Samsung Galaxy S5 review: A solid phone that misses a few beats
14 November 2014
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy S5 may not be the latest and greatest phone on the market from Samsung , but the S5 is still incredibly relevant, in fact it's still one of the best selling Android devices as we head out of 2014. The S5 is barely 7 months old, but in the smartphone world that is a lifetime.
Summary: You know what you’re getting with the Samsung Galaxy S series at this point. Pick up an S5 and you know you’re going to end up with the fastest phone on the planet (at least for a few months), with the most incredible display, and bang up to date software.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a well refined piece of hardware; it�s not a game-breaking, revolutionary device that blows the its predecessor or the competition out of the water, but Samsung has made a number of welcome improvements in key areas and sometimes that's just what we need in annual updates.
Summary: Space...the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Notebookcheck as she continues her mission to explore the (Samsung) Galaxy S5. The crew is hoping for a result that is out of this world - and although the scores fall slightly short of expectations, the S5 nonetheless earns the...
Pros: Outstanding screen, Long-lasting battery, Very good and well explained software, Camera quality very good, Recording and playback quality of UHD videos, Resistant to water and dust, Supports many current transmission standards, USB 3.0 port, High quality GPS, High voice quality, Sturdy case, Batt...
Cons: Case is torsionally not completely rigid..., ... and complains with slight creaking when forces are applied, Pop-up warnings to close the covers properly get annoyoing, Compared to the predecessor, only some details have been improved, Not as easy to maintain, Finger print sensor not always easy ...
Excerpt: Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 during the 2014 Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona earlier this year, and just a few months later it’s available all around the globe, and from major carriers in the United States for $199 with a new two-year contract.
Pros: Great Camera, Solid Battery Life, IP67 Resistant against Dust and Water
Cons: TouchWiz Needs to Go, Heart Rate Monitor is Gimmicky, Not as premium looking or feeling as other flagships
Excerpt: “It’s all in the little things.” It’s a common axiom in sports, in design, and in life. Inches make champions; big things have small beginnings; a small leak can sink a giant ship. It’s a tired cliché, but it’s true. It’s even true in smartphones.
Pros: Great display, Excellent performance, Camera can take amazing pictures, Waterproof
Cons: Overwhelming features and options, Cheap, boring design, Camera struggles in low light
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy S5 has arrived and starting tomorrow April 11, 2014 it will be available in certain markets through AT&T and other carriers. But hopefully you were a true devotee and were right on top of it and pre-ordered so that you can have it in time for the weekend.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a technological tour de force, cramming the latest features into a 5.1-inch chassis. Sadly, although the specs may impress, it's no design classic, and it reminds us (in a bad way) of an art deco trinket.
