Are you really butthurt? "My First Language May Not Be Engineering but I do know that this stuff (GS6 and GS6 Edge) will not BEND" and they showed how GS6 kicked IP6 Plus out of the table. 16MP camera with f/1.9 lens kicked out your "iSight". Your "iSight" is "iBLIND" at Night.

Wonderful, we'll get even more detail, better colors, and low-light capabilities with this sensor than we currently do in the S6 I'm willing to wager. This is good, for many years front facing cameras were always neglected and thrown in the same sensor with megapixel counts usually ranging around 2 MP with no adjustments. Now they get as much fine tuning and improvement as rear cameras now.

Really?? Why to develop a camera module, one day after Galaxy s6 press? Make sense to port it on the flagship, not to make it after the flagship!
