Eventhough if it made of plastics, it's still sold well on the market compared to other "metal" devices. So, I don’t think Samsung need the "luck" to stay on top of the market.
Dovice, 19 May 2014Lose dem physical buttons Samsung, we want on screen, like all the others.Nope, i have tried small tablets with on screen buttons and they are a lot harder to use than physical buttons plus you do lose a lot of screen space.
This is not true.
the phone is noticeably thicker.
It is most likely a photoshoped pic.
I dont believe it
Geez. The dots on the back of the phone are not even aligned properly.
Dovice, 19 May 2014Lose dem physical buttons Samsung, we want on screen, like all the others.Yeah. And lose actual screen real estate.
this will definitely have much bigger battery as seen by the flush cameera

But then I wonder that if an Android OEM were to release a device that had all that criteria you stated, everything released after that wouldn't sell.
I jokingly think to myself that if I had the resources, I am POSITIVE that I could design a device that would win awards.

-the added sensors (and new camera parts), resulting maybe in a different internal organization, hence the different battery shape for example.
-the original screen which should have been the QHD one, but "apparently" which couldn't make it on time due to costly and hard production as we read. Even LG is making their QHD screens 5.5" for G3, so 5.2" is quite a technological achievement in my opinion and that's surely why Samsung is trying to make a point having them released within same launch window as G3 to steal the spotlights.
-And perhaps heat dissipation for those new cpus, needing maybe a bit more space around them for safety or else, let's say? (you noticed there aren't any small/thin phone with SD800+ cpu nowadays).
So with these, you understand, IF final dimensions are same as standard S5, why the S5 was strangely a bit bigger than its predecessors : last minute changes probably for not reaching their objectives in time this year.
So is it still a removable plastic back?
What a joke. It's nothing more than a regurgitated GS5 with a metal frame.
I suppose if you are releasing a device on a weekly basis, your designs are going to fall way short.
while i'm disappointed yet again by samsung if this is indeed the 'premium' s5, however it's their right to treat its customers like idiots, just as its our decision not to buy their vastly overpriced plastic toy phones - i wont be. i also think sometimes there must be some sort of mobile phone fixing going on between companies. how else can so many companies always get close to great phones yet mess up glaringly in various aspects i.e.
samsung - disgraceful industrial design, large bezels, bloated ugly confusing mess that is touchwiz, and rear mounted speaker.
htc - terrible camera choices, and stupid decision to put htc logo on useless black bezel, rather than make the phone shorter.
sony - massive bezels, too large.
lg - software that is a cheap copy of touchwiz, and choice of cheap plastics in design, no micro sd, rear speaker.
one plus one - no micro sd, far far too big (although given the price, certainly allowable)
how hard is it to combine the best elements of a nice balanced metal phone, with micro sd, front facing speakers, small bezels, and either stock android at a reasonable price or am i just asking too much?
Sorry Samesung....good internal specs, same old boring design and your touchwiz UI sucks ass...keep adding more RAM, your UI is the reason for laggy phones.
Very, very nice. It's a nicely refined version of the existing S5, and looks quite sleek. I hope that the battery is still user-replaceable (a HUGE selling feature, as batteries fail over time), and the specs are very welcome as well.
If this is real, I will have a hard time choosing between this and the Note 3. I'm not bothered by the cost.
Thats a joke...
If that thing is real.in my opinion actually samsung is playing with the emotions of metal phone lovers...
Basicaly samsung is afraid to experiment.
