and i find it lagging.Even after rooting and removing bloatwre apps the phone still lags.
now i shifted to snapdragon variant and it much faster.
you can buy through ebay if u want snapdragon variant.

hello guys
exynos galaxy s5 is very laggy everywhere.

it has beaten snapdragon variant on benchmarks but it is not a good choice.

it is good to buy the snapdragon variant.its a quad core and will receive lollipop updates then and then.

whereas exynos s5 wont be receiving lollipop right now ,it will takes several months for it to come.

Snapdragon variant has lots of custom roms...
there are more developers who only develop new roms for g900f snapdragon variant.

the exynos variannt has only 2 roms.

Best camera phone .i think almost near to 808 pureview.s health also is very interesting. one can try to increase foot steps and compete with global stds and burn the calories as a protection to keep the sugar value under control.kindly inform regarding SAR value body. Is it within norms? In India EU has to be chosen pl ?

Do not mislead the public.

Here are the advantages of S5 Exynos version which is NOT present in the Snapdragon variant:

1. More powerful cpu. The HMP 5422 is around 20% more powerful than snapdragon 801.

2. Faster RAM. Exynos s5 has 933 mhz ram over 800 mhz of snapdragon version.

3. Much better DAC. Exynos s5 has wolfson DAC which will provide a much better sound output over snapdragon s5 which has qualcomm DAC.

4. Full UHS I speed support.: The exynos s5 supports full class 10 ultra sd card speeds upto 70 MB/S which qualcomm doesn't.

5. More internal memory. It has 11.5 GB free whereas snapdragon version has 10 GB free.

6. Better ram management: exynos s5 has around 300 mb more free ram over snapdragon s5.

7. Exynos 5422 has the capability to supports hardware-assisted visualization, Snapdragon 801 does not have this.

8. Exynos powered Galaxy S5 is more power efficient, as during low work load it can only use its Little cores to save battery juice, Snapdragon variant does not have that option.

9. Feels faster and is more smoother

The S5 is said to be a very strong smartphone from the get-go but since week I saw something on Youtube which really surprised me. An ultimate water test was done on the S5, first in a pool for 1 hour which it easily passed. Then it was placed in a washing machine.

Check out the ultimate S5 water test here:

. Always wondering why they have to change, when the perfect
Formulae was found in a 4.7inch perfect screen,
And they dont add on the super features of 2.7khz octa core
Replaceble battery, and m sd cdcard for us S2 lovers.
