I clearly remember you from the Nokia E51 days. That was 7 years ago.
So which phones do you own now?

Awaiting S6 but this too i reckon will have pentile display..I would rather have S6 with 1080p super amoled plus display rather than QHD pentile.
P.S. I remember your name from past. :)
The S5 is an outstanding smartphone from the smooth operation to the camera (camera is really outstanding) but I have one little gripe, the display. Yes it looks sharp and vibrant but the trouble is I have a S2 as well. The colours on the S2 looks more vivid, more colorful...I guess due to it having a Super AMOLED Plus screen (only member of the Galaxy S family to have it). Even with the S2's resolution being less than HD, I still feel it over the S5 Full HD screen. I have put both phones side by side and gone through the various display modes and in each mode viewing the same image/same video clip and the S2 looks more vivid to me. I know the S5 screen is a better overall screen but you can see the difference between the S2 RGB compared to the S5 pentile matrix.
Does anybody else share the same view as me? Is anybody else feeling the S2 screen over the S5?
Smart pause was not working on my Samsung galaxy s5? What I have to do can any one help me?

The only way round this is what i do and don't believe hype or manufacturers to show a legally binding video of WHAT water resistance FULLY means.
If you are saying you are absolutely sure the back was fully closed like the little animation shows then Samsung should foot the bill.
I remember the JCB phone that was able to withstand being run over by a car but a member of BBC Click team broke it on the programme.
i am using this phone for few days.before s5 i owned z2 and z3.display on s5 is great colours are vibrant.people here often complaint about battery life but battery life of s5 is very good.if u know how to use it.the most beautiful thing about this set is its wight.it feels really good to use such a light wight set.front camera of s5 is better than z2 and z3.rear camera is also good.over all really worth every penny just go for it.and people who own korean crap please dont comment and misguide people

My S5 is ALIVE!
AnonD-8044, 06 Jan 2015You said it though "Water Resistant" not "Waterproof"..Yes, I am aware that it is 1 meter deep but in my defense, believe it or not, I only jumped standing on a 3 feet pool along with kids. The phone got soaked for less than 5 seconds. Yes I bought the phone in the Philippines first week launched in Globe telecoms.Anyhow, I wont debate with whatever people will say here. I know what happened and I am pretty sure the phone was supposed to resist that little plunge. And believe me when I say I take care of my belongings. I even have my Nintendo since I was 10 with me, yes still working. The phone was used that way in various occasions as stated in my story. It was only until the camera was replaced that this happened.
Good luck with you guys. I hope you don't get the same problem like me or better yet. Ignore the water resistant claim.

Many persons think that the S5 no longer has a capacitive menu button (I also thought so too when I first saw a live demo display model in a store) but it's still there under the quiet. Simply hold down the multitask capacitive button until the menu pops up. Holding it down between 1.5 - 2 seconds shows the menu options. I realised this on the very first day that I used my brand new S5.
I love the galaxy s5. The possibilities seem endless. However, having been an I phone user since apple created the I phone, I've relied on the cloud and apple for backing up EVERYDAY including texts. This is a feature that IS NOT available with the galaxy s5. My disappointment also stems from having had this phone for months before the charger port became faulty. My provider being T-MOBILE does NOT repair, they replace. I'm pissed off

These companys think we want slim phones but in reality an extra few millimetres and extra 1000mA of battery power is what persons want.
