Let's just hope there's a slimmed down touchwiz onboard and something that makes it unique. Let's be real, we can remember the S3 and the S4 somewhat. Hardly anyone remembers anything about the S5 since it came a few months after the Note 3 and the Note 4 pretty much made it forgettable.

Bette Midler remembers it is IP67 certified.

News about Galaxy S6 is just boring now after the rumor that Sammy is considering buying Blackberry.

Why would you hope there's a slimmed down TW, it's not likely to affect you, seeing your an iphone guy through and through.

This is basically an S5 LTE-A.... except the LTE-A has a higher pixel density and a SD 805...

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs LG G4 vs Sony Xperia Z4 vs HTC One M9.....somebody book a Fatal Four Way for Wrestlemania.

Im sure z4 will be the winner when the battle is which phone has the widest bezel.
(Posts: 230; Member since: 17 Apr 2014)
I think the display should/will be smaller than 5.5". Samsung doesn't want to have their S line competing with the Notes. Probably max screen size of 5.3".
(Posts: 18; Member since: 08 Jan 2015)
Yes because a 5.5inch S6 would infringe on the note 4 since its 5.7, I agree 5.2-5.3 would be good (but I wouldn't buy it anyway) touchwiz no matter how slimmed down is still ugly, nexus 6, moto x for me

Why use the overheating sd810 in the first production at all? Sammy should not use any sd810s until a revision is released. Why put troubled chips in 10% of devices? It ought to be 0%.
(Posts: 805; Member since: 27 Oct 2011)
If the SD 810 is having heating issues and all the top android phones get released with it i dont see any OEM making huge sales. All i see is Apple gaining more iOS users. I will keep my Nexus 6 for 2015 and hope fully Nexus 7 will be as good and big as this one. This is the best Android phone out there.

why would android fans get apple when they would get a free replacement just like bending iphones they just get a replacement not a new os

"TSMC: JP Morgan Sees Little Downside From Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Delay"
J.P. Morgan is most worried that Samsung Electronics (005930.KS/SSNLF) will ditch TSMC in its chip production for the Galaxy S6 and go in-house because of the delay:
We believe SEC is highly likely to adopt its in-house AP (Exynos) and modem for >90% of its Galaxy S6 model (launching in February), a big departure from previous years, when it used Snapdragon for >70% of the volume (see our recent report on the Samsung supply chain). This would be negative for TSMC in 2Q15 and would hurt 20nm utilization somewhat in 2Q15, in our view.

meh, xiaomi note pro have it all and selling 2/3 price.
(Posts: 1578; Member since: 06 Jun 2010)
well you get what you pay for. I have seen xiaomi, and i think their software is horrible, bad batterylife even with large battery capacity.
but that's just me, others may find it decent.
(Posts: 365; Member since: 08 Dec 2010)
What more do they want from screens? The eye can only see so much! It's all just to get a sell.

One thing that I praise Samsung for is keeping the hardware buttons. This is especially important on AMOLED displays, where on-screen buttons can easily cause a lot of burn-in...

phonearena - you very bad?? When "base64" was 64-bit_CPU ? :D "Base64" - this MIME_Base64_encoding ;)

Please, I don't need 2K display! 1080p is good enough.
(Posts: 125; Member since: 06 Mar 2014)
LG and Xiaomi are using the Snapdragon 810 and Samsung cannot.....ahahaha...Samsung please Watch and Learn
(Posts: 1544; Member since: 23 Jan 2014)
LG just want to release a phone, they don't care about quality control. That's why they had a terrible display that couldn't even remain on full brightness for long. G Flex 2 is supposed to be lagging anyway.

Question to ask here is, which chip is more powerful?
(Posts: 320; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
5.5' is too large for a phone. Sorry, Samdung!

Anyone noticed the 4096 :O ... 4GB of ram finally
(Posts: 280; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
That's not 2k; 2048x1152 is 2k. 2560x1440 is, if anything, closer to 3k.
(Posts: 1; Member since: 17 Jan 2015)
whats the point of 64bit on a phone when you have less than 4GB of ram? CAD rendering? lol
User Agent profile for Samsung Galaxy S6 confirms 2K screen and 64-bit processor?
