I still love my galaxy sIII so much,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S5 SIM-Free Smartphone, SM-G900F - White (Electronics)
I upgraded this phone from galaxy sIII. I still love my galaxy sIII so much. I believe it is still better for me. GS5 is a Nice product but I didn't get what I expected:-
-First of all the battery life is better than any smartphones but still it has got Ultra Power saving mode. It is said that ultra P saving mode saves a lot of power. I found it is not that much satisfactory. The battery was draining so fast even though I enabled U P Saving mode.
-Increased Touch sensitivity is not working sometimes whereas works fine sometime. dodgy..
-The camera is bulging outwards. This made me feel a bit awkward to place my phone on the table. When placing on table the camera lens comes to contact on the table at first. I spent a lot of money by searching the case that could protect the camera. I hardly found a plastic case that really protects the camera lens.
-The signal reception is dodgy too. Other phones are picking the signals easily whereas no signal on the GS5. To regain the signals, I had the restart the phone. It applies to the mobile data as well.
-The phone becomes incredibly hot wile charging. And I afraid to leave it charging unattended. But the battery charges amazingly fast.
- Phone fails to respond at least once a week. When pressing the home button. The soft UI keys lit up but the screen is all black and blank. This remains for about 15 seconds or so. I believe some secret processes takes place sometime.
- Has got really less RAM. 2GB RAM is more than 3quartes full already with pre-loaded apps in it.
-Speaker is at the back of the phone. I personally didn't like it. The sound what I felt was like on only one side of the phone. A bit awkward.
Overall the phone is good.
