The s5 is awsome and features kept its rivals aside. Samsung is doin good and and i dont know people critize such type of phone. I JUST WANNA SAY THAT IT IS NYC PHONE and there is no prob as i'm using frm the first day of its launch
somehow... i dislike samsung policy on keep using 16 gb internal memory.. i mean... why not using 32 gb memory at minimum?
the design is a little bit ugly, and the case... it is still plastic... and i dont think phone with holes has the ability to water resist...

Last year I bought The S4 and I used it only two weeks. I sold it and bought a HTC M7. Samsung's Touchwiz is not quite smooth. It takes around 1 - 1.5 delay to open some basic apps such as phone book, massage and etc.
HTC Sense is very smooth and completely lag free. Anyway, it doesn't have many features as Touchwiz but more than enough for day to day usage. Some Touchwiz features are utterly useless to me in day to day usage. However, I like the Samsung's keyboard over HTC's. It's ideal for fast and accurate typing.
MARCUS LOEWE, 22 Apr 2014Samsung steals from LG many patents, as for example the patents related to OLED technologyI exactly don't know that Samsung stole OLED technology from LG. Anyways, Samsung is not in the OLED market anymore. Samsung have stooped manufacturing OLED displays due to poor market share. LG is the dominant supplier in the OLED market.
But I know some features that Samsung exactly copied from its rivals.
Smart Pause = LG Optimus G Pro
S Wallet = Apple Passbook
S Voice = Apple Siri
Magazine = HTC Blinkfeed

if they come out with a smaller screen with same specs(but no need for full HD), it would be even better than the sony z1 compact since the z1 has non-user removable battery

It is only good for those who don't have S4 and want water resistant.
Anyway I just bought it last Saturday and still observing.
And I'm not using it for gaming, instead I use my Note 3 for games. Better go for Note 3 Snapdragon for smooth gaming experience.

I sold my S4 i9505 snapdragon version and i hated that it lagged during playing heavy games like Dungeon Hunter 4, NBA 2k13, 2k14, thor etc... Thanks in advance, bro! :) Peace
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2014total waste of money hd games lags in it.... unable to play hitman and asphalt 6Are you serious bro?! I am planning to buy it tomorrow!!! I hated the lag in my previous S4 i9505! Do you have the Exynos or the Qualcomm version? Man i will be upset if this is true! :(((( Dungeon Hunter 4 was impossible to be played on the S4 more than 10 minutes!
In Pakistan its exynos with warranty sets, we are too penalized with India. Its sheer cunningness on part of Sammy, OK we don't have 4 G but its still has ur bands ad works, only to save money thinking us nitwits, will by a 780$ set with low spec. We are a Billion people let's join hands n boycott Sammy products, fr this discriminate treatment. Today Note 4 rounded edge announced design registered, maybe we get old Note3 upgrade sets.
If I buy Galaxt s5 IN SEOUL, South Korea, will it work in Africa where the standard is GSM.?
