Well after using this exynos version for 1month my honest opinion.
1. Its superb phone for the price u get.
2. I have personally checked my fon through all the benchmarks i know n got highest scores in all EXCEPT graphics related tests.
3. Has some overheating issue with battery drainage but quite ignorable.
4. Screen is brilliant n vibrant.
5. Camera is the best one i have seen till now in any phone EXCEPT nokia lumia 1020.
6. I exchanged my xperia z1 for this fon n truly satisfied.
7. Looks cheap in photos but quite elegant to hold it in public..seriously ul get looks n ppl will ask u about ur fon(from personal xperience im saying)
8. Clean ur RAM as often u can n ul hardly see any lags or heating.
9. GUI sucks a bit...quite laggy n gimmicky..
10. Fingerprint scanner quite effective though not as much as iphone5s(personaly tested).
11. Exynos is ok but i wish it had adreno.
12. Battery life is quite good if u use properly. I get 16-17hrs wid quite hectic use.
Anyways i can go on n on...so lastly i would say those who are complaining about this phone either havnt used it personaly or anti samsung ppl or have bought some other fon n repenting now to not have bought this flagship. Dont listen to them. Buy it..use it...ul know im right.I am no Samsung fanboy. Im using samsung after galaxy s2-htc incredible s-blackbery torch 9810-iphone 5-xperia zr-xperia z1-galaxy s5. N i am satisfied with the price im gettin it.

why Samsung hesitates to release its Snapdragon version of S5 in India alone or am i mistaken?

Half of the people working in the Store aren't sure if the phone is a octa core variant or Snap dragon variant :/

If yes there is a fix.

Samsung thinks Indians are fool.In Europe and American market this mobile sold with Qualcomm snapdragon 801 processor but in Indian market this mobile sold with cheap Exynor processor.
Goodbye Samsung.

Still using since two months, it has neither heating issue, nor any problem respectively. Looks nice display (I preferred Adapt Display or Cinema Mode, depends on user choice) and good performance. Touchwiz is somehow okay with new user interface on GS5 but I am using home replacement launcher because I donít like Touchwiz so far. Frequently clean the recent applications (press left button), memory clean up, catch clean for free of junk files (installs cleaner apps e.g. Clean Master) etc. Disable apps, if donít use. It can be checked on the website for tips and tricks and getting more information of the device to handle with care.

I don't feel its worth to buy a high end mobile without warranty, if anything goes wrong you will end up paying a hefty amount for servicing.
