It makes me want to use my phone less. Don't buy the Galaxy S5. Even from Best Buy with the deal they have. Its not even worth getting it free. I'm sick of it already and I've had it for 10 minutes. The camera is terrible and the settings are was worse than the Galaxy S3. That's the one I prefer. Get that one. Or just don't get a Galaxy at all. Save your money for a phone that's actually worth it.
I kept having a problem with the power button sticking on my iPhone and decided to try droid. It was great for about 4 months. Now it spends so much of the day frozen it is almost inoperable. It will freeze during calls causing it to drop the call and the keyboard usually won't let me type, that is if it even shows up. I have to end up taking the battery out ad even the power button won't work. That will get me by for half an hour or so. Long story short, I will be switching back to my iphone!
the fingerprint sensor is not working I removed & replaced the simm card and the battery and it still does not work. Any suggestions anyone.
PhoneGeekSG, 01 Nov 2014•Better than average battery life •Display is very good, sharp and detailed colours. •Screen... moreThis is like every thought I have on the s5. You sir, said it all that is in my mind. One more, hand must be like super steady when taking pictures, or else the pictures get blurred easily.
Samsung makes really good phones in terms of hardware specifications but their Android UI is one of the ugliest in the market. They definitely need to revamp TouchWizUI if they want to maintain their customers. LG and HTC will take over the Android market if they keep using this generic flavorless UI, even Sony Xperia has better UI than their flagship phones.
•Better than average battery life
•Display is very good, sharp and detailed colours.
•Screen brightness is one of the best I've seen.
•Loudspeakers are generally louder than average.
•Audio quality is excellent, just not in the same league as the HTC One M8.
•Build quality is average. Nice to see the design and feel on the back, but plastic still surrounds the phone. Taking out and put in covers risk peelin off the chome bezel.
•Flap is a nuisance. Have to take out every time when I need to charge the phone. Several friends of mine had their flaps came off already. However on the bright side, water resistance is present.
•Fingerprint scanner is pleasant, although I prefer the one on iPhone.
•Inclusion of heart rate sensor is am added feature, though nother many will use it. Accurate readings given.
•Front Facing camera is okay. Hardly visable in low light. Very bright environment produces high noise in the photos. Works best in normal lighting conditions. Loses in this department compared to other phones such as iPhone 6 and 6 plus.
•Rear Camera is superb. Takes excellent daylight photos. However, falls short in the low light department. Uneven lighting conditions causes photos to be blurry. Good lighting environment will make photos look extremely detailed and saturated. Better than iPhone 6 and 6 plus in terms of picture quality.
This is the worst phone you could ever consider buying.I have had samsung before and it was better than it is now. As every one else has mentioned it is bloated with useless software that makes it harder to do the usual things you want to do on a smart phone. Like sending pictures you have turn data on even if your hooked up to wifi, or if you want to send multiple pics good luck nothing is easy on this phone. The camera is super slow and just ok at best. If this is googles answer to IPhone it's not even close. Save your money.
I have this phone for one week now. I can tell you everything is perfect on this phone. Camera, display, speed, functionality, sound quality. It's like this phone understands me perfectly. A couple of examples: One handed mode, multi window, S planner the ability to see the month and appointments underneath at the same time, listen to music and forward it in the lock screen or notification area. Also you don't even need the menu button to go to the home screen. Just press multitask button and press left or right corner and you're on the home screen. Love it! The camera makes FANTASTIC pictures! No need to customize, just auto mode and shoot the picture and beautiful results. Browsing internet is really fast and watching youtube videos is wonderful on this display. I also like the removable back, not only is the battery removable, The speaker is surprisingly loud, even with the waterproof protection. Also I can change the back color. I have a white version and bought the blue back. Looks so good. I will change the white and blue every month now. Also waterproof so I feel comfortable using it in the bathroom or on the table with drinks beside it. I love this phone so much. Thank you Samsung!
AnonD-269963, 31 Oct 2014Yup ... The iPhone 6 is faster than thens5 but the s5 camera is better than the iPhone 6and th... morebro someone has milead you badly. i phone 6 is a way faster than s5 in most of the aspects and that is because of bloatware(unwanted apps that can not be uninstalled) on s5. Samsung has preloaded some practically non usable features making their device perform slower than most of the top end devices and even mid ranged ones. Have a look on your own if you have doubts. click below-
I need best phone, 30 Oct 2014Have u tried both Yup ... The iPhone 6 is faster than thens5 but the s5 camera is better than the iPhone 6and the battery too. Also it is water proof and u will save a lot of money .... Wait o forgot to mention that the internet on the s5 is better añd downloading apps is so fast
I hate the chrome sides of s5. Looks cheap compare to Sony z2 and HTC one. As soon as the chrome gets dent due to bump the damage will continue to increase.
I have been using this phone for 5 months.Its oke with the s/w.But i think its not worht for this much price.
Design wise ,its very bad finsihing.We cant with compare With HTC m8 and E8 with design and camera.
Now i am planing to move on to iphone 6 plus or note 4
