This new Galaxy S5 inbuilt memory & screen ppi density is much below our expectation.
Better go for xperia Z1 compact
wait for the upcoming Lumia 930.
I have S4. And it's better looking than this. And also is thinner and lighter. C'mon Samsung, what are you doing? Give me one good reason to sell my S4 and buy this ugly phone. One good reason. This phone is bigger, heavier, expensive, and by my opinion step back in design. Specifications aren't amazing too. It's just little improved old Soc (snap 600 in S4). Nowadays even chinese competition makes goodlooking phones, thin and light with 5" screen and fast quad/octa-core (and they are much cheaper). And without KNOX! I am very disappointed with this phone.
New features are...OK! Not bad! But....the design is sooo much disapointing..:( In this era of design masters you can not permit a design like this. Not stylish at all, nothing new and impresive, nothing futuristic! The S4 has better design. I can not beleve how you made this mistake. So, Apple, now it's time for you to beat!
Put FM radio on in lower end model.. all high end model no radio.. I know there's a lot of radio apps.. but unfortunately my favourite channels are not available in my country.. furthermore FM radio no need to use data.. why on earth you Samsung want us to waste our data just to listen to radio? Please answer. I respect some other brands like HTC & LG still maintain radio in their high end models.. I still like Samsung as your hp are user friendly and ve good support in my country.. but this small little thing (radio) is a big thumb down. What are you trying to do? Losing your loyal customers?
igorr, 25 Feb 2014Where is the 1. 64 bit CPU 2. display resolution 2k 3. resolution video 4k 4. 3200 mah... moreNo Exynos version,heavier,bigger your supposed to progress with your next model but my biggest bugbear is it still looks the rudy same.They changed back but I look at the front of a phone not the back..
Expected a lot more only camera got upgraded I think Lumia Icon for the first time beats Android with ages old Touchwiz Snapdragon 800 LG and Song Z2 even Z1 are better not forget other Chinese boys like Huawei and ZTE even locally made like voice xtreme 5 beats quite handsomely , wish Nokia on X lines produced better specs anyways still it's an upgrade over S3 but quite even with S4 , I am sticking to my iPhone if switched will go to either Sony Z1 or Z2 or Icon sorry Sammy you lost this time lets see what hTC and Apple comes with, waiting game like it is said All good things for those who wait ..,,

I'm totally disappointed
Wow !!! Well done samsung!!! They concentrated on the built quality. With excellent specs. Haters gonna hate. I will buy this phone.
Absolute disgrace of a phone. Thick bezels, plastic body, lower ppi compared to s4. Horrible icons . Epic fail. Seems like a downgrade compared to s4. Where is the metal body? The 2k screen? The all singing and dancing technology ? The edge to edge display ? This is 2014 and samsung have just released another heap of plastic sh*t. Very dissapointed in samsung. This phone seems like the end of all galaxys. Goodnight samsung hello apple and htc
Why is it so hard for samsung to put the FM radio? I ll stick to my SIII.. but I ve to live with it's 1GB RAM.. but at least not power hungry.
Since when is a bigger phone a new model?!
Maybe someone at Samy reads this. Here's what I expected:
Same size as S4, both phone and screen, maybe at about 6, 5 mm thick, 16mp camera, UHD screen, On-Screen fingerprint reader (Like Moto had about 3 years ago!!!) No one wants to swipe... :( AND FULLY WORKING FEATURES!!! SPEND MORE TIME MAKING THE USEFULL ONES YOU HAVE WORK!!! Smart Rotation for example. I don't give a sh* about my heartrate... :|
1. Heart rate sensor = maybe, if a 70 year-old man wants to prepare for his death in the near future.
2. Fingerprint sensor = you won't be able to unlock the phone in any other way but swiping your registered finger only.
3. 2GB RAM.....seriously?!
4. IP67 = thumbs up for this one, people will love to call their friends while taking a shower.
And by the way, this was meant to be the next flagship for the most picky people (like me), who would not care about the price if they knew what they are paying for. I am totally disappointed, I guess i will be forced to buy myself the Sony Z2 (unfortunately...)
i have the note 3 and when i move from a phone to another i expected to better at least galaxy s4 should have 3gb of ram 64 bit proc... but it the same crap i only liked one think about s5 the water proof and that is all that the only thing i mean come on the degsine is even worse that s4
