Who needs radio in phone that is dependent to the wired headset?
RueLeonheart, 10 Mar 2014Yes 10% is majority versus 0.01% for heart-rate monitor. I don't know why Samsung favored hear... moreA fairly educated guess as to why FM radio is being left behind (whilst new sensors keep being added, some of which may only appeal to a very small number of people) is that FM (unlike all these others) requires *something* fairly large that acts as an antenna.
In the past they have used a *wired* external headset to double as a FM antenna, but people have now gone *wireless* and frown upon wired accessories.
It's because people now don't use wired headsets, that carrying an additional accessory to do FM radio (in the phone) is honestly the most stupid concepts one could imagine. Why? Because (for the same size of the antenna accessory) you could just carry a miniature stand-alone FM radio that would work regardless of your phone charge.
Why must people complicate things?
Yes, there was a time when you could merge the two things together. Now that time is gone and people have moved on, deal with it.
there are 3 big issues .. there is no FM radio , 2800 mah battery , and there is no sterio speakers
RueLeonheart, 10 Mar 2014Sorry but 99% of public Wifi here in our country can't even access the Google page. Like I sai... moreI think the s5 is going to flop, look I am a Galaxy fan, I gotten 2,3,and the 4. now the 3,and 4 look just alike and just 2mm different in size, now the 5 is the same old phone. and you advertize a whole different phone that looked great, and at the last minute you put out the same phone, no good the iphone will win out this time.
RueLeonheart, 10 Mar 2014Sorry but 99% of public Wifi here in our country can't even access the Google page. Like I sai... moreGood for you.
But for me, I am working in a different country where the language is different from my country that is why built-in FM radio is no use for me because I don't understand the broadcast.
Wherin Internet radio gives me option to choose different stations all over the world without using a wired headset and enjoying my Beats wireless.

Like I said, I like both FM radio and Internet radio, so when there is good wifi, I will use internet radio, but when there's no data connection, I will switch to FM.

Especially radio in mobile phone, coverage is very weak. You need to stretch the headset wires in order to get a better signal.
People here are really out if mind. What do u need in a smartphone u have everything. And above all samsung is a very trusted orm manufacturer..and its galaxy line of phones are best so millions and millions of sales of dem justify it..
Der shud a limit for expectation. S5 is on the verge of being another hit which vl sell in millions and outnumber any other oem devices put to gether.. Infact samsung devices are competing within der own breed..
After evrything is been put up in s5 now wat u ppl need?a jacuzzi n star trek space ship in s5?? There shud b a limit afterall its a phone for gods sake..
No matter what ppl hate or loath about it.. It vl just break records..
And dis is been happening and it vl keep happening..
They are the worlds greatest digital manufactures.. And they certsinly know how to run the show. Thy are in almost every field of electronic industry..so other products are in no match.. Its s good sign if other devices are lookin goid on paper or actually do.. But its all in a game.infact it was samsung who lead the way and set the standards high.. Wer other devices are now in path samsyng stood der way back in years.. And they are the oldest players in this field..
This is not boasting abiut samsung or a fan impression but dats wat the picture is..
There hardware n there decices are really good enuf but the only concern which we all have to be thinking about is that they are very slow on updating their older devices.. I understand so is the case with even other oem s.. But Having a samsung device.. We want update coz u know for sure even ur 2yr old handset is capable of running the latest android version.. While majoity of other oem devices are not.. Infact most of then hv already endef their update cycle and many dont even have enuf hardware support for it.. Now dats samsung and dats vision...
Even i hate it wen samsung holds back updates or gives it very late.. Call it a buisness tactics or somthing else but infact every other devices released at the same time of samsung gets updated after samsungs does theirs.. Now thats even.. Atleast al r in same boat..
Whatever ppl criticize watevr ppl brag about the brand.. Just by number of daily intrests and hits on the samsung devices and chart bursting sale numbers... Things speak for itself...

the galaxy s5 although it is slightly bigger than the s4 is still pocket friendly and hand friendly.
i used the xperia z before ,on web pages it looks beautiful but in real life u r holding a brick,not just that it has the worst battery life i have ever used in a mobile phone.
pd999, 10 Mar 2014Its like s4 plus not s5U sounding like a iphone user but be corrected iphone is now iclone
pd999, 10 Mar 2014Its like s4 plus not s5Samsung is the greatest in d world whomsoever disagrees doesnt have a clue about teck.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2014Most Smartphone Makers are using a cute and smart stylish design for there smartphones.. But ... moreI believe it is still appealing and glam for girls. My GF says it looks great. Perhaps the majority of people who hates the design are boys. The S5 and galaxy family always has a feminine design except the black ones. The Z2 has a more masculine look that's why it is more appealing with the male customers.
Tcool, 10 Mar 201410% is what compared to 90%?
Why do you insist for radio that wouldn't work... moreYes 10% is majority versus 0.01% for heart-rate monitor. I don't know why Samsung favored heart-monitor for FM radio. Plus, in remote areas, you wouldn't have good data connection anyway in the first place. Not all local radios have internet radio equivalent, for example, local news which is the main reason why I am using an FM radio every time I go to and from work.
Dude, I am not against internet radio. I want both internet radio and FM radio to be in the same phone so in case there is no data connection, I will use FM radio, in case no radio connection I will use Internet radio. You got it? It's called choice.
