Samsung Galaxy S5 to withstand the elements

Samsung Galaxy S5 to withstand the elements - read the full textRumors out of Korea indicate that base version of the next iteration of Samsung's Galaxy S flagship line, the Galaxy S5, will come with dust and water resistance. This is similar to the strategy incorporated by Sony in its flagship models like the Xperia Z1, and would be a logical move by Samsung...

I really hope there will be a Galaxy F. A Galaxy phone with metal casing would be pure perfection.

All this moaning of who copied who is just getting stupid.

If companies were not allowed to integrate ideas that other companies use then the world would be rules by 1 company who got there and used every idea first.
Even at that when ever an idea is used in more than 1 piece of technology surely we benefit from having the choice of what to buy rather than if you want 'example tech' then you have to get this specific device.

Quit the moaning, get a grip and be thankful for having the choice unlike alot of other people.

Moreover its not abt copying anything from anyone, its about giving something extra watever has been created already.
FTR: First cellular phone was created for military by Motorola, So everyone is basically copying Motorola.

And wat are you Samsung brand ambassador. It became leader just 2 yrs back, Nokia ruled for more than 12 years. Lets see how long so Called SAMSUNG can sustain the position.

Seriously, you people I don't think have any type of education nor common sense. On the topic of copying again, let's just say every other company is copying Samsung's large screen size... oh no..

All high-end mobiles should have this feature, the tech is there and they already cost a bit so makes sense. Plenty of times mobile's will be used outdoors in the rain, it is sensible for all top models

I would rather sacrifice the waterproof thing for a removable battery unless the S5 can somehow have a battery life that's as good as the Note 3 or better.

The first step Samsung should take is go for a totally new design. Enough of the recurring, boring design.
