Saurav Ghosh, 02 Jun 2014What's their to see? All points will go in favour of S5, technically. One thing a review can n... moreI'm not saying that any of the s5 or m8 is better phone. THERE IS NEVER A BETTER PHONE. Can you please see what comment i replied to. He/she was an arrogant HTC fanboy saying that s5 is not even near to m8. I just showed him. It's not my opinion that s5 is better than m8 or vice versa. Both are great phones.
Now ask yourselves what do you mean by user experience. 'oh see! my device is made of metal' is certainly not user experience. Yes, the in-hand feel is important but if a person buys a fragile and beautiful phone, he'd put it in a 'plastic' case and the difference eliminates. Moreover, the s5's back feels good. Other things which shape up the user experience is how easily and how much you can get the stuff done and believe me no skin even comes close to touchwiz on functionality. I've used every android skin except for the chinese phones. Yes, those skins are faster but they don't even pack half of touchwiz's functionality. Going to the 'slowness' of touchwiz, it has reduced a lot in the new touchwiz in s5 as the skin has tonned down a lot and touchwiz is a lot lighter now. Giving you an idea, the s5 comes with 11.5 GB memory free compared to 8.9 GB of s4. It has lesser bloat than xperia z2 if you need an example from other company. Now regarding the speed, touchwiz is a lot faster than it was with s4. And if you want to make it as fast as m8, go to developer opyions and make the animation and transitions to 0.5x. This will make s5 as fast as a nexus 5. What other things define user experience. I have covered the ease of use, the in-hand feel, features. All other things you can find in the reviews.
Have a nice day
Austin martin, 03 Jun 2014i would advise you to go for S5 !Agreed!
darkgamer, 02 Jun 2014Oh really. Then see this: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s5_vs_htc_one_m8-review-1067.phps5 is still no. one!!!!
Tiger, 16 May 2014i wanna by a samsung whitch one is better Note 3 or S5 ?i would advise you to go for S5 !
Why does this phone has 2GB RAM? I have a Galaxy S2 with 2GB RAM also and I keep getting the message of low memory and it's not like aI have a lot of things installed... I wanted to upgrade to S5 but it wpould make no sense since it has the same memory. Also, all the google software s**t that comes with the phone wants to update at all times and takes a lot of memory space!! Why do they make the software so big and not improve the memory?? I don't understand...
billu, 23 May 2014I heard this phone never heats no matter how much u browse no its not true, i use this phone personally and after some game play of GTA it does get a little hot.Peace

Now I might get the S5 after all this, but I will buy it knowing the fact that I have purchased the most heavily skinned Android one will ever find. Heaviest and laggiest.
Just a good phone in that price is a amazing in choices of smart phone . It is amazing from my side.
