I want to buy htc one m8.but after service is very very bad in India. Samsung have so many service centres and enough after sales support. This is the only one reason that I brought samsung galaxy note 3. Exynos is not a bad processor. Trust me I never feels any lag . Htc one m8 is slippery and scratch magnet. On screen button eats screen size. For me note 3 wins now and wait fir note 4 or 5
so far so good for me. smooth experience and no issues with regards to hardware, software side issue, i guess is having 'too much' bloatware (samsung apps + pre installed apps). kitkat implementation is good so far, no crash, no lags. havent tried heavy gaming though since i prefer playing on PC than on mobile.
Muthu, 11 Apr 2014Dude, it is no fun spending Rs.50,000+ and then have a phone which does not support 4G/LTE. It... more4g not gonna launch so soon in india ... it will take atleast 1 more year.. till now 3g is not completely available in all part of india.. even if its available.. ppl r still stuck to 2g as tariff is much cheaper thn 3g...then whats the use of takin handset capable of 4g ?? useless.. when company launch some product they think on mass level... what customer wants ?? whats the requirement ?? nt on a single city

at guy below. yeah i would agree, design cuold be better but hey, you get so much more with the s5.
AnonD-119255, 11 Apr 2014What is the difference between galaxy s2 and s5 ? Nothing. same ugly desion with cheaper plastic.Personal Opinion , but I own a S2 and was looking for upgrade for a while now , after S2 , Samsung doesn't seem to have made any effort in Redefining its design :|
Still love my S2 :|
AnonD-119255, 11 Apr 2014What is the difference between galaxy s2 and s5 ? Nothing. same ugly desion with cheaper plastic.As much as I agree with you, I hate to suggest that S5 will still sell hot. While others from Sony and LG will once again get more of the praise yet very discouraging sales. This is also evident from the "Daily interest" and "Rating" tables at the GSMA site. I fear that soon people like us would be forced to buy similar cheap over hyped products from other manufacturers as well since this is what they vote for when they buy.
People.. You know much better. It's obvious that is the same android samsung phone. Why bother? Don't buy. At least we have have articles to read. Go Samsung!!!. Please make new phones every month. Im not gonna buy your phone, i will just read articles , its free and entertaining. :-)
Samsung is waiting for what to put 4G. Are they heading the Blackberry way ??
As always Samsung knows how to sell. Everybody is familiar with the S line, so it will be bought no matter how expensive it is. People that want to show off will buy it. Nobody actually needs these specs in a phone, there is no need for that HUGE screen. In an era where fast tehnology can be squeezed into tiny hardware I find this type of device shamefull. And lets not forget battery life and storage. But hey, apparently these are the specs that attract the stupid buyers (which "need" such a phone to chat on watsapp, facebook, send a mail, snap a selfie and maybe play a game). Thatz what matters to the company afterall. Everything that this device can do, older less powerfull devices can do also, and while people require more and more storage (which is not expensive anymore), it is completly ignored.
unfortunate, 11 Apr 2014this phone costs R12000 in South Africa that's $1200 (subject to change as per exchange rate) ... moreAs much as i was looking forward to it, im not gonna spend R12000 on it. Id rather buy the S4, S4 is too expensive... more than iPhone 5s

Eshan, 11 Apr 2014exynos version launching in india is much faster than Snapdragon version.... check the gsmaren... moreDo you know exynos version does not support 4G? What is the point in having slightly higher speed, which would not be visible in day to day operations. Which is more important - slightly better speed or 4G support?
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2014No need to buy the phone i will buy HTC M8 or wait for S6 or S7 and S8 still will be the same ... more What is the difference between m8 and m7 ? Nothing. same soda can aluminium with crap camera.

It was ok when even 3G penetration was poor in India. Now, 4G rolled out in Bangalore and other cities will soon get it. Just to get 4G, will you throw your S5 and get another phone spending another Rs.50,000 after 6 months? And iphone owners in India can proudly claim Samsung does not provide 4G phone even for Rs.50,000+ and only they are having it.
