Galaxy S5 though has a potential to be be best performer of 2014 it is loosing its ground by its un-friendly tactics like pricing, cheap build quality, poor elements used in the design build, releasing plenty of versions in subgroups of flagship.. And above all still persisting with their home brew cheap Exynos chipset which is not even a match to other flagship models like sony xperia Z2 , Htc M8 , oppo find 7, even last year flagsgips like nexus 5 lumia 1520 etc..
Even though the camera is excellent and touchwiz is somewhat lighter yet still same boring thing.. Its ultimately 'Not the Next Big Thing'... But a slight improvement over the Previous 'Big thing'..
Until Note 4 gets unvield..( With a universal snapdragon chipset and saying goodbye to their exynos one) this year will be dominated by xperia Z2..
I was really looking forward to this next s series but disappointed by its design snd build quality and yet high pricing for this cheap thing. Since JK Shim himself has told that there is no premium S5 with better build quality.. Its xperia Z2 all the way now..
is there any time when Samsung will ever change the designs and especially the icons of their models.

Samsung knows what's best for each region.
In real life exynos can never beats snapdragon thats why samsung lower the price of exynos model phones.in some market they are selling all thesame price because people don't know the difference.so. Open ur. Eye

Register a complain at consumer rights. Generating heat is not bad, your GPU is working full scale!As for performance please specifically explain where it falls. Playing HD videos, HD games (all GPUs generate enormous heat with asphalt 8 my bros Lumia 1520 with Qualcomm 800 cpu heat is unbearable to touch), WEb browser performance playing flash videos! Also specify the android version.
Else stop crying and spamming the forums with impulsively repeated comments.

Why samsung is doing this... Are they experimenting with indians? No 4G and exynos processor for indian version, samsung thinks indian are fools to buy dis crap for 51k...
I planned to buy d phone, but seeing different processor & no 4G in indian version, I have changed my plans.
hai guys Samsung cheating Indian peoples ,check the processor and version details in the box back side either exynos processor or snapdragan processor. exynos processor is generate more heat and performance also not good so please check and then purchase.
Note: Samsung cheating Indians so be careful

yea. like u said summary :
- S5 : rich feature, decent performance, good battery life + removable but cheap build quality and poor design (actually i like S4 design more)
- Z2 : good design and performance thx to snapdragon and 3GB RAM but lack of feature and decent to poor battery life (according to experienced users who used Z series so far)
- Htc one : beast Audio, nice build quality and good performance but lack of feature and so pricy..
well, every1 have + and - so buy smartphone to suit your needs, prestige comes second.

In reply to your comment that a phone is not responsible for the kind of network you get is not completely correct ...i have first hand experience on this i own a samsung galaxy grand and the s4 but coverage wise the grand beats the s4 as i always get full H+ on grand but on 3g on the s4 ..explain that

Have you tried playing Asphalt 8 on Snapdragon 800 CPU? Back gets burning hot! Mac laptops are infamous for overheating this doesn't mean that they are low performance PCs! Get your facts straight. Those phones S. s2, s3 were way above there times performance wise thanks to Exynos, when qualcomm suffering stagnancy. Iphone 3gs could play HD movies thanks to Power VR! You are a whiny new kid who has to post impulsively......whatever crap!
If you are so disappointed with Samsung this ain't your section! look elsewhere. PLEASE elaborate your performance criteria! You compulsively kept buying Exynos backed phones just to whine at the end! There were always alternates in market! Thats your shortcoming!
