Your TAB in the LTE spectrum indicate the actual frequencies stop using (market dependent) for your S5
owner of S1 gt 9ooo and S2 and please may I remind you that your S5 are being sold in MALTA EURO 699 are they not expensive when it only cost you to produce
EURO 182 sorry but I am one of your greatest fans but now they are beyond my financial level.

Yes! Thats exacly what i was talking about. The Galaxy S5 is IP67 certified. Htc one (M8) and iphone is not. Yes, its made of plastic, but that just means it wont get any scratches and its lighter. It feels better in the hand too and wont slip like the htc. The iphone design is good but the screen is a bit small.
I dont even care about some numbers in a benchmark test. I want a phone that is easy to use, have a good camera, screen, battery (replaceable) and a ui that responds fast. Galaxy S5 does that.
Teh Acorn, 16 Apr 2014Why do I have the feeling that Tizen will bomb just like Bada did?Because nobody buys a smartphone (a tablet or a computer) just to look at "how pretty" the OS is. The whole purpose of a smartphone is to take advantage of an App ecosystem, which is intrinsically limited to what is available for that platform.
That's where any newcomer is always at a severe disadvantage.
Look at how much Microsoft has struggled to put their mobile OS through the paces... and that was Microsoft, the software giant that has a multitude of 1st party and 3rd party developers behind it!
Teh Acorn, 16 Apr 2014Why do I have the feeling that Tizen will bomb just like Bada did?No buddy!! Tizen Will not sell well. As everyone knows about samsung with bad support in BADA OS. A sad bada owner!!

There are many factors such as design and build quality (as well as build materials), apart from performance.
Speaking of performance, it couldn't even beat iPhone 5s in a lot of benchmark tests, a phone that is already half a year old. The A7 chip really took everyone off guard. In fact, the HTC One M8 handily beat the SGS5 in those tests too.
A good phone? Certainly. Without a doubt the best phone? That's taking it too far.
Its hard to say how well it will sell, but it is without a doubt the best phone out there at the moment. I have the shimmery white and it looks awesome. It fits perfectly in my hand. The screen and camara is really impressive. There is no lag, apps open in no time.

samsung khan, 16 Apr 2014Samsung customers are replied the critic by sales u can trow any on Samsung but Samsung still ... moreSamsung Khan, what about if the sales are not good?
I expect a rejuvinated G Note 4 wth metalic body ad 4k resolution. mostly people get fed up of same stero type models overlaping each other, neo mini & pro are always wth a flagship model. At times we ur self forget what model do we hav. lastly its high time sammy shud change appearance to bada phones. solid bussiness look ? lke sony htc nokia or other chinese. Now if its a small perk over note 3, it is going to back fire. My outrages cry to update tab 10.1 note ad s4 ace3 etc to upgrade. This shows that once bought upgrade is forgotten. lok at note 3 price 650$
Mmm it will be interesting to see what tizen will bring to the smartphone market, new devices and operating system are always welcome.
A new Note this year, with a new "form factor"? I'm intrigued. Expecting the foldable display Samsung presented some time ago is probably just my hopes aiming too high, but one does have the right to dream, right? Come on Sammy, show us something unconventional instead of the usual disappointment.

Go Samsung go
"No longer content with packing in gimmicky features (the S5 packs only 40 preinstalled apps compared to the 50 on the S4)"
ONLY? I'd expect an impartial website to joke about this fact, but I suppose I'm looking in the wrong place.
Eske Rahn, 16 Apr 2014Did I just read ONLY 40 pieces of bloatware ??? Am I supposed to laugh or cry? Manufacture... moreMy N4 with CM11 has exactly 30 pre-installed apps. That means samsung apps on the S5 are only 10, this is tbh quite good, especially since some of them might be useful, like the app store and S-voice.

Optional extras should be the norm, not fixing an extra app store along with the Google one.
