    The S5 had demo removable battery and an SD card slot and nobody bought it in the numbers that Samsung would have liked in fact it was their biggest flop. So having a removable battery and SD card didn't do it for them because nobody cared. When looking at the plastic cheap junk people are looking at the S6 now. Move on or be left behind SD card slots and removable battery are old more and more manufactures just won't be including it

    I don't want this to be true but, unfortunately, I fear it is. I'll just be holding onto my current phones a bit longer than I had expected.

    Where are these price comparisons coming from? Or are they just rumors/speculations?
    Others have posted links on this forum. I'm not tech savvy enough to do that myself.

    this thread has blown up, interesting to see things from everyone else's point of view i hadn't checked out much of the m9 before i posted this but i stand by the fact that i believe this will be my choice of flagship for the year, aside from whatever they end up doing with the note 5 as i've really been enjoying my note 4, tv screen and all

    I did see the news that Apple passed Samsung in sales for the 4th Qtr of 2014 for the 1st time since 2011. But for all of 2014 Samsung held a very commanding lead.

    I have always been a fan of iPhones, but Samsung may just dominate the mobile market this year.

    It looks like they already are. I think it was like 197 million iPhones vs over 300 million for Samsung. (for 2014)

    I have always thought android phones are always so ugly compared to iPhones. This iteration of Galaxy S line makes me think the opposite of that!

    I think Samsung tried harder this time and I hope they keep up the effort.

    I agree. They tried to listen to what the masses wanted. People are so po'd about removal batteries and sd slots that they aren't seeing that Samsung tried to bring something new. I'm not excited about losing the SD card option, but I respect what they did.

    People hate too much on a non-removable battery. It's not that hard to prepare to have alternate power source if you think you'll need it.

    Keep it simple....
    Previous poster.made a great.point though. If you get phone wet you can save it by quickly removing battery and toss it in bag of rice. If you cannot remove battery it is toast

    I have a note 3 and had no interest in a note 4 but if note 5 has no sd card I will buy a note 4.

    That is true but with the S6 not having IP67, it's gonna be toast anyway.

    To me, that would be shame on me for getting the phone wet and an insurance claim. It'd also be the very last time such a thing would ever happen to me I believe.

    I could never see the kind of hardware-software integration before from Android phones. I am hopeful that the s6 might change all of that this year

    It won't be integrated as well as iPhones, so don't expect anything on that level.

    I know, but it's finally baked up Samsung super CPU + its software improvement. Don't you feel something good is coming for us? The galaxy s6 is much faster.

    I'll have to agree with most that the S6 is much better looking. In the past, it was a hard thing for me to except that Samsung's "flagship" phone was made out of plastic.

    I'll have to disagree. There's lots of android "flagship" phones out now. I might be a little biased, but I think my Moto X-2 is very attractive & functional. Fast, 1080p screen, semi-waterproof with probably the best speakerphone on the market (a deal breaker for me). On a side note..... I think the real reason that Apple outsold Samsung in the 4th Qtr of 2014 is because most companies introduce their new phones in Sept\Oct for the next year while Samsung waits till spring (April).

    or a year or two down the road you want to sell your phone, and the battery can't hold a charge and you lose $200-300.
    or you could just sell it in a year when the S7 comes out and the battery is still perfect.

    or when you need to pop in a 10000mAh battery for a long trip with now power supply.

    or you could just buy an external battery pack for extended trips that works for more than one device

    worst part, it doesn't have to. Samsung could have release two variates, one with functionality, one with looks.

    Samsung might still release a "rugged" version that's waterproof and / or has removable battery.

    If Note 5 turns out to be like s6, note 3/4 will be the last samsung smartphone I own.
    Note 4 is a Beast.
