ProfessionalCONSUMER, 06 Mar 2015hehe..just don't get the bootloader unlocked :)By the time Samsung drops S5 support, my warranty should be over :)
422000 hits on S6 page, not bad for such an "useless phone" i guess ;)
Now waiting eagerly for first reviews to pop-up. Go GSMA
m86k, 06 Mar 2015I feel the same way. The only custom roms i try, are on chinese phones now to get.
My S5 ha... moreI really wanted to like the Transformer tablet + keyboard dock, but that storage speed was just terrible. I didn't notice the overheating that you mention. I didn't like a couple other things about it like the way the auto-brightness was abrupt and annoying.
A year later, I got the TF701, hoping it would be a winner. I bought a Note 10.1 2014 at the same time and compared them side-by-side. The Note blew away the TF701 in 3D graphics speed, almost twice the framerate at the same 2560x1600 resolution. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a single person online that would root the TF701 and install the app that shows you your framerate, then play some games and see how it performs. I did exactly that and posted a bunch of screenshots and stuff, but no one seemed to care.
I was dumb and got the TF701 at newegg instead of amazon so I had to pay a 15% restocking fee to return it, but oh well! If it can't play basic 3D games at over 25fps at native resolution, it's worthless to me.
[deleted post]Those specs are not correct and were just guesses. They are WAY off in several areas, like:
Height: off by 10mm
Weight: off by 28g-38g
Battery: off by 1400mah
It says external memory = yes (meaning it has microSD slot)
Camera specs are not even close AT ALL (720p front camera? 20mp rear shooter? lol)
Sensors list is lacking some of the sensors (like heart rate monitor)

My S5 hasn't been rooted so far, maybe when Samsung will end its support.
BTW, i had also that Asus TF700 with its bad internal storage i/o and overheating combo of cute aluminium+tegra 3 :)

I was an addict when it comes to flashing roms back in the days when knox wasn't a priority but at the introduction of knox, my scale of flashing roms reduced drastically if not none. I haven't even rooted my s5 yet though their of roms out their to flash. Feel bad for the guy that paid buck loads to get his gadget repaired.

At least with Apple, you can un-jailbreak and Apple never knows it was jailbroken, but with Knox you trip the bit and they can tell the bootloader was unlocked even if you relock it. At least in theory...with my Galaxy S4, I returned it to the stock rom and Knox went back to untripped. It's just dumb that it voids your warranty. What if Dell voided your warranty because you enabled the local administrator account in Windows after buying the PC? Or what if they locked the BIOS and voided your warranty if you wanted to change settings? I sold an ASUS TF700 tablet shortly after buying it. Since I unlocked the bootloader, ASUS voided my warranty. The next owner of the tablet had the digitizer break on them somehow, so they got stuck with a $270 repair bill for the $450 tablet.
One Nexus per year doesn't provide us enough options for a new device. More Cyanogen-backed phones will be nice to see, like the OnePlus Two or whatever.
JohnHolmes, 06 Mar 2015I thought that was pretty normal to have a dead-zone near the bezel. Haters gonna hate.Yes, i never questionned myself about it but then, any bait is good to catch without even thinking

Me too i got disappointed about this device. I was going to sell it this week after S6 announcement but finally i gave up : just to keep an objective mind about phones.
And also because i noticed it's hard to sell it as second hand over here..

Yeah i bought xperia z2 during the period S5 came just to try out other brands but didn't like the feel then went for lg g3 but the screen is just not my taste incorporated with hanging issues I didn't waste time in selling it off but i remember that GSMarena had recently said that sammy had just released a higher version of samsung s5 (lte-a) quite similar to note 4 (more like a mini version of it) though some users felt cheated but I went for it and since then been using it. Now this new S6? Can't wait to lay my hands on it :D
