Maybe they are taking advantage of the 1.5-2 years carrier contracts. Most people with S3 will have their contracts ended or ending soon while S4 still have some time to go.

Believe me, if you lasted 2yrs with an S3 there's no way you'd consider an S5.

I've lasted two years with an S3, and the only reason I'm not considering an S5 is I want to see what the Note 4 has to offer. The S3 has been an awesome device. I can't wait until the devs get the 4.4.2 update cracked and rooted so I can try it.

yeah most likely, doesn't matter in any case for me though, my decision was already made when I purchased my Galaxy S III that the next phone would be an OS other than Android. :-) contract ends in 3 months

This is what I like to see! Rather than bashing the competition, Samsung simply pointed out the good qualities of the S5 in a nice, professional way. I still won't buy it though, because Samsung is really bad about updating their software on older phones.

Smart users don't care, cause custom Roms and XDA is available.

Can't always install a custom ROM broski. Some phones are carrier locked.

Wait, last time I remember, you said your country doesn't have Google Play access. Now you are saying your carrier locks bootloader, I thought only US carriers lock bootloaders.....
