Sam Austin. J, 26 Feb 2016I doubt that you have bought a duplicate..Everything else is implying it's genuine- even AnTuTu score is above 50000, so I doubt it's fake.
Everything about this phone is better than my Samsung Galaxy SIII mini.
its my first time to buy a samsung product ...the first time i bought the samsung S5 because of the hearsay that samsung camera is better than iphone....but the truth is samsung mobile is not a user friendly phone...its software is unstable...beware of their update cause it will cause your phone to corrupt and the problem will start...if you brought it for repair they will say that you download a program that makes your phone corrupt even though it is their software that is unstable... eventhough it says 2 year warranty they will say that it is not covered by the warranty...so if you think of buying a samsung product..think twice...as for me i will never ever buy any samsung product...warranty is not good and so is the customer service...
I'm facing serious problem my mobile is not charging well it takes up to 6 to 8 hrs to become full. I brought it 6m back am facing this problem since 2 week's frnss tell me what to do now... am using original charger and I removed my sd card also but charger was good enough for other people to charge their mobiles.
S5 has a better battery and a batter camera when compared to z3. But z3 looks more premium.. Performance wise both are more or less same.. Both touch wiz of Samsung and timescape of Sony are heavy skins. So they will be a little sluggish compared to moto or nexus devices with same hardware. And one most important thing- z3 -gets hot really hot.. 5 mins of gaming takes it above 45°
sam, 22 Feb 2016in the specification it say s5 is 4g support . but in my phone ( s5 ) it does'nt support . i ... moreOnly snapdragon version of s5 support 4g. In India only exynos variant is available.. So if u r owning the exynos variant very sorry u can't connect to 4g!!
hi, in my s5, i am getting black dots on camera pics, charging is also slow, sometime not recognizing own charger, but will connect to laptop or desktop.
need assistance here.
but for that money we can get a good laptop comp or nice tv with 102 cm screen
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2016Z3 for sure. Better with all aspects. Premium look and feel, more powerful, realistic camera,... moreyes z3 for not sure!i had z3 and after 2 months the back panel just started to peel,and then i had 2 white spots on the display..and then the vibration stopped to work,and this is not only to me,google it to see,so don't say xperia is better..
Wolf, 22 Feb 2016I bought a used 4G version 3 days ago, and so far, I am not that impressed with it as I though... moreflash some custom rom and then feel the difference i prefer bliss 6.0.1 with custom kernel.
kaoutar, 21 Feb 2016Should I buy s5 or sony Z3 ..help please i need ur opinionsZ3 for sure. Better with all aspects.
Premium look and feel, more powerful, realistic camera, longer battery life, ps4 remote play...
shirou, 22 Feb 2016Of course z3! Best for gaming . Best battery life and better than touchwiz samsung.no one cares dude... =P
in the specification it say s5 is 4g support . but in my phone ( s5 ) it does'nt support . i have only 2g and 3g . why not 4g . why do samsung care have to do that . its really sad.
I bought a used 4G version 3 days ago, and so far, I am not that impressed with it as I thought I would be. This is my first premium android phone, and from what I heard, S5 should be the best option for this price range.
I noticed that the battery runs out pretty quick with medium use of the phone. But that's not that big issue as the CAMERA! One of the main reasons why I choose the S5 is because I heard it has one of the best cameras around.
The pictures I took were kind of blurry, dark (compared to very good pics that LG G2 is making in low light- the S5 pics were pretty dark and grained, even the night detection and HDR mode aren't of much help!). I don't know is it a problem with this device or all Galaxy S5 users are experiencing this problem??!
The second problem with the camera occurs when I download camera EFFECTS (ex. UCam:Fresh Filter, or any other filter). When I try to apply it, I get Warning: MediaServer failed. Camera needs restart. ....and then camera crashes!! So, I can't use any of downloadable effects! Does anyone have any idea what is going on?
I have Android 5.0, if that could be a potential cause of bugs.
