Good looking phone but the lack of micr sd card is a big no for me. If I was buying a normal sized phone I would go for Sony or HTC

Easily the best looking Galaxy to date but as aussieland1 said no Micro SD card slot would be a biggy for me. Expandable memory is so cheap now and I have a 64GB card in my Z3 with only 8GB spare so I'd need the 128GB version going forward but that would come at a big premium. I can get a 128GB SD card for about £55 online which will be a far cheaper option.

And to add to the above the rrp is not promising at all

The phone would have to be really good ! Still first signs are that Samsung made good efforts with Touchwiz and hopefully the camera will be quote good. It will be interesting to see the reviews

I am so disappointed. Yes, its a pretty phone, but the battery has been downsized and MicroSD removed. The build materials sound great but they have gone back in terms of no Water or Dust proofing.

I hope the Note 5 doesn't go the same route or I'm done with Samsung.

That's exactly what I thought ☺

Altough I wouldn't buy it I am curious to read about the performance and the improved touchwiz

The camera samples look promising leta hope they are good in real life too

Hopefully Samsung has done some proper testing regarding screen resolution, Exynos chip 14 nm and the battery. If it powers the phone through a day of medium to heavy usage then it is good enough for me. The lack of scdard will according to Samsung make the phone faster and cause less lagging. I have always been a fan of sd-card support but it is no dealbreaker as long as it supports usb-on-the-go.

I really like the designs of the S6 and S6 Edge. OIS, f1,9, wireless charging, better finger scanner, lighter TW, better loudspeaker, 3 G ram, yes please 😊

HTC one m8 had sd card and it is considered one of the smoothest android phone so I don't buy their excuse . I don't dispute that it won't be a big deal for many people - it certainly is for me though and I am hoping note series won't follow the same path (I prefer a slightly thicker phone with sd card )

I agree that the phone is impressive other than that.

My only other criticism is the similarity with iphone 6 (the bottom bit for example). Kinda wish Samsung designed the speaker grill different or made the bottom a bit more distinctive . Still I am sure plenty of people will accuse it if being a copycat
