First. This phone is the new 'alpha'. I believe their next flagship will get this design and true tone flash.
And with this C series it means samsung has a solid line up, midranger with premium build A-team and C series. Also premium budget phone, J series.
I think this year will be difficult for others, like Sony, LG who still using plastic construction, Xiaomi will continue to decline. Chinese huawei oppo, vivo will continue rising..

Shinichi, 05 May 2016Guys I have a feeling that this C-line is a mock for Apple phone hahahalet see how this c5 can beat apple ip4s ... octa core must easily beat that expensive dual core , right ??
papercut, 06 May 2016HTC 10 uses the home button and capacitive button, and looks like Galaxy phonesNo, it's not a home button. It's a touch pad that acts as a finger print scanner and a home key.
Samsung copied HTC's camera app, theme app, and now copies the design of the antenna bands on the back of the phone.
That is so ugly.. Disappointed in you Samsung. A bigger company copying smaller company. Just disappointed.
papercut, 06 May 2016HTC 10 uses the home button and capacitive button, and looks like Galaxy phonesMy M7 uses capacitive buttons as well, and that's not new. The front doesn't look like a Samsung phone, just the home button does a little, but that's not a copy since that home button has been in other phones too, besides it's not like they had many options for its shape.
it should be perfect and fun if they just put a dual front firing speakers.. and even better if they change the names too.. it should be called samsung galaxy m5 and galaxy m7.. anyway, the only thing that make the design so familiar are those antenna lines on top and bottom of the device. oem doesn't seem to know where to put those other than on top and bottom .

this f-ck-ing manufacturer copying even names! this damn "C" name was for Xperia.... sammy ran out of names so they started to copy other manufacturers device names same they did with apple when they kept stealing from them the design and much more!
who, 05 May 2016does rest of the world remember China?dude thats so selfish ....
Nice! At first i was a bit skeptical about Samsung using metal but they have proved they're able to produce some nice smartphones. Starting off with the Alpha, then going on to make the Note 4/5, Galaxy S6/7.. etc.. The metal they use is top notch as well, it sure takes a beating! Happy to finally see a full metal construction from them though, didn't like the back glass panels too much lol.
HTC, I'm proud of you. Your design language spirit are everywhere :)
