    Other than it being redesigned, I'm Not impressed with it. Which is a bummer because I was rather excited for it. I pick it up to use it and it's just "meh" , for lack of a better word. Anyone else feel this way? Still feels like another old Samsung device. Don't get me wrong, I love the design but other than that I just don't think it's for me, I'll give it a few more days but I'll most likely be returning it.

    I love it. I had the note 4 and it was not as quick and snappy as this one. I have an iPhone 6 and this reminds me of a cross between an iPhone and a samsung.

    I just feel like I'm using my old S5 at times. I like my M8 much better. Have had pretty good battery life though!

    So you had 3 weeks to play with the phone in best buy before you got it now you've had it two days and already want to return it seems like a waste .now it's used

    To each his own, but I owned the M8 and I'm enjoying the S6 far more at this point. Better screen, far better camera, and more manageable with one hand even though it has a slightly larger screen. Of course it's going to feel like using an S5 to a certain extent because it's a Samsung phone. It's not going to be a completely different experience (like going from an M7 to M8 to M9...mostly the same experience with incremental improvements. Same can be said about the iPhone).

    Besides, the S5 was by no means a bad phone - it had the best screen and camera of any phone when it came out, but the design and TouchWiz left a lot to be desired. The S6 is a huge improvement in nearly every way and, IMO, is probably the most complete Android phone available right now.

    Well, this is my first Samsung since and old flip phone from around 15 years ago. So my expectations are high but if I'm disappointed there's always the return within the 14. Looking forward to getting back into android also as my last android device was running "gingerbread" Yup. :P
    Hope it's gotten loads better. And............
    From what I've seen so far at BB for the past few days(that rep surely got tired of seeing me)I don't think it will be disappointing at all. Arrives in a couple more days.

    And your point is? I loved it in the store, only got to use it a few times. I didn't dedicate every single day to stay at best buy to play with the phone. Now that I've got the device it just seems mediocre to me. Opinions change on things, can't help that

    Oh, Android is fantastic now(was before) but it's just great. The S6 is great. I haven't returned it yet. Love the camera on it. I hope you enjoy it!

    I guess I'm in the majority here bit I've never had a problem one handing the M8 haha. I don't have big hands at all but it's never been a problem. I think It might be amoled screens. Not a huge fan of them anymore

    Definitely, definitely not a mediocre phone by any means at all.

    Powerful processor
    Streamlined Touchwiz which is faster and more beautiful than ever
    DDR4 RAM
    Both wireless charging methods
    The best camera in the industry
    Great build quality
    Very fast performance
    Samsung pay (when it launches) will be awesome.

    So many more things.

    This is objectively the best smartphone on the market specs wise and to me, it is the best one out by a mile.

    People ultimately fail to realize that a phone is just a phone. Not a world changer. They expect a certain device to bring them complete happiness and no device will ever do that. Happiness comes with being content with what you have, not just by having the latest and greatest which in the Android world will only last a few months anyways.

    It does what its supposed to do:
    Fast: check
    Last at least 8 hours without charge: check
    Take great pictures: check
    Option of wireless charging: check
    What more do you want?

    Hey, I understand where you're coming from. Sometimes to want a significant change when upgrading phones, and you're probably not seeing that going from an S5 to S6. That's probably the reason why I upgraded from an HTC One M7 to the S6 instead of the HTC M9.... Wanted something different.

    I don't understand how you can call the S6 mediocre when it pretty much trumps the M8 in most categories.

    Everyone comes to the party with different preferences and experience. I agree that the GS6 has really taken great strides forward and the M9 has its advantages but HTC made some different choices. Except for for the dual speakers, the GS6 appears to have exceeded the M9 or M8.
