Exhaustive Galaxy S5 design and interface video reviews appear, plus comparisons with the S4 and iPhone 5s

Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 earlier than usual this year, at the MWC expo in Barcelona in February. Availability of the handset, however, is left for April, as usual. That leaves about six weeks between the announcement, and the actual release, and that time has been used for a couple of early reviews of the handset. We already saw one with a few camera and video samples from the Galaxy S5, and now we get more, in video format this time...

OMG who the Christ would wana buy this S5,,,,? Not me!

Where is the promised Arm Cortex Exynos 5420 with 64Bit, and 3Gb Ram?

Surely this is the year for A15, and not Snapdragons 2011 Arm Cortex A9 mixed,,,,?

Where's the Aluminium and stainless steel with sapphire glass? Why copy Aples iPhone when Samsung was pushing the spec boundaries 2years ago,,,?

What a horrible hideous looking design. Take a look at Sonys Nokia L925 and oPpo designs, it looks sexy! But this, yuck!

Ole wait for the S6

Why are you(PhoneArena) are favoring the Samsung Galaxy S5 ( More like Advertizing) in the website, even when this edition lacks the modern Evolution language, Also you guys named it the Best Phone release at MWC 2014 LOL, for having innovative Stuff

So according to you if you dont like a device a tech site that has millions of users who actually like samsung phones shouldn't get any info or reviews? I dont like samsung designs either but that doesnt mean I dont want to see or read news about them.

I didn't say I hate Samsung, I own a Samsung s4, have no problems with it now, but having seen a HTC one and the Sony xperia z1 in my family, and the new ones they are coming up with, the Samsung s5 doesn't really wins hearts, if you still follow the Samsung s5, , you're just as same as any blind followers just like iPhone 4s/5 follow up video by Mattias

If I would need to pick one phone of four in first video I would take S4 black edition. If there will be S5 black edition I will consider it. Still don't like bigger dimensions and gimmick heart rate sensor. I would like dual tone led flash instead.

Wow it's uglier than I thought. The black S4 looks very sleek with the faux leather.

He said, look is a hoax, they all look alike, and even made of the same plastic. The specs are not real, Sam just lied and cheated. However, the camera is improved, and I can film movies in HD, so you can see, online in America.

it don't see how this can be weatherproof with this kind of removable plastic cover.
probably the first tests will prove that it should be called T5 (T like Titanic)

Not the phone entirely, but the new ui seems quite better as compared to earlier iterations. And finally, an option to remove that homescreen scrolling animation,don't get me wrong on this but I never liked that cubein animation, except for the first few days, after which, it looked kinda annoying in my opinion, no animation while scrolling feels much snappier.
Also, the toggles in notification shade looked kinda different than the ones shown in MWC announcement. And I actually like these new ones, as compared to the circles.

Looking at the new S4 Black Edition i think that Samsung would sell backcovers with faux-leather ...So maybe if this cover looks bad they will give us the chance to change it . its only a cover how much could it cost?

BTW the Iphone 5S looks like a toy besides the s5 and even s4 , HTC ONE , Z1, Z2, Lg g2 and so on ....
