What do we want to see from Samsung's next big thing?

The launch of a new Samsung flagship is one of the big events in the Android calendar, accompanied by an unprecedented quantity of speculation, rumors and even the occasional leak. Though Samsung's position in the smartphone market isn't quite as dominant as it was 12 months ago, the Korean giant remains a force to be reckoned with. And its products are still the lens through which a huge number of consumers experience Android.

Last year saw Samsung release the plastic, waterproof Galaxy S5, before changing course and going metal in later months with the Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4. So with that in mind, it's time to consider what we want from the next Galaxy phone, the Galaxy S6, expected to launch ahead of Mobile World Congress on March 1.

Back in 2013, LG introduced KnockOn, the ability to double-tap on the G2's screen to unlock it. The next year, the company followed up with KnockCode, a more secure version which allowed owners of the LG G Pro 2, G3 and others to secure their devices using a pattern of taps.

This year, starting with the LG G Flex 2, the Korean company's trying something a bit different. "Glance" is a feature of the G Flex 2 that gives you a small preview of what's going on on your device, without having to turn it on.
