    Default Hello from samiams5

    Hello Droids,
    My name is Rick and I live in Texas and retired( I'm an old man). Not only am I new to the forum, I'm new to smartphones. Although smartphone have been around for awhile, I have been using the same old free basic flip phone since I started using a cell phone.

    The flip phone did what I needed it to do, calls and texting, but now I am starting to lose my eye sight and need a bigger screen. My new S5 has opening a whole new world for me.

    Being new to smartphones, I have a lot to learn. I found this forum and have already receive answers to my questions. I want to thank everyone here for your time and help. This is a great forum. I'm looking forward to learning from you all.

    Thanks again
    Rick (aka samiams5)

    Thanks for the welcome and I will use the thanks button.
    I would like to add that I chose the GS5 for a couple of reasons. First, I have been a longtime Samsung consumer. Most of my electronics are Samsung and I have been very pleased with their products. Secondly, Being my first smartphone, I really never used another smartphone to compare to. My daughter has an iphone and she loves it, but the s5 has a bigger screen and it just appealed to me more then the iphone. I started the buy the note 3, but for me, it is just a little to big, the s5 is perfect size for me to carry around in a case/ holster . So for I'm happy with the S5.

    Welcome to Android Central! We welcome young and old alike.

    Personally I like it when older people post here, it allows me to see some things in a news light
