Exclamation MetroPCS Galaxy S5

So YES, I'm gonna go ahead and be the basic one to post first on this topic like a hypebeast.

The things supposed to be announced on the 25th of this month in just over 10 days, and be released on all major US carriers in April-ish days, just under 3 months from now...

Seen as MetroPCS and Tmo are essentially running on the same network successfully in most of the states, i wouldnt be surprised if we got our Tmo'ish variant soon after release of the Tmo S5.

Anywho bring your leaks, speculations, rumors, wishes, estimates, and post them on here, im quite surprised noones posted on this topic yet, its always been like that since the LG Esteem to the S3, and even the S4, come on everybody lets pretend MPCS is still a shitty carrier and bring some excitement for this device, I probably wont be jumping on it since im pretty satisfied with my S4 and i did pay $603 for it back in September, and the year prior to that $554 for my CDMA white S3, but i know someone's getting this thing upon release...SOMEONE!

About as exciting as a June 1986 prediction that the Mets would take the pennant. A little here, a little there, nothing to make me wish I had waited a few months and bought one.

And you can bet that the AT&T and Verizon models will be welded shut again. (Where's the "yawn" button on this thing?)

Yes, same here waiting to know more about the +1 phone also more about the "Black Phone" from Geekphone/Silent Circle. Not too excited about the S5, Expecting to see same as the S4 with HOPEFULLY QHD. Snap dragon 805, wish they would opt for the Exynos Octa core, would be nice to see, and maybe the Water/Dust proof rumors are true.

Im also waiting to see if Canonical announces anything about Ubuntu Phones, this the phone im most waiting for.

I want to get the s5. I have the S3, the s4 never caught my attention. I'm just waiting for it to be revealed. I hope Metro gets it. I don't want to go to another company and give away my $55 unlimited EVERYTHING plan, away Good thing my S3 is still working perfectly fine.

Man you almost had the s4 before byod was past Vegas. I have no interest in Sammy hyperbeast well hype monster, I am looking forward to Sony next hype monster. There is nothing weak in smartphone space everyone has monsters in the shells.

From what I could tell the s4 was for those who had 2 and wasn't worth and upgrade from s3 which is still a monster device, and if you leave the white s3 you lose you 55 plan

Well...actually, as stated above by DirtyDee,
Youre gonna loose that $55 Unlimited plan regardless of which phone you get, as long as its GSM (dont matter if its the $29 Alcatel onetouch fierce, or a $700 Galaxy Note 3) which will by the way have to be at some point(since metro is shutting down CDMA by 2015. The only way to keep that $55 Unlimited plan for now is to stay with a CDMA 4G phone and as you can see theres not many to choose from, i'd probably say you've got the best spec'd metro CDMA Smartphone..
Youre pretty much paying to switch over to GSM, that $55 plan was designed for CDMA smartphones which at the time had more or less mediocre speeds, Now that metro has gone GSM and upgraded(invested in) their infrastructure, they're not giving you 'Unlimited ERRRTHANG fo 55 bukz' at these new improved speeds, which as you can tell are not only better but more consistent than the previous CDMA speeds that the plan was originally designed for.
Instead, they're now offering a '$60 Unlimited ERRRTHANG plan'
So, if $5 more month is too much for you, then you might wanna stay with your CDMA s3 untill CDMA shuts down, next year.

I've actually been thinking about it, and although i already knew i wasnt gonna get the S5, my next phone's probably not gonna be a Galaxy S line phone,
the reason being is that Samsung is too caught up and proud wasting their money on R&D improving their rather useless 'Touchwiz' software, They just want to make it their very own OS and think they'll actually compete with Apple, and im really growing tired of it, all this Snote Svoice Scall...Sbullshit, its all bloatware and kills your battery with useless features that simply dont work as advertised, for example look at how many sensors are on the S4, that are ONLY there because of BS Touchwiz apps and widgets, and not only do people not use them, but the ones that do find how crappy and complicated they are( they become completely useless the minute you use a non touchwiz ROM). In reality, although the Galaxy S is their flagship, and they just wouldnt drive down the price point, i guarantee you that putting less useless BS and wasting money on putting useless sensors and wasting money on these touchwiz apps, they could have more room to either offer promotional rebates to lower the price, or simply pocket more money on devices that people will just like more.

