    Agreed.. my feeling for a while has been that the real interesting development is in the price wars and budget space.. The kind of phones the chinese are building for 4 and 5k baht now is kinda crazy.. iNew closes of oppo seems nuts for just a few 1000b..

    Totally out of touch with the tablet space lately but the Z4 sony looks kinda trick.. Nicely slim..

    Ubuntu phone will be very version 1.0 but keen to see if that becomes a viable OS..

    Not much in the way of groundbreaking stuff these days?

    Better cameras, faster chips, slimmer fabelts / big phones, better battery life..........waterproofing pretty much standard now and a great piece of mind I wouldnt do without

    I've got a Z3 and the key difference I've found with this phone is you can actually use it pretty heavily for 2 days without charging when set to stamina mode

    Samsung Galaxy S6 review: Subject Zero

    Key features

    • Thin (6.8mm) profile, premium dual-glass design reinforced by a metal frame
    • 5.1" Super AMOLED of QHD (1440 x 2560) resolution, class-leading ~577ppi, Corning Gorilla Glass 4
    • Exynos 7420 64-bit chipset, octa core processor with four 2.1GHz Cortex-A57's and four 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 cores, Mali-T760 MP8 GPU, 3GB of RAM
    • Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with TouchWiz and Samsung Pay
    • 16MP camera, f/1.9 aperture, 4K video recording, LED flash, optical image stabilization
    • 5MP front-facing camera, f/1.9 aperture, 1080p video, HDR
    • 32/64/128 GB of built-in storage
    • Active noise cancellation via dedicated mic
    • Fingerprint scanner
    • LTE Cat.6, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, GPS/GLONASS/Beidou, NFC, IR port, Bluetooth 4.1, ANT+
    • Heart-rate sensor, barometer, SpO2
    • Wireless charging (Qi/PMA)
    • 2,550mAh battery

    Main disadvantages

    • No water or dust protection
    • Rather pricey at launch, including really steep memory upgrade premiums
    • No user-replaceable battery
    • No microSD slot
    • No FM radio
    • No stereo speakers


    Key test findings

    • Excellent build quality, premium finish, very good grip, size easily pocketable.
    • Best in-class Quad HD Super AMOLED display with the highest pixel-per-inch density to date. Its contrast ratio, viewing angles, and sunlight legibility are all chart-toppers.
    • Battery life is above average but turned out noticeably worse than the S5.
    • TouchWiz has gotten leaner and more customizable (theme downloads), less features, but also less clutter
    • Excellent overall performance, probably the fastest Android smartphone around
    • The loudspeaker is average in loudness and quieter than the Galaxy S5
    • Excellent multimedia package out of the box
    • Solid audio quality
    • 16MP main camera is among the best in terms of resolved detail, noise and sharpness, as well as features, but our test charts show that the Galaxy Note 4 is still ever so slightly better
    • Video quality is excellent both in 2160p and 1080p resolution, but again, the Galaxy Note 4 video feed is marginally sharper

    ^ not impressed with that spec

    Water & dust proofing is a must
    SD card slot is a must
    Stereo speakers a must
    Best battery life is a must...........Sony Z3 is the bar
