Samsung just gave us a glimpse on what many future smartphones will look like with this phone. Others will imitate it just like the Note series (LG G3 Stylus, anyone?) . Samsung will refine it and hopefully add back the missing features they omitted in Round 1. We are still in this design's infancy stages. Generation 1, but S6 edge still ahead of its time in design. Samsung lost some marketshare. But a real champion may fall down but gets right back right up after being pushed down closer to the "edge." Fight back, Samsung. Don't let that pretentious fruit company or their pretentious fanbase bring you down. The smarter people all know who the real innovators and real risk-takers are. It is Samsung all along.

For people complaining about the lack of an SD card slot.
They need to have some market segmentation.
The Note Edge half of the missing features people are complaining about.
Due to the nature of an added Micro SD card becoming default store for pictures and videos, filming at 4k becomes a pretty big issue.
Allowing users to put their own cards in, being from a plethora of companies, rated at a range of speeds.. it all adds up to issues.
Giving a large amount of internal storage is in part the solution.
Also, added cards suck juice.
This phone looks like it will be a stamina king!
They have nailed this screen tech, where the Note 4 and Note Edge have shown that crazy high resolution hasn't been a massive battery drain (but can allow OLED to do ridiculous brightness, formerly its one weakness).
If this has less pixels than the Note Edge, all the better for it, and it seemed it was software sorting out the side display as a seperate monitor that caused serious battery discrepencies for Note 4 vs Note Edge.
This has a standard screen resolution. Should be much easier to sort out.
The Mali graphics chip can sip power.
Hopefully good aerial setup will keep its power effective,.. lollipop should help it become a bit more power efficient as well, certainly more and more as apps are written for ART runtime, yes?
Qi charging can lead to a little bit of power leakage, but on the whole this phone should show some crazy standby times!
A non removable battery, so long as looked after (not left in hot cars all day, and recharged, ideally around the 20% mark, should last for years before it loses a noticable amount of charge anyway.
3DS and Vitas have non removable batteries and are designed for many years of usage,.. most people rotate their phones on to a relative after two years anyhow..
There is no need for 64bit.. it doesn't bring anything meaningful to the table in terms of usability.
Most phones nowadays have more power than we need them to have. We don't need 3GB of ram, and Android just caches stuff to fill up 2GB to make things zippier for when we do choose to use them.
The Note Edge will remain the choice for people NEEDING removable parts at a 'user' level, whilst offering a few extra features. Samsung are playing with their market segmentation.. the only thing I see as them doing wrong with this phone was removing Ingress Protection. Once we users have a feature, we generally don't like giving it up. This may lead to some confusion as to what the S line represents, if not an amalgamation of the best tech in the tiniest body.
i would strongly advise making this s6 with removable batterty or u r limiting this phone to the levels of the apple phones and samsung is a far better level them that.
The Best Features
1. 2nd Generation Fingerprint scanner is very good like the scanner in Iphone 5,6 and 6+.
2. 3GB RAM
3. The same camera of the Galaxy Note 4 is used in this phone which was regarded the best camera experience by many people.
4. 3.5mm jack placed on the bottom like the the Iphone.
5. Has Samsung's own chipset that is Exynos 7420 which is more efficient and faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
6. Has an upgraded resolution
7. Very good metal finish at the back instead of the band-aid like rubber finish
The Worst Features
1. Has a small battery ( 2600mAH )
2. Has 2K dislpay which will suck the battery very fast
3. Not IP58 or IP568 certified that is it is not waterproof
4. No MicroSD slot
5. Not Removable Battery
AnonD-241071, 04 Mar 2015I think we now need to blast others who copy... shall we blast toshiba for making rectangular ... moreExactly, haters have to find a reason anyway for doing their job.
Samsung could release any shape of phone, they would be bashed at.
Now, the only thing that will calm those waves of trolls/crabs/haters will be the first weeks of sales of S6 when the news will keep coming about its success. We will see such a turnover here in comments section.
