    So many people hate on the S5. Yes, TouchWiz is laggy. Still, the camera is amazing and the screen is superb at 431 ppi and Super AMOLED. Just download a launcher to get rid of touchwiz lag. I'm using Nova Launcher and it works great. Buy the S5!!

    I agree, no lag for me with Nova and great battery life, I like everything about it so far and a nice step up from my previous S4.

    Except for the poor build/design of the USB 3.0 flap cover. LOL Samsung finally got the S series right, lag was one of the reasons why the S4 failed and I'm very happy with the S5. It easily made me forget about the hTc M8.

    True. I bought a third party wireless charger card so I wouldn't have to worry about breaking it, but the charger makes the phone so hot I took it out. Can't be good for it over time.

    Agree. It is a all rounder. Samsung designed a big winner in terms of specs, functionality and usability. Even compared to G3 which has big following here, S5 offers USB 3.0, water resistance and Finger print scanner.

    I love the Super AMOLED 1080p HD display. This phone by far has the best display I have ever seen. The battery life is also really impressive.

    That has nothing to do with USB 3.0

    That is a function of the OEM Samsung charger has a 2.1 amp capability to charge the phone.

    I've had a 3.0A charger in my car and a 2.0A charger on my desk for several years and no previous phone charged as fast as the S5 does. there's something more going on than just a high output charger.

    From the S2 the S5 would be a very nice upgrade

    Depends on the USB cable quality and length, Samsungs USB cable indeed allow faster charging than normal USB cables.
    Also Qualcomms chipsets allow faster charging speed with QuickCharge than Exynos. Charging speed have nothing to do with if its USB 2 or USB 3 cables. It depends on quality of the cable, length and how the pins inside is alignt.

    Possibly, but the charging speed has nothing to do with charging via a usb 3.0 cable. The usb 3.0 is for faster data transfer between your device and a computer...nothing to do with charging faster. True story!

    Agreed. Can you explain about the radio thing? What is the difference? I wasn't aware


    EDIT
    oh sorry do you just mean like the european networks and the us networks? I would assume the phone was quad band though which I think means it can be used all over the world?
