Same price as it's rivals but without a premium design.
Slow Camera startup.
Reported lag in games.
Seriously, this phone is only hyped up by "certain" websites.
I'll wait for the next LG flagship.
Dats what am talkin !bout... Awesome phone... As 4 stereo speakers.... I use headphones wen am outside... Plug into the sound system wen am @ home.. Cuz wen I listen to music, I want to hear EVERYTHING...[ BassPlayerSpeakin.] Tho I waz impressed one time wen a friend was playin music on some ipad with stereo speakers... Wasn't terrible sha... But I don't think havin a very loud phone is a do or die stuff...
HTC one M8 users tried to justify their purchase by putting hating words for galaxy S5. M8 is no match for GS5 in terms of camera. Those who says HTC's ultra pixel is great needs some real good eyes. I am having s4 but wont be buying this for atleast 2-3 months as prices are insane.
DehMacLuvr, 08 Apr 2014The reason I'm angry is because I expect alot from Samsung. I mean, I think the Galaxy S3 was ... moreYeah I know what you mean I was one of the disapppinted ones..Its grown on me since and with battery life/cam/audio quality tests in I am more impressed..Whether I will keep S5 I cant say I swap phones all the time but ususally between Android and IOS. If BB or W8 got some reverb settings then I would try them again,,personnel choice..
Fruitcake. In a hurry trolling so you forgot to switch your autocorrecting dictionary to English?
The early rumours about what Samsung were going to Offer on the Galaxy S5,got everybody Expecting a Super phone from Samsung,but the Announce date was nothing like what Samsung put on for the Galaxy S4,an Samsung have left alot of people upset with Galaxy S5,an Samsung have now Really got to Change there Smartphone Plans,an Start Releasing Premium Smartphones Like Apple Produce,with Better Quality Built an Preformance,another thing Samsung an the other Produces have got to realise the Current Mobile Contracts are 24 month not 12 month,so alot of people will still be under contract with the Galaxy S4,so the Galaxy S5 might not be so Popular until the Price of the phone starts to Drop
Well i am impressed and now buying one,,just need to see it in real life to decide colour..
DehMacLuvr, 08 Apr 2014I know the reason why they added a USB cover, to get its IP67 rating. Buy I find it ridiculous... moreok, i see. But my comment is for the above review. I'm sorry I'm confused. Are you involved the team who wrote the above review? FYI, I don't like GS 5 design too.
The fanboys here are crazy. They are trying to deny everything in this review to try and give the edge to Sony or HTC. Sorry, but Samsung has won this round fair and square.
Its like Samsung doesn't know S5 has to b A SPECIAL UPGRADE...It just doesn't "FEEL" like a worthy upgrade from s4...save from the camera and chipset...If I av xtra cash to throw away MAYB I will get one but it doesn't feel like I MUST like the previous S series ....ANYBODY FEELING ME????
DehMacLuvr, 08 Apr 2014Well, looks like I'm the listed hated person on the comments.Haha. You must understand human behavior. If you don't want to get trolled, just keep your hate comments away from the Internet. Be alert and always evaluate your statement. Back up your statement with solid proof and your reasons in a sensible way.
huhuhu, 08 Apr 2014Yeah, I also was disappointed when S5 announced but when I think again, hey, it is just a year... moreThe phone is significantly expensive than s4 and note 3 ,doesnt makes it a great deal
Well, looks like I'm the listed hated person on the comments.
DehMacLuvr, 08 Apr 2014When GSMArena did a news article on the moment it was announced. There were loads of hate comm... moreYou cannot conclude just by looking how many the hate comments are. How about the people who did not comment? Aren't you're suppose to count them aswell?

What's important is it delivers what the customer needs and practical at the same time. Gimmicks, that's a different story.
Ugly, not on par with other flagships, I would never dish out so much money for a smartphone that looks this bad regardless of how good it's specifications are, HTC, LG and Sony have prettier phones and I consider Z2 to be the best of all,looks good,Sony has great build quality and its specifications are better than Galaxy S5. Unless one is a Samsung fanboy choosing between S5 and Z2 is a no brainer. What I like about Sony is that even their low end models like Xperia M still come with very nice design and build quality. Low end Samsungs look and feel very cheap. I used to own Galaxy S2 and until Samsung improves design and build quality I am not buying another Samsung again, plus Xperia UI is much prettier and faster than Touchwiz.
