Galaxy S5 Prime review, custom Moto 360, luscious new Lumias & more! | Pocketnow Weekly 103 (Hangout)
Galaxy S5 Prime. Galaxy S5 LTE-A. Galaxy S5 SUPREME. Whatever you call it, we’ve spent the week getting to know Samsung’s most polarizing Quad-HD flagship, and we know you’ve got questions. So we’ve got our review unit all charged up and ready for an on-air “live Galaxy S5 Prime review” of sorts, along with some compelling Samsung topics a few eager readers have already sent in, on today’s Pocketnow Weekly podcast!
But there’s more to life than Samsung, so we’re mixing in a whole lot more mobile tech talk for your expectant eardrums. We’ll cover HTC’s newest financials, Lenovo’s obscene production targets, Motorola’s drool-worthy Moto 360 promises, and the next rumored devices from the land of Lumia! And as if all that weren’t exciting enough, we’re also kicking off our first-ever sponsorship with this episode, thanks to the good people at Swappa!
If that sounds like way too much to squeeze into one podcast, well, as Billy Joel says “for all I know, you may be right.” Come see how it goes, and bring your participation spirit! Join us at 2pm Eastern (click here for your own local time) for Pocketnow Weekly 103, and shoot questions to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com if you just can’t bear to wait for the Q&A. See you then!

Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime review is up!
Jeff writes in with an apt question on our Samsung-centric week:
I’ve been doing some phone shopping, and it seems everywhere I go the sales dudes are always pushing the Samsung devices. Do they make more commission or something with the Samsung products? I’ve been to Verizon, Best Buy, Walmart, T-Mobile, and some others and the story from the sales peeps are always the same. According to them if you want the best camera, Samsung. If you want the best battery life, Samsung. If you want the best display, Samsung. Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! What gives?
Pocketnow is killin’ it!

A segment about tough choices. On this installment: what if you had to carry a Samsung smartphone as your daily driver? Which would you choose, and how would you make the most of it?

It may just sound like a ringtone to you, but our transition music track (“Radiation”) is a real song, from a real album, by a real artist: Ali Spagnola. You can download that album, along with many others, at Ali’s website here, visit her YouTube page here, and follow her on Twitter here!
Thanks for listening! See you next week!
