Anonymous, 09 Mar 2015This has got to be the most informative thing on this page, everybody else is talking about ip... moreMost informative? Nah. It's too subjective and opinionated. Most logical people will pretty much discount the post after reading the short list of 3 pro's that somehow didn't include screen, camera, storage, and ram...all of them class-leading.
Further discounting of the post is guaranteed when he talks about the front camera only taking 1080p even though it is capable of more and how the 1440p screen (which he calls 2k even though it's 2.5k, or QHD, or 1440p, but not 2k) will use more data for poor customers with data quotas.
And really, the cons for some poeple are pros for others, so it's just all opinion anyway when you claim something is a definite con even though it is seen as a pro for many.
Samsung already has a pre-order record for S6 & S6 Edge, 20 Million Units :D

It has way too many deal breakers in my opinion no real reason to "upgrade" from my s5. Samsung should listen to it customers not the critics the only thing we needed was an upgrade from plastic but they changed too many things. Hopefully they'll be a S7
Peda, 09 Mar 2015Why do you compare iPhone with galaxy s6? They are not in the same galaxy, wait till the iPhon... moreTHEY compared the iPhone6 to the S6 because the two devices are obvious direct competitors. Why wouldn't you compare the two?
Why don't you give some good examples of expected specs on the iPhone 6S and how they are inferior to other devices that don't exist yet? Look into your crystal ball and enlighten us all.
Childish spec comparison means nothing. You know nothing, Jon Snow.
Sony Clique, 09 Mar 2015Nice! Could you bring some credible sources validating your claim about the Sony Xperia camera... moreI don't have a distinct credible source for the Sony camera thing. More like I've seen the camera shoot-outs where the Z3 gets trounced by Galaxy S5, Note 4, iPhone 6, etc. Basically, when it's set to AUTO, the Z3 pics are crap. Lots of Sony users claim they can produce better photos with manual mode, which leads to people being like "You gotta be an amateur photographer to get the best pics from the Xperia's".
Sony Clique, 09 Mar 2015Could you give me your supporting evidences and reasons please. You called my comments immatur... moreI never allow my emotions to take hold in any discussion and I have been sensible. You started by saying Samsung will not be able continue, due to loss of profit.
However when others comment in response to your post with valid reasons as why you might be wrong, you still insist Samsung is finished. All the while advertising for your favourite company. I never judged your for your name, anyone who disagrees with your with sources to support must be Samsung fanboy/girl
Moving on you stated that a phone made of plastic are toys for immature kids. Which is very mature of you. This is not the only example you resorting to name calling and bashing Samsung. The fact is you insult people, then wonder why your comment gets deleted.
I want people to answer and comments on this.
From the frontal view , all these samsung phones look the same !!! so why do people go so crazy about these phones saying ooohh this one is more beautiful etc. There's no real big difference in design since the launch of the 1st gen. galaxys. and i'm talkin about the front face of the phone, not edges, sides or back cover. your comments please.....
[deleted post]This doesn't help and have been the problem from the start now you have to pay $100 to have it removed by "professionals" or you'll lose your warranty just stop trying.
Sony Clique, 09 Mar 2015Nice! Could you bring some credible sources validating your claim about the Sony Xperia camera... morelol
You don't have internet do you? Or maybe you don't know how to read at reviews, search for them etc...
In every review, each time Sony phones get lower ratings despite they are providing inferior camera modules to other manufacturers. Hello!
aod, 09 Mar 2015I can assure you I'm not fan of any particular company. However comments you have written are... moreCould you give me your supporting evidences and reasons please. You called my comments immature but you also drew a hasty conclusion without any logical grounds. Don't judge me for my name! I am not that guy that you think so don't interfere your emotions in our discussion and be sensible
JohnHolmes, 09 Mar 2015Oh look, a spec battle! But really, yes the iPhone specs are lacking on paper in some areas... moreWhy do you compare iPhone with galaxy s6? They are not in the same galaxy, wait till the iPhone 6s comes out, ooou it will have 1,250 GB ram, that is 25% more ram. Then you can compare it with any phone that is made in 2012, and you will see that iPhones are the best.
