This phone looks just like the iPhone 6, of course leave it to samsucks to copy yet another apple design or idea.. I'm not a hater I like both but iOS is still better and more intuitive. Even with apples restrictions, and if they removed them iOS would blow any android device out of the water any day. You guys think apple people are bad with being brand wh**** but I've never seen anyone as bad as a Samsung brand wh****, those people are the absolute worse!!! And I work at cell phone retailer and trust me I deal with both types everyday.

I only installed that for the USB debugging drivers I think, when I had an S4 and Note 10.1" 2014 (sold both and got LG G2 and Air 2). All 4 of these devices were rooted and rommed on the day of purchase, except the Note which had no roms yet so it was only rooted for a couple months. You could say I'm not the typical user.
m86k, 05 Mar 2015That's a bad example Michael :)
This is the reason why i stopped gaming on my galaxy phones... moreDon't you hate the big fail that devs like Gameloft do with their file system?
There is a solution, though I haven't tried it since Jellybean on my Note 10.1 (2014) about 8 months ago. It's called FolderMount (there is another one too but FolderMount was better than the rest when I was using it). You basically choose what folder you want to spoof (dynamic link?) and it mounts a folder on your SDcard. So I set up the OBB folder and basically all the data that the standard "move to SD card" fails to do is in OBB so it is located on the SD card. It didn't hurt load time that much, though I did have a 35mb/sec mem card, which is decently fast. After that, I had like 8 Gameloft games installed that occupied over 10GB in my redicted OBB folder, and other companies' games as well taking up another 10GB+. I think there is another folder that is helpful to redirect, too, like the amazon appstore cache and google music cache or something like that, oh ya and my downloads folder since I would download roms and large files at times. It was mainly all about that OBB folder though. Stupid app devs...don't they know there are tons of poor souls with 16GB device that only have 9GB free with zero apps installed other than the stock ones?

I do that too. Auto backup using sprite backup:
Contact/Sms/MMS/Call logs and have enabled auto-upload for photos on dropbox (got 53gb).
[ Despite i have microsd. ]
I have several accounts on others like box (50 too i think) and onedrive (115gb). So when i'm home and bored, sometimes i just do some sorting and archiving on them and on an external hard drive.
Even for a lazy/not tecchy person with low data plan, Kies offers good and easy synching/backuping options.
Better be safe than sorry.
cata, 05 Mar 2015No fm but is available in playstore as an aplication to download and install but having no sd ... moreYeah, people that want to protect from losing data from a crash can do it easily without a mem card if they want. Like me for instance. I have a free 56GB drop box that pictures, videos, and any app-changes (app updates or app data like local save games) gets sync'd to via Titanium once a week in the middle of the night if the phone is charging at the time. It also covers personal data like SMS/MMS/Call Log and other items that Android doesn't sync with your gmail account automatically. Usually the scheduled backup doesn't have to upload much, but I can restore any app or game or whatever data I want from various points in time if needed, and of course pics and videos are sync'd to not only DropBox but also Google Photos and Wastebook (Facebook). You could do it with the basic 5GB free DropBox too if you don't take too many videos and pictures.
I am a Verizon LG G2 user, so I am ready for the S6 since I already have no microSD nor removable battery, plus I have two Qi wireless chargers that will work well for slow charging the S6 at night and at work. I can't wait for a gold S6 Edge 64GB to match my gold 64GB iPad Air 2. To quote Gold Member "I love gooooooold. The look of it, the taste of it, the smell of it, the texture..."
bob, 04 Mar 2015a compare with note 3 who battery is 3200 amp !!! note 3 4-5 h non stop on wifi the iphone 6 ... moreSigh...why do I feed the bob-troll?
As far as battery life goes, it's:
Note 3 < iPhone6+ < Galaxy S5 < Note 4
They are all pretty close actually, but this is from fairly accurate testing, not a made up "how it feels" opinion that "bob" likes to pull outta thin air.
dexter, 04 Mar 2015That's because the iPhone 6 plus is a bigger phone with a bigger battery. Compare the 6 Plus w... morePlus the S5 beats the iPhone6+ in battery tests, though it's a close battle. The batteries are nearly the same, 2800 vs 2915, screens are both 1080p, and battery life nearly the same. They both beat the Note 3 barely and the Note 4 beats both of them barely. This is all based on GSMArena's battery endurance tests, which I trust for the most part.
AnonD-370735, 04 Mar 2015About 40% of A8 are still produced by Samsung also TSMC lost to Samsung for its 14nm Node that... moreWell iFixIt's teardown of an iPhone6 clearly shows Elpida memory, so maybe they made it for some of the iPhone6's.
I didn't realize Samsung made that many of the A8/A8X chips, interesting. I thought it was going to be all TSMC.
Samsung beat people to the punch for their semi-fake 14nm, and it looks like the A9 will be made by Samsung. And the LPDDR4 lead that they have is going to be good for them, too. Man Samsung is huge. I guess Apple has no choice but to use Samsung parts, lol!
bob, 04 Mar 2015i hawe samsung s5 and iphone 6 plus ,the 6 plus hawe a two thimes more juice then s 5 it last ... moreSorry Bob, wrong again. Your personal experience does not disprove the fairly scientific battery life tests on sites like GSMArena where the S5 does in fact outlast the iPhone6+, though it's really close actually (S5 = 83h rating, 6+ = 79h rating). I'm pretty sure the S6 will have nearly as good battery life as both the S5 and iPhone6+, probably just a hair less. Just go back to your iPhone6+ that you think lasts twice as long as your S5...
I don't like the way Samsung is ruining it's prestige by imitating apple and making devices with limited features.
It's a very stupid strategy to reduce your capability to become like someone who is tracking you...
Why someone should do that?
Samsung is trying to emulate iphone. everybody know this. Im talking about features , not about design
AnonD-56991, 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.
Aleske, 05 Mar 2015If Samsung is so great why can’t they come up with a unique design? By unique i mean complete... moreLike a triangle totally transparent phone with rear camera on the side and no speaker holes at all Tiny enough to enter any pocket ?
Would you buy that ?
m86k, 05 Mar 2015The point is that you are all having a useless discussion. It's not a religion. I don't know w... moreApple is almost like a religion and there is studies to show that, And the reason most iPhone users don't complain is that almost no one who enjoys and understands their phone would want an iPhone because they are just so limited, and you just can't seem to comprehend that a huge amount of us buying the Galaxy just don't sit back and take what we're given like you expect people to.
