Incremental improvement with a significant turn-off. In the past, I dumped Iphone because it has no card slot and battery is irreplaceable. It's a pity that Samsung just did that. I think S5 is my last Samsung phone.
A video review came up, pretty extensive one excepted on settings menu customisations, it's like he never tried on a S5, because what he explains as new was available from start last year.
Else, he made an impressive and quick multiwindow demo, apparently taken from Note4 i understand.
the phone is ulgy look the same as the 3, 4, and 5 so no diferent. still the same size, galaxy always show a great looking phone, then come out with the same thing and you took away the sd card and if the battiery go out you have to get a new phone. i don't like it might go to the lg g4,
Cheong, 20 Mar 2015Why don't have a look on Huawei Mate 7?ive had a huawei in the past
they are the worst phones
Today we made a quick Z3 vs Galaxy S5 screen test. The test was to see which phone will play better 1080p video directly from YouTube. The SONY screen just outperformed by any means the AMOLED one by miles. Sharpness, details and colour reproduction from the SONY display was just unmatched...not to mention that superb screen brignhtness. If you need a phone to watch videos on the scren Z3 is by far the best choice for that. Honestly this Z3 screen is unreal...dont know is it because the BRAVIA engine or something else, but i will choose this device over AMOLED screen phone any day.
xps, 20 Mar 2015ridiculous comparison. That's like saying you would intentionally drop something not waterproo... moredon't be stupid, my beautiful GS3 got water damaged by just being inside my coat, it rains in UK, so the water got into my pocket and the phone got soaked in water, enough to make a permanent damage.
you don't need to drop it in the bucket of water, only some continuous exposure to water you beautiful and rather expensive phone is a history
keep your phone in the plastic bag and carry it around if you are in UK or rainy countries, because it would get water damaged.

You may have done a lot to save me a pile of money 'ole buddy. Really appreciate the time you spent with your reply. Here's why - my new Lumia phone got wet earlier this year, and little water = no phone. It is an inexpensive model, and I simply replaced it. Your observation is well taken on my part, so much power, and capacity packed into such a small case, and so vulnerable... . Thanks again for your reply. I'll keep an eye peeled for your posts. Please stay in touch.
mas39, 20 Mar 2015Oh I love it, all these Samsung fanboys trying desperately to love the S6, hehehe! don't try, ... moreI'm not here to be a fan but to be fair (since i want a S6 edge, not a S6) but your post is quite.. Can't find a word:
Sony Z Ultra (to me):
1- i don't replace a 1 year old phone (my S5) with a 2 year old one (Z ultra).
2- Dimensions 179.4 x 92.2 x 6.5 mm (7.06 x 3.63 x 0.26 in)
Weight 212 g (7.48 oz)
Size 6.4 inches
Are you serious ? I prefer buying a 8" tablet next to my phone. My phone has to be pocketable during all seasons, not only in winter.
3- square shape (or monolithic as we were calling that before, outdated now)
4- 8MP, it's cool for you, i had that since 2010 with a flash in bonus
5- Amoled over IPS for me (excepted ZTE BLade S6 which has the new 0 air gap technology that Apple will use soon, amazing display but still inferior to Amoled).
If this sells well it will be because of Samsung's Marketing and not because of Samsung's Engineering. IMO S6 is a step backward from S5. Non-expandable memory (no MicroSD card slot), non-removable battery, no waterproofing, only Exynos variant (ROM development issues), useless QHD resolution (battery consumption, GPU strain, pixelated Games and Video, waste of internet bandwidth for media and browsing), useless glass back (fragile and fingerprint magnet), overpriced and did I mention reduced battery capacity (2550mAh vs 2800mAh). I want an Android Flagship not an iPhone running Android! Samsung has just become another Apple, selling overpriced, restricted and undervalued phones based just on their brand value. I loved the old Samsung much, alas..

I understand, different people like specific brands. I would not be surprised, they would find something to complain about, regardless what Samsung does.
Oh I love it, all these Samsung fanboys trying desperately to love the S6, hehehe! don't try, just follow your senses and love Sony instead, be brave and buy the Z Ultra you will love it, picked up so many awards for it's design and looks. It's performance is on a par with any other device and the Adreno 330 gpu is brilliant, hasn't been pushed at all yet.

But they need to make S6 (or even better, Samsung) guilty. I don't see such whining on HTC comments or other brands.
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2015YOU ASKED a very good question, let me turn it around for you a bit, did any of the GS2,... moreridiculous comparison. That's like saying you would intentionally drop something not waterproof in a water filled bucket.... Its just stupidity that drives you....

Pretty much lots of people are posting same-thing over and over. If you say one thing they is the opposite of what they said, you either have to work for Samsung or must be fanboy. Some don't even bother to read what you say!
Yes both camera and battery life look promising. Can't wait to get my S6 edge 128 gb, still can't decide between emerald green or platinum gold.

Else, there's someone who made a tutorial on youtube :
Best is to ask current S4 owners if they got any tips for you, in their section
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2015what are you on about!? we are talking about water proofing , Lol, i just made a search for him (some people are lazy)
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2015YOU ASKED a very good question,

And what about htc, Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE, Asus, LG etc..? They don't provide water resistance as their n°1 selling point (if present), only Sony since the Z series. So there's no must, but it's more a feature which was reserved to Active series for Samsung and which is getting back to it for S6 it seems.
As an owner of a S5 since release, mine has seen even less rain drops than all my previous galaxy S, so your sentence about deep regret seems a bit strong, no?
AnonD-373771, 20 Mar 2015Same, S6 battery life will be good, people simply have to wait until the device gets released.... moreBoth tests, they took great photos despite the reviewer being a bit apple biased. But their battery test is quite convincing for my own with their real conditions.
I think Wazza G just wants his critic to be the only one truth, that's typically trolling since he spent a good 2/3 pages to repeat the same thing.
