28 May 2014
  • Summary: The Galaxy S5 boasts one of the best Android experiences currently available, but Samsung can no longer claim unchecked dominance over the market; HTC has upped its game this year, while Sony, LG, Motorola and others are quickly learning from past mistakes. If you have a Galaxy S4, there is little reason to shell out the money for its successor, but a Galaxy S3 owner approaching the two-year market in his or her contract should feel comfortable making the leap to...

Notebookcheck
11 May 2014
  • 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 smartphone-crown.
  • 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, Battery can be swapped out, High performance, Doesn't get very hot, Low power consumption under low load, Ultra Power Savings Mode extends battery life, Charges quickly, That Sams...
  • 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 to use, Somewhat lackluster random read and write performance, Not a lot - although HTC's speaker system is something that Samsung should take a look at

  • Summary: With its gorgeous display, powerful Snapdragon 801 processor and enhanced camera, the Samsung Galaxy S5 easily eclipses its predecessor along with nearly all other smartphones on the market.

  • Pros: Beautiful display, Water-resistant chassis, Improved camera is easier to use, All-day battery life
  • Cons: Inconsistent fingerprint reader, Plastic body, Annoying USB port flap

  • Summary: Samsung's Galaxy S5 is a stellar Android smartphone. Its more refined interface, practically perfect display and improved camera make it a worthy successor to the S4. Add to that more than 8 hours of battery life and a water-resistant chassis, and the Galaxy S5 finds itself at a level occupied by few other smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy S5

LAPTOP Magazine
10 April 2014
  • Summary: The Galaxy S5 represents a shift for Samsung away from throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks to placing bets on fewer innovations. That strategy largely pays off with this handset. While the fingerprint reader could be more consistent, the S5 is a more refined product than the S4. We love the bright and colorful display, longer battery life and sharper camera with real-time HDR.
  • Pros: Best-in-class display, Water-resistant chassis, Sharp and feature-rich camera, Useful fitness app, Long battery life
  • Cons: Inconsistent fingerprint sensor, Annoying flap door for charging port, Plastic design
