    Looks like the S5 except they stuck a terrible wallpaper on the back and then sent it off to every other phone manufacturer and every one sent a review with an "F" on it and they where like "F!". Fail, fake, fucking crap...

    WAIT… the date on the galaxy doesn't match any calendar. It's says Wednesday (12) Sep, it would be a Friday this year, a Thursday last year and a saterday next year. WTF?

    Now, since George brought it up: I don't peer intensely at Android phones, but is it normal for the date to be left justified while the time is not?
    It looks like someone lazily pasted it from iOS...?

    So when the Galaxy F Upgrade comes out, it will be the Galaxy F. U.

    Lol, really? That screen was more than likely photoshopped.

    Unlikely.

     

    Samsung's big push for Q3 and Q4 will be the Galaxy Note 4.

    Although I see nothing wrong with Samsung offering a metal-case Galaxy, I sure hope they're not expecting sales to be significantly boosted by it.  The Galaxy S5 is already being offered with lowered prices and special offers and still sales are hard to come by.  Galaxy S5 sales are probably tapped out and nothing is going to increase sales except waiting a period of a year or so.  Those who bought Galaxy S4 and S5s will likely be ready to upgrade as their contracts run out.  I don't think there are enough Android users who require the power of a flagship smartphone.  As far as hardware features are concerned I would never dream that the iPhone 5c would outsell the Galaxy S5.  Samsung simply makes too many models of smartphones and it's likely confusing consumers and probably diluting sales for the more expensive Galaxy S models.  I think there's only a finite amount of smartphones that Samsung is going to sell and that's it.  Didn't they sell close to 80 million smartphones in one quarter?  There's no way they can do that consistently quarter after quarter.  I don't think any company can including Apple.  Samsung is likely drowning in their own flood the same as Nokia did.

    Samsung has been rumored to be considering a "premium" all-metal handset in the past, with the Galaxy S5 pegged to come in both plastic and metal variants. The company did not choose that route, however, instead releasing the handset with a dimpled plastic finish.Remove the physical home button, the pulse scanner on the back, and replace TouchWiz with a different launcher and that phone would start looking pretty good.  In its current form, I'll pass.

    A headline to goad derision, outrage and laughter, but the article doesn't really deliver what the headline promises.

    I know what you mean... I saw the headlines and the phrase, "Putting lipstick on a pig" was all that came to mind....

    I'm not sure if the 80 million was the the quarter they grossly exaggerated sales (even to their stockholders), or the quarter they sold 80 million phones total - including tens millions of really dumb phones. A lot was learned from evidence that came out in the last California trial... especially where they lied to the stockholders to match the public lie regarding highly exaggerated sales of their flagship smartphone.

    It's waterproof so you can slap it on a big wound like it's the bandage it appears to be.

    I wonder what the F stands for. F*ckup? F41L? Freakish? Fools? Flawed? Flop?

    So many options!

    Title lacks "rumoured".

    Nothing in the text says more than "hey, we has picture and it looks like metal".

    It looks more like a HTC One than anything.
