When use the phone in hot summer or cold winter. Plastic does not go much hotter or cold, while matel Alumnium got much hot / cold and we dont feel pleasant and dont want to hold in hand.
Moreover, with heat metal Alu transfer its heat to body's internal part and may destroy the electric components.
So samsung make phone for every season and every region/ area of the world.
there are also 4gb ram available phones then they are better than Z2,
Samsung has included more functions which are not singly present in any other device.
i think the performance of the phone is great w/ 2.5ghz quad-core processor and 16mp back .. the front however is still the same as the s2 or many phones of the samsung brand .. nevertheless the same body of plastic materials .. sure the resolution is quite good but people need a phone that is duable and most efficient that will outlast even the upcoming years of generations ..
kutshenry, 18 Mar 2014No radio, Plastic design, too big,,What really happened Samsung??!!!!Who on earth wants an actual radio receiver when you can stream audio, including radio, from the internet seamlessly?
Plastic design? Pah. Robust, doesn't break, doesn't need repairing in an Apple store every other month.
And too big? Are you serious? People WANT big!
RoOSTA, 18 Mar 2014I agree, disgraceful. Doesn't hurt to put a cheapo chip in the phone so people can enjoy radio... moreYep, adding a radio FM chip would have cost only a few cents more but created lots of sales. Instead of that expensive and useless heart monitor...Hey Samsung, what about a fart detector for the S6...?

Anonymous, 18 Mar 2014Download tunein. The best radio app. Sure, and I will never ever ask for a built-in FM radio that requires the messy headset wires.
Tcool, 18 Mar 2014I want a radio to be use with Bluetooth headset not the messy wired headset. Download tunein. The best radio app.
gege, 18 Mar 2014you can manualy install it hermithemit means to have radio build in as to be used without internet connection.
this days samsung doesnt to this with phones with 2giga ram memory, only those with 1g and below.
Well,some people said that s5 look like s1 and s2.lol.for me,I think it look more like s3.
galaxy s5 its very nice phone with new features.
how many people use radio i thing 10% out of 100% people can use the option of radio.
one option not built in so forget that option and use s5 feel free.thats very nice phone.

Chrome bezal.. fail. Plastic build.. major fail. The little cut out underneath the camera looks cheap, Heart rate monitor.. what the he'll?? It's a phone!!!
RoOSTA, 18 Mar 2014I agree, disgraceful. Doesn't hurt to put a cheapo chip in the phone so people can enjoy radio... moreI disagree, radio is just an option.
You cannot use the built-in radio without the wired headset, that is disgraceful.
