As much as I love Samsung and as big of a fan as I am... All i can say is i am shocked that Samsung would even call this a flagship device. This is a really weak and disappointing upgrade. Samsung - next time you introduce us to a "flagship" device, make sure that 80% of the rumours of the device are true. At the rate Samsung is going, it looks like the next phone I'll be upgrading to will be the S7. Don't get me wrong, a waterproof phone with a fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor is all good, but other than that, this phone's specs are simply terrible.
Galaxy S4 user.
This product is so uninnovative that it's insulting it exists. They consumerized this product so much so that people say wow at its features that don't work but not really do anything with it. Samsung its taking all consumers as fools with this new approach. Not bbuying Samsung products ever again until they change their business practices.
...That's cos your obviously not looking at the Galaxy Note 3 :)
s4 looks far better than s5..the dotted leather back pattern looks ugly..
The only nice thing about this phone is the wallpaper. The rest is a repeat of a repeat of a repeat. The usual Samsung rubbish....
all those flooding z2 wuth with battery is too low comments this one is for u. all the saamy fanboys enjoy your less than 3000mah batery. lol
and samsung even started copying sony in terms of making its phone waterproof.
hope samsung will copy sony's design too since its phone are all shitty in terms of design
come on dude. galaxy s5 is a disappointment. hope samsung do well in the s6. Sony is sony. samsung is samsung. Even though sony have big bezels they are 1000 times better than samsung crappy design.
M.G, 25 Feb 2014S5 fails to be as good as Xperia Z2!
its only a modified S4.. still Samsung fanboys who alway... moreFunny that I think Sony who hire a lot of fanboys here..
I can collect in my memoir how they praising the screen of Xperia Z... It is TFT lol.
And then worshipping the design of Z1... come on seriously what..? Classy?!
That's the most ugly brick with biggest bezel of flagship phone. You can use it to trim your muscles as well.
Even Sonny quickly come replacing it with Z2.
No one complain like HTC got beat up when they release One X+ few months after original One X.
But Sony get away with it.. I feel sorry for Z1 owners tho..
All in all it's the only widely available waterproof top-spec flagship with a removable battery. Up until the S3 (including), Samsung tried their best; Since the S4, sadly, the S line is just a row of appliances. It seems as though Samsung is relying too heavily on the Note these days as their to-go best effort making the Galaxy S5 a "c", to the Note 3 "s", speaking in iPhone terms.
Still Samsung enjoys great market share and loyalty and many people will buy S5. But from a geek's view, there is no innovation or addition to current galaxy line. Further now Samsung is behind Sony Z2 in terms of hardware, camera, battery capacity and looks. I was about to buy S5, believing that it will deliver, but it did not..
Just a minor update to S4. No OIS, same boring design, same plastic materials. What a disappointment! This time Sony Xperia Z2 wins.. I wish Samsung Galaxy S6 wouldn't be a disappointment!
