So I'm up for an upgrade in 4 days. My current Galaxy S4 performs mostly fine. I did get the lollipop upgrade a few weeks back. It does have a battery drain issue that seem to be an issue for all phones on Android 5.0.1... the likelyhood of getting to Android 5.1 is slim unless I go with a 3rd party rom. I don't need to be on the latest and greatest OS version, it's just that 5.1 seems to fix some of the battery issue. I only see 3 options if I upgrade Galaxy S6 Pros: Been a Samsung owner since the original Galaxy... had the S2 and now the S4... been generally happy with them. Best screen Lightest Best 3rd party accessory selection Optional upgraded built in storage without using an SD card. Fast Charging Wireless Charging Performance - one of the fastest phones on the market right now Cons: Touchwiz - I almost always immediately replace Touchwiz with NovaLauncher, so this isn't that bad. BLOAT - Samsung packs their phones with huge amounts of bloatware that you can't remove. The S6 reportedly has at least 10 gigs of bloat pre-installed. Slow software updates No more removable battery Battery has less capacity than my current S4 Google Nexus 6 Pros: First to get android updates little to no bloat Big battery Raw android - no heavy launcher Fast Charging Big screen Performance Cons: Internal memory is 32gig max - no external SD card slot - you are expected to save everything in the cloud Non-Removable battery Not the best quality screen LG G4 Pros: Middle range battery capacity - larger than my S4 but smaller than the Nexus 6 Removable battery Upgradeable Storage Slightly better camera Cons: Performance - roughly half that of the S6 None of these options really inspire me to spend $200 to upgrade my phone, so keeping the S4 for now is also a possibility. At the moment I'm leaning towards the S6, but I wonder if that is just out of habit. Thoughts?
