Processor is dumbed down in Straight Talk version. You get a quad core processor instead of octacore. I see they will also have the Straight Talk s5 in 64gb version on cyber Monday for $149. Though both only get a quad core processor. Amazon Motorola G 4th gen is probably a better buy or a LeEco phone.
Real downside is that you have to deal with Straight Talk's incompetent employees and lies. When I activated a phone with them, they assigned a number that was 2,000 miles away. When I called to request a local number, the B----- who sounds like she lives in India starts to lecture me about US geography and how area code doesn't matter cause everyone has unlimited long distance (WRONG). If that weren't bad enough, they shut off my internet cause they felt I used too much data after 1.5 GB, even though they advertise Unlimited. But this was prior to the massive class action lawsuit so maybe they've changed. But I'm never giving those scoundrels my business again.
