    If you go to best buy's website you should see a link for GS5 pre-orders. If you go to that link and scroll down, you will see a "Take a Sneak Peak" section. It has a pulldown where you select your state and it will then tell you which stores have them.

    According to an email I received they're also offering $10 Giftcards when you preorder and buy the Galaxy S5. That being said they appear to have it for $30 over retail compared to AT&T so you would need to price match as well.

    You can check to find out what stores are participating. Sadly, yet not surprising at all, Oklahoma isn't participating.

    Just got back from Best Buy and played with the S5 and a Gear Fit for a bit. I really like both. S5 feels solid in the hand and the back is much better. I was worried it would be too big for me but I don't think it is going to be. Fit felt pretty neat. Really light and the screen is vibrant.

    Also, really liked the new look of TW. Much better looking in my opinion.

    Just played around with it at BB as well. Echo comments by dgravo. Much better overall phone. Truly think they hit the mark. I pre-ordered a white S5. from AT&T after I saw the phone in person. They said the other colors wont be available for at least 30 days of initial launch

    I just tried the GS5 at Best Buy. Back feels much better than GS4, it adds grip. For me, there was no noticeable speed bump from the GS4. Screen did look better than GS4, but not worlds better, just an iterative bump. TouchWiz much improved, menus make more sense. Didn't try the camera. Speaker seems weak, especially compared to HTC One. Could be important if you use your phone as a speaker phone, which I do. I guess I was expecting to be blown away, but I really wasn't.

    Saw the S5 as well at a local BB. I liked the back much more than I thought I would...better than the ultra shiny one of the past.

    Phone seems smoother and less laggy.

    The only negative I saw is that when you're in camera mode, the video looks cooler (bluer) than either the S4 or the Note3. Of course it has 4K which is a big selling point for me, but the screen is definitely tinted cooler than it used to be (at least in camera mode).

    Just got to play with the S5 at BB. Wow. It feels even better than I thought it would. Will read user reviews about the HTC next week but I am 99% sure the S5 is a slam dunk against the new HTC.
