    Sucks fucking donkey balls.

    I had an S3. I couldnt wait for this phone.

    The fingerprint scanner normally requires 2 swipes (rarely does it work the first time), and it REQUIRES TWO HANDS. You cant swipe your thumb across, it has to be your finger DOWN, requiring you to either have the phone on a table, or holding it with your other hand. Think about it, if you need to swipe your index finger, the rest of that hand cant hold the fucking phone. WTF Samsung?

    I have tried twice to get the Samsung Health shit to work, both times I fill out a bunch of shit for a Samsung account, and end up getting to a point where it just says "failed". (AKA It wont let me use the app without signing up, and it wont let me sign up).

    I run with my dog. Yesterday the screen was not functioning very well with slightly damp/sweaty fingers. I did not have beads of sweat on my forehead, it was like i had clammy hands.

    The camera still sucks for closeup still shots.

    WTF Samsung?

    Ive got two weeks to return it. Im almost certainly going to. I dont give a fuck about plastic vs metal, and i fucking hate apple and their proprietary bullshit, but this phone seems to fucking suck.

    Options? HTC One M8?

    My Nexus 5 is fucking perfection. Perfect size, minimalist features with no bloat, plus it's about 1/2 the price. Boom.

    I have the Droid Maxx and I love it.
    Quad Core and has Android 4.4. HD camera, and the battery usually lasts 2 days between charging.
    Plus its Verizon and I have great 4G LTE service.

    Google is your friend. All of your problems were well documented.
    According to the reviews, it will still work great after you drop it in the toilet.

    ...IF the new htc one has the ability to use an extended life battery then yeah. the last htc1 you could not upgrade the battery that was the worst feature.

    How's the battery? The S5 is supposed to be 25% better than the S4, which was better than the S3.
