Yet another plastic-made?! I really don't know when is the right time for SAMSUNG to use full bezel or aluminium instead of that plastic-dot made!! Put so much high expectations to this s5 but end up dissappointment!! Now really hope note 4 will brings out the different!!
P/s: really don't understand.. Samsung is biggest company that being so counting to use aluminium or bezel much! Save cost maybe?

Andy, 18 Mar 2014Who on earth wants an actual radio receiver when you can stream audio, including radio, from t... moreMaybe those who like to listen to radio when walking when 3G reception drops, or for those who have limited data. Streaming radio uses a lot of data and I'd go over my limit easily.
I'm leaving Samsung after having my SIII for 2 years. The S4 wasn't really worth an upgrade and I feel the S5 is nothing except a big disappointment. I am not interested in a heart rate sensor- I'd never find any use for it even when I exercise, just a total gimmick. A fingerprint sensor just seems like a good excuse to get people to buy more stuff through Google and I'd not use it to unlock my phone.
That leaves the slightly upgraded camera ...naah. I'm getting a LG G2!

Isn't it better to listen to the radio free from the messy wires?
No need to put the radio in phone, it is just an option.

Useless features heart rate monitor and rumors of iris scanners? It's just a phone!!! >:( geez, them the poor folks are gonna have to be guarding their phones with their lives because it's become so personal...it was supposed to be a mere tool but they're making a part of you.
I know right..all these unnecessary features. The average person doesn't have use for all of this. I love seeing innovation go big but Ithink they're going wayyy too far
anonymous, 17 Mar 2014It depends on the phone brand
No, I don't think this is brand-specific. If a given version of Android OS does not support OTG (in this case Kitkat)..it will not support it on any brand be it Moto G or Samsung or anything else. We need clarification on this important point.
