I never really got the excitement around smartphone launches. Sure, I’d talk about them, read up on the phones, and all that stuff, but I’d never actually get just why people were so excited about a slight variation on their older phone. Until I got one. Now I get it. Having something this fast and powerful in your pocket makes your life a whole lot easier, and when you’re someone like me who needs regular access to the Internet, it only makes things better. No more forgetting to download podcasts; stream them from the cloud!
Needless to say, people were very excited about the announcement of the new Samsung Galaxy S6. More powerful, faster, lighter… all the usual smartphone improvements are there, but they come at a cost. No more user replacement of the battery and no more Micro-SD card slot. If you care about expanding memory and having better battery power, then this might not be the kind of development you’re looking for, but for everyone else–and most normal users–the S6 is an improvement over the old favorite, even if some of the design wrinkles haven’t been worked out.
