The Samsung Galaxy S5 came amidst sky-high expectations, and Samsung mostly delivered with top of the line hardware in the form of the Snapdragon 801 system chip…

Of course I can accept it....I dont even like Samsung phones...

But you basically inferred that iPhones dont have issues by listing all the same issues this article posted...and said the iPhone has no problems with those issues, when the post you replied to didnt say specifically these issues for an iPhone article, but just an iPhone article like this....

Especially after finding this:

http://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/news/apple-reportedly-aware-of-iphone-5s-touchid-problems-fix-said-to-be-coming-soon-490601

So...who do I believe....you or this article about Apple being aware of the problem with TouchID...

I only said, I quote: "Why, do you think iPhones have SUCH problems?!", I never said it doesn't have ANY issues.

Have you ever uses Touch ID? I have and I have friends that have used it. No problem whatsoever (one of them still has 7.0 because of full screen call).

And the post you were replying to didnt make such a claim as the exact same problems as this article....

He just wanted an article similar to this for the iPhone: 5 (plus 1) mighty annoying features.

As for TouchID, no....I havent touched an iPhone since the 4. Just browsing around the world wide web I stumbled onto that article.

If you haven't used an iPhone since 4, how do you know there are annoying features with it?!
I know because I use the darn thing, but you? why do you speak if you have no f* ideea?!

Tell all the ppl at macrumors iPhone troubleshooting section they are lying then.

Tell anyone at any iPhone troubleshooting section they are lying.

I dont just make stuff up. I even pointed to an article were Apple admitting to knowing about the TouchID problem. Are they making things up?

In case you didnt know...the same can be said for any mobile OS. None are trouble free....every one has a troubleshooting section. But for some reason...iPhones sections must dont exist.

I'm sure all the phones have that but, as I can't talk about... Tinzen or Firefox os because I have never used them, I expect that ios problems to be talked by... ios users, not by one who hasn't been using an iphone since 4.

For sure NO... bcoz iphone is the most innovative phone in the history... by the way samsung is a so called copy of iphone so above list annoying features must be present in iphone as well otherwise its not fair to call samsung a copy :p

People love the phone and it sells, has proven pa argument is total invalid, Samsung has his own league and no one come even closer on that, best interface, best camera, best build quality, best screen, best of every android smartphones.

If Android, then Samsung, no doubt galaxy s5 is the best and will remain the best another 2 more years. Shame on you PA!!! Stupid Stupid!!!

Guys please. He's obviously been hired by LG, HTC, Sony, or Apple to give Samsung fans a bad name.

Even if he is hired to troll then probably not by Samsung. Because with such silly trolling he is just making shame for Samsung and for adequate Samsung fans.

Your comment is total invalid, you probably don't even know what you're talking about but you only want people to know how much you love Samsung. I feel pity of Samsung because they have a stupid blind fanboy like you.

The reason why PA post this kind of article is because they want to show us what we may not like on the phone itself. That also means that the S5 is not perfect, it's excellent but not perfect, nothing is perfect. If you love Samsung, you should stop talking BS here, stay on topic, don't act so insecure when someone talk bad about Samsung, because Samsung is not perfect.

The fact that Galaxy phones sell so well despite several critical flaws is a reflection who Samsung's customers are not on the quality of the product.

Maybe you definition and their definition of critical are different...

Plus anytime the iPhone 4 could break sale records...with Antenna Gate....anythings possible.

ok... you can say that to the flagship Galaxy S5. What about mid & low end Samsung phones? They are crap, worse than some random Chinese phones.

best build quality my asss

Do you by any chance work for Samsung?

Wow, talk about nit-picking. This phone does not deserve anywhere near the amount of hate it gets.

I agree...along with a few others that posted similar.

I dont like Samsung phones....but this is borderline nit picky. Like I said earlier...only one I would have a real issue with is Touchwiz lagging.

All the other issues could be faulty device or just small inconveniences. And if its the only two stock apps that lag....might not even be Touchwiz as a whole. Sammy might just need to optimize those apps.

Moto a few years ago had a laggy gallery app. Many blamed Moto software for it....turns out all Moto had to do was redo, update the gallery app. Problem gone or minimized.
