  •  Truth about Samsung Galaxy S5 14 April 2014

    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. http://techiesss.blogspot.com/

    2/5 stars

    By Obed Lucksom

    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.

  •  Did the kind get slain? S5 is expensive but impressive. Samsung has hit most areas correctly but it still looks bad. 06 May 2014

    4/5 stars

    By Chaitanya Narula

    We have come to expect a lot from samsung flagships, mainly because of the hype that samsung creates about them but also because these are really good products. S5 has faced heat in India because its simply very expensive for normal consumers and doesnt feature the amazing snapdragon 801 and adreno 330 (for geeks). However, it still remains an amazing phone with great hardware let down by an uninspiring design and overbearing ux. Ive been using samsung flagships since the s3 came out and revolutionised the android market forever. It was a truly amazing phone but it samsung was thinking way too fast for the hardware manufacturers to catch up and deliver the buttery smooth performance a flagship (like HTC One X) should offer. So, its time to see if Samsung has finally turned around and delivered what is necessary and if the hardware OEMs have caught up with Touchwiz visionaries (not quite). Yes, the phone is expensive and made out of plastic. It doesn't make it a bad phone in entirety. The main features of a phone: screen, camera, battery life and Samsung has managed to hit the right spot with all three of them. The screen is just fabulous, It is capable of producing 500 nits of brightness (equivalent to super bright) and the color reproduction is superb. It' s still a tad warm but I personally like it. Performance is not really an issue for the S5 and it handles absolutely everything with ease. With the touchwiz more flattened out, animations and swipes look nicer and feel smoother. The overall look of the ux (minus my magazine) is much more coherent everywhere. The circular flat icons in the notification screen look nice. Camera is an absolute delight. it focuses almost instantly and captures amazing shots outdoors. Phase detect might be the only samsung thing that has worked the way they intended it to in a long time. I have a few complaints with the low light performance when i compare it to the HTC one but Its not too bad. The loudspeaker is another area where the phone fails. I just don't understand why its taking samsung so long to realise that front facing speakers is the best and only way to go! The matte back cover is hugely improved. Its not perfectly nice and premium but the phone doesnt creak, thanks to ip67 rating. Ultra power saving is ultra life saving. Although with a battery life as good, i never really wanted to use it besides the testing. Its really not that hard to recommend S5. If you can pay the price, the only capable contenders are HTC M8 and iPhone 5s which are as expensive. Now it comes down to sacrifices and compromises. For the good looks of the M8, you will have to sacrifice as much as 12 megapixels of camera. The finger print reader of S5 may not work as well as 5s but it can do much more than merely unlock the phone. HR sensor is just a gimmick, at best. While the phone is certainly not the most beautiful, it performs well is water resistant, has USB3.0 and an amazing screen, camera, battery life (and touchwiz).
