    I wish the review talked about battery life but this review really solidifies my decision to pick the S5.

    Ya me too but I think he said the unit they were using wasn't final so I guess it makes sense for them not to comment.

    I still don't know if I want the Note 3 or S5. I really liked the Note 3 but the S5 has some advantages over it.

    I gave up my Note 2 for the GS4 because the Note was too. So this is a no brainer for me.

    The part about the awesome .25 second auto focus sealed the deal.

    I was not a fan of the Note 2. Slow piece of hot garbage with a 2 hour SOT. Hated that flimsy piece of crap. I took the risk and bought the Note 3 and it was a billion times better. The Note 3 is better than the Note 2 in every conceivable way.

    Nice review, I just hope that the fingerprint scanner works better than advertised, because this review makes it look pretty bad.

    Yeah I have high hopes for the finger print sensor. In theory it has plenty of functionality that I find useful, until I purchase the S5 I won't get a chance to see first hand how it works since all the demo models block the feature.

    I'm really hoping Samsung didn't pull an HTC and just threw it on so they could say that they have one like Apple. I hate that about Samsung and other Android OEMs. Put in the work and make it awesome like Touch ID.

    And what I hate even more is the entire world thinking a feature is a must have just because Apple did it...

    So apparently the scanner somehow never works and that's all we need to know, lol.

    Annnnyways, good to hear the camera is great. I held a unit at my local company store a few days ago and agree it feels great in hand, moreso than the Note 3 even. Dare I say I might go case-less with this.

    Agree. As much as I like Apple this is true.

    Yeah honestly if I was Sammy I would have just tried something else like improved facial recognition or something. Or at least focused on it less. I feel like the ads are going to make a big deal about fingerprint scanning and less of a big deal about more important differentiating features like water resistance.

    This is a great review. Has all but sold me. My contract is up this July and I might just take the plunge - part of me wanted to wait to see what Google and Motorola is going to offer, but I have a strong feeling I may stick with Samsung this time. The camera looks very impressive and that's a big deal for me, and I just know Google and Moto aren't going to catch up even if they make their cameras substantially better than last year's.

    This is a solid phone. I don't understand all of the hate. I think it's unfair and unjustified.

    It's insane. There is no chance I'd be choosing my next phone based on whether it has a fingerprint sensor. I will certainly factor in the camera and water resistance though. Features that affect real life usage.

    I'm pretty sure they will focus more on the water/dust proofing, that's what they did with the teaser video.

    A front facing IR camera to allow for facial recognition in low light or even darkness would have been way more useful than a fingerprint scanner.

    I think the S6 has been chance of including an iris scanner, which would be ideal. I think they wanted one in the S5, but it wasn't good/cheap enough to be practical.

    It might come in the Note 4, it was to immature at the time of the S5 reveal.

    Very surprised the review didn't mention 4K video. That's big IMO.

    The S5 camera sounds top notch. Probably headed this way now instead of the M8. 👍

    There's nothing you can really do with 4K now though.

    You can record in 4k, transfer it to your computer and pull out 8mp images from the footage.

    I guess. Not something I plan to do but I guess it's cool for people that want to.

    Yeah it isn't something I would do either but I have seen it mentioned on multiple forums and in theory it should work well.

    Ya I think the camera in the normal shooting mode will be enough for me.
