Liveblog: Samsung's Unpacked 5 event (could it be the Galaxy S5?)
It's time. Samsung is about to hold its Unpacked 5 event, here at MWC 2014, and you know what we're all expecting to see on that event. That's right - the mythic Galaxy S5 - an epic smartphone that should arrive to become the latest iteration of what's probably the most successful Android smartphone line.

Separated from the noise and bustle of MWC, Samsung has occupied its own corner of Barcelona - the Centre Convencions Internacional - and it's dedicating this space to Unpacked 5. Well, judging by all the preparation and the lovely setting, this is just bound to be an exciting event!

Samsung Galaxy lineup is what happens when a company plays it too safe. Today I decided to play a game about guessing phone names by their looks. Guess what. I failed. The moment I gazed upon a Galaxy phone, I was like: S4. No Grand. No Grand 2. No Galaxy Mega. F**k it.

I stopped to trust Samsung after bought SM-P605 and last Samsungs device I buy. Multitouch, screen shaking issues on all Note 8, Note 3, Note 2014 WiFi/LTE and Samsung give a sh*t to release fixes for them. They missed to copy Apples, customers support and release updates fixes too.

I really hope you are correct, if Samsung didnt surprise us, or at least didnt change the design and build material... i will no longer trust them and it's either The all new HTC One or the G3 for me :)

Who the hel* gives a shi* now that we have the Z2? It's unbeatable! S5 SOOOO UGLY Only HTC can compare to Sony in the Android world!

Don't forget LG, Oppo and Huawei.

Whoops forgot about LG! They have great devices since G2! Oppo and Huawei are nice, but I think the Chinese have still a lot to catch up in the quality, support and software sides.

S5 > Z2 I'll assure you that.

Assure whatever you want, but please only to yourself. Even you know your wrong. Your EGO is just too high to admit you're wrong.

technology is awesome, I love seeing what new designs companies have on their new products. If you are someone that just bashes new phone concepts then I feel for you.

We know the prime will be the main flagship and it will be close to their patented design hopefully

S5 = S4 = S3 absolutely ZERO design innovation across 3 generations! WTF Samsung!!! I'm still in SHOCK by those leaks of the S5. It they turn out to be true then RIP Samsung, it's time to let others like Sony, LG, HTC pave the way!

Whatever, just bring it on and we'll see. If the S5 really looks like the ugly one in the leaked picture today, you're out, Samsung.

That's what u said last year but they end up selling 40 mil units. I'll take your insult as a good luck charm ;)

I don't care with those 40 million buyers, I only care about Samsung's design. They'll have to change the design to get even more than 40 millon buyers. The Wave I, II, and III is still the best Samsung design ever, and they should have implement that design on their flagship line.

So? What does that 40 million buyers have to do with this? The most important things on a phone are the features, design, hardware and user experience, not sales. With that being said, I still think that Samsung needs to catch up on the design of their phones, they improved a bit on their Note line with the faux leather back which is a welcome edition but they still need to improve more. Just look at Sony, HTC, LG, Oppo, Huawei, Nokia, and ZTE, their phones look good. Samsung should learn from them. The Samsung phones that have good designs in my opinion are the Wave series, Galaxy S2, and the Note 3. That's all.

Yea,but if look closely samsung was not happy with their sales numbers,it showed that their growth started to decrease,for any great tech company thats a huge warning,i mean just look at nokia or blackberry they had huge sales numbers but when the boat started to sink it turned into titanic.I think todays flagship can't have just features,people demand great and quality design,most people(non tech) consider smartphones fasion accesories,thats why you see sony and apple rise,htc barelly but it is a shift.
