The New Samsung Galaxy S5 – Is It Really Worth It?

What’s a better way to bring your products in front of the whole world if not by having the world’s most famous selfie taken with one of them? Despite numerous claims that Ellen Degeneres’ Oscar selfie was not a marketing stunt pulled by Samsung, but just a mere coincidence, the subject still generated a lot of buzz – enough to get a lot of people to grow fond of Samsung and their products. The timing couldn’t have been better either: they were just making the final preps to launch the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 in April but, to the disappointment of those who are only looking for new and innovative features, the Galaxy S5 doesn’t have so many. This is not to say that the Galaxy S5 is a bad phone, because it’s far from that, it’s just that Samsung didn’t choose the “let’s bring new tech and features”-way, but rather the “let’s perfect the features we have”-way. As a result, the Galaxy S5 can be considered a perfected version of the Galaxy S4. The design of the phone is very similar to the S4’s, the screen being slightly bigger (by 0.1 inches) and the home button having fingerprint-reading functionality added. At a first glance, these features may even go unnoticed, but once you start using the S5, the improvements become clearly visible. For example, while the size of the screen didn’t receive much of an upgrade, the tech behind it did, proof being the fact that it was described as being the “best smartphone display ever tested” by DisplayMate, one of the biggest names in the industry of smartphone displays calibrators.
Another component that received an important upgrade is the camera: the Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a 16-megapixel camera with better lens and an improved interface. The “engine” of the phone wasn’t neglected either, the S5 coming with a quad-core processor running at 2.5 GHz – enough to keep multitasking-addicts happy.
Just because the Samsung Galaxy S5 doesn’t come with a long list of new features doesn’t mean it doesn’t have any new features at all. The phone comes with IP67 certification for water and dust resistance, so you won’t have to worry so much if you accidentally go for a swim and forget it in your pocket. It also comes with a heart-rate sensor you can use on its own or with a Samsung wearable such as the Gear Fit.
Overall, if you’re looking for a smartphone that’s elegant and powerful, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is definitely worth a try.
