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
they start the year with this crap phone???? oh come on shamesung!!! im an avid fan of you!!! this is a very big disappointment part on your dumbpany!!! :-@
ka, 25 Feb 2014Sony Z2 is my next phone not S5 looks cheapssssss Yup dear I'm agree with u...Sony Z2 is a rival of S5.This time Samsung hs lauched its old type designed phn..
I think this may be a worst phn of the year 2014.Why Samsung can't change its phn body lukin jst like as previous S4.
im just glad they kept with 1080p screen. It just makes no sense to keep upgrading the resolution every time with no changes to the performance. S4 have some performance problems and this seems to not lag at all, from 1.9ghz to 2.5 its a lot of speed. they should've increased ram to 3gb and it would be ok
I have galaxy s4 , and it lags alot .. I didn't like galaxy s5 because neither does the design look good nor the specs are good .. it is really bad phone .. xperia z2 is better
Still hoping Samsung says it's just a joke... :( I'm keeping my S4 for the year... :(
samsung budda, 25 Feb 2014I'm Disappointed. :( Pathetic Configuration. Not impressed at all... I'm using Note 3 and S4. ... moreI honestly think it's a minor boost and most costumers will be satisfied, the water resistant is very useful and if they fixed the heating issue which was my only complaint, i am the happiest man alive + It supports 3840 x 2160 (UHD) video recording, what more do you expect?
Dunno what is happening to Samsung now..
Samsung used to have nicer & better design in early years especially Samsung Wave & Wave 2.. but i waited from Galaxy S till S5, not much different (in design) i can see.. only keep on upgrading the internal hardware.. disappointed again..
And the back cover of Note 3 is far away much better looking.. back cover of S5 looks ugly.. very ugly..
AnonD-237086, 24 Feb 2014Full of trolls. S5 with 2K screen and poly alloy case and 3 GHz quad core 64 bit 3 gig ram ,... moreIts not 3gb of ram its 2gb of ram read it and weep, but still not a big deal.
I'm Disappointed. :( Pathetic Configuration. Not impressed at all... I'm using Note 3 and S4. This is just an upgrade to S4. No way... First time I'm not impressed by Samsung... Come on Samsung... where is 4k Display...Where is 3gb RAM...
Only Waterproof option is made me little happy... everything.. I'll only look for Note 4 now... :)
