    Z10 to GS5

    Advertisement



    I’m in a position to decide what to have. Currently I am still using BB Z10 powered with an extended battery out of mpj. Great features and design, but Galaxy S5 just also looks a worthwhile phone. I do fairly happy with my Z10, S5’s waterproofing and fingerprint reader sound appealing for me, though people say a lot of the features are gimmicky. I know almost all think the dotted back design is ugly but it is replaceable ! Going to be a wait just to see more real-world review.

    Night and day. That's how I'd compare the two. Pick up the S5 and you'll wonder why you waited so long.

    BB is out of it, almost. As Roger says, if you pick up a S5 you'll come to find out why millions made the switch from BB. In actual fact it isn't the S5 that's better, it's any android phone you can pick up that does and offers more.
    Welcome to PinStack. I hope you'll enjoy being part of this community.

    Not going for a GS5 but will probably grab a Note 4 when it comes.

    Sit them both in the bottom of the pool for an hour and see which one is more beautiful.

    Cats, the S5 is water resistant, not waterproof. After an hour they'll both look messy.

    Not so fast my friend. It is waterproof. It will withstand water at a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes. I saw a test of over an hour in the bottom of a pool and in the washing machine for over 30 minutes without any harm. Call it water resistant/proof or what ever but tests show it will hold up.

    I wouldn't want to test it out. I'd rather just know that it can. I have one right now and I'm not going to test it. All the holes are still there...
