Yes,you are right Nikolain,but 90% ot the users are using cases and most of the time they only see the display only,because everything else is covered in order to protect the phone.Now if look from that point of view then you will understand why people are asking for the SD slot and the removable battery.I personally also preffer to have a removable battery.Very useful to have 1 spare battery in pocket when you do outdoor activities rather than using cheap and dangerous aftermarket crap power banks...
In YouTube videos,
S6' front&back glass panel make "much reflection"
Laggy touch wiz is goes on in some videos ,comparing HTC m9
With own Exynos, Over Octa cores, HEATING ISSUES are challenge to s6& s6 Edge
Samsung drop water proof quality, which is essential our daily use and sudden accident
Soft_based 2k display is keeping oversaturated yellowish&greenish colour
With reducing battery capacity, This 2k display sucks battery life (wireless charging is not an answer to save battery)
Of course, Wireless charging is too slow compare to normal charging system
Ultra Power Saving mood is absolutely not a solution, It can't be denied that 577ppi and 5.1 2k screen suck quickly& happily the 1550 mah battery
With Ultra High Price Tag, s6 and s6 Edge make our head turn to HTC m9 & iPhone 6 and 6 plus
The lack of memory expansion (pre-installed memory pricing)is a undesirable marketing tactics used by apple. The non-replaceable battery requires servicing for battery issues vs replace with a spare and use immediately (not desirable). Also, they better back warranty for battery issues and provide quick service (same day walk-in) and hope there aren't issues.
samsung you suck.....i hope you ,,executive's are looking at these comments....no micro slot....i always moved my stuff to my phone when upgrading by mirco slot....not no more....samsamg sucks any more...now your going to loose all you worked for.....!!!!!

Anonymous, 05 Mar 2015Lack of a memory card slot may make this long awaited buy a no go for me.Ditto my friend. 2 of the main reasons I stayed with the galaxy line were the Micro SD slot and removable battery. Can't justify not getting iPhones for the whole family now. It's to bad.
Yes some people are complaining small things instead of having best other important things.
no memory expansion and non-removable battery?!!?!?
So with the built-in memory, you can videotape all of 30 mins, lol.
As for the battery, I personally prefer to buy expanded battery which can last up to 2-3 times as long.
Depending on the size of the battery, you can get one with 2x the power for the same size.
I guess i'll stick with my Galaxy S5 for now.
Hey old lcd user specially iphone user , try the super AMOLED display how beautiful, vivid, vibrant and sharp contrast than lcd display. In front of Samsung iphone seems soo dull and faded screen.
m86k, 06 Mar 2015We see too many of this kind while browsing comments everyday :)Sometimes i can't stand it when people bash a product without even knowing it, Samsung introduced DDR4 RAM, UFS 2.0, 16 MP f1.9 camera sensor, fast charging & wireless charging, Samsung Pay, etc. and made a beautiful phone in a very long time but no one cares about it, all they care about is Removable battery and SD Cards.
Nikolain, 06 Mar 2015Sorry i had to be, i meant how can someone be so ignorant :) We see too many of this kind while browsing comments everyday :)

You are evil :)Sorry i had to be, i meant how can someone be so ignorant :)

The only doubt i have on this, is the buttons.
I had bought one for my S5 and i stopped using it because buttons where too "hard" to press at the point that i was afraid of damaging my phone if i was slipping while forcing my way on them.

I looked for one of those in the past and couldn't find one so I think I've forgotten about them. I am a big fan of glass screen protectors after trying several types of plastic-based ones. I'm sure there will be some cool cases and stuff. I'm probably going for an Edge as well. If it's too slippery, I'll probably go for a transparent case, something like: http://www.amazon.com/Verus-Protection-Samsung-Crystal-Transparent/dp/B00U0PX66K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1425604962&sr=8-1
Yay for new gadgets!

I would expect to lose 1% or less battery life per hour if I disabled mobile data & wifi on any flagship Android. With wifi on it should lose less than 2% per hour. Bob could have a faulty battery, but it's likely a software issue. Bob could factory reset it if he can't figure out what is eating his battery. Then if the issue persisted, he could get an official Samsung S5 battery for $24. Bob could do lots of things but he has a 6+ so his S5 gets no love.

You'll get both back+front film protectors. Really high quality, keeping a smooth touch feeling and very durable against daily wearing.
I'm aiming at a back cover as transparent/slim as possible like official ones from Samsung because i'll buy S6 Edge.
