have anyone actualy looked at the zoomed photos of s5? s5 from s4 definitely looks better with less plasticy look. The color option copper and blue looks pretty neat.
There were several changes at the launching if you noticed. The presenter was different. They use the guy from Samsung rather than a host from the host country.
Even JK Shin didn't look excited about s5. The show which usually last more than 1 hour (as in s3, s4, and note series), only last less than 1 hour. That showed nothing exciting about the phone.
I don't know whats going on, but i personally think it was a disaster.
Is it possible for Samsung to go back to drawing board and redesign the s5 and launch that in April or May?
Or are they preparing for another co-flagship phone before the note4 launch in september?
Eddie321, 27 Feb 2014"You can go now on ebay, and have one for $60 . And in few months they will be many more.... moreYeah um...You mean jealous lying trolls?
Even on the S3 the space is fairly shared. And I'm talking the 16gb. And what do you have to complain about speed?
You have 32gb and 64gb cards that can be gotten pretty cheap that can write speeds up to 40mbs and read up to 70 or 80mbs....So what speed issue? Now 128GB if you want.
So......32gb plus 64gb uhs sdxc? or 128gb.
Does it mean that they should keep skimping the 64gb internal when they make it for others? No. But is it nearly as bad as you or the those lying trolls want it to be? No.

Do you not read, listen, and understand the concept? And you called other people ignorant? Its not about the price difference but the efficiency, speed, and trouble free differences between internal and external memory. How often was the bloatware filled S4 owners complaining about little internal memory to start and had trouble moving apps and games to an external memory card? Sure it can be done but the efficiency and the convenience of it being done is horrible that merit a reason to spend more on internal memory to boot.
The Auto Focus system looks pretty awesome! Everything else. Meh!
of course no one here could deny that samsung galaxy s5 is really really ugly.... looks cheap, that's a shame if you are to pay premium for a device that is made of plastic that tries (and miserably fails) to look like leather. that is pathetic. i bet the new HTC One will kick this crap.

thabi, 26 Feb 2014Lg g2 is the better than s5.. Battery and stylish and body display style... EtcYeah....no
What about battry life...or we always need to use ULTRA POWER SAVING which convert display in black n white?????#
Lg g2 is the better than s5..
Battery and stylish and body display style... Etc
Note-3, S4 and now S5. Again no FM-RDS built in radio.. So I’m not impressed. Moving on to better priced and better design brand.
see its backside, what a poor designing.
Samsung should improve itt
AnonD-226711, 26 Feb 2014WTF? 32GB plus 128GB is just perfect. It's 150GB, ignorant. And the price is not even clos... more"On the world"?? Seriously, you don't think I'm floating around in space sipping tequila wth Slim Helu n fiddling with the grand new Galaxy S5 whose tech specs r truly out of this world, do you?? ROFLMAO! Everyone knows that d more d internal memory d better off the phone is, as apps need internal storage to function properly and the option of moving to SD card is pretty glitchy. Also, given the fact that the latest Android ROMs and d preloaded crapwares occupy a chunk of what little space is actually available 2 d user, it's imperative these days to have a minimum of 32/64/128 GB options. Plus, phones are already providing UHD video capture and we all know how mammoth sized UHD files can be. Pretty soon even TB level storage might seem inadequate once we start having full-fledged UHD content ubiquitously. When phone companies can churn out ever bigger n sharper screens every year, y can't they improve on the memory and provide longer-lasting batteries?? That's my point. These specs are always left out and phone storage has barely improved in nearly d last decade. As for that, there are millions IN the world who would agree with me. And as for your 128 GB SD cards, they're still barely available and r prohibitively pricey. Surely, NON-IGNORANT people like yourself know that? Gd luck with your S5 purchase buddy!
I don’t like galaxy gear1 at all but gear2 seems very big upgrade with interesting features .
2. Heart rate sensor
3. Changeable strip + better camera located
5. Smoother ui
6. Longer battery life even reduce minor in mah ( we’ve to wait and see in real test ）
7. Play music with no need of rely on phone
If price right gear2 will rock on 2014

By the way , only iboys commenting on the tech sites and tech-iSites are speaking about the cheap "premium aluminum" supremacy/
Normal ppl can not see if the frame is metal or not.(by the way metal is the worst material for phones)
I can bet on that even the journalists on the congress didn't know if the frame of of S5 is metal or not. If they didn't ask/ LOL

What on earth does that prove???
Oh that you're a jealous hater so you used a know fact to try and make an illogical statement. Got you.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2014High quality polycarbonate is cheap plastic??? Samsung uses "high quality policarbonate"? I don't think so, high quality policarbonate is what I have on my unibody Lumia, much better quality, I can't see my bezel paintjob scratching and exposing white plastic, like Galaxy's do.
I can say that I wasn't impressed much by S5, but I can't deny the great features S5 has:
1. Bigger battery and bigger display with no increasing the size.
2, Great brightness from 4 , up to 500 nit (WOW)
3.Putting the fingerprint sensor (useless feature but well advertized by apple propaganda) with no sacrificing the bezels, as Apple do.
4. Better SoC and graphic .
5. Water and dust-proved.
6. Greatest (may be) camera. Not only because of the MP.
No one say what type of image stabilization it has, though? Why? It was the first thing the media cares so far about camera.LOL
7, Black-and-white mode and battery management, for great battery life
8.Much harder fiber-glass casing
9.Camera recording 4K UHD (2160p)
And many more.

And the price is not even close to 64GB iphone 5S.
