I am seeing iphone haters in this forum and still iphone is the best smartphone in the world. And I had seen S4 haters in all the android forums and still it became the most sold android phone last year. And again seeing more S5 haters in all the android forums, yet it will become the most selling android phone. To me Samsung is more like Toyota and Honda, the best reliable android phone compared to all others I have tried. I have used S1, S2, S3, S4 and yet to have hands on S5. For sure will buy S5 after couple of months when the price gets settled. Samsung has simple design, has hardware home button, has removable battery, has micro sd card support, has the best battery life out of all android phones ( except G2). Htc may have best look, Sony/LG may have best innovation, but samsung is the worth every single $ paid by a mediocre person like me. Having tried HTC One, Sony Z Ultra, I consider Samsung as heaven. Again its my opinion and talking out loud here....
AnonD-197261, 26 Feb 2014Its time for consumers stop buying Samsung phones blindfolded only due to its brand awareness ... moreMind your words. All sony xperia and nokia lumia series mobiles do noy have user replaceable battery. Who will buy such shameless phones?.
utter waste ., it thefts some technology to migrate into it .,nothing innovative .
Its time for consumers stop buying Samsung phones blindfolded only due to its brand awareness rather quality.Decade ago ppl would buy Nokia blindly same followed by Sammy.So this time sammy would be not talking about the record breaking sales.Galaxy S2 was the only gem phone which sammy created to date,rest followed was all hype.
Comapared to S5 ..Sony Xperia Z2 is way ahead... Sony good job done..
I thnk samsung must learn somethng from sony
you must compare z2 vs s5
For what that processor? To eat all the battery?
Such an awfull design! It look's more like a galaxy ace with a bigger screen! Very disappointing phone! GO SONY XPERIA Z2!!!
Very disappointed. Samsung is losing the plot!!
Where is the FM-RDS radio? If you giving us 3 year old design, at least give us all the good stuff from 3 years ago, and then add the new stuff. HR monitor? I have a HR monitor app downloaded on my S3 and its a waste of time hopelessly in-accurate.. I love Android, but its time to move away from Samsung.
Never thought I would ever say that…
I read here many comments mostly disappointing but we saw S4 well sold in 2013 and I must say to you guys this will also the best selling phone in 2014 bcuz what Android OS need it has all powerful features and no need more RAM and more powerful CPU than S5 has. Above all Samsung will provide more special apps for S5 users like in past we saw in S3 and S4. I use many phones like iPhone BlackBerry LG HTC Sony Nokia Huawei but I really enjoy to use Samsung Galaxy Series. S5 is slightly powerful than S4. Like we saw iPhone 5 than iPhone 5S..
Every day is not Sunday, Sammy first makes a hype of all steel rounded ad then same idiot shape from zero to hundred all models. Yet remember 5yrs bck Tizen os which failed. I bet this model will hav a follow up. All people restrain.
this phone is very bad!!! i was very disappointed!!! because i think the s5 galaxy far better than galaxy s4. but i think both are the same. additional features such as heart rate sensors on galaxy s5 is rubbish, because the feature is not too useful. and features a fingerprint scanner is also just a mimic of iphone 5s!! and why samsung super amoled screen still use only full hd resolution?? when samsung has been curved screen technology (oled) resolution which have been ultra hd.!!! random access memory of galaxy s5 only 2gb , and internal memory only 16gb, much smaller than galaxy note 3!! what is the best of the galaxy s5?? what is surprising from galaxy s5??? nothing at all!!!! garbage!!! very disappointing!!
They should have just called it S4 9599, secondary camera still 2Mp, phone memory still 64Gb, speed still 42mbps. There is no improvement
