  •  S5 is not worthy enough. 21 April 2014

    3/5 stars

    By Anurag Gupta

    I think S4 or Nexus devices are much better options than Samsung Galaxy S5. It does not have much difference so that people will get attracted to it. Samsung has introduced fingerprint scanner and Heart rate monitor features in this version of Galaxy series which are neither of too much use nor worth half a lakh. The only good thing I found in this phone is its 16 megapixel autofocus camera. But again if I have to spend this much amount I would prefer a DSLR camera and a normal Android or Windows phone rather than this one.

    Same phone, same design, same performance, poorly optimized software, all same...nothing new only snapdragon 801 chip, and its not 64 bit....even if they make 64 bit chip...again the ball is in the hand of google to roll 64 bit android software.................a way behind apple.....pls don't compare with apple....they are way ahead....and if you truly looking for gaming performance device like me then i m sure that this device is poorly optimized.....i m sure that S3 would perform great on gaming...also heart rate monitor unreliable, finger scanner unreliable, clutter interface.....hope samsung fans would love it.

  •  confusion regarding the features of samsung galaxy s5 06 June 2014

    3/5 stars

    By Amitabh Debnath

    i have seen the features of samsung galaxy s5 in the internet that it is using snapdragon 801 chip-set but after watching the ND tv tech review , i am feeling that samsung really cheated india and indian customer too. i was a huge fan of samsung gadgets . i had seen the comparison between sony xperia z2 which is clock speed is slightly less than samsung galaxy s5 (snapdragon 801 processo4)as sony used snapdragon 800 processor...., but the information was wrong. samsung cheated indian customer as it didnot provide 4G which was provided in other market like Europe, USA ,etc etc..

    After having both HTC and Motorola phones in the past, I figured why not try the Galaxy S5. With all the hype surrounding it, it's gotta be good right? Wrong! I completely regret getting thus phone. I see in no way how it's better than even the old RAZR HD xt926. Yeah it has some neat features but that's all they are...... neat (when they actually work right.) It's basically useless gimmicks used to sell the phone. After a while they become more of a nuisance than anything. And if it's cloudy outside, might as well not even use the camera. Without adequate light, your pictures will look like u took them with a flip phone. I DO NOT recommend this phone to anyone.
