S5 is a great phone I got mine a month ago and battery lasts a lot longer than my previous Galaxy S3. The 4G is lightning fast, and I love touch wiz..2gb is more than enough ram. I enjoy all the gimmicks like heart rate and I use the pedometer often. Camera on this phone is superior to most point and shoot cameras I have used. I like the golf ball back cover, especially the blue color, nearly non-slip. I wish the speaker phone was of better quality.
What really sucks is the little usb cover on a cheap platic tether on the bottom broke after merely one week, thats all it lasted before separating completely. On that big auction site the part is inexpensive and very easy to replace but why should I put another piece of crap on the phone that proved faulty in the first place and one that will only endure one week? Very poor quality control on that charging port usb cover, should have never been used. I will wait and skip another generation before getting S7 and see if those cheap parts are on before buying one of the galaxy series again. Overall very happy with this phone, it has sooooo many positive areas that make for a great user experience. Kitkat 4.4.2 is a huge upgrade... thank you g@@gle. Dont get me wrong I was happy with the S3, it was only replaced because my work place paid for the upgrade. Here is to the next 2 years CHEERS!
AnonD-272000, 19 Jun 2014But when will it available in local market in India? Plz tell i want to buy a phone within a month.Regarding it's release in Indian sub continent. You have to wait and see the market launch. Hopefully this time S5 LTEA gets more market including India too :)
AnonD-89109, 19 Jun 2014Lol, just because they added 1 GB more RAM it makes it great. It would have been great if they... moreYes with that just 1GB additional ram Samsung S5 lost its part to Sony Z2 and LG G2 in many countries including Singapore, Malaysia, US, Australia etc.
Now S5 is back.
With the Adreno 420 processor now S5 LTEA version becomes one of the powerful device ever made.
Infact so called best phone in the world named HTC one m8 got only Adreno 330. Haha.
It's gonna be a leap ahead for Samsung this time.
S5 LTE A is really a break thru..during S5 release I was disappointed by seeing only 2gb ram. Wen note 3 and g2 had 3gb ram. I thought s5 would come up with 3gb or more ram. But now highly satisfied with S5 LTE A version along with Adreno 440 processor !!!!!
Now its time for LG G2 & Sony z2 to get involve in tight competition :)
With the above feature now S5 looks complete and powerful in the name of S5 LTE A!!!!
Regarding its release it has high possibility to get released in the market where S4 LTEA version got released. Includes markets like Singapore, US, Europe. Ibtw let us wait and see the market. Since Sam done some important changes there is a chance for S5 3GB RAM version to get release in more markets !!! Hopefully .
I could notice Since past 3 weeks the price of S5 in many shops has been slashed by around 25%. Now with this s5 LTEA momentum will be back for S5.
Regarding price . S4 LTEA I9506 price was somewhat 10% higher than S4 I9500. I wish same goes for S5 LTEA version. Just add 10% of additional cost to the current price of S5.
Just with the 10% extra coat we r getting 3gb RAM and one of the fastest Adreno 440 processor & of course LTEA with the terrific Internet speed up to 250mbps in a downward link. Means fastest browsing and downloading experience ever.
Cheers . I wish it's time for me to go for S5 LTEA 3GB version from My Samsung S4.
Now the S5 turns truly a flagship with its new version.
Way to go Samsung.
