If its just a metalized version of the current plastic design then it's crap. Metal means a design and look change is absolutely needed otherwise there is little point to a metal finish.
But am betting the former is going to happen. I mean just look at that render it's utterly hilarious.
comparing samsung with htc design and hardware
HTC is still lightyears ahead in screen quality and accuracy, smoothness and interface, gigantic leap in speakers quality, design, faster updates, etc
Stupid metal body ... more radiation n not durable at all!!! Im happy with durable, light plastic but unhappy with firmware updates ( My Galaxy S3 skip 4.2 n waiting for 4.3 since august ) laggs a lot n open some apps or maps is nightmare!!! Not sure if I'll go for another Samsung or Android !!!
Mister-H, 01 Jan 2014Hope it uses the A57 A15 CPUs, Exynos 6series, and not C®apdragon™Exynos shit, no 4g, no drivers, no 4k recording, battery drain, lag. Keep quiet and stay at your desk.
Samsung Galaxy F will be announced one month after Samsung Galaxy S5 will launch cause they can't risk putting a new line in with something thats there for 5 years (at point of S5 launch) and destroy the market thats already there
So if s5 is announced in Feb and launches in March then they will announce F in April and Launch in May
I guess since the plastic ones cost a lot the metal body one will be even more expensive (hope Samsung proves me wrong cause I would like to own one).
Cenas, 01 Jan 2014Crappy software?
Crappy updates policy?
Samsung update policy not perfect but better than other android OEMs like htc lg sony huawei asus etc except motorola because moto(google) use stock android.
And android is open source OS so you can root your droid and use cooked roms from developers.i have i9000 galaxy s from 2010 with cyanogenmod 11 android 4.4!!!
Samsung phone booooooooring, all plastic body, expensive 1month use color fead...... Nothing need Samsung mobile
Anonymous, 01 Jan 2014Now people will find something else to complain about I guess. Either way still nice. Now you... moreThere is still crappy software present in all samsung devices (used one of their basic phones for a week and was raging at it) but that's why there's rooting
The only thing which ppl were complaining is being solved with this. And this news is true i think.
Waiting for haters reply as to see what they have next to complain about samsung.
Now people will find something else to complain about I guess.
Either way still nice. Now you can have metal or plastic. Both of which are preference.
