Is you taking out your battery really that freakin important? No. It's not. Keep yourself with a lower quality phone then, best of luck once the s5 starts becoming crappy with updated software in the future.
Please Samsung we just ask for memory slot back and better battery life!
360_optix, 10 Jan 2016Non removable battery? Again?! Why?!! Really, Id like to know what the non-corporate benefits... moreCos, it will reduce battery casing , (more space for bigger battery or can make phone thinner), reduce contact points, and in reality more than 80% of users dont change battery. Average use of smart phone is only 1.5 to 2 years and original battery will last for that duration.
Non removable battery? Again?! Why?!!
Really, Id like to know what the non-corporate benefits are of not having the option. Thats why I have an S5 and wont be changing to another SG any time soon by looks
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2016Very true and agree with you. First world country don't need radio in smartphone. They are so ... moreYou just don't get it do you?
A smartphone is there to replace everything so you carry 1 device that does everything, and yeah maybe people don't use radios much but it still should be included especially when the Galaxy S7 will have the FM tuner hardware built in just as every previous Galaxy S has but Samsung disabled them in the firmware at the request of the cell networks as they want to make you use Internet radio they can charge data costs for instead of just having a free radio.
Also in some countries mobile internet is still insanely expensive and limited so radio still gets used.
Card slot, MHL support, wireless console controller support !! ALL WHAT I'M ASKING TO BE IN MY NEXT GALAXY !! don't fail me like the S6 plz :(
alma, 08 Jan 2016zpreia z5 has not IRDA - it's dealbreaker. nobody uses FM radio in 1st world. s7 is the futureVery true and agree with you. First world country don't need radio in smartphone. They are so rich that they could just buy a real radio instead. Why depend on smartphone for that? Who buy smartphone just to listen to radio? There are so many nice radio less than $10-20 out there. Have better reception too.
Sven, 09 Jan 2016we want Fm radio and SD slot. not copy of iphonewho wants fm radio on a phone? lol theres apps if that's the main thing you want.
david000012, 09 Jan 2016i am sick of sd card and pulling battery. one piece is the best. quick charge. the handy pho... moreThere's plenty other phones if you want an iPhone replica(like an iPhone) but some of us actually want and need these features.
i am sick of sd card and pulling battery. one piece is the best. quick charge.
the handy phone need power, clear and simple to used. people very lazy today.i am not work for the phone. I need the phone work for me. give me what i want.
laptop can download movie play through hard disk. mac air 12 inch or mac book is the best for lazy laying one the bed browsing internet.
cell phone can do it all, but only when you need. cell phone is the best for chat online. and listening to music.
32gb still enough music to enjoy.
for expert, please purchase 128gb version. soon the future phone will have 254gb too.
with me, the phone is complete one piece powerful is the best. its the best for sell too
alma, 08 Jan 2016zpreia z5 has not IRDA - it's dealbreaker. nobody uses FM radio in 1st world. s7 is the futureIt's supposed to be a smartphone so it's dumb to remove the radio as an extra feature for those occasional times it's needed when every Galaxy S has always had a built in FM tuner chip but Samsung always disables it.
klajdi3, 08 Jan 2016I love samsung mobile s series but if s7 will not have sd card . removable battery . fm radio.... morezpreia z5 has not IRDA - it's dealbreaker. nobody uses FM radio in 1st world. s7 is the future
I love samsung mobile s series but if s7 will not have sd card . removable battery . fm radio.and waterproof i will buy sony zperia z5 premium. I waiting for s7 if not bye bye samsung
No sd card slot. No waterproof. No fm radio . No better batery ? Samsung will lost the battle with sony xperia . This is sure
Also Samsung Pay will become avalible to the UK when the S7 is relased, they are leaving it so, it all comes avalible at the same time as the new Flagship device enters the market.
Just been talking to someone that works for samsung, she couldn't tell me too much as you could imagine, but from what I have asked her about the rumours i have seen on here, it matches up. She told me the SD card slot is coming back aswell as the water proofing. She also told me that there will only be 2 variants- well she actually said ' I have only seen 2', as is has been rumoured that there is a third being the 6". I did ask about the camera moving from the 16 megapixel to the new 12 megapixel Britecell, she just said that the camera is not all about pixels and its too do with the lenses, so to me that does sound like they will be making the move to the Britecell sensor. Also she confirmed they will be annoced ahead on MWC and they will be up for sale at the end of Feburary in selected markets and some begining of March.
