Other than design, the s5 is the best all round phone on the market....do your rearearch. Best processor, amazing screen, amazing battery life, not a fingerprint magnet, 16mp cam which is a nice upgrade from the s4.....so why are people complaining? Because it looks similar to the s4? Lol its the galaxy series what the hell did you want it to look like lol. People just complain with no valid reason. I will buy this device.

I would've taken the extra GIG of RAM anyday
tooooooooooooooooooooooooo much expensive..if you want high specs, buy laptop..if you want high resolution camera, buy SLR..
again Samsung hardware is still superior to others. Last year they beat HTC One with better 600 Soc, this year they up one notch above Sony Z2 with a MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2014Wtf? Is it some kind of "thing"? Attack the popular kid? It happened to iPhone, now ... morethat is exactly what is going on.....if u visit the iphone page u will find the same haters complain..
look at the voting ...liars commented on the performance before the release of the phone!!??
What an ugly looking device. Samsung is really pushing it. Also I am not sure why Samsung is adding features, instead of focusing on stabilizing the current features. BAD UGLY DEVICE. By the way I own a note 3 and it does feel cheap when I compare ot to Sony, HTC, LG devices.
Wtf? Is it some kind of "thing"? Attack the popular kid? It happened to iPhone, now it's Samy's turn... :))
Roycer, 27 Feb 2014What are you guys complaining so much about S4. It has the most powerfull Snapdragon up to dat... moreBut the XZ2 has a better screen, better battery, better camera, and its totally waterproof. Come on, the GS5 has no chance against the XZ2
babao, 27 Feb 2014Am very disapointed that sam can make a poor phone like this, i was expecting much from the s5What's so poor about it? It's a modern flagship, after all, not some 700-Euro-with-small-battery-and-NSA-backdoor featurephone. It's a greater upgrade over the S4 than the Z2 over the Z1, and it's waterproof as well. Why is it that people think it is so bad, when companies like Sony make smaller upgrades, with poor cameras to boot.
AnonD-237024, 27 Feb 2014And the winner of the Worst Flagship of 2014 goes to... ...Apple, as usual. Runner-up was HTC, with its all-but-useless camera.
Yes i agree. the fingerprint sensor was a bad bad move becouse everyone will think they ripped of apple in wich they didnt really do.. long story but it has been a thing on android since a whiiile back.
The 801 snapdragon is a typical move. they come out with the best performing cpu on the market so everyone that makes the 800 snapdragon cpus become jealous and try beating it and there. samsung just pushed technology forward instead of going with the flow of the 800cpu
babao, 27 Feb 2014Am very disapointed that sam can make a poor phone like this, i was expecting much from the s5Well,thats the bigest problem of all you people...you are expecting too much from a fckn phone!!!! What do you want from it?! To drive you to work?! Take kids to school?! Make you a lunch,with low calories?! Wash your laundry and so on...?! And how is Xperia Z2 different than Z1?!?!??!? Thiner bezels??? Hahaaaaaa...you people need to talk to someone...
Lol I now realize most of the people who are posting bad comments about the galaxy s5 are not even users of samsung products, guess what why do you guys shut the hell up,because nothing you say can change most samsung user to switch to any other O.E.M, samsung smartphone's expecially the galaxy s and note line remain the most feature pack handsets you can get.
=NuclearM!ND=, 27 Feb 2014If you want to upgrade your Galaxy S4 to Galaxy S5, you only need to download the new Wallpape... moreya.. also download finger print scanner heart rate monitor and download software patch to change the hardware to in chipset to make it 801-snapdragon then also u need to download abd install 16mp lens with HDR n selective focus.. above all u need to download some sense into ur brain!!!!!
Never saw this coming:
Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 (64Bit core)
Black, White, Blue, "Gold"
AnonD-237024, 27 Feb 2014And the winner of the Worst Flagship of 2014 goes to... Nokia X Series
What are you guys complaining so much about S4. It has the most powerfull Snapdragon up to date the 801 and GPU etc.
It has a briliant display @ FullHD. Anything more than this is insane for 5.1 inch device, you cant notice any pixels at all. Period
It has SD Card Slot and removable battery. It is water resistant as the Xperia Z1 but without the ugly sharp corners and an old TFT dimm display. Wake up
