Well the design does look cheap im an htc but i can say these are great specs aside from the display i dont get it why people are hating this phone the processor is better than z2 the display is the same as z2
the z2 does have its pros over s5 such as the camera and a 3gb of ram but other than this they are quite the same
and for the people who are saying the design is the same as the s4 and that z2 is better looking, well the z2 is better looking but how does it differ from the z1
S5 -has surely been a major disappointment for most worldwide - fell very short of expectations in all fields - only minor incremental compared to S4.. but still good for NEW customers or those upgrading from likes of S3 n similars .. no rush of blood to head for S4 owners though .. simply wait for APPLE 6/google 6 / both due nov 2014 0r samsung s6 ? april 2015 ..LIME PIE would be nice ..
Big disipointment!looks like a chinese mobile and there is no new thing in s5 and very ugly and cheap design
samsung is just changing dimensions but not design...one more crap by samsung...it is a waste of money to invest on samsung...neither quality is best nor service is best..they take fone in service center and just keep it for 15 days and give it back...nokia have best quality and service...nokia please wake up...

is nothing new about samsung galaxy S... morei read the specification but unlike u i found a lot of improvements over the gs4,faster processor ,heart rate sensor,water and dust resistant,bigger battery,16 MP camera,finger scanner,sd card up to 128G,usb 3 port......... etc
s v expected more from samsung features in ph k but the size and model is very very worst
Good phone more than galaxy 4 .. And 2500 MHz prosessor and 16 mp camera and beautiful body and beautiful colors and pixel of body very nice ... I like galaxy s5 ..
I am big Samsung fan but I am too depressed with pathetic design made by Korean designers....,it looks too ugly and cheap...there is no premium fell which came once you grip phones like Note 3, iPhone 5, Blackberry Z30.
spec's are ok but par below Galaxy 5 expectations.
- it surely be a failure from Samsung Camp.
this is the time to think abt. differentiation in design changes in premium segment and low segment phones for Samsung.
What a disappointment..
Samsung should learn to bring new design..
Somebody tell them desing and UI is boring now...
Screen size of S5 should be 6.3 inch like Mega :D LOL. S3 always awesome :)
we were expecting 4GB Ram... coz 3GB ram is there in galaxy j... and we were expecting aluminium body and minimum of 32 and 64 Gb storage. Not the 16 Gb useless
Why are they joining Pantech in ruining Android experience by placing the back button on the wrong side?
Samsung Galaxy S5 looks like something that was made buy Apple,greedy and lazy
im a big samsung fan. and like all sammy fans i was excited to see the next gen of the line. but this,, this is disgusting. such a horrible design.
oh well, guess theres always next year.
based on the specifications provided by gsm arena there
is nothing new about samsung galaxy S5 its all the same
please go for sony htc or other manufacturers they have better options this is my personal opinion
salman abbas, 25 Feb 2014Its S to the 5th generation and honestly speaking that I'm happy with it over all. Screen size... moreS5 is ugly, it looks like some cheap chinese copy years ago. Amoled has good black and vibrant colors, but white isn't white on that screen! Further, 2GB ram isn't bad and Snap 800 is fast, but for OVER 600 BUCKS we expected little more, NOT JUST an upgrade from S4! Nowadays even Chinese companies making thin, light-weight phones with big IPS display, good cameras and fast enough for everyday use (just check good iNew V3 - which is my second phone, it costs under 190 $!). BTW, GSM - make review of that nice phone, thank you.
But here we have massive S5 phone which you can't hold and use with one hand, much bigger and heavier than S4. With the practically same display and somewhat upgraded video recording functionality. Also I do not like fingerprint reader, and certainly do not need KNOX. Companies must be aware that customers need free phones, with open possibility to change system parameters, like in PC Windows. We are not all so stupid.
