I also dislike the step back to microusb 2.0 port from S5:
Now that there's no microsd card, there will be more transferts to do for loading or unloading contents.
Especially on 32gb versions.
For me, the real bad points of S6 series are :
-lack of microsd slot even for a 128gb
it's always good to have a second memory space for choice.
Chinese manufacturers offers now both microsd+sim on same tray. Samsung could have done same or find another place in the phone to add it.
-16MP camera, even if it's the best for lowlight.
many S5 owners won't upgrade because, camera is "basically equal". Even if we know that pixels are not the only proof of quality. But by judging with grain on photos, we can confirm rumors that it's indeed a Sony sensor which always do that. Samsung's don't do that (check S2 and S5 photos).
For battery, it's just a nerdy/noob excuse. Many phones don't have removable battery and owners are not crying about them all day long like we see here. It certainly may be useful in some cases, but for most of people (including me), i never remove battery excepted when i need to test another sim card or remove my microsd from S5 for example.. On my other phones, i don't feel the need to remove battery too. There's also a safety on most of those phones in case of serious hanging like a 10sec power pressing for forced reboot/shutdown, or another combination while plugging on usb to get it safely started.
Oh my good...colour caller/side notification ? Have you seen/met, anyone who puts an aprox. 1000 euro phone whit its face down on a table ?
Ethos-Evoss, 01 Mar 2015yeah but why ppl are more interested in 6 there is 94% popularity and on this one not even 30%My wild guess is that people who didn't buy a S5 and even S4 are drooling on S6.
People liking real design or having already S5 are more looking at S6 Edge : i fit in this category, there's no point for me looking at the basic S6.
Some people will say that it's ok not to have an sdcard slot because they can just sync the files to cloud or pc and something like that...what they didn't know that those with sdcards are the ones with tonnes of HD movies to store which can be 3-4GB of data per movie...nobody wants to sync such big data every time....and as for the non-removable battery, Android troubleshooters will have headaches as sometimes a hard reset will NOT work if the phone blackout or anything. With removable battery, it will save the time and trouble going to the painful service center...
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015when this hits the market, Many people are going to complain about the s6 edge constantly open... moreWhat r u talking about looks like u never own edge phones. I have note edge and im right handed, i never had problems with that and i notice the curve edge on the side, if u r touching the bottom part it won't respond...
when this hits the market, Many people are going to complain about the s6 edge constantly opening applications by accident while holding the phone in their hands, since you got rows of apps touch buttons on each side !!!
Looks like one of the best and most gorgeous phone ever for me. I dont care about fixed battery, I never had to purchase a new battery for any of y mobile phones, why should I care? 64 GB seems to be fair enough for me, I don't neither care about the size of storage since you can upload to the cloud or synchronize with your external storage (eg pc). the curved edge is so nice. I was always for Samsung due to the menu and back buttons which are not in the screen but just next to the home button. I hate this on the HTc or LG, or even the Sony Xperia,since those buttons are on the screen and it is very annoying to use this. One of the biggest reason why I hate Iphone is that they even do not have this anywhere... you have to find it out yourself per application how to to back or open the menu.
Whatever, let me be clear this Samsung S6 is definitely the most gorgeous and best phone ever... I have watched the live stream event of SAmsung and the only point that me disappointed was that I had to wait until 10th of APril before I can purchase it... LOVE SAMSUNG S6 EDGE.... I hope i will feel the same when I see it for real...
saeid92, 01 Mar 2015Better than Galaxy S6yeah but why ppl are more interested in 6 there is 94% popularity and on this one not even 30%
I hate when a company try to do the same thinks, samsung s6 is just a cooy of the iphone 6 is just the same .... I get disappointed, samsung rip..😞
Is that phone have a 1440x2560 screen? It should be wider than standard quadHD because of its edges. It should have a resolution of 1600x2560 like note edge.
Now, let's be honest unless you're an audiophile the lack of SD card shouldn't be that of a problem if you have the 64 or 128 GB model, however, knowing Samsung (from past experiences) what really should concern the costumer is the fact that you'll never see the 64 and 128 GB models. So you'll end up with a 32 GB model (Because it's the only model you'll see being sold)with usable internal memory of 20 GB aprox.
Sorry to say but samsung could have done better...as far as pics r concerned the design doesn't seems any good to me...moreover Non-removable battery and No sd card r the steps that will contribute to dig samsung's grave :(
best smartphone of 2015 awesome phone with awesome specs n design... but could have done better with battery