Samsung is moving away from Android, or at least they want to, theyre trying way too hard to carry out and try to optimize this Touchwiz nonsense, i even read this week that they dropped android from their Galaxy Gear 2, and are now going to use TIZEN OS on it. They're messing up bad i believe, they're just not understanding that people arent using or needing their S-BS Touchwiz garbage.

Now in contrast look at the Nexus 5(although i hate it because of its ugly design and cheap feel, i just hate LG build quality period) Its OS is out of this world, they get the best of the best, now being Kitkat, tmrw being another light smooth operating system with a shit ton of useful bult in apps and features. Look at the moto X, my friend has one and i was truly amazed, so light and full of awesomeness, backed with never ending battery life,and with this customize-able idea they got going, i really do see THAT competing with the iPhone right now, in terms of size and smoothness. BOTH phones are significantly cheaper than the s4, and perform better than the s4 in terms of functionality and user interface.

I sat down and realized, i've spent $1570 in less than 24 months on smartphones(Esteem$420,S3$550,S4$600) Although they're not investments by any means, they should give me the most bang for my buck, to maximize the usefulness of the money spent, that being said, i dont think my next phone will be a Samsung

yeah, same here. the S3 will probably be my last samsung phone unless the S5 brings something spectacular to the table as far as software and functionality.

touchwiz is good in that it opened the door for all the motion and hands free function but it just wasnt done well and they havent done much to improve upon it. either you have features that are useless or you have useful features that don't work well. the thing that kept me from springing for a 32GB nexus is they don't have the motion and voice features but is there much difference in not having those features and having them but they not work?

i LOVE what oppo did with the N1. o'click, backpanel scroll, rotating camera. thats the type of stuff i want to see. LG with the knock-on feature is also great. all samsung seems to be doing is beefing up their hardware which is simply not significant right now with software being so far behind hardware.

If Samsung spent more time improving what they have rather than slogging it into a huge pile to make the next big thing I would like them more like I don't care each phone looks the same I care that my phone lag till the next day trying to receive a call. I don't care if the screen moves with my eyes...I will never use it if its crap. The moto x looks great the moto g works smoothly lg phones are Samsung Jr. IMO leaving me with Sony who is not trying to cram as much as they can but improve in where they were lacking like the camera. While steadily improving what is good like the bravia engine

My take on this matter:
Samsung is messing up BAD trying to 'optimize' Touchwiz and its uselessness
They should work with Google to improve and truly optimize Android on their phones, THAT will increase sales and build brand loyalty and satisfaction to samsung smartphones / Thread

Moto X with the 'okay google' while its locked feature > palm, eye and BS camera editing bloatware on samsung phones

Thanks for the info, but what do you mean by they are not giving me unlimited everything for $55? And yea, $5 more a month isn't a big deal to me, but I would rather stay with the $55/month for as long as I can, or until a new phone catches my attention.

What he's not mentioning here is there is no guarantee of those rainbows and unicorns on the T-Metro side of the fence.


Not EVERYONE has a Better GSM signal than they did a CDMA one.


You really need to try a phone as close to where you'll use it as possible.

MetroPCS is holding a contest on the front page of their website giving away a few Galaxy S5's. The phone is probably gonna cost $599 or $549 with some form of a rebate. I poked around the contest rules and it said the phone had an MSRP of $599 but the same thing was said about the S4 when it came out on Metro and it started out at $549. My thoughts, I'm gonna have to read more and find out how much "crap" (crap being my opinion) is included in touchwiz and how much space we will have after the fact. Thoughts?

If you go over to Tmonews, they have an article up that someone spotted the S5 full price for $672 on the Tmobile site, its very possible if and when it comes to Metro, my guess it will be in the $649 range.

Thoughts?

T-Mobile Galaxy S5 price: $672? | TmoNewsTmoNews

Around $650 sounds about right for the Galaxy S5.

n4zty found it a few days ago Redirecting | Awesome Screenshot

taken from http://www.metropcs.com/images/opentext/NextBigThing/nextbigthingsweepstakesrules.pdf
so my guess is 599, the s4 contest was for 550 as was the s3

I really hope the price of the phone will not be close to $700. Because damnnnnn!! I will not be getting it. $500-600 is still a lot of money for a phone, but I'll pay that. Its gonna hurt my pockets tho.

I say 550 sounds about right. It doesn't seem like there is as much hype for the S5 as was for the S3 or even the S4 and that can hurt the price.

