Watch "S5 vs .50 cal" it's simply awesome. Seeing the bullet rip through this plastic thing made my day.
nazur, 16 Apr 2014just buy a lumia and you will have that with excellence in quality :PIf Windows Phone had Android's features and looks, it could be an alternative OS.iOS is something I'd never take instead of an Android phone, because it felt like a dumb phone - not a serious smartphone OS in my opinion.
Gelvin - Maximus, 16 Apr 2014And those S4's include the Octa and S600 and S800 and Dual sim and single sim variants too rig... moreIf I was the owner of Samsung, I don't know why I would consider that bad at all. I sold 40 million S4s. The 40 million number is excluding the S800 version, btw. And I don't think there was a dual sim of the S4. Octa and S600 differentiated the LTE and 3G market, pretty much the same as differentiating for CDMA and GSM market, so what is the problem? I don't get what you consider "bad" here.
joonius, 16 Apr 2014Yeah but it's not like those 11+ variants were in overlapping markets or people buy multiple v... moreAnd those S4's include the Octa and S600 and S800 and Dual sim and single sim variants too right? Doesn't matter which market. It's not a single phone that sold 40 millions. It's actually 6+ phones that have sold 40 million. Quite bad compared to S3, isn't it?
All in all, the Samsung argument is simply not as compelling as before. Plenty of rivals, equal if not better. Galaxy was probably dominant at SGS3, with SGS4 getting spillover. SGS5 not as convincing anymore with competition improving leaps and bounds.
nazur, 16 Apr 2014just buy a lumia and you will have that with excellence in quality :PI had a Lumia, it has totally blocked access, like iOS (bluetooth, files...).
I really prefer the freedom of Android.
Gelvin - Maximus, 16 Apr 2014Whatever. Do you know its official. Samsung sold 11+ S4 variants 40 million...Yeah but it's not like those 11+ variants were in overlapping markets or people buy multiple variants just to have them. They still sold 40+ million Galaxy S4s.
I don't get the S4 hate. Same body but everything underneath was changed. S3 seems like a phone 2 generation behind, so great is the difference in almost everything from s4. And then you have s5, unnecessarily big, even more gimmicky, still plastic with slightly better internals. Only the camera is great but s4's camera was great too...
It would be bad news for everyone if S5 will sell better, it will show that sloppy attempts are good enough..
1 ooo ooo ooo, 16 Apr 2014Look out..soon gElvin will come and convince you all that they can't do it...Whatever. Do you know its official. Samsung sold 11+ S4 variants 40 million...
Mobilemaster, 16 Apr 2014You should wait, and see what will happen! Do not judge too quickly. Samsung is working on Tiz... moreOkay here why I don't believe in Tizen OS, Google have first of all a good reputation with is Google search engine which still providing a lot of money, the company Google have a lot of patents through Motorola with secure them against like Windows or Apple. Google have a big range of developers, Google have almost the same market power than Apple but with thebiggest range of free apps. Google have his own Google software well optimised on Android Market and some came pre install in the OS. Google is mature enough to release better support than Tizen. Many companies are using Android OS for free including Samsung products which secured somehow their background and many are still coming to join the Google technology. Last of all Tizen will not face Android at first the will have to fight against the Windows OS, Ubuntu OS and so on while Windows OS keep on winning grounds and get matured with the Windows Mobile 8 OS, and the upcoming 8.1 is promising better and the full support of Nokia which is part of Microsoft and some companies like HTC and even Samsung are supporting the Windows OS too.
With all that I don't see Tizen OS so successful.
just buy a lumia and you will have that with excellence in quality :P
lovesamsung, 16 Apr 2014Haters gonna hate Hater? Me an Samsung hater no I don't hate but I do judge the product. I have the GS1, GS1 with no problems until I sold them, I both the GS3 after 3 days of using the phone fall down and big crack on the screen. Then I choose the Note series with the original Note very good but after one year then "Network not registered" message and battery life problem. Then the GS2 I still have it but also same message "Network not registered" so I'm using it on Internet via Wifi trough my Motorola Moto G I did love them but I will sold the GNote 2 also and wait for something else no Samsung and not even the one with Tizen OS. So I did love and bought several times Samsung products but wanna change. You are a Samsung lover that your choice but I love the Android OS which makes Samsung so popular that why I have been using Samsung because of Android far from me Tizen unless they convinced me otherwise Android phone Roles.
Look out..soon gElvin will come and convince you all that they can't do it...
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2014how do you know that?did you ever use a device running on tizen?Its samsung, need i say more? Bloat, you know? Do i really need to mention Bada also?
They already confirmed all S-apps is ported to tizen, thats already a boatload of defective software.
