Samsung Galaxy S5 Overview

Published :

The Good

  • Fast Processor
  • Excellent Camera capablities
  • Water resistant

The Bad

  • Design
  • Build Quality not premium

The Bottom Line

Galaxy S5 is a frugal attempt by Samsung to keep its flagship sailing with all the bells and whistles. The design has not appealed to many. If you still desire to upgrade and opt for all the hardware available in this universe packed into a smartphone go for the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Samsung Galaxy S5 had enough grunt to fuel the rumor mill for a very long time. Galaxy S5 has been endowed with innovative features along with improved utility. It heralds with features like 16MP camera, finger print sensor, IP67 resistance and heart rate sensor. The S health application has been optimized to work with the heart sensor and it also generates a food chart automatically based on your health patterns. The Octa Core Adonis processor produces whopping combined speed of Quad 1.9 Ghz + Quad 1.3Ghz. The redesigned rear sports a puckered texture which is designed to offer more grip when held in palms. The IP67 water resistance certification lets you tuck your S5 in your shorts and go for a relaxing swim in the beach. 

Design and Build:

Samsung Galaxy S5 doesnt look strikingly different and embeds the Samsung DNA. The front fascade is dominated by the 5.1 inch screen and the slightly thick bezel that encases the front assembly. The menu button doubles up as a fingerprint scanner wherein you have to swipe your fingers to record it. The back key and the more information key are capacitive. The phone is wrapped with a thin metal strip across the periphery. The rear panel is surprisingly non glossy and instead finished with a soft perforated texture similar but more upmarket than the Note 3 artificial leather. Galaxy S5 camera lens is enclosed in a square protrusion with chrome lining. LED flash is located below the lens along with the heart beat sensor which senses your heart rate once you press and hold for 3 seconds with your fingertips.

Camera Performance:

Samsung has blessed the S5 with a 16MP primary camera and a 2MP camera as a secondary camera. It has contrast focus and selective focus option where in the camera focusses on a particular object and blurs or dims the surrounding which sort of adds a layer to the image. Face detection has been further improvised and the updated algorithm is expected to capture the faces more efficiently. Samsung has given an option to refocus the image after capturing it similar to the Nokia refocus. Galaxy S5 has the fastest auto focus unit focuses in just 1/3 of a second which is a feat considering the usual smartphone cameras take twice that time. The viewfinder has realtime photo and video preview which means that the picture you are seeing on the display is pre processed and shown to you instead of processing it post capturing. The ISOCELL technology takes care that the pixel retains the light without letting it spread to the neighbouring pixels leading to a well ventilated images.

Display Clarity:

Galaxy S5 has incorporated 5.1 inch screen with a resolution of 1080p. The viewing angles are good and the auto brightness works in complete sync with the surrounding. Touch Wiz UI has been give a subtle touch. The display is well lit even in the bright outdoors. The entire menu layout looks good with the round icons and the pinch of touch wiz. S5 has something called as automatic tint control which controls the tint level according to the surronding ambience.

Processing Speed:

Samsung Galaxy S5 is powered Adonis prime 2 which is essentially two quad core processors bundled together. The 2GB RAM which is fast enough to keep in pace with multitasking of any degree. The Adonis Prime processor is accompanied with Intel XMM 6360 pentaband receiver which combines the cellular network (3G) and Wi-Fi allowing speeds upto 42Mbps but still lack the LTE ability. Galaxy S5 is blindingly fast and never shows any signs of fatigue even when its loaded with umpteen number of application. Samsung has once again equipped its flagship with the best piece of hardware available in the universe. It would be good if  this chipset doesn't heat up like the Exynos processor in the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Power On It:

Galaxy Grand S5 is propelled by a 2800mAh battery which can honestly light up the device for atleast one complete day. The battery is still removable and not inbuilt. Galaxy S5 offers a generous talktime upto 21 hours and standby time of 390hrs.

Overall:

Samsung Galaxy S5 is a genuine attempt by the Korean manufacturer to stand out of the crowd with its innovations. Samsung seems to be following Apple a tad too keenly and devising their products accordingly. Galaxy S5 has the best hardware along with innovative features like the heartbeat sensor which also feeds any third party fitness apps. This smartphone is water resisitant and dust proof too. Samsung safely upgraded the Galaxy with 16MP camera with features like contrast focus and nifty auto focus but in the process omitted the much anticipated ISOCELL technology. Connectivity features are plenty and equally resourceful- 802.11 AC is a big leap from the 802.11 N WiFI as AC allows high speed data transfers and compatibility for routers upto 5 GHz. The LTE and Vo-LTE would have made the S5 a more desirable buy and future proof at the same time. We wish Samsung had not omitted the Snapdragon 801 processor which came with a LTE capablity. It will be hard to digest the fact that a premium flagship phone comes sans the LTE. We may soon see a variant with LTE support.

