if you want to enjoy android get the Nexus 5, its a beast, pure google phone.
Another reason why Samsung phones are better is that it doesn't have navigational bars because they already have their dedicated keys (Menu, Home, and Back). Great for gaming. Naturally full screen.
HTC and Sony phones have navigational bars. No full screen support for games. The navigational bars stays on the screen while playing games. It can be accidentally pressed while playing.
However, if your phones are rooted you can install third party apps that hides the navigational bar. Most are buggy and not all phones are supported. Or custom ROMs. It's too much of a hassle.
Nothing beats a phone with its own dedicated keys for gaming.
hi guys!! what do you think is better in over all specs?? s4 or s5??
Whole galaxy series has the same build quality i.e. Plasticky!..
from entry level to flagship level!..
lil, 07 Apr 2014all this accessories yet no simple radio....what a shame... Simple radio is for simple phone.
There is nothing like anyone has copied from each other.every company has to always see what their competitors are making and make something like that.this shouldnt be given the name of copying. First apple launched the fingerprint sensor, it doesent mean that samsung is not allowed to make something like that. We the consumers, actually get a variety of products available in the market and can choose the best from those!
Don't use this phone without any kind of case. The camera on the back just pops over the back body and when u leave your phone lying on back every time u hit the camera so it will unfocus or just brake.
So thats realy bad decision about the design by samsung, otherwise this will be the best smartphone on market till the next LG comes up.

When it comes to the best battrey life on Android phones it goes to HTC one max then LG G flex and both phones/phaplets comes with non removable battrey.
Jhonty, 07 Apr 2014Amazing specs on paper but which really matter is that how is this device performs cause if we... moreMan, the main reason why Steve Jobs wanted the iPhone with a sealed battery was he doesn't want anyone tinkering with his product. With increasing processing speeds and functions, its current battery with a full charge can never suffice for someone who would constantly be updated with social network notifications, downloads, email, and gaming.
But because Apple still wants to be thinner and small, the battery hasn't grown much. Try using LTE on an iPhone. It'll last only 3 hours. Jobs never signed off with LTE. He knew a full charge won't last with such a tiny battery.
It's such an irony that Sony and HTC followed this with their top devices, forcing users to carry ugly portable power banks and chargers to plug in the middle of the day. I thought the main point of a sleek modern device is to be MINIMALIST, and not have to be plugged in more than half the time your are using it. A minimalist concept would also mean less things - like not carrying anything else.
I am a heavy user, and would only just carry a small thin battery late afternoon. No worries about running out even with downloading torrents, internet radio, notifications, watching shows, and using my device as a wifi hotspot. I'd change to a fresh battery only late afternoon, and that battery will last for another 12 hours of heavy usage with a 5 hours+ of actual screen on usage. I charge the spent extra battery with a cradle charger at home while I sleep.
Thank Samsung has been maintaining a removable battery, as I'd rather be really WIRELESS entire time I'm using my mobile device. Try saying that with an iPhone. Yeah, you must really love carrying a charger and power bank.
Amazing specs on paper but which really matter is that how is this device performs cause if we go back to 2014 then we'll see that Samsung Galaxy-S5 had great specs on paper but s5 is very sluggish. Now i know why apple doesn't give the option of removable battery cause that is not needed but if Samsung doesn't do that then we'll not be able to do anything else without waiting if it hangs , just 2 days ago i was playing nfs on s5 and suddenly it stopped working and i didn't had any other option so i had to remove battery and i had used iPhone 4s,5s i didn't experienced any lag whatsoever

Removable battery is not the reason for lagging so don't make it a reason for Apple not to have a removable battery for their iPhones with the functions of 2011 phones.
