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..
AnonD-237024, 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????
AnonD-237024, 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.
AnonD-66693, 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

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.

AnonD-237024, 08 Apr 2014Weird though. Nearly everyone hated the device, but ALL OF A SUDDEN everyone likes it. I'm ... moreAnd why are you "genuinely confused"? As the old saying goes, don't judge the book by its cover. After this review, people start to change opinions. Why? Because what's the inside outweighs what's the outside.(you know what I mean ;-)) Hope you're not confused now.
AnonD-66693, 08 Apr 2014It doesn't matter if you give a damn or not but your opinion somewhat "very hateful"... moreThe reason I'm angry is because I expect alot from Samsung. I mean, I think the Galaxy S3 was the last good S they made. The GS4 is my favourite S. My rage will soon pass over with the dawn of the Note 4/iPhone 6. Trust me mate, it was a lot worse when the device was announced. NEARLY EVERYONE hated it. A year of waiting wasted IMO. But my review/opinion isn't full of hate. The new Touchwiz is awesome and the 16mp is cool. I just feel like Samsung ran out of innovation. Just imagine it, something you really liked you were waiting for and you thought it would be awesome. And then when it does happen and its not what you thought it was, you would be disappointed wouldn't you? That's how I felt when the S5 was announced. But I don't hate it as much as I used to, the phone is good, but not as good as I thought it would be, that's all.
The UI is no advantage over the S4 right? The S4 should get it in a while, no?
AnonD-237024, 08 Apr 2014Weird though. Nearly everyone hated the device, but ALL OF A SUDDEN everyone likes it.
I'm ... moreYou are spot on. I too was unhappy with Samsung in release of S5. But in RELATIVE terms, it is better than the other one. So now people are starting to like it.
But I was more disappointed with New HTC M8. There is no upgrade to my current M-7 and on top of that, they made it larger, heavier with no improvement in already a bad camera. I will not sell my HTC One M-7, though and hand over to someone in family.
Now when I want to buy a new phone, HTC One M-8 is out of question. Sony phone too is very big for me to handle. So S5 appears to be a better choice as I am not going to Apple OS. I have spent quite a bit on Android. Apple is better but releases two flagship a year.
