AnonD-372883, 09 Mar 2015First I have to say that I'm not a Samsung fan, but in this comment I'll stand up for the S6, ... moreA wise comment daniam!
I had already forgotten about microsd bricking.
There was also bricking/corrupting reports with 64gb sandisk into Galaxy S4. It happened to a friend of mine and luckily not to me.
As someone said on sammobile : if people don't realize the tech behind the S6 series and prefer complaining about their microsd slot, it's better for them to not buy a S6. They won't use it efficiently.
First I have to say that I'm not a Samsung fan, but in this comment I'll stand up for the S6, regarding the concerns that some people have about the non-removable battery or the missing microSD card slot.
I owned in the past an S3 but shortly after I moved towards Nexus 4 which I still use today.
I don't plan to upgrade yet because as a smartphone with only 16GB, day by day use (apps, photos and phone calls), still hold up pretty good.
My next choice will be, probably, Asus Zenfone 2 - I really need a dual sim card phone plus the Asus quality and reliability at a fair price compared to Samsung.
For movies or heavy Android gaming I have the nVIDIA Shield tablet.
Back on topic:
My reasons to move away from Samsung in the past were (among others) exactly the ones about that some people are complaining today: the S6 has no microSD card slot nor removable battery.
About the lack of microSD card slot:
My previous S3 bricked a 16GB microSD card (Kingston) after 3 weeks and a 2nd 8GB (Sandisk) after 2 months. I also had the same reports from some of my friends about their microSD slot equipped phones.
Also, if you don't know yet, the microSD cards are NOT officially supported by Google (Android owner). They are considered a security breach. That's why you don't find a microSD card slot in any of their own Nexus product line (phones or tablets).
But for real now! The S6 has up to 128GB. Of course you can get those extra GB for a cheaper price with a microSD card option, but the read/write speed, safety issues and reliability differences between an integrated SSD and an external microSD are pretty important in my oppinion. Plus, if you go for the S6, you consider yourself a premium buyer, right?
About the non-removable battery:
On my previous owned S3 the quality of the removable battery was... well... I guess you know better if you happened to own one. I ended up buying 2 more replacements. Same problems also occurred to most of my friends who owns phones with interchangeable batteries (including S4 and 5)
On my Nexus 4 the non-removable battery is still working like in day one. Same with my friends who owns Nexus 5, 6 or Nokia or other non-remobable battery phone models.
AND NOW, every one here who is worried about non-removable battery should know that the companies use premium builded batteries for their phones if those are not removable.
To be honest, when I bought my Nexus 4 I first had the same worries about the non-removable battery, but after some internet and friends researches I made the step and I had no regrets after.
If you are a Samsung fan, go for it! The battery should perform significantly better compared with the previous models. And the internal SSD is a faster, safer and reliable solution than an external microSD card.