Sprint isn't treating its mvno like redheaded step children anymore getting flagship's a year after they were released? Softbank must know how to play ball in the us field

Which is what I'm waiting for. New rumors are it'll have a octa-core Snapdragon 810. Which is the rumors for the Nexus 6 also.

If the nexus 6 is sexy it will be on my radar. So far all I want is the moto X or a high end Sony phone with an unlockable boot loader

For the 5 months I've had my Note 3 so far it's been unrooted and it's the 1st phone I've had that I didn't root within an hour of getting home with it. Just don't feel the need for it. I'd consider the Nexus 6 if it was the size of the Note 4 which is probably unlikely.

last year i was eagerly waiting for the note 3. i used to show up in this forum just to read that section. somehow i ended up with nexus 5. because of specs, price point and minimal bloatware. it is my first nexus. the decision was heavily influenced from my use of rooted samsung prevail on boost. i got to use it with and without a custom rom. a decent entry level phone killed by samsung and boost bloatware. it is still working fine with only 512 MB ram.
let me just say IMO once you use a nexus, its very hard to go back to other phones. if the rumor about nexus 6 and note 4 having similar specs are true again and i can afford it, it probably will be a nexus again.

There are going to be a lot that will Say they disagree with me (and I'll wonder if they REALLY do) but you also know just how little that concerns me I'm sure.


Dee my good man, believe me, it just ain't All That.


Any strong midrange phone is all anyone really needs. Any more performance than that and they're just being geeky. I haven't been able to do one damn thing with the N4 that I couldn't have with my Spirit except wireless charging. (And yes, for me, that IS Very Nice) Still I think the inner case charging wart for the Spirit is about $20 on The Bay.


It's just like posting pics of 70 Mps. No One NEEDS 70 Mps. A LOT of a flagship is just being able to say you have it and having your fellow geeks notice it when you're out.



Factory bloat isn't So Much of a problem if you have a good amount of memory and storage to start with. Say what you will, but I Do Miss having My Metro on my phone.


Dee if you're getting a strong HSPA+ where you are now and are happy with what you have now, keep it, you'll be fine.

bruce is correct in that now a days midrange devices are still more than enough. i personally own the samsung galaxy light, its 150 bucks with lte and an sdcard (why i picked it over teh moto g. and it has teh quad core exynos cpu that i absolutely hate in it (as a dev) but its nice and for 150 bucks its a hell of a phone.

in years gone by the difference was MASSIVE but IMO many phones are over powered nowadays. we dont need 4k screens or super wyfeyes, we need better battery, better system management (i dont want to have jitters in a quad core phone thats silly). people need to stop worrying about how will this phone run in comparison to the phone by the other guy and wonder how well will your phone run with the screen on max brightness? can it last a day with heavy usage? youve managed to avoid buying an iphone just because everyone else is doing it, why bother getting teh s5 because everyone else is?

I agree on the battery Shabby.

OTOH, you can get 2 of the RavPower wireless chargers for what a major maker branded one cost, one for work, one for where you are most of the time at home.

The RavPower is about 1/2" longer than the N4 and that 1/2" is the only area on the charger where having the phone there Won't charge. It's not particular at all where you place the phone.

So for about $55 the battery issue is "solved". Everytime you set the phone down at home or work, it's charging. If there is an operational downside it's that at the reduced charge compared to a wired charger, you can't really tether and wireless charge at the same time. Tether eats up too much juice.

And, I think you can put the charger wart in Any android phone that isn't already equipped for wireless charging.

You guys are right I just got my S4 and don't get me wrong it's an awesome phone very quick and a great display but I also just bought my girlfriend the LG f6. After playing with it a little I think for the price difference if I had to do it again I might have just bought the f6.

I been feeling that way for a while my matrix HD on KitKat would run cubes around everyone else's phones note 2s would never match my atrix in fluidity and after the maxx battery I could last All day it was half of the phone at a quarter of the price of their flagship but it was more than just adequate, can't thank bliss enough for busting that boot loader its why I will try to support unlock able ones which why moto x us on my radar

Has anyone heard about the possibility of a retinal scanner for the S5 to compete with I Phone 5's fingerprint scanner?

i agree with shabby and bruce about a good midrange phone being enough. if you are into heavy mobile gaming and hi- def video only then the flagship phone sets itself apart. nexus 5 is a 400$ phone that is almost equal to note 3 in hardware specs that roughly cost 700$ (last year). being vanilla android means its more responsive. i was willing to go with it rather than note 3. i can not believe i am saying this but it is a pleasure to watch 720p videos in a 5" screen!! i gotta try it with 1080p videos. my laptop is 17" 1080P.
i saw some users who were waiting for 3 GB ram in S5 grumbling, but i have yet to pass 1 GB mark on nexus 5.
if you want to be geeky (having a flagship phone ) without breaking the bank, nexii are hard to beat.

