Word has it that my local Samsung Mobile rep has said that the S6 will only come with a 12 month manufacturers warranty the same as Apple. I'm not sure how other regions work but here in the UK all mobile phones except iphones come with a 24 month manufacturers warranty. Not great news if true if you planned on getting it on a contract plan.
I'm so happy 'cause today

Oh wow, S6 sucks terribly. Small battery (2550 mAh), unnecessary large screen resolution (QHD, with this small battery it will be a disaster ) No waterproofing, no microSD, no radio. Is this 2015 or 2013? I'm confused. I'm glad I got my Z3, looks like smartphone market is going backwards, sad sight.

You know what is hilarious ... and astute at the same time? Over from Macrumors.com (obviously an apple fan site) ... bare with me on this ...

Samsung Pay
3 colors, gold, silver, black
Non removable battery
No micro SD slot
Similar hardware design
Similar storage options

Welcome to the Samsung iPhone S6.
Manufactured in Korea, designed by Apple in California.

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?! They didn't even TRY to come up with something unique!!

Samsung is truly gunning for Apple's sales vs their lack of sales for 3 quarters now ... their going not for MarketShare but purely MINDSHARE!

Walk up to vendor pay terminal or checkout ...

Do you have Apple Pay ...
Do you have Samsung Pay ....

See what's happening here? Their selling and now you're buying the BRAND exclusively.

That said the Galaxy 6 does look VERY beautiful. HTC had a chance to do something great with the M9 and dropped it worse than Apple ever has. Pathetic really ... like Blackberry is now doing (FINALLY) is what HTC should ... consider outsourcing EVERYTHING they do to other platforms ... and drop the hardware!

Beautiful implementation on the front Glass for privacy it looks like.

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


Honestly ... consider the following:
Lower battery size ... lowest lithography of a mobile CPU and how powerful and power efficent it is ...
64bit and 14NM ... 14 Nanometers!!! the nearest is 21!

Internal storage up to 128GB like the iPhone 6/6Plus ... enough (along with Box/DropBox/OneDrive) you'll be just fine with all those HDR Full Hi Def 4K videos!

Internal storage is always faster than external, and it's DDR4! You'll have to try it first hand!

Don't worry about their OS overlay .... looks like a LOT of that Samsung S-This and S-That and S-Who and S-When and S-WTF crap is GONE!! PERMANENTLY! Thank goodness!

I think with using it ... along with the cases ... you may opt for this or the Edge with 128GB storage.

Dust/Water proofing ... unless you take LOTS of pictures and video underwater (holding your breath for a 20% of them) I'm sure you'll not think of this after a months.

I also think the CPU being 14nm will compensate for the smaller battery . That being said the screen being qhd might drain the battery much more than a fhs would (not sure of the advantage of a qhd over fhd on such a small screen ? )

Unless you need a 64bit CPU in your life I'd rather get the the Note 4 over the S6 any day.

So you didn't notice the more efficient 14nm cpu consuming less power, or the DDR4 RAM/Storage ... or that its using a quad mobile GPU? huh, thought you guys where specs guys? Oh way ... wireless payments and charging irregardless of standard?

Personally I'll hold this crap Z30 until it dies out (didn't cost me a cent ) until the iPhone 6 128GB drops in price or the newer model really does something great.

All I know is there is going to be a HUGE market for insuring cellphones coming this summer .... HUGE!

The more efficient 14nm cpu in this case is being coupled with a smaller battery resulting in the same battery life with Note 4 or even less . The wireless payments will only help when and if Samsung pay ever takes off

This only leaves the faster ram (dd4) which is good to have no doubt and faster internal memory which again is accompanied by no microsd meaning that you might have to pay premium price if you want 128 gb (when a 128 gb card costs something like 60£ online)

IMO S6 is a good upgrade coming from s5 or older devices but not note 4

We will see just how much more efficient the CPU is once you get Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Google Chrome going, the Note series phones with their huge batteries seem to handle such heavy apps with greater efficiency than the following S Model e.g. Note 2 gave better battery than the S4, Note 3 better than the S5 and I can bet the Note 4 will give better than the S6.
