Samesung fans were expecting:
- bezel-free display (instead Samesung gave them thicker bezels)
- fingerprint scanner integrated in the glass display (instead they got an old-fashioned swipe sensor in the center button)
- metal body (instead they got more plastic)
- 64-bit (instead they got last year's Snapdragon processor)
- even bigger screen (well, ok, they got that, lol)
- new design (instead they got another soap bar)
- iris scanning technology (nothing there either)
- 4K screen (nope)
So much lack of innovations.
From what I see up to now(if it is true), it is going to be an even bigger flop, than the GS4! Still Handroid, still the same look, too big, cheap-looking, plastic, etc.
NO NO NO i hope this is a fake, this is a apple stype so called update :(
I've been a big fan of galaxy but this has let me down. Absolutely rubbish, waste of money
Bad Color Combination, No improvement all material copied from Nokia, iPhone and Sony... no new developments...Android is common and cheap..why to spent so much on this gadget just coz of brand..No way..
I thought they might do some trick this time, but all the goods of Nokia, Sony & Iphone is in this phone, I don't like this... I will buy Nokia Icon or iPhone 5s. such a bad bad color combination, anyways in Pakistan and India so many Cheap and local phones are android, so does it worth simple answer "NO"..Samsung will think next time out of box and stop copying.. Good Luck for Next Year to Galaxy Series
Wowww.Damnsung sucks.Shame on you Samsung.I believe that your fingerprint scanner is worse than Touch ID.Samsung produces toys always.Even the Galaxy s4 didn't candidate as the best smartphone of the year in global mobile awards Ceremony.This is the future of a copycat.
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2014Only LG fans can talk about thin bezel but lg can't make a decent ipxx certified phone. Lg fai... moreNow that samsung included water proof feature, you can now say you'll take your phone anywhere? Funny how times and opinions change huh? Earlier when it was only sony that was doing the water proof thing every samsung fan said it was useless. Who would like to swim with his phone? Now s5 has it, it suddenly became a great thing.
A.s today i pray for god that this should not be that what we expect .
no improvements just big display
what is this? a joke?
they added a figure print and water proof, the rest the same as before, improvement on camera but the casing is the same boring look and design!
I am one of original fan of Galaxy series started with Galaxy s2 and S3 and never brought myself down to upgrade to S4, seems I will be proudly keeping my S3 as S5 has nothing exiting to offer me, or may be change to sony or different brands!
Samsung totally failed with this designed! now they are going to lag behind i-phone too! disaster I would say! really sad because I believe GS2 is still one of their great invention, where it outperformed anyone else, but after that S3 they are going down the drain, as they have ran out NEW, INOVATIVE idea!!
so SAMSUNG you better STOP galaxy series !
i don't trust this post. there is no way to have the bezels of an s4 thinner than those of the s5 plus it is all kind of donno, not right
