Friends, I attended the MWC in Barcelona. I am a Iphone5s owner but after the show I have been completely converted by the SAMSUNG GALAXY S5. As a power user the S5 blows always the 5s. I am also so sick of all the proprietary bullsh-t from Apple. After hands own with the S5 it is a total dream to use and hold. Forget all the darn BS comment on no metal body etc. It just totally out powers the Iphone5s. I also believe most of the people commenting here no nothing about engineering and GSM specifications other than sitting on their couch eating Twinkies. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is truely the best poweruser phone made to date! HANDSDOWN
Terrible lousy phone
I rather get the HTC M8
This phone no hide its useless mono speaker at the back unlike HTC M8 which features dual frontal stereo speakers. Still using cheap bandaid plastics while HTC already went full metal unibody.
Moreover, this phone has thick bezels and not to mention tons of bloatwares which takes up more than 50% of its 16GB internal storage. What the heck is that Kids Mode bloatware on this silly phone?
5.1" with only lousy 2800 mAH, which year are we living at now? good luck with your Screen On Time.
Overall, I will give this phone 2/10.
Once Samsung will never return again.
I will aim the HTC M8 which is much superior and much more innovative.
T-Mobile crosses 100K per-registrations for the Galaxy S5 in two days
Apple: Dear Samsung, please consider fabricating for us a quad core chip so that we may be in tune for year 2008, as of now we are still in year 2005.
Apple: Dear LG, please consider selling us 720 pixel lcd, because as of now even India has 720 pixel as minimum, and yet we are stuck up with 640 pixel era of year 2000.
Apple: Dear Toshiba, when will you be able to sell us random access memory chips at least 1.5gb. As of now we are stuck with Samsung 1gb ram and supplies are running low because Samsung is supplying these chips to phone companies in India.
Apple: Dear Android, will you be able to let us borrow more of your designs. Please Android, we are already being left behind by about two decades.
Apple: Dear Rio Tinto, we are appealing to your good self to sell us aluminum to build our cases, because as of now, we are stuck with recycled die cast metal painted with aluminum paint to build them.
Apple: Dear apple troll, ante the media hype, keep up the good work.
So what's the big deal? If you don't like it, then don't buy it. After all those Samsung haters are the people who can't buy any phone for that matter HA HA HA HA.
s5 -excellent phone on all counts - evolutionary -though not revolutionary - for those who CAN afford it . SOURGRAPES for some .
Another Samsung phone in the same familiar tacky thin plastic casing they don't take into consideration the customer who is paying down a lot of cash has the same looking phone as a cheap circa Samsung 2008 phone. This may as well be a note 4 without the stylisI would rather have a iPhone 4 than a s5 that says a lot about look and feel of tech today. I don't need a quad core 2.5ghz no applications on phones right now or for another 2 years will support it.
The back cover sud have been like the one on note3 .its wud have increased the design ratings to atleast .7.7 one like note3 ....this dotted back cover looks like dotted c**dom..lol.samsung plz change it asap..if ur looking out for hugh sales.
omar, 28 Feb 2014Without raido, I will never buy this phone. I don't wanna hear someone say download radio ... moreWhat country your from.?.In india listening to RADIO now a days is itself a big JOKE...LOL...all day r.j's chattar patter and then lots of ads..on top of that no good quality audio...thats why its better to listen to music installed on sd card..i am also note2 user and do not use radio at all.
And the rumors are to blame.... Fone's still gr8.... Its a galaxy....
Honestly... Ah waz dissappointed @ 1st.... Buh WTH.... This phone is still awesome.... So what they used an old design.... Nokia phones hv looked d same to me since N9, Sony has been using same designs.... Z1 and Z2 for example.... Just saw some recent benchmarks on the gsmarena blog wer d galaxy S5 is busy kicking butt.... In fact... Am buying this phone.... Believe d galaxy'll still b gr8 diz year.... Daz all...
