Default Google Play Edition thread (not here, over there)

Keep an eye out on this thread for any potential news of a Google Play Edition S5 coming out.

The only thing I don't like about the S5 is bootloader lock and lack of magnetic charging pins (since USB port is covered up).
A GPE is likely to be the only thing that gets me to spend my money.

Here's the "official" GPE watch thread:

Yup, mine came in last week. It's great. Don't even need htc dev to unlock the bootloader lol.

It's unfortunate that it's only the silver for GPe. I'd much rather have the gunmetal. I guess if I do pick one up down the road I'll just get a dev edition unlocked straight from HTC. As for the Sgs5, I think the new TW is great and I don't see why you would want to get rid of it unless you just refuse to use devices that don't have vanilla Android.

would there be an unlocked bootloader on the GPE? Get that, flash TouchWiz based if you feel like it, etc? Not sure how it worked on the gs4 and a quick Google search didn't reveal anything
