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.

On a side note, if I were "terrified" by the comments and hate, would I still be posting here? Didn't think so. ;)

This was probably the worst joke I've heard about the S5. Nothing tops the band aid joke so stop trying.

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?

I'm butt hurt after admitting the band aid joke was the best joke. Go back to school and stop being so thirsty for thumbs up kid.

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.

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.

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?

He clearly said that the band aid joke was good. You just went on a nonsensical rant for nothing.

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.

Lol he'll never win an argument against me. Never has, never will. He's an attention seeker like girls are in high school. When he doesn't get the attention he wants, he gets mad.

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.

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.

Why don't you just stay on Xperia Z2 articles? You seem very insecure with all of your pathetic gibberish.

So, your point here is to win an argument? Okay, you WIN, happy now? Kinda reminds me of kids wants to win an argument for a toy. Pathetic.

Man, who wants to play with your stupid arguments? Ain't nobody got time for that. Pathetic.

Comment #29. Comment #7 is self explanatory really.

My joke flew right over your head. Re-read it and maybe you'll get it. As for now, I'll just sit back and laugh on how you just made yourself look like bad.

He is just a hell of an annoying hypocrite. He goes all over Apple, Samsung, HTC, and every other OEM's article hating on their products except for Sony's, and then at the end of the day plays the innocent card and claims he isn't a troll and he is a true tech guy.

It was just a mistake, nothing to feel bad about. And you still didn't elaborate why you think the title is a bait title, it looks like you said that just for attention. Okay, I know, I know.
