I think a lot of potential S5 buyers will either go up to a Note 3 or across to the G2 or Z2.
Graz, 24 Feb 2014I'm posting this now from my S3. I'm really disappointed at this announcement. I don't want si... moreVirtually every big maker today makes better phones than samsung... so what are you looking for :P
Sony this is your year! The Z2 is a true beast. As much as I hate to say this but Samsung made a huge mistake. This product is just rubbish! Comparing the S5 with products like the Z1 and HTC ONE really made me realize I was an idiot to fall for samsung and get the S4.
I could live with samsung's ugly designs and plastic for one reason alone which is good features. Now since the features are also behind there is nothing that Samsung can offer me.
Never again! My choice is xperia z2 hands down.
WOW, I got it!!! They put in only 2GB of RAM to have a reason not to give updates!!! LOOOL!!! :)))
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2014This Is another beautiful phone frm sammy, there are so many things to be wowed abt except for... moreMost people are blind both in terms of design and services (virtually everything a smartphone is good for), this is why samsung's crappy phones sell so much even if they look and perform at the bottom of the scale.
I wish Samsung would stop placing the back button on the different side to everyone else.
Jason Melling, 24 Feb 2014I liked this phone the first time around when it was called the LG Optimus G2The same thing could've been said at the S4/One/Xperia Z release, as LG had already brought to market a phone with a quad-Krait CPU and a 13 MP camera, the Optimus G. And it's not as if the S5 is a very bad phone as it stands, maybe not good enough to upgrade to, but still. I'm using a G2 right now, and I'm delighted with it, so I think I know how this phone would handle. Anyway, it's a bigger upgrade than the iPhone 5s was over the iPhone 5.
I'm posting this now from my S3. I'm really disappointed at this announcement. I don't want silly nonsense like a heart rate detector or fingerprint scanner in a phone. I want innovation, good looks, quality screen, and decent tech. It's almost certain I won't be getting another Samsung phone.
AnonD-237110, 24 Feb 2014i am s4 user and i think i should switch to iphone now because i am expecting somethign better... moreAs if you are an S4 user.... if you were going to change you would switch to a G2 or the Z2 not an iPhone...
3 yrs in a row with same design? NO IMAGINATION, I expected new design, innovative, I guess S3 & S4 users don't have to worry about their devices being considered "old" since this design its pretty much same garbage design, petty!!!
Anon, 24 Feb 2014I own a Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition and I must say this is utterly underwhelming and... moreJust what I was thinking. Z2 is purely a better phone. In specs and looking. Period. Take my money Sony.
i am s4 user and i think i should switch to iphone now because i am expecting somethign better than s4 but s5nis worst than s4.. so bye bye shamesung
flopship of the year... sammys finaly goes for a sucide n footprints of nokia... now sammy attitude becomes next nokia.
This is really disappointing, loved my S1,3 and 4 but was looking for a totally new design andtech on the 5. Big Samsung fan but lost some of their sparkle with this phone tonight. Can only hope there is something being held back for later in the year otherwise I'm sticking with my S4 and going sim only later this year when my contact us up.
You can do a lot better Sammy!
