Hi,

I'm planning to get an S5 (G900F) for my girlfriend and I was wondering if there are any differences between the 16GB and 32GB versions (except for the storage of course) ?

Will I be able to flash any ROM made for the G900F 16GB onto the 32GB version ? (as the partitions likely have different sizes...)
Is the 32GB S5 the same model (G900F) as the 16GB, or does it have another model number ?

Thank you,

No difference besides storage capacity.

Just be sure it's not a replica S5, I hear most of the 32gb s5's are replicas. Just be aware, Things like heart rate monitor and fingerprint reader will not work. I believe the screen is just a tad bit smaller too, very hard to tell the difference, everything is under the hood.

Just remember to be sure guys

I'm not saying what you guys are saying is false and it may seem obvious, but the Note3 16gb and 32gb were different and I think cross flashing caused some devices to hard brick.

Maybe someone here who has the 32gb version and has flashed a custom Rom could confirm that?

Thank you,

It's more expensive!

My SM G900S has 32 GB, and the disk aria is partitioned into 5 sectors. May be you can flash the same rom as for the 16 GB model, but some data and apps will be altered.
Anyway, I prefer the 32 version, since the OS and so take about 6 GB of the disk space.

About fakes: My phone is 100% original, but there are a lot of good fakes - most of them with 16 GB. So be careful when buying.
