my gosh! Samsung phones are always On Discount Sale on group buying sites and only a couple of people would buy it, Oh Dear! Samsung
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2014Because there are still lots of S4 and even S3 that are still working.
And they don't hav... moreS3, working? Well if you call that lag "working" we can blame it on a very loose definition of the word, it definitely is not anywhere near high end performance like S4. For me theres no doubt that the first Samsung with modern day performance was the Note 2.
But i knew, and maybe i even posted it somewhere before somewhere as proof, that S5 wouldnt sell as much as S4, since S4 looked a bit classy with its flatish fake metal sides (for a samsung, im stretching "classy" way too far now) while S5 was a one man show in pure big bezel uglinessand didnt offer any sensible advantages over the S4 other than defective motion gimmicks, and the S5 display looked 2 sizes too small and it looked just terrible in every visual way. It will stand as a unsolved mystery how Sony Z2 came to be known for big bezels in 2014 while S5 managed to slide under the big bezel radar.
S4 just was too good, the only surprise is that S5 isnt further behind. And again we see Samsung sliding under the radar, Xperia Z3 is quoted as an insignificant upgrade of Z2 and S5 wasnt famous for being a useless upgrade of S4, how did Samsung manage to do this? Basically Samsung could rename the Galaxy Grand 2 to Galaxy S6 and sell it for $700, thats the true technical level of the average sammy user.

The problem is people dont want to buy an s5 then samsung will release
Making their mobile obsolete in 1 month.
Make a friggin s5 or s6 then stick with it. Refresh...
Because there are still lots of S4 and even S3 that are still working.
And they don't have a cult following.
Too Much Phones. Making me angry. Take a lesson from Xiaomi in 4 years only 11 Smart Phones.
Explian, 24 Nov 2014Can you elaborate why? Is it Touchwiz UI or Andriod? If none can you tell me the reason.Touchwiz. but it got better on note4 still not like stock or sense though
Why buy Samsung when everybody does Android better and at much cheaper prices, especially the Moto G and Xiaomi?
AnonD-241094, 24 Nov 2014Serves samsung right. They offer cheap plastic phones at premium prices. And bad processor un ... moreBad processors? Then basically almost every major flagships out there is a bad phone.
Problem is the DESIGN. Samsung must go to alpha brand with full aluminium. Elite Design. S5 is horrible design phone. I prefer xioami mi4
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2014I think this is not surprising. First S5 is ugly. Not the phone itself, but the back cover. Ca... moreIt was the best nonlumia mobile camera when it was released and still one of the best. I agree with you on other points

sasmsung lost in china n now losing in india, two densely populated regions which together holds 40% of the population of world... well the mistake is of samsung itself, they never understood the market here, alwaz put its product overpriced n now they r on the verge of being thrown out of these two countries... once completely dominatedby samsung, now the small players like micromax, xiaomi, huawei are giving hard time to samsung... good luck samsung for ur future but i see only thumbs down for u here...
