Mark, 18 Mar 2014I dont want to pay 700e and then have to pay again for FM FM radio...You can afford 700e but you cannot afford a bluetooth headset with FM radio? If that's the case, better buy a basic phone with built-in radio that wouldn't work without the wired headset and save your 700e.

Graz, 19 Mar 2014Maybe those who like to listen to radio when walking when 3G reception drops, or for those who... moreWe're thinking the same thing .. nice review Graz . I'm a Galaxy S3 user and Galaxy S5 is a big disappointment for me too .. I was expecting great enthusiasm. But I decided to buy Xperia Z2 ..
Yet another plastic-made?! I really don't know when is the right time for SAMSUNG to use full bezel or aluminium instead of that plastic-dot made!! Put so much high expectations to this s5 but end up dissappointment!! Now really hope note 4 will brings out the different!!
P/s: really don't understand.. Samsung is biggest company that being so counting to use aluminium or bezel much! Save cost maybe?

Streaming radio uses a lot of data and I'd go over my limit easily.
I'm leaving Samsung after having my SIII for 2 years. The S4 wasn't really worth an upgrade and I feel the S5 is nothing except a big disappointment. I am not interested in a heart rate sensor- I'd never find any use for it even when I exercise, just a total gimmick. A fingerprint sensor just seems like a good excuse to get people to buy more stuff through Google and I'd not use it to unlock my phone.
That leaves the slightly upgraded camera ...naah. I'm getting a LG G2!

Isn't it better to listen to the radio free from the messy wires?
No need to put the radio in phone, it is just an option.
