J, 11 Mar 2014Z2 will do, it's a smartphoneGood for you!
But for me, I don't need built-in radio, I prefer the internet radio app because I can tune in to my country's FM radio and be updated with my country's news even if I am in foreign lands.
Built in radio cannot update me of my country's news when I travel in foreign country.

And bluetooth headset is better than the messy wired headset required to activate the phone's radio.

Tcool, 11 Mar 2014Then Bluetooth headset with FM radio is for you. Rather than insisting it to be in the phone. Yeah we better have other brand who understand most of people really need.
The Galaxy Note 3 is the best phone out there...
There is just no point in upgrading to the s5...

I will embrace cloud services and everything online as long as they make data connection unlimited and cheap. We are still not there. Maybe you guys has lighting fast connections that's why you can say this stuff, you can never understand us who have poor and limited connections.

The focus has sh... morePeople should obsolete things if there is a "better in every aspect" replacement for it. Yes internet radio is better than FM but FM still has uses. Unlike a floppy disk being replace by CD, CD is better in every aspect than floppy disk, it is cheaper and can contain more data. Internet radio requires expensive data plans that has monthly bandwidth limitations, and not all areas has good internet connection specially when you are travelling, you will loose what you are listening when the connection is lost.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2014Lol! yet another wanna be geniusDo you have a better and more educated guess or just like denying reality?
The focus has shifted to wireless, FM needs a fairly large wired antenna accessory to be connected to the phone. -- What's there to miss?
You could at least say they could try delaying the inevitable by still designing the phone so that 3rd party ear buds could still act as a FM antenna, but then again, that's not understanding that their agenda has really shifted to new wireless accessories -- that goes against keeping alive a reason to stick to wired (the irony of the fact is that you would be sticking to obsolete wired accessories so that you could get a wireless broadcast that is readily available with something else much more efficiently than with those accessories + mobile phone).

You are the only smart one, my point exactly Samsung has something up it's sleeve and I bet TIZEN is one of them.
Better wait for Pantech Vega Iron 2.It would be launched with a snapdragon 805 processor and much more powerful Adreno 420 GPU.
i expect s5 is better thn all other s series..
i like to use this,...
