Samsung Galaxy S5 screen On

 

 The Samsung Galaxy S5 features an impressive array of applications treasure by any user.

 

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a powerhouse of a phone boasting some of the best tech available in phones today. Upon first glance, the untrained eye might not see much of a visual difference between Samsung’s newest offering and the S4, or anything else in the Galaxy line for that matter. The exterior of the phone also features a hinged charging cover, a slight hint to the water resistance of the phone, allowing it to be completely submerged for prolonged periods of time. It might not have a fancy all metal shell like other high-end phones (which, I find the Galaxy’s dotted rear shell easier to hold), but it’s on the inside that it’s absolutely packed with tech.

With a 5.1” screen and a 1080p display, everything looks vibrant on this phone. The rear camera is a 16mp unit, with selectable focus and what I think might be one of the brightest LEDs on a phone for the flash. It also happens to be able to record videos in 4k resolution, which considering the vast majority of people don’t even have a display capable of 4k makes it a tad useless, but still a pretty cool feature that will likely appear on many more phones in the future. As far as the front facing camera goes, it still is a 2mp unit that records 1080p video, which is very respectable in itself...

 

 

Powering the S5 is a 2.5Ghz quad core CPU, and an Adreno 330 GPU. With all this beefy computing power, the 2800mAh battery manages to give this phone exceptional battery life, especially considering the size of the display that it has to power. Specs give the phone a 390h stand by time, 21h talk time and 67h of music playing time. From my usage of the phone, I’ve found that I can get a full day’s usage while rarely ever getting as low as the teens in percentage, and that’s with talking, texting, loads of internet usage, and even games over an entire day. The supplied charging cable and charger also happen to be able to charge the phone exceptionally fast, while it’ll charge really slow if not at all plugged into a USB port.

Samsung has bolstered the Android OS (4.4.2 KitKat) with some unique features such as S-Voice for voice commands and dictation, and smart stay and pause features that will keep the screen on if you are looking at it. It also has air gestures, allowing you to preview items by hovering your finger over them. Add to that a fingerprint scanner and support for wireless charging and you have a very tech-heavy phone.

 

The Samsung Galaxy S5 may as well be what a Mercedes S-Class is to cars. Offering loads of features and tech, many of which later end up trickling down to other phones. While many detract from the Galaxy S5’s minimal styling, it has a very large set of features and is definitely one of the most powerful phones available on the market right now sold by varios service providers and also in the marketplace like this Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900H 16GB Factory Unlocked International Version - WHITE.  Of course, the  Samsung Galaxy S5 also comes in black, and the popular gold color. Just pick a sleeck case to protect it and you are ready to go. Have you tried one yet?
