None of the above. I feel the handsets are becoming too expensive. All I use my phone for is calls, calendar, texts, emails and some browsing. So for me, the phone doesn’t need to have the latest hardware. It just needs to be functional with what I consider my must have features such as 4G, SD Card, NFC and a decent camera. Timely software updates is not necessary. Can someone recommend a mid-range headset that suits what I need?

Don’t be childish. I’ve had the M7, using M8 and can’t wait to be the first to get the M9. Specs don’t tell the whole story. Wife’s Note2 and Note4 is just inferior to my M7, M8.

All these phones cost as much as iphones used to cost in the beginning : double than anything else out there. It sounds a bit too much. Like a race for the golden phone. They should all have very fast phones, 5.5″, with quick cameras at half the price, like the n5 used to be. Samsung now has all these phones above the 1k mark and that is a joke. Look at the TVs you can get at that price. Sorry, but we are been taken for he iPhone ride here.

The S6 and S6 Edge have QHD screens. Are they likely to have text sharpening issues like the LG G3, or is that issue likely to be specific to the G3?

I remember when I owned a G3 for a week, the issue drove me crazy. I couldn’t even read Whirlpool clearly.

Displaymate just did a test of the S6/S6 Edge and found that it has the best display on the market in everywhere it counts. It even beats the Note 4 (the previous holder). The color accuracy, brightness and detail are market leading according to them.

Amoled displays are just inferior to IPS LCD. Wife’s Note4 screen is so overrated in real life compared to my M8. The only reason Samsung uses Amoled is to offset battery drain of a bigger screen. There’s also the reason why Apple has always used IPS screens. They don’t even have a FHD display yet but still incredible to look at.

Wow you like to get around like a troll on a broken record. You do realize that there are different screen modes on the Amoled devices now right? So you can choose if you want to keep it saturated or make it accurate. And that your M8 is saturated too. The note 4 and S6 are tied not just for world’s best mobile display overall, but that includes color accuracy. Boasting in their Basic mode more accurate colors than just about any other phone. Even higher quality than most TVs and monitors in the average home. The iPhone’s color gama… Read more »

Those modes don’t help it from what it is. Once you’ve used IPS monitors, especially desktop monitors, all led monitors suck. I personally use $1000 LCD IPS screens by LG which makes screens for Dell and Apple monitors. If u think Amoled is superior in quality and color reproduction, that’s just your preference. Because that’s false. Yes I still stand by the M8 has a better screen than the Note4 no matter what screen mode. Which is shocking considering the note 4 is 1440p.

Your premium monitors have nothing to do with the conversation. And unless they have a gamma error less than 1.0 are not very far ahead in color reproduction. So they might have a small lead in color reproduction…small…And that’s it. As for the rest they might match the white balance and fall behind in every other aspect. Fake blacks, washy contrast, more reflective, less angles, more consumed space, more energy hungry, and still probably have bright spots. And you have never seen a Note 4 or M8. The Note 4 in basic mode is vastly more accurate. The display is… Read more »

My claims ain’t false. 1440p Amoled on 5.7″ with 550ppi+ isn’t any greater than 1080p IPS 440ppi on a 5″ screen. Reason being that human eyes cannot tell the difference.

What this becomes now is a technical gimmick for nerds like u to troll on about specs which makes no sense in real life.

This is why it comes down to color reproduction.

Amoled fail hard.

hahah you must be joking, LCD displays are vastly inferior to AMOLED. Samsung has been able to produce the best overall smartphone display on its last 3 devices. Apple’s just trying to find as many ways to increase margins as possible so skimps on display quality and markets the gimmick of retina to gullible isheep. AMOLED is the future and M8 screen doesn’t come close to S5 let alone Note 4 and the S6

AMOLED displays are not superior especially in colour reproduction. They are only Gd for power consumption. The colour alone makes the display look cheap and unnatural no matter the modes. Samsung LED displays were always inferior to plasma output and quality with the only advantage being size and power consumption. My wife is a Samsung fan so there’s lots of products I have in hand to compare. My Pioneer Kuro T Plasma TV is still the best 1080p on the market today. And none of my Samsung LED pc displays can compare to my LG and dell IPS pc displays.… Read more »

AMOLED is inferior to IPS. Sorry but in reality it’s true. Specs on sheet don’t tell the whole story.

Perfect example would be 1440p Amoled 550+ ppi on a 5.7″ screen doesn’t look any sharper than a 5.0″ 440ppi 1080p screen. Simply because the human eye cannot visibly see the difference.

However the human eye does recognise color reproduction, which is why an IPS display always looks more premium and accurate compared to Amoled.

But whatever man. People always like something for a reason. Specs don’t mean much unless it is evident in real life.

I have been an HTC user for the last two phones, (M7 and M8) and before that I had a Nexus S (Samsung), so I know a bit about both camps (though not about Samsung’s TouchWiz). The superior audio in the HTC has never been something that interested me and it annoyed me that the M7 was using this as a selling point when there were many other features on the phone that made it the best Android option. The plastic back of the S4 was a turn off at the time. Yes, Sense is excellent, but I am disappointed… Read more »

Wolfson is the brand. DAC is the audio chip.
Wolfson is known for making the better audiO chips in mobiles among others.
While Samsung of course does not take full advantage of it sadly it means higher quality output.

S6 has very clean output. With good volume. Held back by Samsung some in volume though. But cleaner. And for hackers it’s all game on with audio mods with wolfson

The Note 4’s 5.7 inch QHD Amoled consumed up to 40% less power than most 5 inch 1080p LCDs.
The S6’s display is 20% more efficient than the S5’s.
And it’s resolution is a requirement for VR.
Plus ties in with the Note4 for World’s best mobile display.
And the Exynos chip uses less energy and throttles less.
So how is it useless?

And the cameras lean toward s6 due to better image processing and much better low lens.

There’s been a lot of critisism about the M9’s camera. Do we know for sure that the S6’s camera is great?

I agree that the Z4 and G4 should be good. It will be interesting to see if Sony switches to a QHD screen and if it increases the size; obviously LG will stick with QHD and it will also have a new UI.

Yeah, there is a test on youtube, which includes the autofocus feature, lightsensor, etc. And the M9’s camera clearly sucks against the Galaxy S6.

There is nothing wrong with the ultra pixel path. It was a great idea. Like they said though the issues is that it’s the same one a couple years later. In fact it was downgraded to lose OIS.

TouchWiz alone stops me from ever buying a Samsung. On the other hand, HTC has about the best UI available, as well as better speakers, LCD display (which I prefer to AMOLED) and a bigger battery. An added bonus is that the M7/M8/M9 have an elegance that no other handsets have. I’m still a sucker for a Sony though.

Tuchwiz is objectively ahead. Whether it’s what you prefer or not.
And it’s only gotten much better. The same way sense had to get better.

Plus now ontop of the improvements to Touchwiz Samsung ifs using a much stronger and more power efficient chip that will throttle a lot less. And dramatically faster storage.

And their new theme engine runs pretty deep. You can change all the icons and colors.

That obviously won’t change which you prefer to look at.

And HTCS battery is only about 300mah more. With a more power hungry display, SoC, memory, and radio set .

I haven’t decided yet. Leaning towards the m9 though. It all depends on price, how the 810 actually performs and how the camera turns out with its final software

I honestly think both will price themselves out of contention.

The Edge looks great in my opinion. I’ve got the Note 3 which I’ve found to be a great device. I’m going to see what the Note 5 looks like before I make my decision. But the Edge sure looks great.
