Best phone I've had!

OP doverjosh8

24th April 2014, 09:15 PM   |  #1  
I recently purchased the Galaxy S5 and I have to say, it's one of the best phones I have had. I am yet to have any problems with it and it's just perfect for my everyday use!

Has anyone else got it? What are your thoughts?

Same here dude! There's so much hate going on about it online but honestly it makes no sense when this is definitely better than other galaxy phones all around and it's just a beautiful device. Just because its made with plastic shouldn't make it "bad". Glad I'm not alone!

Tell me about it. It doesn't deserve this much hate just because of the material it's made of. Why don't people base it off the actual phone and not the material.

Because people are all about looks/aesthetics these days, that's why.... either way I wrap my baby up in a case, so ven if I had an M8 you wouldn't be able to see the "premium, beautiful metal build". FYI I prefer the plastic, doesn't dent or scratch nearly as easy as metal, and less weight, so when/if it does fall, it gets less damage!

yep, its great

the hate is all about because samsung is getting complacent and not changing up the phone exterior.....i mean..it essentially looks like a S4

what i don't like about it is that i think samsung is mass producing too quickly and a lot of phones have random issues here and there like scratched bezels, crooked stuff, mushy home buttons, etc...the QA went downhill

I'm happy with it!

I've never had a problem with touchwiz. This one is more user friendly and maybe more designed for the casual user but I do find things easier now.

The battery life is better than my S3 but all phones seem to start out with battery life being good for the first year then it goes down.

I haven't taken many pictures but I'm not real happy with the camera.
