Things a phone in 2015 should have to be HIGH END:
- SD Card (you brake ur phone, say good bye to ur data)
- Waterproof (do i need to explain?!)
- FHD or QHD display
- NO MORE THAN 5.0 INCHES (Get a note or a phablet if you want more!)
- 4GB RAM
- a good camera that has:
- the NEGATIVE effect - i'm a photographer
- touch to focus (no auto bs)
- I don't care about the front one, i'm not an obsessed chick about selfies & Facebook - i covered mine with black tape :D)
- 3000+ mAh battery (doesn't matter if it comes out or not)
There's a lot more, but I think these are the main ingredients from MY point of view.. Salt&Pepper as u wish :)
P.S. For those who have the idiot ideea 2-3GB of RAM is enough: Since I've bought my smartphone, I haven't touched my PC. PC's are so yesterday's thing! Adapt or die in a dusty shelf..
I am not sure that with a non exchangeable battery and no additional SD-card slot, that this Galaxy will be as popular as the Galaxy S5. It is getting closer and closer to an Apple phone!
I hope that Samsung will rethink this loosing strategy!

what a joke man. Decreased battery life, No memory expansion, Non-removable battery. Don't buy this rubbish for your hard earned money. SAMI is DONE.
sammy, 16 Mar 2015how do you know that?
are you just wishing for the battery to be better?
Sams... moreIt's just common sense Sammy :
-if you check at battery test in details, you will see that talking time is far less (10 Hours) than both a S5 (with a not that bigger battery) or a G3 (only other QHD flagship).
Talking time, is only about communications i think, it's not about using the screen/gpu like other tests.
-phone is not available commercialy, to make a 10 pages review, i don't think they made it in one day to test everything, so they should have gotten the device for let's say 1 week before publishing.
-in some videos of sammobile, you could see them postponing OTA updates. So it means even with the device not released, Samsung is still working on it. Whereas once you get your phone, you will get a minor update maybe every 2/3 months.
It's not a wish, it's an information which needs to be rechecked with retail units / commercial firmwares.

Before Apple intoruduced it to their phones, it was a redundant feature, Samsung has had NFC for many years now... Apple and Samsung copy eachother. I am not a Samsung fanboy, I think both Samsung and Apple are s***
5.1 inches is a little bit small, if 5.3 to 5.5 inches is just nice. No memory card slot,.... sorry to say,l shall never consider.

Samsung failed to include the most important feature for this phone, that is water proofing, that is so important to many, and Samsung failed to deliver that key requirement.
Samsung lost it completely, and this phone has nothing new to offer, just wait 2 months for Sony Z4 which would revolutionize the world of smart phone as we know it today.
Sony kept so quite about it, but they would deliver something amazing in coming months...
I am a Samsung fan, always had Samsung but sick and tired of lack of innovation in new devices...
how can you put so much effort and not make this phone water proof! ??????????
so basically S5 was water proof but S6 isn't ? why? are we going backwards rather than forward?
it is truly ridicules !

Cheaply or not, they incorporate leading ideas to offer alternatives to the leader or else, you would end up with 2 categories of smartphones : iphones and others. Iphones with all options, others with none.
But tell us a good reason why not incorporate those features since NFC were on Android phones first for a few years and not even used by google Android (check the poor support in apps on play store)?
Also, nobody said a thing about iphones incorporating face/smile detection in their camera for example, and i'm sure many other features but i don't care about them or to point fingers.
Time to grow up and see that to compete on a same level, each competitor has to reach a certain level of features, else there's no hesitation possible in a store.
That's the difference with Samsung selling more than all combined android competitors each year.

And it seems that suddenly after a thing is popularized by the iPhones, that Samsung wants to incorprate it and try to cheaply and brazenly scrap some of that market for itself...
Even the payment system is brazenly named Samsung Pay....
Please compare Samsung S6 / Iphone 6 / Asus Zenfone 2.
Winner is Asus Zenfone 2. Ram Memory Asus Zenfone 2 is 4GB Ram. Beat exhausted all brand phone. Now time to see spec, not brand.
A lot of people conplain about the bad battery life of the S6. Remember, it's the DEMO unit that GSMArena reviewed. We can expect the much better battery life once the final unit comes out.

Pity about the missing card slot and sealed battery as that is one of my key features in a phone, right after battery life. I guess I'll take the Note 4 next month for my upgrade.
Extreeeeeeeemly Disappointed. A loyal Samsung cell phone user, had S2, S3, S4, S5, Note-2, Note-3 and Note-4, was really looking up to this phone but seriously Disappointed. I think i'll go for Iphone 6 this time and may continue so atleast will have something to showoff.
1. New body and looks.
