    LAME so lazy of samsung to upgrade the s4 5% better and call it s5. Now i am convince they are copying apple, even the way they conduct business. What a shame. I hope it flops, so samsung will learn a lesson.

    the design in most people’s opinion isn’t impressive (its like iPhone 5 -> iPhone 5s), two things stand out.

    1) water resistant – I think that will be adapted by all future mobile phones
    2) download booster – you can DL 1GB in less than a minute!!! that’s CRAZY!!!

    without both apple and samsung, our phones wouldn’t be this advanced, I think we should applaud them both for making the world so mobile dependent…
