So the S5 is announced and specs wise it's an upgrade from the S4. But that's sadly where the story ends.
I wasn't expecting big things ok that's a lie. The lack of the rumoured 2-4k resolution is fine and not to big of a deal.
What let me down was again after Samsung admitting that the design needed to be improved by the slow sales of the S4 and they also acknowledged that it was to much like the S3. Ok so we have the new back and it's now waterproof but somehow they managed to disappoint why?
For me it was that Samsung needed to change the flow in design and really produce that Premium device. The faux leather on the Note 3 works and I like it, but with each new device I would like to see something fresh and the S5 fails. I would of expected a metal design this time round and escaping the look of previous models.
The UI is the same bloat filled rubbish that we now can never expect Samsung to change and that is a mistake. Lighter and useful features would of been great and them tweaks would of went down well, sadly this did not happen another fail.
Storage yet again do they never learn from what I have read only 8gb is available from the 16gb version eh Samsung do you remember the calamity from the S4 obviously forgotten. Another fail.
Ok so it's now expandable upto 128gb but only SanDisk have announced and they will be expensive so that is another fail.
Ok no doubt this will be hmm smooth ish got to remember the heavy skin, so only 2gb of ram this is another kind of fail taking it easy on you there Samsung.
So the heart rate monitor a medical feature that will rarely get used there are superior and better products available to do this a daft and pointless feature.
Samsung has learned nothing and that's what really gripes and irritates.
No manufacturer is going to please everyone with their product but this they didn't even try seems like no real thought went into the S5.
And that is my views on this S5 pathetic it really is.
Get your **** together Samsung for the Note 4 your going to need it as this won't meet your sales targets. I would be surprised if it does.

My biggest disappointment, so far from what I've seen, is same old bloated Touchwiz.
I don't think it's a bad phone in term of what a Galaxy is, just maybe feel more like S4.5 than S5. Or maybe Galaxy 4S. But if you look on the bright side, they have caught up with iPhones in term of version number.
