Just this week, I got my grubby little hands on a Samsung Galaxy S5. Gleefully, I installed my SIM card - a real struggle if like me you have a nano SIM and use an adapter - and I set it up full of hope and excitement. For once we have a Samsung device with more than passable plastics on the back. The black model I have actually looks quite nice and I like the way the new back feels. So yes, we were happy with the faux leather of the Note 3, but unlike our first impressions from MWC, we are even happier with the way the S5 feels.
Almost straight away though I noticed a problem. For a highly specified devices like the S5, it just doesn't feel fast. Compared to the HTC One M8, it actually feels a bit slow and I am getting weird hang ups and laggy transitions. I wondered if I had a problem and I am going to reset the phone to double check, but reaching out on Twitter put me in touch with a few people having similar issues. I decided to put together a very quick video highlighting one of the performance issues, specifically how slow the device is to respond when pressing the home button.
Do you have a Galaxy S5 and are you having any issues with performance?
