Samsung Galaxy S5

Originally reviewed by 11 April 2014

Key features:

  • Fantastic 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen
  • Versatile, high-quality 16-megapixel camera
  • Excellent battery life
  • Water-resistant design
Fitting happily into the role as Samsung Galaxy S4 successor, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has the qualities to make it a worthwhile upgrade for loyal S Series fans.

While it looks and feel similar to its predecessor, the new slightly soft-touch textured back is a vast improvement on the glossy plastic of old.

Some of the new features like the fingerprint and heart rate sensors are hit and miss, but the standout feature is undeniably the display. Up to 5.1-inches it delivers deep blacks, rich colours and the kind of vibrancy to make it one of the best smartphone displays for watching video.

With its Snapdragon 801 processing power and day and half battery life, the S5 is set once again to be one of the top Android phones to own.

Review price: £499.99
