As for the colors, they are accurate and you have several display mode settings to fit your needs if you aren't satisfied.

S5 going to get one on new contract. I have tried the phone. Personally I like the soft `touch` feel. Coming from iphone 5c I need a BIG screen. I like the square shape of the S5 Even, and probably correctly, it is back dated. And at the moment, apart from Note 4 still the high spec with 2.5 power and 2 Ram I think galaxy do shake a lot of specs and stuff at you. Waterproof, one of the best at the moment cameras. Plus apps. Dazzling screen display and if colour are not accurate who cares. I reckon in 18 months time I will not be bored with the UI,and already many tweaks and setting adjustments. IOS is great, but can be `boring` Also 5s has removable battery, takes the hassle of being at a nowhere place and re charging as buy a spare. For the contract price now, S5 has to be one of the high specced phones there.

From Philippines here...
I have my S5 Exynos version (SM-G900H), and damn, it's so good. I just don't understand why most of you experiencing lags or battery problem, and me i experienced the goodness or let's say GREATNESS of the device. I just updated my device to 5.0 Lollipop, and thank God it became more and more faster and extend it's battery life like it last more than 24 hrs, with normal-to-hard use, (consistent messaging and calls, hours of web browsing, almost an hour of online gaming, photography and social media).
Considering this is exynos, i expect the snapdragon version is the better one, maximize your device guys. The phone is so great, i assure you.

for a high end phone the s5 is a real letdown
if its not lagging, crashing or overheating its the cheap feel that'll get to you

ive had it for not even 5 months and already hate it

And my honest opinion is the galaxy s5 is not as nice as the note 2. They've seem to of dropped the ball on newer technology style phones. The new ones are slimmer and function fine but they're boring and too basic. The older phones like the note 2 have say more functions and are user friendly. The s5 is honestly a pain to use if you're into lots of features. I'd go with a note before an s5 series anyday.

I own the G900H, the octa-core version. I have no problems with it. Battery generally lasts me for more than a day. CPU is fast. I have never had to do a battery pull to fix any form of hanging problems. I have been using it since October. On average I get a lot more than 20 hours on a single charge. This morning the battery was at 50% after 21 hours 48mins of use. My usage yesterday consisted of a few phone calls, whatsapp, Facebook, photography and a social media app called waplog. No matter how hard I use my S5 it lasts for more than a day or at least more than 20 hours. It can easily last two days. To show how strong the battery is, a one hour call only uses 3% of the battery compared to my previous phone the S2 (i9100) which always used 8% of battery for a one hour call. If I don't use it heavily I'm sure it will last me for 3 days or maybe longer. The S5 battery is the best I have ever seen for an Android device. The benchmarks declares the Octa-core the fastest. I have not spent enough time with the Snapdragon version to see if it's slower or faster than the Exynos version but all I know is that my Exynos Octa-core S5 is fast, power efficient and problem free. I'm running the original OS which came with it KitKat 4.4.2 and I am sticking to it. I have heard enough horror stories about Lollipop to avoid it. So I'm good with my S5 as it is.

I like the phone itself but I get not service at all. My son has a signal everywhere we go but I normally have to walk outside. It will not text with wifi and when I am inside a building I don't have enough signal to receive a call. I didn't have these problems with the last Samsung phone I had.
