Samsung Galaxy S5 review | The S5 delivers fantastic specs and an amazing screen and is only let down by an uninspiring design.
The wonderful smartphone incorporates some of the most outstanding designs and features which make it top notch. Every feature in Samsung Galaxy S5 including its camera, build, design, shape, screen and so forth is exceptional. The smartphone is packed with a lot of applications; of course you cannot expect anything less from a flagship Android smartphone.
Before talking about the design of this smartphone, it is important to note the competition in the smartphone market. The HTC One M8 featured a metal unibody design. The Apple iPhone 4’s design is indeed a wow. Of course, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has a nice design but it does not lead the trend in the industry. The probably reason for this is the high cost of manufacture of the smartphone. The smartphone is water-resistant. This is a major change and difference between Galaxy S4 and S5. In addition, the smartphone is dust resistant. The Galaxy S5 has a removable battery. This is a plus and an edge it has over some other smartphones. The size of the device is 5.50 by 2.85 by 0.32 and it weighs about 4.92 ounces.
Samsung Galaxy features one of the best smartphone screens in the market. As a matter of fact, the device screen is one of the features that make it notable. Samsung Galaxy uses a Full HD Super AMOLED screen. This screen allows the device to have more brightness than its predecessor. The resolution is 1920 x1080.
