Well as you are all probably aware of by now, the Galaxy S5 runs Kitkat- Android 4.4.2, however you could 'root' it to run whatever Android flavor you want.

So, you think that having gold user rank from posting many such insightful questions gives you the privilege of being the moderator of the blog? I don't think so.

You must be a real treat to live with.

I don't have a problem answering a simple question from someone; that is exactly what I did. I initially faulted CNBC since they obviously have an issue discovering 'facts' that are pretty well-known in the public domain, such as the release date of Samsung's Galaxy S5 being LAST FRIDAY and the OS as being Android. There have been many posts online, for anybody with the gumption to check, stating that since last Friday's release there have been x millions sold. Shame on CNBC for perpetuating uncertainty on the topic. And later, when you took offense to my comment that, maybe, we should choose our sources carefully, I faulted you for not taking the standard, expected step of doing, at least, a cursory search of the web prior to posting your question on a blog of any sort, just to see if, maybe, the answer is already 'out-there'. That step is just common sense. No insult intended, just trying to educate a noob. Now, I will fault you a second time for inserting yourself as the 'blog police' and attempting to speak for 'most people'; you seem to have a difficult enough time speaking for yourself.

How would I know there was anything online to check? According to CNBC they didn't even know when this product would be released yet! My statement that I don't own a smartphone would tell any REASONABLE person that I don't feel I have a good grounding in this industry, however I am a systems engineer with extensive experience in another industry. If you're of the opinion that only "experts" from INSIDE a particular industry are even entitled to POST QUESTIONS on a public blog then you're just another example of the rampant "professional narcissism" that I find so offensive. If all you're here for is to insult people and question their competence and motives then I suggest you withdraw your comments and recuse yourself from further interaction here because I think I speak for most people posting here in stating that your further presence here IS NOT WELCOME, especially if you just can't bring yourself to even feel comfortable answering questions asked by people who have acknowledged UP FRONT that they have a question they don't know the answer to! Please post somewhere else where only experts in your chosen field will be tolerated, and stop hanging around where you already have realized it's "just too much of a burden" for you to tolerate having questions asked and answered that you already know the answers for, and especially STOP INSULTING THE REST OF US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What's with the "I'm a know-it-all expert in the smartphone market even though I don't own one" and "I'm too lazy to perform some due diligence by way of the simplest of web searches before posting my stupid question" nonsense?

What's with your offensive "believe everything" nonsense? In most of their crawls they can't even spell the bulk of the words correctly! It's just if they made a point of saying they KNEW something was so you tend to give them the benefit of the doubt...

AT&T's wireless shop lists the S5 as running Android 4.4. Time to stop believing everything that CNBC runs?
