Does Oreilly plan to publish a missing manual for the galaxy S5?

Because the samsung galaxy series customizes the features and operation details for the various suppliers (T mobile, Verizon,etc) I find that the general information in the missing manual series is sometimes confusing and the feature discussed is not present or does not work that way at all. Is there some way of adressing these differences in the manuals?

  • Hello Roger,

    Thanks for your interest in a Missing Manual on the Galaxy S5, but unfortunately currently it doesn't appear as if there is a Missing Manual on this subject being planned. Sorry I didn't have better news for you.

  • Hi Roger,

    Actually, though we had not announced a new book on the Galaxy S5 at the time Paul checked (and still have not announced one yet), we were indeed working on the details of getting a revision going for the new device. Now that the device has shipped, we do intend to work quickly to get a new edition within the next few months.

    I will also pass your feedback regarding carrier differences to the author. I don't know how practical it is to cover the differences in detail within the book, but he will certainly consider this issue and address it if possible.
