Better go for Samsung S4 Advance i9506... half the price and almost the same hardware.
Anonymous, 17 Apr 2014Tell me one thing that S5 does better. More ram? No. Better resolution? Hell no. Bigger bezel... moreMaybe people got it for ir blaster, best screen, download boost, multi window, power saving mode, good battery, heart rate sensor, paypal paymemts with fingerprint,16mp with 4k, 1080p, ips 67.......All Apple had to do was add a fingerprint scanner and a 64 bit chip that accomplishes nothing.
Apple (iPhone) is the king of smartphone in USA & Japan.
Samsung Galaxy is the king of the world's smartphone
Here's why..... All in the sane website... LoL.....
Virakroeun, 17 Apr 2014Shitty pictures? I guess you'll never use Sony's Xperia Z1.Shitty is indeed to strong a word, but I meant that the pictures looked much worse compared to the S4 and S5.
I admit I've never had a Sony Z1, but I've seen plenty of camera comparisons where the Z1 or Z2 was part of it.
In all these comparisons, I was always wondering why the Z1 pictures were always looking much worse than the Exynos version of the S4 (that's the one I had before the S5) although the sensor was supposed to be the same (Sony's own Exmor RS IMX135).
I'm not saying they were ugly, but it felt like wasted potential.
In more recent comparisons, the Z2 doesn't seem to do much better than the Z1 unfortunately, but again, I'm basing myself on numerous camera comparisons on review sites, so I don't have first hand experience with it.
Anonymous, 17 Apr 2014Are you referring to the exynos or snapdragon version?The snapdragon version.
I haven't tried the Exynos one.

Its not even a contest. You just have a very tiny mind.

there's a lot of visible noise and the noise reduction is still strong enough to smear out some of the fine detail (especially in darker areas of the image). We also had issues with the camera missing the focus in several images.
Actually, it looks like there's a lens defect as the image just right of the center looks softer than it should be (we even checked for smudges on the camera and retook the photos). So much for "Sony G Lens"

This story is so untrue, go ask store for yourself. Staff have sad Samsung have not sold no where near as much as the S4. In fact, the Phone to beat is the HTC One (M8) as far as new phones go.
The best-selling phone right now is still IPhone 5S.
This surprises me, I don't know if I've had my head in the sand but hype around the S5 seems muted compared to the S4 last year.
I wonder where this leaves the (both better in my opinion) Z2 and M8?
Virakroeun, 17 Apr 2014Shitty pictures? I guess you'll never use Sony's Xperia Z1.Yeah man, you saw what he typed. The Z1 camera sucks for a 20mp sensor. The Z1 takes photos that are only as good as a 13mp phone at best. Might as well broaden your view of the competition's cameras.
So sad to read so much spite & negativity all based on allegiance to a mobile phone brand! I can only presume this is due to either inferiority complex or what must be a horrible realization that you've possibly made a bad choice in the past & are desperately scrambling to vent justification to lessen insecurities.
Surely it would be more sensible to wait until real time figures & stats come out for a proper comparison of sales & a devices' success rate?
For all of you who still feel the need to bash competing brands & display your insecurities, please consider the following infamous phrase those of us without such levels of desperation can appreciate: -
"Haters gonna hate" ;)
I knew that there will be lots of negative comments from Samsung haters. They are probably happy with cheap androids or lumias.
