Samsung Galaxy S5 Introduction

The Samsung Galaxy S5 has a fingerprint scanner built into the home button so only you can access your device. There's also built-in fitness software and a heart rate monitor. It's the best phone around at improving your health. The battery inside the S5 is 2800mAh in size, giving 21 hours of talk time and up to 390 hours of standby time. The processor is a top of the range quad core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801, excellent for gaming. The 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen automatically adjusts to different lighting conditions. On the back is a 16MP camera and on the front is a 2MP one.


The Galaxy S5 keeps that familiar Samsung look which means not much has changed compared to previous models. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a more solid phone than the Galaxy S4. Thanks to the wider back and the grippier, pock-marked battery cover the phone looks well-packaged.

Key Features:

  • The Samsung Galaxy S5 is furnished with a 5.1-inch 16M-color 1080p Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen.
  • Galaxy S5 is motorised by a Quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU, and 2GB of RAM.
  • The phone is pre-loaded with Android OS v4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UI.
  • It is equipped with a 16 MP ISOCELL camera with phase-detect autofocus, 1/2.6" 16:9 sensor and LED flash and a 2 MP front-facing camera.
  • The phone has a built-in storage of 16GB, and a microSD card slot.
  • The S5 is powered by a removable Li-Ion 2800 mAh battery.

Interface & Performance

Inside the Galaxy S5 is the kind of high-end specs you would want to have in a flagship mobile phone. The interface of the S5 improved a lot over S4. The handset has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor which is quad-core but clocked a little higher at 2.5GHz and is accompanied by 2GB of RAM. 
In Geekbench 3, this elegant smartphone scored 926 points in the single-core test while 2869 points in multi-core test.

Camera & Screen

Despite several rumours of having a 5.25 inch screen, the Galaxy S5's display is only marginally larger than the Galaxy S4's. Nevertheless, the super AMOLED display looks brilliant at number of levels and it offers excellent viewing angles.
The camera is one of the powerful features of Samsung Galaxy S5 as it offers 16 MP quality to take snaps. Real time HDR mode lets you see how your photo can be enhanced before shooting.
