The Samsung Galaxy S5

A look at some of the details

Lying flat and screen-up, Galaxy S5’s screen has broken rainbow fractals pieced together with a beautiful and sleek look, with thin, minimalist fonts for the clock and display info. Released in February at the Mobile World Congress, a new smartphone may be old news to some, but its unique features are enough to warrant a second look and a hands-on tryout.

Samsung has got the goods

With a self-described “Modern Flash” design language, adapting some Galaxy Note looks, Samsung’s new smartphone is sleeker than its predecessor, and 0.1 inches larger. The phone is waterproof and dustproof, ensuring no worries from water and less effort in maintaining its sheen. The bigger HD screen uses a biometric fingerprint sensor for added security.

The Galaxy S5 is powered by Android 4.4, KitKat and features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED Full HD display. Budding photographers out there will be delighted to know that the S5 packs a 16 megapixel camera that can also capture 4K video. There’s also a download booster with 802.11ac Wi-Fi and MIMO to make sure you’re getting the best out of your data connection.

In addition to these features the Galaxy S5 features the latest S Health technology which monitors heart rate and pulse. The battery is also available in Ultra-Power Saving Mode for emergencies which maximises battery life and limits high energy features to give you up to 20 more hours of battery life.
