    I love my S4 and the S5 was supposed to replace it but I'm having second thoughts... If the Xperia Z2 comes to the US, I might just go that route.

    Pretty sure the S5 has the 801 snapdragon in it. Not the 800.

    Can any super tech explain the 801 compared to the 800? It's good to see other manufacturers out 'hardwaring" samsung (even if it's cause samsung slowed it's own progression) - as a consumer this was NEEDED hehe.

    Note 3 ~ 5s

    I have seen several specs and they all say 2GB. But one said waterproof, (including this one) and waterproof (dust proof) normally means no removable battery. Which is what has me confused. This says user replaceable battery.

    There appears to be conflicting info there too.

    The things I've read said water resistant instead of waterproof. I also wonder if it is enough of an upgrade. Some say it's just a S4s.

    Droid life had a hands on video where he removed the back cover and showed the removable battery. It think its more water resistant than water proof. I think the two words have been used interchangeably throughout all the different reviews online.
