Can someone tell me what is the point in having a pro mode if controls such as shutter speed, sharpness and things are missing? Pointless.

As expected, Broadcom’s BCM4773 chip improves power efficiency on the Galaxy S6

On top of Samsungs class leading battery efficiency tech, it also has Class leading CPU and Memory:

S6 & S6 Edge's memory speeds obliterate other
flagships

Despite having to run a 2K display in the S6/S6Edge the Exynos 7420 either beats or equals the Snapdragon 810 that is running a lower HD1080 display in the HTC One M9:

Samsung have another class leading phone and CPU, its like the Galaxy S2 and Exynos4210 days again

Can't wait for the Note 5 now!

Told you guys internal memory is ALWAYS faster - especially with DDR4 than external/MicroSD cards.

Nobody argued with you on that though. Samsung could have put the fast memory and still put a memory card slot for those who want it.

I've known Internal Memory is faster since I had a SE W900i, I have always preferred to store Movies, Video Recordings and Apps internally, while keeping back ups, Documents and Music external.

True nobody argued I know ... we're not here for that at any rate right?

Regarding external memory for media ... most documents are sourced outside of the phone (for me anyway), while media (pictures, movies, video recordings, and apps) are sourced by the phone.

However:
Apps are from store catalog (Android/iOS - began this way so you'll not loose anything: Android does have a device:app comparity issue though; arrgh!)
Music - normally for youth is streamed (they don't get the concept of fully owning the content/us old guys quite the opposite perception, lol). I'm guessing the music you owned is sourced and still present in it's entirety on the PC.

So the only backups you require are pictures/video taken by the phone ... everything else - including wallpapers are easily grabbed. If not then backup to iCloud, One Drive, Evernote, OneNote, Dropbox, Box.net ... etc etc.

All taken care of plus is readily accessible while completely mobile over WiFi or carrier network. If the phone is LOST, Stolen or completely crushed or dropped down some building vent through the crates .. no MicroSD card is going to help you anyway

The problem is the cost of the 128 gb internal memory - a 128 gb card is now around £60 online. So of the difference in price between the 32 gb and 128 gb is this then it is OK. If it a lot more than of course people won't be happy. And for people that upgrade often (like me ) you but the 128 gb once and then use it in your new phone as well - with samsung new approach you have to pay extra for 128 gb memory everyone you upgrade ?

I see that the S6 has gone down the iPhone route in terms of no expandable storage and the truth is that you can complain as much as you like but iPhone sales only get stronger despite Apple never implementing expandable storage. If that's the case then why should Samsung bother with a card slot? They've actually made the phone look high end and it has much better materials. Power users probably feel hard done by but the average user will like this, the reality is that very few people would even carry extra memory cards and actually do the swap. Benchmark tests are good so I can imagine that this will be the top choice Android flagship.

I have no doubt that many people (majority ) don't care about the memory card - I do though and given the choice I would choose one with memory card

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


Thanks...
Exactly what I thought... I think there's little, if any, advantage to it for now. I believe there's not that many 64-bit apps out there at the moment.

I can probably accept the lack of a card, and the non-removable battery, been using an iPhone 6 for the last couple of months now, so Im used to that. But I cant somehow get around the idea that it isn't waterproof. My s5 had gone swimming in the pool a couple of times already, sometimes with me and sometimes without me ...and throughout those times, it remained unharmed. I grew to depend on its waterproofing... but now with the s6, I dont know.

If I switch to an S6 now, I'd have 2 non-waterproof phones.... or alternatively, maybe I could wait for the iphone 7 (which is rumored to be waterproof) then thats the time I'd get the s6?


cheers!
