    The xperia z2/z3 is very similar with an aluminium frame and glass back/front and that's waterproof, a unibody should in theory offer better water resistance since everything is held tightly in place.

    I hope i warm to the s6 though, it certainly is a beast.

    S6 is stripped down a lot though; you may actually like it. Try to always keep an open mind

    Do you think the note 4 will get s6 version of touchwiz?

    I don't think it will but it's not a big deal tbh. Right now there are over 20 ROMs for intl version so you can always flash debloated stock.

    I have the s805 tmo version and there are plently of debloated stock roms there too.

    who cares, they aren't a good representation of how the phone actually performs in apps.

    Look at it this way, Samsung have been making big.LITTLE chips for year's and have pretty much perfected them, qualcomm on the other hand have just started developing their own.

    But your whole argument is based on ONE benchmark. Benchmarks don't mean shit. Real life usage does.

    facepalm.. yeah sure! thats why there are hundreds of benchmarking companies with thousands of employees writing benchmarking tools, nah mate? so you are saying they are bunch of stupids doing practically nothing? yeah i agree... totally.. :)

    so u will argue that a chip that scores less than 30k in antutu will be smoother than a chip that scores a 60k with the same software, right? u judge ur decision by ur experience, i judge mine on (to some extent) roughly on benchmark scores (yeah, having more than average computer engineering background helps me with good judgement) when there aren't many other factors to consider (like user experience as u pointed)... preferences man.. good luck with ur own judgement, i will stick to my own.. and not to mention, even with driver optimization, its barely possible to achieve about 10% higher score.. here we are talking about over 60% improvement, not even considering the higher pixel count..

    I'm going to now your mind: you can CHEAT on benchmarks! Wow! What a novel idea! But those phone manufacturers are honest people and wouldn't do that!
