If you use mostly wifi and very little data, could be interesting(assuming you don't mind carrying a massive phone).   For data hogs like myself, not very tempting.   I would have thought they would undercut the price per gigabyte substantially, but this is about the same the other carriers, and more expensive once you go over 4 or 5 gigabytes on an individual plan.  On the flip side, the traveling and included tethering a nice perks.  Not a huge shift, but maybe a start...
 So you just changed the argument from hardware to software?  Your now saying android is poorly optimized, which would result in poor performance?  Wouldn't that in turn mean the hardware in the S6 is more impressive?  And while on screen it benchmarks slower than the iphone 6, it isn't "Extremely poor performance", but that plays so much more to your narrative.  I would say if at 79% of the Iphone 6 while pushing many more pixels is extremely poor(in the on screen T-rex...
Im not saying it should be disregarded, it is an absolute concern if it effects daily use.  THose points are legitimate, its the FUD of calling parts cheap and bad engineering when its simply not the case.   Any of the reviews tell you this device is fast and the screen is beautiful.  I doubt you would come to that conclusion reading DED's FUD.
The iphone is in all of the benchmark tests they list on the site, including the screen tests(double check your link that you just posted).    Your rediculous hit piece takes 1 piece of information and expands it into many many paragraphs of crap.   You call a part cheap, even though it outperforms almost all competitors in terms of absolute performance, and is fabbed at the state of the art 14nm.   The mali GPU is outperforming the adreno 430, which is plenty fast.   In...
 Those were just non "technobabble" quotes.   The article on Anand is much more detailed and includes all those useless benchmarks.   I am simply saying calling the GPU cheap when it outperforms most other competitors in offscreen performance(IE same number of pixels), seems to be innacurate at best or a blatant lie at worst.  He is pulling very specific benchmarks to further his weekly hit piece, and then making up FUD to go with it.   If he stuck to arguing simply...
You seem to mistake that I am supporting Samsung.  I am not.  I just despise these DED articles that contain blatant lies.  I am not arguing the merits of the OS's(as Touchwiz is garbage), I am simply saying that the DED article contains obvious factual errors that I assume are intentional to further this hit piece.  And I guess " the display of the Galaxy S6 is relatively perfect with its dark, inky blacks and amazing color" and "The Exynos 7420 SoC appears to be...
I would recommend going to Anandtech if you want an actual comparison. Two excerpts that directly contradict DED's conclusions:   "The Exynos 7420 SoC appears to be class-leading in performance, although there is the obvious question of power consumption that still has to be answered. Samsung’s first 14LPE SoC seems promising, although we’ve yet to validate whether big.LITTLE is more efficient than when we last tested it in the Exynos 5433. The GPU is generally quite...
You do realize that LGBT are considered a protected class in half of the states that have similar existing laws?  Also, in many of these states the laws apply only to government action, not to private transactions?   But you would rather read some blog that obfuscates the truth.  And the Russia/chinese comparison is a bit of a stretch don't you think, since Apple is an American company?  How would we feel in America if a prominent Chinese company was trying to overtly...
You don't see the hypocrisy in your post? Lets break this down real nice and simple.   Our economy is based on the idea of exchanging money for goods or services.   The idea is, you put a price on something, and I have the money, I can purchase that item/service.   You think a business should be able to advertise an item or service to the public, but then deny service when someone comes to them with money, simply based on belief?   If that is the case, shouldn't that...
Blue Fade is a known issue on OLED, and is compensated for.   Older OLED's used much larger blue sub pixels to help compensate for the low emmission efficiency, but the current AMOLED's in use have the red and blue sub pixes the same size.   Below is ripped from a massive article on OLED's and LCD differences: "OLED Aging: All display technologies age to varying degrees. The current generation of Blue OLEDs age much faster than the Red and Green OLEDs. The current 50...
