You don't need a smartphone, what you need is a basic phone with FM radio to relieve your discomfort.

I do not want more discomfort with additional accessories to remedy the lack of FM Radio. If we want to update our phone and advance the technology we have better options with the LG G2, Xperia Z1 and Z2.
this the worst design smartphone i have ever seen.better to buy sony phones that are good looking and feels premium.
When comes to the matter of ram ram is 2gb expand to 4gb the selling rate increases now a days users want more ram but expect this all the speci is good sorry my bad english..

I've used the i9000 (S), i9300 (S3) and SM-9005 (Note 3) and then fly, just like any phones. Maybe yours were fakes. But this Galaxy S5's ratings don't replicate their performance as I said. Your just another Samsung hater right? So many...
if you want only radio then go for tata indicom or nokia 101 radio phone. why you go for such expensive phone. and don't post comment on such phones if you not used high end phones. not have knowledge of that phone.
Anonymous, 08 Mar 2014buying a extra bit of equipment so you can listen to radio IS making things more complicated.... moreCome on, you said you are "travelling the world" and you are from Australia. Don't tell me you are multi-lingual to the point that you enjoy listening the Chineese songs on your phone's radio when you travel to China. Or the Arabic songs when you travel to Middle East, or the Hindi songs when you are in India.
Bringing the headset with the messy wires to be use for the radio is more complicated than bringing a bluetooth headset with FM radio without the dangling wires from your phone.
You don't need data for the bluetooth headset with FM radio.
Sacrificed the water resistant, 4G LTE and other great stuffs like heart rate monitor, fingerprint scanner with the radio?
Radio which you can have in bluetooth headset with radio.
And I bet you got your S2 covered with beautiful cover so why bother with the ugly back when you can cover it?
What is the use of metal back if you will just cover it?
Metal will just add weight to the unit.
You don't need S5, what you need is a waterproof radio with metal back. LOL!

As you said, not all of us are the same, bust most people don't use "FM radio in smart phone" and majority wins. Stick with your Note 2 that needs the distracting wired headset for the radio to work.

It seems that you are more concerned about radio than the 4G LTE, you don't need a smartphone, buy a basic phone with radio like the Nokia Asha 310 that matches your budget!
our network sales manager- an old friend- said today -s5 sales should be ok for new customers postpay
Hi guys when S5 coming to US Sprint anyone know? I have S3 and I want to upgrade to S5.
Radio is not a big issue you can easily download a radio App from Play store and rock it on..
starry, 06 Mar 2014Wow,cant wait for this samsung S5 phone to come to nigeria.great oneMe too

As the name implies Swiss army knife, of course there should be a knife. ... morelook we're not all the same and some of us use the radio! data streaming is expensive and unreliable in my country. So your suggesting I carry around an extra device with me just to listen to radio? Uneccessary! I'll keep my s2 for now.
Tcool, 08 Mar 2014FM radio is just an option because no too many people are using it. If one wants FM radio, ... morebuying a extra bit of equipment so you can listen to radio IS making things more complicated. I'm travelling the world (have Been for 2 years) and the last thing I want is extra gear. They had a great radio in the s2 it can't be that hard to include and I've found the radio very useful when traveling. btw data in Australia where I'm from is very expensive. why pay to listen to a steamed radio when you can listen free if you had one in your phone? Still have my S2 and won't update yet but I love the water resistance. the other stuff like heart rate monitor and fingerprint scanner I'd happily swap for a radio. the other thing is the back of the S5 is ugly ugly ugly! The overall rounded corner shape is perfect compared to some with sharp corners which are impractical when you drop your phone. Samsung Add 64bit processor, radio, an extra gig of RAM and metal case and I'll buy it!
