I went from the Oneplus One to the S5. I was offered a free S5 from the Samsung Mobile Insights Program.

Changed from LG G3 because of waterproofing & overall size. In these aspects all is fine, but I am still fighting hard to get down to the marvelous battery life of the G3 :/

Plus, for me as a "ROM changer", a major annoyance: the Power button seems to have become a pure software button - so the only way to reset a stuck device is take out the battery

Since 2009 I was an iPhone owner (jailbroken): then in 2012 I bought the S3 (half price from a guy who couldn't operate it), rooted it and was converted. At first I wasn't convinced that the S5 was worth the additional cash but after playing with a coworker's g900f I immediately went out and purchased (over lunch time) a 16gb (Thailand only had 16gb models). And after installing several different Roms (Omega v11 for the last month) I have it tweaked nearly perfect (for my tastes) and patiently (not) wait for a Lollipop ROM that's reasonably stable. I moved due to a great deal and stayed for the flexibility and learning opportunity.
