    4/5 stars

    By Sai Charan Harry

    Too big to handle, unreasonable price, rear camera must have been more than 30 MP.But 2GB RAM makes multitasking easy.

  •  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.

    10 Apr 2014 first to review What?!! Rs. 50,000/- for a 3G ONLY Mobile! Main Drawbacks of S5: NO LTE (4G). NO OIS (Optical Image Stabiliser). NO FM Radio. NO Snapdragon Processor. NO 3GB RAM. NO Temperature/Humidity Sensor. NO USB 3.0 CABLE. Surprisingly this phone (Indian Version) despite being a USB 3.0 capable device ships with USB 2.0 cable in the box. Shame on you Samsung, how much will you save by not providing a USB 3.0 cable. Main Advantages of the S5: - Slightly Bigger screen and battery. - Fingerprint scanner. - IP67 Certified - dust and water resistant. - USB 3.0 port. - User replaceable battery. - Micso SD slot. - Better camera at 16 MP. - Plethora of features like Heart rate sensor, Smart Stay, Smart Scroll, Air View, Air Gestures, IR remote, etc. So it does not make sense to buy a "3G" flagship phone, which will be OUTDATED very soon. FINAL WORDS: The phone overall is very good, BUT, the lack of few critical features like 4G (LTE), FM, OIS, etc and the hefty price tag makes it totally unviable proposition. The correct price of this phone should have been less than 39K, which is the price of the 4G (LTE) Snapdragon model in the international market. There are much better phones like Google Nexus 5 with better specs available at much lower price. So, Choose wisely guys, its your hard earned money and precious Foreign Exchange of our country, India.
