    Default Need Help: Japanese Galaxy S5

    I'm stationed in Japan and trying to locate where and when I can buy the Galaxy S5. I've been to so many cell phone stores and nothing. Everything is Iphone. No posters or a hint of the Galaxy S5 coming out. I've searched the internet and nothing pops up on on this device. Has anyone here heard of a Japanese release date or any information on when I can buy one with a carrier. Your help is appreciated!

    Well the carriors Docomo, Au and SoftBank in japan release there phones in seasons, I don't believe docomo or SoftBank has unveiled their spring line up yet,docomo carried the Galaxy s4 so I'm sure they will carry the s5 at some point but yeah you might just have to wait until they unveil there 2014 spring line up. Hope that helps

    Appreciate the info. I just got out here and trying to hold off without a cell phone for work till the phone is released. I love the battery life of the new one and will make sure to wait..... It's a shame they don't do releases like everyone else.

    Forget the Galaxy S5, just go over to AU and get the LG isai, ( 0 yen to buy now ) it is the same as the LG G2 but comes with a micro-Sd slot

    LG has come a long way, also be prepared to spend over 80,000 yen for the Galaxy S5 as docomo will not discount this phone, also you will need to sign up for a 2 year contract.


    I got my LG isai which tops any Samsung phone for the price of 0 yen, why spend over $800 US dollars on a phone when you can spend 0 US dollars on a phone with the same specs?
