HTC: "buyer's remorse coming soon" to Samsung Galaxy S5 owners

0. phoneArena 24 Feb 2014, 14:03 posted on

HTC tries to poke fun at Samsung, implying that Galaxy S5 buyers will regret their purchase once the All New One (M8) is announced. Well, we'll see about that...

HTC is criticizing Samsung while HTC is mimicking WP experience.

It will go on sale in the US in April, yes, but Asia and Europe should get it starting March.

Hm, it seems that Samsung's official word on the availability of the S5 is "April" for all markets after all. Oh well.

I tell ya what HTC can do that Samsung can't and that's get service in the areas that don't get good cell reception. The radios in HTC are as good as motorola and Samsung don't even get close in that area.

very poor design.I wouldnt buy the S5.Not innovative enough.With designs from sony and htc and even LG,this is poor indeed.Ive always maintained that the best in the series was the S2.Never got any better

So long as batteries continue to remain embedded in HTC smartphones, I will continue not even considering their smartphones.

HAHAHAHAHA Yes I love HTC! Please do better than the S5, though that shouldn't be hard. I am not dissapointed Spec wise with the S5. I personally feel we have peaked with specs. So they should change something else like hmmm I don't know. Maybe the design? Smh Samsung.....

Did Samsung copy Apple a Lil in design, but look at this and the s4, y would upgrade? At the same time look at last year's iPhone to the new one? And people still upgraded. So people r going to do what they want regardless of how stupid it is. I for one luv my note 3, but I wonder if Samsung will copy Apple again and come out with a premium version just like the crappy I phone 5c

Well given the fact that the GS5 will be released in April, this actually gives HTC a fighting chance to survive in the market if they can present and release their phone in late March/early April as scheduled....

sorry HTC, but design itself is not enough to win costumers, and this attack on samsung will not help you either.

will the HTC be waterproof? finger print scanner? better camera? better features? more options for cases and accessories?

if HTC has those or better, then i might consider HTC.

Really? OK...you got a point with a better camera(i still loved the HTC One camera)...and waterproof would be useful...now for the rest...fingerprint scanner, how is that enev useful mate? cases and accesories...there is such a big market out there...is that what you are buying a Samsung Galaxy for?

Though i loved the Front Facing stereo Speakers, i hate onscreen buttons (leaks say the M8 will have them), i need a removable battery, and a micro SD card slot.

Water proof is a plus but not a deal breaker.

Plastic or metal i couldn't care less. I always put on a case. And you cannot feel Metal through an Otterbox Defender.

What HTC has over Samsung is the radios installed. HTC radio is on par with motorola and that says a lot when it comes to having service in areas that have less than desirable coverage. Who cares about waterproof? Really that's a gimmick and who s gonna go swimming or submerge there phone in water anyhow?

Not really a gimmick. As a Z1 i've had some real usage for the waterproofness.

To be fair, i had my HTC One insured anway, since is virtually impossible to fix...so makes no difference if it goes for a swim or not...lol

Love it HTC! Samsung did it to Apple, now HTC is doing it to Sammy. You have my money HTC, same specs, better design and UI! There is no way I could ever be drunk enough to get the S5 over the HTC One.

Samsung have just given HTC the best present, I bet everyone at HTC, Sony, LG and even Apple watching the unpacked event breathed a sigh of relief.
