I find the Galaxy S5 to be a worthy replacement for my S3. The response is buttery smooth and so far no lag (wait until the updates tho'). It seems as though Samsung learned a thing or two in regards to batteries; as a heavy multimedia user and multitasker when on the go, I'm totally impressed by the battery's endurance. I have gone a whole day (24 Hours) without having to recharge.
anonymous, 25 Aug 2014goodYes its really good. After spending sometime with a blackberry Q10 I realised the beauty of the Samsung s5. It gives you the feeling of a true friend standing by your side
Built in microphone is horrible, I had to return my first one and the second one is just as bad. People I call say I sound all muffled unless I use my headset with its mic.
T hot, 25 Aug 2014Its not about specs Its about performance And apple is very good in it Actually is the bes... moreTherfore Nokia 3310 is the best phone if you are talking about performance, not Sony!
serhio, 25 Aug 2014The samsung galaxy S5 time lag is awful.
You press the button and sometimes you should wait... moreBecause there are apps working in the background that you didn't exit properly and apps syncing automatically.
Lags depends on the user not the phone.
Try to use your phone properly before complaining!
my friend's Galaxy S5 heats a lot.and it also lags many times.what to do ? any suggestions..
The samsung galaxy S5 time lag is awful.
You press the button and sometimes you should wait till some seconds that the phone reacts.
This is specially peinful when you should make a quick photo, to capture a moment, by eg.
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2014To be frank, The latest iphone can be compared with Galaxy S or S2,
Way too behind !!!! ROFLLLIts not about specs
Its about performance
And apple is very good in it
Actually is the best all rounder phone
Samsung flaw is build quality and design
Htc flaw is camera
Sony has no visible flaw rather than pricing technique
crazyboys_tp, 24 Aug 2014After 3 long years and going through almost all the flagship smartphones from S2 to Note to S3... moreAlso like to let U know....octa Core is 10 to 15% faster then snapdragon version
crazyboys_tp, 24 Aug 2014After 3 long years and going through almost all the flagship smartphones from S2 to Note to S3... moreEven Samsung s5 have snapdragon model available in India...with same specification n far batter camera then E8....4G enabled too
It's a type of phobia, guys want to change each next model, not knowing you loose 50% on resale, then put n another 50% on new phone, ending up double the price, you originally paid. This keeps on, and most of us have become addictive!
with the release Galaxy alpha the price of S5 going to come down further down,
I wont wonder if the price difference btw S4 and S5 varies just by 10$ !! S4 leather edition seems to so so premium OMG !!!
Galaxy Alpha just a corrected version of S5 in terms of ergonomics
itumi, 24 Aug 2014It's the apple with a bite they pay for, nothing more.To be frank, The latest iphone can be compared with Galaxy S or S2,
Way too behind !!!! ROFLLL
After 3 long years and going through almost all the flagship smartphones from S2 to Note to S3 to Note2 to S4 to S5(Used all these phones personally) I am happy to say that I am moving out from Samsungs loyal customer list.
I was used to lot of Samsungs user interface but Touchwiz started to getting bored.
I wanted to try a HTC device but was not at all happy with M8's camera so I went up with E8 and I am surprised to say that I am very impressed with Sense UI. And more over Snapdragon rocks.
I really miss the excellent no the Best camera and the deep black's of my old S5 but replacing it with Boom Sound, HTC Sense UI, Latest Snapdragon Chipset with 4G and dual sim option of One E8 is really worth.
If anyone wana get a mobile for around 34k in India HTC One E8 is the best option other than S5
Guys I will really miss all the critics, comments and lot of fanboy and haters replies in the Samsung page. But I think I will still follow it for some more time.
To all Samsung Lovers and Haters do not post any opinions or comments unless you use a device for at least couple of days. feeling a mobile in a showroom will not give you its real feel.
One Final Word even though I am out of Sammy's customer list I really appreciate few of the good work by Sammy .
I have posted my opinion and experience which i had with Samsung so please don't say any unwanted things about my choice.
Tack Care Guys

Anonymous, 24 Aug 2014buy iphone ...galaxy s5 lags Alright :) but any specific apps that lag? or does it happen of most of the stuff?
T hot, 21 Aug 2014Yeah!!!.. nobody is interested in this plastic crap..
What is so superior in it??
Build qua... moreHtc.....lookes like a stainless steel pedal bin. Some one with a financial reason injected into our phone vocabulary the words "PREMIUM FEEL", what on earth..Oh the metal boys, look , no one stays occupied for more than seconds looking/feeling the exterior of their phone..NO-ONE. It's the screen babey.You know the experts say s5 best screen they ever handled.
Nokia... is there any thing uglier..is there. They look like they have a big ugly gaudy coloured badly fitting case on stuck out at the corners, and that before it leaves the box, nothing yo see hear, maybe a couple have a decent camera.. that's it. Android versus wp..I won't even keep you up in conversation, the few sales could even come from nervous people who try wp because they think they'll understand this smartphone because "my computers for Windows on it" probably their first sphone.As for the twizz, it's the most fun feature packed system there is its the industry's first, the more you live with it the more you find and there's nothing you can't do, it's just great it's a complete experience, and as for lag, you've spent more time on this thread today than you lose in a whole year with any lag, oooooh all those fraction of a second, we need to grow up people. The s5 just read gsma review camera fantastic music fantastic screen fantasic, it's so good its brought rival fans from every quarter here on to this thread filed with jealousy to say things to try and stop it selling. So you know why we Samsung fans are here on this"SAMSUNG"thread? , because we've tried the rest and they are also rans, we don't know they are alive, iPhone what experts who, they can't even keep your interest,your a fan and even your here , like a month to the flame of the mighty S5 hoooraaaah weeelcoooome, well..or go back to your phones webpage and weep.
