5.0 out of 5 stars Evolutionary NOT revolutionary! April 11, 2014
Oh, Another year, another set of phones from manufacturers! I have been hooked onto get the latest phone every year syndrome and love reviewing specifics. Disclaimer, I love Android and have been using from very early days. I will not call Samsung Galaxy S5 as revolutionary, but it is certainly evolutionary. If you have an older phone more than 2 years old, absolutely get this. I love Samsung Galaxy S5 from its competitors for few reasons - removable battery, microSD card support and the maturity of the product. I have been using a S5 for past couple of days and have ordered a unlocked one from my local store. There are so many variants already in the market. So do check local specs. For example, in china market dual SIM S5 is available.

Galaxy S5's back plate has a perforated dot pattern and a excellent matte finish. As a result, the phone looks far more sophisticated than its past designs despite its plastic build. Its surface feels nice to the touch without being too rough or too slippery. I really do _not_ care about the plastic, in fact the lightweight nature is what I care. Some people make a huge deal out of it. A high quality plastic is good for lightweight and I go with lightweight than a heavy phone in the pocket. A reputed tech site called recently Samsung as the “undisputed king of the Android smartphone space”. True indeed. With the plethora of devices in tablets/phones, they have iterated so much that they can produce truly stunning products.

If you care for weight, the Galaxy S4 is lighter than S5. (please see my stats below). In fact pixel density is slightly higher in S4 due to a 0.1in size difference. So get an S4, it is cheaper and still same phone that came out last year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Samsung Evolution May 7, 2014
First off, I am not a professional reviewer, nor am I employed or compensated by Samsung or any other company. Instead of boring you with facts - which you can find anywhere on the Net - I will just give you some real-world impressions on how it looks, feels, and runs. With that out of the way, let's get to the point and the nitty gritty, shall we?

* THE SCREEN - that is the very first thing you will notice when you look at the S5. Samsung has found its niche with AMOLED screens, which are BRIGHT & SATURATED. Everything almost literally jumps out at you, and sometimes even too much so. I had to switch to the "natural" setting, as the "vivid" and even "standard" profiles are too saturated(and FAKE) for me. It's better as a demo unit to draw you in, but for everyday use, I recommend switching to the natural profile.
FACTS: The Galaxy S5 has a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with Full HD resolution - 1080 x 1920 pixels or ~432 ppi pixel density, plus Gorilla Glass 3 to protect the screen from scratches.

* The Look - the S5 has a more squared-off edges look than the S4, which is more squared off than the S3, but all three are not as angular as the S2. In terms of roundness-to square-ness, it goes from the S3 - S4 - S5 - S2 (the original S just looks like an iPhone 3GS). Check out my images for an easier comparison. The S5 is the tallest and widest, but not the thickest of the Galaxy S's. The best thing I can say about this is it's an evolution. Beauty is subjective, so judge for yourself. The front side is almost the same as any other Galaxy phone: You have the physical Home button, flanked by the "back" and "menu" capacitive buttons.

Ok, First off, I had to get my phone through Sprint, since they only offer the "Easy Pay" plan online or in store... (I would go with an Amazon Easy pay in about 2 seconds of it existed.)

**Update 5/9 - I had my first experience of the IP67 Waterproofing Yesterday... I was working in my yard and had my phone in my shirt pocket, while up about 4 feet in a ladder my phone slipped out and dropped straight into a bucket of water! Honestly despite the certification I thought my phone was toast... But Nope, it didn't miss a beat, it was still working and playing Pandora without a problem. I was worried so I took off the case and back cover and found no water penetration into the phone, (The phone was submerged for about a minute) This was very satisfying to see and definitely increased my happiness with the phone....**

Also this review won't go into Tech specs or Vs the major competition, Specs have been covered and "Vs the competition" is pretty subjective.. I owned an S4 so I'll compare it to that.

Size: no major difference, it has decent hand feel, no it doesn't have a metal case and it isn't perfect but it works for me just as well or better than the S4.

OS: I haven't rooted it yet or replaced the OS. The stock touchwiz seems to do fine in normal operating mode (It does stutter a bit in heavy power saver mode)

Battery: It performs as well as my S4, and on most days a bit better... I used to get 8 hours even before I got the 15% battery warning, Now I go between 8 and 11 depending on use.

Screen: It is significantly easier to see in sunlight than the S4. It does seems like it gets brighter...

Samsung Features: Air Gesture and Smart Stay seem to work well. At least I should say better than the S4.

Release Day Shipping?
I pre-ordered this phone also, and my shipping with prime is estimated for the same date. I've gotten one other newly released phone from Amazon, and it arrived one day early. Not allot of hope this will get here any earlier than expected.

The unlocked version should work with no problems, the Sprint version can be used in Mexico only with iusacell, I don't know about the rest of the countries.

I have an upgrade, can I use my upgrade for this?
I just did it... it took a long time w/Sprint Customer "Service" but finally, after about two hours (yes, literally two hours) I was able to get my account set up so I could order this phone via, which was important to me as the $168 is the best price out there for this... Read More

I agree. I have 16 gb S3 and ran out of space a few times. I am waiting for them to sell a 32gb version of S5. If they don't release it, i'll wait until the next iteration like i did with the s4

without a sevice plan
It is locked to the Sprint network. We bought at full price two days ago and Sprint has refused to unlock and activate the device because we do not have an account with them
