Having no radio in phone is not a big issue and not a con.
[deleted post]some people need radio n their phone some people don't, we understand ur opinion of extra bluetooth headset and messy wirings whatsoever.. care for the others, don't be shellfish, it's better to have it n the phone

Maybe you enjoy listening to Chinese songs and news broadcast.
Don't change the topic to roaming data.
By the way as I mentioned earlier, free WiFi are everywhere so no need to use data roaming.

You are talking as if mobiles having FM radio is illegal. Stop thinking like that.
TheNeighbor, 10 Mar 2014What a lot of Sony fans don't realize is that the Z2 will ONLY come in a 16GB variant. Yeah, g... moreI am not a fan of any.
Samsung has very slight advantage of SoC speed.
S5 is usb3 and mhl2
Z2 is usb2 and mhl3
Z2 is 3200mah S5 is 2800mah
Both are bad designs one with aged and horrible than previous version(S4) another with an old looking huge bezel.And LG G PRO2 is far better looking but with slightly older SoC.
I am confused.Really confused.

Not only because of the 440ppi, but also brightness from 2 nits up to 500 nits(Wow), plus better color accuracy.
S5 also have the best Wi-Fi
Unique battery saving modes
Best dust proof. And even water resistant.
RueLeonheart, 10 Mar 2014Yes I can move on, but the fact that data bandwidth is still limited (at least in our country)... moreHere in UK bandwidth were I am is poor and lots of UK has no signal that's why I hate cloud..Until whole of UK is covered with fast internet connection all my data is on phone hence I use 64gig card.. Don't listen to radio so does not affect me but for those who need it like you it is a let down.
Either have to use a separate radio or go to another phone or use one of the older Galaxys,,I still use S2 because it has Music player instead of Sound Alive player which is why ive tried but not kept S3 and S4..Looks like S5 will be Sound Alive as well because numerous emails to Samsung say the Music player on Wave,,Galaxy s and Galaxy S2 was sacrificed for the new Sound Alive player..The S2 had the lot plus Super Amoled Plus screen..
S . SUDHAKAR, 11 Mar 2014Well said.May I ask a question?
Will you enjoy listening to Chinese songs broadcast on the built-in radio when you are a foreigner traveling to China?
Just answer yes or no.
J, 11 Mar 2014Z2 will do, it's a smartphoneGood for you!
But for me, I don't need built-in radio, I prefer the internet radio app because I can tune in to my country's FM radio and be updated with my country's news even if I am in foreign lands.
Built in radio cannot update me of my country's news when I travel in foreign country.

And bluetooth headset is better than the messy wired headset required to activate the phone's radio.
RueLeonheart, 10 Mar 2014Yes I can move on, but the fact that data bandwidth is still limited (at least in our country)... moreI agree, specialy in times of storm with power shortage... radio is a good source for news update and always present n ur phone without data plan
Tcool, 11 Mar 2014Then Bluetooth headset with FM radio is for you. Rather than insisting it to be in the phone. Yeah we better have other brand who understand most of people really need.
The Galaxy Note 3 is the best phone out there...
There is just no point in upgrading to the s5...

I will embrace cloud services and everything online as long as they make data connection unlimited and cheap. We are still not there. Maybe you guys has lighting fast connections that's why you can say this stuff, you can never understand us who have poor and limited connections.
Anonym, 10 Mar 2014Do you have a better and more educated guess or just like denying reality? The focus has sh... morePeople should obsolete things if there is a "better in every aspect" replacement for it. Yes internet radio is better than FM but FM still has uses. Unlike a floppy disk being replace by CD, CD is better in every aspect than floppy disk, it is cheaper and can contain more data. Internet radio requires expensive data plans that has monthly bandwidth limitations, and not all areas has good internet connection specially when you are travelling, you will loose what you are listening when the connection is lost.
