    It's not a knock out of the park, but I could go for a 64 gig version with UFS storage, if the battery life and camera quality holds up. The screen, as per Samsung, is sick-gorgeous. Wireless charging and QuickCharge will help on the battery life at least (I keep a Qi plate on my desk at work). And Sammy one-upped HTC with their add-on GearVR headset.

    I'm tempted to wait and see what the LG G4 looks like. But I may actually be interested in this...provided I can throw Nova Launcher on it anyway, I can't stand Samsung's launcher.

    It may, not sure. At least it's easy to charge up, and Qi plates are cheap, $30 gets you one by your desk, one by your favorite chair, and one by your bed. I've seen cupholder Qi docks for around $50, so dump it in there while you drive. Just wish Qi charged faster, I bet the charging speed doesn't apply to wireless charging.

    Looks like they essentially went UltraPixel on the selfie cam, larger pixels, and there's some of that influence on the rear camera too. Can't wait to see some third party reviews of the snappers.

    I have to say, I'm pretty keen on the S6. Never have been a fan of the Galaxy phones but they focused on practical, and good, improvements that most people would use while skipping the 50 million fluffy, redundant, throw in the kitchen sink software stuff they did in the past and made a very nice looking phone.

    I really wanted to say goodbye to Samsung and see if the grass was greener on the other side after using galaxy phones for the last four years however after the extremely underwhelming M9 reveal and what they've shown so far, I'm 90% set on the S6. They really seem to be trying to take their phones to the next level. The Iphone 6 plus comparison stuff though is a bit disappointing and a tad bit unprofessional.

    Well, I'm really digging the Edge version. They sure didn't mention pricing though.

    I'm not jumping back on the Samsung bandwagon until Touchwiz is abolished but I love the S6 design. I'm not worried about a glass back since I use a case and never drop my device. The non-removable battery is great because it ensured Samsung went away from that cheap, creaky plastic cover that the S5 had. SD Cards are great but I prefer using built in memory. I understand why people may be against my compliments but that's my opinion.

    I'll be hanging onto the Turbo. But I have to admit when I saw the S6 I thought I was looking at an iPhone 6 with Samsung branding.

    Love the look, but no SD is a killer for me. And no mention of pricing? Normally that means its over priced.

    I think I finally get why they reversed the task switcher and back buttons, it's to put the back button out of palm-reach when gaming.

    tbh ill admit the s6 and edge trumps the m9 in design but man i wish they would ditch that home button and capacitive keys. go with onscreen ones. still not enough to bring me back to samsung.

    After having the Turbo for a bit, I'm not really worried about the non-removable battery or lack of SD Card as long as they are good storage flavors available. 64gb would be my choice but I'll wait until the price points are revealed.

    Took delivery of my S6 from Vodacom South Africa yesterday. My first white phone(note by choice; no delivery of black phones expected before xmas). Find it fast but cold in the hand. GSM signal reception better than the S4. Voice clarity good
