Not sure why if you post a thread like this in the M8 forum they will close it by saying that no comparisons are allowed and here it's fine. Moderators can you please answer that

Didn't u read the topic?
He has just given his opinion on what made him chose S5 over M8.. And i feel it's useful cos many people including me are curious to know the advantages each phone has over the other!

PHONES-
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo (running Stock 4.3 rooted)
Samsung Galaxy S2 (running Spirit Rom)
TABLET-
Apple iPad Air (running iOS 7 with Jailbreak)
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 3G (running Stock 4.1.2 rooted)

Please reread his post. He is saying if you posted a similar topic in the M8 forums saying why you choose the M8 it would get closed.

it's always nice to know about the pros and cons of phones without the fanboy bashing..

I think the S5 is a beautiful piece of kit. But it's let down by the software. This is one thing that drives me crazy.

I used the S5 for a while and the micro lags and stutters made it feel like I was using a fake china clone.

Take a look at the comparison below. I honestly hope they are able to tweak the UI for future devices. That's the only thing that's holding Samsung back at the moment.
