Exclamation Early look at the Galaxy S5

Hey guys!

Soo.. Pocketlint had accidentally posted their Galaxy S5 review minutes ago and has deleted the page... However, I managed to enter the page seconds after it was posted and I've read the review. I have taken screenshots of the page for you since it is now inaccessible. What can I say, I am underwhelmed by this device. If you're looking for a metal S5, look somewhere else.

See it for yourself.

(And yes, of course it will come with a fingerprint scanner :P)

I am not at all interested in this phone if this is indeed the actual phone. Looks like I will be getting the HTC M8 mate.

What a disspointment.

I was getting my hopes high for a premium device worth the price they are asking. Samsung prices their phone the same as Apple, yet Apple phones are so much more PREMIUM. can't say that about Samsung. I hope people would stop buying it so they learn a thing or two.

This phone looks exactly like the S4 who also looked like the S3... seems like Sammy has copied Apple in this department too.
I thought they were saying they would start with a new fresh design. what happend to that?

I will definitely not be buying the S5 if it looks like that. When will samsung understand, that exterior design is an important part of a smartphone.
