    Where else would you make it? China is where all the best engineers are.

    I couldn't believe it either but I ran this app just to make sure and it said made in china. Apps name was: phone info. I think north american consumers are getting the short end of the stick here. Were paying alot more than the eropeans and asians. At least they are getting the made in korea and vietnam ones.

    You do know that the S5 costs almost 800$ unlocked here in Switzerland? Paying more in the US? Don't think so.

    I'm in Savannah GA. AT&T white 16 gig. Says "made in Korea" under the battery. Can't find the word "China" anywhere on the phone or box. The power plug that plugs into the wall is, in fact, printed with "made in China" on it.

    But NOT the phone..

    Your right. What I meant to say is that I think it will cost less to make it in china than it is in vietnam. But thats just a guess. And im guessing yours is not made in china?

    Mine is made in Korea. I'm in North America. Savannah, GA, to be precise. Maybe it's just verizon that is short changing you with cheap China phones.. I'm with AT&T

    Lol Ya i forgot to mention there was a little bit of glue left on the back where the battery was placed on my s5 and I took it back to the store to show them and they just told me to wipe it off haha. Let us know about the third one once you get it.

    Its usually u relevant to where your phones are made in.

    Ummm... Phones are generally cheaper in the united states. S5 retails in India for 1,000 USD.

    Funny my girlfriend is from China and she said she can get a Galaxy S 5 knock off for hundred dollars. Thanks Verizon. I'm really surprised that Samsung is allowing Verizon to send cheap knock off phones to there customers. My phone came with a faulty Sims card, and a hair line scratch in the screen. I'm all about supporting cheap if the customer reaps the benefits. This is not the case in our situation.
