Razor Demon™, 30 Mar 2014Whatever you said are facts. Absolutely true. I agree.LOL!!!!!
You: "I did not even read what you said...but because it contradicts 4qsr and is on the same side as my fanboysim whatever you said is true"
Wow you trolls don't stop.
Ginny Aur Johnny, 29 Mar 2014Funny how you call me a jealous troll. First off, I, myself, am a Samsung user and second off,... moreWhen you reply to someone you are supposed to use facts and not contradict and ignore what they said.
For me, 28 Mar 2014It's a disappointing phone from samsung. Probably the least exciting release since the SGS2.True!
Anonymous, 29 Mar 2014I'm sorry jealous troller.
Minor compared to what? It's a bigger update than any Iphone. It i... moreBlah blah blah. Let's do the comparison.
Samsung Galaxy S5 has 0.1" more display than the S4, 200 mAh more battery than the S4, 3 MP more resolution with ISOCELL (I have seen the ISOCELL sample earlier in GSMA and it doesn't differ much from BSI sensors), 6 lens construction, waterproof, fingerprint scanner, heart rate monitoring sensor and octa core processor. Forget the WiFi + LTE download feature as the Exynos variant doesn't even have 4G. The S5 has same 2GB RAM as S4 while Xperia Z2 has 3GB RAM as compared to it predecessor. In terms of look, all the iPhones and Sony Xperia look the same as most of the Galaxy but you can't deny the fact that iPhone 5S and Xperia Z2 not only looks better than S5 but also feels better in hands because of premium materials used to build these two phones. The S5 is plasticky with a textured back panel and looks ugly. These are facts and facts are always truth. Whether you like it or not, deal with it. It's not worth arguing with someone who worship Samsung. You call most people jealous trolls who give negative but true opinions which are facts, so it's not a surprise you called me one too.I refrain from arguing with you as you've little to no knowledge about technology and you're just a blind Samsung fanboy who worships Samsung.
Anonymous, 29 Mar 2014First off have you seen a comparison of the two to see how they compare????????? And on top of... moreFunny how you call me a jealous troll. First off, I, myself, am a Samsung user and second off, I'm saying what the truth is, whether you like it or not. I don't even run to every Apple articles and bash iPhones like you? Coming back to the point, Samsung Galaxy S4 with two quad core processors (Exynos variant) is laggy and heats a lot. The S4 and most of the low end and mid range Galaxy phones lags whenever opening basic apps such as contacts, dialer, camera, etc., as I've experienced in various Samsung Galaxy phones such as Galaxy Y S5360, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy S, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Dous, Galaxy Dous 2, Galaxy Note II, and Galaxy S4 Zoom. This is because TouchWiz isn't optimized. I prefer Samsung over other brands because it offers MicroSD slot and removable battery. The Exynos variant doesn't offer 4G for the price being asked in India and as experienced by myself and many others in their Samsung Galaxy S4 (Exynos variant), it heats the phone up even when playing Angry Birds or browsing the net for 10 minutes while the Snapdragon variant doesn't heat up much as compared to the Exynos variant. Have you checked the benchmarks of Snapdragon 801? In Antutu, it's 37K the highest I've seen. With quad core only, this processor achieves this much and it takes Samsung 8 cores to achieve this much. Probably you'll see when GSMArena will review it. Benchmarks doesn't matter, what matters is real life performance and you know it very well that many Exynos variants has been defeated by Snapdragon chipsets. Also, Snapdragon chipsets are better at battery management than Exynos ones. Like it or not, it's the truth. Deal with it and stop crying already.
Sumsung should improve the disigns of there devices and shapes with strong covers.
Nonsay, 28 Mar 2014boring design, the difference is they paste a band aid at the back....True!
Ginny Aur Johnny, 28 Mar 2014Samsung Galaxy is very minor upgrade over the S4 and it has the same lame design, plasticky fe... moreI'm sorry jealous troller.
Minor compared to what? It's a bigger update than any Iphone. It is a bigger update than the Z2. It's a bigger update than the HTC M8. The G Pro 2 was only playing catch up to the Note 3.
So if it's so terrible and minor than everything else in YOUR logic is crap.
Laggy UI? Sorry this is reality. Not your trollish fantasy.
And every other company is using the same old design too. And they way it looks and feels is preference. And show us another Amoled water proof phone that has removable back/battery....There is none. World's first. Just like Active was worlds first I know of water proof removable back.
Since when does an LTE chip decide the price of a device?????? Yeah it's not cool that Samsung has not gotten one in yet...But there is way more to the price. For instance an Amoled screen is the MOST expensive part in ANY phone. It's an octa core A15 chip. A new design 16mp 6 lens camera. And sensors that others do not have. As well as water sealed. And we have not even gotten a chance to check out the DAC yet.
So troll on.
Ginny Aur Johnny, 29 Mar 2014Fingerprint scanner is of no use to me and I'd rather use a real heart rate monitoring device... moreFirst off have you seen a comparison of the two to see how they compare????????? And on top of that this is the faster 801 in the S5, where as others like Sony are using the slower one. So the Exynos is clocked closer to them.
And proven countless times???? Lol. Wow.
How can you compare something just by core count???
And Snapdragon as well as every mobile chip has history of over heating.
And It's really only the last couple generations of Snapdragon that have an edge. And they do not beat the hell out of the Exynos. And the Exynos does have some advantages.
First of the newer exynos chips run on the Cortex A15 architecture. It's more powerful, but newer and not as well optimized. Cortex A9 like in Snapdragon and older Exynos have been around for years, draws less power, and has been heavily modified and worked on for years.
Also the A15 Exynos cores are not clocked as high. Like this. The Snapdragon 801 in S5 is 2.5ghz where exynos is 2.1ghz.
In past S800 was 2.3ghz and Exynos was 1.9ghz.
And technically the Cortext A15 still can score better cpu mark. But not in every way and Snapdragon has had years more work. So it has tiny advantage. Graphics seems to be where differences show up more. As well as battery drain is a lot less black and white than people want to claim. Many mixed cases.
And before switching to A15 Snapdragon had nothing on Exynos except sometimes a little ahead in cpu thread.
4G is the only actual let down. And crap? Oh you are one of those jealous haters I forgot.

Yes the Indian variant of S5 is having an Exynos octa core processor, and Exynos processor has a history of overheating. Since Exynos processors are made by Samsung, they don't cost much. Let's face it. This Exynos Octa has 8 cores and the Snapdragon 801 has 4 cores, so in theory the Exynos Octa should win but in reality, the Snapdragon 801 beats it. Snapdragon processors are way better than Exynos and it's been proven countless times. 4G is there in some selected cities in India and soon 4G will be available almost in every state. The S5 costs over 50K in India, yet it doesn't offer 4G over 2300 MHz LTE TDD band. You see, it's because of this Exynos crap processor.

MoFo, 29 Mar 2014Meh...waiting for the HTC One M8.HTC one m8 is better and s5 band aid phone is crap.
Many people would prefer to have their Samsung Galaxy S5 rooted out of the box.
I admit HTC is not fancy but it's far away from ordinary...that's why HTC one won the best smart phone award in 2013. I've sold my note 3 just to buy HTC m8. Waiting for this beast very badly...
