    As far as I can tell it's a myth. You might as well be waiting for a unicorn (LOL). But who knows? Rumors are funny things.

    By the time the prime is released there will be something better right around the corner. It's a never ending process of waiting for the best thing

    Even if it is released who knows if it will ever hit the USA anyway.

    If we waited for every next great thing we wouldn't actually be using the current great thing. Whether or not its worth waiting is up to you, I don't care about plastic vs metal since I use a case and honestly I am more concerned about storage, performance and battery capacity than I am about metal and a QHD display that I won't be able to tell the difference between that and a 1080p.

    All great points.

    I do think Samsung will release this to compete will Apple's iPhone 6.

    That's the beauty of contracts and taking advantage of upgrades. Either you'll profit from it or break even. I went from hTc M8 to the S5 in 4 days.

    That is what the note is for... Even if they offer thus "super phone" i will still probably end up getting the note 4 since it is a bigger screen

    I have no problem losing what $50, $100 depending on the model and/or my patients.

    No phone is perfect and I love them all but I do get bored and IMO it's worth the lost to upgrade this quickly. In a few weeks I will sell the S5 for Sony's XPERIA Z2.

    I guess it’s worth the wait . It is rumored Galaxy S5 Prime will offer a sharper display and beefier processor, according to Asia Today, which cited information from unnamed industry sources. As reported by Sammobile, the phone would bump up its screen resolution to 2560x1440 pixels from the 1920x1080 found on the current S5. The Prime would also be powered by an Octa-core Exynos 5430 processor and Samsung would finally, jettison the current model's plastic body in favor of a metal one.

    Waiting for the Note 4 makes perfect sense as it will likely be most of what the S5 Prime is rumored to be but will probably never happen. I think its safe to say the Galaxy S5 with its 801 and 1080p will be safely in the elite category till around next year when a proper 64 bit chip comes out with a the S6. Any resolution above 1080p is waste on a 5 inch screen, just will ruin the benefit of a faster processor.

    Does that resolution mean anything in real life usage? Not really ...

    It won't hurt to wait. An S5 Prime would explain why there's no mention of a 32 GB S5 also.
    I'm gonna get flak but I'd rather have Sense over Stock Android for my daily driver.
