Now I know that even phone arena staff is full of nothing but trolls. I am so upset at this unbalanced twisted misleading unhealthy deceitful offensive comparison. And I suggest a visit to the psychologist for a head check. Even if you are biased be biased to yourself and deceive yourself for as long as you like. How dare you call s5 premium. Forget it that phone feels lovely and super comfortable to hold. Let me add that there is nothing premium feeling about the iPhone. Boring unexciting phone. I used it and absolutely nothing spectacular. I sold it for a z30 and boy do I love the bb10 OS. Nicer gestures I tell you. I have a note 3 and that phone is a beast. I feel heaven every time I use that phone. Daniel P should be fired and then banned from all tech site. Phone arena should really check articles like this. It really depreciates your equity as a brand and dilutes it too. How dare Daniel P!!!!!!!

The only thing holding me back from getting any Android device is Imessage, even though you all might think it is not important I use it so much and would rather use imessage than text, so if Android came out with something like Imessage I would definitely get an Android phone.

Gsmarena can't be trusted anymore ... they are taking money from samsung... they removed the user score system, samsung phones had the worst scores. bad mouth samsung there and your posts will disappear...welcome to the new gsmarena I have a S5, mic is a piece of s**t , so many people with mic problems on the s5, caused by bad software, bad design and defective mic...i though ok the phone looks ugly was s**t but gsmarena review as positive... users review was s**t... money wasted.
