Hmm, where to start... First and foremost, I agree with the post above concerning the screen resolution. 1080p or FHD is by far quite enough for a mobile device with a 5"+ screen. I really don't see the benefits of having a 2K res on such a small screen, anyone who does - i really hope you ppl dont look at your phones with a magnifying glass -_- , I mean wtf? So, give us a break with those kind of comments pls... Thank you.
Next, the bezzels! They are quite dissapointing... Everyone, including myself, was expecting really thin bezzels like the ones on G2... But, i guess that IP67 certificate took it's toll. I guess that's the only reason why they didn't make thin bezzels. Just look at Sony phones, phew! Talking about fat bezzels all around.. Ram? 2 gigs should be enough for 99% of customers and i believe it really is. Although, it would've been nice to see 3Gb, if only for numbers sake.. Cpu, a small bump in Mhz and some other minor details, nothing to brag about really. But far from "non-important" stuff. I believe 2.5Ghz quad is like the 2 gigs of ram, in translation: quite enough for 99% of customers... Camera, it seems to be an upgrade, the only one really, if you look at the whole package objectivelly... But no point in speculation at this moment, we need to see some real life tests and samples to give an honest verdict... Design? Mehh.. Good ol' zamzung boring design, with that iritating phisical home button.. I'd really like to see a change in this area, something like 3 capacitive buttons with adjustable brightness and color so users can personalize their phones to their desires or personalities... Build quality. I don't mind the plastic that much, strictly speaking it's not exactly ordinary plastic, but anyway i'd like to see more Lumia-like poly-carb cases. If you ask me, that is the ultimate material for mobile devices till this day! Ppl who demand aluminium have little or no idea about Al and it's interaction with real-life objects and situations. I do, believe me (i work as a cnc machinist). Anyway, those phones end up in cases, so the precious metal doesn't get scratched, duhh... Build quality itself shoud be much better now, because of the IP67 obviously, so no squeeking or cracking of the battery lid like on my s3. That's good. Battery? Hmm, not really amazed here.. 2800mah just doesn't quite cut it in todays world. Not with a power-hungry phone with a 2.5Ghz quad, a bloated Rom and a bunch od sensors working all the time. I believe this is the only area where big companies like Sammy should leap forward and try to use those new technologies which btw are available. No "power-saving mode" will ever replace the capacity in a battery. I simply want a great user experience from the moment i unplug my charged phone till that last 5%. But i want that feeling to last at least 2 days. Srry for this huge post guys, i just had to :)
wtf, no fm radio again? samsung, u didnt listen to your customers. Such a shame!
Fingerprint on home button ? %100 copy from 5S ,,,i wants fingerprint on screen,,physical keys at this time ?? must be unframed design, without buttons,,i hate s5,,sure will never buy,,
S5 its like "Galaxy J"
The design it's SO FLOP Samsung!!!! You better improve your design first then make a smartphone...
Fully piece of crap...
The 7-month old LG G2 has a 5.2 inch screen,7% larger capacity battery, optical image stabilization and the same Snapdragon 800 chipset, plus FM Radio and infrared remote. And all this while being 4mm shorter and 2mm narrower.
Galaxy S5 is dead on arrival, unfortunately.
Why do I need water proofing ? To check a marketing box ? How many times per day do I use this "feature" that increases the phone size and weight every time I handle it ?
Its funy, and very poor,
This is 99% the same as galaxy s4,
and 80% the same as my old Galaxy S3 I9305 LTE
with 2gb ram memory, phone from 2012 year !
I like Samsung but galaxy S5 together with galaxy S5
is VERY BAD, and very simular with Galaxy S3 I9305 with 2gb ram memory.

i own a s4 but samsung this time s5 sucks bye, bye samsung welcome sony xperia z2

Damn samsung :( you're going the wrong way, thumbs down.
Ugly not buying
yeah then you can buy a rubber case to put on it huh?
Yea, sooner some people jump ship to Sony and Lg the better, so we can then hear in 3 months time how great their phones are going, much like HTC. If Samsung came out with a phone that wiped ya ass, and made Cappacino people would still say it lacked innovation. Its a phone peoples, and until u have held one in ya hands then those who are so readily wanting to bag the crap outta it should just shut up. I for one will get one, and it will be 12 months before any other fone even comes close to the S5. Nothing worse than couch critics.
This phone is not Samsung Galaxy S5 ! It is Samsung Galaxy S4 Active 2 !
Yes does not have 3GB of ram and 2K display but samsung use some feature for real life.best battery power with Ultra Power Saving mode.if your phone has 10% battery charge and if using Ultra power saving mode your phone still standby for 24 hours and its the best for person that always in travel.
Fit software in best range.
0.3 sec Auto focus is the best and first for smartphones.
only the body and back cover is not so good.
I do not understand how a big company can degrade a product... The Galaxy S3 back is perfectly easy do clean. The Note 3 and S5 back is hard to clean. :(
Not impressed got the S4 and will never from now buy another samsung handset again seriously they can get lost
AnonD-196288, 24 Feb 2014Had an s3 and s4 but not planning to get an s5 for several reasons, I think that samsung is s... morenothing and note 4, when nothing would be better than a 3 note, how are going to s5, lack of innovation, it is time to move to LG and Sony
i don't know why to upgrade from s4 to s5...is the same
