3..2..1.. Let the comments begin.

Article could be reworded to "Samsung Galaxy S5 could be used by medical professionals in Korea" instead of a bait title PA.

But. That's exactly what Korean officials are doing: trying to see if the S5 can be designated as "medical equipment." I really don't see how this is bait title.

Nah, he's just terrified by the hate comments on the S5, he don't want to admit it so he made a U-turn by saying this is a bait title.

I didn't start nothing. I simply made my statement based on the activity on the site from the past three days. Every Samsung article has over 70+ comments, and there's 164 articles so far about the S5 according to PA. It's safe to say people like you were bound to land here, and I was correct now was I kiddo?

Only tech geeks are against this phone but the vast majority of the world don't even go to phonearena.com they'll go to a shop see the brand name and the heart rate sensor and go oh that looks cool.

+1 for using your brain. So what if the "4,000" people on PA don't like the S5. There's over 7 billion people in the world. I'm pretty sure 7 billion is more than 4,000 last time I checked.

Oh trust me, I know. These past three days repeat twice a year. Galaxy S model unveilings, and new iPhone releases. Look back last year to the S4 and the iPhone 5S announcements. The bandwagon grows each day sad to say.

Yeah papa, don't waste yr time. The S5 looks gorgeous and is full of neat features that everyone likes and wants. Oh and that heart monitor...my God I always want one. And the bandaid jokes are just mean and nasty, to me the S5 by far the best looking phone out there. Total original and never seen before. But anyway yr doing a good job papa, please... keep defending this absolute piece of awesomeness and I'm sure the holy mother sammy will reward u.
I'll make sure to tell sammy how good you did.

24. xperiaDROID (Posts: 5042; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)


Do you know why the band-aid joke is all over the place now? Because the S5 looks just like a band-aid, you gotta accept it. Trust me, if the S5 didn't look like this, no one will make a joke like that, even if there is, that person is just an immature attention seeker. So, blame Samsung's designer for making this "beautiful" and "creative" design.

"Go back to school and stop being so thirsty for thumbs up kid."

Using back your old style senseless comment eh? How is school related to thumbs up? It's pretty funny that when you go mad, you're like crying. If I'm really "thirsty" for thumbs up, would I be giving credit to Samsung for making their UI look cleaner and better?

Oh, if I'm really "thirsty" for thumbs up, I would've bash the S5 like a biased fanboy which I won't, I will still give credit where's it due.

If you want to call me a Samsung hater or a troll, sorry you can't because I'm not. I'm just being myself as a tech lover and a consumer.

Lol this is the most hypocritical comment I've seen in the past couple of days. Playing the "I'm not biased or a troll" card because we all know Maury has proved that was a lie. Give credit to that, troll.

Clearly I've accepted it if I admitted it was the best joke, and this where education plays a role. If you would learn how to read, you'd know that. You missed my point - TWICE. To answer your question, yes you are thirsty for those green thumbs with comments like #16 and #7. I have yet seen you make a positive comment in the past three days. It doesn't affect me and I don't care if it's negative, but don't try to cover your trolling history with a made up lie. Last time I recalled! it's a UI designed for children, so why aren't you intrigued by it?

36. xperiaDROID (Posts: 5042; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)


Okay, I admit I read it wrong, my apologies for not reading it properly. But you still can't prove that I'm thirsty for thumbs up on comment #7, you said the title is a bait title, but how is it a bait title? You didn't even elaborate it clearly.

About the positive comment, do I need to make my comment look like an OBVIOUSLY positive comment? Yes, I admit that I did kinda troll in the past, but that doesn't mean that I didn't change. I did change for a long time now, you didn't notice because you still think I'm trolling. This pretty explains your personality, only remember a person's bad history.

About the UI, you said it's a UI designed for children, and why I'm not intrigued by it? That's because you have your own opinion and I have my own opinion. This is a simple thing that we humans should know.

A mistake that made yourself look bad. Tables have turned my friend. Want to have fun trying to roast me these past three days? Here's a little dose of your own medicine.

As for the title, read comment #1 again. While you're there, add this to it: imo.

Oh, trust me, Smurf, I know. I've frequented this site for about 3 years now, and he has always been that way. He tries to "mask" his trolling, but doesn't do a very good job at it. I guess kids get excited when they see the green thumb, or whatever.

If I can't handle it, I would've close my account in PA, but I didn't. I can see the amount of hates I got, but I don't really care. I'm just being myself as a tech lover and a consumer. I come to PA is to see the latest news about tech and reviews, because I love tech. I can see that this site isn't the site that was used to be good when I first came here, this site is getting worse because of the fanboy hates, bashing, insulting etc. in the comment section.

We all have ignorance sometimes, but we all can fix it though, just like Sony fixed all the flaws on the Xperia Z1 and now they came up with the Xperia Z2 (probably doesn't make any sense but you get what I mean).

Hypocritical comment of the day #2. Practice what you preach. PA was better before you got here in all honesty. 4562 comments in 11 months full of troll, hate, and ignorant comments.. That's a lot.

Let's not forget the fanboy hate, bashing, insulting, etc. that you just did these past four days. Last sentence proves your worship for Sony lol....dot.

You should consider closing your account and do us all a favor btw.

^The biggest hypocritical comment of the day.

" PA was better before you got here in all honesty"
Said no one ever, except you.

"4562 comments in 11 months full of troll, hate, and ignorant comments.. That's a lot"
Full of troll, hate, and ignorant comments? That's a lie.

"Let's not forget the fanboy hate, bashing, insulting, etc. that you just did these past four days."
Let's not forget the fanboy hate, bashing, insulting, etc. that you did most of the times on Sony articles.

"You should consider closing your account and do us all a favor btw."
Don't represent everyone here if you're the one who's making this favor. Can you get more dumber? Sorry, I won't close my account, because it's MY account. Stubborn PapaSmurf.

Peace!

How does it feel to be one of the biggest trolls on the site? Your actions speak a lot louder than your words I hope you know that. So you basically admitted to hate, bashing, insulting, etc. these past few days, and yet you said you're a changed person? Lol caught you in your own lie. If I recall, aren't you always in Samsung and Apple articles trolling and posting nonsense? I gave Sony props and still do with so many things. You? Nope. Feeling the heat. I have a feeling you'll be closing your account soon.
