AnonD-205654, 10 Jun 2014It doesn't get hot. I use mine all the time. I think because the Galaxy S line is so popular... moreGSMArena's voting system works perfectly. It's the voters which is a problem. Most of the voters are samsung haters or fanboys who haven't even seen the phone. They rate the phone 1,1, and 1 in all the 3 fields.
This is a general trend. All people know that xperia z or z1 were fails with pathetic screens, bad cameras, lag and overheating issues but still they have 8.8 ratings due to all the people voting are sony fanboys.
Just ignore the ratings and read reviews, especially GSMArena reviews.
And yes, I saw you on blog yesterday. Hope you saw me( Walter Boratheon).
Have a nice day

I think because the Galaxy S line is so popular. Then you find others wanting to trash it so their platform might get viewed at or another phone might get a chance. Look at the voting results. How can the performance of the S5 be a 5.5 on gsmarena? Even the features, no other phone currently on the market has as many features as the S5. Yet its rated at only a 5.3. This alone should tell people that gsmarena voting system does not work.

Weak network signal will cause the phone to heat up more.
doodoojan, 10 Jun 2014Hi, I am planning to buy S5 but afraid due to comments related to S5 about getting Hot. I liv... mores5 heat up issue is coomon with ALL mobiles.. nothing to do with outside temps ..batteries heat up when batteries are under strain ..poor quality batteries -most made in china - batteries exploding also .. but WORLDS MOST BATTERIES ARE MADE IN CHINA - poor quality !! buy s5 -very good phone ..if battery swells -get changed under warranty by samsung ..
chris, 10 Jun 2014How about gaming in this phone?Excellent!!Full HD High Graphics on all games!The 5.1 inch screen in just big enough to enjoy ever game.I have tested Subway Surfers,Temple run(All 4 parts),Asphalt 8,GTA 3,Vice city,Sanandreas,NOVA 3,Batman:TDKR,Gangstar Vegas,Rio,Assassins Creed Pirates,Fifa 14,Real Racing 3,Real Football,Wild Blood,Sims Freeplay Etc.They all are too good.I have the 64GB model and a external 32gb card.So if you are going to buy the device, I will recommend you to buy a 16/32gb model and buy a external 16/32/64 GB ext card cause S5 supports games on SD CARD too.I hope It helped you.

mr cool, 10 Jun 2014I have many phone like xperia zl,nokia lumia 620,galaxy quattro,xperia zr,xperia z,galaxy y,xp... moreWhy would you need that many phones, not to bash but i think you need a life or a girl to spend money on. No one should have that many phones unless your a street chemist!
I wonder why there's no Stereo FM radio with RDS ?
I really wish this would be built-in as it was in SGS III and before :(
I have many phone like xperia zl,nokia lumia 620,galaxy quattro,xperia zr,xperia z,galaxy y,xperia z1 and BEST phone i have is galaxy note 3,galaxy s5 and xperia z2
mr cool, 10 Jun 2014This is amazing phone and i want to shoot underwater it is necessaryCool!
Sometimes we need to be honest and mature in reasoning.
All phones have their shortfalls but let's not discredit even what we do not know.
S5 is comparatively a nice phone with good camera resolution and downloadable apps.
