You are entitled to your opinion but I have my S5 G900H (Octa-Core) for a year and 3 weeks and it still performs perfectly. Battery life is good, speed is good and guess what, my CPU is actually underclocked based on the Power Saving feature with limit CPU option enabled. On average all the cores run at 500Mhz mainly instead of the 1.9Ghz and 1.3Ghz that all the cores run at originally. Even at 500Mhz my S5 is zipping through intense 3D games with no lagging whatsoever. You stick to your limited iPhone and I will stick to my feature rich S5. Oh and one of my TVs no longer have the remote that came with please lend me your iPhone to turn on it.
I love using different phones and checking out which is the best on the market. I have used android for long time until I bought my first iPhone last year. I just hate how laggy Samsung was, although I think samsung has improved a lot with its new Note line. My galaxy S5 was slower and laggier than my first iPhone which was a 5c. Samsung phones seem good on the paper and perform really good for the first 5-6 months, but they don't last long and they are just crappy phones if you are looking for something which can perform well enough for a year or even longer. I have also used HTC and Moto. They are bang for the buck but don't maintain a good performance after they are 6 months old or get a new Android update. The biggest example would be iPhone 4s and Samsung Galaxy s2, which were both released in 2011. Today, there is no comparison. In my experience of using Galaxy S4, a 2013 flagship and my friend owning a iPhone 4s, the Galaxy S4 tore 4s when it came to specs. But now there are people using 4s and being more productive than using a Galaxy S4 of 2013 which is laggy, crappy and just doesn't work fast.
Now, people who are bashing Apple have not used iPhones for enough time to judge. I was the same. Before I switched to iOS, I thought they were overpriced junk. You will not like iOS for the first few days or weeks if you have enjoyed the freedom on Android. But once you get used it, you will really appreciate the quality of products Apple makes. It is very stupid of people having just an hands-on a phone and saying it is bad. My experience with Galaxy S5 was bad. Maybe, there are some people who love it. It is just what I think. I am currently using iPhone 6s. Yes I spent a lot of money on it, but I don't have to buy a phone every year to have a fast and snappy performance and get the latest updates. It is a future proof phone and will perform as good for a couple of more years.
The S5 is a great phone once you understand how to tweak it and push its cpu to its full powerÂ….the stock version will be slowerÂ…you have to clean it up and get rid of all that bloatwareÂ…..tweak your camera, shut down all the useless syncsÂ….clean the cached dataÂ…Â…there are plenty of videos on YTube that will show you how to do all thisÂ….once you have, its actually a pretty fast phoneÂ…..you can also change your launcher if your not a "Touchwiz fan"
I love this phone no that I've spent some time tweaking it.
Why is it that recent changes to the gallery set-up have to make things less overseeable ?? Change it back so one can have everything in the order it was recorded !

I have a factory unlocked octa-core S5 (G900H) and it's prefect. I have it for a year now and it has never crashed nor hung nor froze. I have never had to do a battery pull. It came with KitKat 4.4.2 and I upgraded it to Lollipop 5.0. Battery life is better with Lollipop especially if you have Power Saving enabled along with Background Data Restricted enabled. Go for it.
