Bernie, 10 Apr 2014Ive held this phone in a Samsung store 2 weeks ago and i felt no excitement whatsoever. I cant... moreThat Hyundai Sta Fe costs much less than the X5 or Range Rover... So I believe the wow factor would still be there for an owner of Hyundai.. It is an awesome car for its price..
However, in this case, the three devices cost almost the same.. S5 will sell the most because it is either like buying a Samsung S5 because they don't know any other product.. or carrier doesn't sell the other two or.. Because it sells the most by their beloved Samsung..
No doubt the camera is better, but apart from that there is no great leap in hardware of software that will make a real difference to user experience. But as always Samsung delivers good product. Where to from here is the question - another leap in video quality, ho hum, a few new sensors, hmmm. What about improving security, now that would be useful on an Android device that leaks like a sieve.
I held the SGS5 yesterday at the nearest samsung outlet in Mumbai, India. I must say the screen is great, the camera seemed to be alrightish ( I expected more) the clicked images seemed to be flat without no distinguishing factors between foreground and background. India gets the adreno octal-core version which was another blow to samsung fans in india(at least for me). The Fingerprint sensor is ordinary and suboptimal and the same goes with that gimmicky heart rate monitor. ABSOLUTE RUBBISH I MUST SAY. The worst of them all was the build quality. It felt like a light flimsy plastic toy. I own a Galaxy s2 ever since its been launched it did feel better than the SGS5 honestly. I am really disappointed with samsung. Whats the point if you have a great screen and waterproof body. if it feels like you can crush it with your palms. I don't know maybe its just me but its an honest opinion. Samsung you better get yourself rounded up. you'll lose customers like me who have the power to afford high end phones but doesn't see quality for money.
AnonD-39337, 08 Apr 2014yap. But after living with samsung phones for more than 10 years, i think i'll go with z2 to r... moreNote 3 is a killer device with 5.7 screen. That your friend is waiting for buy it from you.
I'm glad I kept well away from the S5 handset after playing with my friends S5 it feels jerky, too plastic and cheap. I previously had the Samsung S4 and I will never ever go back to Samsung again in a million years I've just purchased the HTC M8 it's the best handset I've ever had and that includes the iPhone 5. The S5 isn't much of an upgrade to the S4 and the touchwiz is really bad and takes up too much internal space.
i think i love s4 design more than s5, even note3 looks better and less price
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2014Why does all Lumia, Iphone, Xperia, and new HTC design all look the same?Lumia, Iphone, Xperia, and HTC designs are already good and doesn't need a compulsory upgrade. But Samsung really needs an upgrade of design. Otherwise, Samsung makes great devices.
I heard of users having volume issues with first batches. So keep waiting for the production to get better before buying.
