Hi guys..i am from Tawau, Sabah, Malaysia..my second opinion for Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Sony Xperia Z3 i am using now..i know many would agree or even disagree with my writing, but i own both. So, i am giving my opinion based on facts and hands on experiences of camera, screen, build quality and usage basis..
- S5 grippy hold with faux metal battery cover is good, plastic body kinda cheap..Z3 body is so beautiful and metal body is really nice..front and back is slippery and really a finger print magnet.
- S5 battery standby time is so much better than Z3..this time of writing, my Z3 is plug in to the wall, and my S5 is still has some power to do this comments.
- S5 heats up to minimum at the back beside the power button, but my Z3 heats up even more on the upper side of the back. I really feel the heat with Z3.
- S5 camera is excellent compare to Z3..Based on my eyes and my wife honest opinion(she uses IP5S), S5 excel in the camera department. Z3 camera is also not bad.
-Z3 double firing front speaker is awesome..S5 back speaker is at shame..the sound produce on both phone is clear and loud enough.
- network reception is same with both phone. I get good reception of signal. I use two number with the same network, so this fight is a draw..
-screen on both phone is gorgeous with fullHD build..
I am being very neutral here. I love both phone and i will never suggest which is better or which to buy..both will be my daily driver for a long time..that is all from me

max, 19 Jul 2015Exynos octacore or qualcomm snapdragon quad-core ? Whats the difference between this both ... moreExynos is better. Qualcomm doesn't work so well with Samsung. Exynos is made by Samsung themselves whilst Qualcomm Snapdragon is made by US company. Most benchmark proves that Exynos are more powerful than Qualcomm.

Hi guys..just needed to give my opinion between the Sony Xperia Z3 and Samsung Galaxy S5 which some of the commentors here are comparing about..telling wveryone the truth, i am using both phones now..and I LOVE BOTH S5 and Z3..i never complain because i really like both of this phones..i can do anything with both phone..by the way, everyone have their own opinion and thought, so i cannot judge that S5 is better than Z3, or vice versa..thank you to all..bye..
I have a problem... I really need a fix... i bought an S5 barely 3 weeks ago .... battery was ok for a while ... just this week it started draining like crazy... My phone which could last for a whole day on a single charge now lasts barely 11 hours.
Investigated and found the culprit to be gpsd it drains 30-45% of my battery... i have gone from fourm to fourm tryna find a SIMPLE fix cos i dun no much about developing and programing stuff.... PLLLLLLEAASEEE HOW DO I GET RID OF THE 'gpsd'

You can also but z ultra if youwant to give up on camera flash for a biggsr ips screen 6.4 inches but its camera not that good grainy for z1 but screen and performance is good and will cozt you approx 18k to 18.5k in local marker so decide your budget and pick up your phone
aryan, 16 Jul 2015Thanks bro..and onemore think Ill decide to buy s5 but still im confused with lots of the vers... moreWell needless to say that flipkart sells original product check for WS RETAIL because its the official flipkart shop the Indian model number is SMG900H. For 23k you will get a better phone check local prices also my friend's friend recently purchased at a price of 24k from the local market. You will get a much better phone well if you are a software enthusiast then go for sony because they give their phones much longer updates than samsung and o am sorry to say that android M may be the last update for s5 as samsung onlu give updates for 2 years but sony provodes more. I am sure you wil love it TouchWiz is more redefined thatprevioua looks good and smooth few lags can be noficed but its ok. Finger print sesor is awsome feature at that price but you get only about 400 mb free ram anyways you open 5 to 6 apps and internet on it still shows 300 mb free ram you can check out ebay or latestone.Com for cheap and good quality covers that can make your phone look premium i got 1 from latestone for 199 it makes my phone look rectangular and more sexy
