    Default Galaxy s5 operating system choices

    Do you think the S5 will run Tizen or Android?

    Samsung would be crazy not to run Android--I guess I'd wonder if maybe there might be some potential dual-boot mode. How popular and widespread is Tizen anyway?

    The S5 will most likely run Android with a redesigned TW skin. I seriously doubt Samsung is ready to make the switch to Tizen, but it will eventually happen. They need more developer support and a fully functional app store.

    Definitely running Android. With the recent deal the made with Google and the leaked images of redesigned TW I can't imagine they'd still go and drop a proven OS for one that has never been on a flagship before

    Very good point. I think Samsung should just drop the idea completely. Firefox OS is having a hard/slow launch, and to my knowledge, Tizen isn't even out of development yet...

    I thought they had it in some low end models internationally
    They should just stick with what they got going. If it ain't broke don't fix it. That's what they've been doing with their Galaxy line since the S2

    Probably right on the devices. And I agree wholeheartedly about if it ain't broke....
