samsung has taken so many steps backward that I will not be getting the S6. How do you not include a card slot and seal the battery in the phone? all backwards thinking if you ask me.
Samsung has improved more on look and body . the competition is from Apple so new phone is made to beat iPhone . you can't remove the battery and expanding of SD card is not available in S6 . Which many of user is using the samsung for both .
So if you compare with iPhone 6 vs S6 with reduced feature of S6 both are same and by feature i suggest iPhone 6
Does anyone have the actual audio specs yet? (S/N ratio, separation)
The headphone jack placement is bad or good depending on how you use your phone. If you use it in an armband holder or belt clip, or keep it upright in your pocket, then top is often better. If you keep it top down in your pocket or use an aux cable in your car, then then the bottom location is a little better. It all depends on the user habits ;)
What did samsung do?, 08 Mar 2015Speaker at the bottom ok could work with that, but headphone jack at the bottom, in what unive... moreA lot of people, me included, put their phone upside-down in their pockets because that way, when you grab it, it sits upright in your hand. In fact, it's the most natural way to put your phone in your pocket. With the jack on the underneath, you can listen to music without having to put your phone in your pocket in a dodgy way.
Speaker at the bottom ok could work with that, but headphone jack at the bottom, in what universe does that make sense.
Well after the 4.4 kitkat disaster there weren't any choices other than getting high internal memory phones but now non removable batteries and they took away the waterproof feature. Also notice they have a slower cpu, but raised the price to create a 4K phone when a person can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on a 5 inch screen. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is more like the iphones limiting users to their benefit. Will stick to S5
It is quite the disadvantage that you cannot change the battery in case the battery stops working
Non removable battery how to restart if button failed. No external memory card is also a disadvantage meaning can only used 32 GB internal memory. No radio function and have been waiting waiting n waiting for samsung to put this function in for galaxy s and note series. No much difference btw S5 and S6 in terms of functions.
AnonD-358734, 08 Mar 2015Recently I had a weird experience with my galaxy note 4. I have been using my note 4 since it ... morePhones with non removable battery have more safe-failover buttons combinations so that you don't have to wait for battery total draining in case there's no reset hole.
S6 is not the 1st phone like that and not the last one either.
I have Samsung Galaxy S5, i will stick with it, there is no wow factor in S6, n S6 also not better than S5,will wait for S7 0r S8 to arrive
Recently I had a weird experience with my galaxy note 4. I have been using my note 4 since it released. No problems, no lags, no hanging....everything is running perfect up to date, touchwood!!....
Now 2-3 days back I update youtube app and there was a bug in that app which make the phone totally freezed up....I get it know later when I faced it. While watching videos my phone suddenly freezed up. I tried everything to restart my phone, I have long pressed the power button also but nothing was working. The only thing which resolved this situation was removing the battery. Then I suddenly uninstalled that youtube updates.
Now, if this thing happened with S6 what will be done to solve it??....Definitely we have to wait for battery to get empty and phone turns off automatically.
Think upon it!!
Some people are thinking like they need their whole data/collection in same time just right now. Or to backup all at once in same time everyday...
That's really smart while proning external storage.
mojooey, 08 Mar 2015have you heard about google cloud..... same thing like iCloud . you should keep ur files there. Uploading and downloading 32Gb of data in my phone to the "cloud" ? So slow, expensive and if i don't have access to internet...a memory card is so simple and cheap...
From my point of view the best solution is to make regular backups of the files in the phone on a memory stick using Usb-otg. Which must be done anyway because SD cards can fail too.
Iphone or Byephone .......Samsung or damnGum ......Who cares ?
These two companies are making fool ....
Introducting New features
Water proof or not
Removeable SD card/battery or not
Glass or metal or Plastic
Market resale value
region to region differentiation
all these things are like a Maze ......never ending maze where Fools walks / runs / and try to find a perfect exit but Alassssssssssss These Two so called Mobile Comapnies are not willing to give a safe / perfect exit way.....:P:D
Human's desires never have an End .......so try to argue upon features and all mobile related shits , and keep wasting Your Money just for the sake of few Good days .........:P
