Samsung's flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone has been around for a while now so here's where we look at five things we want from the next model, the Galaxy S6. See also: 31 best smartphones: The best phone you can buy in 2014.

Whether you've got a Galaxy S5 or have passed on this model, naturally thoughts turn to what's next from Samsung. Things move quickly in the technology industry, especially in smartphones, so we're looking ahead to the Galaxy S6 which will presumably go against the iPhone 6 and others. Here's where you can find out first about the Galaxy S6: Samsung Galaxy S6 launch live video stream: Unpacked 2015 at MWC.

Samsung Galaxy S6: Build quality

The biggest downfall of the Galaxy S5 for us (not just us) is its plastic cheap and nasty build quality. It really isn't good enough for a high-end, flagship, premium smartphone - especially when you compare it to devices like the HTC One M8. We want Samsung to up its game on this front with the Galaxy S6 (it seriously needs to). Give us some metal please!

Samsung Galaxy S6: Battery life

The Galaxy S5 doesn't have appalling battery life and the Ultra Power Saving mode is handy. However, it doesn't have wireless charging and we still want more battery life as standard. Hopefully the Galaxy S6 (and other upcoming handsets) can provide it with some new technology.

Samsung Galaxy S6: 64-bit

The Galaxy S5 not having a 64-bit processor wasn't a massive deal but we certainly want to see it in the Galaxy S6. Qualcomm has announced its 64-bit Snapdragon 810 and 808 chips so there's really no excuse on this front. The new version of Android (4.5 or 5.0 Lollipop) is likely to support 64-bit.

Samsung Galaxy S6: Pump up the res

Ok, Samsung has announced the Galaxy S5 LTE-A for Korea which does have a Quad HD screen (or 2K). However, this won't be launching in the UK and therefore we want and expect the Galaxy S6 to have a 1440 x 2650 resolution screen. The LG G3 already has one.

Samsung Galaxy S6: Bend me, break me (not the latter)

It might be too early but we can always dream. Samsung has been showing off bendy screen tech for a while but we've only seen it put into the somewhat bizarre Galaxy Round. What we what, ideally from the Galaxy S6, is a flexible design and not just for the fun of it. A phone which can flex to avoid breaking or even roll up would be amazing.
