Living with the Samsung Galaxy S5, week 2: exploring the depths of TouchWiz
0. phoneArena 04 Jun 2014, 10:39 posted on
Last week marked the beginning of a journey for the duration of which the Samsung Galaxy S5 had a front row seat. Actually, scratch that -- a more proper way to put this would be to say that exposing the S5's every nook and cranny is the end goal -- the journey itself is nothing more than a facilitator. Like we have in the past, we felt like Samsung's latest flagship is a many-layered device -- layers that a uniform review process doesn't necessarily uncover...

i personally think that there's a huge problem when a phone has an easy mode...

Still trying to push the FUD about the screen PA? I'll continue to take the word of a Ph.D with specialized equipment over that of the clearly agenda driven Ray. Yes, in cinema mode the S5 v has excellent color accuracy, and one of the best direct sunlight brightnesses available.

I think its time samsung start making some really good looking phones instead of that cheap looking phones they got. Every other company is making like a WOW phone but not samsung.

Why so much of talking bad against the S5? That's what I found in this review.

There is life after Samsung. Please stop making this out to be the best. Get an HTC M8, and free yourself.

the m8 is a great phone but it isnt the best. i love it myself but there are a lot of people who prefer the s5 for the camera. there will always be trade offs

Phone Arena guys have an IQQ problem. 2 weeks to get to air gestures and a week for the menu lmao. it took me less than 2 hours to explore every single thing in my GS5. you guys are better off with an iPhone, it's made with old people in mind.

Why does phonearena hire retarted people?
"It takes two weeks to learn the TouchWiz settings menu"
Anyone that takes two weeks to learn touchwiz settings must be a dump retarted knucklehead. It literally took me a few minutes.
This is the most biased, hate, childish article I've ever read.
If you want to read a professional unbiased articles just head to GsmArena and checkout the full detailed comparison between Xperia Z2 and Galaxy S5.
This article shows the difference between a professional and a childish mentality

So, in a few minutes you were able to tell where every option is located, without having to hunt it down? Because that's what I mean by learn -- truly learn.
There are over 60 separate icons that represent different features or options in the settings menu, each with an average of about 5-10 inside. Moreover, some are exiled in to the strangest of locations, and clearly represent a lack of uniformity of this already overly-heavy menu.
