"Gre Phone, Battery and UI improvements needed"

This phone is terrific, but needs improvements to the UI speed and battery life. I can get about 2 days of heavy use but I feel it drains very fast. I can watch the percentage go down.

"Best phone!"

This is the best phone that money can buy. Only thing that I would change is putting the speakers on the bottom or front of the phone.

"In A line, I can say that the Galaxy S line-Up Gets Better and better with its next model!!!"

Practically speaking, it gives you all the features of the latest smartphones. It is light weighted, has Power Saving Mode(The phone completely turns into Grey-scale saving maximum of its Battery). Has every feature better than the iPhones... Comes with a IP67 water resistant certificate.. THE EXCLUSIVE FEATURE OF S5 IS HELPFUL FOR FITNESS CONSCIOUS PEOPLE. IT COMES WITH A HEART RATE SENSOR, S HEALTH APP..etc..... And lastly, it is much cheaper than the iPhone 5S...

"It might not be as much anticipated as the HTC One M8 but the GS5 is an solid performer and i can say it an overall good phone."

The display that we found on the GS5 is great with the 1920x1080 screen resolution and 432 ppi, the colors really pop out of the screen and punch you in the face with it's vibrant color reproduction. It's a solid performer in Reception & Call Quality. The 2800 mAh removable battery in the GS5 is already huge and knowing that you can have an spare one is just saying that the GS5 has a great battery life. I'm not a fan of the perforated design that is found on the back of the GS5 but that design... more...

"Fantastic Phone and Good Upgrade"

Coming from a Moto Droid Razr HD this is a big improvement. This phone is super fast and launches and closes apps seamlessly. The screen is huge with amazing color. Even with and otterbox defender series case on it, it is still thin and fits in the hand very nicely. The only down side it the finger print scanner works about 75% of the time but at times it only takes one try but sometimes it takes a couple. Overall a great phone and worth the upgrade.

"Great phone"

Only flaw I can see in the S5 is the ring....my first two rings are at a lower volume than the rest.....not a deal breaker by no means because other than that, the phone is awesome!

"Best Smartphone ever"

Coming from an S4, I didn't expect a lot of differences, but I am so pleased with this phone. Amazinlgy fast and the display is ridiculously brighter when viewed next to my old S4. Reading outside is so much easier. Love the waterproof aspect although I'm afraid to test it. As long as Samsung make quality phones and don't cave in to the pundits, and keep the removeable battery and sd card, I'll stick with their phones.

"The Galaxy S5 is the smoothest and most complete Samsung phone to date!"

The S5 is a remarkable phone with improvements across the board from the S4. It is extremely responsive, has a much improved camera, is light weight, and has a much brighter screen than its predecessor. The fingerprint scanner works great (when you learn to swipe it right) and the water resistant case gives you great piece of mind. It has the fastest WiFi of any phone i have tested and its 4G out shined my HTC One M8. The Only negatives i would say are that the speaker is still cheap and... more...

Samsung Galaxy S5 review


Samsung Galaxy S5 review
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is here. It’s Samsung’s fifth-generation flagship device and is packed to the gills with the latest technology, including a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, a new Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM.

Around back, the S5 has a new coating that’s similar to... more...
