I thnk its fair to buy a ph with so many new things. Even note 3 price is not dropping s4 is an old ph. Now so we all can expect drop in price. What samsung is offering no brand can offer. Nor can i phone it do hv limitations like limited media sharing bluetooth fixed storage. We can see a big difference comparing the screen size sure m gonna get s5 dosent matter what ll b the price 45k or 50k

Samsung is back again in there shitty business. I bought galaxy s4 gtI9500 only 5 months passed priced dropped from 41000 to 30000. As a result buy a phone of 40000+ and when u r planning to sell it u will not get the value of 20000 also. Apple is far more better than samsung. Atleast in apple the phone value doesn't drop drastically that after few months buyer need to regret for buying such a Useless high value phone which another person buying the same unit with much much less value than he bought. I will never repeat my mistake again and will always be an apple customer. Another one thing of samsung is that they increase one feature every year by naming s1,2,3,4,5 same as note series and priced it for rs 45000 then after5 or 6 months price drop by 10000+

I think it's fair & we will soon see a price drop in India . So, no need to worry.

> In reply to Bunyip22 @ 2014-03-09 05:30 from Xr$h - click to readohh.! i have purchased note 3 from DUBAI at AXIOM with warranty. Me and my friend has faced the same lag issues and i have even heard from many stating about over heating and lag issue of Note 3. My note 3 completely hangs sometimes and automatically gets rebooted if multiple apps are open. I need to clear ram always for smooth working. Even i have used all variants so don't judge anyone.

(Mine is the N9005 Snapdragon version).

Please don't order or prebook this on Samsung site. Samsung cheats by showing various colors in pre-booking but will compel you to buy white only after the launch. And you can also get 4000-5000 INR cheaper at market stores after 7 days of launch. Their prices are inflated.

Samsung has allowed third party access to the fingerprint scanner which means that, this phone isn't safe as any hacker can get an individual's fingerprint via third party apps.. Snapdragon processors are much, much better than Exynos because of better power management. Exynos processors heat too much and TouchWiz UI lags a lot with any processor, from low end phones to the high end ones because TouchWiz UI is a heavily customized interface and very resource hungry. Heart rate monitor sensor is a new for a phone but heart rate can be monitored by third party apps such as Instant Heartrate. Comparing the S5 to its predecessor, the S4, I don't see much difference in design orspecs except a few minor changes. S5 is just a minor update to S4. The design is the most boring thing about this phone. Totally unimpressed with the S5.

> In reply to ratheesh @ 2014-03-08 11:25 from uuTp - click to readi totally disagree. My note 3 lags always every time i use hi end apps or games. In fact i feel Note 2 was better in terms of lagging. Note 3 was a real disappointment in lagging and over heating. Battery life is outstanding for note 3.

> In reply to Tim @ 2014-03-08 11:29 from XMZW - click to readIndia officially has 4G in some cities, so yeah it can use some snapdragons here. Exynos killed the likes of S4 and Note 3 here because of its comparatively poorer battery performance, the inability to capture 4k videos(regarding Note 3 only, which "maybe" no big deal to some), excess heat due to switching between the 2 processors(4 primary+4 slave cores) and some other stuff i dont remember. Speaking of which other competition like HTC, Sony, LG, Cheap Chinese brands etc comes with snapdragons in India.
So I in my honest opinion say that Samsung makes donkeys out of people through the inferior exynos on the flagships here in India.
