    “Powerful, weather-proof, feature-rich, and lightweight. Is this what the Galaxy S5 is all about?”The S series of premium Android smartphones from Samsung have managed to garner a cult fan following over the years, something that only the Apple iPhone could boast of earlier. Each iteration in the S series has offered a mouth-watering blend of performance and features, becoming extremely successful globally despite the criticism most devices i...

    Pros: • Great display• Good battery life• Sturdy build and IP67-certified• Good performance• Amazing camera• Integrated heart rate sensor and biometric fingerprint reader

    Cons: • Pricey• Lacks premium feel because of its plastic body• Using the fingerprint scanner to unlock requires patience and multiple attempts

    Verdict: Now here comes the difficult part –  summing up everything about the Samsung Galaxy S5 in a few words. To begin with, the Galaxy S5 is a reasonably good-looking device with a host of innovations done on the on the features and functionality side o...

    The Samsung Galaxy S5 is official - and it`s not what we expected. Rumors got a few details right, but not the whole picture, obviously. After so many updates and sequels to the S4, it`s perhaps not all that surprising that the S5 feels like a small step forward. The screen grew up only a bit and it kept the 1080p resolution rather than going to QHD. The camera does, however, record UHD video - Samsung`s initial information was for 1080p, but we ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S5 can be defined by one word: evolution. The camera has evolved to give clearer, faster snaps. The fitness-tracking abilities of the S5 are enhanced over the Galaxy S4 by packing in a more powerful S Health app and a dedicated heart rate monitor on the rear. A fingerprint scanner adds to the most secure Galaxy phone ever made. The battery is larger, the screen bigger and brighter, the processor quicker and the design altered. ...

    Pros: Amazing screen, Great battery life, Hugely powerful,

    Cons: Creaky design, Unnecessary heart rate monitor, Slow background de-focus,

    Verdict: Powerful, competent and with a whole new UI, it`s a shame that Samsung hasn`t progressed further with the look of its new challenger....

    With a 5.1" 1080p screen, 16 MP camera and 2 GB of RAM, the Galaxy S5 might not be the utmost specs beast that the Android world has to offer, but it comes with plenty of new features, both in comparison with its predecessor, the S4, and when measured up to the other flagships. The heart beat sensor, for instance, is unique for the Galaxy S5, while something like the Finger Scanner can also be observed on the iPhone 5s, but in a rather different ...
