    I skipped on the S5 cause it wasn't enough to jump of note 3. I did however ordered the S5 active and should have it on Monday. Its got 14 days to let it convince me it's worth keeping :)

    Phone is OK, not as rugged as I thought.

    Camera lens is raised a little higher and could be prone to scratches and If phone is laid face down there really isn't much to protect it. A bumper case could fix this but the point of getting this phone is so I can use it without one lol.

    Going to give it a few days and see if it will grow if not back it goes and I'll stick with Note3:)

    Got mine 2 days ago and very pleased. Am a Moto fan but made the plunge. Very nice screen. The only thing so far is ring volume-very low. I tried Volume+ with no effect. But then I turned the S5 and when back on, volume was good. Bottom line: very happy. No regrets.

    I've had my S5 for 2 months - had an S3 previously... definitely glad I waited as I was considering switching over to the HTC ONE

    Anyone here use a Screen Protector?

    Congrats Spencer! My other half uses Verizon's tempered glass screen protector and loves it. It was only 18 bucks from Verizon with our employee discount. Regularly 28 I think.

    Hi droids! First of all I have to tell you, that today I registered here, and I like this forum, is great!
    On Topic: I received my S5 two days ago, and from the beginning I fell in love with it. Before it I owned a I9300 which was one of the best phones I had. I shot about 50 pictures with the S5 in those 2 days, and the most of them were in a very poor light, but the details left me speechless. I find more attractive the capacitive key that sends you to the apps that are kept in the RAM memory than the menu key. The heart beat sensor works fine (I couldn't compare it with a professional tool) but pretty much works as I expected - well. I don't use the finger print scanner, because is a pretty big phone, and I unlock a lot of times per day, and when I receive the message: "Please swipe the entire pad" I lose time and I hate it.
    Here you have two pictures, one shot in the low light, and one with the outdoor light, which comes from behind the building.

    My only question is: I live in Germany, and I ordered the phone from 1und1 network. But when I received the pack and opened I saw that I have the USB 2.0 data cable and not the USB 3.0 which should come with it. What cable did you received and where do you live?

    P.S. I'm sorry for bad English, but is not my native language.
