USB Type-C
USB Type-C is the future. However, it is acceptable that Samsung decided to not include it at this early stage as the supply chain of complimentary products (power banks, data transfer cables and wall chargers) for USB Type-C is not up to the level to fulfill the requirements of the high-end smartphone user.

Re: USB Type-C
@Brian.Dean: Samsung should have included it. The normal public wouldn't understand the difference but smartphone enthusiasts would. If the other manufacturers did include the USB Type C, they must have done it knowing fully that the supply chain would adjust in a couple months time and churn out back-compatible products.

Re: USB Type-C
@SachinEE, there is also the situation of not finding a USB Type-C charger at a friend's or relative's home. Currently, a mini USB charger can be found at virtually every location. Public charging stations will also need to be refitted with USB Type-C chargers. However, it will be interesting to check a public station as there might have installed it.

Re: USB Type-C
@Brian: Upgradations only need 6 months. Chargers would start appearing everywhere. Most of us carry a powerbank with us, its just takes swapping the regular USB cable with the USB Type C cable.

12 megapixels too low?
I don't understand why they had to do this. Yes they went with an ultrapixel camera, but no matter the pixel size, the 12 MP camera is only fit for social networks. Moreover, Samsung phones are pretty bad in low light, they get hazy and jittery. I don't think the aperture size has to do anything about it, I think samsung uses really bad post processing software.

Re: 12 megapixels too low?
@SachinEE: I agree, Samsung cameras are flawless under proper lighting, but they fail miserably in low light conditions. I believe their camera interface is backwards at best, and needs changing. It needs proper manual modes and a better post processing software.
