S5 is a phone to be used every day, while iPhone and Sony Z2... are very uncomfortable and HTC One is very slippery!
More than 1080p is pointless on a phone, only drains the battery and make the cpu and gpu struggle!
Buy an iPhone or Sony Z2 or HTC One of you want to look at the back of your phone, while S5 is a comfortable phone to be used looking at the screen while the back is comfortably hidden in the hand!
The blue S5 is very good looking!
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2014Nothing new. That ugly bezel, this is a piece of crap.True
Clearly a lot of people upset about build and spec of the new S5. Let's see if sales tell a different story ;)
2nd hand build.. looks cheap... I was hoping for a metal body (even unibody) edition, with improved features .. same old design from many years ago... they will make/sell this junk as long as the customer taste doesn't change

I like this phone. Most critic is ridicules. No 6-core cpu, no higher display-res. What counts is no lag and pixel-density well above 350. As for physical design; 90-95% is screen real-estate anyway and the back is mostly case-covered anyway. As for manufactor-specific home screens; just install a home screen replacement app (or root the damn thing) and give it a rest. I can't shake off the feeling that most critic is from geeks that simply can't afford a new top-of-the-line smartphone every 6 months.
Dissapointed with the RAM. 2GB for a flagship isn't good enough. I'd rather buy the Note 3 with 3GB RAM.
After 3 years on Samsung S2, awaiting for big changes.... S3 (no).... S4 (no)... S5...... NO! Same shape, no luxury finish (plastic)... no new Touchwiz. New features: USB3, IP67 (Why not 58!) and faster AF system. Is that all?!?? You suck guys! I was sitting apart from Z1 as for the bad viewing angle, but now that the problem has been fixed on Z2... Sony, I'm coming! Bye bye Samsung!
Whether the Z2 or any other phone is a "better" phone than the S5 or not, Samsung will gonna sell millions due to marketing. I mean, nothing against Apple, but people still buy iPhones blindingly... And plus, Galaxy S are ALMOST ALWAYS the flagship phone of a carrier. Salespersons are sometimes also commissioned more if they sell Samsung. I think Sony could sell better if it increases its marketing. The average customer will chose Samsung or iPhone if they can afford it. But I don't think Sony is at a good start with marketing. Right now Michael Jackson fans are disappointed because the Jackson estate said there was an announcement today and it turned out to just be a Z2 ad with a previously unreleased song that's been remixed badly (the song already leaked years ago).

Up until any smartphone company comes up with hologram technology then I'll be impressed. So far I'm not even a dumb phone does does 80% functionality you get from a normal smartphone
Come to declare that you have finger print napkin pads , after others (iphone) launched at 6 months ago and the room was cheering like a great discovery ?? embarrassing and shame !!
Dust resistant? Ah come on. My old S2 has coped perfectly well without this feature. Still I'm glad the S5 is here so I can finally upgrade to an S4 at a much reduced monthly cost. Economically, buying the best handset as it's replacement arrives has always made more sense.
not to interesting phone same as old a worst flagship no hight
ights I think its boring phone
Is it troll season? Why would it not be a good phone. I doubt the number 1 produce will put out a dud as it's flagship. Some my not like the looks (how different can touch screen phones really be form on to the other?), but at the end of the day there would be very few that could outperform a Samsung flagship.
