So, please go and use an iPhone first before talking.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015Ah crap! No SD card and removable battery? So i HAVE to buy the 128Gig version? No thanks! ... moreSamsung devices sucks cause they just launch new products which reduces the old devices.
i understand some of the complaints about lack of sd slot and removable battery, but you guys brought this on yourselves. At the end of the day, samsung is solely concerned about moving product... apple sold a record amount of smartphones with the lack of the aforementioned features while the s5 and note4 had mediocre numbers. So you guys are sending a pretty loud and resounding message. Samsung is just replying.

On android, you can also use software directly from your phone to do your backups/restores on the fly : sprite backup, titanium etc..
But originally, you were bragging about managing your contents, not full backups etc.., so make up your mind. If you need to launch such an app to copy 3 directories before going to work, it's your problem.
Android and Galaxy S are about choices, it's not the debate here : but if you don't know them, try to look for Airdroid, Kies Air etc. Maybe you can learn 1 thing or 2.

You Appleboys should stay on your side of the fence and not cross over. All Samsung Galaxy phones have always had a micro SD card. This is a big change and I won't be buying a SG6 due to this design flaw, also.
Iam not sure if i will buy s6.I own two samsung S4 and note4 I do not see much difrence with S6 unless samsung convince me other wise.Thank you.
Most people I know and I, don't buy Google phones because of the lack of SD cards.
Removing the SD-CARD eliminates the only advantage Samsung has over Straight Google phones.

But most non-savy users want a one-in-all solution for backing up their phone, contacts and media, and nothing in the Android world can offer that.
I plug my iPhone into my PC or Mac, and it automatically backs up, syncs downloaded apps and media, and let's me have a full image of my phone that I can use in emergencies. Restoring a back-up with iTunes restores my phone to the last used state.
Show me a software that can do that with a click of a button.

The market wants bigger, thinner phones, this can't be achieved with a removable battery. They had to follow the market in this regard.
Thats ridiculous I mean they r going to step up from full hd to quad hd no of pixels increased no of cpu cores also step up from 4 to 8 octa core and battery goes below s4 2550mah only I think it should b at least 3000mah for quad hd display.
Battery will drain so quickly as compared to all galaxy s series. also step up from 4 to 8 octa core and battery goes below s4 2550mah only I think it should b at least 3000mah for quad hd display.

Going with the growing need of media. 8 Years ago, we didn't have 1080p movies and now that we do, we have larger storage options. It's always been about performance with Apple.
There's a sane and logical reason for it.
With a good content management system, external storage isn't needed. iTunes offers super easy management of movies and music, and to an extent images.
Kies and other software are still in the stone ages when it comes to usability - and COMPATIBILITY. I can't tell you the nightmares I've lived through with Kies...
