I like a rounded design because its very comfortable to hold, and it fits comfortably in the pocket, what I call userfriendly design which always wins in my book

To be realistic s5 is a good device with Samsung plugging every loop hole that's present with the previous version, you get
1. Updated touchwiz
2. Water proof
3. Brightest led screen ever made
4. Isocell camera module
5. Updated processor as per Industry standard
6. Somewhat bigger battery
7. All the goodies present with previous galaxy devices.
8. 128gb sd card support


The design is as same as s4,the bigger bezels are the compromise Samsung made for making it water proof. We all know Samsung is not going to have a super duper design.

The phone will not satisfy or justify s4 and note 3 users, apart from them it should satisfy other users to be realistic, at the end of the day it's upto the personal preferences

Htc update there phones faster than samsung now . They coming back but without a sd slot and a better camera it's gonna be tough to catch up they design gorgeous phones but the looks don't do anything special unlike having expandable memory and a nice camera. I don't like samsung tw or there design but they give me the best package money can buy I need alot of memory and phones without a sd slot is a no go. 64 gigs is nothing now my card is filled up . 128 gig internal memory then I would venture elsewhere.

I think it has been quoted as 30 min under 1 m deep water, I would call that some sort of water resistance. Especially contrary to Apples garanty voiding humidity detectors which are VERY easily triggered ....

The S4 card capacity isn't an advantage at all because all Galaxies starting from the S3 and Note 2 used XC standards instead which will support capacities of up to 2TB providing that it was formatted to the correct format aka FAT32.
