Stop with this iBS.
Some ppl like some fetures of TouchWiz(like multi-veiw , S Note, and so on), some kids like other features.
Just disable the features you don't want and problem is solved.
TouchWiz is the best thing that happen to Android.
We are fed up with your stupid tricks like " I have Note 3" "my brother have S4" , "my girl have Note 3"......."and they lag" .Just STFU
Samsung should do some real innovation in S5 not just incresing numbers in (RAM, processor, megapixels, ppi)
Gionee Elife E5 mini rotating camera is treated as innovation

The experts say 477ppi at 12". Period. What your Messiah said, we don't care.
Let's better talk about the "premium metal unibody" and the "so important" fingerprint scanner that all iboys badly want Galaxy S5, to have.
We all should agree Samsung does take Ideas from Others (you call it copy or something else upto you) but Samsung is not a Joke it is a company who made (still makes) most complicated part for Apple and others and they do house Worlds most sophisticated/advanced Silicon fabrication units and they are world leaders in Display technology besides every thing else they do. Samsung has one of the worlds best designers and most sincere hard working people along with real talent and capabilities which no other company might have. Increasing screen resolution need not be at PPI level but from several other areas to make your picture look sharper and less distorted there will be room for improvement in every phase of the product and thats Samsung is doing. I am not a big fan of Samsung nor Apple nor others its just that who is giving more value for your money. At this point its Samsung. I am sure S5 will be a radically new design and new form factor with improvements in several aspects. 5 also represents a significant version to any OEM so I am sure Samsung will do its best.

Thats very self centric, if you need more than 10 seconds to run 100 meters you dispute everyone who can do it below 10, for example on the reason "my legs are longer than average and i cant run that fast, then noone else can". Wow.
Just the thought that your abilities should dictate everyone elses needs is so repulsive and arrogant that words cant really express it.

"Raymond Soneira, president of DisplayMate Technologies, has challenged Apple's claim. He says that the physiology of the human retina is such that there must be at least 477 pixels per inch in a pixelated display for the pixels to resolve (become imperceptible to the human eye) at a distance of 12 inches (305 mm)."
Anyhow ,I think that more than that is stupid.
BUT WHO SAID THAT S5 WILL BE 560ppi, at first place?????? WHY THIS ANGER in you iboys????
to much talking. dont like it dont buy it. buy what ever you like apple, htc, nokia what ever but make sure to bring something to wipe your drol when you see this monster and please no saur graping.

...I stopped reading after this. Your logic is absurd.
Be Cool, 13 Jan 2014Yup. Agree, that 560 ppi is a bit too much, to be useful. You are wrong about human eye ... moreNope, nobody can see pixels at 477 ppi at 12 inches, period. I'm nearsighted, which means I actually have an ADVANTAGE in viewing things very close to my face, and I can't even begin to see pixels on the HTC One until it's around 6 inches from my face or less. That's 468 ppi. A regular person will never see pixels at 12 inches on anything even close to 477 ppi. I'm not an Apple fan, but they really were pretty much correct when they said that ~300 ppi at 12" was the sweet spot. In reality, I'd put the number close to 320-330 ppi, but it's definitely closer to 300 than 400. People just like to think they have super vision.
USHIRAA, 13 Jan 2014Ya, S5 from Samsung with 2K display. But one thing i did not understand that Why that high de... moreI don't necessarily disagree with the gist of your post, but c'mon: the S3 to the S4 was a huge difference. Since Samsung uses PenTile, their screens are never as sharp as another manufacturer's phone at the same resolution, because there aren't as many subpixels. So the S3 was in reality less that 720p. The bump up to "1080p" for the S4 was a huge improvement, even though it's still not as sharp as other phones.
Martin132014, 13 Jan 2014yeah...noob cant tweak it...but noob phone that a the majority of users and my friends s4 has ... moreDiffrence and clarification between apples so called smooth os and galaxy series so called lags....there is a POWER SAVING mode on almost all galaxy series if enabled the cpu gpu gets underclocked it results in a little less performance and a little lag but a AWESOME battery life .....one that apples smooth os cannot deliver so the big question is ..do u wang ur phone to last two days with galaxy series or just 1 day with apple ? good luck.ppl.
Ray M, 13 Jan 2014BlackBerry too. Nokia already rested in peace and has a berry company down below. Hahahanokia 515
summit, 13 Jan 2014My s4 i9505 is super smooth.. it depends upon the user.. if the user is noob so is his phone..... moreyeah...noob cant tweak it...but noob phone that a the majority of users and my friends s4 has already lag even he uses it normally...I just cant stand the lag of it...I uses a different phone and root it but not tweak any of it cause I see no point cause its already super fast and no lag..even a pro user will ditch out all Samsung bloatware and features cause they are useless to begin with...they just want the phone...
Well your wrong about that....some luxury in life can be enjoyed rather than necessary but you compare to that high pixel density that cant be measured is totally a different thing...if that high can be compared rather than numbers than your right, but your wrong about that...if about spec you say, whats the point about spec and features that we don't and cant use...huh
Dave, 12 Jan 2014Eh everyone who bought the S3 and the Note 2. Will get S5 or Note 4.Many like me have the S3 still gotten the S4 and also Note 3 . I like my Note 3 best for the marathon battery life even on 4G. The standby battery consumption is barely 2% for 6hrs.
Ya, S5 from Samsung with 2K display. But one thing i did not understand that Why that high density display?
Our naked eye does not recognize now it self the difference between S3 and S4 that much. And about software feature like Retina scanner etc, Its just useless in daily use. Even now itself no one using all features of S4. And additional feature in S5. It's just one strategy of company to rise a price and market. That is it.
Even if the pixel density is that high why would you complain? Sure it's not necessary but neither is any luxury in life. Samsung is all about specs as we know so don't be surprised when they their numbers and features at you.
