Seems like the Galaxy S6 has improved in few features and other core features it has gone down. I would not exchange my Galaxy S5 Dual sim for this piece even if provided for free.
Removable battery is easier to replace if the battery goes bad. Which generally is the tendency after a year of use. No sd card. Thats stupid. Recovering files from a crashed mobile was always better when using sd card. Another point down for S6. This one is not even water proof. And don't think they are gonna release it in dual sim.
Yes the chipset and features are improved but have missed on a few core features I would want in my mobile.
It was a big heart break to look into the S6 specs and I was hopefully waiting for its details. I for one will not be getting this one for sure.

No SD Slot , 128gb isn't that small for a... moreS4 and S5 often freezes up. with a removable battery you dont have to worry for reset.
in expansion cards its not all about on what you store, its also about how to transfer files much easier.
and now we need to worry in accidental drops, so whats with the design if we will buy protective case.
S6 upgrades the design but removed features like removable battery, expansion cards and IP protection. Now Samsung competes only for the looks and this may disappoint them this year. with regards to touch wiz its still unconfirmed if its better now since nobody have used it yet.
Camelon, 02 Mar 2015Where is radio. Ok i understood they dont add FM radio option but at least they could add DAB ... moreThere are a few good Digital Radio Apps you can install, some of these apps even let you record content to listen back to later. I have 2 Digital Radio Apps on my S5 "myTuner" & "TuneIn", both of these are very good digital radio apps that don't cost much for the full versions to get all the features you require. Both of these apps let you listen to any station from any country that broadcast over the internet, these apps will use data to listen to unlike FM Radio, but if you have a good phone plan from your mobile provider this should not be a problem, unless your data plan is only a few hundred megabyte's.
Guys we all know that we bought samsung products only and only for:
1- The acces to change the UI.
2- To drag and drop files on our PC.(no itunes)
3- SD Card.
4- Removable battery.
Sometimes we chose something useful instead of a beauty one.
No one will buy a samsung product because of its beauty (i have a Galaxy S4) and all of you know this ;)
We would choose the iphone wich is way ahead from the others for the design!
Low battery storage, 2k display, and non-removable battery. You will need a powerbank

Anonymous, 03 Mar 2015In my opinion no sd card but had 32 GB internal is ok. i had note 2 with 16 GB internal memory... moreThat because your Note 2 come with outdated low resolution 8MP & 1080p camera, those photo & video you taken only need small memory, compare to S6 which is 16MP & 2160P video, that double of your antique Note 2, so don't compare, 32GB is not enough for S6.
Imran9, 02 Mar 2015Why do you need to replace a battery and I mean its 2015.
New minimum internal storage of 32... moreYes the infrastructure is there for cloud services and power banks etc but why should I have to make even 1 compromise?
I'm not like those iPhone Fanboys who even as you see them constantly having to delete apps, need to use a computer and tablet to make up for the things it can't do and have to constantly worry how much charge they have and they'll keep blindly defending it.
I expect every new phone I get to have more features every year and not have to think how much I can bring myself to compromise just because the phone is made of metal.
And anyway metal is a bad material for a phone because it affects signal, conducts heat and is actually more prone to damage because it doesn't flex like plastic does.
Looks great,elegant,for now i will stay with my N5,maybe Lg G4 will be my next smartphone..;)
People are far to quick to judge here. No one has beared in mind that the s6 is running android 5 which introduced project volta, a 14nm octa core chip (BIG.little architecture, which should be hugely efficient) super fast flash memory which should also save processing power and in turn battery. Ultra power saving mode is still there for emergencies. The non removable smaller battery may not be as much of an issue as people think. Besides power bricks are readily available and cheap and small enough to carry around. I say wait for the reviews before passing judgement
In my opinion no sd card but had 32 GB internal is ok. i had note 2 with 16 GB internal memory & 16 GB sd card and found it good. also my lumia 1020 has 32 GB internal storage but its fine. its individual preference so it matters on your purpose and usage everyone had different standards.
No removable battery , power bank , not a big deal.
No SD Slot , 128gb isn't that small for a phone.
But no water resistant this backward move.
Dedo, 02 Mar 2015Looks like iPhone ;/Nope, compare iphone 6/6s with samsung note 2 so you will know and judge which design is genuine.
Even Steve Jobs wouldn't of done this, I'm waiting for the S6 mini and hoping the removable battery and SD card slot are there....
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015Finally Samsung has manufactured something worth to buy.. S6Why is THIS one worth to buy and not the previous Galaxies S? May be because it resembles iPhone with no SD and no removable batt?? I guess you are another j*rk addicted to iPhone limitations.
As a Galaxy S lover, I think this not the end of the world, but it's a step backwards.
