If you are looking for FM radio android phone you can buy the beautiful monster ( LG G2 ) , you will only lose some features that do not feel so important such as lack of external SD card , non-removable battery and powerful screen that just lacks ppi denisty as S5 ... I had this phone and i can tell everyone honestly LG had kicked samsung's best technology out .. I delivered LG's message telling that you do not need physical buttos in you android device to use just knock on and it wakes up i think it is more comfortable than finger print sensor ( for me ) ...
I used S4 and iphone 5 but I don't even look at then while holding my G2

Sammy_boy, 21 Feb 2014Do u think people will buy such expensive feature loaded phone for just to listen FM radio? Lo... moreI own Samsung SGH F700 and Galaxy S3. My wife has Galaxy S2. All these have FM Radio device built-in. Recently, my wife replaced her S2 to S4 via an upgrade option from her service provider (no need to mention which carrier). She normally listen FM Radios when cooking.
Free, no need to pay with the internet data.
She was disappointed when she found out that her new mobile does not have the FM Radio.
She did not research the spec before because she never thought any producer would take features out.
Now, my S3 upgrade time is approaching, I am researching almost daily, to make sure that my next purchase will not disappoint me. If S5 does not have it then my next preference will be LG G3.
Well, remember Windows 8? Taking out features always come out worst compared to just keeping it.
growler, 21 Feb 2014I do buy these phones, I have a S3, I skipped the S4 because the lack of radio and I will skip... moresimply just down load an app for the google play that has FM radio and listen to the radio as much as you want
Sammy_boy, 21 Feb 2014Do u think people will buy such expensive feature loaded phone for just to listen FM radio? Lo... morethat's exactly the reason , why I did not go for S4.
Would be very stupid , if they didn't include FM radio

I would choose any other option rather than any phone without radio.

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
