Install xdabbeb's camera mod OR Jishnu's Camera mod, and BAMMM glorious 4K videos with OIS.
I'm still not dropping 900 dollars on SGS5. Is rather do that for the Note 4 or the oppo find 7.
GPC, 24 Apr 2014I wish reviews like this faced the fact that the LG actually has a much smaller screen - at le... moreOn-screen keys no longer matter with kitkat immersive mode which hides the keys in apps and games.
Boris Johnson, 25 Apr 2014What are you on? I wasn't talking about any of the things that you said. That's because that reply was not to you. Check again. It was in reply to islnad boy or whatever. And that's who the reply is to. I even double checked.

In terms of not being the copy cat of the two. Especially UI that's was G line is.
Display. Even sunlight despite G2 getting a lot brighter
Camera. G2 had OIS, but S4 did overall slightly better. In video and audio S4 definite win.
In software functions. Software updates. S3 has a better update track than most other 2013 flagships.
Ergonomics, sd slot, and removable battery.
What the G2 did have mainly was a S800 vs S600. So of course it was faster. Battery life...Mostly in call time and it's quite thicker with a 600mah bigger battery non removable.
Boris Johnson, 24 Apr 2014The LG G2 has a poor camera and that's very well documented on the Web on youtube and pretty m... moreIt is definitely not a poor camera. While I will say it definitely needed a little work since it had OIS, but the S4 still did overall better. But it was barely behind and takes great pictures.
No need to act like everyone else here. But shhh...apparently I only defend Samsung.
islandboy-JP, 24 Apr 2014Smh. I don't care what MINIMAL changes the S5 has over the G2, I will never regret my purchase... moreYou saying they are all minimal just because you bought the G2 is bias and unrealistic.
And That's pretty funny you go from Samsung Galaxy to LG G2, which slightly borrows and changes galaxy design. As well as practically copying and pasting Samsung Touchwiz and calling it Optimus UI. There is not much difference. Some. And it's really hard to believe anyone online that calls Touchwiz especially on S3 or S4 laggy. Just sounds like internet trolling to the people who have actually used it and know the truth.
Sarvam, 24 Apr 2014iam using LG G2, i went to samsung store today to check the S5 camera Quality, photos are real... moreTry again. And if you test in the store you have to test you phone in their in the same conditions.
islandboy-JP, 24 Apr 2014Umm.. really?? I owned both, am an avid photographer and I can tell you that you are very wron... moreYou've owned a s5 and a g2?
There are tons of comparisons out there, open your eyes and face the facts
Winner: LG G2.
ABOUT CLOSE ENOUGH TO BE THE SAME ...
But when dead thee LG is off to be plugged in chained to the wall corded not mobile... where with the galaxy note pocket four more batteries or more and go unplugged mobile anywhere at all times for as long as you want to. Just change the battery too easy and time till dead is not an issue ... unless you got the LG and got stock to a wall socket till charged... No way in hell I would want that just took it back I would rather just keep going and going not go plug in for hours... ya real mobile that is...very heavy user.

I don't know anythin, 24 Apr 2014Well apart from the LG G2 being a last year phone the S5 barely has any improvements over it. ... moreWell you have a very accurate and honest name as the s5 offers vast improvements

Anonymous, 24 Apr 2014Very strange to compare S5 with LG2, its means LG2 is way better. Lol definitely not
Smh. I don't care what MINIMAL changes the S5 has over the G2, I will never regret my purchase of a G2 (which I just bought 2 weeks ago from amazon). I have owned all 4 Galaxy flagship phones and grew tired of the design, Touchwiz, crappy bloatware etc. I was a bit worried at first about how I would react to a change but I will never regret it. The G3 is just about purchased already for me. Just let me know the release date.
Oh and with a little root and custom ROM, I too have 4k recording now as well.
