Samsung S5 is using MSM8974AC while xperia Z2 is using the MSM8974AB chip. S5 has both the CPU and the GPU clockspeed higher than the Z2.
I live un South America where millions of people make use of public transportation. We like the last-generation phones and we listen to FM radio in our long daily trips, along with chatting and playing. We do have internet in phone but it is still way too expensive and the coverage is very limited. In conclusion, the FM radio is very important for us and it was one of the reasons by which I left the galaxy's since the S2. With a phone this category the absence of the FM radio is not warranted, and that also must spend more money to hear my favorite local stations.Remember that not all stations are online. FM radio also consumes very little battery.It is best to look at other brands better understand the needs of their users.
How come some people rates the phone performance and its not in the market yet???
Fung Cho Hama, 07 Mar 2014You all are mad complaining about S5 . I have buyed S5 it is the big phone so far. Earlier i... morePlus don't bullshit, s5 phones are just on pre order, how come you have bought it. You are cheating in the broad daylight.
Z2 has same UI as in Z1!! ?? Better know the product first , before you post it here..
And what is so innovative in Samsung?? same old copy stuff from apple (Finger print unlock).
And I don't see any major design change in any of Samsung galaxy line up ( same old cheap plastic).
Compare product quality of Apple, Sony and HTC .. you will notice the difference and I BET.
U get 11 gb for apps
I am using 64gbs microsd Card
Transfered all data games music and all
Battery last for 2days on moderate use it also has ultra battery saver
You all are mad complaining about S5 .
I have buyed S5 it is the big phone so far.
Earlier i had note 3 N9005 snapdragon version
S5 is twice faster than note 3.
Stop complaining about Ram It has 2gb out of will 1.87gb free.
I am having 600mb used and 1.2gb is free for application
This is superb phone
Looks of this phone are actually far better than Z2
Even z2 is having only 2.3 gb not 3 gb
Stop complaing about this superb phone no lags
High speed 4g runs like butter smooth !!!!
Z2 is a crap. Old design heavy to hold bad UI on screen button same features as on Z1
Only 3gb out of which 2.3 gb is usable
Buy S5 the new innovation!!!!!
[deleted post]What s5 is a plastic shit bar! Hmm, samsung is trying to decrease the weight of by using plastic. How ever in s5 you can more aluminum compared to s4 and z2 is a shit in front of s5, s5 has snapdragon 805 processor which technically serves 2.7ghz and it has gpu speed of 453mhz which 1.5 times greater than z2. Coming towards ram, yes s5 has 2GB so what, i am using note 3 where the os initially uses 0.9GB and when i play highend games it goes to 1.7GB but it has never crossed 2GB. And coming towards camera s5 has 16mp but the sensor is very good, literally it has the functionality of hdr cams and you can find much more things in it like airview, air gesture, finger print scan etc. Still if you are talking about z2 you are the dumest person.
[deleted post]If you do not like this, you can go to the Sony forum. Nobody will miss you. I am also disappointed, but why to fight?
really s5 is not looking good...too much price also.. any how it vl become a big flap
actually S5 has a power than Z2but Z2 is more attractive and with a 20.7 mp camera.I think i would go with Z2 as it would be cheaper.
lets all see when it releases as z1 was a head to head with note 3
AhmadjoinAlkubuni, 07 Mar 2014For all specs, I think Z2 is better than S5. XDIst reason samsung have kept to the REMOVABLE battery in all its phones
During a 2 yaer contract there maybe 5 or 6 times a simple battery pull will fix a problem, which the Z2 can't
2nd afaik only Samsung have settings to change the resolution up to the max resolution.
Say you just want a 3,5 8 even 10Mp photo which you can do ONLY on a Samsung
All other do not, Iphone 8Mp Z2 20Mp and the Lumia 1020 41Mp! ( which you can scaled down to 5Mp for facebook)
Lumias & iPhone do NOT have memory expansion so you run out of space qucicly or have to use the cloud
Tcool, 07 Mar 2014Because it is only an option. Latest models will no longer include the built in radio because ... moreOK then explain me or us why a 2013 model with nick name Galaxy music,the radio can work without any headphones attached? Cmon man Samsung has the higher technology to install a better radio or one we can use without headphones...why Samsung decided to remove a necessary (in some cases) item from their models? I don't know but its better in all cases to have a higher feature instead to be remove, even if some people don't use it
Why does Samsung always provide soap shaped handset? Now-a-days shape matters lot. Totally rubbish & ladies design...
Jezzy, 07 Mar 2014what kind of stupid aspect that S5 win ALL Z2?All
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2014maybe they have a plan to make another versions with radio,3gb ram ,20mp cam,3200mah battery o... moreSamsung plan is to put a digital radio which doesn't need a wired headset nor data plan to work.
