An energy save mode if the battery reserve drops to 10%, continued 4G, water resistant, support for up to 128GB of SD card, but standard HD screen; standard RAM, standard 32-bit processor, Samsung standard Poly Carb case; but still no good retina scan authentication and not even FM radio back! Sorry, there is not enough here to make me want to rush out and recommit to a new phone contract.

Do you really understand the meaning of build quality? I must say SA... moreChanghong Z9 is better.
The Z9 has managed to fit a 5000mAh battery inside it.
Changhong Z9 should outlast any other smartphone in existence. At the same time, it reportedly has a thickness of just 9 millimeters, which is impressive considering what's tucked behind its back plate.
The rest of its hardware specs aren't that bad either. The Z9 comes with a 5.5-inch, 720p display, a quad-core MediaTek SoC running at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8MP main camera, and Android 4.2 out of the box.
To all SAMSUNG users :
Do you really understand the meaning of build quality? I must say SAMSUNG cheats openly to everyone in any device. Look at the build quality at S5 again its cheap plastic and now they will quote a price of may be 45k-50k INR. I was a SAMSUNG user earlier but shifted my gears to SONY bcoz of its build quality. SONY deserves to be best. And SAMSUNG has no better design so it copies SONY for ex: the smart watch concept and many other things as well. Guys its better if you take a wise decision by going to SONY or HTC etc. People only buy SAMSUNG coz of its brand name and waste money. Look at S4, it was a real time headache and now S5.

What I know is I am subscribing to 4G prepaid unlimited internet for three months and renew it afterwards. When I am within the city proper, my LTE mobile WiFi always receive 4G signal. When moving to the provinces it goes from 4G to 3G from time to time, but never to 2G. That is why I enjoy internet radio and TV without interruptions.
RueLeonheart, 11 Mar 2014Just google the problems on Z1 about durability. You are sacrificing durability on Z1 for good... moreIs this your new mission from Samesung to attack to Z2 ??? whatever it had problems,it has Bigger battery , Better camera with loseless zoom , NOT CHEAP MATERIALS , more ram , Great design , ... than S4.So it's much better than that.
As I searched , cracks on the screen are result of the shatterproof layer on Z1.So the front glass just gets cracked , not broken when it drops.So it was a good thing but now because of people complaints , they removed it in Z2 .
TheNeighbor, 11 Mar 2014Haha, sounds like you need the Galaxy Note 3.I already mentioned LG G PRO 2 sports an older SoC, same with Note 3 which is same as LG G2 and Z1(S800).
Your phones should not be so slim so as to last longer when playing, and should carry three or four micro-ships to avoid packing more than one phone on the pocket. you are creating thinner phones but at the same time they are growing larger and not fitting on the hands or pockects. Stop following Apple and satisfy the client with a multyfnctional and useful phone for the daily life. One thing is to build phones with less specs or more specs available on the earth accordind to one´s money, and the other thing is to create a simple and cheaper phone with a great camera or a complex, larger and expensive phone with a poor 2 megapixel camera, for exemple. it makes the client confusing because he wants to buy a great phone but they are all confusing. the problem is not the money. You are competing with Apple and we are suffering. If you dont agree,at least try to build phones accord to the professions: for engeneers, for nurses, for phisicians, for athlets, for swimmers for divers, for pilots,etc. Please, do us a favor. PAULO, FROM AFRICA.

For areas with weak coverage it goes down to no less than 3G.
Except the mountains, forest and desert. LOL!
I enjoy watching video/movie streaming and internet radio streaming without buffering problems 24/7.
Tendi, 11 Mar 2014Galaxy s3 using pentile amoled , but it is far better than s2 screen , more ppi and less blue ... moreIt was the Concert Hall setting with Rock or Classical music preset I loved on S2 type music player..Tried for hours to replicate it S3,S4 but to no avail that's why I emailed Samsung..The sound is not as good to me using Wolfson chip even though I was excited about it to begin with..The minute you use the equalisers in Custom setting the sound starts to disappear in volume where as old music player kept volume and high definition.
Anyhow its personnel preference with sound and even if S5 was million PPI I don't see the clarity as Super Amoled Plus.

Galaxy s3 and s4 has wolfson audio chip , so audio quality is far better than s2.
Tcool, 11 Mar 2014Maybe in your country. It's 2014 already. Still living in 2012? LOL!Do you guys have data cap in your data plans? I really don't understand the strict policy of this data capping. If I am using a phone that has full hd screen, then I should use it to view hd pics and video which has very large data size. If I will use Internet radio, bandwidth will also be used. Then they will give us very small data cap? They even said that normal use of data connection is browsing, emails and twitter. What? Then HD screen and worthless then if we can't even watch youtube in highest definition or upload big pictures on Facebook. My network operator limits me on 3Gb per month, then after that, I am downgraded to freaking 2G! That is frustrating! What can I do with 2G if internet radio requires 3G. And you guys are saying cloud is the new trend!!! Fix the damn network infrastructure first before making every freaking thing online.
Just google the problems on Z1 about durability. You are sacrificing durability on Z1 for good looks. There are reports of cracking of screen and bending of the phone when heating up. If you want a safe bet for now, then go with S5. If there are no longer reports of problems in Z2, then go for Z3 or Z4.
