Compared to an S6 it has more battery, lower screen resolution, only SD615, less internal storage (probs slower than S6 too, but shouldn't be an issue with MicroSD) and less RAM. But if you can get it for about 3000 CNY then it's worth it. Those specs should be more than adequate for most general use. I know someone who works for Samsung, I'll ask their opinion about it tomorrow. Wow, them side bezels tho: It looks taller than the Note 3.
