Absolute stunner,beautiful phone, just waiting to get my hands on this piece of art. .
Ashok, 05 Mar 2015The only reason why i used to buy SAMSUNG android phones was because of 'removable battery and... moreSame here, whoever made the decision from samsung to remove removable battery and card slot made a big mistake in my opinion. They just made galaxy s6 same as iphone6 so user will choose iphone6 instead.
AnonD-7433, 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 ...
I think they should've release:
Galaxy S6 in 32gb and 64gb with (removable battery),with (micro sd slot) and with IP67 waterproof
Galaxy S6 Edge in 128gb without (removable battery), without (micro sd slot) and with 3000 mAh battery.
After the long time Samsung has done job really well. I was supposed to buy iphone but this phone attracted me so irresistibly. Really mouth watering phone!
People may think this is a copy of the iPhone 6 because at a glance, it is. But when you know deeper, it's a much much better version than the iPhone 6, hence it is NOT a copy of the iPhone, since a copy means an imitation with the same or lesser quality than the original. Wouldn't anyone agree with me? I mean, first, the internal storage maybe unexpandable, but it starts with twice the capacity (32 GB version instead of 16 of the iPhone) and it's the kind that is almost three times faster than that of the iPhone 6.
And then there's the battery. Both maybe non user removable, but the S6 is guaranteed to last you much longer on a single charge because of the 14nm CPU and super amoled display and other tweaks, there's also universal wireless charging built in and the crazy fast charging to get you 4 hours in just 10 minutes of charging. Yet I haven't even mention the innovative Ultra Power Saving mode. Starting to get it? Then there's the display. It's Super Amoled Quad HD vs HD LCD. I know, right? Overkill. It's like killing a fly with a bazooka. But hold up. There's a reason for the overkill. Virtual reality. It's something that the iPhone can only dream of. Ok what else? Camera (s)? It's like no competition from the cameras specs alone. It's 16 & 5 MP of f/1.9 aperture with OIS, auto HDR and infra red for white balance. Need I say more? How about CPU/GPU, performance, build quality, sensors, etc? Hm.. Let's just say, it's really nothing like the iPhone. It's on another level. :)
Hahaha this is a joke!
samsung want to be exclusive, but they products is very dissapointing. I never buy this phone at this price.... like many other devices from samsung which is too much pricey
m86k, 05 Mar 2015Yes and No. Expandable memory means that you can add/keep more documents/media/others on a ... more"Can't afford" isn't the point. The point is to consider the cost/benefit ratio of the 128GB S6 versus (say) an M9 plus a 128GB MicroSD. It's not like you buy everything you can afford (else you'd buy tens of phones every year, from Apple, Samsung, HTC, Sony, Huawei, etc!). You buy the best option for you. And IMHO, any phone where I'm bound to the internal storage isn't a good option. I say that since the N95 8GB, passing through the iPhones, the M7, etc. Even if the 128GB version costed as much as a 16GB Xperia Z1, I'd go for the Xperia because emy data is more important to me.

Samsung had this design before the ibend 6..
check the samsung ATIV S page from 2012 and you'll find that you're just an ignorant.
This next to my Galaxy S5 LTE-A its heaven!! FYI! the naysayers, harden-haters and the rest of their group, I quote "will be the ones to buy to purchase this beast at the end of the day after all". Hate all you want to hate it doesn't matter b'cos sammy will still be making a lot of profit that can feed your entire life generations :D. As for me? Sammy pls take my money as long as you keep delivering an astounding quality and performance or should i say "Shut up and take my money!" :D. Way to go sammy and i fully understands why you ditch the external sd card which some seems to not fully comprehend and the rest absent features? Meh..
no more sd-card slot, no more replacement battery, unibody, it is an iphone now!

I personaly have nano sim cutter and adapters. And 3 of my phones are using nano format.

Expandable memory means that you can add/keep more documents/media/others on a phone/Tablet, not necessarily that you can install more stuff, especially when you go below 1gb free on internal memory even if you have 90gb free on your 128gb external.
This is a debate i already had here for S3 years ago as soon as i bought it and saw those not even 9gb free and people kept replying as ignorant as they, just add a microsd (which i had already of course).
You are going in every direction at once. If people are under contracts with an S6, so money is no big deal for them, they won't have to shuffle 900$ from their pockets, more like 300/400$ so they can go for 64/128gb versions.
I'm without any contract and i'm aiming at 64/128 version.
But stop with this useless debate, Samsung is releasing the phone as it is, i don't see the point of trying to argue with something which will be staying as a flagship for a whole new year. Better take a seat at S7 page (when it appears) and start wishing here.
You want more storage options? Well, get another phone if you can't afford a 64/128gb S6, simple right ?
But at the very first, were you even intending to buy a S6 and which phone do you have currently ?
AnonD-370735, 05 Mar 2015Really ?Yes.
I would give the S6 the win for the processor though, as Samsung Exnos processors are usually paired with Wolfson DACS (the sound chip) and Audiophiles prefer them.
To be fair I have the Snapdragon version of the Note Edge which has the DAC built into the Snapdragon system chip and it sounds phenominal.
To be fair I bluetooth the sound half the time which bypasses the onboard DAC anyhow, so, moot!!
S-Pen is awesome, removable battery means nil to me, and if Samsungs pricing structure for the bigger capacity storage phones is fair, then it is better to have less power drain than run multiple chips. (we need really fast/high quality storage as 4K recording is intense)
I guess we could argue, that now the S6 isn't water protected, a 'drowned phones' memory is lost.. whereas if I drown my Note Edge I can remove the memory chip with all my photos etc...
I do think that the S6 with a power sipping Mali processor could tie with the Notes for endurance of power.. if the antenna setup was as good.. which SAR testing indicates is not likely...
I guess we can just wait and see; but I reckon with confidence anyone is safe to buy into any of these phones... they are all exceptional!
