Tcool, 07 May 2014What? You call 8.1 mm thin phone bulky? M8 and Z2 are more bulky than S5.Well S4 is only 7.9 mm they add a little bulked to S5 due to the water resistant protection. You don't even see the difference. Unless you always carry a ruler with you. its not the end of the world people. ;-)

Am so OCD when it comes to my screen, the tempered glass screen protector is a Genius. I love it, I just think i scratch my s-view window because of i keep cleaning my finger prints.
Got my S5 yesterday, its superb.. the screen display and overall functionality, smooth performance so far :')

Brynn, 07 May 2014Number 4, do you mean volume output via headphones is not that loud? I have not used S5 yet on... moreI don't remember from my S4, but on S5 it's loud enough both for music and calls, i don't even need to push it to the max (12th level out of 15).
Call quality is really crisp from handset.
jhun, 06 May 2014Is the S5 features the AIRVIEW and can capture images from video???pls.reply with my email. Xy... moreYes you have airview like before. You only miss the Quick Glance feature from S4.
For images capturing from video you can like before after enabling the options in the video player.

That has been typical of S series so far great DAC but power amplifier part is cheap and shoddy giving nice audio but shoddy power output via 3.5mm jack..
The water resistance works pretty well:

ozmoi, 06 May 2014I don't think iPhones are basic. Back in 2007 if Apple did not introduce iPhone, Google will n... moreLet's be real, Samsung's "tricks and gimmicks" were called that by tech journalists who weren't really techy at all and only knew how to use ios. Now a few years later and with people learning more about technology, same journalists display more cautiousness and even sometimes bend over backwards praising Samsung more.
If anything, it's Apple who mastered making those tricks and gimmicks into a marketing ploy called innovation. No native video call function? Make a proprietary app and call it "face time". Phone doesn't have the highest ppi? Argue that at a certain resolution, pixels will not really matter to the naked eye and brand it "retina display".

Then you didn't use any S5 i think. The 16gb has 11gb available to user, not 4gb. And there's almost nothing preinstalled on the phone when you unpack it (no chat@n, bloomberg, watchon etc..) in case you wanted to say it's bloated.
Then, my guess is that either there are many trolls / liars around or many people buy unofficial Samsung phones thinking they are real (that exists). Especially out of Europe, Korea and USA.
I have seen no Galaxy defective around me since S2, i know there can be troubles with some units but i know many people who never got a real hardware problem with their phone excepted battery draining (due to bad roms or apps).
