We can call it the manufacturer’s flagship, the best of the best. Basically, under the cover of the device in this series we always found the best performing components, the highest quality materials, and cumulative experience of Samsung a year ago.
As its Samsung, the consumer wants a sustainable design, a powerful camera, great connectivity, basically a device to incorporate these features in a very pleasant way.
Configuration is one that works without problems, namely a Snapdragon 800 highest frequency with the 2.5 GHz. Comes with 2 GB RAM and 16 or 32 GB of storage. Connectivity is top 150Mbps LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi MIMO and USB 3.0 for faster transfer of internal memory. The camera is 16 megapixels, resembles the one from the Galaxy Note 3, and has a minimum focus of 0.3 seconds, this in good lighting conditions, obviously.
In parallel with the new smartphone, Samsung has presented the newest wearable device designed for active lifestyle named Samsung Gear Fit, first Super AMOLED curved screen accessory ever created.
The screen is very good, 5.1 inch FullHD resolution and a brightness of 500 cd/sq.m. Samsung Galaxy S5 is now waterproof and fingerprint scanner has of course the famous main menu button. On the back side near a flash sensor is a heart rate monitor, which can be used putting your finger on it.
Design is subjective, and the back cover, from the pictures sparked quite heated discussions, but in the hand it feels pretty good, with a surface similar to the Nexus 5.
