Anonymous, 19 Apr 2014And who else is using real leather?
Metal is no less a cheap recyclable material than plastic... moreNo one is using real leather except Vertu. But like I said, it is Samsung's Flagship device. They already cut corners using plastic, they can't throw in some real leather for the consumer?
$700.00 is a lot of money for plastic.
How do you figure the S5 is "much thinner"? You are talking about ONE millimeter, that is also measured at the thickest part of the M8.
Why did Samsung used to make metal mobiles, but not anymore? The i8910 was made out of metal years ago & it was a good looking device. The S5 is no beauty.
The S5 won't scratch like metal? I didn't realize plastic was scratch proof. The heat argument for metal is the biggest cop out as is waterproof. If your not smart enough to not submerge your mobile in water, you've got some issues.
What are the pricey internals you speak of? They both use the practically the same chipset & the same GPU.
The display is nothing special. AMOLED displays are very susceptible to burn-in, so that is hardly a positive.
And removable battery? Who cares. How often are ppl near power supplies? They are everywhere.
The Touch ID on the S5 is buggy & barely works. You don't even need to put in a pass code after multiple failed attempts.
BTW...I would never be jealous of a plastic $700.00 mobile. Plastic is junk.
Even the new ONE+ONE uses metal on their very first device...LOL. Poor Samsung.

Don cry! everything is ok! Have a nice day Sammy Boy! i don care what u say! U don even have this phone, what can u say....and im not sure that u have used this phone! So ...u have nothing to say! u say ab things that says all fan boys...Thats what it is!
Once again, i wish u a nice day...and not laggy UI, like your words...:)
what is impossible haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
And don forget to check you heart rate, and wash your hands before using Fprint, if once u will have this phone.
Keep in touch...Im sure that now u will write alot of bad words in my adress...so im waiting your comments so much....cause your words make me laughing!

Second...Are you seriously that naive?????
What you are saying has nothing to do with what I said.
You need to learn how to read something before replying to it. And on top of that if you are going to mention something like that then that is what you should have replied to.
Someone else replied and said that is poor logic....Because it is first off. More expensive in no way shape or form always means better. ESPECIALLY in the name of apple. Apple is the BEST example of more expensive generally being heavily over priced.
And if that was not enough I replied to their comment "not the original which is yours I guess" and said as poor as that logic is...Because that is poor logic...That the Iphone finger print scanner overall works better.
And how is it someone is a fanboy because they defend facts and logic to people who do one or all of; lie, misquote them, bash, contradict, act like fanboys, and so forth?
AnonD-236781, 24 Apr 2014I wrote u back ,cause u say or just want to show that s5 is King of Smartphones! for u-probabl... moreNo. That's what you choose to see because you are frustrated with my responses... Especially after you contradict me more than once.
I'm only replying to defend logic and facts.
Technically speaking S5 is overall best thus far. Does not mean in every single way or by miles. Nor was that my whole point nor am I telling everyone they have to get it.
Although I am saying without a doubt that the display IS the BEST. And that was something you kept arguing. It's proven fact already.
So when you say something not true and someone shows you with detail the truth and you reply back everytime to contradict them...Guess what....You probably get frustrated by it.

take it easy dude , go and smoke a cigarette and relax!everything is gonna be alright! i'm tired of your comments-cause they are the same! nothing new! Probably u have nothing to say! so.....say nothing! lol

In this way when u say that S5 is King- write that it's "your own opinion", and be much better to write why is so what u say!
"Contradict"-yes, cause here people want to see what is a user expirience,but not only technical issues!
First of all go and buy S5, use it,and after that write!
is it Clear? And yehhhh, u r speaking ab display,cause u have nothing more to say! For u display of S5 is the final criteria that make a S5 the best phone in the world!
Relax dude! take it easy!
Neither steel nor is the leather. Moto Walnut Is primary and Nokia 1020 is the secondary for this year at least.
Sorry Guys I don't want to offend any of you but Samsung is almost the same and htc has destroyed their Most Beautiful creation with that nonsense third camera on the top. the same money should have been spent on an 8 ultra megapixel camera and put 32 gb flash memory. You guy please try to visualize my imagination how beautiful the phone would have been.
AnonD-246216, 21 Apr 2014The M8 is heavy for you? Wow, you have such weak hands and arms. Maybe you should eat more protein.loool

We both know that s5 is the best so far..though we don't have to admit that.

Just because Apple is paying more for fingerprint scanner than Samsung means that scanner works better on iphone than on S5. Brilliant logic... NOT.

i don' care ab water resistance, if u buy a phone which costs a lot of money-u have to take care ab it! that's it! it's not an argument to say i have smth like this and it's the best! ok! never mind! we r talking ab dif things!
anyway all of us will keep own opinion!

Yes many people will be goofy like look I can take it in the tub or shower, something. But even that still means a lot that you can do that.
But it also means that if you get wet accidentally for any reason like splashed, stuck in weather, drop the device in water, or someone else does something not realizing they hit your phone...You don't have to worry. It survives.
And what we think does not matter. It's fact. When you put the S5 in Movie Mode in screen options it becomes the most accurate. It matches LCD's colors plus still offers true blacks and contrast. Or you can leave it in it's saturated mode if that's what you prefer.

It's feature-but no so relevant for people nowadays...Heart rate? It doesn't shoe corect information in compare with other devices from medical point of view...Fprint- is not so perfect working there(in Iphone 5S-working much better). For Fprint module Sam payed 4$ per one phone-Iphone-18$...That means that in Iphone Fprint is working better. Design-nothing new...as usuall...it's just my point of view....
AnonD-236781, 23 Apr 2014yes,a display is more brightness,i'm agree, but LCD displays gives you much true colours...my ... moreYou don't read and or listen very well do you?
The S5's Amoled was tested by displaymate and they said it was the best display they ever tested on a phone.
That includes brightness AND color accuracy.
And even before that screens like the S4 and Note 3 though their colors were still a little saturated that was all they were. A little saturated.
This is all talking about when you switch the color mode to Movie Mode. Even those two had very natural colors, just a little less. But they also have true blacks and wide contrast. Which equates to an overall more natural image.
Because LCD's were only a little more natural, but still not perfect. Still saturated. As well as fake blacks and washy contrast.
I never said LCD was bad. Never said Sony or HTC were bad. That is true. They all have strong points and they are ll have their fans. Everyone has their preference.
However that will never stop my from stating facts. Especially in reply to non factual things depending on the situation.

And just because you say YOU don't THINK you need it does not mean that it should be excluded for no reason. Even Samsung's metal phones had removable battery and SD SLot. And their Amoled water proof phone that is much thinner has removable battery and Sd slot.
There is simply no excuses.
And actually you do notice a difference. Since the S5 has been tested to have the best display in terms of color accuracy and brightness on top of being amoled and having wider contrast and true blacks....You notice that. As well as even lighting without all those LCD bright spots.
