Anonymous, 04 Jan 2015While all these new features are just wonderful...has anyone ever actually used the phone part... moreSuggestions :
1) Remove your cover (flip cover or case cover as well), sometimes it's only this masking your voice.
2) Try another phone carrier.
3) Change your unit because it could be defective.
Conversations are perfectly clear for me like for my contacts when they hear me. And i can say the same for a bunch of people i know with S5 around me.
Then if you did all those 3 and get the same results, you may be right for your region.
While all these new features are just wonderful...has anyone ever actually used the phone part of this device? It is first and foremost supposed to be a phone and the microphone is absolutely horrible. No one can hear me on the other end...sounds garbled and broken up.Have read numerous comments from European sites complaining about this but nothing really is the US so I know this is not an isolated issue.Love the device otherwise but it seems Samsung has forgotten the most obvious and basic funtion of this device. Any suggestions?
pinay, 04 Jan 2015Which is more better? Samsung s5 or the iPhone 5s? I'm planning to get a phone this monthS5
seriously @pinay?? how can you even ask that...samsung S5 is clearly better than an iphone 5 even 6 and 6plus.

Which is more better? Samsung s5 or the iPhone 5s? I'm planning to get a phone this month

I usually get around 5 hours of screen on time on the s5. For normal usage the battery will last probably around 18 to 24 hrs. It is on par and sometime better than the note 3 with larger battery.

It's up to these designers to get doing what they are paid for all these phones nowadays are just a screen. Thats all it will be till someone reinvents a new design smartphone.
I bought the samsung galaxy s5 20 days ago. I have got problems with the battery life. It is exhausted very fast (it lasts less than 24 hours with minimum use of the internet) , but my big problem it comes from the fact that the phone is heated up. It warms up even if you don't use its at all, just is open.
Does anyone can help? Is there any explanation? or is about a faulty device I got?
I always look forward to the new Galaxy S series but the last 2 have been miserable and slowish and poor battery. I am one of the folk who Touchwhizz does actually bring me features i use.
As always, "Come on Sammy blow us away this time"..
I am soon to buy a new phone and was looking at this one versus the Sony Experia Z3. It's a very close match between the two but I think I will go for the Samsungthe see e t just seems to have the edge over the Sony, plus the Samsung has a larger community of developers who love to customise the Galaxy series off phones. In other words, the Samsung Galaxy family has a ton of third party support, more so than most other manufacturers of Android phones.
Also, I have a few friends who already own this phone and have said that it is miles better than its predecessors, including the S3 which I currently own. Two of those friends also upgraded from the S3 and both said hiow much better the S5 is over the S3.

Infact I cant say firmly about this android hype after 5 years. ?
As you said Nokia N series rocked once, now Samsung android on the ramp & dunno who is going to be next ? Anything may happen ? maybe Blackberry or microsoft or any new OS !!
As of I am happy with the Samsung device as a One time purchase per 5 years.
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2015imagine the one whose purchased this one during intro price 55K !!!!!!!
Some phones i do buy brand new but it is are all my hands are second hand.The big thing is if i buy new then sell in a month i lose 100's but just waiting a bit longer to try the phones stops that..
It depends how much you want the phone i used to buy every Nokia N-series brand new but stopped when all these touch screen smartphones arrived.
Also a lot of folk buy these on a 2 year contract but i HATE contracts especially cancelling the buggers when 2 years is up..
If it is something i really want now i do buy like Sony Z3c and BB Classic but the S6 will have to impress me to buy it NEW.
AnonD-316697, 03 Jan 2015that's because they have money, they do not wait like u for the price to go down.Dont they feel sad when they see the same device selling at the price 60% lesser than their purchase ?
I think these kind of electronics must an one time purchase per 5 years (approx) for hard earned people like me :)
Look at S3 and S4 price tag now, almost 65% slashed from their intro price. Strange.
I personally feel the real value of Electronics are Nil.
Anyhow i am happy with Device ! Looing forward to have for some more 3-4 years :)
