I understand the glass back lights up and changes color. Can anyone confirm that?

Wouldn't surprise me..lol
All of you stop it, please, you and I know that you will all be first in line for this S6 beast of a smartphone, and this coming from a Note 4 owner. Is the expandable storage a downer "a little" but you can always get one of these http://www.amazon.com/gp/produ...TVPDKIKX0DER , removable battery not so much "it is nice to have, but not a deal breaker for me, and I have extra batteries that I never use, my Note 4 has fantastic battery life" and I am sure the S6 will have even better battey life with the new more power efficient .14nm Exynos beast, not the heat missle that is known as the Qualcomm Sanpdragon, their chips do get a bit hot and that is no lie. The S6 also comes with super fast rapid charging, wireless charging, fantastic camera in all lighting conditions, fast DDR4 Ram 3 Gigs of it, a gorgeous 2.5K Super Amoled screen, better speaker, better fingerprint scanner, more premium fit and finish. Tomorrow when you all gather your senses you will realize that this is a beast of a smartphone, and no other smartphone to date comes close, including my beloved Note 4.
I am sure mophie mophie Innovation - At the Forefront of New Technology will come out with a nice battery case that will protect the camera and give everyone that extra juice that you might need from time to time.
Yeah that's a nice case / charger to have and even out the camera...
And I love fast charge...one of my favorite things about Nexus 6... Other night needed a last boost for the rest of evening so quick from 5% to 50%...

Samsung realized that they needed to go in a different direction "design wise" , their mobile division was starting to take a major hit, and changes need to be made, drastic ones at that, that is what happens at any big corp. when things are not falling the right way, and people will lose jobs over it "as it was the case at Samsung Mobile", the big boys needed to see change, and change they got in a fresh new look at Samsung mobile and it's new design language, it started with the Note 4, and it continues with the S6, and this is just the beginning of better things to come from Samsung, and getting rid of the heat missile called Snapdragon was the first step in the right direction.
This phone will sell like hot cakes, and the marketing campaign for the S6 will be nothing like anyone here has ever seen.
I have't had a S series phone since the S3, but I usually get them for my wife. I watched the live stream earlier and waited for confirmation of the lack of SD Card and removable battery. Soon as i heard that, I knew she was not going to want this phone. Cant really blame her, either.
Battery life on my Note 4 is great. I don't have a spare bbattery (haven't really needed one since the Note 2). But, if I am hacking the phone, and something goes sideways, I prefer the removable battery. As for the SD Card slot, I don't keep any of my personal files on the phone itself. They are all on my Micro SD card. Could i use cloud storage? Sure, as i have several accounts. But to backup WITHOUT using my cellular data would require me to wait until i am on Wi-Fi or connected to a computer. Not about to do all of that. Plus, going back to hacking the phone, I usually use a Micro SD card during the process. I am sure the Devs will work inside this box and get around it, but still. And honestly, I do not really trust cloud storage, unless it's mine that i would use from my home server.
To be fair, the phone looks amazing, but I prefer functionality over form. Plus, I keep my phone in a case, so it's not like it will be fully seen anyway. Overall, not all that excited. So, no S6 in this house. Here's hoping the Note 5 won't be as pretty lol
They took a pretty big hit last quarter.
I haven't seen an analysis, but I think two things are happening in mobile to really dent sales:
1) the premium market is now fully saturated and sales are probably starting to track user upgrade cycles
2) users are waiting longer to upgrade because the newer phones just don't perform that much better than phones out in the past 1-2 years
Also saw Apple makes profits hand-over-fist but Android really struggles. This is because Android OEM's still haven't figured out how much money they're wasting on R&D and marketing for too many models. The other key to the Apple model is they just continue longer production runs and fill the mid-tier market with older models while the dumb Android OEM's try to develop phones specifically for that market. The Apple model is just far more efficient, and therefore much more profitable, from top to bottom.
If I was Sammie, for example,
1) I'd be selling the S4 to the lower market with production and component costs coming down on that. I'd sell the S5 to the mid-tier, and the S6 to the premium market. With the launch of the S6 I'd be running a clearance sale on the S3, possibly mostly into developing markets.
2) I would release, at most, 4 display sizes on 2-year cycles. Then the S version launches every other year, with the mini version launching in between. At this point, I'd almost go with just the S, Note and mini on 3-yr cycles. If you're keeping score at home, by the time that phone makes its way from the premium market to the low-tier developing market we're talking 5-6 years.
I mean, I've seen "mid-tier" phones launch recently with trivially different specs from the HTC Rezound, which is over 3 years old. That approach HAS to siphon-off profits from the bottom line.
I really hope those prices aren't going to be right. $781 for the 32gb S6? That's almost $200 more than the current phone!
Just watch, next year Sammy is going to take over the world /eyeroll

It is 3GB RAM, but that is their new DDR4 RAM. The phone will perform flawlessly paired with their Exynos 7.
They never confirmed nor denied whether or not the U.S. version would ship with the 810 or the Exynos 7. It's kind of strange that they sidestepped talking about that feature. So that leads me to wonder about cell radio signals. My Note Edge has the Qualcomm inside and its signal outperforms all other phones in the house.
The camera lens is covered in sapphire and the metal they used is 50% stronger than current phones on the market (read:iPhones). The glass is also Gorilla Glass 4.
I'm surprised at how much these phones appeal to me. Where I am not thrilled about a non-removable battery I am preparing myself for it when the Note 5 arrives. 128GB of storage may get me by, but I already know that I will miss removable storage as well.
This is a great upgrade from the S5.
And Sandisk just unveiled a new 200gig micro sd. But it will be at least mid-2016 before it's affordable.
