Samsung Galaxy S5

 

When's the best time to buy a flagship phone? When it gets replaced by a new flagship phone, of course. Following on from the announcement of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has been given a second wind, courtesy of an update to...

Fantastic screen ; Still one of the best cameras around ; Now updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop ; Update has improved fingerprint sensor ; Better battery life than S6 ; Has microSD and water resistance

Not the prettiest of 2014 phones ; Processor still decent, but behind the times

Samsung Galaxy S5 review

 

Can the new Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone blow away the competition?

Updated design ; Camera innovation ; Cleaner UI

Too big for some ; Slightly delicate ; Unreliable sensors

Samsung Galaxy S5

 

An improvement on the S4, but not radical enough

Fast and powerful ; Big, replaceable battery ; Colourful video ; Quick, decent camera ; Eye-catching features

Average sound ; Erratic Finger Sensor ; Plastic design

Samsung has now moved into Apple’s territory: it has a hugely popular product that will sell well, regardless of the critical reception.

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. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a fantastic...

Great display, good camera performance, fast connectivity, software makes good use of larger display, reasonable battery life

Plastic build, navigation of the user interface feels slower than it should be

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a fantastic handset. The design could be seen as playing it safe, although the addition of waterproofing and presenting a compact and lightweight device has much merit, as does continued access to the battery.

Samsung Galaxy S5 review

 

The most feature-packed smartphone on the planet, tested [updated with video]

plenty of power ; sharp, vivid screen ; detailed snapper ; tons of features ; waterproof

a design that few will find beautiful ; UI can still be confusing ; not the best camera indoors and in low light

Big, bold and stuffed with tech, the Galaxy S5 is a bona fide superphone with some very stiff competition

Samsung Galaxy S5 review

 

Samsung goes for evolution over revolution... again.

Amazing screen ; Great battery life ; Hugely powerful

Creaky design ; Bottom dock locked down ; Unnecessary heart rate monitor ; Slow background de-focus

Powerful, competent and with a whole new UI, it's a shame that Samsung hasn't progressed further with the look of its new challenger.

Samsung Galaxy S5 review: A great smartphone if you can still find it

 

Powerful, with a fantastic camera and incredible battery life, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is a superb all-round smartphone

Even though it's been replaced several times now, the Galaxy S5 is still quite a phone. Now, at less than £150 SIM-free, it's an awful lot of handset for the price - especially if the Gear 2, Gear Fit or heartbeat sensor are of particular interest to...

Samsung Galaxy S5 review

 

We've added this little update to inform you that the Galaxy S5 is no longer the current flagship smartphone from Samsung. The firm has launched the Galaxy S6 and we rather like it. There's also a Galaxy S6 Edge which uses curved screen technology to...

Things haven't changed much from the Galaxy S4 but Samsung, as usual, has packed the Galaxy S5 with features. However, a lot are somewhat unnecessary. The heart rate monitor is a prime example and while the fingerprint scanner is cool, it's difficult...
