Follow the tech industry long enough, and you'll soon realize that a wealth of, strictly speaking, unconfirmed information on new devices comes through benchmark suites. GFXBench is pretty high on the list, with practically every manufacturer having had a slip at one point or another...

mate there have been multiple articles across the web regarding the various tests run on the s5, i have seen the drop test and regardless of what people say, wether its a amatuer drop test or not, it was STILL DROPPED on to pavement and survived 4 drop tests including a 10 foot drop, and 2 SUV tires one of them drop tests even had it landing on its face and nothing, a bit lucky yep but it still passed, the performance was claimed to be better then htc because it was NOT using the maximum power for benchmarking which everyone kicked up a stink about, so samsung disabled the feature, however HTC had their turned on when both devices had their features turned off the s5 spanked the htc all over, fact, the display was tested by a proven display company who said it had the best colour reproduction they had ever seen yet on a mobile device, the camera, im not so sure about, as i personally though some of the pics were of less quality then the s4 as stated in a few leaked photos from last week, and the battery life i have not seen, but its claimed to certainly be up there with the top devices thanks to its ultra power saving mode, end of the day, its not my favorite device having got bored of the s series but it is certainly one of the top devices out this year and that is a fact, for now at least!

2 flagships a year? Who will be able to afford this?
22. GamasK (Posts: 22; Member since: 27 Jun 2013)
If they include this one, there will be 3 flagship (S family, Note family, and this one)

It has begun... Samsung Galaxy S5 (qualcomm); Samsung Galaxy S5 (exynos). Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, Samsung Galaxy S5 Premium (this phone we are talking right now)... let's see how many variations we get this year :(

Consumers like choices. Those that aren't afraid, that is.

i dont like tens s4s/s5s but i like this one. just wish it is smooth and better battery.

S5 has the best battery life among all phones. It was shown in the battery test.

This is so boring, samsung floods the market with all these galaxy lines of phones. Just sick of it and to be honest the 800 chip is fine for me. How much speed does a person need because all of it at this point is marketing when you can only multitask at your own speed.

There are infinite uses for faster processors. Things like real time voice augmentation, incredible camera tricks, 3d scanning, virtual reality, AI, games and so on

Don't understand move for 2k display in 5.2" screen...its gonna consume more battery and overload gpu...1080p displays have more than sufficient pixel density...why ont stick to them for 5" screens?
38. JMartin22 (Posts: 1221; Member since: 30 Apr 2013)
Quad HD resolutions are supposed to offer a more mature desktop viewing experience on your phone. The move is natural, but too soon. We need to stay with 1080p for at least 2 years so that QHD gets proper development and research time put into it to make it more power efficient and color accurate. That's why all these Chinese phones using QHD right now look horrible and probably have poor battery life. They're not properly optimized with the best technological configuration.

Samsung have models end with 6 for China market. Like Note 3 N9006 and probably this S5 G906S is meant for China market.

Man Samsung just don't get it, bring out s5 that has most brand recognitionthen eclipse it with another phone not even 6 months after this is really going to confuse people on what to get they are going to kill their sales with so many variations!
Most people here hated the S5 but now SD 805 QHD screen, "OMG best phone ever!" This pointless specs race will never end! What good are these specs when nothing is optimised for it! The need for these specs are useless as most content will just go 4k in the next few years with not much 2k content! And we have not even got full coverage of FHD content available!
I used to be a big fan of Samsung had the s1, s3 and s4 and I even like the s5 (just not design wise) But this is illogical?
68. tedkord (Posts: 4937; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
Samsung sells more smartphones than anyone by a country mile and makes billions every quarter off them. I think they get it just fine.

No matter watever spec sammy phones have I am not buying a samsung phone again till they dont change their pathetic boring design and bring a major overhaul to touchwiz. I had galaxy s then Note 1, then note 2 now using note 3. I am fed up of the same kind of looks inside out. Its time to move on. I am getting a oppo find 7 !

What is different between this and Sony releasing flagship every 6 months ?
60. JMartin22 (Posts: 1221; Member since: 30 Apr 2013)
It's hypocritical really. LG and HTC have also done it as well. It's clearly obvious what you should go for with Samsung if you want the best anyway, their Note series
57. jibraihimi (Posts: 695; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)
Just hope this phone has good design..... If it looks like bandage again, then i will wait for note 4...

I don't really mind the design. But better wait for the Note 4.
69. renz4 (Posts: 236; Member since: 10 Aug 2013)
so how much faster adreno 420 compared to adreno 330?
70. ChafedBanana (Posts: 359; Member since: 20 Sep 2011)
Uh oh. Everyone, quick! Cancel your orders for the Galaxy S5!!! The S5 sucks now! This is what the S5 should have been!
75. davenycept (Posts: 174; Member since: 03 Jul 2012)
Sounds like the F series.... this is part of the reason why I don't think the S5 will sell AS WELL as the S4
78. Edmund (Posts: 656; Member since: 13 Jul 2012)
just like the last s5 which, according to rumours, was supposed to house a an octa-core processor, 20mp camera, and qhd screen.

SM-G906S: How soon do we think compared to April 11th for the regular S5?
101. antonman (Posts: 3; Member since: 12 Apr 2011)
Is somebody from Korea here?
Which is the best phones from Korea: Samsung, LG or HTC ?
102. TimTebow (Posts: 70; Member since: 14 Feb 2012)
Should have released this instead of the S4...again....um..I mean S5
Samsung and Apple both crap now.
Crappy old Iphone already beats the new S5 in most tets. How pathetic is that?
Plus it looks the same again, same as the same iphone crap.
Unreal how bad these companies are.
I have Note 3, semi-crap.
103. mgerreyn65 (Posts: 2; Member since: 28 Aug 2013)
Hey Samsung thats enough ok. Please allow us to use at least 1 phone for at least 1 year. You'll keep manufacturing phones like water. Idk what to do with so many phones being released these days. At least keep a flagship phone for a longer period of time.

It does not have an autofocus on camera?
