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.
no SD and no removable battery :'( ewwwh :'( okay no need radio :/ but SD card :/ :&
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2015Yes you are right, another disappoint from SAMSUNG for it's Galaxy loversYes, some people don't need that heavy processor. But some people want. It depends on consumers.
androidexpert, 03 Mar 2015I see for 3 days after s6 launch.and you crying for removable battery and sd card.it.s 2015 ev... moreI don't think you realise what you are saying, it's 2015 so no need for sd card, does that make sense ? Of course you need an sd card, games are now going to go over the 1gb mark, some will eventually pass 2gb, you have photo's and videos which will need to be moved to the sd card especially 4k video, I have already filled my 128gb sd card and I need alot more, it is so silly for people in this era to question why we need an sd card, it's obvious. Personally I can''t wait for the 200gb sd card to be released and I shall be the first to purchase one!
Knopfler, 03 Mar 2015Guys we all know that we bought samsung products only and only for:
1- The acces to change t... moreI disagree mostly for 3 and 4.
Personnaly, i bought Galaxy S series because of features, UI (i like touchwizz, it's well thought) and yes design.
I had to use SD cards (got tons of them) because of low internal space on all previous models, even on my tablet. But now if i can go with a 64/128gb one, i won't mind dropping my sdcards. And with that freaky storage speed, yum.
Removable battery, i never cared about it, as i said elsewhere, the only time i was removing battery, was while flashing custom roms or having to swap microsd/sim cards. If i ran out of juice, well too bad, i would just look for a charger, that's it. But now power banks exist in all sort of sizes.
For design, S4 was beautiful, far more than S5. But S6 looks great again.
So for all those reasons, S6 definitely worths its hype.
Even google VP recognized it.
Nothing is special in this phone,
There is no need of such heavy processor, it will just help to DRAIN the battery faster.
There are much better brands in the market like SONY, HTC, APPLE etc.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2015head phone jacks at the bottom? seriously? There's probably reasons to that :
Maybe it's for some future dock / Hifi stereo etc...
Anyway, it's not a big deal, if the phone is in your pocket, you just pull it out and can reach directly your ear without extra rotation.
Or if you are using the phone for texting/browsing, you don't have your wire hanging in front of you or no need to put on side.
Thanks fo the good inovation. But have you failed to create solar charged display or case to increse power duration?
[deleted post]Where is it? Where are the leaks? And it will be hard with a SD810 already dead on board (SD820 announced..)
Enough with all your childish reactions! Most of the people here are like children who are never satisfied of what is given to them. They all want this, want that. Here's the deal. IF YOU DON'T WANT IT, DON'T GET IT. So tired of seeing such comments. As if you know anything about producing or even making a smartphone.
The s6 is a good phone but I hate it because it doesn't have SD card slot, removable battery and it's not waterproof or dustproof Sony is using the same materials for years and still provides these important things. Samsung should learn from Sony .
Why no SD card slot for external memory???
I could almost forgive the non removable battery but no SD card!! I was so looking forward to an upgrade from my S5 but I certainly won't be buying this new S6.
This is a huge blunder from Samsung.
I was aa avid Nokia user. I changed over to Samsung ONLY for the ease-in-use, touch tech, battery power, extendable memory, processor, form, and such features absent in other mobs, but NEVER turned to Apple. Now after so many years in the top market segment, Samsung has reverted to the mundane configuration. fixed bat and no mem card !! 5MP front camera could have been scaled down to 2 or 3 MP which would be easy on bandwidth for 3G and power consumption. One good thing is doing away with Bloatware coming pre-installed. This S6 appears to follow the iPhone. May be a variant on S6 would come soon, but dont name it with 'NEO'
iPhone 6 is better than Samsung s6 in terms of design, build quality and the most important thing the system
iPhone never lag it does its job perfectly.
