I've read that in various reviews and also felt in real life. The white and golden have same feel and and black and Blue have same finish.
The feels are not vastly different but they are different. The white one is more solid and black is more soft.
For the color, it's subjective I guess. I had an xperia u white before and it smudged line anything. After 5 months it wasn't even white. After that I decided to never get white.
Have a nice day

I owned a white note before and it didn't turn brown or yellow after two years of use, plus the white colour of s5 is not exactly white, it's more like cream or very light beige. the perforated back is also very good at rejecting stuff and it won't get dirty so easily. i've also seen many reviews saying white one looks better. i think white looks more refreshing and clean and black kinda exaggerates the dimples on the back. i think black one is also very nice especially it integrates well with the display on the front, honestly i had a hard time choosing the colour of my s5, but personally i like the white one more.

This phone is kinda meh. Samsungs UI still sucks (settings has 9!!! categories) and there is lots of stuff that you don't want, but Samsung things you need. It's still a nice phone I guess, it doesn't disappoint, but it doesn't amaze either. I'm sad that the fingerprint sensor doesn't act as password manager. Right now it's pretty useless.
+ nice screen
+ nice camera
+ battery life is average, but can be swapped
+ water resistant (haven't flushed it down the toilet like some youtubers, but nice to have)
+ 50GB dropbox storage for 2y
- Samsungs horrendous software
- butt ugly silver frame (sure to look even uglier after some wear)
- 1000 settings/gimmicks, but no real fine tuning of crucial things
You won't do wrong buying this and if you like Samsung, go for it. If it wasn't for Sony's absolutely atrocious and uncaring customer service, I would've gone for an Xperia Z2. But Samsung it is....

It's feel is plasticky and it looks plasticky. The black one has a soft touch feel to it. Also Black one looks better and will not get dirty. I've also seen reviews see the same.
I currently using note 3 but if a free wifi not too strong then cannot get any. I want to try S5. Ill try if good in wifi connections. Hope so.
Jonathan , 14 May 2014is the back cover of the Samsung galaxy s5 ugly?trust me it's not ugly and it looks especially good in white, it's extremely capable at rejecting fingerprints and scratches, I didn't like the design at first but now i think it isn't too bad.
besides the battery life, how is z2 better? or how is s5 worse? people are getting biased here.

s4 , 15 May 2014Hey s5 users iam interested to know os there a big deffirence between gaming on s5 w.r.t s4 is... moreObviously adreno 330 is more powerful than powervr sgx544mp3 in s4. But I don't think you'll feel much difference in real life as both gpu are very powerful and will run any game easily. Adreno 330 is a more futureproof and will run the future high end games much better than the powervr gpu but that will only matter if you're a hard core gamer. To get a feel of gaming difference, I'm posting the results of epic citadel which uses unreal engine and is the best test of real world performance.
Performance setting( low end games):
s4: 59.8 fps. S5 59.8 fps
Quality seeing( good games):
S4: 59.2 fps. S5: 59.6 fps
Ultra setting( very high end and future games):
S4: 47 fps. S5: 53 fps
If you own an s4, don't upgrade to s5 due to the gaming as the difference is not much. But if you want to choose between s4 and s5 based on gaming, choose the s5 as it has better performance on high end and future games.
