    I'm going to jump my note, the ultra battery mode has me wanting. I'm also trying to get into one phone (I have a huge phone and a tiny phone) - I think I gear towards the 5 inch size a little better.

    Note 3 ~ 5s

    took advantage of the BOGO, replacing the wife's Razr and my Razr Maxx HD with S5's. Mildly pissed at Verizon at the moment though, will deal with them tomorrow.

    Congrats to you and everyone who is getting the S5! Been there done that with Verizon more times than I would have liked. We stick with VZ because they give the best coverage for us here.

    That's been my debate for quite some time. Right now the S5 wins out because I figure I've got my N7 for the times I want a little larger screen.

    In June I'll be upgrading from my RAZR HD Maxx. So tired of this phone. Both of my motos have been great for the first year and then turned into bricks as time went on. Not to mention the sub par cameras

    If you like your S4, you should love the S5.

    It is a great upgrade from the S4. You won't feel like you got a new phone. Take the S4 strip away some of the gimmicks upgrade the speed and fluidity along with a better camera, water resistance, and screen and you basically have it. This was a huge step up without feeling lost

    Well I've finally decided to get rid of my iPhone 5 and I've ordered a GS5. The last android I had was the original razr and I was very disappointed. Hopefully the GS5 doesn't disappoint.

    It's nice so far, not "over the top amazing" but it's exactly what I wanted in most aspects.

    Best of all I'm down to one phone work Google voice doing its thing ☺.

    Well I'm not getting a 5 now. Just in a week's time waiting for my other sons upgrade date Verizon did away with buy one get one free for $200. Even though the store rep told us the deal would be going through May. Well my s4 has been flawless so I really couldn't swallow paying $200 each. So I went to best buy and picked up 2 more s4s for $50 each. My son got one and ny wife got the other which will be a huge upgrade from her iPhone 5. My other son got her 5. He is a big Apple fan.

    Not all a loss for me. The Verizon rep told us that an iPhone 4 that we had laying around they would credit us $100 for it. So I ended up getting LG 8.3" tablet 4g Lte for $100 out of pocket.

    I've owned tons of android phones and I always end up going back to an iphone. I'm hoping that this S5 keeps me from returning to Apple again. The thing I love about the iPhones are just how smooth everything operates whether it be a built in app or a downloaded app. The thing just never slows down. That's been a major issue I've had with androids. Hopefully all that has been worked out since my razr lol.

    My Motorola's seemed to get slower overtime but our galaxy S4's have been solid performers. My wife just got rid of her iPhone 5 to goto the S4. S5 should even better. She liked her old droidx better than her iPhone.

    We are Apple fans. We only use Apple computers at home. But,the iPhone and its IOS doesn't compare to android and Samsung. The build quality of the iPhone is great and the iPhone was the 1st smart phone as we know them today but they just aren't as intuitive or featured filled as most android phones.
