Samsung is trying to emulate iphone. everybody know this. Im talking about features , not about design
Michael Parker, 05 Mar 2015Apple is almost like a religion and there is studies to show that, And the reason most iPhone ... moreI do understand but i'm more open minded as all my posts suggest it.
I know many people who use Apple not because it's a religion, but because it's more "hassle-free" and more consistant than most android devices.
Don't tell me that the one time you wanted to demo something on your phone, it had to slow down or lag just that one time instead of opening fastly as usual ?
Also story : I had a "smart" friend, really bright, who was used to "dumb phones" and who had an ipad.
He decided to buy some Kazam phone (western brand for Gionee i heard), and guess what :
after 4 months of owning it, one day he complained to me about his phone not being able to put his contact list correctly.
I asked what's wrong, he told me each time he adds a contact he doesn't know where it goes etc.. So basically he uses only history to call someone.
I had to guess on phone that the sorting order was incorrect and that he never heard about the "menu" button. When i taught him that, he was like, damn iphone is so much simpler. And this is from a guy who was physicist.
Got many stories about android and people vs Apple and people. So for me, it's only a question of knowing or wanting to know.

Would you buy that ?

Michael Parker, 05 Mar 2015You obviously have no idea of the sort of people who get contacts if you think money is no big... moreOr maybe you are the one being to narrow minded. Because you can't categorize people being under or without contracts.
Price was an argument pushed around over here.
I agree it's a good argument if buying a brand new unlocked version. So your 100$ steps makes "a bit of sense" (see my previous posts for the quotes) money speaking.
Then you entered the subject of people under contracts.
Sorry to tell you that, this is totally different.
Maybe i was a bit strong on words saying they can afford. But between paying 900$ for a phone or 300$, i don't give the same importance to the pricing argument.
Dear Sam you screwed up again by not having SD card slot ,removable battery or bigger battery in its present configuration for the last 8 yrs I have bough your products note 1 note 2 note 3 S4 S5 and note 4 when note 6 would hit the market I planned to be in line and be the first on my block to sport it however not his time Sam
If Samsung is so great why can’t they come up with a unique design? By unique i mean complete different, not similar to a BETTER phone brand?!
Aleske, 05 Mar 2015Could this design look anymore like the Iphone 6?! Lol!?To all kids saying, "hello iphone 6's bottom", here you go, since you don't know how to click on this nice database's site :

Steve Max, 05 Mar 2015"Can't afford" isn't the point. The point is to consider the cost/benefit ratio of t... moreThe point is that you are all having a useless discussion. It's not a religion. I don't know what you are trying to preach and prove if internal + microsd addition.
People gets what they want to get.
If for you, you need such a ratio before buying a phone, this can't be suitable for everyone. See Iphone users for example ? Each iphone sells at least 2 times more than one Galaxy S. Do they spent their time argueing about microsd card slot ? I don't think so.
Myself, i use a lot of space too yes. Would i need to complete with a microsd card slot ? Not if i have 64/128gb on board, at least for this year.
Why would i carry 128gb of same data everyday on me ?
Do i need that everyday? Like watching 3gb pdf's for work, 10 4K movies, listening to 30gb music, having 30gb apps ? All in same time everyday? Do you know how long a battery last and how many hours you stay awake everyday? That's the things to ask yourself if you have a problem with "not enough" space, give me my microsd slot for a phone.
When i go on vacation for 1 month abroad, i don't fill my phone but one hard drive and my tablet's microsd (because with such a bigger screen, there you can enjoy your data).
Personnaly, i have bought 4 phones last year. Not because i'm rich or something, i have 3 different carriers and on the contrary of you, i like smartphones and tech. Maybe you will prefer spend that money on your computer or car or movies. But i like those pieces of tech. So i'm not specially buying a 64/128gb phone telling me, damn, there's no sd slot, how will i manage this in 3 years?
Data come and go, we all have computers in here, so we can clean up if necessary, take stuff back, put others.
Now, all like taking examples of big microsd cards but i'm sure that 90% of you haven't bought a 128gb micro sd and didn't intend to before at least 6 months (time prices go below 50$).

Absolute stunner,beautiful phone, just waiting to get my hands on this piece of art. .

They just made galaxy s6 same as iphone6 so user will choose iphone6 instead.
Jovan Leon, 05 Mar 2015People may think this is a copy of the iPhone 6 because at a glance, it is. But when you know ... morenailed it gun'na..
the power efficiency of this unit should be insane for those that want it to last, and the ability for it to really perform should be over the top of everything else.
For such a tight product, having removable battery and micro SD slot just opens up the manufacturer to having issues with 3rd party products.. so, why not just go for a better build and less headaches and take the crown for a seamless fascia as well?
There should be a cost effective version without finger print scanner, dust/water proof, and other top premium features ... i personally don't feel these features are so much in trend or people will mind sacrificing.. i would like to pay more for higher mp camera than dust proof ...
