After my bad experience in Samsung Galaxy S4, the unit get extremely hot and the battery become swollen, and even charging time on USB is very very slow, .Also MMC issues every time I connect my mobile to laptop the laptop hang than I discover that the problem is from the MMC.
Therefore I don’t recommend any body to buy Samsung mobile there is a lot of other brands 100 times better than Samsung mobile like HTC one LG G2 Xperia Z2.
Samsung are number one in marketing only……………….

All of you note that this phone is a US version with a Snapdragon 801 chipset. The version sold in south Asia is the lousy Samsung home grown chipset which has piss poor performance. Samsung does this everytime. They release a phone in the US with a good chipset and mislead others in other countries to save $$. I burnt my fingers on the GS III, become cautious afterwards.

It does have the best display though. And best all around camera only beaten in photos and only by 8o8 and 1020.

Try using them and telling the truth next time.

A person who is still stuck with 3 year old model cant say anything about the latest technology. And for your kind information, S5 is the strongest of all galaxy S series. Wake up dude you are in 2014 not in 2010.
