AnonD-159203, 26 Feb 2014A disappointment from Samsung with the S5.We thought Samsung would bring a innovation in terms... moreWell said.
S . SUDHAKAR, 26 Feb 2014The shameless google has imposed restrictions on SD card usage in android 4.4 onwards. Did any... moreI hope there soon will be phones with full Windows 8, just as there are 8 inch tablets with full Windows 8 today! Googles Android is unfortunatly becoming more and more restricted.
Samsung will make a "Fashion" version of S5 before summer with all the specs we hoped S5 would have, OIS and 3 gb ram and higher resolution screen and metal body and new design..., and that will be the new flagship model for Samsung! S5 will be a lot less expensive than S4 was when it was released!
A disappointment from Samsung with the S5.We thought Samsung would bring a innovation in terms of Technology yet all they did is to bring what we have seen from other manufacturers (apple, sony).At first I thought Samsung would surprise their customers with a innovation not seen from other manufacturers. But when I saw it being released. I felt disappointed by Samsung and not willing to shift either I stick with my Note2. Let's see how it will compete.S5 is a S4 advanced and that's the truth.
I don't care what people say about this phone. For me it is a nice phone with fastest processor available in the market I don't care about the design but I am little disappointed about 2gb RAM, it should be 3gb. But okk I don't care because 3gb ram can run lot of apps at same time but running lot of applications at same moment can eat up the whole battery power rapidly so I am satisfied with 2gb RAM and Some people mentioned that they want qHD screen in S5 but I want to ask them can their naked eyes even differentiate between HD & Full HD 5inch screen! Absolutely not so why they want qHD screen... Samsung has added pretty new features in S5 over S4 like 2.5ghz quad core processor, 16mp rear camera with 4k recording , 128gb memory card support, finger print touch id scanner, water and dust resistant, heart rate monitor, etc which are quite enough for upgrade over s4 so I like the phone and I am rating it 10, 10, 10,...
And those who are disappointed by this phone they should wait for NOTE 4....
What a crap.I prefer the Sony Z2 to this crap.Thats superior to it in every aspect.Z2 is the boss of this phone.

The shameless google has imposed restrictions on SD card usage in android 4.4 onwards. Did anyone know about this?. Search google with the keywords 'microsd card access problem in android 4.4'. Then you will come to know.
The restrictions (when the memory card is used in android 4.4 (or later) based mobiles* are :
> Cannot copy or move files and folders from internal memory to SD card.
> Cannot receive files to memory card (via WiFi or bluetooth)
> Can only download files (not via torrent softwares) to memory card.
> Cannot create a folder or sub folder in the SD card.
> Cannot copy or move files within the SD card.
> We can only read and format the SD card and set the storage for camera pictures and videos to SD card (not to specific folders, just in common).
> Usage of all file managers is restricted.
* means - not via card reader.
This phone have radio or not?
They said last year,they will use 64 bit processor? They not do that actually?
Fingerprint scanner on screen & view like that?
And last,why that gold models seems like brown color?
My oh my
AnonD-119121, 26 Feb 2014Will stick with my note 3 nothing much to upgrade over S5 too much of unnecessary sensors even... moreSmart stay is NOT useless, think a little bit about what I said.
After the waiting for s5 ,Samsung came out with abiger s4 and some heart beat mesurment app. Wow it might be the donky year in Asia.
I have zero interest in biometric measurements or making them available to the the highest bidder, whether corporative or governmental, I have zero interest for 64587 cores which process something which I don't know about behind my back or something which I don't need. I have zero interest for OS larger than a desktop OS (for some reason) carried in my pocket, which always sucks up at least half of memory (for some reason) no matter how much RAM there is.
I don't need a device which thinks for me or tracks and monitors me. I have a brain and character for that. I don't need 900 PPI screens, new OLEDs are already good enough, processing lower is already sufficient, fancy gimmicks and games are for kids and teenagers. I don't care about processing test scores once the device is free of annoying lag and newest ones are. I don't care whose mobile device is better, I exited puberty a while back and I don't need a mobile smart device to feel better about myself.
I want a thinner and lighter mobile device, around 6 mm and 100 grams which won't crack if it falls down or scratch easily, a device whose OS is not becoming new windows from desktop computers, device which is a practical tool and not a rattle or a sheep herder and a device which doesn't need pampering of any sort, especially a power outlet every freaking evening. Period.
Will stick with my note 3 nothing much to upgrade over S5 too much of unnecessary sensors even in note 3 I don't use air gesture air view and nfc or reading mode.. Smart stay, scroll, pause, multi Windows, s beam, group play, I don't use all this... I just got note 3 because of big screen and faster performance...... Not because of all these useless features for me
great specs. great phone. new galaxy
why no radio even in S5... has samsung got mad...?
definitely think that the s5 is moving more towards the style of iphones in the fact they are encorporating metal in to the handset, however i do believe the galaxy range will get bigger and better.
Tcool, 26 Feb 2014Useless radio wouldn't work without the messy headset wires.Radio needs the antenna and wired headset serves as one. Look on your cars roof, you will find an antenna too. FM works on much lower frequency then mobile phones do, and therefore requires a longer antenna. You don't have to use it if you don't want to, but it's still nice to have.
sorry Samsung i will change to i phone asi suffering used Galaxy S4 with plastic body
No innovation . Nexus 5 is better & economic
Sony it time to release Z1 ultra...we r waiting...
