    Default Getting the Galaxy S5? Which device are you coming from?

    Are you for sure getting the S5? If so... What are you leaving behind & why?

    I'm going from iPhone 4S, I think it's time for an upgrade and after getting my Nexus 7 2013, I wanted to go to the Android platform.

    Going from my Galaxy S4
    The GS5 is water resistant, that is pretty big to me
    Also has the camera effects "Green Point/Blue Point" that I loved from the GS3 and which they removed in the GS4

    Coming from Razr HD. I like better camera, screen, water resistance and hope similar or better battery life. Also I'm switching carrier from Verizon to at&t.

    I'll be moving from my S4. Mainly because i'm up for an upgrade so why not. I am hoping that the AT&T pre orders don't start before March 25th because i do want to see if the new HTC One has any major changes that i may like (more than likely not).

    Also the rumor of a Metal Galaxy F phone makes me cautious on buying the S5 just in case that it does happen to be true, i'd prefer that over the S5.

    Well here you can see the new HTC One M8
    It has an SD Card slot which is nyce...I personally think the GS5 is better because of more useful features especially in the camera and its water resistance

    You can think what you want but neither phone is out so whatever you think holds no value

    S2, think I've earned the upgrade and have waited long enough. I had a good 2.5 yr run.

    This guy is a Sammy fanboy hard body. He will defend Samsung even if they went the way of the crAPPLE... I love Samsung myself but c'mon, let people like what they like. I think its not much of an upgrade from the s4 but s3 it is. My wife has a s3 and is upgrading in the next month. Its between the note 3 and s5.

    With "KNOX Pox" baked in, I'll skip the Galaxy S5.
    I'm on Verizon so this phone will be locked down hard. If on Verizon, if you can root you are lucky.
    Also, not much of an upgrade from my S4, or not enough of an upgrade to separate me from my cash.

    Upgrading from S2 here too. I'll be getting prime version if it becomes available.

    I currently have a Galaxy S4. Everything about this phone has really impressed me. So I have to have one!

    Again, it was my personal opinion, I am not trying to change anyone's mind
    I think the Z2 is just as good as the GS5 but the reason I am choosing the GS5 is because it has more features I like
    I also think the M8 is a really good phone, but I am sticking with the GS5
    People here get so heated quick

    Don't think I want the galaxy s5, still set on upgrading my droid razr maxx to this galaxy note 3. Just for the simple fact that I get a huge boost in ram and battery life. With all that said, I do like the processor on the galaxy s5 and the water resistance. Its all going to depend on which phone I can get for cheaper when my Verizon contract runs out.

    I'll probably get a white S5, not as soon as it releases but not to much longer after that. I'm coming from a Moto X I just purchased in February, but will keep and use both phones.

    He did say it's his opinion... Nothing wrong with that . I personally love the Note and doubt I'll go elsewhere.. Doesn't mean I won't.. But I don't plan on it at the moment.

    I will be playing with the S5 though since my brother will nab it .

    Going from the S4 to the S5. The awesome S4 will be gifted to a family member. As a volunteer firefighter, the water resistance of the S5 is a big plus.

    I'm due for a replacement this month so I'm planning on replacing my RAZR MAXX with a GS5 when it comes out. Not sure which color.
