On the eve of its global release, check out the new stateside ad for the Samsung Galaxy S5
Now that the handset is available, expect to see Samsung really start its stateside marketing efforts for the phone. The Korean manufacturer has been spending a ton of money for advertising relative to its revenue, and the company has said that it would dial things down this year. But that is hard to do when competitors are snapping at your heels. Right now, it is the HTC One (M8) providing the competition, and eventually it could be the Sony Xperia Z2, the LG G3 or perhaps even the Motorola Moto X+1.

Copy unique features from everyone, snap a band aid looking cheap plastic at the back then call it innovation. Very Samsung. Sickening!

If your were the ceo you would've done the same point blank... Everyone says if I had... If you had you would've done the same as others... I have to come realize so what if they copied or got copied are we not a copy of each other eyes mouth ears lips tongue hands feet just operate different

You don't like the S5, that's fine. Literally no-one is forcing you to buy one. With that being said, pretending like Samsung is the only company that copies features would be.... naive at best. So run along, find a device you like and post on those articles. There's no point to your post or your hate, without anything constructive to contribute in any form or fashion. You can disagree with the S5's very existence, that is your right. But being so worked up about what a company you literally have nothing to do with or any financial stake in is doing is kind of... stupid. Relax, the great ebil Samsung isn't coming after you to force their devices on you. Feel better?

Nah. You just lack a creative bone in your body. If you had an interesting critique i'd at least respect that you had a logical reason for your dislike of Samsung. But you're just another bland hater. In my personal opinion, I WANT a tech company to incorporate every conceivable beneficial feature and function that they can, so long as it doesn't degrade the phone. Samsung is the closest to doing that IMO, so I support them for now. Sorry for having an opinion you disagree with. (Shrug) I guess that makes me the lesser man for liking a "copycat" company. And I write a lot of poetry, music & stories so explaining things at length is kind of a force of habit. My bad I guess.

Imo, the butthurt one is you since the only thing Sony's flagships used to have over Samsung's was the IP certificates. Now that the S5 is also IP certified seem to make you mad.

All I can say is list another phone that has the same new amoled display with a quad core Snapdragon 801 2.5ghz CPU, 128gb microsd card, removable 2800mha battery, ip67 waterproof phone, USB 3.0 host port, Air gestures, IR blaster for TV or stereo, a ton of sensors, (I use my S4 right now as an altimeter on my ultralight), new heart rate monitor, finger printer scanner, 16mp camera that takes 4k video and is a slow motion video capture camera. There is so much that the S5 can do. It should be called the swiss army knife of smart phones.
I would wait for you to list another phone like the S5, but I know I will wait for a long time before you can even list one.

Start your own company and build a phone from sugar cane and steel.

That is innovation. I have never seen a band aid with a screen on the back. MIND BLOWN!!!!!

Learn from this HTC. Real marketing, show off your phone instead of having someone talk b.s

So the S5 has a refocus feature too huh? So why is eveyone making a big deal about the M8 then? Why did HTC have to install an extra camera lens when software can do the same thing? I mean its really not that big of a feature to me and it definitely wouldn't influence me to purchase the M8 or any other phone. HTC would've better served by going Sammy's route and installing a bigger camera and throwing in some refocus software and spent the extra money on water and dust proofing the unit. A 13-16mp main camera and 5mp front camera with along with all the other improvements would've made the M8 hard to beat! No one stateside has done that yet.

HTC one m8 second camera makes the first camera to be focus faster (0.03 sec) and make the refocus feature without progressing for 4 sec to capture the picture.
I am sure that more app are gonna come out to make the second camera more useful than HTC did.

Don't just make stuff up, dude. It's .3 seconds, not .03 & Samsung's camera does it at the same exact speed.
22. sgodsell (Posts: 2411; Member since: 16 Mar 2013)
Samsung's new 16mp iso cell camera is very fast for taking pictures. Its so fast that's why it can take slow motion video. It has the ability to focus very fast.
