Thing is i am playing 4K video from laptop thru HDMI to 1080p tele so don't know what pure 4K looks like but its SUPERB and this is only indoor footage.Must get some more footage and this 4K is future proofing for when world goes 4K. Folk are also getting 8MP stills off the footage so you can video event and grab your photos later.
Can not get 4K vids to play thru windows media player so using GOM player if anyones stuck.
I'd, 11 May 2014Hi guy. Where is the Samsung Galaxy S5 made? Korea or China? I know S4 was made in Korea. ThanksS5 which country is the right manufacture?
AnonD-116479, 11 May 2014Bro, 3 min 4K video is approximately 1 GB. You have mentioned that you recorded four 5 min 4K ... moreIt automatically uses micro sd card when you have one inserted.I am using 64GB card with 11GB left so there was space ..Every smartphone in modern times records video till memory runs out so why a 2014 flagship stops at 5 mins is beyond me ATM.In past some Nokias in 2004 had 10 minute video limit but this is top of range flagship 10 years later..Anyway does not matter just sending it back.
Saying fanboy was a bit childish i am 53 now and just makes me feel sorry that folk have to say such a silly thing.

You have mentioned that you recorded four 5 min 4K videos and took 200 photos. I guess that 4K video recording failure should be lack of memory space, check your available memory space. Normally, Videos or photos taken from the camera are directly saving into the phone memory. However, you can adjust the settings the way they saving directly into the SD Card. Once your phone memory is full, the video recording will automatically stopping. I have experienced that.
My advice is before going to buy a phone you should do some research about it. Don't be a fan boy, and concern about every brand and any phone fairly. Buy a phone which mostly satisfying your preferences. It's too late to remorse after buy it.
Tcool, 11 May 2014Please give your honest opinion on the quality of the photo taken by its main camera with the ... moreI am giving camera 8/10.
Indoor shots at 16 MP are good but not impressive on my 15 inch laptop but on phone itself are pin sharp.Its great to be able to zoom in and not pixelate because the highest MP cam ive owned is Nokia N8 and my Cannon is 10MP.I find noise levels to be quite good you can get bit fuzzy effect in low light but cant see any blue or red dots that i usually get with other camera phones. The big problem for me is the colour, on phone is superb but my laptop makes them look washed out..Nothing is at fault its looking at super amoled then lcd on laptop.
Outdoor shots i am doing some today but its cloudy.I also want to do some 4K outdoor video,,my goodness its 1.65GB per 5 minute video but wish i can extend it do you know how?
Water proofing should be in all mid top range phones because when it rains you cant use phone..You could use phones but warranty gets void if litmus paper turns red so not worth risk..

Also the water resistant and the expandalbe memory via microSD up to 128 GB feature which your Nexus 5 is not.
What cant understand is why my 4K video capture is set at 5 minutes plus sometimes its says "Recording Failure" and rebooting device does not clear this..The only way is to take a photo then video will start recording again,this is 4K mode only..
I found my first charge to be very good,did twitter,200 photos, 20 mins 4K video(4 x 5 mins) set up phone,played 2 hrs music and so on and got just over 9 hrs..
Speaker is scratchy and vibrates whole back panel..Its loud enough just not too pleasant..I am not going to comment on audio through headphones as its personnel choice but loud enough for me..
Screen is very bright but colours not as deep as my S2.
Not interested in finger sensor or heart monitor,,tried fingerprint sensor and indoors it worked fairly good more gimmick to me cant be bothered.
It does feel light and bit slippy in hands but because I know I am sending it back will not buy a case or get one in time before 14 day return period to try.I don't like cases rather look at the phone I bought..
Don't know what else to say its not as fast as my Nexus 5 was ,no way ,its just another Samsung flagship Galaxy S..

I'd, 11 May 2014Hi guy. Where is the Samsung Galaxy S5 made? Korea or China? I know S4 was made in Korea. ThanksOf course it is originated from Korea.
But to lessen the labor expenses, they assemble the units from different countries with less labor cost like China and Vietnam, but the parts are originally made in Korea. Especially if they will sell it to far countries, they need to balance the labor cost and shipment cost.
Units sold in Korea spend less in shipment thereby no need to assemble from China or Vietnam.
You can go there if you want originally made in Korea.

It's like consulting a veterinarian for your medical check up. LOL!
You should go to the official Samsung website.

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.

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.
