I'm never buying another Samsung while they release improved versions of their flagships just a couple of months after launch. What a way to annoy customers.

Well the Quad HD display is nice. but there's no point of buying this, if your country or your network carrier doesn't offer LTE-A.

This is exactly why I don't buy Samsung their phone is outdated after 4 months. They need to release 1 flagship phone that's why it called flagship shouldn't have to keep changing it to get more sales

According to me enough to negate all the milliseconds that you will save by using 225Mbps instead of 100Mbps :) moreover this speed up is as owned via aggregating several frequency bands. Now what is the chance that all these bands are going to be free for you to use? very little if you are living on cities like Seoul and in rural areas no one will deploy additional bands at this stage...

Speed always matter. If u can have 255mbps rather than 100mbps, why reject the faster one?

Let say u load a 60mb video from youtube, it takes around 2sec with 255mbps speed but 5sec for 100mbps. U save 3sec in your life just for buffering alone. Time is gold buddy.

Imagine loading a heavy page takes less than a millisec? Awesome right? Did u ever load a 1gb website? No rite? So no issue about spending all your 1gb in less than a minute just because u hava a faster internet connection.

Who cares it's only for Korea at the moment.

If anything, only Korean S5 users should feel burned.

Everyone else shut up.

The biggest practical improvements here are the soc and cpu/gpu. The resolution bump up is the icing on the cake but the lte speed amp isn't exactly spectacular. And with the same battery capacity, I can only imagine just how much of a pain it would be to use at full blast.

At the moment I'm still more excited for the note 4.
