Samsung Galaxy S5 Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. is a South Korean multinational electronics company which is a flagship subsidiary of the Samsung Group and has its clients worldwide. Along with manufacturing smartphones, tablets and other consumer electronics, this company is a major manufacturer of electronic components such as chips, lithium-ion batteries, hard drive devices and flash memory  for clients such as Apple, Sony, HTC and Nokia. Usually Samsung launches its new flagships after MWC every year but this time it was a little different. It launched its long awaited Samsung Galaxy S5, yesterday, at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona and almost all the rumors about this newest flagship turns out to be true and reliable. This Korean company has never stopped loading and changing its flagship according to the needs of the market and Samsung Galaxy S5 is just another proof of this notion. Scroll down to know the confirmed details about this fantastic smartphone.
Talking of the design, Samsung has incorporated this set in a polycarbonate case which gives it a premium look, though some are finding the design not much appealing and graceful. The screen size gets even bigger this time and the screen resolution simply aims to provide you a crystal clear on-screen view. As all other models, the alerts can be notified either by using the vibration mode or via MP3 or WAV ringtones. To better your audio experience, it is provided with a built in loudspeaker and an audio jack as well so that you have full flexibility in enjoying your music. Talking of the RAM size, it is shipped with a spacious, monstrous RAM which means you can conveniently go for high end games, applications and super-heavy multitasking. Not only this, the company provides its fans a large internal storage capacity and also a microSD card slot so that you can expand the memory as and when needed. In a smarrtphone like this, you can expect almost all the basic and advanced connectivity features so that you are always connected to your social network locally and globally. It is also provided with a really good camera so if photography is your passion, this phone is going to serve you really well. You can also go for better video calling and self-clicks with its front camera. Working on one of the most advanced operating system, this smartphone is hosting quite an advanced chipset which offers you a seamless experience with this handset. To enjoy all these exciting and new features all day long, the company provides it with a stout and a powerful battery. So, you have a whale of time to savor its functionalities and features.

User Interface and UI functionality

Leaks suggesting that this set would host a metal body seems to be true as Samsung has provide S5 with mostly a polycarbonate body which according to many gives it a premium look while for some it is not much appealing. The back panel has a soft, dimpled touch just like the competing Nexus 7. The dimensions of 142 x 72.5 x 8.1mm and a weight of 145g totally confirms that this set is average-weighted and you can work on it for long continuous hours without feeling much burden. The overall design in such that it gives you a solid feel when held in hand. One major improvement over S4 is its IP67 waterproofing which brings S5 in line with the Sony Xperia mobiles. You can dunk S5 in water for 30 minutes and it won’t complaint a bit about it! This smartphone features a slightly larger 5.1 inches super AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 1080 X 1920 pixelsand a pixel density of ~431 ppi (pixels per inch). The on-screen view is just perfect and the bigger size allows you to have a comfortable and strain free reading, playing and watching time. The front of the screen is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect it from shocks and scratches. You may expect some major changes in the user interface as this smartphone features the very new Android 4.4.2 version (KitKat). One major highlight you will see in its interface is the built-in fingerprint scanner. This application is used for three things. First, it helps you to swiftly unlock the phone which is very much similar to the Touch ID sensor of Apple’s iPhone 5S. Second, with this application you can instantly go for online mobile payments via PayPal integration and third, you can protect your important and private documents with a Private Mode which is unlocked only by your fingerprint.

Multimedia features

A company like Samsung will surely not compromise on the multimedia section and with no doubts we can say that its built-in music and video player will offer an excellent playback time. The music player supports almost all the famous files like MP3, FLV etc. and its video player supports files like MP4, VC1, DivX, WMV9, and HD. The company certainly provides it with an in-built loudspeaker along with a 3.5mm audio jack, to plug in your earphones, so that you can enjoy your music and videos the way you want.

Pictures and Video quality

Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a whooping 16 MP primary camera with a camera resolution of 4640 x 3480 pixels. With such a built-in camera, you need not to carry a separate one with you if you are a dedicated shutterbug. Some basic features of this camera are Dual Shot, Simultaneous HD video and image recording, touch focus, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, image stabilization, HDR, Autofocus, LED flash, and dual video recording – one at 2160p@30fps and other at 1080p@60fps. Its rear camera can record 4K videos at 30 frames per second and the company also claims that this smatphone offers the world’s fastest auto-focus speed up to 0.3 seconds. It also features a 2.1 MP front camera for better video calls and self clicks.

Internet support

Samsung Galaxy S5 supports all those features which can keep you connected to your network globally. Some such features are GPRS, EDGE, 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct and can also act as Wi-Fi hotspot which means you can share your network on all other Wi-Fi enabled devices. Along with this, it also supports a large number of 4G LTE frequency bands with LTE Category 4 standard.

