Yeah i bought xperia z2 during the period S5 came just to try out other brands but didn't like the feel then went for lg g3 but the screen is just not my taste incorporated with hanging issues I didn't waste time in selling it off but i remember that GSMarena had recently said that sammy had just released a higher version of samsung s5 (lte-a) quite similar to note 4 (more like a mini version of it) though some users felt cheated but I went for it and since then been using it. Now this new S6? Can't wait to lay my hands on it :D

it is sooo much classier than 'anonymous'
all the same, I get you are on a crusade.
I could quote a whole slew of different stats and information and a bunch of it would be first hand.
but you wouldn't listen.
So instead of sharing what sounds like factual info,.. and is, for all intents and purposes 'rubbish', .. why not go buy yourself another phone. You know,.. you change them every couple of weeks.
I guess that iPhone 6+ isn't giving the joy you hoped for, and you find it boring, like the iphones before it, that you moved away from. And tried out a whole stack of other phones.
How about you go find the forum for the phone you like and go write something POSITIVE about it.
Oh, you don't have a home forum.
Sorry, didn't realise you are homeless..
here have two cents, and a muffin.
get well soon ;)
(yes the early galaxies had four or five hours screen on time, they also had teeny batteries and poorly optimised OSs by comparison to today)
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2015In YouTube videos,
S6' front&back glass panel make "much reflection"
Laggy tou... moreJust cause it is on you tube it must be true?
I saw an awesome documentary once that stated the moon landing was faked. It was pretty convincing- until the closing credits rolled, with a kazoo being the music, and the date: April Fools Day.
I can get on you tube and say my Note Edge can peel oranges! (must be true, ye see it on ze idiot box)
I won't even argue these points.. half of them have been well/elegantly argued previously; by many actual tech enthusiasts who live and breathe this stuff (myself included)
The screen might have crazy resolution but that doesn't affect battery life (OLED tech and a breakthrough maybe, but many pundits were surprised when this was put to the test, as it went against the known facts at the time)
Qi charging is great for overnight, or quick topups, and IKEA now offer Qi furniture.
My old nokia with wireless charging built it, gave longer battery life if the qi feature was 'blocked off', so I think this will lead to leakage of power, subtle yes,.. but the world doesn't need inefficient chargers and products.. power is in short supply.
I would tackle each point, but I couldn't care to argue.. the people joining this thread as 'anon's who only write crap about products people are interested in have waaaay to much time up their sleeves and very closed ears.
Good luck with that!
Yes, I feed the trolls, but I often do so in an attempt to educate.
Truth is they don't care, and really, why should anyone bother.. it is just good energy after bad/lame.
The S6 will have killer battery life and phenominal power.
If only someone would talk about the microphones or call quality or something practical...
Feature wise it has hit it out of the park. Lollipop runs touchwiz fine, as most of touchwiz is in lollipop, modern touchwiz is cut down, as half of it isn't needed.
(note: might not technically be 'half', but who cares:its quick now!)
The S6 is going to be awesome.
Stop having penis envy,.. let the buyers enjoy their new toys.
and Yes, we all miss the S5s IPrating.
I don't get how people love replacing their phones every year or less. I think that is why some year models sales are 'weak' cause the users of the last model are acutally happy with what they have got, and for a long time Samsung phones offered no 'good looks' that needed to be upgraded.
Now they have a nice looking model, most happy sammy campers are ALL thinking to upgrade.
Good work to Samsung, this tech is ahead of its time, and no doubt the reason why so much of this tech is bought by apple (when samsung is willing to sell it to them - they didn't give OLED, but much of the stuff does get shared)
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2015Worst mobile not even worth $100. Better buy iphone 6 or htc m9 or sony xperia z3 or lg g3.
... moreAny samsung device owner can do the test entering *#7353# on the dialer and choose TSP Grid test.
Just did it on my S5 and Alpha, it's same and nobody has ever complained about that
So unverified copied/pasted claim.
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2015Worst mobile not even worth $100. Better buy iphone 6 or htc m9 or sony xperia z3 or lg g3. ... moreNice find, but this seems to exist on many samsung devices according to comments on p-arena, even on S4 and S5. This is more for preventing accidental touch on sides. So better luck next time.
What’s been going on? Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge is launching next month and what I’ve heard that my insider friend said price gonna be RM2.5k for 128GB. http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/samsung-galaxy-s6-release-date-news-and-features-1232945

If it is yo... moreI'm not trying to defend anything unlike you.
I've never quoted Nokia or blackberry as arguments. You are such an analyst, they have nothing related to current situation :
What differs with Nokia and BB is that they both had their own OS and didn't try to jump on more developpers-supported OS (until too late for Nokia but we know the story).
Now, all i see is that i'll buy a new device which pleases me whatever your arguments.
And as usual, it will sell more than all other flagships combined (Apple excepted).
So you should do the same, either buying it or not. But no need to make people believe that your truth is the only one for everyone.
No SD + No replacable battery = instant deal breaker.
Thank you very much, this is a no go.

yeah, whatever people are saying, each past year Samsung brought the most efficient phone when you consider the price, the performance and whole package/goodies/features offered.
I was always considering all reviews, but they nail it each time even if it's not by much, results and sales are there to prove it.
I wasn't going to buy S6 due to 16MP not evolving (too much) from S5/Note 4 but that S6 Edge version is the real deal. You get one, you are like 2 years ahead of any smartphone being released if not more.
Sony CEO made some lame announce yesterday to say there's no need to rush a new Z4 out and LG said they are preparing their "premium" model for 2nd half of the year. I think that means everything, if many are blind enough to not see that, we aren't.

It's gorilla glass 4 on S6, and glass on most of phones nowadays, do you really think they waxed the phone to be more reflective than another ?
As far as i know, sony doesn't use gorilla glass, but some plastic hybrid glass of some sort so maybe you get less reflections than other phones, but also cheaper display/cheaper color reproduction (that's why they need to brag about and add triluminos/bravia enhanced tech to get decent display).
On side to side comparisons videos with iphone 6 there was no more reflections on a phone than on another.
And even if it would be a tad reflective, many people snap a (more or less cheap) film protector on it, if not a tempered glass.
Seems like you've never seen a gorilla glass in your real life.
