Doesn't give you the 100% battery power transfer to your iPhone, covers up that "premium" build you keep bragging and becomes dead weight after. How is this premium to you?
Oh, right... You need it covered to protect from easy scratches:
And to trick yourself from the fact that Apple didn't provide enough of a battery to get you through the day. Very premium.

A dual core is laggy only running Android ...
2010's thecnology ? Are you speaking about the first (and only) 64-bit on the market ?
Sometimes is better to shut up ....
Anonymous , 18 Apr 2014$199 of build material is a Premium phone??.. Great Ask yourself the very same question.
Is $256.00 worth of build materials for the S5 a premium mobile?
Never mind...I already know the answer.
So phones with avg. score of 4.2 are selling 10x better than phones with 9.0 score. Nokia, Sony, and HTC fanboys take note. Why ??? People love plasik, hahaaahaa.
Anonymous , 18 Apr 2014$199 of build material is a Premium phone??.. Great Well, the materials used in Gresso phones are gold, silver, and titanium but they aren't 'premium' phones to me. Their specs are horrible. The cost of build material doesn't constitute a premium phone to some people.

Anonymous , 18 Apr 2014$199 of build material is a Premium phone??.. Great Research and development, workers' salary, factory maintenance, shipping and handling of materials, media events, commercials, safety and reliability tests, shipping and handling of finished product, warranty repairs, and a lot more expenses that doesn't stop at just the cost of the materials to build the phone.
I went from Note 3 back to iPhone 5S. Couldn't be happier. The iPhone 5s with 1GB of ram, and only a dual core CPU is faster in EVERY WAY than the quad core cpu with 3gb of ram on note 3..
its probably a comercial gimik ...on most sites about technology says the same thing ...samsung sell S5 like hot bread ...one is to increase the company market share from investors and second to make people belive that they need to get a S5 if it sels like candy then it prob have to be a very good phone and the stock is limited , we will see the real statistics in abotu 2 months
It is not shocking news. When iphone 6 come the samsung users turn also because of trade in strategy marketing.

Still, if you have to charge your mobile, you have to charge it....just the way it is. It's very, very rare that ppl are never near a power source.
Some people also simply do not know how to tailor their device to meet their needs, & conserve batter life.
geordie81, 17 Apr 2014But statistics dont lie, 38% of people upgrading are leaving their so called 'premium build' d... moreWell...38% of how many? The article doesn't say how many ppl 38% is exactly.
Nevertheless, you're right, it does all come down to what the user prefers, but I just find it tough to swallow that Samsung has YET to make an all metal clad mobile. They have the money, the R&D dept, & the resources, not to mention that Samsung's failure to deliver a metal device is alienating potential new users that want a metal mobile.
I just think it would cover all their bases if they at least made it an option & the consumer had a choice. I believe it would be a huge success.
Ppl can say what they want about Apple or HTC or Sony, but if you they ever actually held one, there is no denying that they are really impressive works of tech.
A colleague bought an iPhone 5s,from his 4s. Despite my advice to get an Android phone, he ends up charging his 5s twice or trice a day just so he can make it through the day. Wow, heavy users of these "premium" devices with non-removable batteries are sure happy carrying charges and power banks so they can keep up how good theirs look.
Never a problem with a removable battery system, and great performances from the top devices Samsung offers.

these days Samsung is doing quite well,as result of that .....haters are not gonna hate but gonna die.
the top Samsung haters:
1.Sony fan kids (the most haters)(sorry down voting didn't stop the sales of gs5)
2.Microsoft's nokia fan boys(living in the past)
3.htc fan boys (they can't face htc and tell her your ultrapixel camera is bull s%@&%.)
4.iPhone fan boys(they have the right to hate because Samsung did indeed copy some of the iPhone features)
