So basically another S5 with a new chipset, QHD display and Advanced LTE for almost 80% more price, WOW.

Unfortunately this is likely what we'll have to expect in the galaxy note 4.
QHD is unnecessary, they need to focus on improving battery life and adding more internal storage

HTC and LG are working on their own "Primes" the 801 chipset is not powerful enough to run 1440P.. Early test show the 801 in the G3 to run slower than a G2.. High-Res needs High-Power..thus, the step up to the Snapdragon 805 chipset. It's not about Metal Chassis or LTE-A.. it's about getting a properly powered a 1440P 5.5" 538ppi display to market.. The 805 was designed to do just that.. the 801 in the G3 was not.

samsung should've lanched the GS5 LTE in a metal body
that would've been a hit

People complained about G3's QHD screen on a 3000mah battery..
Just wondering about this fellow QHD on a 2800mah battery.. SMH

This is just how I expected the original GS5 to be, but what about this metal phone?

Releasing a new version doesn't make the old less functional, it just means there is something better. Is there even anything on this new phone that you want? Also it's currently only available in Korea.

Wow, 0,01 ms response time. It seems that samsung has finally understood that this feature is essential for a good phone. For the other specs no words, the top of the tecnology avaliable nowadays. So why releasing the first s5? That's a mystery..

People moving to LG are probably fedup with Samsung's shenanigans.
