  •  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.

  •  Obed, drinking the Apple Kool Aid 09 May 2014

    4/5 stars

    By Jamie Rakes

    Obed could not be more wrong if he tried. Every year Apple introduces it's new iOS, with "new" features, and I've had those "new" features on my android (Nexus) for at least a year. Apple is failing to innovate, and failing miserably. Soon they will be trumpeting bigger screens, NFC and wireless charging as ground breaking technology that they developed. Apple isn't innovating, they are playing catch up, and doing it poorly. Apple sheep will never learn.
