Ashraf Eassa of The Motley Fool on the newly announce Galaxy S5:
The Galaxy S5 is likely to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 in the U.S. and other developed markets (and an “Exynos Infinity” for international versions), 3GB of RAM, a 2560x1440 display, an updated/new industrial design, and a fingerprint reader. This should make it the crème de la crème of Android devices, and to address the critics that Samsung’s products are “cheap plastic,” there will likely be a version with a metal chassis. The iPhone 5s is likely to pale, at least from a hardware perspective, in comparison.
Inaccurate reporting of the specs. He’s rehashing previous rumors as if they were facts.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 is likely to be a great device, the most premium of the Android devices. Apple is probably going to lose high-end share as this product ramps, but if Apple is smart, it will prepare to host a “special event” to launch a suite of new iPhone products sooner rather than later.
It might be the most premium of Android devices, but Apple is still running away with more than 85% of the industry’s profits. No one at Apple is losing any sleep over the Galaxy S5.
Google is now offering the Nexus 5 in red in their Play Store and it looks so sweet!
This is the first Android phone I enjoy using as much as my iPhone. If it came with stock Android, it would be close to perfect.
Google doesn’t like what Samsung is doing with Android and is putting them on notice. So much for no being evil.
Is anyone surprised?
Love the design, love the size. Give me this with stock Android and I’m sold.
Furthermore, when installing the app, it clearly states that it will be taking this information. It does not say what they will be doing with it, but this clearly should have raised some red flags for a simple flashlight app. Like long ULAs, users don’t read what these apps are asking permission for and just click through.
Wow, that’s unusual.
Seemingly a Moto X minus the LTE and Motorola’s software customization at a pretty incredible price.
If I was looking for a phone off-contract, didn’t care about LTE, and was looking to spend wisely, this would be a high contender!
So 18 months and you’re out of luck.
Is anyone surprised?
Now supports loyalty cards and coupons, but still can only pay using NFC on a handful of supported devices on one carrier.
Thought it was a joke, it’s real!
LG’s new flagship G2 is very similar to the Galaxy S4; with top of the line specs, cheap design, and a crap ton of software enhancements. I really like how they implemented multi accounts / guest mode.
Arming it with a crappy AMOLED display has allowed Moto to provide a really awesome feature, active notifications.
