Really disappointing!!! It's just another plastic sh*t from Samsung, fully packed with unnecessary functions, far from a premium phone look.
LG G2 and Sony Xperia Z2 is better than this china look alike phone lol!
Mark, 26 Feb 2014This in not wayyy ahead of the competition at all... though i was thinking it would atleast be... moreDue to a better screen, slimmer design, better camera, audio recording, video recording, better audio chip/headset out, more features, and rounded software, and removable battery and sd slot...even the S4 S600 version was an all around better package than G2.
So this definitely better. Not to mention the g pro 2 that came out did not even use this slightly better chip. Why? It was only playing catch up with the note 3. The so far shown htc was an even smaller update and also only uses last years chip.
The announced z2 was also a smaller update than s5. And it claims to use the S801 but is not unless they underpowered it.
So far the S5 was not what everyone expected or wanted but it did bring some nice things. They used the latest chip and made good changes. What they could've done that they didn't was 3gb ram and slightly larger battery. Plus we can easily assume there are some nice changes like the dac probably improved.
Htc sony and apple do this all the time. LG even did it. Nobody expected it with galaxy though. But due to expectations people are making it sound worse than what it is.
The sales figures of Samsung phones shows that eventhough people curse it a lot, but they but it... But even those who praise Sony, Htc or LG a lot..are hesistant to buy it. Instead they are interested to again look at Samsung and try to find out what is missing in it. This phenomenon will continue.. After all scratch prone metallic body was never an expectaion for a samsung buyer, he always carry his phone in a case/cover. Then the portion of phone left for his access is the UI, that any one knows is the ultimate which is there in his hands.
looks like samsung innovation has hit stagnant waters, its in a confortable position today same like nokia was a few years back, samsung has stopped listening to what people want just like nokia did a few years back, we all know what happened to nokia today n what will happen to samsung,
s5 isnt a flagship in any terms , the back looks like its got small pox,
as long as fan boys are there they will try to mint money from people, releasing 20 odd models with the same design , same features n different naming,
ps: i am a samsung user n getting really tired of samsung now......the only reason i stay with samsung is because of their touch wiz, i love it.....its so simple n functional
This in not wayyy ahead of the competition at all... though i was thinking it would atleast be a little ahead of the competition.. but there was a phone called the lg g2 released like 6 months ago ..with almost the same processor, ram, gpu, camera and storage..over which gs5 is uglies, bigger, fat bazeled, packs less battery, and less screen... maybe i expected too much.. like with the s3.. for the galaxy S flagship to blow the competition out or the water or something..
hey, 25 Feb 2014why a lot of people are complaining about the design of the new s5.. if you will check between... moreSamsung already had he S3 & all the numerous S4 they invaded the market with same design, it was about time for a big change yet they still decided to go with a similar design, no imagination, Samsung is becoming like apple...everlasting design...boring!!!
So S5 is using the latest and greatest available chip. It's the real 801.
hey, 25 Feb 2014why a lot of people are complaining about the design of the new s5.. if you will check between... morePeople do not want to see reality.
Hating on Samsung is too much fun for people.
It's jealousy due to them having more technology than the brand they want to have it.
why a lot of people are complaining about the design of the new s5.. if you will check between z1 and z2 the only changes are just the size of the screen (5inches to 5.2inches) and the chipset... thats all same design square type with glass same camera same features.. the new htc one and the old one(2013)same changes screen size (4.7inches to 5.inches)and two cameras and different chipset thats all same design as well, the iphone 5 compare to 5s the only changes is the finger scanner and chipset thats all same screen size same boring design unlike the s5 compare to s4 the changes are screen size (5inches to 5.1inches)different chipset and now with heart monitor and with water and dust proofing camera from 13mp to 16mp.. so if youll gonna compare those flagship phones you will see that the samsung dominates on changes on the features, maybe same hardware but all of the manufacturer is doing that as well.. im not a samsung fan nor anyone.. im just in particular of features of the mobile itself.. dont compare two different handsets because they are different to each other.. differnt features design pricing...
briankin, 24 Feb 2014seriously disappointed. should be called galaxy S4+. Samsung let me down on the display and de... morelol, i got alternative name:
Looks like the s5 is going to come out, shall i purchase the Note 3 or shall i wait for the s5/note4?
I wanna see the new LG G3,it'll probably be way better than this phone, since the specs on this phone is the same as the G2!!!
Ibrahim Ismailzada, 25 Feb 2014copy of iphone 5s with finger scanner.Im wait to iphone 6 thats be realy amazing not like a ga... moreiPhone 6 is reportedly to retain the same form factor so don't get too excited because you will be disappointed like the rest of the galaxy fans
