For battery Samsung Galaxy S5. This was very close indeed, the Galaxy S5 never really outlasted he HTC One (M8) by more than an hour. That's still more than nothing and the replaceable battery will be helpful for those who don't mind carryinga spare. In some regions the Galaxy S5 has wireless charging, in others a wireless charging back cover is an optional accessory.To be fair, most people don't have a spare battery and very few use wireless charging. The battery life of the HTC One (M8) by itself is very good – almost as good as that of the Galaxy S5. For the battery the s5 takes it
Samsung Galaxy S5. Better sunlight legibility is the biggest contributor for the win, but details like more surface area, perfect contrast and colors, the sensitivity start to pile up quick.The HTC One (M8) certainly has a great display, let down in this head to head comparison mostly by its relatively higher reflectivity. s5 takes it when it comes to display
Anyone upgraded from S4 to S5 because i want know if screen is good in bright sunlight ,,S4 is not too bad.I dont care about colour accuracy etc for me its about sunlight legibility.As long as the screen is visibke to read a text or tweet that will do me..
I was getting a second hand Samsung S4 yesterday but had a play with one and now ordered a S5 which is on the way ..I had to order online as our Carphone Warehouse has been out of stock most of the time trying to keep up with orders,,then folk are pre ordering so stock coming in goes to them..They had some blue in but I wanted white.Either S5 is selling well or there is limited stock or our Carphone Warehouse is just not getting enough stock in.
Tcool, 07 May 2014I am not using the phone mobile data Internet.
I connect it to:
-Huawei 4G mobile WiFi when ... moreAre you in UK?
Our 4g is just around big citys and way off big coverage..Some folk are using a MI-FI connected to the Three network to get decent speeds even tho only HSDPA+ some are getting 20Mb/s download from the MIFI..I am on Three network HSDPA+ but get maximum of 5 Mb/s download in my town...
What I am getting at is UK is small island and fairly rich yet compared to some poorer countrys we are miles behind in speed and network coverage,,although they say they have 98% coverage there are thousands of areas with NO signal,nothing..Since using CSD then HSCSD back in 2001 speeds where I live have been pitifull so I am looking forward to 4G..
We should have 4G by end of year where I am but will believe when I see it..The thing is that Three UK are getting better speeds on HSDPA+ than 4G speeds on other networks in most places which is bad news..
Tcool, 08 May 2014Yes but the S-view cover for S5 has a faux leather looks and feel.Actually the Note 3 and S5 Back cover is still plastic, thou it was moulded to look like leather. Now the S5 S-View case is faux leather material with actual stitching along the edges. Compare with Glossy S4 back cover, S5 back Cover look's like a big "Band Aid". Which is ok because it has a better grip.
Cyclist4Christ, 08 May 2014@ Tcool, I'll only bash the S5 if I have any problems with it.I hope you are telling the truth and will not disgrace your username.
AT, 08 May 2014Very impressive features indeed. Many of Iphone users still will not get impressed. because t... moreNot all i guess. Am an iPhone user since 2007, when my boss gave my an S4 last year i kinda like it because its very different from iPhone. So i use my S4 for work stuff and iPhone for personal use. Then i decided to get S5 two weeks ago, I still use my iPhone as my personal use. They are two Very nice and Very different phones.
@ Tcool, I'll only bash the S5 if I have any problems with it.
Tcool, 08 May 2014Not convincing enough. Try harder.Why should I try harder?? If I say I'm getting the S5, then that's what I'm getting.
13 Mega pixels camera is more than sufficient in a mobile phone. Efforts should be made to have better and better result with subject camera with good hardware and software combination like I phone 5s. Front camera must be 5 Mega pexils for better video / skype call.
So after dissing the Galaxy S5 a few times on this page, I've made up my mind that I'll be getting the S5 in a week or so... I had my eyes set on the Xperia Z2, but here in South Africa, they say that if you accidently damage your Z2, Sony won't repair it.. and with the S5, apparently you can have your screen broken twice, and you get it fixed for free on both occasions.. so ya, S5 here I come.
Very impressive features indeed.
Many of Iphone users still will not get impressed. because they connected to their Iphone, like mother to children.They don't want to even hear anything better or any improvement on any aspect of other phones(it hurts them) as mothers behave to their child . like footbsll club supporters and cult members. they are connected emotionally not necasserly realistic or logical and fair.
"Their one is the best", They don't want to hear anything such as galaxy s5 is better.
I do understand mothers love to their children, if other kids praised over their kids they get somehow
hurt. they don't want to hear any more.
Such as first comment made for galaxy S5
Galaxy S5 Every thing is okay, why 4G is not support in INDIA, but samsung customer care india is assuring 110% it is 4G enabled after the software update
is it correct any one can clarify
Tcool, 08 May 2014Yes but the S-view cover for S5 has a faux leather looks and feel.Oh, that, my bad ;) It's optional tho :)
