Take forever and nothing notable happens even after the update arrives

In the end it is still the overall best device and still overall the largest update among flagships despite that factor. As well luckily 2GB suffices most.
As for the no excuses. I mean come one. They had 3gb and used it prior. They were first if i remember. Plus on top of that most people using 3gb are using a Samsung chip. And more on top of that they almost have 4gb ready which is more than likely to be in the note 4.
So why on Earth did they stick to 2GB on S5?

Samsung made a terrible decision in NOT UPDATING RAM to at least 3 - 4 gigs. Although by hind sight, the polished graphics, larger screen and "floating" on water make up some how for what is lacking.
Let's face it, Galaxy end-users are very particular about their devices, hence the drop in sales in Q3.
We expected MORE from the Galaxy line. I just hope that The S6 is much superior.
I've had been a long time Apple I phone user, since the 3GS days but I saw Apple's marketing agenda,which is" squeeze" all the money their clientele has and make a profit. I left the iPhone for Samsung.
Here's proof, today apple split their market shares from 600+ per one share in order to atract more fools in the mix, allowing the stock to be more "accessible" to consumers and investors alike.
Enough for today children.
OK, but why are people waiting for iphone 6 and avoid the s5? Probably one factor is represented by the fact that samsung comes with crappy updates, no new features and s2, s3, s4, note 2 buyers are changing perferences.
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2014Funny though how Android is respobsible for 99 % of the mobile spyware and malwareFunny how that malware is just hyped bull crap that has barely ever actually effected anyone...
Where as those crashes and limitations are a real and vast thing plaguing ios
All about price.if all smartphone or whatever you guys say cost only us$100, i believe no one will comment about the hell spec
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2014Dream that will never come trueIts almost true already :)
even before bigger iPhone samsung is only one who can sell good amount of hiend phones.
I suspect most are holding out to see what the Note4 and GS Prime are like before buying just as I am rather than waiting on the new iPhone.
Mostly not because of the iPhone 6, but because the Galaxy S5 Prime!!!!!! And LG G3!

And the fluidity and simplicity of the OS. Switched to L1320 and the only thing I miss from Apple is the app store. No one can ever match that. Period.

For a simple reason that the Galaxy S series has becoming more and more Meh & Bleh...
MdN8, 07 Jun 2014Yes! Your NSA spyware is so much better than their NSA spyware! :-)Funny though how Android is respobsible for 99 % of the mobile spyware and malware
it has more to do than just the iphone, 1) the lg g3 is a better phone period. 2) Samsung has a S5 prime coming out, why would you settle for a decent samsung phone when you can get the same one but better, 3) the competition is just getting better, you have HTC and Sony are making better and better flagships (excluding LG because it's already mentioned). 4) Other less popular and newer manufactures are gaining grown such as Xaimi OPPO and OnePlus are slowing gaining popularity in the world cellphone market. Apple will always be in the top 3, but Samsung will probably slip more and more as the competition gets stronger.
