No need upfront criticize why they removed removable battery & memory card slot, it's bcoz they wanna improve their phone quality in new gen, with internal UFS 2.0 memory will be more faster process than normal sd cards, & battery life span will be last longer than before to prevent changing battery within years and they even built in fast wireless charger receiver. I believe it's a nice phone after all but the only thing I concern whether the price is reasonable.
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2015A micro SD for what when the internal memory is more than enough.The fixed battery guards agai... moreThe fixed battery means dealers will charge a fortune just to change the battery, and a huge amount of people will buy the phone assuming the internal memory is enough only to use the phone more and run out of memory since many games now are over 2gb and UHD video uses a huge amount of memory.
Hope Apple can produce the iphone 6s or iPhone 7 with the Offer of either the Removable Battery or Memory Card Slot,then Samsung would be Really be Disappointed in Copying the iPhone 6,Samsung will really in Bad Trouble with the Galaxy S6,they thought it would get people Really Excited in seeing a Glass phone,but its not Glass people were bothered about,it was All About the Functions the Galaxy S6 as Lost,that as made People Very Angry with Samsung,they will end up like a Old Music Band in a CHINA CRISIS at Samsung Now and its themselves to Blame
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2015You miss the point. One of the reasons people got the Samsung was because of the SD card slot... moreNot enough people did so. Samsung said majority of people didn´t use the SD slot - and they know, they collect usage data from the phones and do surveys. Only technically inclined people use it (like me). But everyone wants simplicity and no file and app transfers between SD and internal memory including you I believe. So let´s just be happy they have 128 GB version - you don´t need SD on that and finally enough of those tranfers to SD after every activity!
no waterproof ? I will wait for s7 ...this is not a good smartphone, s5 is better than this...s6 is replic for iPhone 6
m86k, 04 Mar 2015Here's an interesting list of flagships with non removable battery : All HTC One M series... moreand there a list of phones i've never owned :) as for apple people only get apple because of the status the after a while realize you cant do what other phoned do but by then they have all the add on to there cat , stereo etc and are hard to leave because you integrated your phone into your life but i know loads who have left.
yeah, 04 Mar 2015quite good they removed the sd slot....no point with micro sc now days.....dosnt stand much lo... morebetter are you mad? the points you are making make no sense, i think you work for the company?
Nikolain, 03 Mar 2015To all people bashing Samsung for No Micro SD Card, research about UFS 2.0But it still has no sd card that you can swap between devices
wow this is purely iPhone 6's cousin! Non removable battery, sim slot, side curves, headphone jack n speaker holes, protruding cam, No memory card slot
I consider Samsung as the true leader in Smartphone technology, i like that it pushes boundaries with each new flagships every year. With Galaxy S6 they have proved that they can manufacture all critical components in-house such as Processor, Chipset, RAM and NAND Flash.
I also feel like GSM Arena now specifically needs to mention the following thing in their specifications now:
-64 bit processor
-UFS 2.0 Storage
m86k, 04 Mar 2015Here's an interesting list of flagships with non removable battery : All HTC One M series... moreYou miss the point. One of the reasons people got the Samsung was because of the SD card slot. They voted with the $$ and from the looks of it they will be again and unless LG messes up, they look the be the only game in town.
UFS 2.0 may be fast and Samsung may offer a 128GB model. However my carrier probably won't offer it. They only ever offered the 16GB version of the S5, so I have no confidence they will offer the 64 yet again the 128GB version. Also 128GB SD cards are cheep. The premium to have a 128GB built in is too high.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2015non removable battery and no microSD card slot?
this S6 is worse than the IP67 certified S5.... moreand only 2550 amh battery ...
for such high config...
Will have to charge 3 times a day i guess
I'm so mad the dropped the SD card and removable battery!!!! M9 had the SD card but is still at 1080p so not really an upgrade IMO. So I guess I have to wait for the LG G4 and see if the mess things up. Trouble is i mostly read about problems on the LG so that's not good. Samsung, why, o why did you make such a stupid decision!!!!!!,
quite good they removed the sd slot....no point with micro sc now days.....dosnt stand much longer....prefer with internal storage like iphone.....bigger is better ........hard to crash rather keep everything in sd and suddenly lost due to corrupted file or else.......cant wait to have this one in my pocket.........
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2015A micro SD for what when the internal memory is more than enough.The fixed battery guards agai... moreI would even add that they fix both fake/slow/cheap microSD cards problems with fake/unsecure batteries that way.
And maybe future fake Galaxy S6 too.
Looks like it will cost a lot to get more memory. Don't know if it would be worth it.
A micro SD for what when the internal memory is more than enough.The fixed battery guards against unscrupulous dealers out for mischief.
