Repeat of failure
If the galazy S6 and edge failed to live up to their release potential, why them do they take features that obviously irk users like the inaccessible battery and only internal memory to feature on the next release? In the next version you are supposed to fix those things. Sounds like the new phone needs more redesign, not a faster relaese.

bye bye Samsung
sales of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have failed to live up to expectations

The Note 5 will have an embedded battery and no SD card slot, like the S6. Will the Note 5 also have the same fate as the S6?

I wonder when will be too soon to start checking the Chinese phones?

Re: Replacement Cycle
The smartphone are getting more and more powerful. But consumers are already somehow tired of the pure improvement in performance. Instead they are seeking for something innovative - some killer products.

Replacement Cycle
The replacement cycle of smartphones continues to increase. The cycle used to be at 24 months but, research firms have been predicting a 30 months cycle for 2015/2016. I feel that performance and prices have both not lived up to consumer expectations. Since, a long time there was no real incentive for a consumer to upgrade from a GS4 to a GS5, and from a GS5 to a GS6.
