I call this bullsh1t. I think samsung is lying. How could they sell more of this ugly crap when it's more ugly than its predecessor? If this is true that means samsung need to design galaxy s6 uglier than galaxy s5 to get more sells.

Well, they have to understand, these might be first time smartphone buyers as well as people from Apple or WP or other Android camps that want to try the S5. They aren't people who have an S4 (some maybe), but those plus S3 owners can also be here for this. You have to imagine, even 10-20 million people is a drop in the bucket that is the 1 billion android phones that sell every year.

Gains and profits?
Samsung is the #1 smartphone company in the world, and on top of this, they gained even more market share last quarter. They make 7~10 Billion dollars profit per quarter, that's about ~30 Billion dollars per year. Samsung is cheap?? LOL

I have the s5 and it doesn't feel cheap in my hand. The plastic is the same polycarbonate plastic otterbox is made from that most iphone users put on to protect their beloved premium iphones...which means they don't even get to feel the phone in their hand. Whats the point of a premium feel if your gonna end up covering it up anyway with some sort of case.
Shallow people who want to show their phones off wont put a case on it, but most people who don't want to pay insurance claims or buy used phone to replace theirs will just case it up anyway. This whole premium phone discussion is getting stupid with the screens getting bigger people are starting to protect their phones more, so whats it matter at this point?

You are a fool if you are determining the price by production cost... samsung has built a very strong relationship with dealers and distributors.. samsung take very less profit on its products as compared to apple... but we get samsung's products in high prices bcoz most of that money goes into dealers n distributors pocket

"but we get samsung's products in high prices bcoz most of that money goes into dealers n distributors pocket" therefore Samsung will most likely not gain any profit at all? FOOL! read to achieve! LOL you're just trolling with yourself...

Why do we consumers have to care on whether Samsung make a profit or not? I care about paying as little as possible for my devices.

Free would be most preferred.

You nonesen$e... who told you samsung made no profit at all? they are not doing charity n not making phones to put in ur hole... samsung's phone usually sold at three to four times higher then manufacturing cost bcoz one time profit goes to dealer, one time to distributor and if there is any other sales channel partner then also its share of a profit... yes I am trolling your smelly as*

no one is jelly of this, the hate and dislike of this S5 is that it looks ugly. the S2 was the best design cause it was more sharp edged and the S3 was the ugliest having curves and bends everywhere. the S4 was ok, but S5,,,,,

I held a white S5 in an AT&T store yesterday, it's actually not as bad as the pictures make it look. Although it definitely doesn't look great.

It feels great in the hand and it actually doesn't look bad. I was planning on waiting for the Padfone X but I might just get the S5 instead.

Lol whats this hate on curves. Doesnt your toilet seat has curves, or even that has sharp edges to look eye catching rofl. Your woman/girl is curvy or sharp edges lol. No offence but just take a chill pill on that curve hate. Htc one has curves but still looks stunning.

But i'm not a blind hater like majority of samsung haters. I have a reason always. I hate htc for their gimmicky cameras but i love the stunning design of One family right from One X, S. Lg for HORRIBLE UI but i love their compact designs lately. Sony for their inferior displays except z ultra, z1 compact, z2 but love their designs and camera.

Stop with this "stunning design" BS, already.

HTC M8 is fugly as a hell. And no one dare to say that truth.
BEACAUSE the iboys love ALUMINUM, ALUMINUM, ALUMINUM, ALUMINUM....
Besides only ppl with Tim Cook's "desigh" orientation, can put the furst look over the real tech-design and functionallity,

I dont understand why ppl think aluminum is premium? this world is really full of dorks, sometime ppl doesnt have any knowledge and they start running their mouth out of nowhere... alumium is a very cheap material whereas some plastic composites are way more expensive then aluminum... usually ppl made their mind based on what appear as premium regardless of reality...
