for 700 expensive phone I would expect at least metal, not cheap colored plastic. DISAPPOINTED.

It turns the screen to grayscale limits the usage of the phone to basic services only while drastically improving the battery life, for every 10% of your current battery life you get day and a half of estimated usage left. I just turned on the feature on my S5 just to give you an example (75% battery life translates to 9.5 days of estimated usage left).

Overall, I am using the S5 for 2 months now, and I must admit it is by far the best phone at the moment for it's current price/performance ratio.

Go for it!

For example, your S5 might be down to 15% battery but you need to check something and at the same time! worried that the battery may run out. On a normal phone, 15% of battery gets you around 5 mins of use. Ultra Power saving lets you browse the web and make phone calls for up to 30 mins at 5% battery.

Power Saving mode is not a hype gimmick :3
base on my experience, having my sg s5 for 4months, its a life saving app that keeps me connected 24/7. Yah its gonna get ur screen black and white and limited apps to be used, buts its worth the use.

Hi everyone, can a real time user of s5 tell me what exactly that ultra power saving feature is all about? How does it work, how much influence does it have as to improving on battery live? or is it another overhyped gimmick from samsung?

samsung s5 price start first do drop in India market,hugely price drop there about 105 euros,soon will be globally drop i think (about months and half or 2 months later).Samsung company must drop the price because the galaxy alpha is coming.Remember this is the first year that samsung introduce 2 smartphone(galaxy alpha and samsung s5).Because of that reason samsung s5 price will start to drop early,even more with new samsung s6 next year (Februar 2015).
Wait a litle those who wanna to buy a samsung s5!

> In reply to Brentzilla @ 2014-09-15 02:11 from q985 - click to readGo for G3. I'm not disappointed by it. Runs everything very smooth. The camera! i didn't succeed to take good photos in the night, but on daylight they are awesome. The filming is good for my standards. Charging takes 1 hour to charge from electrical network, and all most 2'30" on USB from PC. I had an S4 for almost a year. It was very good but i wanted to buy the new S5, but then came the G3 in my country with a promotion including G Pad 7.0 V400 for 585 Euro (In Romania). I was very pleased when i got it. Not once i had a problem with it since 2 month's ago. I have the 32 GB, 3 GB RAM version. So yes, i say that you should go for G3 because it feels very goo in hand, and looks and acts like a smartphone.

Snapdragon 801 with Adreno 400 doesn't exist. It is still an Adreno 330.

This is after all a Samsung opinions list isnt it.. you probably have a shitty m8 and your not happy.. btw guys I had my GS5 since May and it never lets me down. Go samsung just hope the GS6 comes with 4k display.. GS5 has the best optimised screen with the most vivid colours.. m8 is a small boy in expensive clothes while the GS5 is a beast without the expensive metal ect.. plastic feels better in the hand anyway and its lighter..

I'm an Iphone advicate. Bought 2 galaxy S5 phones. Am paying plenty over 20 months for them. Mine downloaded 3112 factory pics and videos that I didn't take. Replaced phone. It's been a couple months since I downloaded any of my pics, but today I had another 100 or so pics that aren't mine. Am I the only one... What else is odd... Me & my husband have the same phone. But they work quite different. I only changed mine after 3 weeks of purchase. WTH!
