Enough with the fingerprint nonsense!
Are people really uber concerned with privacy nowadays?
People expose themselves on social media.
Phones already have password and pattern security already, we can even wipe the contents of the phone via gps.
Anonymous, 09 Apr 2014Never did I imply that. We have already had for years fingerprint scanners on laptops for year... moreOMG! Maybe Apple will sue Samsung agiain regarding this stuff.
I hope Motorola will do the same to the fruit company.

HTC M8 also won the "Best Phone" award at the MWC 2014. HTC have won this award two in a row.
Apparently the brand new Samsung Galaxy S5 is still not as powerful as the iPhone 5S which is 6 months old. And this isn't even the iPhone 6, which is going to use an even more advanced chip.
HTC One M8 is also more powerful than the SGS5.

Why People are comments of Copying technology? Should last a new invention with single product!!!?
Smartphone manufacturers havn't lern yet .
They need to build the phone with a built in bumper. Adding a bumper to the device increases it's size to an already too big device . Why not merge the bumper with the device ?

What I mind is Samsung bashing Apple and other companies and afterwards stealing their ideas,features and presenting them as something special and new. You can't pretend to be better than someone when all what you do is copy their work and even don't do it right. I remember a catch phrase on the internet for copying: " Dude he totally samsunged my homework." But even so I like the Note lineup from Samsung especially because of the Wacom digitizer and the stylus. Samsung should focus more on that lineup since phablets are what they do better than the competition.
I remember a time when products where original or had original features.
Now these days everyone has to copy and paste, copy and paste. Why can't companies be original these days?

We have already had for years fingerprint scanners on laptops for years but with mediocre usability. Apple was the first company to just do it right. My point is that the Samsung Galaxy S5 fingerprint scanner is totally copy pasted from Touch ID . I hope they don't ruin the Note line up though with the usual galaxy gimmicks.

Tcool, 09 Apr 2014Finger print scanner is not originally from iPhone 5s. iPhone just copied it from Motorola. I don't remember the Motorola atrix having a fingerprintscanner on the home button . Even if by any chance it had it was a POS sensor. Oh and the first smartphone with the fingerprint scanner was the HTC Shift. Out is more than obvious that Samsung blatantly cured Apple with this choice the year Apple released Touch ID and they didn't even do a half decent job. If it was done right and had a proper reliable recognition they could at least get some props for that but this was just a bad copy paste. I guess they are right when they ssh for someone who crippl

But this on... moreI think it's more important to be proud of your own face then being proud of the back of your phone that is probably protected by a cover . So just buy yourself a pretty cover if you don't like the design
