copy of iphone 5s with finger scanner.Im wait to iphone 6 thats be realy amazing not like a galaxy s5 design for elian
Was a Galaxy S2,S3 user before but last year I made the switch to HTC One, and despite all the camera purple tint, and gaps issue, which mine was be fixed, everything is still, speedy and amazing after, although its no longer new. If it was Galaxy devices, it would've lagged a bit navigating the screen by now. Haven't regret making the switch, especially after seeing the S5

too many fanboys knocking a phone before even trying it.
Z1 was better than the S4, Yeah right. Awful front camera and 20mp camera didn't take very good pictures at all. The actual phone was the virtually the same width and height of a NOTE 3 but the screen was almost an inch smaller. My Z1 also used to heat up with more than 10 minutes use and the materials used in the build would hold in the heat for an hour or two. Felt very uncomfortable in my pocket.
S4 was a good phone, like it or not. I'm sure the S5 will be good too. It's hardly going to take the world by storm.
I am myself using a HTC ONE and I'm very happy with it. Far superior in my opinion than a Z1.
Love or hate Samsung they make good phones. Currently superior to the Sony range. Specification isn't everything.
Major news sites such as CNN BBC news even my local news didn't even mention samsung announcing this yesterday. Inn other words I actually had no clue this was announced. I only dropped by because Nokia releasing their 1st ever android phone was actually deemed news worthy by bbc news and made their tech section of their website. I decided to check the specs of the Nokia x then I found out about this. I feel sorry for Samsung this year. They will dominate market share only because they come out with 30 phones a year.

TOP-TIP: Do actually try out an aluminum body phone before coming here spouting BS and sheer ignorance.
There's no point of living in denial, it's a phone that looks just as bad as the failure to meet it's expectations.
Next time you'll come here trying to justify how plastic jewelry is more comfortable than gold or silver.
I think the Samsung Fanboys disappointment has spread to the other Vendors (based on all the comments I have seen on various social networks and tech websites. Hence the micky taking,
The hard core fans deny it ins't a disappointment
(some have even said it's beautiful).
It looks boring there's no visual interest at all.
The band aid joke is accurate personally it looks like the phone has smallpox or cellulite.
Giving it's increased size the second is probably more accurate.
However I don't see anything any S4 owner needs to get upset about.Or anyone else for that matter (but I am sure those fan-boys only have money for SAM
I guess all the leaks didn't help with the disappointment.
Good Camera, big deal.
Sony and Nokia do good camera's
Fingerprint scanner (been done), everyone goes on about Apple yet Motorola did that with the Atrix.
Sony have released a similar spec phone at MWC and the perception is something better than the S5. and they do better water and dust-proofing
The S5 should be called the Samsung Gimmick not Galaxy.
I have no allegiance to phone manufacturers but some of the crap written here and on other sites about how great the S5 is made my piss itch.
don't lose hope s-fanboys,this is the coolest phone,
TIME WILL SHOW
I have been a fan of the S series in the past. But honestly, Samsung have done what Apple did, hit stagnant waters. There is no real innovation at all. The actual phone looks comparatively awful compared to the S4; the bezel is big and ugly. I'd rather upgrade my i9505 to the i9506 than this. Maybe a look at the Sony Z2 or something now.
Loepoes, 25 Feb 2014The only nice thing about this phone is the wallpaper. The rest is a repeat of a repeat of a r... moreYou can get the default S5 wallpaper here and save money for something else. :-)
Ren, 25 Feb 2014Look at the gold color s5. It looks like a band aid on the back haha! ShameSung!Gold colour s5 may have self healing technology on its back panel (lg g flex) thats why its looks like a band aid . Lol.... Xperia Z2 come to me baby...
Rafe Firman, 25 Feb 2014Funny that I think Sony who hire a lot of fanboys here..
I can collect in my memoir how they ... moreDesperated and frustrated S-fanboy gonna bashing other brand. LOL. LG G3 will better than SGS5!!!
the_seba, 25 Feb 2014All in all it's the only widely available waterproof top-spec flagship with a removable batter... moreWaterproof phone with removable cover runs the risk of water damage if users didn't close the cover properly and tightly. The Japanese has been making waterproof phones since 1990s and hence their waterproofing technology and experience is better. There is a reason why they not using removable cover.
Look at the gold color s5. It looks like a band aid on the back haha! ShameSung!
No offense to Samsung Fans here. I Am or should I say I was a very BIG Fan of Samsung because of their Innovation with their Smart phones starting with S2, until with my S4. Actually S4 is full of Useless Features, and lets admit it, It lags even it has Quad Core processor now I had VERY HIGH HOPES That S5 will have NEW DESIGN, METAL/Glass Built But. WOAH. -_- What Happened Samsung! :(
Samsung does what it does best. COPY all the way. Innovation doesn't even come close for this company. Who are they to criticize Apple's iPhones? With the fingerprint scanner, all the more Apple should heavily sue Samsung. They copy Japanese companies who had eg Sony, waterproof or water resistant phones or smartphones. They use plastics for note, note 2, s1, s2, s3, s4 similar designs and small upgrades of specs too.
Leather stitches which isn't real leather for back covers of the Note 3 and charges consumer for premium prices. Now they call it a new design for s5 with a smaller front from the note 3 screen and a polycarbonate back cover, perforated plastic with mini dots to look glam? and that's "new"? Charging high prices for their galaxy s series and note series to consumers? When their ads mock fun of Apple iPhones and other android smartphones in the market ?
Way to go HTC, Sony, Lenovo, Xiaomi, Apple, Windows and many others for their persistance in their branding, retaliation, resistance and innovation against Samsung.
