this phone costs R12000 in South Africa that's $1200 (subject to change as per exchange rate) but come on who's buying that?
Just went on sale in Europe for an equivalent of $1000 (bundled with Gear, yes, not Gear2 but Gear!). Even HTC priced the new One around $100 lower at launch. Samsung has gone mad!
Got mine thru Postpaid in the Phillipines. Costs around $780 if you purchase it. Not bad at all but incomparable with note3. Both are great phones though.
It costs $1100 USD in Ecuador its too expensive for the same smartphone ever.
No need to buy the phone i will buy HTC M8 or wait for S6 or S7 and S8 still will be the same as S3 and S4
in Malaysia it cost rm2399(16gb) same as note 3 32gb lte. better buy note 3
Rs 51500 for the Samsung Galaxy Non Snapdragon Version in India is too expensive.
People should wait for a few weeks and there would def be a price drop.
Sammy is trying to rip Indians by given them an inferior phone compared to the US Snapdragon version.
According to Samsung, only the people in the States should use the premium Samsung Galaxy S5 and the rest of most of the World, especially Asian countries can be dumped with the non snapdragon version.
Shame on you Samsung.
Thanks samsung for launching the exynos version in India, the real samsung processor with eight cores defeating overclocked snapdragon 801 (2.5 ghz) at just (1.9 ghz). I bought samsung galaxy S3 for the same reason which was a quad core phone which beats 2gb dual core snapdragon version at that time . Haters gonna hate real buyers will still buy galaxy S5-smartphone of the the year.
NJ, 11 Apr 2014This is so dammmmm...... expensive in India... $875it costs $770 in Bangladesh.
Looks like only the silly low 16gb sim free version is currently available in the UK, not sure when the more useful 32gb will be launched??
Such a disappointment. Saw the phone today at mtn. No difference between the phone and my S4. Buying Note 3 is far much better
i wish it had
2)3GB Ram(it would have even better performance)
3)3200mah battery(it would have blown away other phones in battery life)
But great specs as always.
You know, most people who buy s5 is not a tech geek. They don't care if it is exynos or snapdragon. They don't care about benchmark.
All they concern (including me) is a phone that looks good, feels good, and can do its job well.
So, congrats for samsung for the on time launching. I wish you well.
Guys There is no Snapdragon version available for India. Moreover Note 3 has 3GB of RAm with snapdragon it is already available in 44,000 INR.
Samsung S5 in India only White color, What a shame as per my knowledge there will no other launch till next week, so then Samsung has cheated us with Citi bank credit card offer , as this is available only for 3 days 11 12 13 april, so those who want black , blue or golden color will not get that benefits & even they have to stay waiting till may 1st week. was never really expected this thing from samsung. I am from Bangalore..
