The specification indicates No FM Radio.
I thought that Samsung has learned from their earlier mistake in the Galaxy S4.
FM Radio have given Samsung addional score against its competitor. The Galaxy S3 have it. But they remove it from The Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Cat4.
This action has been a major turn off for many customer and cause them to choose LG G2 instead.
If the Galaxy S5 also does not have FM Radio then Samsung will get several points deducted in their competition in the smartphone market, as many of their existing customers will (or may have) move on and find other devices/brands.
FM Radio is really a must have feature for many people in many countries.
rkm, 18 Feb 2014Run for a Nokia 1608 who are crazy for FM Radio. I'm not even for an Android phone. Those who ... morehow dare you to compare between s5 and i phone
s5 is a technolygy reveloution do you knowwhat a 64 bit exynos ship is
this means 8 cores run at the same time and i think with 2.1 ghz not like a shity i phone that uses dual core 1.5 krait!!!
and s5 3 gigs of ram not like a dum apple that uses 1.5 gigs
grow up i phone people this steve jobs stealer pranks you and for one thing ios is based on unix
and android is based on linux and java and c++
so there is a hell lot of diffirence between them
am gona tell you why ios is faster on lower end specs because unix is based on lower dvm not like android
android system takes at least 1.2 ghz and 210 ram to be at least responding
samsung will be always the best
iphone is dead mac is dead to apple is a falure android was an open source by google and still google is not afraid that microsoft or apple use android bec google knows that wp devices and apple phone cannot use android if it was built from source but microsoft and apple knows that if it run on a phone like s5 or note 3 it will beat all of it devices
Vish, 19 Feb 2014specifications are same as fo s4.... oly thing change in screen size,ram,os version n camera..... moreand CPU, and Body, and colors, and fingerprint scanner and some more stuff which makes the difference bigger than Galaxy S4 and htc One had from each other, and that means a complete new phone to S4, I've sold the s4 that I had and am waiting for the S5 to arrive

Well that is completely personal, Note series has always been a follow up to S series, altough not the lesser of it
Just waiting for those AppleFannies to come trolling, since there is no more chance for an iphone to win on any category, exept being wrapped in shiny tinfoil, just for the Iphoners to swag about, AHHAHAHAH, IMPOSSIbly hilaRIOUS! XDXDXDXDXDDXDXDDXXDXDXDXDXDXDXD
The galaxy s2 was better than the iphone 4s and the iphone 6 already lost the battle even before it was released.
I really cannot understand why would you buy a piece of tinfoiled glass box instead of a real smartphone, that can actually do what a smartphone is supposed to; be a portable PC with integrated phone...
Yes there will be some still trying to argue about plastic vs tinfoil, but in the end the galaxy wins since;
1. You drop your iphone, you lose your phone, or have to use a broken piece of shit.
2. You drop your galaxy S 1/2/3/4/5, you lose nothing.
actually Note series is better comparing to S series only disadvantage in note series is big screen it is not comfortable to fit in the pocket
Bashar14, 15 Feb 2014Ok but after using note series should I switch to s series. .. means its ok... Or should I wa... moreThey are both very popular, though the S series is probably more popular if you compare the 2. Why does that matter though? Get the one that fits you better than how it fits everyone else. I like the larger screen, but some people want a smaller more manageable phone, so they pick the S series. Personally, I have had my Note 2 for a year and a half and it is still going strong, and I still love it, no reason to upgrade yet, so I'm waiting for the Note 4, rumored to be released August/September.
Eddy, 17 Feb 2014No radio in the S5. Why Sammy????Because not many people care about FM radio for Samsung to waste their time on putting in the S5. Most already use other apps for music like Pandora.
ajaykumarkatikam, 18 Feb 2014for 5inch screen 3000amh is not enoughI have no problems with the battery life on the larger 5.5 inch Note 2, with only a slightly bigger 3100mAh battery. With the improvements in processors I don't see any reason why 3000mAh won't be plenty. If you are that worried about battery life, just carry around a spare. Samsung sells the battery along with a separate charger. I do that with mine and I haven't had my phone plugged into the wall since.
Samsung has already made increased the capacity even though the battery will be the same size as the S4 battery. Any bigger and you will have a thicker, heavier phone.
it's not the same processor; S5 is coming with S805; don't you see it?
have u used the phone at all for you to say the battery is bad? S5 has got to be "DOPE"
specifications are same as fo s4.... oly thing change in screen size,ram,os version n camera............
I think s5 will have full hd display its too early for 2k sh.it n stuff
WTF!! Galaxy is the new i-phone apparently. Otherwise one cannot explain all these negative comments even without seeing the damn thing. Guys we are not talking religion or football here, its just a phone along with the rest of them... 20 years ago we had commodore 64 and were happy when 128 was coming out. Get real...
