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.

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.

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.

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.

Anonymous, 11 Mar 2014S5 has much better display than S2.
Not only because of the 440ppi, but also brightness from ... moreDear Anonymous..
You comment seems to be from a die hard samsung fan..lol
You said Samsung has better display, Z2 has IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen which is far better Samsungs super amoled(which they claim to be the best and never proved,ever observed the blue tint in samsung display,the yellow usually seemed to be orange ;)),samsung boasts better viewing angles personaly i would never like to have a better angle view considering privacy,i would rather not prefer other person in a far angle read my personal message when on displayed.Now sadly Z2 has better veiwing angle.
Battery you said S5 still better when Z2 has 3200mah compared to 2800mah of S5, well what can I say about you a Samsung fan its 400mah difference is quite huge.I naver say a battery saving scheme in Samsung,SONy comes with Stamina mode.
Fans usually boost even they know that the product they are backing has so many drawbacks still they find a stupid ways to defend.. Have a reality check..Mr.Anonymous.

Having no radio in phone is not a big issue and not a con.
