Someone at gsmarena copied something ?. Probably find it gets amended in the future.

As I have both the G4 and S6 Edge they definitely have different figures for battery stats. Audio is different too. In fact the phones couldn't be more different if you tried.
They actually mention in the link that the two 'had identical results'. I mean, wow, right? How stupid do they think people are?

Here's the quote:

"As it turned out both Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge outed absolutely the same results in all of our tests – 3G calls, web browsing, video playback and stand-by endurance."

MIND. BLOWN.

Maybe you ought to not base on fact. I have both. The S6 Edge screen on time is around 1 hour less. Standby is less too. So in real life G4 better.

Next screen. One in amoled and the other IPS. So they will always look different.

Screen. Just took shot attached at full brightness with both devices side by side. Both look good to me. The G4 is a stunning device.

Don't bother Gavin. This is a guy who sent me a private message saying how bad the G4 is and a waste of money and I got ripped off.

Who sends that to someone via a private message?

Laughing my ass off.

GSMarena. Poor battery results but it's gsmarena, so I don't know.

what do you mean by "but it's gsmarena" they are honest reviewer arent they?
and if this test is true i am really disapointing

No. Just.. no.

First of all, it's a well known fact that their audio quality tests are a farce, as was confirmed by the legend Supercurio himself.

Secondly, have a look at this link:

http://blog.gsmarena.com/samsung-galaxy-s6-galaxy-s6-edge-battery-life-tests/

There are so many things wrong with those results that it isn't even funny anymore. Firstly, do you honestly think that it's possible for the S6 and S6 Edge to get the EXACT SAME battery time for calls, browsing and video, right down to the exact same minute? No. It's an absolute and blatant lie which is severely misguiding everyone else who believe them based on their 'reputation'. I mean, even if there were two S6's, the god damn physics of the situation for them to have the EXACT same battery time for a given task is IMPOSSIBLE. So much for their credibility, then. Honestly, I cannot trust a website with such obvious lies.

Secondly, just have a look at this battery life:
gsmarena_002.jpg


I mean, wow. You'd think that the battery on the S6 is some sort of voodoo magic. Is this really the battery life everyone's been getting? The 72 hour 'endurance rating' ****e they've come up means that phone will last 3 DAYS with an hour of calls, browsing and video each day. Meaning, ladies and gentlemen, the S6 will have 3 days of standby time with 6 hours screen on time, thus solving once and for all the battery problems we must face with fast QHD phones, right? WRONG. At best, at its absolute very best, the S6 has very average battery to bad, and this is a well known fact. Ask anyone who has the GS6 and tell me if what GSMarena reported checks out. Hell, I had the S6 but returned it because of the poor battery - which, for my usage, was worse than the G3 i've had in the past.

It honestly wasn't all bad once upon a time. A majority of the phones I've had used to get battery similar to what was reported by GSMarena. But ever since the S4 and S5, their lies got frequent and nothing has checked out, for me.



Well, I will use both mobile and then after will give my comments on it. I still don’t agree with you. :cool:

You can choose to believe whatever you want but if you seriously think you'll get identical minutes draining the s6 and s6 edge in calls, browsing AND video - prepare to be shocked

    Great [emoji4]

    One thing I have to ask:
    (In your opinion) Is there any noticeable difference between the two displays (S6&G4) both are supposed to be a gen ahead of competition.

    Or do they go neck to neck like in camera department ?
    Thanks[emoji2]

    Ok, I'll try and answer this .

    The S6 Edge is a technological masterpiece . Ultra thin. Has every piece of tech known to man inside and does most things reall well. But you pay for this privilege. It has quick charging 2 out of the box, wireless charging built in, s health and all the sensors like heart rate monitor, fingerprint scanner that works a treat, it looks different with curved edges, curved edge features are minimal but they still work, double pressing home button wherever you are to launch the camera is very convenient. Video recording audio is slightly better on S6. Screens are different but the S6 with auto brightness trick with contrast can go much brighter when it messes around temporarily with contrast. Samsung Pay when it arrives may or may not be handy. At the moment there are no manual camera controls but Samsung is rumoured to implement these. Until they do and we see how they have it is impossible to comment. That is why it is also best to wait 3 months after a phone is released to see how they settle down with fixes and updates. Also become cheaper too buy. The internal storage used is fast. The processor Samsung use is the fastest on any benchmarks. So is it game over for LG.

    No. Why because it is a different phone and type of phone. It has a bigger screen that is wonderful to view. IPS vs Amoled offer different experiences. The S6 goes brighter and darker. But at times I find the G4 really bright as its IPS . It also goes dark too. It is readable in sunlight but not at the weird contrasted look by the S6. This only works when the sun hits the S6 screen btw. Comfort. Even with the metallic look back, the G4 is miles more comfortable to hold. With leather it's even better. The leather backs do add a touch. Of class. I prefer it to the S6 Edge look. Obviously some countries won't like or be able to use the leather option. So I recommend the ceramic white back. Very nice in person.

    The G4 camera for stills is better than the S6. Period. The S6 has a option in settings to track moving targets. You have to remember to toggle this on or off as required. It's not a perfect system but does work. With a bit of skill on the G4 I am sure I will be no worse off. At the moment I am not at the skill level that I am with the S6 and that is because I have used the S6 for much longer. Processor. The processor works well with the G4. But it is not as fast as the S6. This only becomes slightly noticeable in heavy duty media and gaming. But ironically when the S6 gets hot it slows down the processor. The 808 in the G4 rarely gets hot let alone warm, so could in the long run equal it out. The G4 as an audio machine sounds better than the S6. period. That's via speaker, Bluetooth or wired headphones.

    I've received the latest update from Samsung to fix the S6 Edge memory issues. But I still get the memory issues and notices of apps closing. The Edge seems to have around 750mb always free ram, the G4 always around 1.5mb ram but then it's on android 5.1. That's why I want to wait a few months for the true picture . I also want to retest with my official retail UK G4 black leather phone and see if the Korean one I have was different or not.

    I take the simpler approach. Don't worry about comparisons. Just buy them all ???