Internal and External Memory

The company has shipped this handset with a massive 2 GB of RAM which seems to be very competing in the market. Such a good RAM means you can easily go for high end gaming and heavy multitasking and you won’t feel even the slightest of the lag. Not only this, the company also offers a good internal storage with this handset. It comes in two variants – one with 16 GB and other with 32 GB of internal memory and both the variants are equipped with a microSD card slot which supports memory expansion up to 64 GB. Along with all this storage, it is also provides you with 50 GB of free cloud storage on Dropbox.

Applications and Gaming

This smartphone hosts a huge collection of pre-installed applications. Some of these features and applications are accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, RGB ambient light, Gesture (IR), and heart rate sensors, threaded view of text messages, MMS, Email, IM, Push Email, HTML5 enabled browser, AGPS support and GLONASS, Java MIDP emulator, SNS integration, Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, TV-out (via MHL 2 A/V link), Wireless charging (market dependent), ANT+ support, S-Voice natural language commands and dictation, Smart stay, Smart pause, Smart scroll, Air gestures, MP4/H.263/H.264 player, MP3/eAAC+/WAV/Flac player, Document viewer, Photo viewer/editor, Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Google Talk, Picasa, Voice memo/dial, and Predictive text input etc. All the famous games can be downloaded from Google Play Store and numerous other applications can be downloaded for free from the Android market. One major highlight of the phone is its new iPhone-like fingerprint sensor integrated with the phone's home button. The finger scanner offers a biometric screen-locking feature and mobile payment experience to its customers. This smartphone also provides an enhanced S Health 3.0 and some more tools which can help people stay fit and well. Along with this, it also provides a comprehensive personal fitness tracker to help you monitor and manage your diet and exercise records and monitor your heart rate as well. Basically, round the back, the company has provided this smartphone with a heart rate sensor which works very well with Samsung’s revised S Health app. The company also claims that the S5 users can further customize their experience with its third party app ecosystem and can also enjoy its ability to pair up with next-generation Gear products for real-time fitness coaching.

Battery Backup

Working on Android 4.4.2 version (KitKat) and being powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 Quad-core 2.5 GHz krait processor, this smartphone offers a 2800 mAh Li-Ion battery with a claimed standby time of 390 hours and talk time of 21 hours. This means you have your S5 throughout your working hours and there is no chance that you are stranded in the middle of your work.

Connectivity Offered

Samsung Galaxy S5 hosts many connectivity features that allow you to stay connected to your network all the time. Global connectivity features will include GPRS, GSM, EDGE, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, 4G LTE, 3G and 2G whereas local connectivity features will include Bluetooth v4.0, NFC, infrared port, and USB 3.0.


With some new and modified additions, this smartphone is sure to rival not only its own sibling but also some of the very top competing brands like Apple, LG, HTC and Sony. If we talk about the screen size, 4.8 inch of S3 and 5 inch of S4 conveniently surrenders in front of 5.1 inch of S5. S5 sure is giving a tough competition to Apple’s iPhone with its fingerprint sensor and a bigger screen. Where S5 uses Android 4.4.2 version, LG G2 still uses the 4.2.2 Jelly Bean version as its operating system. S5’s chipset offers a 2.5 GHz clock speed while Sony Xperia Z2’s chipset offers 2.3 GHz clock speed. Not only this, the former set comes in two variants i.e. 16/32 GB while the latter set comes only in 16 GB.

High five: Samsung's best phone gets better

Here's why the Samsung Galaxy S5 should grab your attention: it looks good, it performs very well, and it has everything you need to become a fixture in nearly every aspect of your life. But, like a candidate running for reelection, the GS5 gets where it is today based on experience and wisdom, not on flashy features or massive innovation. With the exception of a few nonessential hardware and software additions -- like the fingerprint scanner and novel heart-rate monitor -- and a few design twea Read full Review

Samsung Galaxy S5 review: a solid improvement, but don't rush to upgrade

When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 and a trio of Gear smartwatches, the company made a big to-do about how it listens to its customers. We know, we know: Every company's supposed to be doing that. But remember, this is Samsung we're talking about. It dominates the Android market by such a wide margin that it makes rivals like LG and HTC look like quaint startups. Put it another way: Samsung could release a phone with no improvements, and it'd still sell millions.At least, that's how it used to Read full Review

Samsung Galaxy S5 review

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is likely to be one of the best selling devices of 2014. It is the successor to the incredibly successful Galaxy S4 that, despite the attempts of HTC, Sony Mobile and LG, sold by the truckload.But the launch of the SGS5 was overshadowed by rumour and hype that made it difficult for Samsung to match expectations. Talk of a metal body and higher-resolution display weren't to prove true, with Samsung's big play instead being focused towards health.But the Samsung Galaxy S5 mat Read full Review

Review: Samsung Galaxy S5

Ive been struggling to find something original to say about the Samsung Galaxy S5. The phones already been panned by many reviewers, and I didnt particularly like it either. After using it for about two weeks, I still have no idea what the hell Im doing most of the time. But, honestly, the biggest challenge has been reconciling the frequently poor user experience with the phones legitimately great hardware.
