I am a fan of removable memory but its not bad if it helps performance and they don't charge too much for the max.
The non removable battery is a concern, but thinking about the last 3 phones i have had the batteries were still good after 2 years each. With the low cost of portable storage batteries to recharge with there should not be a need for removing the battery.
If the software locks up you can force reboot without removing the battery.
I really like my S4 and will look at this a a possible upgrade after release and some real use reviews.
I'm owner of galaxy s4 and i was really disappointed, i was planning to change to the galaxy s6, but now i change my opinion and I'll stay with the best mobile that samsung made .. the galaxy s4
AnonD-124697, 01 Mar 2015RIP Samsung. Very bad at copying.How are Samsung copying iPhone when Samsung factory made iPhone's processor?
Don't have to convince any one else..this is the phone for me..design, performance, cameraaaa, wireless charginggg finger scannerrr..design from meizu (apple copied them) all in one package. Take my money and give me the green s6 edge!!
No sd. Smaller batt no waterproof????!!!!! I keep my s5 active another year.
Guys, many manufacturers starting making phones with non removeable batteries. For example: sony made phones in the past with removable batteries and later with coming out xperia's series it has non removable. So now its time for samsung i think.
Having a removable battery is an absolute must. I have been brand loyal for so long, why samsung.... why?
Terrible move regarding SD and battery. Removing SD is far worse of a move. This "Premium" feel is not worth the losses
AnonD-239284, 01 Mar 2015They tried to copy apple...check for the design underneath copied from apple...no card slot an... moreBtw iphone 6 is a copy of galaxy s3 but with different mterial so its copy of old sam version
AnonD-365838, 01 Mar 2015You non informated guys, the new 14nm proccesor is consuming a way lower energy so the battery... moreDoes not matter the 2 biggest battery eaters since smartphones I've used since 2003/4 is display brightness and the network signal..If your in sun the screen will need to be cranked up and poor 3g signal and phone will eat battery.
My biggest disappointment is design, yet again.
No news. The same as S5. No double stereo speakers, no removable battery(big minus) I did not thought that this s6 will be such disappointment. I do not understand why Samsung do not use stereo front speakers like HTC. And non-removable battery is a very big problem after 1 yer use and you want to replace it and you just have to accept this after paying a lot of money ???
S6 SPECS VERY DISAPPOINTING- for a new samsung flagship-shal sink quickly - we bet- we had hope for 2 new s6 for upgrades in april 2015- but NOT now ..samsung have shot themselves by COPYING- badly- IPHONES 6 SERIES ..FIXED BATTERY - NO Cardslot - projected expensive buy costs ..
Disappointed, why would they go with no SD card slot and a non removable battery? That is a feature I could always top the alleged lovers with, Hey, can you upgrade your memory, I can. Come on Samsung, you're killing me.
