This is with all my apps installed. Also discovered a way to take a screen shot with a side swipe.

Not too bad then as I think you can remove/disable some Samsung apps too from what I have been reading. Also I think until last year it was around 9GB system memory compared to 6.75 now.

Is there an option for other regions? I think you choose that one.

To be honest never looked as I never really use it but I am sure you can if one is not listed.

Why not ? Tried most of the top end phones when they're released and always happy with Samsung.

I have owned 3 Samsung phones and 6 Tablets and I have been disappointed with them all and utterly frustrated with the S5

Also I felt that the 6 was quite slippery especially the back, my thought was that a case would be advisable

I have no intent more a curiosity why you would come into a Samsung thread if you don't like them, seems rather pointless but entirely your right

I still have. Samsung device and I still have an interest and an opinion of them.

Now that's over with, I did like the clean up of the OS, touch wiz is still there but did not seem to be getting in the way. Being able to disable or remove features one dose not want is an added improvement. They have listened a bit to consumers.

I've never batted an eye towards any of the previous Samsung S phones barring the old S2, simply because of the touchwiz interface myself.

The s6 has really cleaned itself up, and having used it for a day I can say so far that I'm really enjoying the new features of the phone.

One thing that I've noticed though, is that using the Fleksy keyboard, I have to be careful how I hold the phone as if my hand comes in contact with the rounded edges near the keyboard it really messes with what I'm typing!
