On EVERY review out there its stated as one of the biggest negative points that it doesn't have SD card slot. I mean when I was thinking what phone to take, it was one of the biggest things that gave advantage to the LG G4 I also considered to buy. But I like Samsung's hardware home button and the volume keys on the side (G4 has on screen buttons and volume keys on the back) more than the fact that it doesn't have SD card slot. Before I got S6 I had S4 mini 8GB + 32GB card and that was enough for me, so "only" 32GB is ok for me. Anyway, you have USB OTG support (works like a charm) on the S6.
Just don't blame Samsung because you didn't reed the spec sheet where it clearly stands "micro SD card slot: NO".

Despite all those negative disadvantages of the Galaxy S6, the first few positive features, that I noticed and I waited years for, when I went to the tech shop, are:
Â• Ability to view more camera modes without scrolling (but the opposite actually happened to the settings)
Â• Slow motion video recording in real-time and with sound! Finally‼ (one of Samsung's biggest improvements)
Â• Camera quick launcher (Sony's physical shutter button is something the GT-i8000 had and I really miss it. The camera quick launcher of the S6 with Lollipop (TouchWiz NatureUX V5) actually worked much better than the one from Marshmallow (TouchWiz NatureUX6) (I will state more details about that later)
Â• Flashlight torch shortcut from quick toggle settings | despite that part of the user interface was messed up on NatureUX 5 and fixed with NatureUX 6, a flashlight shortcut was something iOS 7 had in it's new control center, which could be called by sliding up from the bottom of the screen. The flashlight could be altered even while the camera is running, while that was not possible on iOS. For the S6 (and S7 with Marshmallow pre-installed), the torch shortcut will be blocked while the camera is running. This makes it impossible to alter the flashlight for burst shots and DURlNG video recording. Actually, Sony's HOMANi camera user interface offers the torch setting during video recording. HTC also can do that.
Take an example from the Sony HandyCam FDR-AX33p (or AXP33), where some camera settings can be adjusted during video recording. Some settings such as resolution, framerate and bitrate can not be altered during video recording. It would be good, if it could be adjusted during video recording, but apply automatically for the next time, and the ability to discard those changes before the video recording has ended.
Since Android Marshmallow for Samsung phones (the HTC One M9 also had that for Lollipop, like Nokia 108 and Samsung Omnia i8000 too): the pause/record button could be pressed without any delay. You could press it as many times as you can press the iPhone's shutter key (only if exposure time is short enough) per second, and it would also react.
The Galaxy S7 also could preserve close to zero shutter lag. But as far as I know, to achieve that, the camera application needs to be excluded from all power saving procedures. The camera application should not be affected by power saving anyways, and only supported MultiWindow on the Note 4, where that glorious legacy mulWin tray was available, which had many advantages over the new system since S6. But since Android Marshmallow on S6, pressing the multi window icon on the recnet task switcher (fortunately no longer limited to 14/16 applications, but since Marshmellow affected by the rotation of the background app, which can actually be locked by tapping and holding the screen), does not cause that application to be added to the running application, but a completely new multi window session will be started.
Additionally, the Galaxy S7 will disable zero shutter lag, if the battery temperature thereshold (probably 25 degrees of celsius.).
AnonD-451787, 10 Jan 2017There is no such thins as fakes, as those who make the fakes cannot use the actual logo & ... moreNot true, there ARE fake Samsung devices with SAMSUNG branding. My friend bought S3 replica, from outside exacty the same as the real S3 (with SAMSUNG logo), inside MTK processor, 256MB RAM, 128MB ROM.

Guys how's the battery timing of s6? And overall is it a good phone to buy or should i wait for A3 2017?

I have had a smartfone since SE P900 and don't ever recall after having 50 smartphones having out of RAM (memory) messages except My Nokia N97 and Nokia N8 displaying "Not enough memory to perform operation".
I think your storage is full not RAM.
Very disappointed to now find out after the purchase of the Samsung 6 that we cannot have an SD card or add memory. I have started to accumulate things I want to keep and now my phone is giving me all these stupid messages and telling me my ram is full etc. this should have been told by Samsung and optus who supplied the phone that this option was not available. I have had Samsung's for years and love them up until now. I have even converted people from Iphone to Samsung as they are so user friendly. I feel cheated this time.
