[deleted post]It's S6 forum! No need to advertise FAKE facts about other phones! The S6 can do all that and much better than the phone you mentioned!
Samsung have some build quality issues and customer services are appalling. You cannot beat people up and have them say I love you. Samsung need to grow up and think long term and stop pretending to get better. Battery life is poor in their phones as well which is partly poor design, but mainly down to the chronic amount of bloatware that is running all the time, regardless of the fact that most of it is pants and nobody wants it. If we were allowed to dump a lot of the bloatware, without rooting a phone and thereby negating the warranty, life would be a lot easier for Samsung and for us the customers. Samsung are Arrogant and could do a lot better, but they do not use common sense.
Samsung just aren't quality anymore.... Get Asus for good quality with alot of features and performance. Good Models include Asus Zenfone 2
Hi I wan't to share my experience about the galaxy s6 this is a normal commennt from a normale user I switched from nokia 710 windows phone to the galaxy s6 cause of the price drop , first It's an amazing phone with a super camera especialy in low light people are complaining about the fact that they found Isocell camera instead of sony sensor but I can confirm that the Isocel (wish I have) perform as well as the sony even better in good light conditions , performance are amazing The most of apps in the app store can't take advntage of this processor I hope it will in the future , The Display Is the best in market comparing to s5 The s6 have more natural colours and more pixels of course , The phone is beautiful , well crafted . About heatind I didn't face any heating problem the phone get warm when charging it but it's normal cause of Fast charging ( It charche in 1h:30 min Maximum maybe 60% faster than an Iphone ) comparing the exynos to qualacomm or Nvidia tegra ( I was an old htc one X user ) This phone don't heat a lot but after a long time of playing heavy games the SIM slot get hot sometimes , Thnaks to the glass and aluminium the heat disipation make the phone colder in a little bit time , No phone is perfect i miss the removable battry but the design let me forget about it there is 128 gb model so no complaining about SD card the HOME BUTTON when i oppened the phone for the first time this button made me out of me becaus it' big and you must press at the middle of this think to get back home after 3 days of using it i don't complain about it anymore , The battery : It's a huge mess It can hold the day not more 4h screen on time I am coming from a nokia 2 Days of battery are now just a dream . It's all about the phone I recommend especialy the price dropped now . Sorry about my english I repeat "but" a lot XD

Sam, 02 Jan 2016Z3 don't have OIS .. and I have heard there is some heating issues what about yours ?Every phone heats due heavy gaming or video recording. I use it for Internet and my z3 don't heat at all. Also battery life is very good. Works very smooth, no lag. For camera I can say that focusing is a bit slow but you can capture amazing pictures. Pictures will be natural and much detailed. I'm extremely satisfied. Also inserted 128GB micro SD card...

Samsung quality control is non existent. A good spec phone with poor quality components. The Last Samsung for me too after 10 years of blindly buying the brand and being impressed previously.
The S6 is not exactly cheap either.
Undecided, 20 Dec 2015Guys I finally made my choice (Dilemma between S6 or Z5c).
Just closed my 1st week with Sam... moreSorry dude, I also got the S6 and was not impressed. My home key got wiggly and loose in 3 days, and my CPU Now overheats reaching 70deg Celsius at times. Excellent specs with poor quality.
I also miss the SD slot - it's so much easier to set up the phone when you get it. I will be giving in mine for repair / replacement. But I won't be buying another Samsung for sure.
Alky, 29 Dec 2015LG G4 or samsung S6 which is the better phone?The S6 is the better phone, but Samsung quality is quite poor nowadays. Besides the fingerprint sensor, there's no reason to buy the S6.
I've had CPU heating problems, home button came loose in 3 days, headphones quality was better in the S4. So although the design and specs are good, the actual product might not be...
LG is also cheaper and you can use SD card. Camera in Samsung - they are not using Sony sensors anymore, but their own in house Isocell sensor, so LG camera will be just as good if not better.
Your choice at the end of the day..

I wonder whether the $30 million lawsuit they lost against iPhone has anything to do with it...
Also bought S6, should have bought another brand. Cheaper as well plus takes memory card.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 2016I recommend you to buy Sony phone. Mine is black Z3.I agree. Read my other post as well.
S6. Great phone. Poor quality. Earphones are not even as good as S4 mini, and S6 is supposed to be a flagship handset. Phone CPU overheats. Home button gets loose after a few days. Battery not so good. It's like a lucky packet. Samsung quality used to be good, not any more.
Samsung S6. In a nutshell, a phone with excellent specs and poor quality control. Just like all Samsung mass produced items nowadays.
My home key started wiggling and rattling after 3 days, the Phone CPU heats up to 72°C whilst charging and use.
The only reason I buy Samsung is for the features and screen, but phones like the A series are still lacking. A non Flagship Samsung won't give you the great user experience like before.
Alternatives are Huawei Mate S,
LG G4, Sony (if only they looked better). The Mate S launched a week after I got my Samsung S6, or I would have taken that.
The Huawei Mate S even looks better and more modern,has a fingerprint scanner and Amoled Display,and uses a Sony camera sensor. So there's no reason to buy a S6 anymore. And Samsung has quietly started using their own camera sensors instead of the superior Sony ones, but when they supply a test unit for review, those units have a Sony Sensor. So everyone reads the review and goes to buy a Samsung.
This is the last Samsung I will buy after only using Samsung phones for 10 years. From days of the E600 clam type. Goodbye SAMSUNG.
