The one big thing that i see time and time again is that the finger print scanner is sub-par.
I own this unit and if i register my thumb and use the scanner to unlock with my thumb on the same hand i am holding it i do find that the recognition is no as good and this is likely due to the fact that the exact held position is different every time and thus effecting the angle and thumb is read, however when i registered my index finger and hold it the phone in the other hand my failure rate was 0% on 20 swipes.
Having upgraded from a GS3 with cyanogenmod i have found the UI about the same speed, but considering that cyanogenmod is closer to android vanilla then the GS5 that is a testament to how fast the GS5 is. Even so the usual trappings of touchwiz is right for some and not for others.
The phone itself is what you would come to expect from samsung, solid efficient, safe.
giving tough competition for honda activa and hero splendor.with its price.
you can purchase a 2 wheeler for this price.
I used this phone for a few days...looks and feels like an S3. The Note 3 for the same price is so much better looking and better to use...I can't believe how a 700 $ phone so powerful can be so laggy in every menu. Waiting desperatly for LG G3...or i keep my Note 3
@tanny-buy a lumia 1520,at the end of your shift,you will still.have 50% battery left

Anonymous, 15 Apr 2014S5 new owners only - any heating issues s5-442 or any other major issues ? It heats more than S4 under heavy usage, maybe comparable to S3.
What major issue are you expecting? you would have read that everywhere by then.
i do not like that Samsung turned the "settings" button from the left corner into a "task manager" button. it is a big inconvenience
