Samsung Galaxy S5 – the smartphone which you will love to use

DSC07355

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the latest challenger from the South Korean brand to launch into an ever more crowded market, but at least this time the phone has focused on what users might actually want rather than useless gimmicks.

The Galaxy S4 was a strong phone in spite of the insistence that being able to wave your hands over a phone or scroll with your eyes was a good thing.

The Galaxy S5 takes the DNA of that handset and improves on it in most areas. It’s a quiet improvement though, which may disappoint a lot of people looking to see the world’s highest-res display and an all new metal chassis, but it’s one that at least delivers where consumers need it.

Inside you have A LOT of new technology and sensors, tallying nicely with the myriad rumours we heard about biometrics playing a big part in the next Galaxy handset. True to the rumours, there’s a fingerprint scanner located inside the Home button, and a heart rate monitor on the back just under the camera port. The handset is also water and dust resistant with IP67 certification – which probably means there’ll be no Active version this time around.
