Bloomberg: Galaxy S5 might be priced lower than usual, coming with sharper 5.2" display, and a larger battery

0. phoneArena 18 Feb 2014, 14:59 posted on

Citing "a person with direct knowledge of the matter," Bloomberg pins the screen size of the upcoming Galaxy S5 to be 5.2 inches - no ifs, buts or maybes. That's a tad larger than the panel of the S4, and a diagonal that's been bandied about numerous time before in other leaks...

Perhaps you should lay off the drugs pal, you know the mind bending drugs supplied to you by Samsung!

Gotta be honest, if this is true I hope it has the side effect of bringing down the price on the Note 3. I'd still prefer that to the S5.

Yeah, sammy doesn't do it for me. Not a fan of cheap feeling phones with cartoon UI. Selling more doesn't mean your the best, Toyota outsells all other cars, they aren't better, more people just blindly buy them because everyone else does,lol, same with the Toyota S5.

So you dont like iPhone then.....with the cheap cartoony OS???. And Toyotas did outsell all other cars for the longest time because they are the best. When they moved into the US for manufacturing is when the issues started. Hope the same dosent happen to Motorola.

Toyota outsells other cars, has way fewer recalls=better quality.
Samsung also offers a similar experience in the mobile world - this is reflected in sales of both "devices" that you want to compare in your post.
You are just a troll - haha

Really...you clearly don't live in the UK then, because we are forever seeing news stories about thousands of Toyota recalls because of various dangerous faults!

The biggest different is LG doesn't update as well as Samsung.

As a Windows Phone user, I say nope. Aside from the square design, nothing resembles WP. Besides, tiles on WP usually have only 2 colors and do not show much information.
I already got regtangle and square widgets on my current Samsung phone. :D

This is my guess:

Standard lineup will start at $149
Flagship lineup will start at $199

Could care less which company makes a good phone - I just want a good phone, and if there is something that I do not like about it, then I want the ability to change it....

Really can't wait to see what's there in Samsung Galaxy S5 ..

Also expecting Touchwiz to come with more handy features and most of all; it should perform faster than ever and be very responsive.

If any time to win people over it would be now. The past galaxy devices are meh at best. The S5 at least has a chance to show what samsung can actually do besides packing useless features into one ugly piece of plastic. I think they care more about this device than any of their other devices. I still think it will be a let down with that pointless QHD. I'm sick of my G2's bad build quality. I didn't buy a case right away this time and scratches everywhere, and a couple chips. I dropped it like twice from waist high, in my car down the side of the seat. Not much damage should happen there. Don't think samsung will do any better with their plastic. Unless they don't choose plastic, but lets be honest. So far all these flagships that are coming out still feel like last year to me. Nothing new really coming out. Samsung is samsung, HTC is putting two cameras on it's new device, Sony keeps it's sony look. Stop being so boring

Dude, you drop any phone and it will mark up. The one thing that bugs me about most of these phones is the shiny slippy backs to them. They need to be a bit more tactile to provide better grip, especially the larger screened phone which you have to shift in your hand to get to the upper parts of the screen.
