Big lineups for the Galaxy S5 at UK Samsung Stores

There's one type of phone folks line up for every year, but with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 it looks like there's another. This particular photo shows the line up outside the flagship Samsung Experience Store in Stratford, London, right before the 6 p.m. availability last night. And there's a ton of people.

Folks who pre-ordered at one of these stores throughout the UK were able to go and collect their shiny new Galaxy S5 the day before general release. It sounds like the other stores experienced similar line ups, with many people eager to be first to get their hands on the Galaxy S5.

It's no iPhone line, sure. But it's still damned impressive.