Yall will enjoy this.

Mr. Slow Adopter here .

Just last weekend I shot the first phone vid I've ever shot. In HD 1080 even and zapped that puppy to Das You Tuber[1] Full HD in and out on a phone, a $200 phone, does ROCK! (It actually came out pretty good too.) While the actual viewing area of the N4 is a hair shorter than the Spirit, the N4 has a noticeably wider screen which also helps.

[1] Hey, it's not Every Day you get to shoot footage of a cattle drive going down your town's Mainstreet, even if that town IS Slocala. Plus I was close enough that Trigger brushed my arm as he trotted by.

Woah wait, whats all this bashing on flagship phones?
Dont get me wrong although some of the points said here are somewhat valid. I just cant stand when people just bash on a state of the art device with the latest technology(even if its an unpractical dick hair counter recognition sensor) just because...just because, well if i gave that same exact person that same device for free, they'd have completely different things to say about it, in fact, it would all of the sudden be 'the shit' and that same person who looked for a thousand and one negative things to say about it, would find a thousand and two good things to say and brag about the device he now owns... The point im making here is that:
1.) The phone is a good phone therefore i would like to own it,
and
2.) I can afford the phone and i will buy it since i want it
Are 2 completely different and independent ideas, and should be treated as such...

A phone isnt 'good' because you own it... you own it because its a good phone and because you could afford it and obviously liked it enough to choose it considering all other opportunity costs(Phones).
Similarly a phone isnt 'bad' because dont own it. You dont own it because you either cant afford it, or you simply chose another type of phone that you liked more, or a combination of both.
Point in case is just dont become this 'hater' of something in this case a phone just because you dont have it... 'hate' or more like dislike it because you really do dislike the actual device, and if i went to give you the phone at no cost you'd either turn it down or take it just to turn right back around and flip it to buy the device you truly want.

Thats like me sitting here whining and bashing on a South beach condo just because i cant afford it...then the minute i win the lottery it magically stops 'sucking'... No, if im gonna sit here and bash on a south beach condo its only valid if i genuinely hate Miami weather and cant stand all the population so if i won the lottery that would be the last place im buying real estate period, thats a valid argument, a valid reason to bash on something..

you just cant hate from outside of the club if you cant even get in...or you could.. but you'd look like an idiot while youre at it.

A phone's a phone and its gonna remain to be that same exact device and have all of its features, and just function...independent of whether you like it or not...if you can afford it or not...if you can use it or not...or if it gets outdated or not, thats what it comes down to.
I'll take valid criticism and bashing from the guy who bought the S4 and wasnt satisfied with the screen size so he got the Note 3, but realized it was too big for him, then got the iPhone 5S because everybody likes apple, and then hated it and bought the Lumia 1020 just for its camera, didnt like interface and ended up buying a used 2 year old Galaxy Nexus and fell inlove with it and never looked back...He would be one to talk shit about owning flagship phones and just being so unsatisfied and butthurt towards owning one...

Find whats best for you and stick with it and that applies to everything smartphones, mobile providers, cable providers, even a wife.
if you cant afford a $600 phone then you cant afford it... but that within itself doesnt make the phone a 'bad' phone.. that simple

Do you need 4K screens, octa-core processors, and 14 Megapixel cameras?
if you do then awesome grab yourself the phone that best suits your needs and go on with your life, if you dont then same thing...just find whats best for you and go on with your life...if its not for you for whatever reason then its not for you...nothing bad with that. But dont be so quick to bash and judge the guy with the latest phone when he can easily turn back around and laugh at your mediocre spec'd phone from last year, or last quarter or last month

Technology moves quickly....yes its all a business...they just want your money...spend it wisely....find yourself whats best for you...what you need...what makes you most satisfied....so you dont end up butthurt on an online forum bashing on a phone you've never even owned...with an inferior phone in your pocket.
