tf70, 24 Dec 2015I have had this phone for six months now, and it is without a doubt the worst smartphone purch... moreI've had mine for a few weeks and I have overheating with battery drain and a loose wiggling home key.
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.

A real wise costumer would choose Sony over Samsung for real-life quality performance of products. And as a Sony costumer, I'm really pissed with the "crappy z5 compact" part. Gosh, Samsung is just about the specs and you are one of those dumb people to take the bait. I think people who had enough of laggy touchwiz will understand what I'm saying.
