it looks ugly.....! and price also very high for this crap.
51k for a non lte device ??? samsung cheating with people....
On the software part, this time when you turn on your phone for first time, it's not even "bloated" with all kind of apps like it was on S3 (i think there were more on S3 than on S4).
You get the choice to go on Samsung apps to install them or not.
They seemed to have totally redevelopped their whole touchwizz system (which is not only a simple UI as many think) since now apps like camera doesn't get all options like on my S4, you need to download effects or camera modes from Samsung Apps to complete it.
Worth mentionning that compared to other brands that loyal fans are bragging over here, since S3 samsung is always offering many apps as presents to Galaxy S owners. I don't get that on other brands and that makes a difference for customers caring.
It's not about S-Apps which some are quite clever/well done, we get games and other handy or productivy apps each times, not only when receiving the phone but also for holidays / events and randomly.
There's one bad inconvenient guys which is worth mentionning.
I have gone through a lot of Android smartphones besides all Galaxy S and that disturbs me on S5 :
There's no "menu" key. It has now been replaced with a "stupid" task switching key!
Seriously Samsung CEO?
I sincerly hope we won't need the standard "menu" key within apps...
tht is flop phone... bettery life is so small compair XPERIA Z2 look is also bed n sound also not dolby ya surrounded or not water resistance so flop!!!
biggame5493, 13 Apr 2014Store demos are ALWAYS slow. You need to try a real model to base your opinion. Yep, even if it was a retail phone, it would be slow, since store demos are used by anyone, doing anything on them and phones are hardly rebooted and/or upgraded.
Tcool, 13 Apr 2014You will get used to it.
By the time S6 will come you will say the same thing that your S5 ... moreWell, i'm honest : no.
I might get used to it, but i don't think so. It's really feeling bad this time and it's first time i think of it.
Anyway, i already ordered a black protecting case to hide it, and preordered the wireless back cover + base in black to get another look.
I don't know for materials of S6, but i'm almost sure to get it since, i wanted 64bits and QHD to upgrade from S4.
It's only because i got a -30% deal on it that i ran to upgrade.
s13, 13 Apr 2014I want to buy this phone anybody can tell me a charger of galaxy s5 is same as s3 or not.Charger is same as S3 which was the same as S4. 5V / 2A if i remember.
UchihA-MadarA, 12 Apr 2014My budget is 30k . which phone will be good ?go for NEXUS 5.....
Simply dissapointing,especially the plaster looking back cover,even my grandma stand beside me asked my why the plaster look so thick
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2014OK Guys.
Just bought a S5 because i had a good deal in my country upon reselling my previou... moreYou will get used to it.
By the time S6 will come you will say the same thing that your S5 is better and bla bla bla.
Move on will you?
Samsung always try to copy what other phone does. Like this s5 copying the iphone 5s with that fingerprint sensor. Apple should sue Samsung!!! I will never buy samsung. They need to nake their own ideas and change the world like steve jobs used to in 2007. I never see the bright future of samsung smartphones if they keep copying other phones have..

Anonymous, 12 Apr 2014The design is a backstep from that of the S4. The processing power is impressive for a smartph... moreI second him, i don't know if you bought it, but i mostly agree with you. (i mostly agree because i'm not fond of Note series). Frankly guys, S4 was the best of the series for now in my opinion (excepted for brightness, cpu and maybe battery off course).
Tcool, 12 Apr 2014How is the charging slot cover when charging?
Maybe frequent opening and closing when chargin... moreThe cover for charging slot is a pain in the a** for plugging your cable the first times.
I had a few phones like that like motorola and so, it's quite comparable, i don't think it will wear off easily if you don't pull it off like a kid each time.
