Anonymous, 14 Jan 2015No FM Radio! Unacceptable..... so sadPreliminary specs.
Sorry about earlier post it was meant for S5 forum.
Was gonna upgrade from s3 to note 3 neo but changed my mind i m gonna be purchasing the Htc one e8 better than buying laggy exynos powered samsung droids...
Wow 20MP, I hope there's an improvement on camera picture quality not only the camera's pixel
Liking this phone a lot and one thing is standing out,,,,grip..I have no case on this like i did my Nokia's and find that it;s secure in the hand.So much more to do and much more fun Android..IOS is great simple stress free and super polished video recording every time but boring.My Sony Z3C has failed me too many times with video recording just cannot trust it cause crashes a lot.
Problems are battery life is short and using 50% brightness..This size of phone is absolute limit i just hope Sammy keep it this size..I want to try Nexus 6 but it's ridiculous size..
Cannot see much difference with lollypop just aesthetics really and Quadrant gives mega slow 5060 so must be something wrong maybe not Lollipop optimised.Got couple of Polish apps on this ROM which is understandable e-Kiosk and Rzeczpospo ?????
GadgetDoc, 13 Jan 2015I do consider Samsung as a leader in this arena - to some extent. Samsung has brought new feat... moreI think and still do think the biggest evolution to the phone was the addition of a camera..Since then nothing mind-blowing has been added that is used so much,,even by normobs..
Screens were already there with all the other bits there too..They have added sensors and heart monitors but nothing as big as adding a camera.Until the next big thing is added "which i thought would be real mobile TV(DVB-H)" will phones have an evolutionary change.
I wish for second mini screen like clamshells had on outside put just above main screen..This screen would have all info on constantly to glance at plus scrolling ticker with breaking news or whatever you wish.Also switches on side to swith between video/camera/gallery like S/E did.Why can't we have a slide down qwerty keyboard with D-Pad on for precision control of equaliser sliders that are nightmare on touchscreen.
I don't think anyone will blow us away this year just the same old slab.
I do consider Samsung as a leader in this arena - to some extent. Samsung has brought new features to phone and many have copied making it standard expectations. However, in past couple years Samsung seems to be falling behind or forgetting to lead. Why have we not seen dual speakers on Samsung phones yet? Retinal scan/ iris scan may add to more security and would be welcome too. I was glad to see built in oxygen sensor in Note 4, that is not much talked about yet, but practically speaking dual speakers will be a much more welcome feature than oxygen sensor! As S6 is not finalized yet, I hope to see all the specs listed here AND dual speakers -hopefully with excellent reproduction of sound.
Why the hell samsung doesnt provide radio with its high end sets.... A smatphone should be complete with all features like the galaxy s3 was ..s3 was the best smatphone of the whole S series till date..
Can you make the vibration strong enough to be felt??? My S5's vibration is completely worthless. Take a page out of Blackberry's book.
Samsung is not bad phone , but its boring ... every samsung looks same .... i think that sony xperia z4 and htc one m9 will be much better

I never liked the audio quality of Samsung.
Samsung not have capability in term of audio.
If you a music freak or audiophile & need a superior audio quality.
Go for Sony Xperia Z4.
Sony Xperia Z4 will be the greatest smartphone in term of audio quality !!!
It is will be a "Real" Music High Resolution Walkman Smartphone.
It is will be The Greatest Water Resistant Smartphone.
