  1. Gimmicks. Just to sell another Gimmick. Ironic isn’t it? They use gimmicks to sell their gimmick products. And no, I don’t have money to buy expensive phones. But yes, I can rant about it. :)

    Its not free if not free forever. Its more of a try-before-you-buy gimmick. Samsung should instead give additional gadgets if it really wants to give. And also, those apps and services? They have an equivalent app or service that you can get for free. Fail.

    • Good point. How is it free if you can’t have it forever, right?

    If you’re gonna spend big bucks, just spend it on something else like a Z2 or your kid’s tuition. Don’t patronize this crap.

    • Agree with that. The Samsung Galaxy S line of smartphones that used to be the leading example of how a smartphone should be done is no more. The S5 is not much of an upgrade and its design is so tired and overused. Heck, some people even went as far as referring the S5’s design as “Band-Aid” design due to its resemblance to a band-aid patch pattern.

      The brown Galaxy S5 really looks like a cheap band-aid in sari-sari stores.

  6. Samsung wants all your money, plain and simple. There are a lot of phones out there that deserves your dough. The upcoming LG G3, Xperia Z2, Lumia 1520. All of which deserve to be a wise spender’s next phone. But this Galaxy S5, they changed the back of the phone, changed the name, added fingerprint (which doesn’t impress majority of wise users), and voila, they have the latest, high-end, gimmick phone.

    the phones specs. is quite considerable. but the phone is still made of plastic, reducing it’s prestige.. I’m also hoping for major upgrades.

    android kitkat version, nice!!!!! but the worth of money spend for the phone is relatively unjust.. if the updates and innovation is significantly Big people will much appreciate the phone.
