Samsung Galaxy S5 review: Fab Five

Samsung Galaxy S5 review: Fab Five - read the full textEvery time the Samsung Galaxy S counter flips a digit, the world is getting ready to be amazed. The lineup that stood up to the iPhone and has been pulling Android to the very top of the food chain, is under new leadership effective last month...


Sort by:

I don't think they account for the auto brightness feature with the S4, Note 3, or S5 in which sunlight legibility increases significantly.

The only true "bad" thing I see is that they stuck to 2GB of ram. Not a huge deal. But when the Note 3 offers 3gb, they sell 3gb chips to others like Sony and so forth, and they have 4GB chips releasing soon...Why did they stick to the 2gb??

Other than that way better than people gave it credit for.
I would however love to see Samsung move back to dual speaker set up. Or even be among the few to use quad. And be among the first to make sure each individual speaker is a top performer.

One last part. I commend them for how clean the audio is. However while volume levels are not bad why are they not better? Even on the Note 2 you can increase the volume of speaker and headphone quite a bit without major loss. So even if they only increase it some it would still remain amazing. Especially with those wonderful wolfsan chips.

That's about as smart as people that claim something is better/better quality just because it costs more.

Think more logically.

Didnt talk about the overpricing , todays trend in smart phones is not the features but the price . Secondly design isnt such a great improvement either , Quite frankly this is the worst looking flagship around . The only advantage i can see in this phone is the removable battery . Good review though , covered almost everything but so many superlatives used .

After reading this little lot - it's a better piece of kit than I originally thought.
Need to have a hands-on - but living in Canada - I won't hold my breath :'S

The s5 is seriously overpriced in India@51500. The note3neo is a good 19k below that. The heart rate monitor is actually a joke.