Android Phone With Great Camera, Good Internal Storage And Smooth Usage.

asked

Camera should be very good. good internal storage is required. Lag free experience while using the phone, so good processor and ram are required. will NOT use phone for high end gaming, only camera, popular social media and text messaging apps, and other features. Must be of a good renowned company such as samsung, HTC, motorola etc.. (NOT micromax or xioami)

asked

Hi Amol, Could u please specify your budget ?

asked

20-25 thousand

asked

Your go ahead with OnePlus One 64GB   Its got great specs , Camera , and since it runs Cynogenmod or Oxygen OS both of which are based on stock android due to which you will have smooth lag free usage. in your budget and based on your requirements this is the best option available.  If One Plus is not an option you can alternatively go for Samsung Galaxy S5   Which also meets all your requirements specially the Camera part.

asked

OnePlus One is a great phone, no doubt, but i am really skeptical about the after sales service, and frankly, i don't want to take that risk. Samsung Galaxy S5 is good too, but what do you think of Samsung Galaxy E7? 

asked

It runs a Snapdragon 410 which is very weak. its not worth that much money at all, One Plus after service used to be a little slow when they had issues with phone stocks but now they are selling without and invites. Which means service has improved greatly and the phone is unmatched in specs to price ratio and everyone who'd bought one is also very happy with their purchase. Since smooth performance and camera are your primary focus honestly there are no better phones than OnePlus One 64GB   and Samsung Galaxy S5  

asked

Thank you for your advice. 

Smart Phone With Nice Cam

Rich look and stylish design and good battery

Hi Nithin, I have three options for you in this case, If you love camera more than the performance in the long run of your smartphone, then I would recommend you to go for Samsung Galaxy S5 This will device has powerful processor and a great camera, but I fear that after 2.5 or 2 years, this device may start popping up UI lag issues for you. Samsung Galaxy S5 Nexus 5 is another good option with the stock android and a very powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor 800 which will be really great for the performance lovers. Google Nexus 5 Another latest and good option can be Motorola Moto X (2014) this one is the latest Stock Android device launched by Motorola and now it has similar processor as it was of Google Nexus 5 but its camera is little better. Perhaps, I should say that it lies between the compromises made between Google Nexus 5 and Samsung Galaxy S5. Moto X 2nd Gen

Is Samsung S5 Worth Buying Or Should Go For Iphone 5 Or Iphone 5c,

asked

Is samsung S5 worth buying or going for Iphone 5 or Iphone 5c .. what u suggets . How is the battery backup and overall performance of Samsung galaxy S5.. please help me out as i am not able to make up my mind since 3 months .

asked

Hi Faisal, Samsung Galaxy S5 operates on Android. So Galaxy S5 is a great device if you want to use Android OS, its battery backup is good and you will also have good number of applications to choose from. Apple iPhone has a smaller screen size but its iOS is really really good. Yes, you will not get freedom to do anything with iOS but unlike Android devices, life of an iPhone is much more as compared to an Android device, mainly because after few years of time period an Android device starts showing up UI lag and then most of the applications start crashing. but smaller screen is a huge turn off, and Samsung galaxy S5 is a decent device to buy. Hence if you have already used android device, then its time to try something new (iPhone 5 or 5S, iPhone 5S is much better than iPhone 5C or iPhone 5) Apple iPhone 5S but if you are using a smartphone for the first time my friend Go ahead with Samsung Galaxy S5. Samsung Galaxy S5 Cheers!!

Smartphone With Best Voice Clarity, Good Readability In Broad Daylight, Decent Memory And Camera From Established OEM

asked

Looking for sub 5" full HD, smartphone with wi-fi hotspot feature, 3G connectivity, easy connectivity with Laptop, Very good display even in broad Daylight, LED Torchlight, Internet browsing capability with email, Pocket friendly size. The OEM should have good after sales service.

asked

Hi Vivekanand, The part where you mentioned about the clarity in display under broad daylight is usually handled by high brightness of the device and usually all the Android devices under full brightness provide great clarity under the broad daylight. Apart from this recommending you about an OEM with good after sales is something really tricky, for this you need to have check on the repair centers of all the OEMs available in your locality. Under price constraints you can go for: Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus with Octa-Core Processor or Xiaomi Mi3 Xiaomi Mi3 with great performance, battery and camera. Under no price constraints you can choose either Samsung Galaxy S5 Samsung Galaxy S5 or Nexus 5 Google Nexus 5 32GB

Is It Worth Upgrading To Samsung Galaxy S5 From S4?

asked

I own a Galaxy S4. I wanted to know is it advisable to upgrade to the new Galaxy S5 launched in the MWC. I want the answer to be justifiable based on the specifications and the value for money.

asked

Anant, Galaxy S5 has brought with it many innovative features like the heart beat sensor and water resistance. Galaxy S5 has upgraded the camera with additional 3 mega pixel and pro camera features like the contrast focus and the HDR for video. Samsung has opted for the Qualcomm 801 quad core chipset clocked at 2.5 GHz which doesn't heat up like the Exynos in the S4. If the Samsung Galaxy starts retailing in India at somewhere around 38K then its a good buy.
