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
AnonD-182953, 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.
Just Me, 25 Feb 2014This is the biggest disappointment! Thanks Samsung for the Galaxy S4.5. They spoke of changing... moreThey put the heart monitor sensor for those who will buy it and after will find that every other brand have a better choice.
GS5... Big deception! Where is the 3GB-RAM? Where is the aluminum body (optional)? Where is the 4k display? Too bad!!
Samsung design team should get into basics and consider user perception and feedback in order to get back into the race. Whats the use if every phone from Samsung look like siblings.
This is the biggest disappointment! Thanks Samsung for the Galaxy S4.5. They spoke of changing the design because the S3 n S4 look alike and it hurt the sale. Yet, you release the exact same design.I have the S3 and was looking forward to the "new" flagship. Now I'm looking for other options. Obviously you didn't learn your lesson with the S4. Heart monitor what a joke!!!!
So what defrint s4 ... same style no radio ...what s thes at least ram 3gb .... i have s4 but some times i need for fm music ..no radio ... same style ...
im a big fan of samsung, and like most people excited to see the next gen of the range. but this.. this is just ugly as hell.
oh well, theres always next year.
Old design and look. Poor Samsung I lost confident with you while you knox and keep old style design. Hope this will be the next model correction.
Why no radio there .... it must be radio at least for fm music.... some times ... no way
the design of this phone is so bad and its not good for the samsung . I dont know where is the security touch pad . I think the security touch pad is like the laptops ?
SGS5 doesn't need 3GB RAM bcuz KitKat Android OS support very well 2GB RAM even 1GB RAM. SGN3 has 3GB RAM and it is different line of series..
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2014outstanding copycat.LOL! All company copying Others Idea, i am not a samsung fan but if water proof is good and customer want w-proof phones,well samsung must be produce! u remember HTC phones Called i-Mate? yeah i-Phone is copying their Name for Whole Smartphones Serries, Look On iOS 7, it's copyng from Android,Windows Phone. i think S5 is the best, All in One! Beautifull, Water proof and anything u want and u need.
What the Hell samsung? A NANO SIM !!! i'll have to by another SIM Jacket! one to change Nano to Micro and another to change Micro to Mini. why can't they all have one standard SIM size???
