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.
kobbycarson, 24 Feb 2014note 3 has 3gb ram yea fair point, but then again do we need 3 gig anyway?? dunno, until I use it I quess we just have to wait. Have u got the note?
Why make it taller, it just fit in the pocket as is... keep following these stupid trends of bigger phones....
128 Gig Micro Sd card is double any other phone is capable off. Usb3. Bang and Olufsen sound chip. LOL, and people say its not that much better, gee, id hate to see and hear what some people consider quality.
now i m sure samsung is carbon paper in past samsung used to copy nokia now iphone lol
hano, 24 Feb 2014i want to know which is better S5 or note 3 ??note 3 has 3gb ram
This fone has marked the beginning of the DOWNFALL of Samsung in the mobile phone arena. Very cheap plasticky looking phone with nothing great in specs as compared to S4. I have S4 and there seems to be no reason to shift from S4 to S5. Samsung is just a copy cat of Apple.
Was expecting atleast 4000mah battery, 4GB of RAM, a Dual Sim Version as well, may be a full qwerty sliding keyboard verion to stand out of the crowd, aluminium unibody construction / genuine leather back etc etc. But there is nothing which makes it a good buy.
