    Hi Cam. First off, I'd like to say you are a lucky person to receive such a nice gift from your parents.

    If I were you I'd thank them twice. Once for buying you such a nice gift, and again for making the right decision on the phone itself. You won't be disappointed with the S5. The internet and especially fan sites, are are full of strong opinions and BS as you undoubtedly know. [opinion, lol] The phone is exceptional by today's standards and to the casual user it will easily go toe to toe with the LG on every level of the OS.

    Having owned both they really are toe to toe in almost every aspect. Some things I enjoyed more about the S5 and some about the G3. You're gonna love it.

    I think you got the better phone
    I had the G3 before I got my S5. After two days I returned it and got the S5. The G3 is a nice phone but I just prefer the S5. It's blazingly fast.

    Thank your parents like everyone has said and enjoy your phone to the fullest. It's nice to have parents who care independent of whatever phone you receive.

    No poor civic LOL knew it from start but again why would he's parents care about him rooting he's phone to make it he's/better? Crapwiz is the only way to slow a 2.5GHZ snap805 lta-a s5 LOL and nexus 5 witch is a year old and its still faster LOL!

    But its he's phone not he's parents and 0x1 won't void anything as Samsung's service sucks.

    I you notice a little lag, activate Developer Options and change the animation scale options to .5x or 0. If you still see lag, install Nova Launcher. No rooting necessary for either.

    While 0x1 might not void anything I think you are jumping the gun on it being "his" phone. If he isn't paying for that phone than I would bet the parents will still think of it as there phone since they are making the payments.

    OP--Good luck with your GS5. Pretty sure you will enjoy that phone.

    The Only Lag You'll Get Is The Music player. Every single android I've had lags while music playback on Google play music specifically. Other than that the S5 is the way to go!

    It's true 0x1 will void the warranty. I've have been told this several times by both Samsung as well as AT&T.

    The OP sounds like a person with his head on correctly, let him decide what he wants to do.

    You can root it with kingo root and not void?