Anonymous, 09 Mar 2015The bad not Waterproof and no Sd Card exapsion i have Galaxy S5 and i dont know if i want to u... moreSorry for re-post ,
Am glad to know you support Samsung, but here's where I disagree with your comment, am in no hell No way an apple fanboy. the only apple I have in my house is in the Refrigerator , but here's the thing Apple ccan give their fans a little upgrade on hardware, Remember the first iphone in 2007 this phone had No flash for its camera. No SD card slot, No removable battery, little upgrade on software , like Bluetooth, easy access to Notification.ios 8 very Similar to Web OS , but these fans will wait in lines you seen it in the past , waiting in lines 3 , 4 days for iphone 16gb model with no SD card slot and no Removable battery, and they happy for life , Samsung has like a zillion phones and 78% of their smartphone have SD card slot and Removable battery, and Now just because Samsung got tied of the plastic jokes and made two beautiful phones , And now you can't support them by upgrading Wow! Am a real Android freak and Samsung fanboy , I will miss SD card slot, but hell yeah am upgrading to the Galaxy 6 edge, I love this phone so much , can't wait
JohnHolmes, 09 Mar 2015Oh look, a spec battle! But really, yes the iPhone specs are lacking on paper in some areas... moreNice! Could you bring some credible sources validating your claim about the Sony Xperia camera failure as all of us know that Sony is so unparalleled in term of camera (and also other aspects!) that even other flagships such as S6 uses their camera sensors
Comparing joke, 09 Mar 2015Iphones and their cavemen specs its iphone 6 and 6 plus came out in 2014 and the difference be... moreOh look, a spec battle!
But really, yes the iPhone specs are lacking on paper in some areas but they make up for it with their execution and overall package. That 1GB of RAM works pretty well still on iOS 8. That dual-core A8 CPU does well since more cores and higher max frequency doesn't always equate to better performance, like how the A8 trounces the SnapDragon 801 in many areas with half the cores and half the RAM and a lot lower max frequency (SnapDragon chips throttle quickly, so their 2.XGHz ratings are mostly just for advertising). The iPhone cameras do lack in detail, though, due to their lower resolution sensors. We need 16MP+ in our phones since like 2013. What happens when Grandma wants to crop her 8mp photo down to like 3mp, then she's looking at it in 10 years on her 8K TV and is like "why is my picture so small? And if I make it bigger, it looks grainy as heck. I thought the iPhone was a good camera!".
Meanwhile, many other phones have great specs but poor execution (TouchWiz homescreen lag still on GS6, Xperia's camera software failing to get good pics with best lens, Droid Turbo camera software as well, SnapDragon 810 overheating if that's true, Samsung's octa-core getting out-performed by dual-core Apple SoC's and SnapDragon 800 quad-core, Droid + Verizon loading up the phones with bloatware and locked bootloaders, etc.).
While I am not a fan of Apple as a company, you have to respect their execution. It really makes pretty much every other company appear sloppy and 2nd-rate. They have a tough image to keep up, that's for sure.
Pros: Nice clean metal body, bluetooth 4.1
and speaker at the bottom of the
phone (Yep that's it)
Cons: No memory card slot, and the 64gb or
the 128gb are more likely to cost a
fortune, no more waterproof feature,
the battery is now non removable and
smaller, headphone jack is at the
bottom of the phone, no radio still
and downgraded the usb 3.0 to 2.0.
Uneccessaries: 5mp front camera which is only
able to record in 1080p 30fps
just like the previous 2.1mp
camera in the s5 and the 2K
screen for which there is
hardly any media, and it'll
help drain the smaller battery
and cost a fortune to those
with a data quota (10gb per
Needs Improvement: More led flash needed to
make lighting even when
taking pictures in the
Alright I understand every phone will have their supporters and there’s nothing weird. Btw, it sounds like Samsung is bringing another experience with the design itself and I would like to know more details about the samsung phone ,mind to share more on it?
