    Holy cow, I just tested my phone with AnTutu and it scored 47,838... :D
    Now I feel bad for not believing the guys who scored over 45k and said they haven't done anything to the phone. :(

    Totally get that £300 upfront is a lot to swallow, however if you can do it, it can save £££ in the long term.

    Hey guys,

    So after fiddling around with the new gadget. I've noticed the speakers are far louder than that on the S5 and the position of them (on the bottom and not the back) is far better for listening to music! :) The image isn't as sharp on the OPO as it is on the S5 though, and that's something I noticed straight away watching Netflix etc and the camera on the S5 is better. The little rattle I get with the lens is something I'll get over.

    Ultimately, this is one sexy phone, it looks and feels good in the hand and the accessories look great (although European/UK plug adapters don't take much to slip out which can sometimes leave you think you're charging it when you're not). The voice recognition seems slightly less understanding than that of the S5 but hardly noticeable (but it's faster than the S5 at processing it and writing it out when composing messages etc). Cyanogen is great!

    Overall I would say the S5 slightly edges the OPO as a phone if price is taken out of the equation. But OPO wins hands down considering the price difference!

    Hope all I said makes sense, haha.

    Nice review. Thanks for update. I haven't got an S5 but I'm sure I'll compare it to the million other phones I have! :)

    I think you are running Antutu 5, which gives much higher scores.
    They were running Antutu 4, but they must have done something to it.

    Wow. Can you actually tell the difference in sharpness?
    401ppi vs 432ppi is unnoticeable, to me at least

    I would expect it the over saturated colours and brightness on the S5's OLED that makes it look that way?

    I did notice the difference but I can see how some people wouldn't. For the price difference, the 401ppi is preferable :)
