Default [Q] Galaxy S5 or keep G2

so i am curious what my fellow g2 users think about the gs5 unveiling today? will you keep your g2 since honestly the gs5 didnt bring much of anything that is better than what our g2 already has, or will you be trying out the gs5 anyway to make sure you like or dont like it?

Only thing I'd say is that the S5 seems likely to have a better dev community than the G2. Since having the phone, I've been really disappointed in how poorly the XDA G2 forums are run and organized (all variants under one forum; poor responsiveness from the community for questions). From sheer volume of S5 sales, I'd say it's more likely that you'll get a better dev community with that phone.

+1 that. Samsung has been acting like Apple. Once they have the market share they become complacent. I will always support an underdog as long as they are innovative and take chances. The G3 will be mine...although the M8 by hTc looks interesting.

Neither the s5 or the g2. Go with the upcoming htc one m8, its got some serious development. If the htc m8 comes with 1080p screen that means the oppo find 7 will be the only phone on the.market that has a 2k screen which is going to impressive.

Keeping g2. Samsung is preloaded with too much bloat/excess i do not care about or want in my phone. Yes i can remove that stuff but its just the point. Reminiscent of old moto blur

I wouldn't want the s5 to locked down the HTC m8 looks cool but I will probably stick with the g2 its amazingly fast and does everything I need it to

G2 only because Galaxy S5 has a smaller screen with a larger body size ... And Samoled. And Touchwiz. ...Maybe Xperia Z2?
