US Carrier Forums Added for the Galaxy S 5 and LG G2
There comes a time in every popular flagship device’s life when it grows up, finds an attractive carrier, and it makes many carrier-branded babies… Oh wait, I’m sorry. This is XDA-Developers, not Animal Planet. In any case, the story’s essentially the same, but with a few minor modifications.
Samsung recently unveiled its next generation flagship at Unpacked 5 in Barcelona just under one month ago. And even though the Samsung Galaxy S 5 has thus far seen mixed sentiment from consumers, the as yet unreleased device earned a well deserved place in our forums.
