    Samsung's launch of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A has made a lot of Galaxy S5 customers confused. We've covered the differences between the LTE-A and the standard Galaxy S5 extensively, and many wonder why Samsung would leave features like a 2K display out of the final product that's being sold in the US. Samsung initially confirmed that it would leave this LTE-A variant for the Korean market, but new rumors seem to point otherwise. The user manual of the Samsung SM-G901F for the EU has been leaked, and everything seems to point to this device being an LTE-A Galaxy S5. Now that said, this is not the ...

    We're pretty much done with the Galaxy S5 by this point, right? We got the GS5 proper, we got the GS5 Active, we got the GS5 mini, and those lucky folks in South Korea even got the tricked-out GS5 LTE-A “Prime” edition. But surely, that must be it, right? Anything from here on out's going to be something new like a Galaxy Alpha or Galaxy F, and in just a couple weeks, it's going to be Note 4 this and Note 4 that... isn't it? Apparently the proverbial fat lady has yet to take the stage for her encore performance, as word comes in this evening that we could have one more Galaxy S5 ...

    A quad HD smartphone display, like the kind we find on the LG G3 or new Galaxy S5 LTE-A edition, has the obvious benefit of packing a heck of a lot more pixels than a 1080p component. And simply by nature of being the latest-and-greatest, its presence on a phone is going to attract a lot of attention from spec-focused, technically-minded shoppers. But once you get past the novelty of a screen with such incredible pixel density, are there other real benefits to be found? In the case of the GS5 LTE-A's display, that answer looks to be “yes,” as testing confirms some substantially ...

    How do you sell the smartphone buying public on the idea of crazy high-res quad HD displays, putting even 1080p to shame? Ever since the idea of such panels on phones was first rumored, there's been a pretty active debate over the value of quad HD screens, balancing promises of increased clarity with concerns about battery life, performance, and cost. By now, it's clear that the industry has elected to move forwards with quad HD phones, bringing us handsets like the LG G3 and Samsung LTE-A Galaxy S5. But can these OEMs convince shoppers that quad HD phones are ones they need to seek out? ...

    There are folks out there who don’t have the time for a ten-minute video or a 3,000-word review, and they certainly don’t have an hour to absorb a meandering podcast (no matter how many awards it’s won). These people might be sneaking a quick YouTube fix on a bathroom break, trying to make a point to a rival smartphone owner at a bar, or even standing in line at a wireless retail store, waiting to make a purchase. They need the facts delivered quickly, with a minimum of window dressing and a firm conclusion in as little time as possible. For them, we’ve created the 60-Second ...

    While we don't consider the Galaxy S5 a particularly tough act to follow, we didn't think Samsung would try to one-up itself so soon after its launch (historical precedent aside). Nevertheless here we are: not even three months after the original Galaxy S5 hit store shelves, a revised version with a more powerful processor, more memory, and a higher-resolution display is upon us. Its official name is the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, but others have taken to calling it the "Galaxy S5 Prime." If that doesn't sound right to you, you're not alone: there's considerable confusion surrounding the Galaxy ...

    It hasn't even been a week yet since Samsung announced its first major Galaxy S5 refresh, outfitting the flagship Android with a Snapdragon 805 SoC and bumping up the display to feature a quad HD panel for the phone's release to support high-speed LTE-Advanced networks in South Korea. But all those internal upgrades aside, the phone still looked very much like the GS5 with which we're familiar – same divot-ridden rear panel its predecessor launched with. Now it looks like the LTE-A GS5 is getting yet another update, as we receive word of a special edition of the smartphone, bringing it a ...

    Those of you who bought the Galaxy S5, we're sorry to say that you no longer own Samsung's most powerful smartphone. The Galaxy S5 LTE-A, which leaked out just recently, is now reportedly official. The S5 LTE-A upgrades a bunch of specs a lot of us felt Samsung fell short on with the original S5 -- the processor, screen resolution, and RAM allocation have all been given significant upgrades. Let's run down the specs. The same 16MP rear-facing camera is employed by Samsung for the S5 LTE-A, coupled with a 2MP front-facing companion. The 2800 mAh battery is also carried over from the S5, as ...

    We've heard it an innumerable amount of times by now -- an upgraded Galaxy S5 is coming. Whether it may be the Galaxy F, the Galaxy S5 Prime, or the Galaxy S5 LTE-A is still up in the air, but it's certainly looking like the third one will be made public shortly. New reports from multiple South Korea-based outlets suggest that Samsung is preparing the device for launch. The Korea Times states that South Korea's major carriers are preparing to roll out an updated LTE-A network supporting theoretical downlink speeds of up to 225 Mbps, as opposed to last year's 150 Mbps. Samsung will ...
