S5 is not worthy enough.
By Anurag Gupta | 21 Apr 2014
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.

samsung galaxy s5 rocks
By Amtull Rehman | 17 Jun 2014
its the best phone it is reliable gives excellent features though it is quite expensive but the advantages are far more than this disadvantage and outnumber it. the dust and water resistance is pretty cool.though I personally don't trust the heart rate feature but its okay u wont use it if u don't want to

good phone..but still feels somethings missing
By Mukul Anand | 31 May 2014
he samsung galaxy s5 has the fastest auto focus with 0.3 secs time and the MP COUNT is 16 MP u must be thinking that the sony xperia z2 has a 20.7 mp camera and the lumia 1020 has 41 mp but wait the lumia 1020 is not better than even the iphone 5s's 8 mp camera the 20.7 MP camera of Z2 is great but has some issues like overheating and some audio video syncing issues especially lip syncing issues when u use that phone for video recording of 2k videos the phone overheats within 2 mins during 2k recording and u will need to shut it down the phone has 2 gb of ram which is not enough for a flagship . Yeah it will recieve latest updates but that too a bit late but its is simply not future proof as it is not having 4g lte and 3gb of RAM . It is very poor in terms of processor although it is an octa core processor but it is not a snapdragon processor . The snapdragons are reserved for foreign countries as they have 4g . Its having the samsung's latest touchwiz ui and latest gestures . If u have that money u can definitely buy it . The worst part for gamers is that it has a MALI gpu which is outdated verdict: go for xperia z2 or htc m8 at this price
