For those who own one, is the S6 worth it?

Currently have: Iphone 5.
Want to switch to android because of usual Apple BS and letdowns.
Like that Samsung finally made a premium-ish material phone.

Is it worth it? any bugs? Pros-cons?

Thanks in advance.

Samsung phones are usually rock solid. But honestly you really shouldn't go with any Samsung product... ever.

Why? Because their customer service is so horrendous that it makes Apple look like saints.

If I were to recommend a top end, premium android phone, it would be the Sony Xperia Z3.

It's a powerhouse of a phone with a wicked camera, stereo speakers and water resistant. It also comes with film protectors for the screen and back of the phone. If you own a PS4 you can remote play using the Z3 as well and pair a dualshock 4 controller for some pretty awesome gaming away from home.

There are some reports of the phone bending in people's pockets, just the same as the iPhone 6, but if you buy an Incipio dual case then it adds some bulk to the phone and just makes the phone that much more awesome.

If you wanted to go with a more budget friendly phone that can compete with the high end premium phones, you should also look at the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 2. I had an Idol X prior to my Z3 and had very few complaints about it.

I have a Galaxy note 3, and my wife has a S5. Both were powerhouse phones in their prime, but both have HORRENDOUS GPS. If you require your phone to know that you are driving and not deep sea fishing in the ocean, than I wouldn't recommend a Samsung phone.

Huh. I still have a Galaxy Note 2, and my GPS is extremely accurate.

To the OP: I wouldn't get an S6, simply because it is no longer waterproof, has no SD card slot, and you can't remove the battery. All the excellent design in the world doesn't matter a lick, because the first thing everyone does is put their phone in a case. I'd buy a GS5, or a Note 4.

I have an S4 but, have some friends with S6 edges.

Pros: That Samsung in-house made CPU hauls like nothing on the market. The new snapdragons are no where near as close.

Cons: Samsung bloatware is still kind off on there no matter what. Touch Wiz really illustrates this. As well the whole edge model just feels gimmicky to me.

To the guy who recommended a Z3. That phone is one of the worst phones I have ever owned. The glass is very fragile, even the smallest fall can crack it. The software is just horrendous and is extremely slow. The so called waterproofing is terrible as well as the seals fail and water gets through.

I accidentally cooked my GS4 in my pocket and had to take an early upgrade to a GS6. It's much much faster than my S4, but the lack of removable battery and SD card sucks.

People are having issues with quick charge killing accelerometer the http://gs6.wonderhowto.com/inspirati...ature-0161570/

Also the phone has really bad battery for in use or stand by. If you root and use flash fire you can use a custom ROM to get better battery life

And last the phone has a bad memory leak. Its a android related problem but the GS6 has it the worse so the recently use apps will have to reload each time you go back to them and not stay cached

Don't take this post as me hating on the gs6 I think its a good android phone but these issues are the reason I didn't buy one and went with the nexus 6

Look at the LG G4. I own the G3 and have been very impressed with this phone. My fiance owns the Galaxy S5 and I prefer the toned down UI that LG uses.
