Samsung Galaxy S5 concept takes its design cues from a current flagship

0. phoneArena 28 Dec 2013, 20:51 posted on

Designer Hasan Kaymak often comes up with concept models for HTC handsets. That seems apparent after taking a look at his concept for the Samsung Galaxy S5. Looking like some relative of the flagship HTC One, this Galaxy S5 concept includes an edge-to-edge screen of an undisclosed size, two speakers in front, similar to HTC's BoomSound, a metal casing, curved corners, and a reversible microUSB port...

If it looks like that, HTC will be suing.

As sorry as Samsung designers are,, they aren't that bad to blatantly copy like that.. Samsung has the same old boring design on their Galaxy devices, but at least it's THEIR same old boring design.. I'll give them that❕

Well I think you're mistaking Samsung for Nokia here. Samsung does refresh its design every 2years. Nokia? Same heavy fat brick design since the N9.

Well, luckily the term "heavy fat brick" doesn't apply to my 1520 because that would not be good... Lol❕ I think my 1520 is lighter than my 920..LOL❕❕
Oh, and we can't forget about Nokia's commitment they made to not use the "N9" design on every new device, and we have seen that with the distinctive design of the 925, and 928.. Actually there's been only 5 devices to use the N9 design.. Look at the rest.

Darkkjedii made quite a legit statement, then you came with your Nokia fanboy self, and then SleepingOZ defended. rodneyej1.. if you like a specific brand don't brag and stick by that brand.

How is it that so man??? Where is the from home button on the HTC One?, the back side clearly suggest that is would have an cover for battery/internal access (see the grey colour bit on the back), this up/down bezel on the One with the speakers on the outside while on the concept the speakers are next to the screen and so on... This looks nothing like the One, look at the 2 pictures one next 2 the other and please, stop taking cheap shots like this, you know better... Just a lame action to milk some thumbs up from another biased PA folowers... Peace out

That's why I love my Lumia 920, and 1520.. All other phones look the same.. Now, Sony has some good design, but in my opinion LG, Samsung, and others ate just boring clones of the played out Galaxy look... I do think that HTC can be good when they try.. Just look at the One, and the 8X. Those where some terrific designs.. Nothing beats Nokia though.. Now, this is just my opinion....

Samsung is the worst❕

Did you click on this article to hate on Samsung? You seem to be against anyone who hates on WP on WP articles..

No.. Samsung makes great devices.. So, don't even try it.. Now, as far as design goes,, they could do a whole lot better.. But, I'm no hater who can't give credit where credit is due.. Samsung has ok quality, great selection, good innovation, and terrific support.. Boring, old school design.. IMO.. So, that's more of an unbiased opinion than your boys can give on a WP related article...

"Boring, old school design.. IMO.."
Sorry, but your opinion is still biased. You should go to the Samsung store and try the Note 3, hold it and feel it.

Please be more less-fanboynism, you will earn some respect from other people.

I'll give you that.. I have held the Note 3, plenty❕.. It is a little different, and it has a better quality feel, but I still think Samsung can do better.. The design of the 8X, One, and pretty much all of Sony's devices are awsome❕... Fanboi❔ I'm not hating on Android, or saying Samsung devices are bad just because they run Android, so what are you talking about.❔.. This is just a discussion about design, and in my opinion Sony, and Nokia, and Apple are about equal, HTC is next, and Samsung, and LG could do better.. Do you think all I look at at stores are WP devices❔.. Really❔.. Do you know how many note devices I see everyday at work❔.. You must think really highly of yourself to think I care about your respect..

Chill the f**k out bro, there's nothing wrong with being a fanboy, but do you know that your comments are too fanboynism? You're like Steve Ballmer's brother, do you know that?

I don't hate you, and I love Nokia too. It's just that your super duper fanboynism comments are embarrassing Nokia and Windows Phone. I hope you understand. Again, please be more less-fanboynism, you will earn some respect from other people.

Please dont include nokia, cant you see their phones are so obnoxious? By the way HTC one is better then iphone in terms of design... sony won many awards in the past for designs but sony is best as well in fu©king something in their every flagship.. I do agree samsung is boring in their designs and the problem of LG is, it always try to do what samsung has already done. I will not call it a copy bcoz technology is not someone's father property but LG always try to walk on a foot print of samsung
