It´s definitely an upgrade over the S4 in every possible aspect unless some gimmicky features on the S4 like the slow thermometer or eye scroll are your thing. But yes, I don't see a reason to buy this instead of the S5. And wonder how can anyone choose this over the S6 if the price is almost the same. Beyond my understanding.
[deleted post]my exact feeling about this device, and the editor dares to say this can be an upgrade to those using the s4 and the s5 how can this PoS be an upgrade to the two proper flagships mate. just not posible there is no real benefit that warrants such a decision.
good phone but bad pricing.. hopefully the j5 (2016) will be priced correctly

The Exynos-variant is about 33% faster as it gets 40-45 000 in Antutu. That's better than S5 or Honor 6!

AnonD-404798, 02 Feb 2016good point there....but only if you are willing to risk buying phone like ''Xiaomi'' Why is it a "risk"
AnonD-457216, 02 Feb 2016nexus 5x better at the same priceThat's fact
Sammy A5, a midrange phone at that price? Lol
Anyway most of the features ain't useful in Africa, so no need streets myself, still have my Letv doing a great job and valiantly of 4k recording on a midrange fone of $200 is awesome and a 3gb of ram, plus 32gb rom, to he'll with Samsung
bring in the modular phones. so that yearly, you could upgrade specific modules like the processor, and not the whole phone.
Quite expensive eh..
but it should be fine if it have up to date SoC.

Well, honestly, they have been too ambitious in putting up that phone. I had too replace mine 3 times but it seems all m5 has that defect of shutting down every 5 mins and resetting unless its plugged on a power outlet. A5 2016 makes more sense.
Perfect phone for me. Beautiful and this is the cheapest phone that support sammy pay, i am really interested to try that service. I hope sammy will introduce it soon in my country..
And i totally agree, its too pricey.
Samsung is dreaming....and dreaming ...
again and again....
sell this middle range at $480 USD...(total joke of the year)
AnonD-111717, 02 Feb 2016and you don't count the risk of buying a 400 euro phone with mid-low range chipset?
