Check out the real figures here, by... moreI'm happy to hear that S5 sells will not be as the company expectation, don't rush to defend samsung fan boys I owened sam products from the s3 to s4 to note 10.1 to the galaxy gear but that's it. I had high expectations to the s5 from the rumors but apparently the company wants to stall and add each year a feature because if they put the latest technology in one flagship they will not have anything to offer next year and thats understanable but we will be forced to use the power of people. We will not buy the plastic body and gimmic features. Z2 and m8 is way better S5 don't have 3g of ram, light software, beautiful design we will not buy until you listen to our demands and the sells we continue decreasing year by year from the s3 to s4 to s5 and the next flagship until you sells the phone to the company employees. CHANGE THE BORING PLASTIC DESIGN AND SOFTWARE.
As expected, and proven time and time again, Samsung lied. Check out the real figures here, by a Korean newspaper no less:
Disappointing sales, less than both SGS3 and SGS4 launch.
nothin extraordinary for the price ur paying, too hyped thts it !
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2014Its waterproof, throw it in some cold water to chill off , problem solve it's water resistant as it is only IP67. Not waterproof.
I don't understand the people and how they are thinking. I was waiting for the S5 to replace my S3 and after I saw the damage that happen in the 2 years from the plastic body I make the aluminum body must have in my mind and from what we heard from the rumors befor the S5 launch I was satisfied but in the end when it launch a huge shock. Same plastic body and same design, my s3 had a charging problem so I bought LG g2 which in my opinion although it made of plastic but much better from the S in the build quality and the premier feel with halh the S5 price and you get snap800 ,5.2 1080 lcd display, 13 mg camera with OIP there is no much difference between the S5 and G2 and the g2 is half the price, of you 2014 phone I would suggest the hct m8 or Z2
Walk up people.
All This Talk About The Plastic, Apple And The Lg G2....News Flash But The G2 Looks Like The Note 2. I Dont Understand Why You Hate Or Dislike Samsung But Your On A Samsung Feed.
This new "flagship" from scamsung also comes with the regional lock and KNOX.
To all people out here, I am neither an Apple or a Samsung fanboy. I have used devices from both manufacturers. However I have to say Samsung is really doing good at warding off most of its customers first with locked bootloader (aka KNOX flag) and also with the supposed "region lock".
I happen to be one of the unfortunate victims of the regional lock fuss with the Note3. Not only that but with the new OTA updates, even my S4 has been pushed to the regional lock crap.
I pay a premium price to buy an "unlocked" phone only to end up with a regional lock shit which even the companies customer care cant even answer about properly.
Samsung blatantly lied when they said that after few mins of use in the intended region, the phone is "unlocked" and can be used anywhere in the world. It is not the case. Moreover unlocked phones have ended up being locked again after getting new firmware updates.
S5 buyers, please beware as the same regional lock shit has been used in S5. I used the S2, the S4 and Note3 but I have taken a vow not go give my money to Scamsung anymore.
If anyone has any doubts over what I say, please feel free to visit the numerous forums full of complaints and issues people had to face due to this locking.
Still sold out where I am(UK) but hope for Thursday but pre-orders mean models coming in are going to them obviously..I am glad as well because cannot decide colour,,want white but will it discolour over time and black being so popular is hard to get hold of(from bricks and mortar stores).Blue and gold are out for me plus gold is Vodafone exclusive.
I've already bought mine. It's very good. And for my surprise, I've received a Gear Fit and a S View Cover as gifts.
system.exe, 14 Apr 2014s5 is having over heating problems Its waterproof, throw it in some cold water to chill off , problem solve
S5=S4+₹25,000+Hear Rate Sensor (to measure your hear rate after seeing the price)
in my opinion S5 almost look like s4 in looks and build quality, i was disappointed with my s4, because all the chromium plate at border is chipping itself after a 5-6 months use, now its look like a cheap plastic with black spots at border.
recently i purchased LG G2, Really it impress me a lot,
its looks way more expensive device even though it is plastic device. Build Quality is perfect.
I'm an Android user but would still choose Apple over Samsung.
They churn out such cheaply designed devices devoid of quality.
Irrespective of what you guys think of Samsung or the amount of bashing you throw at them, they will still sell in millions! They didn't get here by mistake - it was carefully planned. And for the "plastic" argument, its old already: ultimately its a matter of choice.
TheNeighbor, 14 Apr 2014Where do you think Apple came up with the iPhone design? By copying and even publicly admittin... moreExcuse me, who told you or where did you read that apple copies designs of other phones especially Samsung. Its actually vice versa. Samsung has to pay Apple around a Billion dollars in patent and design infringements. It has one of the worst designs on the market today and even though fingerprint reader isnt new, the Touch iD revolutionized the way it is actually suppose to be. And screen size is copied from samsung, Dude seriously? are you f****ng kidding me? The battery of iPhone last almost an entire day if it has normal usage. Plus Samsung wasnt the one who introduced LTE in mobile phones and all the phones today available in the market have LTE in them. So you seriously need some kind of medication to think right. iOS 7.1 update is one of the most stable updates in recent times so theres no issue of lagging anymore. Where as Samsung cant even provide 2 software updates for its phone. Its bullshit to not let ur customers update to the latest droid software. Before commenting get your stupid facts correct and dont make a fool out of yourself.
