    Default Samsung finally has done something that only apple has done...

    Make a phone so good to the point everything works, no need for 3rd party apps...touch wiz is lag free I really feel know need for nova launcher, samsung keyboard emojis, swipe and predictable text is great know need for swiftkey, the camera has every feature no need for 3rd party...battery life is good know need for juice defender, browser is fast know need for dolphin, message app has it all know need for go smh or textra etc...my point is besides the music player to me nothing needs to be replaced same how apple has iPhone to the point everything just works...

    Now if I could just get the S5 to have even close to as good of reception as I got with my 5S. Now that would be awesome!

    Never had a 5s but had a 5 for a few days and I can say the s5 is the only phone that I've owned that hasn't dropped to 3g occasionally in my house and that includes the newly released m8. I don't know about you but I give the s5 a high mark on reception.

    I should have made myself clear, call reception is great! LTE SUCKS! I can't get LTE where my iPhone was not wonderful but pretty good.

    Yes I was just about to say because I'm on Verizon and I get lte everywhere my note 3 receives it. The fact that I get constant lte at my house is enough to excite me because my house seems like a deadzone for every carrier lol.

    I get the same amount of bars/reception/call quality etc on my S5 as I did on my 5s.

    Same here. My Note3 and 5s gets LTE everywhere it's available thru the Verizon network.
    Even though I prefer Nova Prime as my Launcher, I never had a problem with TouchWiz on my Note3.....Samsung got it right with the Note3 as well ...IMHO

    There's no such thing as LTE, it's a marketing gimmick.

    My wife has an Iphone, and I can't begin to tell you how many times she can get on the web, and I cant. Or she can make a call, and I can't.

    Horribly. Sense on the other hand is pretty great! I refuse to buy a Samsung phone until they get rid of Touchwiz or at least optimize it considerably.

    So the animations, transitions, multi-tasking interface, and MyMagazine are all built to be this slow?

    Swipe through the home screens and then go to the far left to my magazine. It's such a slow transition to that home screen. It's ridiculous.

    On its own it's not terrible, but next to the M8 it's slow. It might look nicer (a lot nicer), but it doesn't feel faster than the Note 3 or S4.

    It should also be noticeably faster than the Tab Pro 8.4 right? Faster SoC and a lower resolution display. Except it's not. At best it's the same.

    Outside of the My Magazine transition, how is anything else you mentioned "slow"? It doesn't stutter. The home screens have a card stack animation so it's not going to be as fast as something that doesn't. You can turn it off or switch it to the old Touchwiz animation.

    It doesn't feel faster than the S4 or Note 3? Seriously? Kind of hard to even dignify that with a response. You're reaching there. Unsurprisingly, you brought the M8 into this. Sense is slightly faster than this version of Touchwiz, but the gap from last year has closed significantly.

    As far as the animations go, they obviously feel it adds to the experience. I disagree, which is why I cut them in half. Takes less than a minute. Although if I didn't turn them off, this device still wouldn't be slow.

    Getting defensive much? I did say that on its own it doesn't seem that bad, but next to the M8 it's noticeably slower. So yeah, that's my experience with it. Same with my comparison to the Note 3 and S4. I'm not reaching, but I'm not sugar coating it either.

    You may not have noticed, but you did admit that Sense is faster. I just think you're understating the difference.

    I also brought another 2014 Samsung device into the discussion, which also feels faster, while having "slower" hardware and more pixels to push. I haven't adjusted animation speed or anything like that on any device. Care to explain that one?

    How was that defensive? I'm just amused that you believe this phone is slow. You lost my interest in this argument when you said it wasn't any faster than the S4 or Note 3. So as much as I'd like to comment on the Tab, I haven't used it. Considering your most recent track record in assessing UI speeds, I'm going to bet you're way off on that comparison, too.

    And yes, I realize I said Sense is quicker. It is. Just not by that much that I'd make a big deal about it. Hopefully that makes you feel better about your M8 purchase, which is still the inferior device between the two.

    You can "bet" that all you want. I have all three devices in front of me right now (S5, M8, Tab Pro 8.4). The UI being slower than the M8 is a fact, as I can look and see it for myself, right now, at this very moment.

    You should also realize that I have both devices, and I don't need anybody's approval to feel good about any purchases that I make. I'm not that insecure.
