**19th September 2014 UPDATE at the end.**

I'm writing this review one week and one day after purchasing the phone from Amazon.

I rarely, if ever, write reviews of anything but I'm doing so on this occasion for two reasons; the first being that, before this, I used an iPhone 4s and the second is that paying over £450 for a phone is clearly a considered purchase for most people.

It was a fairly big decision to 'switch sides' by going from Apple to Android on a Samsung but, so far, I haven't regretted it.

I'd had my iPhone 4s since October 2011 and it was a very faithful servant to me. I certainly think it's still the best of all the iPhones. I got rid of it as it had got to the point where I was having to charge it two or, sometimes, three times per day with normal use and apps would crash as they became more processor and memory intensive so the ageing hardware was unable to cope as well as it used to.

I'm going to do this the old fashioned way and do a list of pros and cons with some comparisons to the iPhone 4s in angle brackets where relevant. Also, I will update this review again at one month and three months to see if my experience with it has changed.

So, the PROS first...

1. Speedy as hell.
This phone is rapid. Make no mistake that the hardware in this device is pretty much as fast as it gets at the moment. Various reviews will tell you that the HTC One M8 gives faster benchmarks but I've tried both of these phones in shops before purchasing and there's basically no difference. My wife has an iPhone 5c and it's much faster than that. A couple of friends have the 5s and it's also faster than that. All of my apps load and close instantly - this includes games and the camera.

WARNING: Do not buy in the EU.
I very rarely write a review, mainly as I am a loyal and happy Amazon Prime customer and many people only write to complain (guilty) but I feel that I have to write on this occasion to warn other buyers who may not be so "tech savvy" when receiving the phone. On receipt it seems to work. However, this phone comes from Hong Kong. On starting it had a Chinese language setup and then when delving into different apps, many did not work. I phoned Samsung who confirmed that the firmware version was from Hong Kong and so there would be incompatibility issues in the EU and no warranty if the phone had any issues.
The one star is for Amazon - they have agreed to refund the phone and also the parts that I bought to go with it such as the screen protector and case.
I have no problems with ordering from Amazon but they do need to check the items they are selling - please check the model number or CSC number of the phone before purchase - if you have the phone dial *#1234# and the numbers will be displayed.

The phone itself is excellent, though the USB flap can be a bit awkward if you have a case on.

However, I had to send mine back for a full refund because I was sent a phone with Hong Kong baseband firmware (G900FZHUANI2). I have read that this may mean it doesn't have a valid UK warranty.

To check your phone: "Settings" > "About device" > "Baseband version". You could also try a factory reset - although mine was in English when I took it out of the box, a factory reset defaulted it back to Chinese. A bit suspicious.

If you're not sure if yours is right, search online or ask on the XDA Developers Forum.

I'm going to do some grumbling in this review, but before I do that, I have to first say that this is a fantastic phone. I came to the S5 from a Galaxy S2, Samsung's first iPhone killer, much underrated at the time, but such a good phone that only recently did I feel the need to upgrade. I'm not going to focus on the specification, other than to say that everything you could need is there, at least a match for any other top of the range 2014 smartphones, including the iPhone 6 and 6 plus.

The positives, and there are many, begin with the screen, which is superb. It is super-sharp, and colours look fantastic, but have lost the hyper-vivid look of the S2, which not everyone liked. The phone is extremely fast and responsive, at least in this version (with the quad-core processor, not the octa-core version offered by some sellers, which is probably not quite as fast - watch out when buying).

The camera is great, starts instantly, produces great quality images and video and has various creative effects built in for those who like such things. In video mode, you get slow motion and, if you prefer the Benny Hill approach, fast motion. I hadn't expected it to be significantly better in any practical way (i.e. not effects etc) than the S2's excellent camera, but I was pleasantly surprised by just how much better it is.

As one other big, if boring, plus, the battery life is astonishing. Without doing much in the way of tweaking settings (really just turning off Bluetooth and GPS when not actively using them), but leaving wireless and the download booster turned on, and with active wallpaper, I'm currently getting about 3 days between charges.
