    How does the 22mm thickness feel like in your trouser pocket? Considering most phones now are less than 10mm thick.

    At first you will still be able to feel it, but after a while you will not notice it anymore.

    Just like TVS in a showroom, Once you bring it back home, you will not know the difference

    Thanks, it works something like a spot meter that gives you real time visual of your exposure

    did you manage to try playing a full hd video on it? it may be a hexa-core, but the specs doesn't look like it can handle a modern high resolution vid...(not that i know much about specs)

    Sounds good. I had the galaxy cam (first generation) and it was a really tight squeeze into my front pocket.

    No I did not, I only had a few days with it, as much as I know there is a dual core 1.7ghz and a quad core 1.3ghz, this is used for power savings by switching to the quad core for normal stuff and to the more powerful 1.7ghz dual core for intensive processes.

    I would not want to shoot in raw on a mobile phone camera, i would use my DSLR if i wanted that level of quality
    I don't expect the images from a mobile phone to be able to compete in image quality with a DSLR, the right tools for the right job

    I do not have experience with the S5 and did not notice the feature, but I know that it is running KitKat and you can download the google camera app that can do that

    The cucumber slices in the K Zoom shot looked fresher and crispier.

    It could have been a slight change in position of the plates, and hence the lighting.

    Yum, nevertheless.
