I'm thinking to purchase the s5 but I'll purchase the black version. Yes the polycarbonate is great. It's really durable. My phone has taken a fall atleast 15 times but just has only A little cosmetic damage.
I just like the black phone and white accessories. The s5 charcoal Black has a soft touch feel which I like over the tough feel of shimmery white version. That's my own preference though.

Their polycarbonate is great quality despite what people are saying for bashing.
I got the white since black wasn't in stock 2 days after release here..
- we have to understand that its not the handset that has problems
its the user it self

Tcool, 17 May 2014FM is only optional, it is not a requirement. You can always install radio app.Who said you can install hardware?

I think it is only the back cover that is blue, but the bezel in front is black?
Unlike the white, the bezel is also white.

I've read that in various reviews and also felt in real life. The white and golden have same feel and and black and Blue have same finish.
The feels are not vastly different but they are different. The white one is more solid and black is more soft.
For the color, it's subjective I guess. I had an xperia u white before and it smudged line anything. After 5 months it wasn't even white. After that I decided to never get white.
Have a nice day

The black one h... morei think the colour preference is very objective, everyone has different taste towards it. how is white looks more plastic-ish and feels softer when they're both made of the exact same plastic? I owned a white note before and it didn't turn brown or yellow after two years of use, plus the white colour of s5 is not exactly white, it's more like cream or very light beige. the perforated back is also very good at rejecting stuff and it won't get dirty so easily. i've also seen many reviews saying white one looks better. i think white looks more refreshing and clean and black kinda exaggerates the dimples on the back. i think black one is also very nice especially it integrates well with the display on the front, honestly i had a hard time choosing the colour of my s5, but personally i like the white one more.
Mohamed, 12 May 2014Guys, do i go for samsung S5 or iphone 5s?In my opinion ofcouse s5

This phone is kinda meh. Samsungs UI still sucks (settings has 9!!! categories) and there is lots of stuff that you don't want, but Samsung things you need. It's still a nice phone I guess, it doesn't disappoint, but it doesn't amaze either. I'm sad that the fingerprint sensor doesn't act as password manager. Right now it's pretty useless.
+ nice screen
+ nice camera
+ battery life is average, but can be swapped
+ water resistant (haven't flushed it down the toilet like some youtubers, but nice to have)
+ 50GB dropbox storage for 2y
- Samsungs horrendous software
- butt ugly silver frame (sure to look even uglier after some wear)
- 1000 settings/gimmicks, but no real fine tuning of crucial things
You won't do wrong buying this and if you like Samsung, go for it. If it wasn't for Sony's absolutely atrocious and uncaring customer service, I would've gone for an Xperia Z2. But Samsung it is....

I currently using note 3 but if a free wifi not too strong then cannot get any. I want to try S5. Ill try if good in wifi connections. Hope so.
Jonathan , 14 May 2014is the back cover of the Samsung galaxy s5 ugly?trust me it's not ugly and it looks especially good in white, it's extremely capable at rejecting fingerprints and scratches, I didn't like the design at first but now i think it isn't too bad.
