There are a lot of comments pointing out that s6 copied the fruit device, small battery and no expandable storage, and this means "total and utter failure." Here's some points in favour of the s6
1. For those who have seen the mwc event, a direct comparison was made with photo and video of s6 and the fruit product. For the information of fruit users happy to be using 8mp for multiple generations(read : forever) that should be an eye opener.
2. The s6 edge looks great in the hands on pics and vids at mwc, and which device was the edge copied from ?? If your response is the design is meaningless then please withold from such response till there is detailed review or usage of the final product by the people.
3. Complaints about battery life cannot be made without actual usage statistics. The mAh figure is just representative of the battery capacity and not of how efficient the device is or how well optimized. The G3 and the Note4 are fine examples on the bottom and top of the battery usage characteristics.
4. About the removable storage...
a. the mwc event revealed usage of the new flash storage which will be a big upgrade in r/w speeds.
b. Lets say you want to record a 4k video, what will be the processing times of a class 4 or even class 10 micro sd compared to the flash storage
c. until the price points of the storage options are released it cannot be said whether sammy follows the path of cupertino in charging a huge premium for every increment in storage.
It is just a matter of time that Samsung will realize that they made the wrong decision of removing the SD Card Slot and removable battery on Galaxy S6. I just hope they will bring back those features on Galaxy S7. There are many advantages of having an SD Card Slot and removable battery and other users just don't realize it.
In my opinion the design is cool. Yep it has that iphone 6 look but its cool. When we talk about space yep that is bad. I think that 32 gig is fair for phone. Whay do you need more? I love to use SD cards they are quick. The last thing that I hate is battery life. Man its soo short! But good thing that we have wireless charging so battery change is not needed! You can charge it anywhere if there is that option. Thats not bad! When you look from all perspectives its not that bad. But still s5 is not too, so i will wait for s7 or pass to LG or Huawei
I always buy the samsung latest flagship but not this time. The features which i love most in samsung are gone. No more removable battery and card slot.i never minded its plastic externals. I hope oh pls samsung listen to this. Retain the removable back and replaceable battery and card slot for samsung galaxy note 5.
I would like say that all Samsung mobiles comes with same look no major difference I think it should come in metal body and sharp corners with glossy finish

If you hadn't, now it's up to you.
adpk, 03 Mar 2015whaaaaat general public.. dont say that plz.. u can see here aroud 98%% of comments are people... moreThere are no such 98% of comments over here saying that.
Maybe half, and total of people commenting maybe represents 1% of total smartphones sales. So?
Your price comparison is good, excepted that the internal storage of S6 is 3times faster than fastest and most expensive microsd card you can find which i doubt many over here are buying.
Excepted for some situations, 64/128gb variant may be adequate in daily usage with otg adapter for the rare times you need to travel with stuff or do some transferts.
Else, if it's really wrong, why are you wasting your time at crying here ? Go look at other phones. S6 will be released as this, it's not like Samsung is going to cancel production for you guys 1 month before release.
(well who knows, but i really doubt it).
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2015Then just get an otg cable and a 512 gig usb. This phone isnt made for you, the general public... moreLOL. OTG cable?. what a stupid downgrade!. there are so many ppl complaining about missing microSD, not just him. if S6 is not made to people like him, expect samsung lost many consumer.
iOS, 03 Mar 2015The gold one is like an iphone 6 goldGo look at S6 gold videos and say that again.
The design is an evolution rather than a revolution, too much like Iphone 6, I do not have a problem with that, for me the only disappointing thing is that Samsung does not offer a complete phone. SD Card gone, FM Stereo Radio Gone, battery and removable back gone (I can live without this though - maybe you ca change it quite easy unplugging a few screws) Temperature sensor gone, IP67 gone symmetrical design on camera position gone ... micro sim gone ... nano is so stupid for a phone this big ... usb 3.0 gone ... protective dust pad for usb gone ...

Anonymous, 03 Mar 2015LOL. You are NOT efficient. 4 microsd cards 128gb filled with 1080p bluray movies? Seriou... moreyes bro u are right but iam a university student and all my stuff are in sd cards and iam traveling so much.. so 4 cards in my back cover of the phone makes me very comfortable and i change them quickly
I think this phone not really amazing like S4 or S5 when it comes! If I see the spec, it's just for 2015 trends, I think more amazing Asus when release Zenfone 2 thanks to its RAM reach 4GB! I don't interest with this phone, really!
I just like m9 more Htc have better cpu and better battery but the screen Samsung.....
