I've gotten my samsung s6 for 2 months now.
I love the multi-tasking function where I can minimise windows and use 2 apps at the same time. I love the camera, which produces really clear pictures, and has a huge zoom function. I like the new layout of Messages.
Unfortunately, my Samsung phone has restarted twice on me in the first 5 weeks, and in 2 months it suddenly stopped responding, despite me trying to call it or press buttons. Eventually it restarted.
Also, this phone has a lag time when unlocking the phone, compared to HTC One, my previous phone. Sometimes, after closing apps, it can also take up to 5 seconds to load the home screen.
Next, the fingerprint lock function doesnt work when your fingers are damp.
Lastly, I'm no engineer, but the phone heats up a lot when fast charging.
Other than that, its still a great phone overall, and its interface is great. Not sure how it would compare to other android phones on the market now.
DeVille, 15 Feb 2016Guys, I'm deciding between LG G4 and S6 in Dubai- does S6 come with a fast charger in the box?... moreIt comes with the fast charger tho apparently my mothers one came the standard charger, but might've been a factory mistake
My mum has one of these, seems to have the best camera ive ever used, buttery smooth interface completly lagless, tough premium solid build quality using full glass and metal, best display, cant see the pixels no matter how close u look to the screen, im getting hopefully a gold one in a couple of days cant wait :D

I bought mine in late November 2015 and absolutely love it.
1. Camera is phenomenal, Not many people know this but you can download a bunch of different camera options just by pressing "mode". I am particularly in love with the panorama and the surround shot option. Bonus: ITS ALL FREE :D
2. Big gamer here. A lot of the games I play use quite a bit of space and need a phone that has high performance. I have yet to experience any crashing or lag in any of my games. KEY POINT: Clear your task manager frequently and your phone will not slow down. Also delete crap that you don't use. If you haven't used it in a week, I think it is time to let go.
3. I really do not many complaints about this phone in terms of technology. The battery is a little lacking but since I am on my phone almost 24/7 that is to be expected.
Been using since the 1st day it was launched......superb performance....
Battery problems only if playing coc n high resolution games....if not....it will last 3 days with minumum usages....1.5 day if moderate usages....8 hours heavy usages.....
Really satisfied n recommend for all....

I'm really tempted but the horrible service at samsung really pisses me off!!!!!!! I bought a phone for cash at an edgars store and whilst it was still under warranty the screen cracked. Edgars would not repair it because i have lost the receipt and they can not reprint receipts WTF!!! Then they referred me to 14th Avenue Samsung and apparently samsung wants a receipt too, for their own branded product. Their after sale service is non-existent at all. Daylight robbery!!!!!
I bought 4 of the Samsung 6 last May, We ordered 4 Samsung 6 Edge ATT made a mistake and sent us the wrong ones, Either we kept those or paid a 35. restocking for each phone so we kept them, BIGGEST mistake we have ever made, ALL 4 of the phone are a piece of crap, Either we got a bad batch made or they are all like,, Camera does not focus, I dont know how many pics I had to delete because they did not focus, 3 of the phones have been reset to default twice, Dropped Calls CONSTANT, One daughters Battery only lasts a couple of hours, When I go to bed, at 100 percent Battery 6 hours later its in the 70's I do keep a Otterbox on all of them, When i am on the phone or listening to music I have to keep my phone plugged in as my daughter does too, I have had the Samsung 4 and 5 and none of these problems, Run as fast as you can from the 6, I am still fighting with ATT about these pieces of crap phones over 2800.00 we paid for these, Never again!

Yes, objectively the S6 is the superior phone but right now here in Dubai the G4 is going really cheap and there is an almost $100 lesser than S6, hence I'm thinking of it
Bought Gold S6 32GB model..everything too good abt d device..looks,camera, battery, UI...etc everything is awesome except one thing is body is too slippery to hold..scared of falling off frm hand :(
Gulrez Qureshi, 08 Feb 2016I've been using Samsung s6 for almost 7months, and I've been using Samsung phones for the past... moreThat's why I bye bye Sammy products after S4. I promised myself not to own any Sammy products every again. lol. Customer service is very important. That's why Apple is so successful. They invest lots of money in customer service.
AnonD-490063, 16 Feb 2016Is this phone worth buying? * I am asking for an honest opinion from someone who really own... moreYes, you can go with S6, if you can wait then you could have a look at S7 but when it gets launched price will be too high, so it's up to you.
AnonD-490063, 16 Feb 2016Is this phone worth buying? * I am asking for an honest opinion from someone who really own... moreyes of course it's worth buying but it depends on what are you looking for exactly, if all you want is style then this one is hard to beat as personally I think it's way better looking than HTC M9, Iphone 6s, LG G4 and even Sony Z5, it also has a very nice camera with a lot of functions that competes with the best on the market and finally the performance is super fast, however, if you are for practicality then this might be another story with no SD card and non removable battery and as I have mentioned bellow the high consumption of the phone which will force you to take a portable power bank with you when you are outdoors for some time
DeVille, 15 Feb 2016Guys, I'm deciding between LG G4 and S6 in Dubai- does S6 come with a fast charger in the box?... moreI was also confused between the two, however, I chose the S6 because first the smaller size fit better in my pocket and secondly the S6 looks really premium compared to the G4, about the fast charger yes the S6 has a very speedy charger that comes standard with it but bare in mind that you will have to used it frequently as the consumption of the phone is very high
