    Mine arrived a couple hours ago. Working on setting it up now. So far my initial impressions are very good.

    Received mine today ...... slight learning curve from the S3 :wink-b:

    I have one slight problem/dislike: the lower left on the S3 was a button that when pushed, depending on what app you were in or on the home screen brought up a list of options for that app or home screen. Now that button on the S5 is a list of places you have accessed last and the task screen. Now some of the apps I have don't have full functions without that button. Example: Chase Bank App - That button brought up Deposits, Payments & Transfers etc. but now I do not have any way of accessing them. Is this function button found somewhere else. I really do not have any use for 'where I have been reacently' but that button as a function button was much more useful to me. I am hoping it is someplace else but I haven't found it as yet ...... anyone else?

    How are you replying to this forum without it? I used the quote feature.

    I got mine and really like it, but I did like the menu button also. My Droid 4 had 4 buttons and I liked those.

    I've changed the home screen to ADW launcher and prefer that. Still have to add my widgets.

    I think you misunderstood what I am talking about ..... has nothing to do with the buttons on this forum.... talking about the buttons on the Galaxy S5 :question:

    I understood. What I was asking if posting a reply without a quote, where are you pressing? On my Droid 4 I used the menu button.

    To my surprise, I got mine yesterday a day early. Switched to T-Mobile as well to get unlimited everything. At the end of the day, about the same price as Verizon per month over the long haul.

    Anyway yeah, it's kind of weird that they turned the context menu into a long press and made 'recent apps' the default behavior. I'm used to the latter being a home button long press so this is kind of weird.

    Changing menu displays from all those circles to list mode helps... it's such a chore to scroll through otherwise.

    Here's hoping for custom ROMS soon!
