problem with AMOLED displays is that they... moreIt is absolutely true
OLED screens turn to shit in 3 years time, depending on usage, even sooner
Ask any longterm samsung tv owner
So S/A/M/OLED screen tech is definitely not the future
LCD IPS proved to be much better and longer lasting technology
Everything's okay except I would have preferred a metal back (watching videos shows that it gets fingerprints galore) and a micro SD card slot. Also, I don't see what's so important about a phone being only a few millimetres thick when you have to sacrifice things such as battery life. I actually use a case on my S4 so that it's easier to hold.

I had Samsung tocco Ultra (S8300, amoled display) just before Samsung's Android era and never got any problem with it. I regret to have given it to someone.

The l... moreAs you have seen those demo units are constantly plugged on A/C and have their display constantly lit. So just like any plasma/oled tv, the screen may take a hit. Even on my Edge led 4K tv, it's recommanded to not let a fixed picture on screen for too long.
A friend of mine has a S4-LTE A and uses it with long screen timeouts (10mins+) and so far has no problems despite i warned him 1 year ago.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2015very funny!
may be you go and buy that yourself, I don't buy that piece of rubbish , why... moreI'm not the one bitching about the price for brand new tech.
It's your problem if you can't admit that tech has a price when it's brand new. It's not a new trend, it has always been that way in every domain.
Now S6's are packed with full of tech, being display, being cpu, being storage (go find equivalent storage in microsd card, they aren't 40$ and most expansive ones don't even match a third of S6 storage speeds), being "premium materials" etc..
I bought one of the first 24" LCD monitor FHD 1000euros when it was just out (9 years ago i think). I bet you would have same argueing. Well, i enjoyed FHD on my computer YEARS before many people. Now how much does such a LCD cost ? 100/120e ? That's the point of this discussion. You want to be cutting edge, you know what to do. You want to complain about prices and look at others with more or less jealousy. You know what to do too.
S5 wasn't 600e whent it got released. but between 649-699.
S2 i don't remember but 600+
So if you aren't satisfied with pricing, go get another job, revise your priorities, choose another phone according to your budget or don't buy a new phone at all. You aren't a child to need that kind of advices?
m86k, 10 Mar 2015Samsung just released a J1 for your needs.very funny!
may be you go and buy that yourself, I don't buy that piece of rubbish , why should I?
for under 600 Euro you can find so many amazing phones, including apple!
so you stick with this piece of crap and I will buy HTC or even Apple and they are just as good if not better than this curved con
I love Samsung, but I feel let down by this rather ridicules prices.
so you go and get yourself that J1 and I stick with so many better phones at the fraction of price
how about it son?

The l... moreI have Samsung Wave s8500 with super Amoled and sufered with screen burn or something like that. It is happened when you too often use the phone to show color White. For example too often open Opera Mini
Please someone come and explain to me why this ridicules price?
why Samsung think he is giving us something which is worth nearly 1000 Euro!!
I always had Samsung, I love Samsung products, but this phone is really offering me nothing which not in the market already!
no SD card, no battery removable , no water proof, HIGH PRICE!
I really don't care bout the SD or Battery but water proof is important if you are paying that sort of money, and Samsung failed, with such a ridicules price they will not shift this, I will not buy it nor the S6 version because they have added nothing special at all.
for the first time I might consider Apple product, you know what you get for money at least,
Samsung need to sell this at 600 Euro max, or he will be out of competition this year
no matter how good this device is, this sort of price from Samsung is a total rip off, as a matter of principle I never spend that sort of money on the smart phone no matter how good it might be. it is not a laptop, it is phone and if Samsung can't manage its prices and telling us they listen to their user then I see Samsung will be in deep trouble in coming years.
they didn't even added the water proof feature! what benefit this phone really introduce than just being curved and being so expensive!???
Samsung will not shift this, the price should come down below £550 to make it a viable competition, if this is a sort of money Samsung is asking I will go and buy apple now, I hate apple but if Samsung abandon their fans by ridicules prices like this I rather to go with a proven concept like apple which will do the job just as good, and it is far cheaper than this phone! why would I pay nearly 1000 euro for 64GB memory? the memory prices have come down, why Samsung think their user are stupid to pay such a ridicules money for this phone and its storage?

problem with AMOLED displays is that they... moreNot this patronising tripe again. The trouble with the internet is we can't see who at work at the other end, this masks the work of pr dept employees whose job it is , is to steer public opinion against thier major competitors. Fact. I myself verifiably still have, an amoled jet, an s1 an s2 , two note 1's, and an s3 in my home. Daughter an s4 and s5, son has had S1, s2, note 1, 2, 3 and now n4..bored yet, 4 mail nephews with s4 and 5's work colleagues with numerous s and notes , and zero burn ins.
I don't doubt for a second the possibility is there but would you be silly enough to leave your telly on , paused on one screen for the length of time it takes your phone to charge..I don't think so , plasmas were still recomended totaly for thier screen quality and the media didn't disproportionately

But it is understandable since those demo units' screen are turn on almost 24/7.
I owned a Note 3 for half a year and it still not suffering from this issue yet.
2600 mah battery..!!!! You got to be kidding me. This phone will not even last for 6 hours for sure...

problem with AMOLED displays is that they suffer from
The "O" in AMOLED
The problem is the “O” in the AMOLED acronym, which
stands for “organic”. The organic compounds used in
AMOLED displays are polymers or copolymers, such as
polyfluorene (PFO) and polyphenylene vinylene (PPV),
both of which degrade with use.
Well, if you leave your
AMOLED screen turned on while charging – which is
one of the options in the Android settings screen –
within a few weeks you’ll see faint images of the icons
appear on your homescreen, with the Android soft keys
burned into your display.
