My friend has S5 which still works awesomley fluid, you can't say the same for iPhone 5 or 6, unless you change it's battery every year. To make it worse for Apple, battery on that S5 is still better than battery of some new iPhones...

Obvious Samsung troll is obvious.
Samsung flagship sales are going down for some time now. They can't compete on the high end ... I guess releasing the same phone over and over didn't quite work right?

Too restrictive, but at least they're quality products. Samsung's neither quality nor value, it's what I'm trying to tell you the whole time.
Sammy's flagship sales were through the floor earlier this year: https://www.theverge.com/2017/4/26/15445026/samsung-q1-earnings-2017
And back in August didn't seem much better for S phones (only 20 mil): https://www.androidauthority.com/samsung-galaxy-s8-sales-cross-20-million-units-791480/
What are you doing? Trying to pretend that fab sales or government contracts makes Samsung *mobiles* better? Because sure as hell they ain't. Their flagship sales are on all time low, their prices at all time high and their technical expertise nowhere to be found (a mere 2.5 years ago Exynos SoCs were top of the crop, these days ? After continuous 10% yoy increases it has basically dug to the bowels of the earth...)
SwaggyP, 02 Jan 2018S5 was not a flop. It sold 60 million, much more than S6
Again, you should read the numbers... moreSamsung was the most profitable company in the world in 2017. Try being a salty looser Apple fanboy a little more if you want to. :D
You should know by now that, sticking to old empty trolling will only slow your iPhone down. Or have you NOTCH heard the news?
I get it, it sucks being an Apple fanboy now. You're almost as ridiculous as Sony fanboys, which is about as low as it gets. Just suck it up and accept that Samsung runs mobile innovation now.

Again, you should read the numbers. S6 was by far the worse selling S flagship of the last years. Only S1 sold less. Samsung took a giant step back and since then it has never recovered.
S7 which was the "good" new-gen S phone *still* sold less than S5 (55 mil in a year), S8 looks to be a flop in sales as S6 was as well ... Samsung is going *down*. Tech sites don't know it, economical analysts do.
The internal issues of Samsung *actually* made her products worse. From leading in most categories, is now trailing. TVs , cameras, home appliances, tables and phones. Samsung is trailing in *everything* that she used to lead 3-4 years ago.
What's happening on phones is actually indicative of the woes of Samsung as a company. Only the tech sites left to be praising her. Most people know by now that there are better phones in both raw specs, experience and value/price.
Note 4 was the last *great* Samsung phone. The last one that was leading in most major categories. Since then darkness came...
IMO Samsung should solve her internal issues and again strive to get back on top. The industry is tough and won't tolerate mediocrity for much longer. Samsung's flagship sales has fallen off a cliff...

The S5 was the flop that almost ruined Samsung's brand like the X is ruining Apple's brand. Remember when every gadget blog had doomed Samsung as a has-been flagship manufacturer ahead of the S6 launch? That Samsung would be better off just giving up mobile because their image was so cheap? After the S6 everybody has copied Samsung because they learned from their mistakes and out-Appled Apple on design and attention to detail.
XXX13, 30 Dec 2017Samsung was never in the specs war with anyone.
Their products are all about customizations.
... moreWrong brand. Samsung is of the most locked android phone. If you want customization buy Pixels (or OnePlus, or anything close to vanilla really).
Samsung was *all* about specs and people preferred her despite being lock *because of* the specs. Up until 2014 she had no adversary. You must be 3 years old or easily forgetful...

Also Apple took the performance crown about 3 years ago ... that was my point, not that it is/was useful to have it in the first place. Then again Samsung became known partly because of specs, it's sad to see them go, soon their profits will too... oh wait, it already started, apple racks up most of all profits these days...

You must live in some parallel universe or something. S6 was the start of Samsung's end!
Anonymous, 31 Dec 2017I said the objective fact. But yes, I know that the majority of people are brainwashed by marketing.I didn't watch nor see any Samsung marketing and if i were to walk into a random store to buy a phone, i would instantly be impressed by Samsung's infinity design, personally their current phones are beautiful.

Anyone with a basic IT knowledge knows that battery has absolutely nothing to do with CPU performance, it's absurd how Apple treats it customers as complete retards. This is a scam
Anonymous, 31 Dec 2017I said the objective fact. But yes, I know that the majority of people are brainwashed by marketing.Your fact is absolutely worth garbage. Millions of people buy phones just because of edge design. S6 edge was basically main selling point, it become so popular that now you don't have option at all on S8. If you call it a fact it does not mean it is a fact, you just random dude with subjective opinion, don't misinterpreted your opinion with facts

S5 has much better design (removable battery) than newer Samsung S phones. Samsung ruined it's phones' design since the S6.
