The Samsung Galaxy S5 continues to impress in the smartphone arena. The camera has evolved to give clearer, faster snaps. The fitness-tracking abilities of the S5 are excellent with its new S Health app and a dedicated heart rate monitor on the rear. A fingerprint scanner adds to the most secure Galaxy phone ever made.
The battery is larger, the screen bigger and brighter, the processor quicker and the design altered.
The spec sheet certainly doesn't let it down: a 2.5GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 2800mAh (removable) battery, 16GB of memory (with up to 128GB extra through microSD), and one of the world's most vibrant screens that's been extended to 5.1-inches and added biometrics.
