Had an s3 and s4 but not planning to get an s5 for several reasons, I think that samsung is starting to copy the path of iphone by not caring about specifications instead they care about Features.
1.The phone screen is not 2k & ppi is lower than the s4 and only 0.1 inch larger, the s5 size is to big for that.
2. No image stabilization
3. 32 bit snapdragon800 ( that I have on my note 3 )
4. The heart rate sensor is useless on a mobile phone, it is useful on wrist bands and watches ( imagine your self Riding a bike or jogging and Keeping your phone in your hands.
5. Who of us will use LTE data and Wi-Fi at the same time honestly ? 0.1%
6. 2800mah battery which is 7% better than s4 but lets not forget 0.1 inch larger screen which needs 2% more percent so that's a 5% improvement in battery life only.
This is why am not going to get s5, I think I will wait for the note 4.
I think the s5 will be nice to people who have old phones and need a change not for those who change their phone every year, things that I love about S5 are:
New colors, nice camera with slow motion and quick focus, a very good thinking of making the phone water proof, making the phone brighter on sun light and dimmer at night is a Useful Feature.
This was not expected poor design & will not stand out from phone crowd. Galaxy S4 and Note 3 design wise still better.
On the other hand some features seems to be good but nothing that special apart from Heart-rate monitor.
Thanks Samsung but I'd be looking out for Galaxy S6 and Note 4
Hahahahaaa Samsung such fail with their Exynos ''bullcandy''.It's a good thing they're back to Qualcomm.Heart rate is useless
samsung is far behind of Sony..
Sony Xperia Z2 is much better than galaxy S5.
its Camera Primary 20.7 mpx and memory 3 GB RAM..
Wow !!! Well done samsung!!! They concentrated on the built quality. With excellent specs. Haters gonna hate. I will buy this phone.
Totally crap.No FM radio,ugly and cheap materials.
Sony Xperia Z2 is much better than this crap with much more beautiful design , better camera , stereo speakers , and smooth & clean UI.
Sony Xperia Z2 is the best phone of 2014.
I expected for a new,a better Galaxy and this one is the worst Galaxy I can describe. I expected for the case to move to one for aluminium but.. plastic. It hasn't got much more than Galaxy S4,who is the best Galaxy I can say.
no fm radio, no money from my pocket on this. Radio is a must when you are travelling outside your country. Chinese manufacturers also include Difital TV tuners in their phones and this would be a nice add.
the design and body are old and non attractive! but about software and programs running,why s5 has lower score in antutu against htc M8? s5 has more clocked cpu,16 mpix camera .... but I saw s5 got 35666 and htc M8 earn 36532 with lower hardware! Samsung only bamboozle customers with sensors and increasing numbers!!!! there is no quality in Samsung.
I only hope they will not release 16GB version of the S5 cause it was a horrible mistake doing so with the S4 (out of the box and even after lots of tweaks and cleaning, users cannot install more than two or three big games - no matter if you got 64GB microSD card).
what is the wallpaper that samsung galaxy s5 used on the lock screen
Maybe Samsung was so busy with copying Apple and Sony that they didn't noticed other things.
Sony Xperia Z2 is much better than this crap with more RAM , FM radio ,better design and build quality and Stereo speakers.,camera,...I think Z2 is the best smartphone of 2014.
