People using wired headset have no option for the radio to work.
Do you have a way for the built-in radio to work without the wired headset?
Another thing built-in radio only broadcast local radio stations, how about when you are working in other country where the broadcast is in local language and you can not understand, will you enjoy listening to the radio?
You are only thinking about your own self.
Radio is just an optional feature! NOT A MUST!
Still no wireless charging ? I have wireless Qi on my s4 but had to put it there myself.Luckally there a couple of prongs sticking up under the battery cover , but you have to get your Qi coil from Amazon or ebay. Tell me if I missed it , did not see it in the above specs !

Lets talk about the camera, the camera sensor from Sony is better and is proven.
Second, you can also use heart rate monitor from the sensor and this is just stupid useless gimmick nothing more.
Fingerprint, not new so sammy boys suddenly accept finger print scanner while they always complain about Apple how bad finger print scanner is, typical sammy boys.
You forget the screen, o wait you don't put that because the screen of the Z2 is mile ahead of that oversatured Amoled crap.
The Battery, depend how people use the phone.
Build quality, very strange that you won't come up with that part.
Well we already know that Z2 feels premium while S5 feels plastic toy.
Processor, both use 801 and S5 has a little bit higher clock speed no different for daily use.
The sound, the S5 has just mono speaker while the Z2 has stereo speakers.
The Z2 has also 1 GIG more RAM, i think depend how the phone OS and the skin use the RAM.
The S5 is water and dust resistance, while the Z2 is Dust and water PROOF!! IP 68 vs IP 58
The design is also much better on the Z2, the S5 is boring and ugly.
So, do i need go on with your selective garbage talk?
Aidan, 21 Mar 2014Samsung only for me, may wait for the S6. S5 better than anything else out there from what I know...What do you know?
Can you explane a little bit more ?

Iphone users are accustomed to the lack of fm radio but that does not mean you do not need. Apple's business is selling the ipod so they can remedy that lack.

And I didn't said they are all listening to radio,I said that the people who use wired headsets,so that's not important for them if they have to use it for radio too.
And if you consider that without radio you should PAY for internet radio and lose some data,it will be important for you,Actually you are not a radio user,so you don't care for any of these.Thats All.
im an iphone user and im getting sick of people complaining about radio !! god download the app?? store your favourite song on your phone ... its really not hard or data draining..
i once chose samsung phone over the iphone because of the built in fm radio,many people still prefer to use the free fm radio,and many people continue to use the wired headsets that came with the phone.
the absence of fm radio is the new samsung strategy and it is in favor of telecommunication companies ,people will have to pay money to listen to fm radio,and that strategy was obvious after samsung showed its radio app.
ccc, 21 Mar 2014all this over a FM radio. get over it.Yeah get over it. It is not a must in high end phone.

Did you ask the 90% what they are listening to? LOL!
Yes I agree radio gives informations and news around the world but it doesn't mean it has to be built in on the phone.
There are lots of option to listen to radio. Don't confine yourself to mobile phone. By depending on phone for radio, you are just making your world small.
Built in radio gives only local broadcast and local news.
Most of the times the reception is poor, only few stations give good signal.

Maybe there are some other reasons you can bring that wired headsets are not good.but if you go outside you see still most people,maybe more than 90% prefer and use that wired headphones , wether it's listening to music , or radio or....
The people who love radio,they would use wireless headset.Tell them don't use radio,because you should use wired headsets,and see wether they listen to you or not.
,And last for a mobile phone that it's goal is to connect you to the outer world , build in radio is a must have feature.it's an extra option just for those who do not use it year to year.but as I see,at least in place I live, people use it a lot.Its funny that a mobile phone does not have radio that all cheap MP3 players do have.
