    Gizmag has a nice side by side comparison that displays the pros and cons between the 2 phones with what appears to be the most current specs they know.

    Read about it here.

    Less powerful battery and non-removable and no SD card is a deal breaker for me.

    Non-removable battery and no sd storage is also a deal breaker for me.

    s6 is pretty cool but the sad thing is yeah the battery is not removable, no SD card slot. I think that's the deal breaker for me.

    But ~4 hrs of life on a 10 minute charge makes the non-removable battery less painful. Likewise with internal memory up to 128 gb.

    Why on earth would they put in a less powerful battery in the 6 and then make it non removable? It's got 2550 mAh battery compared to the 2800 mAh battery I've got now in my GS4?

    The 6 has a 2.1 GHz processor. Mine has a 2.5 GHz processor. There's more but that's enough. I'll probably get the SS5 when I'm eligible for an upgrade in June. It'll probably be far less than $200 by that time.

    In theory, the processor should consume less power and be more efficient. Doesn't matter if you use your phone as an Xbox replacement. It's going to eat through the battery anyway.

    It seems more OEMs are going with non-removable batteries. Not sure why the trend is so.

    I almost forgot to mention the expert in ergonomics who decided to put the headphone input at the bottom of the phone instead of the top which, of course, requires you to put the phone in your pocket upside down. Dohhhh. Why do they insist on fixing things that aren't broken...rhetorical

    It'll sure put a lot of battery makers out of business.

    I agree there. Although I have found most non-OEM batteries are not all that great. ZeroLemon did impress me.
