One thing that really bugs me somehow, not that it would really make a difference, is that the S5 has only 2GB of RAM.
Samsung always tried to push maximum specs in its flagships, be it the Galaxy S or the Note series. The Galaxy S4 was better than the Note 2, Note 3 better than S4 and S5 better than Note 3.
But Note 3 having 3GB RAM and S5 2GB kind of surprised me and even now does.

Looking forward to the Sony Xperia Z4 (or 5)

It's the reason why I'm not getting the S5, I also found it odd that they went backwards on the RAM compared to Note 3, that's why I think Samsung are trying to tell us that the very top specs are moving to the Note series, which could be why they launched the NotePRO series of tablets.

Mu guess is that with Android 4.4.2, the new architecture of the Snapdragon 801 and the new TW version, 2G of Ram is sufficient

This is very interesting

If it actually works they've removed one of the biggest disadvantages of BSI sensors.. I need to see samples but in theory it does sound promising. The S5 has a relatively big sensor as well.. close to the 1520/ICON/Z1/Z2

You have some photo samples here

They are good but not impressive, I would say Z1/ lumia 1520 quality.

The Note series needs more RAM because of the extra software which run on it and the larger screen. Air command in particular. I dont see the S5 as being substantially better than the Note 3 though. Touchwiz needs to be toned down to unleash the power of the CPU. Apparently there will be an update for the Note which will give it the new Touchwiz look that will come on the S5. I hope it tones down touchwiz a good bit.

I'm really having some trouble with RAM, more RAM would be welcome.
S5 doesn't need more RAM than Note 3, but definitely not less than Note 3...

Nevertheless I'm really curious about S5's camera performance in low light, like to see some objective comparison withother flagships.

I don't think that the larger screen requires more RAM

Samsung execs deny a Galaxy S5 Premium, yet hint at an upscale smartphone lineup... and a Note 4

The Russians already have samples. They pit the S5 camera against nokia and the note 3.

surprisingly, the note 3 seems to be taking better photos. the S5 seems to have a quality comparable to that of z1 or maybe z2. they're noisy.

see them here: http://www.mobile-review.com/[....]samsung-galaxy-s5-camera.shtml

You seem to be be lost, pal, I knew what you meant, but due to the fact that we really aren't sure if the device will be a premium S5 or a whole new exclusive line of phones or an internally (cpu, gpu and RAM) upgraded S5, hence why I said a special S5 or F brand, we just aren't sure what Samsung are doing.


And you keep being defensive.
http://www.phonearena.com/new[....]lineup...-and-a-Note-4_id53906


Who's frustrated? You seem to be looking for something that isn't there.


Was a joke... You know what this is?
Oh, that defensive behavior...


BTW, you seem to like putting people in a box, you say "Sammy boys", like we are Samsung zealots, yet Aussieland uses a iPhone5S, a Note 3, a Lumia 1520 and iPad Air
Bonovox uses an LG G2
I use an S4 and iPad4
and Rikken also has a mix of brands, so not only are you lost, but you're talking utter rubbish. just stop, you're embarrassing yourself.


Why so serious? (or defensive?)
C'mon... Don't be so grouchy.
Wasn't this a debate?
Very coherent coming from who said this... (not)

Chill out dude, my question was about Samsung's treatment over it's flagship.
This piece of ugly plastic can't be taken seriously.
Heart rate monitor? Fingerprint scanner?
If it even had an RGB amoled arrangement but,it don't.

I really don't care about 3GB of RAM and i would like to try another brand like i did my entire mobile life.
Had Sony Ericsson since 2003, tried Nokias, Siemens, Benq-Siemens, Samsungs, Motorolas, LGs and now i'm with Sony till another manufacturer offer me a better thing.
HTC don't sell phones in my country so, what is better than Xperia Z2?
This uglyfied S4 don't... (yes, S4 is "cuter")

So what you just did there is a post a link that I just posted 2 posts before you
Yep, I'm super grouchy now, lol.
Your question was why we are being defensive, when we are debating.

If you don't like the GS5 then that's your opinion, one that I share to a certain extent, you could've just said that from the 1st post, we were having a good debate until you came in and rambled on about nothing.

Oh by the way, Samsung have been offering a better "thing" ,as you say, for many years now.

Again what are you talking about? Your link seem to contradict your initial post and then you start a whole rant about something different (how much you dislike Samsung Galaxy). And since your mind has been made up about how you dislike Samsung Galaxy i am not sure what type of debate you want to have in a Samsung thread
