Still waiting for the official pricing for the HTC One M9 but Noel Leming is showing it at $1250, so that makes the S6 at $1100 for the 32GB look pretty reasonable by comparison. The Galaxy S range has normally started out at $1100 hasn't it?

They won't be moving many M9's at that price.

The pricing is a bit less than I thought. I have worked my way through the loss of the replaceable battery and no SD card and it isn't that much of a workaround just have to change some habits with charging but with wireless charging it can sit on that overnight. The Edge looks great but for me it won't work too well given I don't like cases and most of my phones I drop so would break that pretty quick.

Read yesterday that the S6 Active is very likely going to replace the fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor with an SD slot.

The finger scanners on the Samsung devices are horrible, the examples I have used the S5 and TabS are just a waste of time. The scanner on my iPhone 6+ and my partners Huawei Ascend Mate 7 work brilliantly.

I used them for a bit on the S5 and TabS and gave up, it would be quicker to put in a 50 character password with upper and lower case, numeric and various other assorted characters.

These prices being bandied about are making the Nexus 6 look like a bargain

I'm struggling to see how pricing can jump around 20% from the last model

You mean like this, but for the same model iPhone?

The finger print sensors on the S6 and S6 Edge is not like the S5 and Tab S swipe style anymore. It works the same way as Touch ID now.
