Don't be in a hurry! New strategy would be to release the s6 in 2016. Take time to fire your designers and get students from college to design your "next big thing".
will never buy samsung again...samsung jst lost a customer ...very dissapointed
I have been using Galaxy Note 1 for a long time and I really like it, even though it has become outdated. I was a big fan of Samsung till recently when I thought of upgrading to Note 3. I found out that Samsung is cheating Indians. They have put Snapdragon version of Note 3: N9005 on display and selling Exynos based N9000 in the box. I have started hating Samsung, as this is outrageous. They can't get away with cheating people. My next phone will be anything but Samsung.

Does the iPhone have a 5.7" pentile Super Amoled full HD Gorrila Glass 3 scree... moreAnd to prove my point - my dad chose an iPad mini because it provided him with the easiest to use option. He loves it. He doesn't need a stylus, nor does he care about the specs or anything to do with the screen. He couldn't tell 240ppi apart from 440ppi, nor does he understand what that even means.
Those are the people that pay for modern tech and that make up millions of consumers out there, not the geeks like you.

Customers don't want lag, don't want a million choices or features that they will never use. That's why they choose iPhone or iPad at a high price because the quality is right and they can use it out of the box.
Get. A. Grip.
And this is why at the moment I couldn't be happier with my LG G2 - the differences between it and the S5 are minimal. Particularly hilarious is how the S5 uses a Snapdragon 800 clocked to 2.5 Ghz, something that I can do on my G2 with a custom kernel - not that there is any need to do that, obviously.
LG, HTC and Sony are making spectacular returns, while I predict the mobile division of Samsung will die (or at least greatly diminish) during this year.
lal it seems SAMEsung somehow skipped to say the press that their new top dog will have another SOC too, sounds legit.
Protocol, 25 Feb 2014I will skip this one. It's such a disappointment. As a Samsung fan, I'm disappointed. I had hi... moreI agree .. Samsung Galaxy seems underwhelming. Lumia 1520 seems much better choice
this is the mid-to high level smartphone by samsung they will introduce the galaxy F with 3GB ram snapdragon 805 and other goodies
the note 4 will have 3GB ram and octa core 2.8GHz SD810
paulodonfather, 25 Feb 2014As usual samsung is upto apartheid selling exyos slower version without 4k video to asian co... moreSamsung built their success in contries like india before going to the USA etc ... So if they think they can shortchange us by again trying to sell us lower specks like the note 3 ( incidentally their note 3 display midels in india were with the snapdragon processor but only sold the exnos process version in india) they will be damaging their brand. May be time to move from Samsung that I have been using for over 5 years.
I can truly understand why the Samsung fans are not liking this phone. To the IOsheep I will say what else can we expect from you except your normal ramblings about Samsung copycats and so on and so on blah blah blah who cares what you have to say. So I'll ignore your comments.
To the real Samsung fans I say give this phone a chance. When I saw it for the first time I thought what the hell did Samsung do. But now the more I see it the more I like it. It's not perfect.
For starters I would have like the phone to stay same size and not grow as it did.
I would have liked to see the screen take up more real estate than it does now, but then there would probly not be enough space for sensors and so on.
The design is really good as it reminds me of the S2 which is perfect in my opinion. I mean what else are manufacturers supposed to do. Put wheels on it? As for the fake leather , do i like it. Hells yeah. I had a look at the Note 3 and it is supremely comfortable so i can't wait to see this phone.
As for the metal vs plastic I say to each his own. I personally feel metal doesn't belong on phones and it's uncomfortable to hold. I prefer plastic.
Will i get one. Maybe. I have an S4 which I love, but i might change if I really like this phone in the flesh. So all I'm saying guys is first check it out in your hand before passing judgement.
Samsung Galaxy S5 doesn't have 3GB of RAM either. It has the same 2GB as GS4
Shall we wait until see what ever the pluses of KitKat OS on de S4? Than to decide either to upGrade or not.
When S5 review will be edited on GSMARENA.COM? Many Thanks to all gsmarena's crew.
There are cheap andriod china phones all ova the world they all want to look like samsung. I can not really differenciate btween samsung and other cheap china phone they use thesame plastic and same design. For $700 for a phone that does not look premium
I repeatedly fail to understand as to what prevents Samsung from going to some better quality stuff. Why they always use cheap plastic? they never try to change design also. I own an S4 and i like it but I will not be going for S5 because of that cheap plastic feel
As usual samsung is upto apartheid selling exyos slower version without 4k video to asian countries and keeping the more faster snapdragon for USA.
Samsung Exynos variant as Ssmsung claims is not True Octa core as only 4 cores work
It did that same thing with samsung galaxy note 3 as well
Its high time Samsung stops cheating people
The other brands sell the same configuration all across the world.. atleast they are honest unlike samsung.
