What about the phone over-heating problem? S4 and S5 have been heating excessively while playing games or using camera (shooting video/ pictures)
The most disappointing thing about the S6 is there is no more card slot for expandable memory and non removable battery. It's a bad move and it makes the phone looks almost identical to an iphone. Oh my. Samsung just doesn't stand out anymore. Will prob look forward to the LG G4 instead. Hope LG doesn't do the same thing and release another phone like the apple. Fingers crossed!!
MNS Nayon, 03 Mar 2015Why So Low Battery in this phone?Because new DDR4 memory and new cpu 14nm finfet require less power than before and also to keep the design thin and weight light. (go look at HTC M9 specs, you will understand).
i think glass back design is way better than their A Series fones (Metal back).
Im thinking of replacing my xperia Z3 with S6.

You are NOT efficient.
4 microsd cards 128gb filled with 1080p bluray movies?
400$ of sdcards?
Just grab a 5$ OTG adapter and a compact 512 USB stick or even better a 1tb external hdd for 60$ with a 20$ powerbank, done.
glass panel on back actually not big thing to worry. i used iphone 4 for 2 years never had issue of breaking the glass... the thing i really missed is stereo speaker and water resistance.. my galaxy s3 was damaged by just a small drops of rain water when i was on my motorbike..i m using my xperia z from 2013 and have no issue.

Has Samsung done anything to improve the build quality really except for glass back. One the first users of S4. The screen breaks at the drop of a pin. The plastic edges chrome finish is the worse quality. It peels with in 2-3 months, and the company does not take responsibility for the same. Features one of the best, build quality one of the worst in S4
loubielou, 03 Mar 2015Why?did we need a Glass Back on the Galaxy S6,as you buy cases for your phones and they always... moreHmmm ?
1st part you make sense, but 2nd part, it looks like you never owned a smartphone?
Many people use their phone without any protection.
Many others with full leather or silicon or hybrid plastic case with or without window(s).
Many other with just a bumper.
Many other with just a back cover (there are totally transparent ones).
And there are also tempered glass to cover your screen to add protection.
So it's not like you don't have any choice to custom-protect a phone nowadays depending on what you want to be seen or not.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2015Not waterproof!!?? I love that feature! I also prefer to be able to change my battery. The 3.0... moreWaterproof was a nice feature that people said to be gimmick back in time...
Personally, the only time when the feature would have been useful was when i took photos under snowy and rainy weather.. I don't shower with my phone, and on the beach, it stays in the car or in the sand on my towel with someone next to it.
Don't forget even if it's glass on the back, it's still gorilla glass 4, and i will add a thin bumper or a transparent back cover to protect it and not ruin the design.
Why?did we need a Glass Back on the Galaxy S6,as you buy cases for your phones and they always Clip on from the Back,so no one will see the Glass Back All the Time,as theres only Bumper Cases that Protect the Rim of the Phone,but the Front Screen can be easily Broken using Bumper Cases,Samsung just have the Apple phones on there Mind,When they Should be thinking about other Android Phones,will Samsung do the same with the Note 5?then they will be in Big Trouble

This phone isnt made for you, the general public doesnt need an sd card with the storages available on s6. You want to watch movies? Get a computer, 1 terabyte shouldbe enough. Want to take pictures? Just transfer the damn photos to your pc, s6's got usb 3.0, if thats not fast enough i dont know what is. Sd card is slow and is outdated. I don't see bad sales of iphones when it doesnt have an sd card slot, people don't need it, it's a want.
Not waterproof!!?? I love that feature! I also prefer to be able to change my battery. The 3.0 charger was nice too. Okay I do like the metal better but what about the back glass?? It's gonna crack too easy! Sorry samsung but I think I'll stay with s5 unless there's improvement.
currently using s5 16gb internal memory nd jst a 4gb sdcard with it i dnt think so that removing a sdcard slot is a big issue 64gb version would be enough.If anyone deeds a big storage then he or shr can go 128gb
This thing is used to be the best smartphone in 2015. Metal thingy, more luxurious shapes, and something that people have been waiting for : non-removable battery. But lack of FM Radio (since the S4) and the microSD slot is something. Nuh uh, I'll take A5 rather than this.
