Samsung Galaxy S5: Reviews

“…the Samsung Galaxy S5 hits all the important spec points: the camera is a great performer, the display is excellent, and hardcore games play fast and fluid thanks to the on-board power. Yes it might be a handset playing it safe, but there’s a huge amount of scope for the S5 to deliver beyond its current worth with ever-advancing apps. As it stands, with what we’ve got right now, this is still one excellent smartphone.”

“We called the Samsung Galaxy S4 a thing of beauty and the S5 is even better. It feels better, looks better and does more than its predecessor. S Health is a great addition and a genuine alternative to other fitness and health apps out there. What’s more, the camera is much improved and the interface feels cleaner and less cluttered.”

“The camera is solid and its new UI clean, and while the heart-rate sensor takes a little getting used to for finger positioning, once you’re familiar it’s a useful addition for those who want to track basic fitness without spending on a dedicated wristband. Water-resistance is something we find ourselves wishing every phone offered.”
