Stondec100, 13 Apr 2014This is really interesting, despite the large scale hatred from all corners.
This phone is c... moreI would have bought the HTC flagship phone, but after they started imitating Apple hype with their metal back covers, and blabbing about the looks of the phone and not the specs, not to mention putting in a locked down battery, I decided that HTC was just, well, crap and have never looked back.
If Apple began producing modern smart phones not those retro locked down coffin phones of theirs, I would consider them especially since Mr Cook, unlike the con-artist Steve Jobs, is a really great man.
I'll still take the LG G2 or the HTC ONE M8 both are better phones and even better I'll wait for the LG G3 with QHD screen and SIM card Samsung phones all look alike for the past 4 years why don't they try and make something that looks a little different every year! Samsung and Apple the two worst phones on the market and the sheep come every year to buy them just cause everybody else does quantity does not equal quality! FACT!
AnonD-253730, 13 Apr 2014in india it wont be the same as they are offering test processors every time instead of snapdr... moreDon't worry, People of India will make Samsung realize how big mistake they did by launching less capable phone in India with huge price.
Virtruvian, 13 Apr 2014Removable backs for a an extra battery? Is it still 2011?
There are plenty of power option... moreYes removable batteries are cool. I hate those power cases. They make a phone unsightly and heavy.
Ruben, 13 Apr 2014I've had my S5 since Monday and he'll yea it's bad ass! switched From iPhone to samsung. . Wha... moreYes, the iPhone is nothing to brag home about. But if you are not all up there, it is a good phone. That is why seniors have taken to it so readily. My problems is seeing presumably cool people carrying the iPhone and thinking they are, laugh, cutting edge.
AnonD-245546, 13 Apr 2014Ha ha ha! and haters gonna hate! this is ugly phone, body is made of plastikc and sony and htc... moreYou're right..
Others are waiting to get coke cans or glass..to wrap it in an ugly plastic case :D :D
Got my S5 yesterday and it's a fantastic smartphone. stunning screen and great build quality.
It looks a lot better in real than on pictures.
Galaxy S5 is a great phone. I have paired it with a completely clear case from LUVVITT. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D50GVIW/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller= Looks awesome!
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2014Well I am working in mobile phone store I think We sold more S4 than S5 when they were initial... moreiphone's sales figure is better because Apple was able to win the trust of people with highly optimized OS along with nice piece of hardware and other useful features. Do you think HTC one(M8)is bad at all from any point of view? its just that HTC is unable to promote its product like samsung. They don't have the marketing tactics like samsung. Android needs to be optimized like Windows and IOS so that smooth people will get user experience.
TheNeighbor, 13 Apr 2014Until we have a technology that finally can hold 10 times more capacity for power using silico... moreYou hit it on the nail. Tis one of the reason why the S5 is the best smart phone in the market. I also love the textured back cover. Hate metal covers.
Very excited to get the S5. Love the plastic cover and the grip. The hardware is amazing. Can't imagine a metal back cover.
Ha ha ha! and haters gonna hate! this is ugly phone, body is made of plastikc and sony and htc is better yeah? waiting for Z2 and ONE sale numbers...
All you haters go and ...
KEEP GOING SAMSUNG...
This is one of the oldest marketing srategy they just lie so people will develop intrest
Samsung galaxy s5 rules the phone market these haters need keep there commit there self
TheNeighbor, 13 Apr 2014Until we have a technology that finally can hold 10 times more capacity for power using silico... moreDude temme one thing. Why is everyone except apple using quad core processors when infact a good dual core processor is equally powerful enough for a phone. iPhone 5s is as fast in the graphics department and most of the times more powerful than the S5. And the 1560 mah is good enough for powering a super powerful Dual core processor and the finger print sensor. Are samsung living in the 20th century by giving a swipe type fingerprint sensor (which actually doesnt work & the Touch iD is far superior)And that also after apple introduced it with 5S. So temme why would any1 want to buy the S5 when you get a way advanced & better phones fron other manufacturers like HtC & Sony. Samsung is just a big copy cat company that has no innovative ideas of its own. It is proved by the way they design the phone. All galaxy devices aftr S2 look the same. It needs to stop copying apple and start innovating their own designs & features.
Dr RAJA, 13 Apr 2014Yes, haters will hate! Samsung is the best! But the Sony z2 is better!That's a contradictory statement. What country are you from?
bruinznewf, 13 Apr 2014Best...comment...ever...Thanks bruinznewf!
Unfortunately it already appears, from succeeding comments, it didn't sink in with everyone.
I personally like it when I read that infamous phrase '...Haters gonna hate...'
So true. What can you do eh? ;)
nik, 13 Apr 2014i hate samsung, they cheat consumers by faking the benchmark test, they wont replace the fault... moreFirst off, that benchmarking was fixed with KitKat, second off, Plastic isnt reminiscent with cheap. Your Apple is showing. Why post a hate post? If you don't like it, not going to buy it, then move along. Can't stand Apple's "take what we give you and like it because we said so" crap. But I'm not going out of my way to post it everywhere. Grow up.
