    Have to cut some slack to people, change is hard. I was fine with the changes because I already made the change years ago to go away from SD cards and removable batteries. However, I remember how hard it was for me to leave a physical keyboard back in the day.
    I totally understand because I said I'd never give up a physical keyboard or get a phablet (notice my pic of the note 4), but I didn't rant and rave like some of these people and then still give my money away. That's what makes the whole situation funny.

    Forums have a way of bringing out the kid in some of us, so a little whining is to be expected. I know I've done my share before.

    You know, when I seen the title of the thread and the first post, the nerd inside thought it appropriate to contribute.

    Not so much now.

    It was hard but I gave the BB keyboard and secure commas platform that,at the time, really couldn't compete with Apple or Android.

    I'm dying laughing. A million threads on how much the s6 sucks and how nobody will buy it. Now it's " I'll take that s6 in blue pls." 😂😂😂😂

    I'm with you. After using a couple devices without the SD card and removable battery, you find that these things don't really matter when it comes to the operation. The hardest part I had was moving from the physical keyboard to touch screen - the old BB days.

    In any event, I think these devices will make believers out of some people.

    Definitely sympathize and can totally understand but there comes a time to move on. I, on the other hand, have chosen to sit those discussions out. I was once like them but as I get older, I am trying to live in the moment and embrace the future. This device is going to be great as the one after it as I am confident that Samsung's Design with a Purpose philosophy is in gear when it comes to the next big thing.

    I've been on the " I Must have it !!" from the moment i saw AC's hands on video.
    Can't wait to have it. Leaving Verizon and going back to AT&T where the pone will actually work while I'm ay it.
    Verizon sucks. Unless they are your Only option where you live, i have no idea why people use it.
    worst company ever.

    I pretty excited about it especially after the unveil. We have been with AT&T for over 20 years and have been treated well. Our experience with them has always been great.

    I read that the S5 sold only 17 million units since its introduction. The preorders from carriers is already 20 million for the S6 (15M S6, 5M Edge). And that's before any reorders.

    This thing is going to be a monster!

    I applaud your restraint. As I have moved through devices from Treo to BlackBerry to Android, I have cursed most of the changes I had to make. From losing the stylus of the Treo when I moved to BlackBerry to giving up the physical keyboard as I moved on from the Motorola Droid, etc. However, luckily for me, forums weren't as popular as they are today and I was just able to internalize my frustrations and complain to my friends.

    I don't think folks have to move on yet. If you want an SD and/or removable battery simply select a different device. You still have plenty of options. It's simply not as though Samsung is the only OEM making handsets and, as has been stated countless times, even they offer alternatives to the S6.

    I think they are under estimating the Edge. I think it will be very popular.

    I hope I can get one on launch day. I too think they are under estimating how popular the edge will be.
    I wanted the Edge version immediately after seeing both models.

    The point all along has been to chose the device that best meets your needs. If this doesn't , select another device that does. The other point is not to focus on what you are missing but all the other things that you are gaining with all the gains form improved functionality and features.

    Here is the only real world scenario that worries me about sealed batteries. This did happen at work this week where a co-worker asked for my help with his work iPhone, (yeah that is what we get asigned, mine is a 4S) he has a iPhone 5C. The screen was completely unresponsive, dead to all touch, and no matter what, he even smacked it a few times it would not allow him to turn it off. As you may (or may not know) to turn off an iOS device its hold the power button until you see notification to slide to power of. Well if the screen is unresponsive and you can't pull the battery what are you to do. I told him to call our internal IT support or hit up the Apple store.

    With great reward there is always risk. Doubt with how some people upgrade, you will be on the next iteration of this device before it becomes a problem.

    There's a Samsung rep in Carphone Warehouse in Swindon, UK, with an S6 today. Had a very quick go. Its certainly snappy.

    With less than 30 days to launch I would hope we would hear some pre-order details soon from carriers that haven't announced it....specifically AT&T! Heck if Verizon already announced a pre-order start date then AT&T should announce soon I would think.

    I really think the edge version is going to be hard to come by at the beginning....

    I agree with you about the Edge. I think it will launch across all carriers on the 10th.

    I am a staunch Samsuck and TouchCrap hater. My entire android life was Galaxy. My wife and kids called it getting our of Samsung Jain when we walked at the S4.

    The Note series and the S6 though! Whoa! Very very nice. The Note 4 speaks for itself.

    The S6, that SoC, that ultra fast storage, that form factor, and most importantly, 40% less TouchCrap bloat??? Yup. I am on that like whoa.

    After a couple version of Nexus stuff (N5 for all of us, N6, N7's etc), my wife realized, she wants a better camera. She uses a big DLR with zoom lenses and stuff like that. For spur of the moment, she uses what is in her hand. If it is my phone, her phone, or a tablet, she snaps what picture she can. These Nexus have awful cameras. For her, that camera has her locked, and it will be bearable for her due to the smaller TouchCrap footprint, and Nova Launcher.

    For us both, the realization sunk in Las Vegas this month. She wanted a custom case for her phone. A little kiosk in the Fashion Show Mall would put our wedding picture from years ago, on a case right then and there, for iPhone 4-6+, LG G3, and Galaxy S3 (??!!)-S5. Not a chance in hell for Nexus.She saw a Chanel case she wanted. Same phones.

    When you own Nexus, you are supposed to get updates. Well, I have been flashing, because when you have an AT&T SIM, you don't get the updates. I have had to flash all of our Nexus updates, a month after they come out. She never even got 5.0 on her tablet, it jumped from 4.4.3 to 5.01. What's the point in a weaker phone when you get slow updates on inferior hardware. Make no mistake, the S6 is amazing tech.

    Yeah, I am back on board, but we had seats already, my whole family owned S1-S3's.

    Yeah...I couldn't wait to @#$%can my Samsung, but I'm on board...big time. I don't think LG is going to make a phone small enough for me and it already has some rumors of a curved back...blech.

    True, given my penchant for upgrades I will be on the Note 5 when it comes along. I guess my point was if you can't power off a sealed device what do you do, I guess you let the battery die and hope that fixes it. But if I recall correctly on Android you don't have to swipe to power off, just hold the power button, so Android does it better.
