    Irks me there is still a 16gb version.....32gb's should be the minimum at this point. But overall good device. I'll take a 32, please!

    For me its the size, just too big for that screen. Why are the bezel's so large? They could have kept the same form factor as the S4 and put a 5.1" screen in it, just seems like a mid year refresh not a true S5 to me anyways.

    Still overall sounds like a solid phone just nothing to impressive to me.

    Don't know why they made the phone that much bigger than the S4 while keeping the screen only slightly larger. Looks good other than the awkward speaker placement.

    Like the specs and new feature, but I will pass because of the size. My S3 might get replaced by the S4, or a different brand, by lets see what else is out there for us cell phone junkies...

    Same my S3 for now is staying, still leaning towards the G2 which is more appealing than the S5 has a bigger screen and is smaller. Still want to see the next HTC phone before I pull the trigger however.

    "regular" folks are still fine with 16GB.

    Really don't see how the s5 is an upgrade from the note 3. It's nearly as big with a smaller screen.

    Maybe we'll get a good "S5 Mini".

    Better camera and processor.
    Fingerprint scanner.
    Not sure how important those things are to you though...

    It's not meant to be an upgrade from the Note 3. Those two devices occupy different parts of the market.


    It's bigger because of dust and water resistance.

    I honestly kind of like how it looks. Need to see how the camera performs in the real world, though.

    I think that might be the issue, for some people those are huge features and others are left wondering why they even released a new phone. To each their own, this phone will have massive sales regardless of what "we" think.

    THUD.
    C'mon HTC
    I was really hoping image stabilization would make the cut.
    Water resistance is a great addition, but this thing seems too big for my taste.
    Was thinking I would pull the trigger as soon as it became available, now I think I'll wait to compare this with HTC's next device.

    It's not an upgrade from the note 3. The note 4 will be an upgrade from a note 3

    Don't count out the g2, released a bit ago but still has comparable specs. Also has image stabilization if I recall correctly.

    Well, I don't care about fingerprint scanners and I'm not a health nut nor do I have any interest in the watches.

    Soooooo.... guess I'm still looking for a new phone?

    Nice to see it's water-resistant though. But that should be standard these days.

    I don't think it's intended to be a direct upgrade. The S Pen is in a class of it's own.
