Anonymous, 20 Apr 2014For those who is comparing each and every smart phone with Samsung phones, Can u find a phone ... moreThe same question for u:
Can u tell me a smartphone which has beautiful metal design, perfect, intuitive, less laggy UI, dual camera and so on?
Removeble battery? wor what?why u need this? how much time per year u change the battery? LCD display show much realistic colours,if we r talkin' ab S5 and M8- the difference in durability 1-2 hours....so what?it's not a big deal!
The same thing with PPI,Htc has more PPI than S5, and pictures are much better from technical point of view! do u see the difference? I don't think so! Because if the display has min 300 PPI-u wouldn' see the difference! it;s not a creteria!
So if u like Sam -ok,go and get it...but u have to compare both phones and after that say what is really is....but not tell that Sam is a King! for you -probably, but not for all!
>., 21 Apr 2014screen of m8 is not power efficient.. sad =(Screen of M8 is a power efficient...Read the difference between SAmoled And Super LCD3....and u will see...
antisha82, 21 Apr 2014Only bad thing about M8 is that is way to beautiful and you are always afraid damaging it. I o... moreOnly problem is M7's small screen (less than 5 inches isn't enough for comfortable usage), which is partially fixed on the M8. M8 has also the better looks, but the camera is still a a joke to me - but I don't really NEED a perfect camera, so if Sony's Z2 fails - M8 is my next phone. 160 grams is ideal for me, since I had a Desire Z and loved that I could feel it in my pockets.
Murtza4u, 21 Apr 2014What a comparison when your phone accidently fell into the water. Plastic body will survive wh... moreThe M8 is heavy for you? Wow, you have such weak hands and arms. Maybe you should eat more protein.
>., 21 Apr 2014screen of m8 is not power efficient.. sad =(This comment is even more sad.
>., 21 Apr 2014screen of m8 is not power efficient.. sad =(r u sure? :-D
M8 have also barometer
Heart monitor in s5 is just a toy, never shows correct rates compared to professional monitors. 75 vs 88 is huge difference in heart beat
Poor implementation of finger scanner mechanism, sometimes work sometimes don't
Poor implementation of ip67 water resist, I bet that after 20 - 30 back cover removals , this little seal will start failing, so be careful with this removal battery feature
Sound quality thru the headphones - m8 kills s5
Built quality - I went to shop on Friday, compared these two. Just take a look on this silver plastic cheap looking frame around s5. No, this is a joke, this smartphone should be much cheaper.
M8 is in my pocket. Built quality, premium feel, fast ui, sound quality on the headphones.
If you're OK with the looks, design and grip of S5, then grab it because as the spec proofed, S5 is better than M8. Then you're a rational person, think logically, and pick what's best for you now and for the future.
However, if you're crowd-avoiding person, smartphone-for-everyday-task oriented, totally not OK with S5 design, maybe you're going to pick M8 or Z2.
Personally, I'm a M7 user and hell it is lot better than S4. But now, I guess I'm going to avoid either S5 or M8.

Believe it or not, things like that damage phones, and can interfere with the water-proofing. Not to mention that it is a fact that the Galaxy S5 is waterproof. Thousands, and soon to be millions of people have already put it in cups of water, swimming pools, and even washing machines, including myself...

That sounds like you being super defensive in denial rather than them.
You sound extremely hurt and jealous in your comments thus far.
anonymous, 20 Apr 2014You know it's actually harder to go from android to ios than other way round . You can compare... moreI have to disagree, and quite strongly so. I never had an iPhone but recently bought an iPad Air for my daughter, she had Android tablet before and also had HTC and Xperia Android phones. For both of us going to iOS was no problem, simple enough, it felt familiar after just 20 minutes or so.

Goes a long way to prove that most people see what they want to see, you can discredit the video all you like but still: 1. Water came inside.
AnonD-209094, 20 Apr 2014The waterproofing already proved to fail if the S5 is dropped into water, check out that video... moreUmmm, no. I watched that completely unscientific video, and two things. 1. He didn't show it "Failing" after he dropped it. 2. He did the water-test after he slammed the phone into a concrete brick...
anonymous, 20 Apr 2014Dude he said water resistant not waterproof . It's different :)
greetsIt's water proof.
Can anyone think logically. The water proof phones all the same water proof structure.
Some just have a higher rating. They all have depth and time restrictions though. The S5 can be submerged and used under water. Not just splashed and survived.
