Significant gaps Samsung
Many of you reading this will say that Samsung is not all done perfectly. People want to see the new design, they are tired of plastic “under the skin”. Wide frame around the screen does not cause any pleasant emotions. Members hoped to see 64-bit, eight cores. However, it is expected that the version on the basis of eight-S5 CPU will nevertheless. People crave real innovation, not incremental improvements!
However, frustrated connoisseurs can not just buy a new phone. Samsung have quite enough loyal customers.
Samsung reaping laurels Apple
Long before the advent Galaxy S5 to the general public, many people have already formed opinions about the unrepresented novelty. There were those who loved the new phone in advance and set out to buy it. Were haters. Fans always audible voice.
Nothing reminds you of this theater of the absurd?
