Back in the old days Toshiba, HP Laptops were integrated with Fingerprint readers.. you need to swipe your finger to unlock.. Now todays generation of laptops doesn't have those swipe fingerprint anymore.. It was useless!! With a S5.. cool story man. You can't use one hand to unlock your phone with the fingerprint reader..! Shamesung nice try..!
im very disappointed in S5...im following this since it starts from rumour until the preliminarly specs..but the heck whats this SHAMESUNG?i realize that i only waited for your WAISTED EDITION...WOOOOT X-(
I liked this phone the first time around when it was called the LG Optimus G2
i hate Samsung now they going back not forward cheap design worst look and old technology they are like apple i am going to change my phone lg or google nexus and will sale my s4
Ash, 24 Feb 2014Agreed! I didn't know it would F series. But I knew Samsung is looking forward to another seri... moreI don't agree. This is going to be war about Samsung fanboys and others. In my opinion this years MWC is not about phones but instead of strategy. The guy which you where replying is wrong in so many levels. My view it's not about phones at all bu in sales and market positioning. Both Nokia no no. Nokia did a bold move which is good in terms of strategy but its very ugly and Samsung did fail. Its not about the phone Galaxy S5, its about sales. Nobody understand that this year would been all about IGZO and everybody si forgetting that. Everybody. The guy is talking about TIZEN. Look what happen to Microsoft and there jump from W7 to W8. Its a failer. Its not about fanbosim and brand lovers its about the product. Is it selling. How good is it. Is W8 a succes. NOT. Tizen is coming to late almost long ago to late. And now some fan is angry what W8 is great. Yeah sure its great. See the truth. Everybody makes a misstake but those companies are loosing ALOT of money by those misstakes. Just look at MS. Samsung could do this in hole different way but this decision was made but some board or a new fresh guy who wants a success. Packing some new Galaxy F phone in superior body would not make a huge difference even if Samsung is pushing TIZEN and want to be free from google. THEY are loosing money on this idea because they are killing S4 and S5 in android market making space for others to make money. This is logic people. Nothinh to do with fans, brands and other bs stuff. LOOOK AT MS for god sake. If LG G2 is 300 euros or less lets say 270 euros. And Samsung is selling S4 for 400 -380 euros and S5 for 550 euros where is logic both you and others. Same spec same phones. And at the end come with all new OS in superior body to allure buyers at 600-650 euros. Are you nuts. Calculate the lost of that company and gane by for exp LG. OR MF MICROMAX. We are talking about enormous amount of money here as a company. And then at the other end Lg G3 comes with spec and superior body at the price of 480-450 euros. Think logic. This year top android is as i see. SD 805 and 2k screen. And that isthe winner. Look at iphone 6. Yeah. Thats whats im, talking about. IGZO saphire etc. Not a fanboy of any kind or any brand but overall. The phone of the year as Android would go for LG and iphone 6 would take the wow effect. Thats it. Huwei would be as affordable phone maker and gaining some new buyers. Firefox OS would be something fresh and new as they signd cotract for 45 dollar phone as a smartphone. Overtalking dome countries as attractuve alternative for Os. Thats it. Nokia is trying to convert users of Android to WP by implementing WP experience. Making it a lerning process for switching from android to WP. Very bold move. And thats it for this year. Lg is making OIS + and knock code. This year seems to be not about phone but instead is about politics.
AnonD-212969, 24 Feb 2014Note2 owner here. I'm a little bit disapointed with Sd800 and 2gigs of ram, but I like ip67 ce... moreSony is pretty good with updates, used to be slow but getting better! You have a point with regards to LG, they have already stated they cannot guarantee updating any other phones beyond the G2, Flex and Pro G2!
I appreciate the waterproofing, but if there's anything that Samsung can't do it's elegant and sleek -- yet I'm still a little shocked by how pedestrian and ugly this phone is. The G2 has a larger screen, a smaller body, nonexistent bezel and a chipset about at parity -- and it came out last September, for G#d's sake.
The fingerprint sensor is a poor implementation purely for Samsung to say that they've got one. At least Apple seriously thought about the user experience and came up with a unique "touch" solution, not the age old slide tech the industry has been using for years and years. PayPal integration is OK though.
mw, 24 Feb 2014S5 is totally flop phone .... My S4 is much better.....Agree,At least 1 good thing for us S4 owners , nothing to be jealous of! :)
This Is another beautiful phone frm sammy, there are so many things to be wowed abt except for the crap design.I am expecting this phone to huge revenue for Samsung mobile despite its crap design.
I own a Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition and I must say this is utterly underwhelming and uninspiring. Over to the Z2, I think.
Its not bad and its not as good as I thought it would be. I think Samsung have just left the door open to Apple, Sony and LG to swoop in and steal the spotlight. Especially with the Sony Z2 an the LG G 2
awful s5 for big bezels specially in the top and sides,(samsung name uses extra place at top),very small speaker and it couldn't be lovely for movie watching, big size against s4 with only 0.1" increase lcd size, no innovated in design or in body material (no metal or glass)... it has some improve but negative points are more for new flagship.
