That's true for all tech. Months (sometimes weeks) later your top of the line, cutting edge device is already outdated. It is not obsolete as it still does everything you want it to.

I am still rocking my Nexus 4 and actually do not feel the need to upgrade it based on performance. I would like more storage, longer battery life, a better camera and perhaps (inevitable at this point) a bigger screen.

How are you guys liking Samsung Galaxy devices? I hear mixed things, but mostly that they have a lot of unnecessary bloat that causes them to lose some performance. I am debating between the Note 4 or Nexus 6 or maybe the Z3.

True, still using my S4 and it's hardly feeling out of date. Now my Touchpad however, that's feeling out of date, mainly because newer games on it tend to lag, oh well the firesale price was hard to beat and it's still a great internet browser.

Look at Apple who releases an iPhone and iPad only onceper year. Theres also Sony and HTC I think release only one flagship device per year. Nexus is only launched once per year. Moto X is launched once a year. Samsung however launches the S5 then the S5+ just like their tab pro, note, and s. Honestly, this just causes consumers to be confused and more willing to go to other manufacturers.

So all you're getting is an 805 instead of an 801? What a joke.

I agree I think it is excessive, but again with these devices you should expect that. Samsung just has the money that they can throw a million devices at us and hope some stick. Can't knock them for always trying to improve and adjust to meet the changing market.

They might as well just introduce the S5 LTE-A to North America and other regions if it hasn't been sold by vendors outside of Korea yet.

1080p on handhelds is already over 300 dpi, you don't need any higher than that.

You don't need any higher than what cell phones had ten years ago.
I hold most of my mobile devices about a foot away from my face, at that range I could use something as high as 900DPI.

Cell phones will eventually have 4K screens. http://www.overclock.net/t/1472137/forbes-why-mobile-could-be-the-primary-driver-of-4k-experiences
Mobile displays will be much cheaper to produce both from an economy of scale standpoint and since they're just plain small, it's actually the best way to get the most 4K displays into the market quickly.

They hoping some one might accidentally buy it because of "plus" in its name, thinking it's an iPhone for cheap.
