awdi, 30 Apr 2014dont tell me that apple is better then samsung cause i work for apple and i know its problemsDon't tell me that Samsung is better than all of the cellphone brands out there. But I still believe that "there's always someone better than you." That goes to all of us... In the end, it all comes down on how we use/need it, PREFERENCES.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2014Does anyone have any idea what this guy is trying to say?He just hates Apple and the USA.
Of course GOOGLE is from the USA as well, but that doesn't seem to bother him....

Stay clear of AMOLED people!!

MithrandirX, 30 Apr 2014Agreed for the cheaper phones, but for the flagships, I don't.

From Wikipedia about AMOLED: "The organic materials used in AMOLED displays are very prone to degradation over a relatively short period of time, resulting in color shifts as one color fades faster than another, image persistence, or burn-in."
S4 had lots of problem at launch, the GUI was really laggy, the amount of defective batteries must be around 50% of all shipped items and other hardware problems like smearing etc. The S3 launched with 1GB RAM which was too little even for the TouchWiz GUI, etc...
For you the camera is important, for someone else loud sound (which the S5 doesn't have) is more important. So you can't say what is "best" for all people. And like I wrote above, Samsung phones has had plenty of hardware and software problems.
Anomynous, 30 Apr 2014You can buy a high end samsung tablet and you get the same crap, Android tablets generally are... moreDo some research before you talk crap, google the global tablet market share, android rules all the way we even have android notebooks rightnow.
DaXiong, 30 Apr 2014There are phones with the same performance, without AMOLED-burn-in and without region locking ... moreAgreed for the cheaper phones, but for the flagships, I don't.
I know there are devices with similar performances, though the camera is really much better on Samsung flagships compared to other Android flagships.
I've never once experienced AMOLED burn-in, and I've had a few S devices already (and my wife still has a S3 with no issue either).
The AMOLED screen does look better than LCD ones imho though :)
If you buy iphone you waist big money , if you buy Samsung you waist small money and if you buy huawei, lenovo etc you waist nothing. Apple sales chesp phone( $199 for 5s ), in market the price is more than 5 times of actual cost. Samsung galaxy s5 actual cost is $250 but price is still much more in the market. But chinese companies are selling their products in close to actual prices. Those cost above mentioned are bill of materials and assemble cost but why so expensive in the market? Because of profit , advertising cost , research and development , patent , staff and shop rent etc and rest half money is for testing how fool you are.
Best Android App Store is free but Apple have to email i dont need these Apple is not good i love Android better than iOS will low and lose happy USA lost money!
MithrandirX, 30 Apr 2014Well, even people who do know about the technical aspects of the different phones buy Samsung ... moreThere are phones with the same performance, without AMOLED-burn-in and without region locking or knox crap that cost half the money.
The cheaper Samsung phones have bad SoCs, bad screens with bad viewing angles and too little RAM. If you buy Huawei or Lenovo for the same money you get much better phones.

At least Samsung have some substance to their tech, too.
Hell, Apple should sue Samsung for stealing their marketing techniques, more than anything...

Please give us examples of phones that are much better than the S5 and the Note 3, along with the reasons they are, because in my opinion, there really aren't any.. though some are pretty close, or could be better for some people depending on priorities.

Samsung sells because of marketing. Pure advertising so people who don't know better go for Samsung when there are way better phones out there.
SayNo2Sony, 30 Apr 2014Xiaomi is nt bad at all. But Lenovo, yes you will buy 1 and regret it forever. It will be your... moreSo what that you got the lemon phone? You could have paid $1000 for a Samsung or a Sony and still have the same experience, I know many persons that had.
I bought two A850s for relatives and they work fine and they were exceptional value for money compared to other brands (Here in Europe all phones with 5,5" screens are very expensive).
Lots of clueless optinions here...
