THe back is like the OG Nexus 7. Though I wonder how it has a removable back and is also waterproof

Lots of glue sealing everything in place minus the SD, SIM, and battery.

troll..
samsung already has 4gb ram ready for smartphones they produce it themselves..

if sony xperia z2 can have it there is no reason for s5 to have 2gb especially when note 3 has 3 gb...

also htc One 2 will also have 3gb ram

Most computer have 4 gigs on average. Does it seem like to few RAM for a smartphone?

4GB is a small amount for a computer now, usually a computer under $500 would have that amount.

It's on Sony to be smart as well, and target mass carrier penetration instead of releasing their phones only on like 1 or 2 carriers. They need to start putting more phones on Sprint and Verizon, they havent offered much on the Verizon front and it has been years since they've had a Sprint phone. I'd gladly buy a Sony phone if I could use it.

Don't even bother mentioning the Z2 since that's the biggest fail of an announcement I've seen yet.
