1. Samsung had water resistant phones LONG before the Xperia line
2. Apple had BLACK and WHITE for years before adding new colours recently. Samsung also had BLACK and WHITE but also sInce the GALAXY S2 added PINK and sinice the S3 have had numerous colour options

To me it rather sounds like you're being paid to advertise for Sony, especially the last part of your post (which isn't true by the way) shows that. So Samsung does not listen to its customers? Is that why they kept the removeable battery and SD slot? Redesigning touchwiz? Because no one wants either, right? S5 is the fixed and improved s4, just like any new smartphone is the fix and improvement on its predecessor.

This is the consequence of copying something successful. They're rushing everything to put the scanner even though they are still unsure of the supplier. Apple "apparently" didn't invent the fingerprint scanner on smartphone, but it became successful when they started the trend. Samsung copies every successful thing its competitors have, not to mention the water resistance of Sony Xperia and colour variants of Nokia and Apple.
Sony Xperia Z2 is the real deal today. Sony listens to consumers and fixes issues the previous generation had by applying those fixes to new flagship. Z2 is the improved and fixed Z1.

It's just there and you use it. So do some people. I rather they take that fingerprint reader off and charge users $100 less
So Samsung engineers can't make a fingerprint sensor for their own phone, and they can't produce Exynos processors for their own phone (except a few models for emerging markets, everything else uses TSMC-Snapdragon). I'm gonna get the Sony Z1 or new HTC One this year and forget Sammy.
[deleted post]Fact is not that many use iPhones too and even less (and non-existent) use WP. Most people still use Nokia 3310, just that we don't see them around so often.
Samsung should stop trying to produce to Many Models of there Smartphones,an think more of Better Quality,The Galaxy S4 was doing o.k,so they did not need to produce the Galaxy S5 so Quick,People nowdays have 2 year contracts,so alot can"t Upgrade Straight away an after there contracts are up a newer model is available,Samsung should do the same path as Apple,an wait to see if people do really need a upgraded model

Guess they are no much diff from Apple fanboys. haha
But i guess its nothing to do with fanboys. Its just normal customers are drawn to branding only.
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2014cheap advertising, the truth is that this phone is going to have a hard time selling no matter... moreThat's so not true, all people want to buy is a samsung phone, it doesn't matter how useless the phone is, they just want to buy samsung! So however a crappy phone samsung comes up with it will sell 10 million units in less than a month.... That's brand recognition!
And anyways no-one is going to use the fingerprint scanner in the long run, its more gimmicky than useful, the iPhone 5s has a more proper fingerprint scanner which will be used forever! Who will swipe their fingerprint like that, its a crazy thing, looks more of show-off than useful!
... Swipe to unlock. Yuck.
And agreed. TouchID also have rumors about being hard to make. Always take news like this with a pitch of salt.
