Hi guy. Where is the Samsung Galaxy S5 made? Korea or China? I know S4 was made in Korea. Thanks
steve the just., 10 May 2014It has no FM radio. In Africa radio is one of the important communication media.Install TuneIn radio app.
It can give you not only local radio stations but international radio stations for your "improtant communication media".

steve the just., 10 May 2014It has no FM radio. In Africa radio is one of the important communication media.I'm pretty sure you can radios all around you then. Seriously, people complaining about radio should just check another phone (there are thousands others i guess) or buy a 5$ radio in a shop to listen to it.
Fruitcake, 10 May 2014People who have kept Loyal to Samsung will be disappointed with the Battery put into the Galax... moreYou're complaining that you're getting another battery cradle charger for the S5? You can find a spare battery & cradle charger bundle for around $50. You charge at home.
It's better and much more efficient than carrying & charging with a portable power bank.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 introduces features to you that no other smartphone does. For example, it has gestures that no other smartphone offers, and they can really be useful. So consider before buying a phone. Samsung Galaxy S5 should be your first choice. I'd choose it over the HTC M8 or iPhone 5S regardless of people saying that S5 contains extra functions. Furthermore, people calling the S5 a bandaid is an insult to Samsung, as they consider everything before creating; and the perforated back came into being so the phone has less chances of falling. I.e. It gives an impressive grip to the phone. The IP67 certification should really be IP68. I've tested my phone in my swimming pool for 2 hours and it was working perfectly and as smooth as day one. The Samsung Galaxy S5 changed my life in terms of smartphone choices.
People who have kept Loyal to Samsung will be disappointed with the Battery put into the Galaxy S5,as the batteries on the S3 and S4 you were able to use the Portable battery chargers to Charge the Extra Battery people bought,but now will have buy another Portable battery charger to charge up your Spare batteries,Why?didn"t Samsung think about this before changing the Battery Size on the S5,o.k the batterylife is better on the S5 but Samsung did not seem to think about the extra cost for consumers
ManoharManohar, 10 May 2014May be !Not maybe, it's sure, it doesn't have any problem.
It has no FM radio. In Africa radio is one of the important communication media.
S5 is sooo amazing looks from front side because SUPER AMOLED screen but iphone is better only from back side because old lcd in front. You better understand what I mean.
ManoharManohar, 10 May 2014S4 has hell of problems! But not S5.
Ladies and Gents,
I've owned most of the highest-end phones going back to 1996.
The GS5 is a bit big for a phone. My M7 (HTC One) was pushing the size limits for me, but this is as big as I'll EVER own now.
Screen has a 'green tint' to it. I shall have it calibrated as it is annoying. HTC One M7 much better.
Wifi is amazing. Fastest connection & range I've seen for a mobile phone.
Antutu score 37222. HTC One M7 25000.
Battery life is amazing too - and charge-time the best I've seen so far. (these two reasons were the motivation for my purchase)
Water proof too.
Speaker is not brilliant. HTC One much better.
16GB default storage is a bit of a slap across the face at this price level.
Due to the size (and I hated the Note 3 size), this is a definite 'try before you buy'. S4 is the most natural size for my hands.
Hope that helps someone out there...
The battery performance & recharge time is the main thing here...
shishir-tab, 09 May 2014Why this phone gets such low ratings? In design sector, it may get below 5. But what about pe... morei agree the design is not the best looking but it worths at least 6 or 7, the perforated back cover is really good at rejecting fingerprints and scratches, and like gsmarena said the build quality is really up to flagship standards, it's compact and feels right in hand. the only thing i don't appreciate is the plastic body. honestly i own a gs5 it doesn't look too bad in white. i think people are just voting blindly solely because of the bad design.
