Seems just a mixed copy of other flagships.finger print scanner,dust and waterproof,and ui will be copy of ios7 undoubtly.the only new thing is heart rate scanner that's interesting , but useless.
Those are just rumors and leaked images. If you're mature enough, you'd wait for the official announcement of the Samsung S5. By the way you are behaving, I can see that you believed the rumors already. Don't judge the book by its cover, as someone said earlier. Those are just rumors.
some rich sheikh's kid demanded a S5 before anybody else has it and his dad arranged for a early built prototype from Samsung.
I bought (or had) the S4 because, in the first place, of its features which other phones DON'T have. And I was ecstatic and proud to use these in the first 4 or 5 days. The I realized after some time that it bogs and slows my S4 a lot (not to mention battery drainage) that I have to turn -off MOST of these features. In the end, I concluded that these features were useless until Samsung ups the ante in terms of battery and processing power to be able to pull-off the features.
My second reason is that the S4 has a somewhat good design- thin, with small bezels (albeit cheap looking in my opinion since it resembles cheaper Samsung phones as well). But after a month of checking-out my friends' good looking Android Phones (Brand S and Brand H), I thought I was wrong again, and I despised the design already.
With that said, I am now a happy customer go another brand (won't mention) , but it has a nice metal frame with glass design. And probably will never look back.
this phone just looks so much like a s4. samsung need to up their game with the s6
Heart rate monitor is something pretty old in the android world, don't know exactly if running apps have it already but there are a lot of stand alone apps. there are a lot of apps that can do it.
The one thing samsung excels at is marketing old features and gimmicks as new and revolutionary. Just like you-know-who.
sammy fans are so hyped..but be rational..s4 was a real fail. The biggest mistake i did was buy one. Had to return the first one i bought because it used to get heated up by itself. The second one i bought was ok i thought few days later noticed that the screen was going on and off by itself. I took that to return, and they said they couldnt return my money. Total loss of my money. Laggy software also..so sad samsung. so sad. Will never go after samsung again
Ewan, 24 Feb 2014Oh no...uglier than Galaxy S4. :(Well it is, I hope this is not the real deal.
Seriously disappointed, They got 24 hours to turn this design around...or i claim the note 3 as the winner. I heard they wanted to make it more affordable but damn this looking cheap....
I would surely buy Sony's Z2 coz it has all the things I am looking for. Natural looking great display with better viewing angles now as compared to the Z1 and it also has the best camera in an Android phone. Another thing is that Sony keeps getting better and better when they release a flagship phone unlike Samsung who gets terrible as time goes by except for the Note's trend. Sony also has a very reasonable price for their devices at least here in the Philippines. Apple does nothing but fool people who only buy because of name but do not know anything about what they will be getting under the hood if they'd get an Android or a Windows Phone device.
I was preparing my self to swap from Sony to Samsung this year but not after this!
Só boring and ugly!
I Hope they redesign it before they launch it.
Seriously uncool phone.
