waay better than the other notes. I didnt even really like samsung before the S6 but it feels great in your hand, like an actual flagship phone instead of a creaky plastic back ZTE, ala every other samsung. And I used to care about a removable battery and micro-SD until I really thought about it.
The memory in the S6 is Blazing fast, in fact it smashes almost every phone out there. However, the S6 would be considerably slower if it had an external memory card, just by querying the slot in normal operation, and how often do I Really physically remove the card?
If the phone wouldnt power on or got dropped in water is about it. Do I really need 32 gigs of bullshit on my phone? Or do you really need your titanium backup file from 6 phones ...

But wait

You do realize there is a difference between memory and storage right? And that the speed of storage only comes into play when you've tapped out all your physical memory and the OS has to use what is known as "virtual memory," where it takes some storage space and uses it to supplement the capacity of the memory. You do also realize that any performance hit your device took from using external storage would be comparable to the hit it would also take from using internal storage as virtual memory? The only difference would be that without the expandable storage ...

Love it. Wow you really ripped into him line by line! lol I agree with you. I refuse to buy any Android phone that doesn't have a removable battery or SD slot. This guy is just trying to justify buying it by making himself feel better. He decides he doesn't really even want an SD card slot after "thinking about it." Yeah, it would be like buying an expensive new car, but it has plastic hub caps instead of alloy wheels and you decide you really didn't even want alloy wheels after "thinking about it." He's just trying to make himself feel better after getting ripped off.
