I haven't come across a Mobile Device that doesn't get hot when watching movies on device or on the net, gaming, using WiFi for a prolong period or when charging... Remember guys it's a lot of technology packed into a enclosed compact space, with a battery...
Tony, 29 Dec 2014Does not come closer to IPhone...at all!Iphone 6 plus scores 49000 on antutu were as the s5 plus gets 52000 and iphone 6 plus gets 1700 on 3dmark and the s5 gets 2100 the same as the ipad air 2 but when playing games the iPhone will be faster due to optimisation but the 805 is faster than the a8 especially when it gets a lollipop update eg the note edge had 45000 on antutu which has a 805 and is lower because it's a 2k screen so when it gets lollipop I saw it get 50000 so yeah
Too much heating problem while watching the movies and surfing on the Internet, I have totally wasted my money..
That's a pretty good ph, i have one, and works fine, selfies under watter are pretty cool too.
I want this ph, has a great camera, and is watter proved, loved it.
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2014Radio must be built inI agree, not having an FM radio is/was a major omission.
I am a total android person but have to make the call between a Z3 which on paper is a better phone, but looks very 'consumery', and seems full of frustrating sony bloatware, and lacks the ease of use of the samsung for a business/power user and the S5 which looks like a great phone but lacks some specs of the Z3 and the fm radio on the z3. silly samsung, no wonder its been a tough year!
the phone is fantastic when it works. I am on my 3rd and trying to get out of the contract. The phone is cold sensitive, and has some sort of hardware problem that causes the screen to stay black. Nothing is more frustrating than listening to your phone ring, alert you of incoming messages and emails and even vibrate but the screen stays black. would not recommend to anyone.
Im trying to buy a samsungs branded smartphone best samsung smatphone my budget is 150 $
How can this phone have the rated performance on this site at 50% when antutu benchmark gives him the score 51000+ which is on the top of the fastest android phones
J, 20 Nov 2014No doubt iPhone will give a good experience however Samsung is not the representative of Andro... moreWOW! "not the representative of Android". serious indeed? where-in-the-world would you think is the position of Android right now, without the great, BIG push by Samsung through the Galaxy S, & Note series? If you sincerely forget, maybe because of memory loss due to your severe Obstructive Sleep-apnoea, I can certainly give you a great help on that, for I am a licensed-massage-therapist by profession, and may be able to administer sleep-management for your own good... but if you are not?, and just simply trying to act as-if you just forget, let me remind you, that Samsung, is already, and successfully existed way-before Google had been able to discover the Android robot in Japan, and bought it, then created a mobile-operating-system OUT-OF-IT!, and even before Steve Jobs was able to even think of then good iPhone, now iBend 6 Plus device!!!
