It is baffling despite Samsung's phones looking cheap and made out of plastic, the interest it generates is very high. My demand is they should go for premium look of the Htc one M8, and they will be invincible.

Samsung Galaxy s5 series without a cover is disgusting :).

Apple's design chief has been given more power in the company.

Samsung just fired its design chief of the SGS5.

What do you think Samsung thinks of its SGS5 design? I bet you it would be different to what the Samsung fanboys are thinking. lol

AnonD-105795, 07 May 2014This S5 mini + Tab S 8.4 (Amoled) are perfect combo, iKiller.Or you could get a Note 3 or a Note 4 in Q4. But I agree with you.

Samsung is cheating the market. First release the flagship then release the active/zoom series with a bulky and more ugly design. I have read somewhere in gsmarena itself that the heart rate sensor just cost 1$. Why the hell Samsung did not include the 1$ sensor in this mini variant? is it coz if theyd put the sensor, no one would opt for the flagship phone?

Samsung pls don't put Snapdragon 400 chipset... use 600 or 800

AnonD-258086, 07 May 2014yeah, you can downdload an app called instant hart rate for free... moreSo unless the comsumer has a heart rate monitor this app is pointless?

Why no Black Option?

Hah! I knew it! Selling another piece of crap naming it under the current flagship. Come on people! Be smart and just buy the previous flagship or the same spec but lower the price. Just because it's an s5, it does not mean it's close to the flagship

Amazing and innovative design as usual from samsung. Just when you thought it couldnt get any uglier they still find a way to amaze you.

Anonymous, 07 May 2014htc one m8I'm guessing he wants a phone around the current price of the S4, or the mini versions of the flagships, not the M8 price.

The M8 is also much bigger in size compared to both of those.

Also, if he's asking between 2 Samsung devices, he probably cares about the camera as well :)
