Nice to see the manufacturers now starting to focus on minimizing the bezels.
KP, 12 Jun 2014What about apple then?? Havent they being showcasing the same dull design for the past decade? Yes, and they're overpriced, but the build quality has always been well above Samsung.
ozmoi, 12 Jun 2014This is very unfair for the people who bought Samsung S5 already. They can't just release an &... moreyou either don't own an S5 and your lying or your just a nerd that needs to get out more...
This is very unfair for the people who bought Samsung S5 already. They can't just release an "upgrade version" of S5 3 months after they release S5! If this is the real "S5 Prime" am gonna smash my S5 to pieces and buy an LG G3, Am Sooooo done with Samsung!
Well no, this is not LG-like bezels size. LG did it better and keeping almost identical design Samsung, that's a fail...
Samfan, 12 Jun 2014The only thing I hate on my Galaxy s 5 is the thick bezels and the lack of optical image stabi... moreyour wish has come true, otherwise why would they release this thing? it must have things the regular s5 lacked...
If it lools like metal but feels plastic as lg g3 crap then i wont buy that.. i want a phone with metal feel otherwise whats the point doing a prim version might aswell buy the regular s5 if i wanted plastic ?
Samfan, 12 Jun 2014The only thing I hate on my Galaxy s 5 is the thick bezels and the lack of optical image stabi... moreIf you like it...just buy the LG G3...because as the review says. (another play out of LG's Book!!)
Please stop this lying about compactness. No phone with a 5.3 inch screen can ever be compact even if it had no bezels at all. 4.7 inch screened phones are the limit for compactness and even those are rarely compact
Fonefentik, 12 Jun 2014What about those who shall not be slagged off same design for 4 years????????????????What about apple then?? Havent they being showcasing the same dull design for the past decade?
Thats actually looks an impressive device.
If they do a good job on the Note 4, I may forgive Samsung for the S5.
Fonefentik, 12 Jun 2014What about those who shall not be slagged off same design for 4 years????????????????Are you talking about iPhone!
by the quick look of it (shading, fonts...) is a fake photoshop!!!
not even need to look twice (just look on perpective correction and how fonts do not fit screen for example)
"Samsung does already have a
metal Galaxy flagship in the face of Galaxy J, but
that's only available in its home market."
i thought Galaxy J is for Japanese market?
Cool.kid, 12 Jun 2014Even cooler than s5??? S5 isn't cool, in fact it's very ugly compared to any other phone (even cheap chinese have descent design).
You think it's cool because you are brainless
The thin bezels are a welcome change and only thing positive of the metallization of the same old plastic design.
If it's QHD I expected them to empploy similar tricks like LG G3 to curb the power consumption by changing contrast, reducing maximum and average brightness levels etc. It's the only way to make the battery life comparable to the current S5.
That 16MP Sony OIS unit is the most interesting thing.
