack of a couple marginal features won't deter them from the much bigger decision of which OS to use.
Decent price and the 128gb version of the S6, not Edge, is getting owned!
Trow, 11 Mar 2015how many people do you see at work, at a game, in a restaurant, at school, on train, in their ... moreI'm traveling the world and have a backup of mutt apps on another sd card. I also had a problem with usb transfers and slow or non existent internet in many places in central and south America as well as Africa so moving files to the microsd card has been invaluable. People who live in western countries with cheap fast internet don't seem to realise this.
The performance looks impressive but I require a removable MicroSD card and removable battery. A radio would also be nice. Why you ask when there is the cloud and external batteries and radios? Becaus.
I'm lot living in a country with cheap fast internet like most people who make such comments..I've been traveling the world for three years (I'm a private investor) and like performance without extra gear. I'm still using my Galaxy S2. it won't have the performance of its sucessors but has great flexibility. I've changed the battery a couple of times and also when android has crashed how are you going to do that on the new phone? my photos and videos I move directly onto usb but when the port died I simply swapped microsd cards and moved them onto there for backup as internet cost and speed in many countries is prohibitive for such a move of large amounts of data. can't do that either on the new phones.
so I keep waiting. A S6 with removable battery and microsd would give me cause to upgrade.
JohnHolmes, 11 Mar 2015I figured it was going to be dubbed the best display since the Note 4 was the previous king, b... moreBesides with the 14nm Processor, newer Exynos chipset, DDR4 RAM & UFS 2.0 the battery efficiency is going to be top notch.
More from DisplayMate that I find interesting:
The Galaxy S6 is in fact 23 percent more power efficient than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for mixed image content (that includes
text together with photos, videos, and movies, for example) with a typical 50 percent Average Picture Level, APL. OLEDs have been
rapidly improving in their power efficiency. The balance point has now moved all the way up to 65 percent APL: the OLED Galaxy S6
is more power efficient for all APLs from zero up through 65 percent, and the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus LCDs are more power
efficient for APLs above 65 percent.
Sigle phone means that this phone has all the features in the mentioned ones. So where is the sd slot or the batterry removable option
I figured it was going to be dubbed the best display since the Note 4 was the previous king, but this surprised me a little (from DisplayMate's test):
Comparison with the Galaxy S5:
The Galaxy S6 is 20 percent more power efficient than the Galaxy S5 (for the same Luminance and same screen area).
That should bode well for the smaller battery in the S6.
