darkgamer, 03 Jun 2014I'm not saying that any of the s5 or m8 is better phone. THERE IS NEVER A BETTER PHONE. Can yo... moreWell, I am done with metal phones, period. In the past two weeks of using the M7 I understood the disadvantages of it. Horrible reception problem, both about GPS and phone signals. I was shocked actually! So I guess now I have some idea why Samsung is so arrogant to stick with Plastic.
Anyway, about TW, by now everyone knows it has LOADS of features, but the problem is very few people use them! Smart pause, Smart stay, really? They SHOULD remove all those non working / half working nonsense from the framework and focus on optimizing the TW experience. TouchWiz can never match Vanilla experience of Android, unless they make it really optimized. Even half priced Moto X can defeat it and it does! That's a shame.
Z2 on the other hand comes with some apps pre-installed, which with root can easily be removed, as they are apps, not some features like Smart pause and blah blah.
S5 focused on Fingerprint sensor and Heart rate monitor! REALLY? Are you freaking kidding me Samsung? Jeez! Couldn't you just make that so called ISOCELL camera a little be more remotely acceptable in low light? It's a flagship after all!
Anyway, it's quite clear that Z2 can defeat S5 quite easily, both software and hardware wise, but it's still kinda big and the backside of it is a letdown, it can't be gripped as easy as an S5.
Lets see...All I can say Samsung is a respectable brand, they should NOT kill their image with ultra nonsense bloated TouchWiz. Wish there was a S5 Google Play Edition.
AnonD-116479, 03 Jun 2014Try ios 8. You will be extremely satisfy with it. Yeah I have tried iP5S for one week. Believe me, I still have nightmares about it.
Apple is indeed about quality :/

looks like slipper over ear while calling,get iphone 5s,no more lags,once u start using iphone u will never ever think of buying android again in whole life.
AnonD-13185, 03 Jun 2014Someone mentioned that TouchWiz in s5 is quite fast, no not at all, contacts or dialer menu ta... moreGo to developer options in settings and make the animation scale, transition scale and window animation to 0.5x or off. Now open these apps and tell me it's not fast.
And please don't use the multitasking button to kill apps. It's a task switcher, not app killer. The app will obviously open slower if it's not in the RAM. Use the phone properly, it'll be as fast as you want it.
Have a nice day
Someone mentioned that TouchWiz in s5 is quite fast, no not at all, contacts or dialer menu take same time as in s3 or s4. Of course S2 was fast

LG G3 sales three times higher than the Galaxy S5 in Korea...Samsung should have made a better design and not expensive and useless features (like heart rate monitor and finger print sensor). Of course S5 is not a bad phone, but it is just uninspiring and does not stand out from all the other phones as a flagship should do. It is just my opinion...

darkgamer, 03 Jun 2014That's a beta version. Have you tried it? I believe it would be great as all of apple software is.I tried to download ios 8 beta on my dad's iPhone 5s and my little brother's iPod touch, but it only available for developers' ids. I saw some links which can be download without user ID or Dev ID. However, can't trust them. I'm waiting for the official ios 8.
But I saw ios 8 presentation on WWDC event. It seems to be impressive, also their new OS X Yosemite as well.
AnonD-116479, 03 Jun 2014No, you can download it free if you own a Apple ios running device. That's a beta version. Have you tried it? I believe it would be great as all of apple software is.
