Kelly, 13 May 2014is it true that after some time a samsung handset will slow down considerably, start lagging a... moreIn comparison, the slow down is very similar depending on use. I say it depends on use because if the user knows what apps not to use then both phone will not be slow for the 2 or 3 years during the contract. I would say the worse problem is in the battery. Both phones after about 1.5 years will have bad battery life due to battery deteriorating. However, iPhone battery cannot be changed by user whereas Samsung's battery can be swapped for about 5-30 dollars.

There's nothing in writing saying a manufacturer must wait x amount of time before releasing a new one

As for now the best phones that i could advice is nokia more consisntent but limited and sony sonys updates adresses issues and bugs they consistently have their maintenance updates specialy for their flagship devices. Htc, samsung, and lg are not goodon updates though they release early updates it dose not polish its updates resulting for their phones performance to be badly affected same issues in laptop quality is also a main issue here.
Kelly, 13 May 2014is it true that after some time a samsung handset will slow down considerably, start lagging a... moreI had the Galaxy 1 and it stopped working at around month 22. I now own Galaxy S3 on month 22 and it just started slowing down and not responding like it used to. I do love my galaxy but the life span of less than 2 years makes me question if I should buy a different phone this year.

Samsung are very good at marketing, sell you phones which at the begining are very good but always seem to let you down after a year or so. iphones tend to last you for decades
My S4 is starting to disappoint me, growing bloatwares and slowing down in browsing. I might switch to BB or Apple.
[deleted post]Well, I do like metal. Although there may be better material depending on the application (composite materials are usually better for most of the things) the truth is our senses perceive the feeling of solid metal as being better than all else -- and being premium is also about meeting those expectations.
"Tin cans" are actually made of Alu, but because of their lake of rigidity and proper workmanship they are hardly premium... But then again, you can take carbon and see it in garbage, carbon fiber and even diamonds.
Are you stating that carbon fiber is a bad material or that diamonds are not premium? I guess not... cause that argument is just silly.

is it true that after some time a samsung handset will slow down considerably, start lagging and freezing up compared to an iphone?
This is what most people are telling me
spase, 13 May 2014I actually thought the s5 was the premium version seeing as it is their flagship.
If what yo... moreAlthough I do get the frustration (would be happy in that situation), I just don't see how you may take legal action against Samsung. There simply aren't any grounds for any claim.
There's no contract to say *how long* it had to be a flagship. When Samsung advertised it as "flagship" it was (and still is the "flagship"). The S5's Samsung may sell today still are flagships -- and will be until they get replaced by some other newer model, like all else.
Technology gets replaced very fast, everyone and their dogs know that. If you took this to court you would be the laughing stock. Sad but true.

Sa... morewhy so upset about this? i mean come on, most people already know there will be many version of S5. all you have to do is just wait until they release of it then decide which you want later, the problem is people can't wait and this what you got. so blame yourself not the company, they try to make everyone happy. and so do you, since you already got a S5.
And the giants come crushing the release day press line of small companies like Moto.. xD
Not surprised. Come on, Samsung has to respond to the G3 threat.
Rich nerds will will be all over the new G3 and S5 Prime, poor nerds are waiting for the OnePlus One, while your average nerd is waiting for the Nexus 6.
uh oh did I just rock the boat? Opps!
My sympathy to the millions of customers who recently bought the "new" Galaxy S5. Samesung has just released an even more high-end device, thereby betraying these S5 users who thought they were getting the best Samesung had to offer. Maybe the heart rate sensor was for anger management.
It will be interesting to see how many of these premium devices continue to receive updates, given the high prices paid and the expectation of continued product support. Always looking after their customers Sammy....
Anomynous, 13 May 2014jokes on you, the CEO said they will not launch a PREMIUM version, and they will not, its true... moreYeah I don't understand what the fuss is about S4 also got a S800 version last year. Cant it be a high end Tizen phone by the way I mean the Wave family had metal build and were cheaper then corresponding androids. For tizen to make a dent it must be on more powerful hardware to make people chose a newer OS.
