Re: "slightly better phone"
How was it even "slightly better"...?
I thought it was significantly worse:
- metal case - worse in a fall than the polycarbonate that your metal-obsessed pundits kept calling "plastiky" It was a switch for the stupid: loose a bunch of useful features for slivers of needless, cheap aluminum.
- no Micro SD card - a total no-go for me - and certainly worse than last year's phone
- no swappable battery - worse than last year's phone
- no water / dust proofing - worse than last year's phone
Does anybody really care if the processor got unnoticably faster? S5 ran absolutely smooth, S6 runs absolutely smooth. Can anybody tell the difference between FHD and QHD or whatever they call the new resolution? I don't look at my phone screen with a magnifying glass.
Did the camera get marginally better? possible. I wouldn't know, cause the first 4 bullet points got the phone off my shopping list instantly.
Lastly, Samsung has that evil plan to collude with Crapple to eliminate SIM cards from phones. That alone makes me not to want to give my money to Samsung ever again.
Every time you want to change SIM cards, you'll have to beg your miserable greedy bastard telco for it? Good luck with that.
