Poll: Are You Upgrading to the Samsung Galaxy S5?

February 27, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

We’ve had a little over 24 hours to sit back and think about the Galaxy S5 and what it truly brings to the table this year. Yesterday, Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 alongside the Gear Fit at Unpacked in Barcelona. And honestly, it really wasn’t anything we thought it’d be. Us, here at Android Headlines have talked about the Galaxy S5 both internally and on social media with our amazing readers and followers. We’ve heard some good things and some bad things about the Galaxy S5. But we’re left wondering, how many of you are going to upgrade to the Galaxy S5?

The Galaxy S5 isn’t a huge upgrade over the Galaxy S4, but neither was the Galaxy S4 when compared to the Galaxy S3. That’s how Samsung is playing things now. Kind of like taking a page out of Apple’s book. When you first look at the spec sheet of the Galaxy S5 compared to the Galaxy S4, it doesn’t seem like much has changed, but actually there is a lot of different things. For instance there’s a new backing. It reminds me of the Nexus 7 2012 from Google and ASUS. There’s also the waterproof feature, and the new 16MP camera, which Samsung is saying is the best camera on a smartphone right now. There’s also the slightly larger display, at 5.1-inches instead of 5-inches. So like we said, it’s not a huge update, but there are enough changes with the Galaxy S5 to warrant an upgrade, depending on what you’re coming from.

As for me, I’m probably going to stick to my LG G2 for a while. But as usual, I don’t make a decision until reviews have come out, and I get a chance to play with the phone. That’s one of the perks of this job, being able to use all the flagships before buying it. So that I’m going to hold back any real thoughts about the Galaxy S5 until I get one in-hand. But what about the rest of you? Anyone else planning on upgrading to the Galaxy S5? Be sure to let us know in the comments below what you’re upgrading from, and vote in the poll below.
