    Choices between S4 or S5?

    Advertisement



    I have been using Wave 2 for the last few years and I am thinking of upgrading to Android phone. My only experience of using S4 which my friend got it half year ago is great. Good stylish and fast running. Nexus 5 looks also great but it is non-removable and I relied on swapping OEM and a spare from mpj when I was using my S8530 I heard that Samsung S5 will be released soon, so my question is whether I should buy S4 or S5?

    The S4 is a great phone. The S5 should be better being the newer model. It will have better specs, a better Touch Wiz UI, better battery consumption...
    It's as simple as that.
    Welcome to PinStack. Enjoy your stay.

    Depends on whether you want a great device at a great price or do you want the cutting edge of technology. The S4 is a great device and will be at a great price as soon as the S5 drops. The S5 of course will be the cutting edge. Either way I would wait till the S5 launches.

    Um.
    S5 launched.
    If price tag difference will be more than 100$, go for S4. If less, go for S5...

    Depends where you are. We don't have it in the States yet.

    It will launch in Malaysia, March 27.
    It will arrive here in the EU in mid April. I suspect the US will get it just a little later.

    Not going to have S5 for any reason...S5 has added only a little over S4.

    Frankly I don't see that much advantage in either over my S3 - at least in any area that I would use in my daily life. I'm not saying there's no improvements or advancements, but with the way I use a smartphone they don't seem that critical.

    I have the S5 and I really enjoy it. I switched from an iPhone, but Im always an advocate of the newest devices, because they tend to have less bugs. Hope you enjoy your choice!

    Yeah, I was a bit disappointed when I first received it. I had an upgrade on my phone plan, and I ordered it before I had a chance to see it in person (note to self: always check it out in the store before ordering). Now that ive had it for a few days, it doesn't bother me as much. Plus with a case on it, I cant really see the ugly silver frame on it.

    It may not look "nice" but I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Simply because it's a damn good smartphone. I'm sure you'll make good use of it.
