Tcool, 13 Apr 2014It is copying the Apple iPhone without the menu key.Or, you could say, it's adapting to Google interface standards... Check Nexus screens and next google launcher.
i was just visited the gallery to see the chances for PRE-book. it made me sad as i the phone is very poor in sound quality, processor looks bit faster but all other features feels conservative Samsung.
boohoo, 13 Apr 2014Samsung always try to copy what other phone does. Like this s5 copying the iphone 5s with that... moreThat's great!
I am going to trade my tiny screen iPhone 4 to Samsung Galaxy S5 tonight.
Thanks for that compliment!

Because only LTE unit has Snapdragon 801, the cheaper one has Exynos 5 Octa.
Which is better?
If it is Snapdragon 801, therefore even though the LTE is not well delveloped in the place where you are going to use it, it is still worth to buy the LTE unit with Snapdragon 801.
Nothing innovative. Just another phone out there. Samsung cant innovate anymore. Competitors are out with 2K display such as LG and China manufacturer.

LTE is only market dependant. A simple question is : is LTE well developped where you are ? If not, you can go for a cheaper phone instead, if yes, well there are other brands for about same price.

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...
