Anyone else thoroughly underwhelmed by the S5?

The fingerprint scanner is onscreen, but the buttons aren't!? Samsung logic.

Extremely underwhelmed.

Easily the most disappointing flagship release in recent memory. Just horrible, the whole look, from the back to the cheap looking 1970s grooved trim to the larger bezels. When the images leaked before the show I genuinely thought it might be one of their low end cheapo galaxies mistaken for the S5.

 

And all this after the CEO goes on record a while back talking about 'Premium' and 'Metal construction'. Just awful...

interesting to see that they've included the S4 active IP67 rating on this phone, and maybe the "premium" metal frame will come out in a S5 metal edition later in the year. but im with the rest with you guys, im very..." meh" about it, the Z2 for me stole the show so far, and it was exciting to see Nokia entering the android space (always been a fan of their hardware in the past).

I'd imagine we'll be seeing a more 'Premium' edition of the phone before too long.

 

The chipset of the S5 isn't really any better than that of several last-generation phones, so perhaps we'll be waiting for something which can provide a bump in performance before we see any S5+ version?

Looks like they've added features that everyday people want, more than what tech people want?

 

Personally I'm not so worried about plastic back, etc, as most people I know wrap their phone in a case or bumper - so you can't see the "lovely" design elements.
