Alleged metal frame of Samsung Galaxy S5 pictured - read the full textAdd this to the list of "maybe, but maybe not" rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S5. Leaked images show a metal frame for a smartphone, allegedly the Galaxy S5. The frame measures 143.8 x 72.3mm, compared to 136.6 x 69.8mm for the current Galaxy S4 and 151.2 x 79.2mm for the Galaxy Note 3. This,...

just look at z1 and crash test/water resistancy.
what matters is durability in real life.
who cares about looks -just buy cover or sticker,
but compare specs and price.(cheap 64gb,projector,pen whatever)

I love the fact that Samsung are now planning to use metal on their phones rather than plastic!

I love my S4, not a problem with it but i don't like the plastic, it makes it feel tacky compared to other top end phones, such as the Xperia Z, HTC One, And all iPhones, are made with metal. Samsung should join in with this, it would make their users so much happier.

But, on another note, it's only been 6 months since the release of the S4, Surely it's too early to be working on the S5?

the most expensive part of the Galaxy S5 would be the tiny "SAMSUNG" logo.. that cost more than $200 added value to the phone

people are just scared of newer tech this site makes me feel!
people told the same thing about note3 being too big simply because the screen size was comparatively bigger while note2 and 3 have an almost same body size
if anyone is against development in any field, you are welcome to leave
go buy a nokia 3310 with a tiny screen and enjoy

Samsung should not go for larger screen anymore. Note series is there for this purpose. continue at 5 inch and make with metallic body with killer specs. I am sure Samsung will continue to dominate in smartphone market with this.

The power and volume keys are in the wrong place comparing to all of Sammy's previous Galaxy's to sate. So, I have to call BS on this one :)

Whats the matter with u all Size haters ????
If u have really problem with that ! Then u shoud tell those Tv brands who r making their screen larger month by month like 80 90, inch display n much more

so wakeup guys n leave them what they r making bcz they r not fools ,they r highly qualified technicians n intelligent peoples who r making new models months by months

so let them do what they doing .if u have some problem then go make mobiles by urself ....

Actually this is not even inovation if this is s5.. to big.. I really like the S4 thu including the size.. I also got Lg g2 already prove that they can make 5.2 display almost s4 size but i feel g2 is to big in hand.. I hope s5 will be the same size of s4 with a said 5.3 display because its possible in 2014 flagship..and not this huge size almost note 3 dimensions..

actually you have to turn the frame the other way. volume rocker wrong side supposed to be on the left and power on the right. camera hole just switched to leftside.
