    if you can`t wait then just root your S5 and instal cyanogen ROM on it. it`s going to be a far more better experience than using Touchwiz

    the only reason is the price. I think it is one of the best Android phones on the market. Hugely supported from the community since t is very popular, great camera and display, water proof etc. Touchwiz is not a problem since you can easily flash a CM or any other custom rom
    I would prefer the S5 to the 1+1 if they'd cost the same

    Other than it being ugly, not a whole lot. Touchwiz is annoying sure and the 2gb of memory doesn't help, but you can always install cyanogemod.

    If you like S5 just buy it. It's great phone with lots of community support. Fit me it's too ugly, and with this physical button same as in iPhone just ... silly, but if you don't mind buy it and be happy.

    My current phone is an S4. Prior to that I had an iPhone 4, and an iPhone 5. The iPhones rocked. Best phones I've ever had, no problems software or hardware wise. The S4, well... After a few months the battery swelled right up, could have burst and caught fire. Samsung swapped it for free after contacting them several times. They kept saying I had to go to a store, my argument was that it was explosive. Eventually they mailed me one. Then a little later I found the AMOLED display was developing burn in. Fantastic. And the shiny side is buffing off to reveal just white plastic... And I did look after it, very damn we'll. So I don't recommend an S5! I can't wait to swap my S4 with the one. :)

    I know, but S5 is way too over-priced!
