As for the SD card, with the Cloud Service offered with the phone and many other services such as DropBox, you shouldn't make this the reason you don't get a phone you like.
There's always wild rumors about Galaxy phones but all I care is that the rumours of SD slot and removable battery are true because I've got money burning a hole in my pocket and if the S6 Active doesn't have these I have no choice but to go to another manufacturer, which is surprisingly difficult since premium phones like the S5 that have all the features just aren't made anymore.
Well they are but they're too big like with the Galaxy Note and LG G4.
samsung should not miss anything
About card slot upto 128gb
fastest class of edge and gprs like it was on the time of s3
Stereo FM radio with RDS
these are some specification which samsung is ignoring
they should remeber about s3 populirity beacuse of including these all types of specification
*battery issue is also a big issue which we users are facing
And last samsung should add also tv to all it's upcoming s series from s7
please think on my concept samsung i like your smartphones very much

yuoliuol, 28 Apr 2015no memory and battery so no use to buy this phoneI left iPhone for Samsung because of the Memory card slot and the removable battery option, if Samsung now wants to be iphonised, then I will surely say goodbye to Samsung. They have to be careful, they might lose many who moved from Apple. Some might choose Sony or Htc or even move back to Apple.
I agree with Zebede. They do appear to have mostly just copied the specs from the S6. All leaks I've read mention that the S6 active will have a memory card slot. The IP67 and 3500 mah battery are consistent with the leaks, but some of the information appears to be inaccurate. Also, no word yet whether the battery is removable or what the phone's case will be made of (poly-carbonate or aluminum. Poly-carbonate please for crystal clear reception and removable battery).
yuoliuol, 28 Apr 2015no memory and battery so no use to buy this phoneThis is bad review. Some leaks said that it will have memory card slot and that the battery will be 3300-3500 compared to S6's 2550... But that's the leaks, and here they just copied the S6's info and paste it on S6 Active. Google S6 Active leaks and you will find more reliable information
samsung handset dont have any smsrt phones but have the high rates ..............................
ChuyenZ, 27 Mar 2015Hi guys,What's the disadvantages of non removable battery?the disadvantage of a removable battery is it will shut off whet it get off. simple as that.
JB-Villuminati, 26 Mar 2015Big Phone Big Specs No Battery Backup Not Cool!yeah dude I agree with you :-)
malakt, 16 Apr 2015The most important thing that does not have plastici wish it still was poly-carbonate, impact resistance with bounce is way better than none and the flex that results in aluminum. it's a more expensive material but far from better or more durable.
with that kind of battery and IP it would be "next" flagship... only add sd slot...
If the S6 Active comes to Verizon then I will probably get it. Water resistance is something I absolutely insist on since I live in Oregon (rains a lot).
Also very happy to hear the S6 Actives' battery will be 37% bigger (3500 mah vs 2550 mah)! Speaking of battery, I wish that Samsung hadn't increased the pixels in their display. The S5's 2.1 million pixels (1080 x 1920) in a 5.1" screen was plenty! I don't understand why they increased their pixels by 78% (1440 x 2560 = 3.7 million pixels!) when I've read in comments and reviews that the difference in clarity is barely noticeable even when you look for it. Seems a huge waste of battery resources to power so many pixels in such a small computer. Thankfully, Samsung is maximizing their battery and performance through an extremely efficient 14 nm chipset (Exynos 7420), Power Saving Mode and Ultra Power Saving Mode user options, and getting rid of a lot of the unnecessary preinstalled software (less background activity means less power wasted). Additionally Samsung has started to mass produce their new ePop techology which will further increase their battery (and internal space) efficiency in future phones.
Using a detailed review source (http://www.notebookcheck.net) I've found to be very accurate in the past I compared the S6 with the older S5. I was happy to see that the S6 made some really great improvements to its' display (especially brightness and outdoor usability), camera (especially low light condition shots), and has made the virtual keyboard and general layout much easier and intuitive to use. The lightning fast performance was also impressive. I am unhappy, however, that the S6 telephone quality is not as crystal clear as the S5 (plastic does not interfere with radio signals unlike metal so this result is not unexpected), the audio is not nearly as precise and impressive, and the battery is not removable (after a couple years of use or in case the S6 freezes and refuses to shut down). I am hoping the S6 Active reverts back to strong plastic as perfect reception is more important to me than perfect performance (as metal provides much better heat conductivity) and the much greater potential for a removable battery is a great added bonus, but if not I still feel the S6 Active will likely be the best option for my first smartphone.
On a much lesser note, I am hoping Samsung can still support UFS memory in the S6 active as it is more efficient (and faster), but I fear by supporting microSD card technology, they will be forced to abandon UFS in the S6 Active. Personally I can't see why I would need more than the 32 GB storage in the base S6 Active model, but I can understand why many people would want or even demand this basic feature, and personally losing UFS would not be a deal breaker for me.
Will this really happen? If yes I'm all for it. It's only a question of WHEN?!!!?!?!?!?!!!
@Arabian_Knight All Samsung devices use the Hold Power, Volume Up and Home Button simultaneously to reboot the phone into Recovery Mode. From there you simply pick reboot in standard mode!
What's so hard about that? lol... and you can do that if it has removable batteries or not. In fact near all manufacturers copied that method from older Samsung devices with out removable batteries!
