But not only I find my P780 to be that smooth, it also has sturdy built and lagging free...
Guys you may not satisfied with new features but open up your eyes. This is the best phone in market now, Just give correct rank fot the phone. It had all the features that a phone could have with latest hardware.

Plastic does not heat up as fast or retain the heat as long.
4k video. iso cell camera. 128gb sd support.
And the chip is more than just the same and .2ghz higher. Then entire bus speed is increased. Gpu is clocked around 128mhz her, and memory bandwidth is clocked a good bit higher as well.
Not to mention the much brighter display that can get a lot dimmer as well. So far I have seen it rated as 500nits. And that's probably not it's auto brightness rating either.
USB 3.0? Slightly improved battery and probably efficiency. The ultra power saving mode.
Easily guarantee that it also has improved speaker and DAC.
So......???? Try again?

Phone seems to be a good innovation over S4
Consumers seeking product for good use a bit cheap and also with good specs.....
This phone has it all.. Pricing we will see...
But what will you do by having a big screen difficult to carry and if someone wants one you can have note...
2GB enough to support this phone.... Increase the RAM price increases....
UHD(2K) no use hardly able to differentiate any pixel lag in daily use in S4.... almost same density...
why Aluminium body? Apple finding it very difficult to sell products as this body cost a lot not for Indians... aluminium body
you have water and dust resistance
You have all bit of small feature you require in daily life........ Better than S4 atleast...
A must upgrade from my almost 7 months old S4
one of the worst designs ever no or slight modifications in specs but loaded well with bloated features stupid phone I was hoping to buy it but now I wont instead ill wait for htc and lg

Many people really don't aware why they want created
Arman Zekavat, 27 Feb 2014Plastic ? Again? its not acceptable from Samsung. what they are thinking about? :|No matter what it is made of you will still cover it, so what is the big deal being plastic.
Wisdom, 27 Feb 2014We are at the verge of smartphone maker should stop making hefty profit from each unit sold. ... moreGreat! this is why I'm stick to only flagship phone. My S3 never failed once yet since the beginning. This S5 is great and I gonna skip S4 for this one

For Samsung Galaxy fans I think the Galaxy J with 3gb ram is a better alternative.Seriously the only advantage S5 has over J is that it has a 16MP rear camera over 13MP rear camera in J,their front facing cameras are same 2MP ones,and about their processors,I don't think 200Mhz is a quite a big difference.One can easily overclock Galaxy J processor to 2.5Ghz.And for people who are least bothered about brand appeal the 32Gb Gionee E7 LTE with 3Gb ram,16MP rear camera 8MP front camera and 2.5Ghz processor is a much better option.
salman abbas, 27 Feb 2014Shame on you gsmarena reviewers and voters... I can understand that you give less than 4 point... moreGuess most expect MUCH better before announced.
Jst a comparison "Mother tell U tat Father will give a car on U'r b'day, but U get only bicycle as refresh from U'r old one with facelift features." Wat do U say?
Galaxy S5 still the best....
Nice Super Amoled screen is overkill TFT's Sony screen.
Shame on you gsmarena reviewers and voters... I can understand that you give less than 4 points for the design of the S5 but less than 5 points for features and performance, I really don't understand on what basis you've rated S5's features and speed... It has got the latest snapdragon with 2gb ram, adreno gpu.. clocked even higher the Z2 and tons of features that touchwiz always offer... and mind you that S5 is the first and only device til now to offer finger print sensor and heart rate monitor... On the other hand you're rating Z2 with 9+ points in features and performance, and here even though S5 has 90% same hardware as Z2, you're rating it less than 5... On what basis gsmarena.. It's clear here that you're being biased here... What a shame
