Samsung Galaxy S6 Preview Thread (was "Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge pre-order page up.")

Surprised that no one has mentioned their views on the new S6 and S6 Edge that were unveiled today at MWC Barcelona.

 

Guess I'll start.

I like everything about the new devices except that

1-There is no sd card slot. 

2-The headphone jack is on the bottom

3-Non-Removable battery (which helps when one needs to pull the battery)

4-Glass back. 

 

I have a feeling that the Note Series will follow the same path.

I wonder about sprint carrier aggreation on this phone .

Me too. Hopefully it won't be like the S4 was and miss out on the latest and greatest Sprint network technology until 6 months later.

Well, the Note Edge has 2 carrier CA on Band 41, so the S6 & S6 Edge should have that as a minimum.

The S6 uses a processor that isn't found in any other phone.. Their own Exynos. So who knows what it will support.

The Verizon G920V, which is one of the 2, supports CA. My guess is the US variants are getting Snapdragons again.

Still don't like the look of touchwiz but I am definitely feeling the s6 edge no doubt so with that I will probably be getting one.  It looks too cool to not own even with horrible touchwiz.  I just hope the battery life is good and the camera is good and I hope they don't ask too much of a premium.  At the most I am willing to spend an additional premium fee of $150, anything more and I don't think I will pull the trigger.

Do you have an upgrade available? Best buy always has great offers for the Samsung devices.

My wife will likely end up with this. She can seriously destroy a phone (went through 4 HTC's in a year) so I hope spigen or otterbox can make a good case. I'd like for her to get the edge version but she's not sure it will hold up to her purse and two toddlers.

Those 4 HTC's were destroyed in every which way too...water damage, thrown from top of stairs, dropped/thrown on the ground. Now she has had an S3 with an otterbox case for 2 years! I'm seriously proud.

She should really be more careful with her phones.  :blink:

I was expecting an S6 announcement soon and was ready to purchase, yet the industry continues to disappoint me.

What didn't you like?  The removeable battery/no sd card?

I am completely in agreement with you - seems the only options for next gen with a possible removeable battery will be the G4, but that comes out in July or so.  I was really hyped for the HTC One M9 but it's not much different from my M8 but Samsung seems ot have won me over because back cover/sd slot is not a deal breaker for me.  But I do understand your disappointment.

@ascertion and the lack of waterproofing and the fact that the phone actually has less battery than before and...

True, the battery has less capacity, but the screen technology and chipset power consumption has been vastly improved.  I wouldn't be surprised if the GS6 has better battery than the GS5.

Let's see when these phones reach the FCC, and if it will support 2 or 3 sprint carrier aggregations. I am sure it will support two, but not out the box(firmware)

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
